Sixth & Daniel

James "Jimmy" Carter
Maximizing the potential of your mind and body is Jimmy's specialty. He is the owner of Ingrained2Train in Naperville, Illinois.  We discussed his journey to unlocking that desire to help others from stepping foot on campus after his first year at UIUC.  He also broke down exactly how difficult it can be as a student-athlete one day and then run your own business later in life.  Jimmy gives great tips and perspectives to new students and potential entrepreneurs.  As per usual on Sixth & Daniel, we also branched out and discussed pizza, Ghostbusters, the legend of Giovanti's chicken strips, and heading to the Rose Bowl!

Dr. Natalie Hallinger
I could've continued talking for hours with my new friend Natalie, and boy, did we cover a lot of ground in this episode!  Dr. Halliger is a very respected member in her field, so we, of course, talk about her journey to the tech start-up world, the process of choosing secondary education, and her experiences teaching at Loyola. To get there...we touched on jewelry making, comic book creation, sensory motorcycle rides, the "importance" of grades, the behavioral studies of litter, and quite possibly my new favorite cocktail.  Thank you for joining us!

Dr. Patricia Deldin

Dr. Deldin is currently a professor at the University of Michigan in the Departments of Psychology and Psychiatry. She is also the Founder and CEO of "Mood Lifters." I uncover that Patricia is a first generation college grad, avid reader, former track star, and maybe currently dreaming of a burrito as big as her head. In this episode, we primarily focus on Dr. Deldin's career path, advice for current students, and how she came to start her own company.
