Boone Cutler and Geoff Dardia: Warfighters (Combat Veterans) Made The Decision To Take Their Health & Healing In Their Own Hands
Join Patti Katter and her guests, Boone Cutler and Geoffrey Dardia, as they talk about the book called FPL, which stands for Functional Personal Lifestyle. Boone and Geoff wrote the book FPL for military veterans to help them understand the different wounds and treatments available for those who have been wounded in the war. Don’t miss out on this episode! You’ll surely be touched by how courageous our military veterans are and that they deserve all the support they should receive after surviving the hardships in war. In this episode, you’ll learn: · Boone and Geoff’s amazing partnership and how they both inspired each other. · They wrote the book FPL to empower warfighters to take ownership of their health. · A fantastic book for warfighters by warfighters, trying to help people stop suffering. · If you don’t take ownership of your health, you’re never going to get better. The second you do take your health into your own hands, that’s when things change. · Getting rid of the mentality that military veterans are disabled people. · The people working in the Task Force Dagger Foundation Health Initiative Program are incredible and they have a very inspiring mission. · And much more! ~ About Boone Cutler: Boone Cutler is an author, columnist, music video director, and Warfighter Rights-Leader. He holds the distinguished honor of being the first nationally recognized radio talk show personality who is also a combat veteran of the current war. Boone began writing his Iraq War-inspired autobiographical account of what he experienced, Voodoo in Sadr City, during his combat tour in Iraq, and completed it during his two-year recovery from wartime injuries at Walter Reed Army Medical Center, during the Neglect Scandal of 2007. America currently loses at least 23 Warfighters (22 veterans + 1 active duty) to suicide every single day. About Geoff Dardia and Task Force Dagger: The Task Force Dagger Foundation Health Initiative Program started with Geoff Dardia, a SOF community member, in 2013. His story started like many others: he was “banged up” physically, mentally, and emotionally. Facing divorce, medical retirement, deep depression, and suicidal ideation, he refused to accept the standard of care and refused to believe a large portion of his symptoms were “all in [his] head.” About the SOF Health Program. Geoff sought care outside the conventional medical system. He started a transformational health experience that he later continued with the Cleveland Clinic Center for Functional Medicine, the flagship clinical care and research facility for the Institute of Functional Medicine. This experience not only showed Geoff what was driving his conditions and causing his symptoms, but it also empowered him to address these root causes and protect himself from exposures inherent to the Military Operational Environment. Ever since his healing experience in 2013 — in true force multiplier fashion — Geoff has been recruiting diverse professionals and advocates who share his Mission, Purpose & Focus. Their work through the Health Initiatives Program continues to empower others in the community and build the case for taking a Person-Oriented Medical Approach to care for our soldiers and special operators. ~ You can find Boone Cutler and Geoff Dardia on… FPL: https://www.amazon.com/FPL Boone Cutler’s Website: https://boonecutler.com/who-is-boone-cutler Geoff Dardia’s LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/geoffrey-dardia/ Task Force Dagger Foundation: https://www.taskforcedagger.org/

Dwight Heck: What It's Like Being A Single Father
Join Patti Katter and her guest, Dwight Heck, as they talk about what it is like being a single parent. Dwight is the owner of Give A Heck Financial; they empower and educate you with financial education to live life on purpose and not by accident. Aside from being a business owner, he is a full-time single parent of five children. It was not easy for Dwight because of the wrong impression most people have with single dad parents. How was he able to handle it all by himself? In this episode, you’ll learn: Dwight is a single father of four daughters and one son. How difficult it is for a man to get custody of his kids. There’s a stigma that a male being a single parent is not good enough for the children. It’s okay for parents to split up because sometimes there’s more damage when you force yourselves to stay together. The wrong judgment and impression people have on single male parents. People tend to judge situations that are completely out of their control. As a parent, it is your responsibility to be the bigger person. Dwight never thought of leaving his children even when it got extremely hard to handle. Look past the facade and give support to single male parents. Your kids are your number one priority and staying in a      broken relationship is not good for anybody. About Dwight Heck: Give a Heck Financial was founded by Dwight Heck, who started his career while living paycheck to paycheck as a single Dad of five children. Like many of us, Dwight didn’t understand how money worked or the basics of budgeting. The money came in and immediately disappeared, followed by sleepless nights and stress filled with quiet desperation. Instead of asking for help, Dwight kept his financial troubles to himself to avoid embarrassment and judgment. Tired of feeling like he was stumbling through life with no direction, Dwight made up his mind to live with intention and purpose. A turning point came in 2001 when Dwight discovered some major health issues. They led to a crossroads of giving up the emotionally, mentally, and physically draining IT consulting world. After working nine hard, relatively thankless years as an IT consultant, a friend reached out to Dwight in 2002 and asked if he was interested in checking out the finance and insurance industry. He encouraged Dwight to use his remarkable people skills, relatability, and ability to teach and train to help others in financial distress. Dwight was instantly sold on the idea of making the lives of people better while enhancing his own. Although Dwight knew nothing about budgeting, investing, or life insurance, he was determined to learn it for the sake of his own family and then help others to do the same. Done with nights of quiet desperation, Dwight rose to the top of the industry and has spent the last 18-years helping families and businesses thrive.

About Schara Chalmers: Schara is a pop recording artist from Vancouver, Canada. Born to an East Indian mother and a Portuguese/ Scottish father, Schara was raised solely by her mother, a writer in Film and TV. As a young girl, her home was filled with eclectic music from Bob Marley, Marilyn Manson, Eminem, Nirvana, Enya, Loreena Mckennitt, Katy Perry, Taylor Swift, and many other artists. From early childhood, Schara has only had one dream: to be an internationally renowned pop artist. She has passionately worked towards this dream since she was a child and continues to work towards it. This passion leads to Schara being involved in all different aspects of music. She excelled at the voice, guitar, and piano lessons and sang in a children’s choir. Recognizing her musical talent, her second-grade teacher asked her to perform at several elementary school competitions. Since childhood, Schara has been writing her songs and honed this skill as an adult by working with various producers around Canada, discovering who she is as an artist and writer. After finishing several EP’s in her childhood and teenage years, Schara decided to enhance her stage presence. For many years she performed in clubs and bars in the greater Vancouver area, performing her original pop songs. In 2015, during one of those performances, on a typical Vancouver rainy evening, she spotted a 3-time Grammy award winner Chin Injeti in the audience. She recognized him through her research on the music industry. She knew he had been producing and writing with Eminem, Pink, Drake, Joey Badass, Dr. Dre, and others. She sang her heart out during her set and then ran up to Chin, telling him, “I’ve been dying to work with you!!” He was impressed with her voice and stage presence. A week later, they began working together, and today, Chin is both her mentor and collaborator. Her latest recording, “It’s Like Torture,” was done with Chin Injeti at his Vancouver studio. She is currently building her fan base and her social media presence. Her music and personality resonate well with audiences of all ages because of her raw honesty. While pursuing her dream, Schara became a janitor to pay for her album as well as working three other jobs at the same time to save up enough money to pursue her music career properly. She channels her adversities and struggles into her songs.  A few years ago, she took to Facebook and Instagram and raised seven thousand dollars from a fan base she had never met. They supported her with only having heard a 30 second sound clip of her music, blogs, and posts. All of the money went to studio time She has performed throughout the continental U.S., including Vancouver, Canada, in Memphis, and Los Angeles at a variety of venues including the Hard Rock, Tin Roof, and a host of others. She has been featured in interviews and performed on FOX, ABC, and CBS, Schara is scheduled to launch her highly anticipated single "Real Love" in May 2020. Her debut EP is expected to be released before the end of 2020. Tour dates will be announced soon.

SABO's engaging personality stems from a childhood highlighted by learning. He believes the absence of his father made him suffer through the realization that life can’t get much worse. I’ve already been through the worst, he said. I never really had the sense of family in my life, which has made me stronger. SABO also conducted two tours in Iraq as a combat Tanker while serving in the US Army. Through all the struggles and hardships, he manages to keep making music and inspiring others as well. His determination to excel at his craft grew from the support of his family. His close friends RedNose and Hitman are just a few who noticed his skills and kept pushing him towards pursuing a musical career during his military years. Music has always been a part of SABO's life. Through his early years in poetry, SABO was able to unleash a skill for writing, which correlates to his ability to compile masterful lyrics. SABO’s ultimate goal is to reach and touch everyone especially soldiers who were in combat. SABO now transfers his energy to other special projects that benefits the veteran community through raising awareness on veteran suicide prevention, homeless veteran, and plants over pills campaigns. With community partnerships he has been able to plan, facilitate, coordinate, and execute events to benefit the Warfighter Community.

Brian Paul: National Guardsmen, Firefighter, EMT With Post Traumatic Stress Battled Alcoholism and Now Helps Others Fight Addiction & Find Purpose
Brian Paul served in the Oklahoma National Guard 45th Infantry; when the Murrah Building was bombed in an act of domestic terrorism in 1995, he was deployed to the site and worked among other responders in the devastation, receiving the State Activation Medal and Humanitarian Medal. Desiring to continue serving the public, Brian became a career fire fighter and EMT. He had a great life with a beautiful wife, son, and home. The stress of shift work, poor sleep, and encountering death and trauma regularly at his busy station accumulated. This man once seen as a hero began to drink heavily. Brian's clarity of thought diminished, and he had difficulty thinking clearly on his calls--a crucial asset for emergency workers. Failing health due to alcoholism brought Brian close to death: his liver was damaged and his bone marrow was even shutting down. At the lowest point of his life--homeless and barely alive--Brian finally accepted lifesaving help through a 90-day rehabilitation facility, where he chose life. He was successful in this recovery effort because of his faith in a Higher Power, love for his son and mother, and his adherence to a proper treatment program. He founded Veterans 4 Life USA to help reach out to struggling men and women who are serving or have served in military or first responder professions that expose them to intense trauma and long-term stress. Recently Brian fulfilled his dream of playing semi-pro football, demonstrating the full recovery from his previous state: he is in shape, full of energy, and impassioned to help as many brothers and sisters fighting their own battles as possible.

AJ Roberts: 15 Year British Forces Veteran Uses His Experiences To Help War-Torn Sierra Leone, Helping Hundreds of Blood Diamond Amputees
AJ Roberts is a 15 year British forces veteran who’s toured Iraq and Afghanistan. He is a distinguished leader having lead his men through the darkest of times. He also lived in Australia for nearly 3yrs. He worked his butt off and bought his own house within 3 yrs.   Unfortunately during this time his best friend killed himself, as did 3 other friends. All serving soldiers. He uses all his bad experiences as strengths in coaching others. In January 2020 AJ traveled to war-torn Sierra Leone to help hundreds of blood diamond amputees, all who were brutally butchered by terrorism and greed.   While there are many victims of the war, those whose limbs were brutally cut off by war rebels are of particular interest to me and sadly many of them were just infants and toddlers at the time. There are thousands of children born to war amputees; some of them who are now orphans are unable to go to school or get quality education because their parents are no more or simply can’t afford to educate them.    Follow AJ!   Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/pg/ajrobertscoaching   Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/mrajroberts
