Hi I am Jason Schemmel.I launched the "Get S*** Done Chat" (#GSDChat) because I want to give awesome people an opportunity to share the experiences of what they went through on the way to their success: the struggles, setbacks, and hardships they experienced; how they overcame them; and how they got shit done to earn the successes that people see today.
The purpose behind this is two-fold. I want to highlight the successes that people have. People all over the world are doing amazing things and it’s so easy for someone to think, “They're so successful, they have it so easy...” but they don’t understand the blood, sweat, and tears that went behind it. So I want to dive into that aspect of it. I also want to show that these successful people have experienced similar drawbacks along their path, whether it be internal or external, as others have and that it’s completely possible for anyone to work through it, do what they love, and get shit done.

After a promising athletic career ended, Darren McDuffie ventured from job to job looking to find his fit. He landed in the pharmaceutical industry which surprisingly, would be his gateway into the metaphysical/spiritual realm. He visited doctors on a daily basis and noticed some people weren’t getting well even though they were on medication. This started a cascade of questions which would eventually hit home when his mother was diagnosed with cancer. She eventually departed the physical plane in 2005.
After Darren’s mother died, the questions became more intense. He started researching to find answers. The answer came in the form of a book called,”Conversations With God” by Neale Donald Walsh. In the book, the author spoke of manifestation, prosperity, and other metaphysical principles. The book explained spiritual principles but he still wanted to know more.

Grey Jabesi: I know a few things, enough to make a good list but I’d rather not prescribe what areas I’m interested in. My interests are eclectic, so I prefer the flexibility of keeping an open mind.
I like to work in places where I am constantly challenged. I do not like safety, it's usually a sign of stagnation.
My greatest frustration is that I buy books faster than I can read them.
What does the world look like in 2030+ ? That's the state of mind I like to be in.
Welcome to my world: http://www.greyjabesi.com/thepodcast/
I’m Stephen Hurley and, after spending over 30 years as a classroom teacher, a curriculum consultant and teacher educator, I’m more aware than ever of the importance of powerful learning opportunities—not only for our young people, but for people of all ages.
While I’m sure that the need for change and improvement will always be important, I happen to believe that there are many, many examples of high-quality learning taking place right across this country and around the world. I also believe that, with the right amount of imagination and creativity, every school can become a place where meaningful and connected learning takes place for all students.
Recently, I’ve put my time and money behind this idea and invite you to take a look at a personal project that has become much bigger than me. Consider joining us at voicEd Radio

Bryan Wish:What if the most authentic people in the world all shared a home? Talented individuals who care about humanity. Their skillsets ranging from music, photography, writing, painting/drawing, videography, dance. What if they were all locked in a home and could express themselves through the medium of their choice to help others realize they are not alone. What they could create and how it could bring people together to connect in meaningful ways could solve societal problems. And what if they had a platform to showcase who they were? I am working to unleash the creative potential of our generation to build a more meaningful world. Www.bryanwish.com

SEATTLE, WA - Born and raised in Washington State, Phillip Broussard discovered his passion early in life, when his father brought home a guitar. His father's original intention was to play the guitar himself, but he soon found Phillip picking up the guitar, when he didn't think anyone was watching. Phillip grew up under the influence of his father's favorites, Pink Floyd, James Taylor, Jimi Hendrix, and Eric Clapton. What started as just a few chords, ignited a desire to share his new found passion with the world.
Then, tragedy struck at 18 years old, when Phillip's father, grandfather and uncle passed away within 6 months of each other.
Phillip put down his guitar and enlisted in the United States Navy, in an attempt to quell his grief. Early on in his Naval career, someone handed Phillip a copy of John Mayer's cd, "Room for Squares". This album reignited Phillip's passion for the guitar. In 2007, Phillip deployed in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom and Enduring Freedom. During this time, he refined his guitar skills...
Now, MTS Management Group is pleased to announce Phillip Broussard has signed with them for publicity and promotions of his forthcoming debut EP, "Wavelength." The five-song acoustic blues-pop EP is scheduled for worldwide release on November 18th, Phillip's dad's birthday. The first single and lyric video will be "Just Wanna Believe."
"I am so excited about this artist," said Michael Stover of MTS. "Phillip's songs and melodies are so hauntingly beautiful. The lyrics grab you from the start and don't let go until they've wrung every emotion from your soul. I'm honored to be working with not only an incredible talent, but also a US veteran. Welcome to the MTS Family, Phillip!"
Phillip Broussard is managed by Andrea Wong.
