142: Chatting with Terry Tucker about the Lessons Life Taught Him

Chats from the Blog Cabin

159: Chatting with the owners of The Cookie Department
It was in 2019 that The Cookie Department began to take its current shape as America’s most delicious Ketogenic Cookie on the market. Resnikoff’s wife Elannah has had a long journey of healing from the debilitating effects of traumatic brain injuries. Consistently her team of doctors had recommended incongruous treatment protocols, with her body often feeling like a trial and error test subject. A rare area of agreement was that the ketogenic diet would decrease her inflammation and nerve pain, stabilize her blood sugar and lift her brain fog. Keto has been a huge win for their family!  Due to the stringency of medical keto, Elannah wasn’t able to indulge in her husband’s line of gourmet cookies, and there weren’t yet any ketogenic friendly sweets on the market. So, early in their relationship Resnikoff started baking her indulgent treats without sugar, carbs, or gluten. As the keto-friendly food space grew, the Resnikoffs sampled every keto cookie out there. None have been as satiating as those Akiva whipped up, so together they decided to transition the cookie line to focus solely on some of their favorite keto creations. website Coupon Code FrugalMom 20%

156: Chatting about Service Dogs
Join me as I chat about service dogs with people from Animal Farm Foundation. Animal Farm Foundation’s service dog program takes a revolutionary approach to changing the lives of people and dogs. The dogs that are selected by AFF for training are labeled “pit bulls’ by the shelters and rescue organizations. This is a marked contrast with the pure-bred, purpose-bred dogs that are usually trained for service roles. Through this approach, AFF debunks negative stereotypes and reduces discrimination against both dogs and people. You know this particular episode hits close to home since we adopted Gigi - a pit bull mix last fall.

155: Chatting with Roland Achenjang
Join me as I chat with Roland Achenjang. He is the author of Who and Why You Are. Like you, life provided him with an abundant variety of challenges and setbacks that never seem to end. For over twenty-eight years, he questioned why this was the case. He struggled to make sense of it all by employing his Catholic religious teachings, pharmacy education, and business school knowledge to no avail. In frustration, he taught himself to meditate (happy medicine for the mind) starting in 2013/2014. After years of maintaining the practice, he experienced a spiritual awakening on August 21st, 2018. It helped him remember who and why he truly was and put the entire Earth life experience into a perspective Ihe now believe makes more sense to me than any understanding he held before. He also now believes what he remembered can be applied universally to everyone. Grab his book Who and Why You Are {Affiliate Link} website: Https://

He steeled himself to face the consequences of the sinful life he was living. And he wondered in angst, “How in the world did I get here?” His Book The Devil Thought He Had Me! is White’s raw, compelling story of resilience and survival, and profound testimony to the power of God’s grace and mercy.

142: Chatting with Terry Tucker about the Lessons Life Taught Him
He has reinvented himself frequently over his career. After he graduated from college at The Citadel (where he played NCAA Division I basketball), he was employed in the Marketing Department at the corporate headquarters of Wendy’s International in Dublin, Ohio. From there, he worked in hospital administration for Riverside Methodist Hospital in Columbus, Ohio. After getting married and moving to California for his wife's job, he became the Customer Service Manager for an academic publishing company in Santa Barbara. After their daughter was born and they moved to Cincinnati, Ohio, he became a police officer with the Cincinnati Police Department, where he was a SWAT Hostage Negotiator. Following a family relocation to Texas, he started a school security consulting business and coached high school girls basketball in Houston. Each time he took on a new job, he had to develop new skills and faced different challenges. There was always a significant learning curve with every new position. But his greatest challenge began in early 2012 when he was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer called Acral Lentiginous Melanoma, which presented on the bottom of his foot. By the time the melanoma was detected, it had metastasized to a lymph node in his groin. His cancer is so rare (only about 6,500 people are diagnosed with this form of malignancy in the U.S. each year). One thing he learned during all his pain and suffering is that you have two choices. You can succumb to the debilitating discomfort and misery, or you can learn to embrace it and use it to make you a stronger and better human being. He chose the latter. There were times he felt so poorly and was in so much agony that he prayed to die. Each day was a struggle to use his mind to override his body's apathy and distress. He realizes pain and discomfort can beat you to your knees and keep you there if you let it. But he also came to appreciate that I could use my hurting and anguish to make me stronger and more resolute. He was no better at dealing with pain and discomfort than the next person. But every day, he found a way to survive, with the knowledge that he would need to do it again the following morning. He recently wrote a book, entitled Sustainable Excellence, Ten Principles to Leading Your Uncommon and Extraordinary Life, to help people find and live their uncommon and extraordinary life. The ten principles outlined in the book will provide the bedrock necessary to form the foundation of unshakable beliefs and dedicated behaviors to reinforce your attitude, no matter how much pain you must endure or how many obstacles you must overcome. His hope is that people who read the book will lead a life of significance, as well as a life of success. Unfortunately, his cancer experience hasn't ended with his conquering the disease. The melanoma that had plagued him  for over six years returned in 2017. But he refused to be a victim of this malignancy. He vowed to continue his fight. He knew the only way cancer could win is if he gave up or gave in to the disease, or it killed him. Motivational Check Website: Twitter: LinkedIn: Facebook:  Terry's Book Sustainable Excellence

132: Chatting about the Power of Human Touch with Epiphany Jordan
Join me as I chat with Epiphany Jordan who is on a mission to re-design the human touch. For the past seven years, She has been practicing, researching, writing, and thinking about nurturing human touch, or platonic touch.  Last year she published “Somebody Hold Me: The Single Person’s Guide to Nurturing Human Touch” Grab here { affiliate link} Our culture currently considers touch between adults as romantic or sexual, instead of part of health and wellness, and it’s a paradigm that isn’t working for many single AND partnered people. COVID-19 has illuminated how important touch is for health and happiness, and how its absence is affecting us. I’m interested in what touch will look like post-virus. Will we be too afraid to touch each other? Will we go back to taking it for granted? Will we come out of the experience unable to connect and relate to other humans? Or will we use the Great Pause to rethink who, when, and why we touch others? Will we recognize it as integral to our biology, and our experience of being human, and begin to use it as a tool for cooperation and connection?

127: Chatting with Julie about Clearing the Clutter from Our Lives
Join me as I chat with Julie who is a mindset coach. She helps people clear the clutter from their minds. Physical clutter can cost us time (not being able to find what we need when we need it) and money (paying bills late). Mental clutter can create anxiety and overwhelm while emotional clutter of not acknowledging our emotions can create bad habits like emotional eating. We can have clutter in our relationships when our inner circle is not supportive and we can waste a lot of energy on comparing ourselves that creates spiritual clutter. Spiritual clutter can come in the form of not forgiving or health clutter by not taking care of ourselves. All of this clutter affects us not only personally but professionally as well.

102: Chatting with Reneé Rodriguez
Join me as I chat with Reneé Rodriguez. She helps women in a custody battle against a narcissistic co-parent to go into family court and get the custody arrangement that's best for their kids.  These women have suffered psychological abuse at the hands of their former partners and are working to ensure their children are protected from further cruelty. Her company, Best Foot Forward, has been around for 2.5 years and 2020 was the year she pivoted her business plan and got results. What's remarkable about this is not just that it started to take off during the pandemic, but also that she is able to do it as a single mom with a kid doing online learning at home--which meant she only had the days her child is with her co-parent to build her company...and it's working, thanks to a zero-space calendar and a simple enrollment funnel. Her turning point was during her own custody battle, after leaving a relationship rife with mental abuse.  As a daughter of a Puerto Rican father whose family sought a better life on the mainland when he was 12 and a mother who only later pursued her GED, education and hard work was impressed upon her.   Check out her website

Shelley Buck, wife of FROZEN and FROZEN 2 director Chris Buck, and Kathy Curtis are the authors of Leave Your Light On: The Musical Mantra Left Behind by an Illuminating Spirit. A book about Parenting, memoir, grief, and cancer. Shelley Buck was the mother of 3 boys when her oldest was diagnosed with cancer at 22 years old. What happened next was a transformation of the parent-child relationship while Shelley learned how to let Ryder deal with his diagnosis his way. Ryder ultimately beat cancer, only to lose his life later in a car accident. Ryder became the inspiration for a new character in FROZEN 2 and for one of the film’s new songs. Her new book, Leave Your Light On, is a vivid and poignant look at their journey and the intricacies of letting our loved ones be the people they are meant to be. Shelley and her co-author Kathy Curtis are now covering topics around grief and healing for audiences. They cover exploring the light our loved ones leave behind and the bridge between that light and our own healing. Grief is a mysterious emotion— it can cripple us, empower us, and at times, be a major motivator in what changes us. Kathy and Shelley talk about using the light from our passed loved ones to shape that recovery and how to use it as a tool to live with more energy and purpose.   Grab the Book Here

Her interest in addressing equity in design began early in her career when she was advised by a senior architect that her first mistake towards reaching licensure was having a child; her first was 7 months old at the time.

Listen in on a mom’s passionate plea for people to wear masks during the pandemic. Think of the lives you could be saving. Remember CDC recommends that people wear masks in public settings. Around people who don’t live in your household, especially when other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain. Masks may help prevent people who have COVID-19 from spreading the virus to others Masks are most likely to reduce the spread of COVID-19 when they are widely used by people in public settings.. COVID-19 can be spread by people who do not have symptoms and do not know that they are infected. That’s why it’s important for everyone to wear masks in public settings So please for the families of people that are at high risk wear a mask Follow Chats from the Blog Cabin on Instagram -  Catch the lives on Facebook -  Watch the Youtube Channel -
