In this week’s episode of IMPACT, we had a conversation with Dr. Lauren Lee Stone. Dr. Lauren is a Board-Certified Nutrition Specialist (CNS), Holistic Health Practitioner, and Integrative Health Practitioner. Today, she is here to talk to us about how to treat autism and other chronic diseases.

 

Dr. Lauren discusses how her son’s autism diagnosis led her to switch her field of study from Italian and French literature to holistic and integrative health, how long it took to start seeing positive results when healing his autism, commonalities she sees in treating kids with chronic illnesses, and more. We also speak about how foods have lost nutritional value throughout the decades and how infections run in biofilms. It always comes down to starting with the gut. The food we eat is essential to curing our body’s illness. 

 

Dr. Lauren was let down by the doctors at the Yale Child Study Center, so she took matters into her own hands and managed to heal her child with holistic and homeopathic medicine. Now he is a flourishing, handsome young man, on his way to getting his doctorate. It just goes to show that nothing is impossible in the world of natural medicine and healing. 

 

Tune in, absorb, and take notes to take control of your child’s health!

“Where I live in Connecticut, it’s super beautiful, but they’ve done studies and they found that we have a high level of mercury contamination in the air… I had no idea because we live out in the woods but he was being poisoned.”

–Dr. Lauren Lee Stone

 

 “My journey was what I needed to do to clean up his life and to detox his body. And the first step was obviously food. I think that we all are unfortunately in a really compromised place because of the food in the United States. The standard American diet is horrific… our soils are incredibly depleted.”

–Dr. Lauren Lee Stone

 

“It’s very interesting. The second we started to give him amino acids, which I realized it was just bypassing his faulty and leaky gut, his brain started changing and he started connecting, and it was amazing.”

–Dr. Lauren Lee Stone

 

“We were giving him amino acids, we gave him fatty acids, and heavy-duty mitochondrial support. It was a life changing event for him to actually get nutrients in there. And then second to that, it was learning about homeopathic detoxes.”

–Dr. Lauren Lee Stone

 

 “The unfortunate truth is that we have to, in most cases, at least the kids that I deal with, you have to supplement. And really just giving that energetic boost to the cell. Once you have that extra energy, the body can choose to use it where it will and part of that is obviously to clean house.”

–Dr. Lauren Lee Stone

 

“The thing for me that is the most troubling is that kids come into my office, young kids who are on 5-6 medications. They’re all chasing symptoms and not really addressing any of the foundational pieces. I see this particularly with kids who have emotional expressions of disease, either who have focus issues, rage issues, or depression.”

–Dr. Lauren Lee Stone

 

“I would say that the most basic commonality is food and the piece that we need to change right now is glyphosate. And thankfully, there have been a few great rulings on glyphosate in the United States just pass in the last two weeks.”

–Dr. Lauren Lee Stone

 

“In truth, everything is part of a unified system. You can’t speak of one without speaking of the whole. So that’s what homotoxicology does, it looks at the whole being. It also looks at the being in terms of essential foundations which really is, it’s light and vibration.”

–Dr. Lauren Lee Stone

 

“We are light beings, we are all made up of vibrations. If you think back to basic chemistry, our bodies are made up of cells which can be broken down into molecules then atoms. We have electrons which circle the atom and the electrons vibrate.”

–Dr. Lauren Lee Stone

 

“Everything in the universe has its own electromagnetic vibrational signature. And that includes all living and nonliving things, it includes things that are healthy for us and not healthy for us. It also includes things like healthy tissues and disease tissues.”

–Dr. Lauren Lee Stone

 

“In my experience, infections like Lyme, strep, and whatever else, live often in biofilms, which means they have this little happy family of heavy metals that are with them, fungus that’s with them, and they’re out sort of together, hiding out in the body.”

–Dr. Lauren Lee Stone

In this week’s episode of IMPACT, we had a conversation with the inspirational Dr. Elisa Song. Dr. Song is an integrative pediatrician and a pediatric functional medicine expert. She has been doing this for over two decades now and it’s safe to assume that she is a powerful force in the integrative pediatric community. Today, she is here to talk to us about how to raise our children to grow up to live healthy and meaningful lives.

 

Dr. Song discusses how she became involved with integrative pediatric care, how Swanson’s TV dinners changed the way we view food, the rising sugar epidemic, and more. Dr. Song also speaks about everything we need to know about the gut microbiome, what vitamins most kids are deficient in, and suggests vital elements to maintain immune health.

 

As we start to pick up the pieces after a long pandemic and the catastrophe it has left in its wake, we must begin to think about the psychological toll it has had on our children. And continuing to feed them foods with artificial colors and ingredients will only worsen things. Make sure to make time for cooking healthy home-cooked meals and monitor what your kids’ minds are consuming as well. 

 

Tune in, take notes, and begin taking charge of your family’s well-being!

“There are so many pharmaceutical, industrial, and agricultural forces that are making it so challenging to change how we eat and how we think about food.”

– Dr. Elisa Song, MD

 

“From the 1950s on, there was a huge rise in diabetes, heart disease, obesity, metabolic syndrome, chronic disease in adults and kids. Well what happened in 1953? That was when Swanson invented the TV dinner. That changed history.”

– Dr. Elisa Song, MD

 

“The #1 thing that can make a huge difference for kids and parents is if everybody knew how to read a food label. If everybody knew how to read a food label from a child-friendly, gut-microbiome-brain standpoint. Not just calories and fat.”

– Dr. Elisa Song, MD

 

“If we train our taste buds to go back to understanding what real food is and also understanding the huge rise in the sugar intake… Now, the average human eats about 17 teaspoons of sugar a day.”

– Dr. Elisa Song, MD

 

“90% of all of our neurotransmitters are made by our gut microbiome. Serotonin makes us feel happy, calm, and relaxed. Dopamine. How many of us parents have kids who can’t sit still?... Don’t just look at their behavioral issues, look at their gut.”

– Dr. Elisa Song, MD

 

“Even in Indigenous cultures where we’re losing a lot of native crops and wisdom, the four crops that feed most of us are corn, rice, wheat, and sugar cane. That’s the majority of plants that most people in the world are eating.”

– Dr. Elisa Song, MD

 

“One of the most common deficiencies is going to be Vitamin D… A lot of us are indoors, not getting enough outdoor time so almost all kids, I do believe, need a Vitamin D supplement to maintain optimal immune resilience.”

– Dr. Elisa Song, MD

 

 “Many kids actually benefit from a high-quality multivitamin. In fact, a study with kids with ADD found that the use of a very high quality multi-vitamin, across the board, had major benefits for their behaviors and their tension.”

On this week’s episode of IMPACT, we had a tremendously important conversation with Dr. Roseann Capana-Hodge. Dr. Roseann is a mental health clinician, author, and founder of the Global Institute of Children’s Mental Health and Dr. Roseann, LLC. She is definitely “Changing the way we view and treat children’s mental health,” and she is here today to give us her secrets to raising healthy kids.

 

Dr. Roseann speaks about how she became involved with treating children’s mental health, how we are in a crisis state when it comes to mental health, why parents should be managing their own stress before assessing their child’s stress, and more. With the pandemic, mass shootings, and other tragedies happening all across the world, and now with those tragedies being more accessible than ever through social media, our children are bound to feel sad and frustrated.

 

Kids and parents need to have something that comforts and calms them because if they don’t, that stressor will keep on coming back and it will bring friends. Make sure to foster strong communication with your child before outsourcing because sometimes they just want someone that’ll listen without judgment. 

 

Make sure to tune in, take notes, and apply the knowledge that this very powerful woman is spilling over onto us, today.

“We are in a crisis state, even before the pandemic happened, which is why in January of 2020, I started the Global Institute of Children’s Mental Health. And here we are in 2022, and it’s pretty bad out there.”

–Dr. Roseann

 

“Parents should be the CEO of their kids’ physical and mental health.”

–Dr. Roseann

 

“We are in a world of Facebook and Instagram where everything has to look a certain way, there’s filters for everything and all of this other stuff. And our kids have a tremendous amount of pressure on them, even when parents don’t put pressure on their kids.”

–Dr. Roseann

 

“If you’re not having regular conversations about how to deal with stressors, and we’ll get into that, you’re not going to jump into a hot situation.”

–Dr. Roseann

 

“Start being a detective and look at your child and go, ‘Wow, they really have a low frustration tolerance’. I talk about a resiliency mindset; you want to be resilient.”

–Dr. Roseann

 

“The best people, in terms of how they handle stress, is how they view it. So if you don’t even view things as a stressor in the same way… we know that there’s better life outcomes.”

–Dr. Roseann

 

“I call this bubble wrap parenting. We are bubble wrapping our kids and we are not allowing them to tolerate uncomfortableness. And when you learn to be uncomfortable, little bits of uncomfortableness is how your kids self-regulate.”

–Dr. Roseann

 

“That stress management, that calming the brain, is something you have to do everyday. It doesn’t have to be a massage everyday, but it has to be 10 minutes of dedicated time powering your brain and body down… Gratitude practices, prayer, biofeedback, neurofeedback, yoga, there has to be quietness to it.”

–Dr. Roseann

 

“14% of people aged 10-18 have a mental health problem. That’s across the globe.”

On this week’s episode of IMPACT, we did not have a guest but we still had an impactful and meaningful conversation. Raising our children to be responsible, successful, and meaningful is something that needs to have the utmost attention as parents. What I wanted to talk about are the 7 core categories that will help kids grow to be healthy and resilient beings.

 

As parents, we may think that having our children grow up with the same customs and traditions that we had is acceptable because we did it and we turned out fine but did we really? About 1/3 of adults in North America take antidepressants. We need to examine ourselves before we embed our cultural misconceptions and habits onto them because they live in a whole new time, a whole new world than we did.

“I used to say to my patients that I’m not concerned with what you do once a year, I’m more concerned about what you do every single day.”

–Meghan Walker

 

“So many of us (apologies to my parents) who raised their kids in the 80s, fall into, ‘Oh, we did it when we were kids and we are fine’… And the truth is, we’re not really fine. Over 1/3 of adults in North America are taking antidepressants.”

 “I want my kids to know how to fail and be rejected with grace. I want them to feel that feeling and also know that they come out of the other side. I do not want to be so protective as a parent that I prevent them from having access to that feeling and to that situation until they are adults.”

“Not teaching your kids how to love the complete capacity of their body and how to move it; that to me is punishment.”

  “I want to be responsible for cultivating that positive relationship with money because I want them to value it enough that they do the same for their children.

On this week’s episode of IMPACT, we had an enlightening conversation with resilience master, Jess Sherman. Jess is a Family Health Educator, Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner, Author, and host of the Feeding Families Podcast. In this show, we talk about what got her into the art of resilience for kids and how we can better our situation when it comes to overcoming anxiety and other mental health issues.

 

There are many issues that we are facing as a modern civilization when it comes to fortifying our minds but Jess makes it evident that what we feed ourselves and our children will have the biggest effect. Sugar consumption levels as well as screen time is causing kids to be more anxious and suicidal. Cutting back on these things as well as consuming more nutritious whole food can have significant outcomes when it comes to our mental stability.

 

As if our minds weren’t fragile enough, the pandemic hit and things got much worse. Jess even says that the effects of the pandemic can affect us for decades to come. That is why it’s very important to find ways to cope with our emotions when adversity hits so that we don’t keep repeating the same dysfunctional patterns that do not serve us. For those who are intrigued by this conversation with Jess, make sure to tune in to her podcast, Feeding Families, and also pick up her book, Raising Resilience, available on Amazon!

“I have always been interested in resilience which is our capacity to grow in the face of stress, in the face of life… just grow into our best sense of self.”

-Jess Sherman

 

“Our capacity to manage stress is totally run by nutrients. When you look at the HPA axis, when you look at hormones and neurotransmitters, all of those chemicals that make us feel the way we feel, those are all driven by nutrition, so there’s work to do there.”

-Jess Sherman

 

“Another thing we’ve normalized is, life is just stressful. Life is just stressful so take a yoga class, breathe your way through it, and what I’m telling people is yes that is true but we have this huge toolbox of nutrition to actually improve our stress tolerance that is often left untapped.”

-Jess Sherman

 

 “What’s going on with kids is worldwide. Anxiety is way up, depression is way up, suicide attempts are way up, emerge visits for suicide attempts… just anxiety itself, we’ve gone up from about 20% to 30-40%-ish.”

-Jess Sherman

 

“I think as a species, we went into this pandemic not so resilient. Things were already not great with our health. We were not very healthy… then this thing hit and everything got worse, emotionally and physically. And I think we’re going to see the fallout from this for decades.”

“Patterns are your nervous system keeping you status quo. It takes a massive amount of energy to shift out of a pattern. It is much easier to just stay in the pattern even if it’s a self-destructive pattern.”

On this episode of IMPACT, we had a conversation with the wonderful Dr. Aimie Apigian. Dr. Aimie is a Board Certified Preventative Medicine Physician with a Masters in Biochemistry and Public Health. She is also an author, speaker, and founder of Trauma Healing Accelerated, LLC. The topic of discussion for this week is understanding the complexity behind trauma and how to properly address it in order to heal from it.

 

There are many factors that play into trauma but many of us don’t know what those factors are, let alone what trauma actually is and how it deeply affects us. In this episode, Dr. Aimie dives deep into how she became involved with healing trauma through her own personal experiences and how she has harnessed the pain and turned it into an art and practice that helps many people in their healing journeys.

 

Of course, we discuss many topics in this episode, but the one statement that Dr. Aimie could not emphasize enough is “less talking, more doing”. Quite frequently, she notices that people tend to stay in the act of expressing their feelings about their trauma and not enough on taking action to diminish it. She asserts that everyone has trauma; everyone in this world is going to endure it at some point. In this episode, she recommends how one should approach their road to emotional wellness and stability. Make sure to have your notepad on hand when you tune in!

“We’ve lumped fight, flight, or freeze all in the same category, and that’s not true. Those are very different physiological states.”

“If we just take that moment to pause and sit, and let whatever comes up, come up, what we would find is that our body would start to shake and tremble because it’s releasing all this adrenaline.”

“When we experience trauma, those are very uncomfortable sensations that happen in the body. And so, our nervous system, unconsciously but intentionally, disconnects us from those uncomfortable sensations it sees as a threat to our survival.”

On this week’s episode of IMPACT, there are no guests, it’s just you and me. The topic of discussion for this episode is resilience. I wanted to unpack this very complex term because there are many layers to resilience and I think that it is something that every entrepreneur, every employee, every parent, every kid… everybody should have.

 

I discuss the factors that lead to substantial and robust resilience, most of which is developed at an early age. When my parents divorced, I flew back and forth between their homes since the age of 11. As if flying wasn’t nerve-wrecking enough, I had to fly by myself and those experiences helped me build a tremendously strong emotional and mental resilience because that ‘goodbye’ hurt every single time. It is the experiences we face when we’re younger that shape us into the people we are today. But we have to address our traumas instead of masking them. 

 

Though some of us have had the privilege of having a home, a nice family, good friends, a full fridge, not everyone has those privileges. It is very important to be aware that people act a certain way based on their life’s circumstances. Empathy is something that we can and should develop in ourselves because not everyone has developed their resilience enough to endure their unfortunate circumstances.

On this week’s episode of IMPACT, we had one of the most intuitive conversations yet with the magical, Asha Frost. Asha is an Indigenous (Ojibwe) Medicine Person, mentor, space holder, author and more. Her mission is to have people decolonize their mind and free their spirit from the manacles that have been weighing us down for centuries.

 

Some of the most impactful ideas from this discussion were how she got introduced to the world of natural medicine and homeopathy; how one shouldn’t care too much about other people’s opinions; how to heal from generational trauma, and much more. Asha emphasizes the idea of decolonizing our brain and spirit, but it’s not only for Indigenous people. She says that all people have been colonized to some extent and now, there is a shift in that aspect.  

 

Asha is truly the modern bridge between the physical world and the spirit world. Her ways of living, ideologies, and ethics have tremendously sparked an inner light in many lives across the globe, including mine. If one wants to take a deeper dive into her journey and receive guidance from a true spiritual master, be sure to pick up her book, You Are The Medicine, available everywhere books are sold.

“When we say we love Canada, Canada is a racist country. Are you seeing that? Are you seeing how our Indigenous people are… being treated. Can we see all of those things? It’s just asking for another level of accountability, responsibility, and reciprocity.” —Asha Frost 

 

“I think we’ve all been colonized in different ways. We’ve been disconnected from spirit. Even our bodies, you know? … And that’s one of the main purposes of my book, is reconnection, which seems so simple but we all need it.” —Asha Frost 

 

‘You are the Medicine’, it really comes from my work as a Homeopath I think because I would see folks in front of me and I can see their vital force beaming at me… I could hear or sense the component of their vital force.” —Asha Frost

 

“I believe that part of the issue is we’re so externally focused, our eyes are all red. I believe that when we could close our eyes and get into that internal space… if I do a shamanic journey, it’s like spirit brings me all the messages.” —Asha Frost

 

“When you think about how she moves the tides, like we have tides within us and she’s always communicating with us. But we have been colonized to just not reconnect to that. Yet, she is doing it anyways.” —Asha Frost

 

“It’s really powerful when you lean into this work and turn off your brain, and you just let your being be, the capacity for manifestation in all elements of your life is really powerful.” —Dr. Megan Walker

 

“I want people to say that everywhere she showed up, her presence made me feel seen.” —Asha Frost

On this week’s episode of IMPACT, we had a very special conversation with Natalie Jill. Natalie is a fat loss expert turned high-performance coach. One can also say she is a supermom. But more than that, she is an amazing philosopher that is turning the clock to a different time when it comes to our mindset. Her mission is to tackle these FAT’s, false assumed truths, and reprogram our minds in order to achieve our highest potential.

 

In this conversation, we dive into many different topics regarding health and business, but the main idea of discussion was definitely learning how to get rid of these social norms or “truths” that aren’t necessarily our truth, but someone else’s. Natalie emphasizes how one should go about achieving their dream life through the process of deciding what it is they want, envisioning exactly how they want it, and then taking the right actions to achieve it.

 

More than ever now with social media, people have been programmed to think that we can only do things a certain way and that is not our truth. It may be for them but once one starts to break the barriers they thought existed within them, one then finds out that almost anything is possible. We are creatures of this planet put here to live, experience, and grow, and the possibilities for different outcomes are endless!

Show Notes: IMPACT, Ep. 275

From Prisoner to Prison Reformer with John Jackson 



BRIEF DESCRIPTION: 

On this week’s episode of IMPACT, we had a very special conversation with a guest who is making tremendous changes in the prison rehabilitation space, John Jackson. John was incarcerated for 18 years in prison, so he shares the details that transpired his tumultuous yet inspiring and heart-warming story and how he uses his traumatic experiences to make positive change in the space of prison reform.

 

Everyone makes poor decisions in their lives but some decisions come at a much higher cost than others and for John, one decision got him wrapped up in the hands of the wrong side of the law. John shares the events that got him sentenced and how the prison system is created to keep offenders at a state of offending by not offering programs to effectively rehabilitate them. But now that is changing with Hustle 2.0, an organization that helps incarcerated adults and youth. 

 

Hustle 2.0 takes a holistic approach to healing and rehabilitating because inappropriate behavior is usually derived from trauma. John has definitely changed my perception of what being a prisoner is actually like and how the prison system is built to keep people going to prison instead of actually helping. John also shares the positive side of being in a gang and how the skills he developed in the gang has helped him be the keen and fearless leader he is today. Tune in to get the full scoop!




KEY TAKEAWAYS: 

[5:25] John Jackson’s intro to Hustle 2.0, an organization that helps incarcerated adults and youth in the US

[7:32] How to know if you’re a natural-born leader

[8:22] John’s horrific experiences that lead him to prison and making poor choices in life

[15:37] There is a good and bad side to prison gangs

[24:42] Where John found a level of courage to walk away from this gang (family) in prison

[29:13] What John’s purpose in this world is

[30:27] What critical changes John wants to make to reform the prison system



WHERE TO FIND OUR GUEST:

MEMORABLE QUOTES:

“We take a holistic approach to rehabilitation and healing. We focus on trauma and we like to say that we’re putting lipstick on the pig by making trauma fun, processing trauma fun.”

~John Jackson

 

“What makes me uniquely gifted to do that is my experience of serving 18 years in prison, being a former gang member, and misusing my leadership skills and my ability to help people; I’ve misused those skills for a very long time.”

~John Jackson

 

 “I never felt like I belonged to anyone. So when I got to prison, when I got to jail, I became a gang member, I got exactly what I wanted. I got my family that put me first.”

~John Jackson

 

“The indoctrination comes from gang members who say, ‘Come in, we’re going to show you what you’re supposed to do, who you’re supposed to be.’ And it’s very militaristic. So my indoctrination was into a criminal lifestyle.”

~John Jackson

 

“I wasn’t even given access to get my GED until 10 years into my prison sentence; to earn any kind of education. That sets an example of what our prison system can be like here in the United States.”
~John Jackson

 

“Within five years, almost 90% of people who are released from prison go back to prison. That’s where my story is a little unique.”

~John Jackson

 

“I know what my purpose on this earth is and it’s not to die in prison. I believe that God has given me the courage to live out my purpose.”

~John Jackson

 

“Many people know what their purpose is, but knowing what your purpose is and choosing to live it out are two different things.”

~John Jackson

 

 “My purpose is to share my story and write curriculum for Hustle 2.0 and inspire people who are incarcerated to see that they can come out through this stronger.”

~John Jackson

 

“And they can take the best out of their experiences in prison like what I got. I got leadership, grit, resilience, determination; I got all of those things from prison… and I get to use that to have an impact on people.”

~John Jackson

Dr. Marie is a Naturopathic Doctor and co-founder of BioHeal Ottawa. One can say that she is a health detective for chronic illnesses and diseases. In this episode, we discuss the dangers of long-haul COVID and other latent infections, and how they can be treated effectively through naturopathic treatments.

 

Dr. Marie dives deep into the chronic illnesses and diseases that can transpire after having COVID. There are many things one can do in order to reverse and prevent this from happening. These viruses can be detrimental to our immune system, so much so that they can wake up a certain illness one has had years, even decades before. We also discuss the controversial topic of the COVID vaccine and its effectiveness in long-haul COVID.

 

Overall, Dr. Marie makes it clear that it is immensely important to inform ourselves of studies and cases in order to make responsible decisions for ourselves and our children. No one is safe from these infectious diseases so we take the necessary steps in order to prevent or eradicate these viruses as timely and effectively as we can. In Dr. Marie’s experience dealing with over 800 patients with long-haul COVID, naturopathic medicine and treatments are the way to go!



KEY TAKEAWAYS: 

[9:12] How Marie became involved in the world of infectious disease and chronic illnesses

[10:21] How many patients Marie has treated for long-haul COVID

[11:02] What long-haul COVID actually is

[18:47] Latent viral infections can transpire after SARS-COV-2

[22:53] Long-haul patients were getting recommended to stay at home and get better but that was not happening

[24:44] Patients who are immune-compromised benefit greatly from naturopathic treatments

[33:52] Correlation between Lyme disease and COVID

[35:49] What is a biofilm

[39:29] Are vaccinated patients protected from long-haul COVID

[44:15] What other strategic things to be mindful of to prevent long-haul COVID or other infectious diseases

MEMORABLE QUOTES:

“I used my roots, my rooted roots of naturopathic medicine, and treated the individual and not the disease.”

~Dr. Marie Matheson

 

“At this point, I have already treated 800 patients, so that’s quite a bit.”

~Dr. Marie Matheson

 “Long-haul COVID is persistent symptoms, so to speak, long after these “infections” should have passed. And so these patients persist on with chronic symptoms. The number one chronic symptom would be chronic fatigue.”

~Dr. Marie Matheson

 

“Something you had in 1983 could come back and haunt you . So COVID really does cause such an immune dysregulation that it does kick open the doors for these latent viruses that could bring up symptoms that I haven’t had in 20 years.”

~Dr. Marie Matheson

 

“Most patients, they were just told that there was nothing to do to help them, and that they should just go home and rest and they’ll eventually get better. That has not been the case.”

~Dr. Marie Matheson

 

“30% of patients who have gotten COVID end up getting long-haul COVID as well.”

~Dr. Marie Matheson

 

“This is a push to my profession but I really urge all you to seek out a naturopathic doctor to help you if you are sick because there is hope to get you better.”

~Dr. Marie Matheson

 

“Could it be that SARS-COV-2 actually gets untreated and then goes into a second phase of this long-haul COVID, of this untreated virus, just like lyme disease?”

~Dr. Marie Matheson

 

“It affects every one of us. So whether you’re vaccinated or unvaccinated, we see these breakthroughs, if you will, infections of SARS-COV-2 in patients that have been vaccinated and you see just as much long-haul COVID in unvaccinated.”

~Dr. Marie Matheson

 

“I’m not convinced that the vaccine can protect you against long-haul; we just don’t have enough research.”

~Dr. Marie Matheson

On this episode of IMPACT, we had a conversation with entrepreneurial guru, Lee Richter. Lee has been named in the top 100 business leaders for 7 years, as well as the Top 100 fastest growing businesses in the Bay Area. She is a part of the Forbes Business Council and is now making her imprint in the digital space known as non-fungible tokens (NFTs).

 

Lee helps us unpack the very complex idea of NFTs and what actually inspired her to cement herself in that arena. Being a successful entrepreneur since the 90s, one can assume that Lee knows a thing or two (or a thousand) about trends and finances, so you won’t want to miss the very valuable nuggets of information she has imbedded throughout this episode.

 

NFTs and crypto are the inevitable present and future. What NFTs are doing to our modern society is very important work because they work as a way to demonopolize the financial institutions that control all aspects of revenue in this country and the rest of the world, until now. We have knowledge, we have power, we have technology, and we must learn to work with it instead of against it. Tune in and find out more about this form of currency that’s changing the way we view art, community, and wealth!




KEY TAKEAWAYS: 

[6:29] Lee’s background and how she got started in the world of NFTs and crypto

[7:55] What exactly are NFTs

[17:58] Example of a practical form of a NFT

[21:11] Are NFTs strictly digital art or physical art as well

[32:47] What are smart contracts and digital wallets

[40:44] What to look for when starting to invest in NFTs

MEMORABLE QUOTES:

5 reasons to NFT: “#1 is authenticity, #2 is access, and #3, you get to also do things like fractional ownership.”

~Lee Richter

(Listen to the episode for # 4 and 5)

 

“So as a marketer, I’m like wow, this is really special. Not only do you bring your favorite people with you, but those who come with you are actually engaged and like being part of the community.”

~Lee Richter

 

“UC San Diego just launched that every single student who graduates will not only be getting their diploma through NFT but also their transcripts via NFT so that they are in control of it and it’s validated that it’s true.”

~Lee Richter

 

“Everyone puts their own value to it. For them, it was worth it to get the picture they wanted and the experience. Now she owns that picture. And to her, it was meaningful to have that golden egg more so than the extra thousand dollars.”

~Lee Richter

 

“Now what happens beautifully and why artists love this so much is that in the NFT transaction, they can build themselves in forever.”

~Lee Richter

 

“They can build it in so 300 years from now, their heirs are still getting a percentage of that art being sold, whether it’s music or physical art, or digital art.”

~Lee Richter

 

“There’s many many ways that people can take the digital and turn it physical or take the physical and turn it digital. So it’s interactive based on the smart contract, what you get for it.”

~Lee Richter

 

“A digital wallet is where you convert your currency… to the currency to trade inside the NFT marketplace. Generally when you start, it’s most likely going to be etherium (ETH).” 

~Lee Richter

 

“None of us had the same opportunity with Amazon. But we do have the opportunity here to jump in and see what can we do and what can you make the best for you and your brands and your life.”

~Lee Richter

“You can build whatever you want in the smart contract. But it’s determined between the buyer and the seller. Where the seller pays for it, they take it with those terms.”

~Lee Richter

On this episode of IMPACT, we had a very inspiring conversation with Margaret Floyd Barry. Margaret is a functional nutritionist, author, and co-owner of Restorative Wellness Solutions. Margaret is a nutrition guru but also a philosophy guru. The way she conveys her knowledge and wisdom is truly a work of art, so you definitely won’t want to miss this episode. 

 

We discuss topics such as the events that transpired that got her into functional nutrition, getting her clients to get on a restrictive diet, and teaching people, both adults and children, how to build resilience and their tolerance for hard things. Many times, people want results but don’t wish to put in the hard work to attain those results. Margaret puts a strong emphasis on not only reshaping your diet but also reshaping and reforming our minds to be able to tolerate hardships and struggles. 

 

The more we push ourselves to do hard things, the easier that specific thing gets. Practice definitely makes perfect (if not, something very close to it). Tune in to find out more on this important issue that does not get the attention it deserves! We miss 100% of the shots we don’t take, so don’t miss this one, especially if you’ve been thinking of trying something new with your lifestyle choices and aspirations.

May 3, 2022

On this week’s episode of Impact, there were no guests, but still lots of important information to discuss. I wanted to take a different approach on this episode and have a rundown of the key takeaways and ideas from our past episodes.

 

From talking about menopausal health with Dr. Anna Cabeca, to discussing the importance of believing in our intuition with Reef Karim, to the inspiring and meditative app/community, Othership, with Robbie Bent, we talk about it all. Also dived into the conversation of not needing to fit in with Katie Prince, and understanding the context behind an opinion with Jon Goodman. 

 

There is much more we discuss on this episode so you definitely want to tune it. It’s amazing to have had so many wonderful guests on IMPACT. I can’t wait to keep on having more conversations with these intellectual and powerful people. It’s definitely wonderful to be able to go back to these episodes that contain so much insightful stories and information!




KEY TAKEAWAYS (with timestamps): 

  • [4:00] Jon Goodman
  • [8:07] Dr. Anna Cabeca
  • [11:52] Katie Prince
  • [14:16] Reef Karim
  • [16:30] Robbie Bent

MEMORABLE QUOTES:

“Really what I took away from his conversation more than anything else is that you have to contextualize someone’s commentary with a lens of nuance.”

~Meghan Walker

 

“Telling people exactly what they want to hear is  an excellent way of marketing but it’s your job as the consumer to have a lens of understanding around the context of experience that that person is bringing to the table.”

~Meghan Walker

 

“We’re looking over this ancient land that has seen many levels of professions.”

~Meghan Walker



“I’ve been asking people lately, what are you willing to give up in order to achieve the results you are looking for.”

~Meghan Walker



“That is really a sentiment that I took away from Dr. Anna’ interview, is that sometimes for us to move forward, we actually have to hit pause on various areas of our lives.”

~Meghan Walker

 

“Robbie has built something truly amazing with Othership. Othership is an app and a physical location where you literally gather in community to ice baths, and saunas, and breathing workshops.”

~Meghan Walker

 

“The key thing that I took away from that conversation with Robbie is that for things to be effective in your life, for you to actually reap the rewards of transformation, you have to commit.”

~Meghan Walker



“We are going to make decisions that are not necessarily in alignment with their expectation because ultimately it gets to be our life.”

~Meghan Walker

Apr 26, 2022

On this week’s episode of IMPACT, I had a powerful conversation with crypto, breathwork, and meditation guru, Robbie Bent. Robbie is the founder of the Othership app, an app that teaches people proper and effective breathing techniques, guided meditations, other strategies to control our nervous system, and much much more. 

Robbie dives deep into the controversial topics of psychedelics and how they can be used to treat trauma we have stored in our bodies since we were children. Something as little as the first time our moms or teachers scolded us can have a detrimental effect on our bodies, and substances like psilocybin help to release that negative energy and make room for positive energy. In a world that’s addicted to constant stimuli, it’s very important to be able to plug out of that and embrace the wonders of the unknown. 

Breathwork, meditation, ice baths, and psychedelics are not going to work for everyone right off the bat. Much like a sport or hobby, these things require practice in order to start having fun with them. Practice makes perfect. Nothing is done overnight, and Robbie makes sure his listeners and supporters know that. His journey is spectacularly remarkable. Tune in!

How to Prevent Founder Burnout

 

MEMORABLE QUOTES:

“I moved to Israel and actually tried a 10-day retreat. A silent retreat. 100 hrs. Meditation is a skill. For the people listening and are saying I tried it, put it on my phone, but nothing is working. Now I feel guilty. I’m sitting down and now I’m just thinking about work. That’s the common response.”

~Robbie Bent

 

“It’s almost like, you know, if you pick up a guitar, or any instrument… a piano… you can’t play a song, so you know, it’s not fun. You go “this sucks” and “I’m no good at it”. That’s what you’re going through when you try meditation and can’t get into it.”

~Robbie Bent

 

“Meditation was really hard and so most people just couldn’t get into it. And then psychedelics medicine is great to create habit change. To sort of act as a catalyst.”

~Robbie Bent

 

“Even when you’re not working, you’re thinking about it. And then what happens is you start to get addicted to stimulation.”

~Robbie Bent

 

“I was so jacked up on my screens, and just like, consistent stimulation, so I’m like, I need a pattern interrupt. The one I did was a dark retreat, which is kind of the ultimate form of this. You live in a cave with no stimulation at all, and you reset your dopamine receptors.”

~Robbie Bent

 

“Things like psilocybin, ayahuasca, FIBO, DMT, there are no cases of people actually becoming addicted to these substances.”

~Robbie Bent

 

“There was this study by this professor, David Nutt, and they ranked destructiveness of substances, and they ranked alcohol was 50 orders of magnitude higher than psilocybin mushrooms.”

~Robbie Bent

“I’ve always been fascinated with Roman ingenuity, and one of the things I’ve found interesting… was how prevalent baths, sauna, and the use of temperature, and the incorporation of socialization was in the Roman culture.”

~Robbie Bent

 

“For me, being in the cold is actually like this safe, psychological space. It’s so fascinating.”

~Robbie Bent

 

“I would just say that if you’re struggling with willpower, with sleep, with fatigue, a really good place to look is, ‘am I foundationally breathing properly?’.”

~Robbie Bent
