Josh Felber: Emmy Award Winner, Inc. 5000™ Winner, Best Selling Author, Contributor to Forbes Magazine
Join Patti Katter and her guest Josh Felber to discuss how he has integrated the most important facets of his life into his many different successes. In his early years, Josh experienced rejection. But as someone who has established a strong mindset, he shares how he navigated to other opportunities from rejection and failure. In this episode, he also speaks about his podcasts that uncover the most prominent public figures' mindsets and habits and how copying from those can help people put into reality their own versions of success.

About Josh Felber: Like many entrepreneurs out there, he started young. He created his first real business at the age of 14 and has owned 15 more in the 30+ years since. Before the age of 25, he had already achieved one of his lifelong goals of becoming a millionaire. As he went from a young bachelor to a husband and father of three, Josh's most valuable resource, TIME, began to disappear. HE REALIZED THAT NO MATTER HOW QUICKLY HE WORKED, HE COULDN'T GET EVERYTHING DONE. His business neglected, his relationships declining, his faith and fitness no longer a priority… Josh knew he needed a better way. He felt scattered, rushed, and as though he was unable to make significant progress in any area of life. THAT'S WHEN HE REALIZED SOMETHING… He had always divided and conquered his daily outcomes. Chunking each task into a different block of time and handling it individually. Looking at his list of focused outcomes, Josh did the math…He realized that accomplishing all of them every day was impossible! After working on the challenge on his own for months, Josh decided to reach out to his mentors and friends. Working through the issue (with a little external perspective), he finally discovered what he needed to do…INTEGRATE! HE BEGAN FINDING WAYS TO INTEGRATE HIS FAITH, HIS FAMILY, HIS FITNESS, AND HIS BUSINESS.

He works with those who have a business, but it's "not really working," and they can't seem to discover the real reasons why.

Sunil Godse: Understanding Your Intuition & Listening To Your Gut
Join Patti Katter and her guest, Sunil Godse, as they talk about understanding your intuition and listening to your gut. Sunil is the owner and teacher at Intuitionology, he helps businesses increase their productivity by using intuitive resonance to build trusted professional relationships! He is also the author of the amazing books Fail Fast, Succeed Faster and GUT! In this episode, you’ll learn: · The importance of trusting your intuition and listening to your gut feelings. · Your intuition and all those experiences to learn from will be put into the subconscious area of your brain. · There are four types of intuition that all work at the same time. · You need to overcome the fear associated with what your intuition is telling you to do. · There are a lot of signals you need to consider before making important decisions. · Four intuitive hurdles that get people in trouble and interfere with your signals. · And much more! ~ About Sunil Godse: The statistics companies face are very stark with 80% of employees unhappy in the workplace, resulting in $550 billion a year in lost productivity resulting in much higher internal costs, and if not fixed, the results could be fatal. The reason? Companies seem to treat their employees as numbers where transactional relationships and a heavy focus on short term results engulf the corporate culture. It comes as no surprise to anyone when such a corporate culture has employees feeling disengaged and demotivated in the workplace, negatively affecting the overall productivity with downstream effects being higher turnover as valuable employees look elsewhere to find companies who actually care for them. If this is not fixed quickly, this starts to put a tremendous squeeze on profits, putting the company on a downward spiral, and it could end up becoming a part of the 99% that are no longer around by year five. The good news is that this can be prevented by ensuring that management learns how to implement intuitive resonance within the organization to establish trusted relationships with its employees, creating a tight-knit corporate culture that has employees intrinsically motivated to perform at their highest level. The cumulative effect translates to an immediate increase in productivity with longer-term effects being lower turnover costs and higher profits, a combination Sunil Godse is used to seeing as he grew several entrepreneurial ventures to over $20 million before helping many other companies accelerate the productivity of their employees, elevating their business success to a whole new level.

Coming from an entrepreneurial family, business is in his blood. He joined the family business in 2005 as a laborer, and over the years worked his way up through the ranks. First entering the office environment in 2006 as an admin assistant, within 12 months he was running the entire purchasing department for the business. He went on to manage the company manufacturing facility alongside his purchasing role and was officially made a director in 2012. After handing over the manufacturing facility, he moved on to managing the multiple contracts and sites operated by the business all over the world.​ In 2015, he hired his first business mentor and together with his fellow directors created explosive growth that saw their sales more than double from £2.2m to £4.5m in the short space of just 12 months, which saw Jamie leading a team of 60 and being promoted to Managing Director in December 2016. He was the driving force behind creating the systems needed to thrive as a business, and during his time with the company built many departments from scratch, including completely re-structuring the business in January 2017 to install the solid foundations that were needed to ease their growing pains, and ensure a financially healthy business. He didn’t always see eye-to-eye with his co-directors, and he knows first hand how challenging it can be to navigate family dynamics alongside all the other challenges that come with being in business.​ He chose to exit the business in December 2017 realizing he had taken it as far as he could and it was time for a change; this was one of the best decisions he has ever made, and in January 2018, the first iteration of Bulletproof Business was born. Jamie had started doing some freelance consultancy working with other business owners on their business strategy throughout 2017 and hasn’t looked back. Since then he’s worked with scores of businesses across the UK helping start-ups find their feet in getting established, working closely with early-stage businesses to accelerate growth, and delivering specialist consulting for established 6/7-figure companies across multiple sectors to create high performance, profitable operations with a focus on financial management, project management, and growth strategy. Jamie is results-focused, and his core values of integrity, honesty, and operational excellence are reflected in every aspect of his work.

Listen to his stories now and surely they will touch motivate you in life! In this episode, you’ll learn: · Dominic’s dad is an honorable man who he looks up to so much. · The story or incident of how he got infected with COVID-19. · He was rushed to a hospital because he couldn’t breathe properly. · A lot of people supported and helped him get through his sufferings. · Through this hardship, he was able to reflect on a lot of things in his life/ · Dominic really loves his family and they are the reason why he doesn’t want to give up! · And much more! ~ About Dominic Vasquez written by his sister: My brother Dominic, or Dom for those of us who know him well, is 28 years old. Before late march of 2020, Dom lived his life in an extremely athletic manner. He was at the gym every day, sometimes even multiple times a day. He prioritized his fitness because he wanted to stay healthy, and because his job as a law enforcement officer requires a high level of fitness. Staying fit and healthy could literally be the difference between life and death in his profession. This was an important aspect of his life. Another thing that Dom has always prioritized is family, he has always been better at this than me. He is quite literally the definition of a family man. When he wasn’t spending time with family, he was with good and loyal friends. Most of those friends being law enforcement buddies, but also a few really good childhood friends too. Dom was extremely social and loved to be around friends and family. He has always been very protective of us and would literally do anything for the people that he loves. I will also say that my brother has been through a lot over the last 3-4 years. He has seen the worst of people through his job. He has been shot at, been in a dangerous vehicle pursuit that ended in a crash, and has witnessed many things that no one should ever have to as a police officer. March of 2020 brought him and our family another traumatic incident to add to the list. Dom is older than me by about 5 years. However, I often assume the caretaker role with him (and everyone else in my life). This is exactly what happened when he contracted COVID-19 in late March of 2020. At this time, I was working in EMS for an ambulance company out in Salt Lake City. COVID was new to the U.S. and we didn’t know much about it. I was starting to get patients on my ambulance who were positive for the virus, but were stable. That week, my brother had told me he thought he had the virus because he felt the sickest he had ever felt before. He told me that he didn’t know how to explain what it felt like, the closest thing he could relate it to was “a really bad flu”.

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.

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: Boone Cutler’s Website: Geoff Dardia’s LinkedIn: Task Force Dagger Foundation:

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.

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 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.

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:   Instagram:
