Michael Dermer, entrepreneur, speaker, lawyer and author of “The Lonely Entrepreneur” joined me to discuss why he left a coveted job as a corporate lawyer to pursue the dream of being his own boss.  His concept — reward Americans for healthy behavior and in the process, saving the healthcare system a bundle.  Hear how he created IncentOne – an empire he tirelessly devoted over a decade too that crumbled in mere days during the 2008 financial debacle and how his varied entrepreneur skills, business acumen and much more got him back in the game.  My mother continues to inspire and teach me through her uncanny ability to adapt to life circumstances within and beyond her control.  Recently, she had to utilize her strength and courage once again, this time in the form of relocating to a new home late in life.  Change in life happens in many forms and my mothers ability to not only survive but flourish, made me take pause of the significance of this vital  characteristic that makes many wildly uncomfortable.

Tracey Jackson, tv and film writer and co-author of NY Times best seller, GRATITUDE AND TRUST: 6 Affirmations That Will Change Your Life joins me for an in-depth conversation about loss, denial and numerous invaluable life lessons.   Hear many riveting stories including Tracey’s first meeting with Oscar and Grammy winning song writer Paul Williams that took place in Robert Mitchum's bedroom. Really!  A veteran of traditional therapy — though never an alcohol or drug abuser like her friend Paul…Tracey has struggled with other negative behaviors to numb her pain such as men, cigarettes, and over-spending.  Tracey shares stories of debauchery that Paul lived and wrote about in their book like how Paul was rarely able to recollect his dozens of appearances on the Tonight Show since he was so high. Tracey blogs on traceyjacksononline.com, and she runs GratitudeandTrust.com with her dear friend Paul Williams.

“Mark Farrell presented at our school during The Week of Respect. The students were captivated by his motivating message on perseverance, diversity, and anti-bullying. Our students remained engaged throughout his presentation as he has perfected speaking to students at their developmental level. Mark was flexible to work with and was able to engage with students on a large array of topics. My students greatly benefited from hearing the message that with hard work, diligence, and never giving up on yourself, your dreams can become your reality. I would highly recommend Mark Farrell to any school looking for a highly motivating speaker”
