Author Mark Hardcastle recognized years ago that patterns were developing around events in his life. Sometimes it was good stuff; often not-so-good. But in the end, everything always seemed to work out. Was that just a matter of chance? Or was it something he could rely on?

After several years of journaling about that reality, Mark broke his neck in a mountain biking accident near Moab, UT. An event like that has the effect of powerfully focusing one's attentions. Mark has written a book about that and other life experiences. Today he travels around the country inspiring groups of all sizes to thrive through adversity by creating lives of Kindness, Determination, and Helping Others.
The title of his book is The Symphony of Your Life: Restoring Harmony When Your World Is Out of Tune. It’s available in hardcover on Amazon.com or in your favorite e-book format.

Mark graduated from the USAF Academy in 1982. After nine years as a pilot on active duty, he left the military to join a commercial airline. In addition to flying B-777s around the world, Hardcastle spends time in the Rocky Mountains and serves on the artistic staff of the Colorado Children’s Chorale. He lives in Centennial, Colorado, with his wife and four children. Contact Mark today to schedule a keynote or workshop for your organization!

I am a 36 year old entrepreneur from kenosha wisconsin. I have an amazing 11 year old son who is my pride and joy. I am engaged to a phenomenal woman with another son on the way in January.

I am a licensed professional in the financial services industry. I help educate the over 200 million middle class American on how they can get themselves out of debt, save more money, make more money, keep more money and become an entrepreneur by avoiding the 7 GOTCHAS of money.

For the past 15 years I have owned a remodeling company so I don’t come from the finance industry but I have seen the need for this education and the opportunity was presented to me and I took it.

I have set out on a goal of helping at least 1000 families within the next 12 month to start off my crusade against the spread of “financial cancer” in our society.

I truly believe that legacy is more important than currency so I try to provide as much value to everyone as I possibly can before I leave this earth and by doing so I will gain wealth not riches.

After several attempts at making the right podcast for him, Jeff Perry has decided that making a podcast about all things podcasting is just what he was looking for after years of trying various types of podcasts spanning all kinds of topics.

Jeff Perry has been listening to podcasts for 7 years, shows like NerdistThe Joe Rogan ExperienceConnectedSModcast, and Reply All has influenced him to try podcasting. The first show he made was Movies Suck!, a show all about the film industry and current happenings. Eventually he decided to do a show with some friends where they talk about what ever was on their mind called Dookey in the Bowl, but once both of those shows ended he didn’t stop there. In fact, he created 3 more shows but they just weren’t “it” for him.

Podcasting has always been a passion for Jeff, and he continues to try again and again because he loves the art form Podcasting brings. Eventually he came to the question of “why not make a show all about podcasting?”

That is exactly what Podcast Roots (formally Podcast Fiend) is, and this one isn’t going anywhere. So join Jeff on this new and exciting ride where he talks to other podcasters, people in the podcasting industry, or just to himself and help you get started, improve, or rethink how you might be doing your shows.

Nico Brenner is a Chilean tech entrepreneur based in San Francisco. He is a big fan of positive reinforcement and building the habit of happiness. Nico also oversees Product development at Praiseworthy, a company dedicated to helping businesses improve through individual feedback from customers.

For the past 14 years, Nico has participated in more than a dozen tech startups either as a founder, early hire, angel investor, advisor or speaker.

In 2013, Nico and Misa Chien, former CEO of the NomNom food truck, realized they had the same problem. As a consumer, Nico felt there was no direct and easy way to tell companies about his experience with them. As a business owner, Misa felt the little feedback she was getting from her customers wasn’t specific or individualized enough to be useful.

With this pain in mind, they set out to build the easiest way possible for customers to give feedback directly to the people that they interacted with at a store, as well as the easiest way possible for business owners and employees to receive this feedback and act on it. They called it Praiseworthy.

Since launch, Praiseworthy has been a hit with business owners and their customers, quickly growing from being used at only 7 stores in 2014, to saving millions of customers at thousands of stores across 47 US states in 2016.

2014--  I was running a nonprofit organization called Nurture (I still run it);  we teach nutrition and wellness to kids in schools and families (especially low income).  I had made this move from "profit to purpose" (I used to be a high paid management consultant for Fortune 100/500 companies before my kids were born)

 

2015-  I wrote a book called "mountain mantras" to start to build a larger platform to reach/help more people.  I launched a career in professional speaking (inspiration and wellness)

 

2016- a VERY busy year with over 100 radio/podcast interviews, 7 major TV appearances, and a major print/online media tour for a new book (for children) called Give It a Go, Eat a Rainbow.  All about the importance of eating fresh fruits and veggies.

 

Also--  I JUST launched my own podcast last week.  It is called "Mountain Mantras: Wellness and Life Lessons from the Slopes".   Very exciting to spread more help and inspiration

 

2017-working on sequels to books, still running the nonprofit, acting as a mentor to our local business incubator (Ketchum Innovation Center); working on the Board of our local radio station.  And a busy mom and wife. : )

 

Hope that is what you're looking for. Thanks for your inspiration! Kathryn.

Elle Stahlhut Roetzel  is a certified coach, speaker, and mentor. She is passionate to see others set free by the healing love of Jesus Christ and living victoriously with the vision of who God has called them to be. 

To fulfill this passion, Elle has mentored women and led Bible Studies for the past 20 years. Her passion to help women live the overflowing life Christ died to give them led her to write a book this past year. Her book entitled Bridal Redemption will be released November 30th. She not only desires to reach people through her writing but is also connecting with women through her online studies, speaking, and coaching practice. She believes that we all have struggles, they may look different, but they have the power to keep us from living out our purpose. Elle shares her own struggles and painful circumstances and reveals the keys that she used to be healed from her past and live victoriously through the storms.

During the last three years she has lived with continual change as she adjusted to life as a single mom after the death of her spouse, and moving her children to another state. The trials and adjustments that went along with moving her children and getting remarried has had its moments that stretched and challenged her faith. It doesn't take long to realize after talking with Elle, that her faith is rock solid and she never lost hope or was without expectation that everything was going to be okay. It is from this position that she wrote her book and has built her speaking and coaching business.
