The Art and Science of Success with Chad Burmeister

“I believe in living emotionally, spiritually, and mentally aligned.” — Dianne A. Allen

Success requires honoring your way, not trying to be someone you’re not, and identifying what lights up your whole world the most. In this episode, we are joined by another successful entrepreneur, Chad Burmeister. 

Part One of ‘The Art and Science of Success with Chad Burmeister’

Since his early twenties, he has served as an inside sales leader and disruptor to usher in an outbound strategy for pipeline generation and growth at companies including Cisco-WebEx, RingCentral, ON24, ConnectAndSell, and RingCentral. Today, he's teaching Founders, CEOs, and CROs how to leverage artificial intelligence to dominate their markets. 

His passion is to help regular people become the greatest sales professionals in the world through his years of best practices from advising high-growth companies to deploy a highly-effective pipeline generation machine.

“I'm leveling up my mindset every day.” – Chad Burmeister

Chad is a spiritual person who makes sure that He runs his business God’s way, everywhere he has worked since graduating from college and even the way he managed teams in the past. Are you curious about what inspired him to go from being a salesperson or employee into a business owner? Because those are entirely different in so many ways. This is how he got started, and you’re about to get blown away by his story. 

One day he heard a speaker who happens to be the CEO of a pharmaceutical company and runs another private equity investment company. She throws the question, “How did you first make money in life?” That moment, he remembered an old memory of him as ten or twelve years old who was very competitive and always keen on winning kind of person. That’s how he thought of transitioning from sales to entrepreneurship. 

Part Two of ‘The Art and Science of Success with Chad Burmeister’

Chad shares helpful tips on how you can live a fulfilled life. First, loving God above anything else. Second, to love your neighbor as yourself. Third, take care of your physical and mental health. Many people think that they can jump into the success zone without taking care of themselves, being open, and being teachable. That’s where the art of expanding steps in because we’re meant to keep evolving instead of staying stuck in one place. This is how Chad became an effective business owner in the long run. 

“Personal development and self-care are essential to being successful.” – Dianne A. Allen 

He had the luxury of working for WebEx from 2005 to 2007. Even in the office, they were using WebEx to do a broadcast to the whole office. He finds that virtual communication, especially during these social distancing days, helps everyone connect. You can screen share, read notes on the side of your screen, and so many more things that you can do than being in person. 

Chad has helped hundreds of entrepreneurs generate thousands of meetings and millions in pipeline and bookings. He’s the best person to work with when learning the art and science of success!

Create Great Experience and Meaningful Value In Life with Dr. Diem Mooney

Create Great Experience and Meaningful Value In Life with Dr. Diem Mooney

November 17, 2020

Life gives us many opportunities to enhance our wisdom despite the limitations around us. In this week's episode, we are joined by Dr. Diem Mooney, not the typical psychologist. He's going to help us understand the whole idea of diversity and the value that people bring to the table.

Part One of ‘Create Great Experience and Meaningful Value with Dr. Diem Mooney’

Dr. Diem, born and raised in Alabama, I/O Psychologist with specializations in human-computer interaction, research & development, organizational service design, and talent management.

Dr. Diem served as a senior-level transformational leader for the past eight years, acting as Chief Operations Officer, Chief People Officer, and Chief Experience Officer. He's a serial entrepreneur who has started and led several successful businesses from $0 to $1M. His leadership focus has always been on talent development. He utilizes his expertise in the field to facilitate growth among employees.

He has experience working in e-commerce, government, healthcare, and technology, a hybrid OD and UX strategist that is comfortable employing sound methodologies to maximize user experience, system design, product management, employer branding, and workforce development.

“Plan a goal for yourself, plan accordingly, and don't strain yourself.” – Dr. Diem Mooney

 

He was diagnosed with autism at the age of five and was non-verbal for a very long time. It's like learning issues and social interactions. It made his upbringing very interesting, considering that he had many challenges with social intelligence, communication, and social interactions. Ultimately, he ended up skipping several grades and graduating high school early. 

Fast forward, he joined the military and ended up traveling all over the world. When he got to the point of realizing that he didn’t fit into the military world anymore, he decided to pursue his PhD. In today’s world, we can call him an individual with neurodiversity, which is an asset because it makes him brilliant at what he does. But what people don’t see behind the scenes is that his limitations hit him in his everyday life, where he constantly needs to adjust or figure out how to make things work without blowing up. 

Part Two of ‘Create Great Experience and Meaningful Value with Dr. Diem Mooney’

His company is expanding at all times with new ideas, processes, and concepts. The way he hires someone shows that you can’t judge someone based on their disabilities, experiences, skin color, economic status, religion, and upbringing. It’s not an accurate measure of anything. It doesn’t measure their character or performance. Never let anyone tell you that you’re not going to succeed because no one can predict it for you. 

“You can go well beyond anything that people expect of you.” – Dr. Diem Mooney

It doesn’t matter what they look like, what they believe in, what limitations they have. Diversity is more about perceiving someone for who they are. For example, take all the consideration, see how you can help them develop, know how that person benefits your values, what good values they bring to your life, or what they’re willing to learn. His intention is not to hold on tightly to everyone and stifle their growth because the world’s always expanding. 

Take a moment to pause and reflect. Evaluate where you are right now and where you want to be. Take a gap analysis to seek the necessary steps to be where you desire to be. You are free to outgrow the box that people put you in, but don’t let your limitations stop you from growing. Let’s evaluate situations or people holistically and think about what actually truly matters versus what doesn't. Let us not define someone’s skin color as a determinant of anything. Let us not perceive someone’s belief as a measure of their character or performance. 

Be your biggest motivator, and don't ever let someone else tell you, “This is where you're going to stop in life, this is what you're capable of, and this is what you're not capable of.” Continue to grow and develop yourself. Go out there, show what you got, and continue to develop yourself. Together, let’s make a phenomenal impact around us.

The Power of Visionary Leadership  with Steven Sashen

The Power of Visionary Leadership with Steven Sashen

The Power of Visionary Leadership with Steven Sashen

“We're trying to change the world. That sounds grandiose and hyperbolic, but we know that what we're doing is legit.” — Steven Sashen, CEO of Xero Shoes

As a visionary leader, you cannot expect others to sacrifice like you are willing to do. It’s not their vision; it’s yours. Part of being a visionary is the intensity that runs through our veins. You make things happen. In this episode, we are joined by Steven Sashen to share the power of visionary leadership. 

Part One of ‘The Power of Visionary Leadership with Steven Sashen’

Steven Sashen is the co-founder and CEO of Xero Shoes. His wife, Lena Phoenix, started the company after discovering the comfort, benefits, and FUN of natural movement, by getting out of thick, padded, motion-controlled shoes. 

 

Steven likes to ask, "Do your feet feel better at the end of the day than they did at the beginning?" If not, you're not wearing Xero Shoes.

Xero Shoes include a complete line of shoes, sandals, and boots that let feet function naturally -- bending, flexing, and safely FEELING the world. People in 97 countries wear Xero Shoes for everything from a stroll on the beach to running a 256k 7-day race across Madagascar.

Steven and Lena appeared on Shark Tank, Season 4. See what happened at https://xeroshoes.com/sharktank/

Prior to jumping into the footwear business, Steven was an internationally-known Internet marketing expert, Search Engine and Social Media marketing consultant, and software designer. He also co-hosted the Emmy award-winning, internationally syndicated TV show, Disk Doctors.

Steven is also a Masters All-American sprinter, one of the fastest 55+ years old in the United States.

 

Specialties: barefoot running, SEO/SEM, marketing, meditation, turning ideas into products.

 

“Let go of old energy that is no longer serving you.” – Dianne A. Allen

 

We all have moments when we realize how much of a creative visionary person we are. Fortunately, Steven came from a family of entrepreneurs and small business people. For whatever reason, it never occurred to him not to do what he thought was interesting. His mindset is, “If I do those things well and they generate enough money, I don't have to have some other job.” Which is why he never had an actual job or an interview. The way he thinks is — he always pictures the big future ahead of him. 

Part Two of ‘The Power of Visionary Leadership with Steven Sashen’

Running a business isn’t rocket science! He doesn’t like it when people make money by lying to other people, which is what most of the footwear industry is. He wants to change the world by being right and proving that what he’s doing is legit. In fact, according to the majority of some billion-dollar footwear brands, Xero shoes are real, which is like admitting that what they’ve been doing for fifty years is a big lie. Like most successful entrepreneurs out there, he hopes to live long enough to see the fruition of his works. 

“Being a visionary is in your DNA, and it's how you are.” – Dianne A. Allen

As someone who’s been in the business for many years, here’s an interesting thought: If you don't need to work for a living, what gets you out of bed? What makes you want to do something, especially when you know that some of the things that you're going to think of are going to add more stress and difficulty in your life? Sometimes, it takes some practice of living differently than you think to discover whether what you thought is enough, if you need more, or if you need less. When Steven and his wife retired, they gave away twenty percent of their earned money because they didn't need it. And it was amusing to find someone new every month who needed a couple of thousand bucks. He says, "Surprising that crap out of them was a blast!"

If you’re an aspiring entrepreneur, this episode will hopefully serve as a reminder that you can achieve anything because you have a big purpose.

How to Go From Grumpy to Grateful with Kim Angeli

How to Go From Grumpy to Grateful with Kim Angeli

November 3, 2020

How to Go From Grumpy to Grateful with Kim Angeli

“Gratitude is a habit. Being grateful is a habit.” — Kim Angeli

Gratitude mindset is something that doesn't happen overnight. You don't plant something today and harvest it tomorrow. You need to nurture them, water them, and let them grow. It's the same thing as a business owner. It's important to nurture your clients. In this episode, we are joined by Kim Angeli, a unique entrepreneur with a diverse background.

Part One of ‘How to Go From Grumpy to Grateful with Kim Angeli’

Kim Angeli is known globally as the creator of The Grateful Box and Nextdoor Business Expert. She is passionate about teaching business owners how to WOW clients, increase revenue, and inspire referrals. She began her career after graduating from East Carolina University with Campbell Soup Sales, transitioned to technology, helping Sprint bring the first digital mobile phone to the world and her final Corporate America job at Cisco Systems. 

 

After finding herself in the "dot com bust," she started her insurance agency from scratch 11 days after 9/11. After 15 years of owning, growing, and merging insurance agencies under her practice, she sold that practice and took the leap into inspiring grateful living around the world. 

Kim has been featured in Business News Daily, Reminder Media Stay Paid Podcast, and is a sought-after keynote speaker on her programs, including An Attitude of Gratitude in the Workplace, how to take a grumpy client to grateful, and giving business owners strategies to WOW clients. When she is not speaking and teaching, you will find her traveling with her husband, daughter, and black lab. She is also an avid boater, reader, and spa junkie. You will also find her hanging out with her Rotary Family around the world, serving others.

“Choose grateful over grumpy now, because you'll reap the reward years from now, making the choice today.” – Kim Angeli

Kim Angeli talks about her transformation from being stuck in a "grumpy mood" into a "servant leadership" gratitude. If you want to see results and be a better person, you have to decide and be open-minded. Start replacing your negative thoughts, fear, and anger. Gratitude is something that must be part of our habits, that even if we don't agree with someone, we're going to meet them with grace and say, "Your opinion of me is not my business." Her fearless leader, God himself, said, "You're going to do less, be more intentional, be more mindful, you're going to make more money, and have a better life."

Part Two of ‘How to Go From Grumpy to Grateful with Kim Angeli’

You can't hang out with fear, worry, and Gratitude at the same time; they're not friends. Don't let the negativities hang out with you even during disruptions. Drop the things that don't serve your purpose and pick up something that helps you see the beauty in this world. Make a choice today to live a life full of Gratitude instead of being grumpy all the time, and you will reap the reward years from now, that's guaranteed. You don't want to be full of regrets in the future and trying to pretend like you're catching up.

“Consistent gratitude is cumulative.” – Kim Angeli

Write down the things you are grateful for right now. Show gratitude to grumpy people, show gratitude to your old clients, and show appreciation to your new ones — this is where your revenue and referrals will come from. Remember, you can't suppress a negative thought; it's something that needs to be replaced. Come up with a phrase or something that makes you joyful, or find your happy place as they call it. We have to redirect our focus on what's going well, which will help bring you back to the gratitude state. Practice gratitude every day and make it your goal to create a ripple effect around you.

How to Deal with Change and Transition With Dr. Karina Klimtchuk

How to Deal with Change and Transition With Dr. Karina Klimtchuk

October 27, 2020

How to Deal with Change and Transition With Dr. Karina Klimtchuk

“As humans, we tend to cheat as a species. We tend to change when the pain of not changing becomes greater than the pain of changing.” — Dr. Karina Klimtchuk

Life transitions are a little daunting because they push us to step outside of our comfort zone and face the future with bravery. On the positive side, these transitions give us a chance to learn about our strengths and to explore what we want out of life. In this episode, we are joined by Dr. Karina Klimtchuk.

Part One of ‘How to Deal with Change and Transition’

Dr. Karina is loved and respected by colleagues and patients for consistently bringing passion and excellence to her work as an integrative physician. A well-rounded practitioner, she combines Psychology, Yoga Therapy, and Reiki with East Asian and Functional Medicine. She consistently achieves great results by addressing the mind/body connection and customizing treatments to the unique needs of each individual. 

She is a dedicated practitioner who enjoys helping children and adults address acute and chronic conditions, prevent illness, and restore balance, harmony, and wholeness in all facets of life. Her heart is in her work – Dr. Karina adheres to the highest standards of practice in delivering expertly tailored wellness programs.

Dr. Karina is currently in private practice in Los Angeles and on Faculty at Yo San University of Traditional Chinese Medicine. She has served as Faculty and clinical training staff at Emperor's College in Santa Monica, and as Acupuncturist at Venice Family Clinic in Santa Monica, Integrative Medicine Center at the Roy and Patricia Disney Family Cancer Center in Burbank, and Being Alive in West Hollywood – a non-profit organization that provides wellness services to people living with HIV/AIDS. She studied extensively in China and Japan and co-founded a study-abroad in Japan program for acupuncturists.

Before opening her private practice, Dr. Karina taught wellness classes at Dana Hall School in Wellesley, MA, and worked extensively with psychiatric patients at Lifeworks, Inc. She regularly studies at the Jungian Institute of Los Angeles, gives workshops on various topics in health and wellness, and leads retreats. Fully committed to her personal development, Dr. Karina engages in daily self-cultivation practices, regularly attends seminars and conferences, and continually expands her resource base and offerings to serve her clients.

“Love is the opposite of fear. It's the antidote to fear. Love is what allows us to thrive and to open up to all our experiences.” – Dr. Karina Klimtchuk

Dr. Karina explains what integrative medicine is about. It's a new terminology related to what had to happen inside of her neurological wiring — the restructuring and incredible shifts that had to take place to accommodate what were often polar opposites, completely different paradigms, Western and Eastern philosophy, as a deductive reasoning approach versus pulling stuff out of thin air, responding to intuition and bringing it all together. She realized that she has a lot of appreciation for the complexity of it, and it perfectly mirrors the complexity of a human being. 

The only way that we can truly evolve, live fully, and ultimately heal, especially if we're dealing with some disease process or trauma, is by addressing all of those components, seeing how they interface, and making those connections among those different realms of the physical, spiritual, the mental and emotional. If we're not connected to others that are like us, there's a failure to thrive on some level, depending on the amount of disconnection. Integrative medicine is saying yes to all these different areas and seeing the beautiful elegance of how they come together for our health and wellbeing.

Part Two of ‘How to Deal with Change and Transition’

Dr. Karina also answers the question about fear of change. Most of us change when we're forced because we don't want to experience the discomfort and vulnerability of shedding skin. We can be at the driver's wheel of our ever-unfolding lives because change is inevitable and guaranteed. We all have blind spots, and we're supposed to ask ourselves, "How can I possibly see everything all at once?" The more we develop our consciousness and intentional engagement of life, the more we can anticipate those changes coming intuitively and allow this greater unfolding to take place.

“Curiosity is an incredible resource and tool.” – Dr. Karina Klimtchuk

Everybody has a different journey transition. Sometimes, there might be a little bit of pain associated with going through a transformative process. Many folks are afraid of transition, of not knowing what's on the other end or not knowing all the steps, but that's part of the process — you're not supposed to, and you don't have to respond with shame. Make room for self-compassion so you can lead others on your journey of discovery.

Start having a conversation with your inner wise man or wise woman and explore what that looks like. That's going to be different for everybody. For some people, it's an actual conversation like those voices. It may be a very subtle sensation in the body; it may be in the form of circumstances. or events in their lives that begin to guide them for other people. That inspiration and insight come through dreams. Start tuning into the infinite possibilities of how the universe and your inner world want to communicate with you.

How to Live Your Vision with Creative Execution with Michele Hiebert

How to Live Your Vision with Creative Execution with Michele Hiebert

How to Live Your Vision with Creative Execution with Michele Hiebert

“Allow your body to function in a way that serves you.” — Dianne A. Allen 

The secret to living a fulfilling life is to always have fun in the process whatever it is that you’re going through or wanting to achieve. Get ready to be inspired to level up your tenacity when it comes to executing your vision. 

In this week’s episode, we are joined by a long-time friend, an incredible and gifted visionary, Michele Hiebert. 

Part One of ‘How to Live Your Vision with Creative Execution with Michele Hiebert’

I’ve known Michele since we were young because we both have raced sailboats since we were young. It was our sport of choice. Since then, I have admired her career, her tenacity, the way she executes what's important to her throughout many years. She’s always been passionate about fitness which made her interested in finding ways to make it as a source of her living.  

She is the CEO of Emerge, Orange County’s premier choice for mobile personal training. They love to challenge the idea that you have to go to a fitness facility to get a quality workout, in the middle of your busy life schedule.

The Emerge model is 100% mobile. Whether at your home, office, or a local park, our trainers come to you in a mobile gym loaded with every piece of equipment necessary to ensure you get the workout you are looking for.

“If you want something, go for it. Never give up.” – Michele Hiebert

As an ACE Certified Personal Trainer, Michele dedicates herself to her personal training work and prides herself on how personalized her programs are. She listens to her client’s needs, goals and obstacles to getting fit and develops a plan tailored to their fitness goals. 

Michele has helped individuals meet their health and fitness goals for over 20 years. Racing Sailboats competitively for most of her life, she has always had a true passion for Health and Fitness. Through her work, Michele has gained a deep understanding of the need for individualized fitness plans.

Part Two of ‘How to Live Your Vision with Creative Execution with Michele Hiebert’

Remaining open and creative are two significant things that contributed to her success. She constantly questioned where she’s heading and made a way to pursue her dreams, instead of comparing herself with others. Her career has changed several times because she kept on asking questions like, “Is this really where I’m supposed to be? Is there more?” If you want to use your creativity to execute something, you must learn how to think outside of the box.  

“Even if you have limitations, you can still go out and do a lot of things.” – Michele Hiebert

Michele had three spinal surgeries over the last ten years but physical fitness saved her life. Now, she trains people for whatever body type they’re aiming for. If you’re struggling to reach your goals, remember that a winning attitude goes a long way. Empower yourself with words like, “You are enough.” It may sound more like on a spiritual or emotional level, but it ties to everything that you do. The way you love and believe in yourself does reflect in your actions. Go for whatever fills up your tank.

You have the Power to Create Your Vision with Craig Bartock

You have the Power to Create Your Vision with Craig Bartock

You have the Power to Create Your Vision with Craig Bartock

“If music spoke to you in any way in your life, it can be the best form of therapy.” — Craig Bartock

It's so mind-blowing how music serves as a language of our emotion that it can represent various feelings, and it can barge into the soul with no boundaries or limitations. In this week's episode, we are joined by Craig Bartock as we talk about your power to create your vision.

Part One of ‘You have the Power to Create Your Vision with Craig Bartock’

Craig Bartock is a lead guitarist, producer, and songwriter with the legendary rock band and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees Heart. Extensive music production, scoring, composing, and teaching experience with 35+ years in the music industry in all aspects, including both analog and digital recording techniques, worked and have written charted singles with some of the biggest names in popular music, including Heart, Blondie, Aly and AJ, Brie Larson, Seal, Simply Red, Toni Braxton, Madonna, Tina Arena.

 

A long list of TV and Movie music composition and scoring including shows such as Dexter, The Carrie Diaries, Brothers and Sisters, Alien Encounters, MTV's The Alectrix, Burn Notice, Rachel Zoe Project, MTV Cribs, Sunset Daze, LA Ink, Access Hollywood, Dr. 90210, Valentine, and Reaper. Movies Elizabethtown and PS I Love You. Animation scores for Warner Bros, The Animaniacs, Pinky and the Brain, Looney tunes, Nickelodeon, and Hanna-Barbera.

TV appearances include Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Conan O'Brien, Jimmy Fallon, Ellen, Dancing with The Stars, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, PBS Soundstage, The L Word. VH1 Rock Honors, Fanatic Live from Caesars Colosseum, The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, A&E Private Sessions .... and has performed live with countless artists including Sammy Hagar, Cheap Trick, Emmylou Harris, Carrie Underwood, Alison Krauss, Neil Young, Graham Nash, Shawn Colvin, Richard Marx and Wynonna Judd to name a few.

“The beauty of music is the space between the notes.” – Dianne A. Allen 

Craig received a guitar as his first birthday present when he was eight years old and grew up loving music because something about it got him emotionally attached. He started his first band when he was twelve years old as he joined a talent show in sixth grade. When he was in seventh and eighth grade, he had a band that was professionally handled by a manager and started making money out of that. 

He says that "It's amazing how media and a song can make you feel a certain way or how you can play music for different people, but they still get to relate with the song." Anybody can agree that there's no greater gift or compliment for a songwriter or an artist to have somebody say that to you. Because when you put a song out there that describes how you feel, it's incredible how someone can take that song, interpret it, and fit it into their world. 

By the time he was in his mid to late teen years, he had lived in San Diego and in one of the most popular bands to play dances. Then, he got his first publishing deal when he was nineteen and first record deal when he was twenty years old. It was a learning curve where he enjoyed working with other people, which led him to an extended production and songwriting career.

Part Two of ‘You have the Power to Create Your Vision with Craig Bartock’

According to Craig, part of being in the music industry is learning how to survive on the road, how to take care of yourself, how to get enough sleep, how to find good food when you're in certain parts of the country so that you stay healthy, and how to stay focused. Even the landing and takeoff parts are hard, especially when you're used to your normal routines back home. Before becoming well-known, he was already mentally stable and had always felt good about himself. He never tried to smoke, drink, or even take drugs. 

He never experienced the "peer pressure" that most teenagers nowadays are struggling with. Here's something interesting about Craig too: he treats his home as a sanctuary in a unique way. You would never know that he had spent his entire life in the music business because he doesn't have any of his gold records hung up on the wall or pictures of him with famous people. His home is a place where he forgets about all of that. His perspective is that he doesn't need to display things to be reminded of his passion.

“The hardest part is the takeoff and the landing.” – Craig Bartock

Craig has a big heart when it comes to giving back to people. He's willing to go out of his way, like talking to the security person who has to sit for twelve hours in front of their dressing room door and ask if he needs anything. Now that we're still stuck in the pandemic, his goal is to guide people in the right direction to experience full musicality and bring their vision forward. No matter how big or small our contributions are, now is the time for us to empower each other.

Generally, the sky's the limit for music because not only you get the chance to help others grow their passion, but you get to convey your message through the lyrics when you can't say those words face to face. Therefore, if you're musically inclined, get it out there and express yourself. I assure you, it's a promising therapy for your soul — coming from someone who spent his entire life in the music business.

How To Execute Your Vision with Tom Dreesen

How To Execute Your Vision with Tom Dreesen

"Laughter is not only psychologically a deterrent; it's physiologically therapeutic. Comedians are physicians of the soul.”  - Tom Dreesen (16:43-16:45)

Laughter is the best medicine, and it always will be. To send you some cure to whatever illness you're experiencing right now, Someone Gets Me has an amazing guest with us who can heal us by making us laugh. But wait there's more! Our guest for today's episode also managed to have a vision and go after it with fervor and attain it and is still moving forward with amazing things. 

Tom Dreesen is with us today. He's coming to us from California and Tom has a longstanding career that started with that inner urge of "I'm going to do something with my life, and I'm going to follow that inner vision." And guess what? He did it. Tom is a known actor and comedian. He opened for Frank Sinatra for many years and has been on over 500 T.V. shows and movies.

Tom has an amazing story that will inspire you beyond measure. So get your coffee or your tea. Hang out with us for a little while and let yourself listen to his words in a way that will touch your heart and provide meaning for you. 

Part One of "How To Execute Your Vision with Tom Dreesen."

Tom Dreesen has such a fascinating life that roots from the inner part of him that took a stand to follow his vision. I believe that if we talk about how he did that, all these great results he achieved, and all the fun experiences, then we'll learn something valuable from him.

Tom related that he grew up in a suburb on the south side of Chicago called Harvey, Illinois. It was steel mills and factories where they made everything from clutch plates to crankshafts. He had eight brothers and sisters, and they lived in a shack with no bathtub, no shower, no hot water. The shack was rat-infested, roach-infested and if a window broke, you stuck a rag in it. 

He further added that as a little boy, both his parents were alcoholics. He would take his shoeshine box every night and go shining shoes in all the bars in the neighborhood. At age 16, he helped feed his brothers and sisters. 

As poor as they were during those times, Tom was embarrassed by the way he dressed whenever he attended school. He quit high school when he was a sophomore and worked in the streets. He ran with a tough crowd and at age 17 went into the Navy. 

When Tom was in the Navy, he began to go out to sea and read. "I wanted to read books that would improve my mind. When you're a young boy like that, you're reading sex novels and stuff like that. But I kept thinking I need to improve my mind. So I started reading Norman Vincent Peale, The Power of Positive Thinking." shared Tom.

Tom also mentioned that "The Magic of Believing" by Claude Bristol helped him more than anything. From that moment on, Tom believed that whatever the mind can see and believe, it will achieve. And that fascinated me and how you could accomplish that. 

"That's what this vehicle we have, this body we have, it needs a flight plan. "- Tom Dreesen (05:53-05:57)

In giving an account of how he executed his vision, Tom let the cat out of the bag and shared to us his beliefs. He said, "I now get motivation talks on four subjects: perception visualization, self talk and develop a sense of humor. But I tell everybody that most people wander in life because they don't know what they want in life. So I said this, "The pilot who flies the 747 from L.A. to Boston, does he drive a hundred miles an hour to the airport, drive out on a tarmac, run to board the aircraft, take off down the runway and say, "Now, where am I going?" NO! He files a flight plan. That's what this vehicle we have, this body we have, it needs a flight plan."

Anchored to that belief and enthusiasm, while Tom was in the Junior Chamber of Commerce, he wrote a drug education program about drug abuse with humor. He was making the kids laugh, playing music and everything, and then showing them the illicit drug use in our community. 

At that time, they were teaching drug education at a college level or high school level, let alone at an elementary school level. He met a young black guy who graduated from Norfolk State College, and his name was Tim Reid. Together they worked on a project, went from one classroom to another, and the program became very popular. 

Then one day, a little girl walked out of the classroom and said, "You guys are funny, you ought to become a comedy team." That moment rang some bell on Tom's mind, and he said, "I never, ever thought about being in show business. That was the furthest thing from my mind." The thought of a black-white comedy team is intriguing, and there had never been one in America. 

They started writing what they thought was material and went into a club. That first night on stage on Friday night, something Tom had written got a laugh, and it was almost like an epiphany, like the dark clouds opening up like a bee movie. 

"At that very moment, my whole being. Oh, yes, this is what I want to do. I want to make a living as a standup comedian. The thought that I can make a living making people laugh overwhelmed me." Tim proudly retold how he felt during that moment of celebration, self-satisfaction, and victory.

Part Two of "How To Execute Your Vision with Tom Dreesen."

Tom's winning moment doesn't end there. He also shared that one day when he was eight years old, he was selling newspapers and all horns were blowing, all the elders in the community were coming out in the streets. It's Lou Boudreau day; he's a famous baseball player from Harvey, Illinois. He played shortstop for the Cleveland Indians, and they won the World Series. He's a hometown hero. That day, Tom thought, "Wow, there are parades, and people were cheering him on. Wow, somebody from Harvey, Illinois, is famous. One day maybe they'll also have a parade for me." On that Lou Boudreau day, Tom was fantasizing about driving down a street and waving at everybody in a car. 

Then, August 22nd, 1992, Tom went back to Harvey, Illinois, and on that corner, that corner where he sold newspapers, they named that street, "Dreesen Street."—after him. A big parade was made for him, and the guy who introduced me to the crowd was Lou Boudreau.

"You can live every day until you die. Or you can die every day until you die. It's your call."-Tom Dreesen (41:31-41:37)

Tom also had an inspiring answer when I asked him if there was any food he had eaten that was so memorable that he still thinks about it, whether it was good, bad or indifferent. 

So he told us another story and said, "When I was a little boy, the shack we lived in, we rarely had meals. And I grew up with very poor nutrition. I took my shoeshine box downtown Chicago and went by the Chicago theatre. There was a steak place called the Blackhawk Restaurant, and I had never eaten steak in my life. The smells of that steak, I couldn't believe how delicious that smell was. But I couldn't afford to pay for that. And my family's greatest delicacy would have been chicken. 

Years later, when I was in the Navy, a buddy of mine, got to ask me what kind of steak you like? And I said, "I don't know. I'd never eaten steak." He didn't believe that.

Steaks are done well in Chicago, and there's a place called Gibson Steakhouse that when I go to Chicago, I'd go there and have my steak."

"Prayers are answered. Sometimes we can't handle it all alone. You need to have faith, and faith can move mountains. It can move mountains, and I'm a living example of that." Tom added.

In closing, Tom reminded us that Every day is a celebration. Every day is a gift. Every morning when you wake up, say yes, to whatever amazing experience or opportunity shows up. It's always more magical and amazing than you imagined. 

Tom Dreesen Full Bio:

Tom Dreesen left his hometown of Harvey, Illinois over 40 years ago to seek fame and fortune in Hollywood.

The Importance of Advocacy with Emily Levy

The Importance of Advocacy with Emily Levy

The Importance of Advocacy with Emily Levy

"It was possible for things to be fair or that they were supposed to be fair."- Emily Levy (03:44-03:48)

Advocacy ensures people in the society can protect their privileges and have their thoughts and desires considered. In this week's episode of Someone Gets Me, Dianne A. Allen invites Emily Levy to talk about advocacy. Emily has all kinds of amazing things she's doing around elections. So she will talk about that in the show. 

Part One of "The Importance of Advocacy with Emily Levy."

Emily grew up in the ’60s in San Francisco and was taken to protest against the Vietnam War by her parents and walking precincts for candidates her parents believed in. So from a very early age, she was involved in seeing how people work for what they want in their communities. 

"I guess I have always risen to challenges in various ways. And I trace my activism and advocacy work back to toddlerhood when my biggest complaint was it's not fair. I had this idea that things could be fair or that they were supposed to be fair. But it has not been okay with me when things aren't fair for as long as I can remember. So my whole life, I have done what I can to make things fairer," says Emily on asking how her life ended on becoming an advocate. 

Furthermore, Emily also added that she had some struggles in academics when she was a child. She had to make her own challenges to live up to that sense of justice and having things be just on a spiritual level. She was like the petition kid and set everything up for justice.

"I remember we would have like 20 spelling words a week, and we were supposed to put them and set them into sentences. Some teachers insisted on one word per sentence, and some teachers let us use more than one word. So I would challenge myself to get all 20 words into one sentence because I was bored out of my mind. Things that didn't make sense. To have us do work that we were supposed to do, even if we'd already learned what they were supposed to be teaching us. So in an elementary school, those are the kinds of challenges that I remember most," Emily shared. 

"The people who I know like me, in high school, are much happier with their lives now than the cool kids who were using drugs or more in the 'in-crowd'." -Emily Levy (14:04-14:27)

The school wasn't stimulating enough for Emily. It wasn't matching her skill set. Many geeky, nerdy, smart kids get over reinforced for their intelligence. Sometimes the adults miss the sensitive, emotional part, the need to be connected, and the need to be cared about. 

It's just so feeding into the head, and so that synchrony of the development gets exaggerated. It's part of that whole idea that we get put into these boxes. This is the smart kid, this is the pretty kid, this is the athletic kid, and etc. There's rarely a holistic appreciation of human beings as complex and valuable for everything about us.

The world is trying to push people into one box, and we're not allowed to get out of it. When we push those boxes, as gifted, talented people, we're going to where we push the limits and say, "No, hold on for a second. This is who I am." Let's pay attention to everybody else who is multidimensional because there's so much more going on—that's the game-changer. 

Part Two of "The Importance of Advocacy with Emily Levy."

The whole idea of justice is a form of perfectionism that comes to gifted people. It's a natural part of our DNA to care about justice and things being right. It's normal, and so you were aware of it and could feel it and see it and experience it from time to time. 

Emily does advocate professionally and has been doing it for a while. Not everybody does it, and some people don't put it in their vocation in the same interesting way. 

Sharing about that piece of the journey, Emily says, "At some point in my 20s, I realized I had grown up with the sense that my mind was destined for greatness. But I had no idea what that meant, what did what was expected of me, who it was that was expecting it, and what I was supposed to do about it. But anything I fought about doing felt like it wasn't good enough. At the same time, I got a chronic illness and became disabled. I was limited in my ability to interact with the world for about 30 years from that illness.”

Furthermore, she also shared her struggles in discovering her purpose. “In the time of my life, when I was expected to figure out what my career is going to be, I wasn't able to have one. I was pretty much homebound, and I didn't have many hours a day where I could do much other than take care of myself. It also gave me a lot of time to think about what I wanted to do. 

"There's no blanket answer for what everybody needs other than to be listened to and for someone to get them." -Dianne A. Allen (15:00-15:07)

“My former partner and I adopted four kids, and the first three we adopted were already older. The first one was five, and then a year and a half later, we adopted siblings who are ten and eleven. A few years later, we adopted a baby. She's a lot younger than her three siblings, and there is a way in which I thought of raising my kids as my work in the world, which will be familiar to the parents who are listening,” Emily related.

Specifically, she thought that raising those kids who all had a rough start and try to instill some values in them about justice is her social change work. 

But when her youngest came along, Emily realized that her oldest kids didn't see her as an advocate or an activist. She wasn't doing anything else, except attending an occasional protest if she was able. “I wanted my youngest to see me as an active person working to change the world. And I mean, I wanted them all to see it.” Emily stressed out.

Getting more active in going forward, Emily came to understand a lot more about the problems with the United States' election system and how our votes are counted—it is virtually counted by computers. Those computers can be programmed to produce any result, regardless of how people vote.

“I landed on positions being paid to get rid of those electronic voting systems and running investigations of elections and training people to observe the processes in an election office after an election and things like that.

I also knew that with the gravity of the United States' situation and the world right now, this 2020 election was coming around, I need to focus.

I kept wanting to make a living, doing the stuff that mattered to me. I've been assembling in my life about how to make a living, doing work, making the world fairer.” emphasized Emily.

In wrapping up the interview, I asked Emily if she was to have a billboard, what would she put in there. With words very well said, she replied, 

“Life is better when things are fair for everyone.”

How the Tree of Life Helps Leaders Execute Their Vision with Sharon Rosen

How the Tree of Life Helps Leaders Execute Their Vision with Sharon Rosen

September 22, 2020

Leaders are faced with everyday challenges and obstacles. It's vital that you learn how to be proactive versus reactive. That's what you were designed to handle as a leader in the first place. The fact you've embraced the leadership role is a transformation, and it's full of possibilities. Many of them are stuff you choose, while some are the pure luck of the draw. Your job as a leader is to execute your vision and not to get off track. Either you have to see it happening and be ready, or you have to be prepared to tackle it on the run.

In this week's episode of Someone Gets Me, Dianne A. Allen interviews Sharon Rosen to help leaders execute their visions. Watch the full show of "How the Tree of Life Helps Leaders Execute Their Vision with Sharon Rosen." and learn how to be a vision-filled and effective leader.  

Part One of "How the Tree of Life Helps Leaders Execute Their Vision with Sharon Rosen."

If you're a leader, you've got to start growing and expand yourself into something you know nothing about and be curious. Living in your head alone is like being a stick with a brain that doesn't work. It destroys your body and stops your goodness from showing up in the world. Your goodness is important and vital. So please be a little curious about something new. Go to a place where you can learn, a place such as “The Tree of Life.” Imagine that The Tree of Life lives within you.

 

The Tree of Life is contained within universes, which is part of the most inclusive, ethereal and untouchable reality. You get it in a way that you could never have gotten from books. Healings with people engaging with the Tree of Life is such a great gift. It also can help you get unstuck from past issues. 

 

This is important because being a leader means transformation. You are transforming yourself so you can change other people's lives as well. But transformation isn't always fun and pretty. You can't run a marathon unless you create more endurance to sustain yourself.  

 

It's not always just light and comfortable and pretty on the spiritual growth journeys. Spiritual growth journeys are very messy. Although people like to say that it's all beautiful and it's great, that's true. But, at the very same time, it can be very messy and very intense and very challenging and requires multiple peer groups of support, other human connection and direction.  

 

"If leaders are more deeply supported internally and externally, then we're able to lead more effectively with less angst and anger and attack in the world. We can lead from a more authentic spot."- Dianne A. Allen (26:10-26:23)

 

The most significant leaders, the greatest visionaries, have other people in their corner who are leaders and visionaries because we got to support each other.

How the Tree of Life Helps Leaders Execute Their Vision with Sharon Rosen

"If you're a leader, you've got to start growing and expand yourself into something you know nothing about."— Dianne A. Allen (7:58-8:04)

We have to learn how to hold opposites and hold paradoxes. That's where the healing and the wholeness come in, not from thinking that you can push away all the "negative stuff" or the stuff you don't like and go to the light. 

Life is messy, but it's beautiful, astounding, and unique. Learn to hold things in the right balance, which isn't always 50/50, depending on what's going on.

Sharon says it perfectly, “You're not broken, and I'm not here to fix you. I am here as a "healer"; I'm a catalyst for other people's always available wholeness. So you already have everything you need inside of you.”

But life by the very virtue of being born into human form, some things get a little out of kilter. And we learn to adapt. Like if somebody has a physical handicap. They deal with it, get a prosthetic, and keep moving on.

So rectifying is a way of holding, reflecting, embodying, and resonating out the already healed and whole being that lives within you.

Always come back into yourself, to not be expecting. It's natural to want things, but the less you want and hope, you don't need as much from people out there to understand you the way you want —therefore, people get you more. 

Part Two of "How the Tree of Life Helps Leaders Execute Their Vision with Sharon Rosen."

A leader is not necessarily a position. A leader can be a four-year-old that leads somebody out of danger. Sometimes leaders are mischievous ones who get the class to do wild stuff to the teachers, but they're still leaders, and we're all leaders somehow.

If leaders live from the essence of The Tree of Life, their leadership transmutes into something even more impressive than they thought. 

So when we're working with The Tree of Life, you'll deal with aspects that correlate to the hips and the legs. It has something to do with how you move in the world. If someone is in a leadership role, they're used to going, doing, and not stepping back into their splendor, wisdom, and goodness.

Taking time for themselves is a sort of self-care. When you've got a good balance in these two areas, because you're always pushing, pushing, and pushing, that pushing has to be balanced with more internal aspects of self-care. Maybe a meditative practice or writing practice or something that's just for you, that feeds you and sustains you nourishes you on a deep level. 

 

Sometimes you have to stand still. Go more internally, and then you refuel, and then you can move forward from a more strategic and balanced and sustainable place. 

"The Tree of Life helps you keep the flow going so that you can be grounded and centered. And if you start moving too far, too fast, you check back in. It helps us come back to who we are so that we can move forward more effectively" -Dianne A. Allen (30:11-30:32)

Many people struggle with burnout because they're always pushing, and even leaders who aren't pushing can struggle from burnout because if you don't take care of yourself along the way, you spend all your inner resources.

So The Tree of Life helps you keep the flow going. It's okay to stop for a minute, take a few deep breaths. 

Remember that even if it feels like an emergency or urgent, it doesn't mean it is. Using The Tree of Life’s balance and holding both things permits us not to be slaves to that urgency.

It's huge in our society. It's enormous in people who have big visions. "I gotta do it." "I gotta get it out there.

The thing with leaders is that they have people who lean into them and count on them. Maybe they don't feel that they have enough of that kind of support in their own life. It's like you're trying to do a marathon on one leg. 

Rest into the fact that you're part of something larger than just you and let yourself rest. Feel yourself, stop and close your eyes for a minute when you have time during the day and go, "Oh, it's not just all about me. I'm not the only driver here." 

Rest back into the fact that you are part of a much larger energy field. Additionally, leaders tend to overthink things and tend to wrap it on their heads and consequently undo the very blessing they could be receiving.

Leaders are visionaries in any way and are creatives. They should see that life is multidimensional and that they have multifaceted abilities. They can go at anything from lots of angles. 

Everybody, keep your face to the sun, so the shadows fall behind you because you're a rock star, and you're here on purpose.

So, let's use our curiosity and our multidimensional selves to emerge even more magical and brilliant.
