From The Ashes
Meet triumph and disaster and treat those two imposters the same.
As a culture we have been lied to about what it truly takes to be great. We are inundated with stories of natural-born heroes and overnight successes. Triumphs are magnified while defeat is hidden. We are sold on this idea that either we are talented, or we are not, either we have grit or we do not and either we are going to make it or we will not. Our heroes and celebrities seem so distant from us and represent an unattainable goal.
So often we are hamstrung by their own mental models and emotional barriers. They are constantly holding ourselves back from blossoming into the people we are meant to be. In this program you will hear raw stories of triumph and defeat from people just like you who have beaten the odds and have gotten back up, from the ashes. From the Ashes is broadcast live every Friday at 11 AM Pacific Time on the VoiceAmerica Empowerment Channel.
Define your Legacy

This interview is a little different. I spoke with Mike Oppenheim of the Coffin Talk Podcast about death.

imperfect: The Heart-Centered Leadership Podcast
In this episode of Imperfect: The Heart-Centered Leadership Podcast I’m interview by Deb Crowe about Toxic Masculinity in the workplace. We talk about how this value set hinders the development of psychological safety, clear communication, and employee retention. The “suck it up” and “lead by fear” mentality may produce results in the short term but, down the line, leads directly to resentment and self-sabotaging behaviors. Tune in to hear more about how to detect toxic masculinity and, more importantly, how to evolve past it.
Heidi's LemonAid Stand
Heidi started hosting the LemonAid Stand live radio talk show, over 20 years ago, in 1999! It all came about when Heidi was dealing with thoughts of suicide, inadequacy, and dealing with infertility. She realized as she reached out to others and heard their stories, she would be uplifted and inspired no matter what she was going through. I went on her show to talk about living in shame, lying about who I was, and developing a drug addict persona. In my lemon to lemonaid story I share how I turned that around and started helping other men to grow into their own power.
