Heal your body, speak your truth- w/ Dr. Josh Handt

Heal your body, speak your truth- w/ Dr. Josh Handt

When I got to speak with Dr. Josh Handt, it was a great reminder of the fun that we have had as a proud alum of the Charlie Engle Ultra Running crew. For the last two years, Josh and I were part of an incredible crew of people who have support the Penguin Movement for Recovery Event (that's how Josh and I met.)

In addition to being peak physical condition, Josh is abundantly clear in specific ways to optimize wellness.

Josh is a chiropractor who focuses on addressing the underlying causes of various health issues, such as headaches, back pain, TMJ, neck pain, pregnancy, pediatrics, and athletic performance and recovery.

Dr. Handt is dedicated to creating lasting relationships with clients, whether they are individuals, families, sports teams, or companies/organizations. Josh's goal is to enhance overall health and performance for his clients.

Josh was just honored with the prestigious Life U Lasting Purpose blazer. Josh gets to share this honor with his parents

Dr. Handt describes himself as a husband, brother, son, and visionary- and has a passion for making positive change and impact. I would also add brave, with conviction and a willingness to take the road less travelled. Not all of Josh's opinions and findings are mainstream. What I truly admire about Josh is his willingness to explain, to back his findings with experience and research, and to never tell clients what to do.

Josh Handt is affiliated with The New York Chiropractic Life Center as a partner. I am a massive fan of Josh, and I loved our conversation. Enjoy!

PlayFaster-Maximizing results when lives are on the line- Richard Negrin DEP

PlayFaster-Maximizing results when lives are on the line- Richard Negrin DEP

In this podcast, I get the privilege of interviewing Rich Negrin- PA Secretary of Environmental Protection. Some of the many topics that we get to cover include environmental justice, surviving family trauma, team culture, public safety, climate change, the critical need for service in the public sector, leadership, being fully engaged, and the fundamental rights required of Article 1 Section 127.  The deeply personal nature of Rich’s expertise and stories clearly illuminate the importance of these issues.  Richard Negrin – the first Latino ever to be Secretary of Environmental Protection – most recently served as the Vice President of Regulatory Policy and Strategy and head of external affairs at Commonwealth Edison, where he led the development of clean energy regulatory policies and strategies. At ComEd, Negrin led efforts to increase the use of renewable energy, spur the adoption of electric vehicles, and increase energy efficiency. Rich is a champion advocate, who has channeled personal tragedy and family loss, and allowed those brutal experiences to fuel the critical importance of helping others. Check out Rich’s description and comparison of the Navy Seals mantra of being in service to others, and you’ll understand.  While certain tragedies are illuminated- such as the Plum, PA recent home explosions… it’s the solutions provided to the survivors and residents… as well as the humanity displayed by Rich and Team DEP… that you’ll remember so vividly. This is a powerful episode of survival, resilience, and service… all clearly embodied by TEAM DEP Secretary Richard Negrin.

YMR Podcast Episode w/ Emilio DiCicco

YMR Podcast Episode w/ Emilio DiCicco

When it comes to authenticity, you would be hard-pressed to find anyone more authentic than DiCicco Brothers’ Emilio DiCicco. Here’s one of the big-time Partners of the “DiCicco Sells” Real Estate Team. Emilio and I both get to tug onto our Philadelphia roots, but this convo covers WAY more than just Philly! It’s easy for me to say that I am friends with Emilio, it would be impossible not to be… as Emilio’s humor, energy, and kindness will quickly impact you too. Emilio’s vision, intelligence, creativity and hustle are equally important- and those traits also allow me to respect Emilio at the highest level. In a highly competitive Real Estate landscape, Emilio uses his authenticity to his distinct advantage to get optimal results. Emilio communication skills cover all levels, and Emilio literally, isn't afraid to get his hands dirty to do the job. We go deep on this episode- as we cover family, roots, success hacks, strengths of fostering relationships to win at business. We timed this episode well, as Emilio (along with brother Anthony, who we also just featured), has just joined Keller Williams in Doylestown/ New Hope. As you enjoy this episode, stick around for the laughs… and pay attention to the convo as authenticity takes a front seat. I strongly recommend following Emilio DiCicco- one of my favorite follows on social media. Here are a couple of additional links to keep following Emilio DiCicco- but only AFTER you enjoy this Podcast!

YMR Podcast Interview w/ Anthony DiCicco

YMR Podcast Interview w/ Anthony DiCicco

Real Estate Powerhouse Anthony DiCicco is not the typical "chatty type", but make no mistake... Anthony's success is framed by superior communications. I loved getting the chance to get to know Anthony, and our guest shares a ton! Through it all, the recurring theme is how Anthony keeps his success...rooted in the family! We go all the way back to Anthony's automotive days (as this Philadelphia native draws from his family roots.) The experience, tips, and tactics shared are relevant to any profession- and have really translated to Anthony DiCicco's Real Estate success. When Anthony shares that he has only been a full- time Real Estate agent since 2019, I was blown away by his explosive success in such a short window of time. While our guest shares that he hates change, significant change has taken place (both professionally and personally.) There's a new Real Estate team that has formed... and again it begins as a family affair. After 20 years, Anthony DiCicco has formed the DiCicco Sells Team, Brokered at Keller Williams Doylestown/ New Hope. To learn more, and to reach Anthony DiCicco, simply click the link below.

When Lance Bachmann says “Let’s f-in grow!”, he ain’t kidding. My guest on the Podcast is a serial success story, and a must follow.

When my guest, Fernando Mendez, says “just put a microphone in front of me and I’m ready to talk” he’s not kidding. I’ve had the privilege of knowing (and respectfully listening to) Fernando for many years. Fernando is a News and Political expert, covering World News for decades. Fernando has been a respected multi- cultural journalist, columnist, and talk-show host. You may have read Fernando’s perspectives in Print (El Tiempo Latino/Latin Times, El Sol Latino Newspaper), watched Fernando on Television (“En Portada,” on Telemundo), heard Fernando’s voice on NFL Films, or networked with Fernando (via Hispanic Chamber of Commerce and the Mexican Cultural Center.) Most recently, Fernando Mendez is currently found on USALA Media- hosting is Current Events/ Political Talk Show “Compass”, where I have been lucky to be a guest.

What impresses me most, and what you will hear during our interview: is that Fernando is never afraid to share what matters to him, regardless of how controversial that opinion happens to be. Fernando is passionate, educated, and a great listen! I would highly recommend you give a listen to our new episode. Enjoy!

Recently featured as a “Renaissance Man” by William & Mary Alumni Magazine, Steve Tang has been a respected executive and thought leader for many years. Dr Stephen Tang is the author of A Test for Our Time: Crisis Leadership for the Next Normal due in 2023. Steve's op-ed pieces have been published in The Wall Street Journal, The Hill, Philadelphia Inquirer, and Morning Call (Allentown, PA). He is a frequent speaker and commentator on leadership, business, public policy, public health, innovation, and entrepreneurship.

We covered a LOT of ground on this episode. From the importance of protecting immigrants- check out the section where Steve describes his parents escaping China during World War 2. Steve's accomplishments are important and many. The decades long relationship with Lehigh University, led to one of Lehigh’s greatest startup successes—OraSure Technologies. It began in 1982 when Steve rented a one-bedroom apartment... to 40 years later, after Steve finished eleven years of service to OraSure Technologies. During that time, Steve got to be OraSure’s landlord, Chairman, then CEO. 

And finally: unprecedented. In the past year, OraSure went from a company that made 80 million tests for HIV and HCV in its past 20 years to a company that now can make 100 million tests for COVID-19, HIV, and HCV every year! 

It was really important to me to hear from Steve regarding communications, not just from Public Speaking, but also building and leading teams. So much has changed (perhaps permanently) when the business world shut down during COVID. Steve's unmatched communications style is galvanizing, and so important to share- regarding authenticity and driving results.  

Lastly, and certainly important to me, Steve is married to one of my all-time favorite people... Philly News Legend and Leadership Coach Jill Chernekoff. To learn more about Steve Tang, check out the links below.

YMR Podcast Episode w/ Bryn Davis-Mice Media

YMR Podcast Episode w/ Bryn Davis-Mice Media

From Mickey Mouse to Mice Media! Do terms like NFT, Blockchain, Web3, freak you out? You're not alone. When you listen to my Podcast conversation with the Founder of Mice Media, Bryn Davis- his intentions to disrupt traditional media with this Community- based platform become extremely clear. Bryn has built first the Web3 Digital Media Network on Blockchain Technology. You'll see how Bryn has revolutionized the way that NFTs work (digital asset for membership) to create a digital army of 'holders' of MICE that shape, build, and have equity stake in the decentralized Digital Media Network.

Bryn has an extremely powerful story. Forging business savvy, starting from an internship with Disney... to launching regional (and eventually) a globally -sourced food company...Bryn Davis' path is clearly a road less travelled. 

Now, Bryn intends to disrupt conversation and reinvent Digital Media. You may not agree with the opinions in this conversation, or with the new Digital Network; but Bryn will clearly provide an opportunity for everyone's voice to be heard.

YMR Podcast Interview w/ Dr Seema Bonney

YMR Podcast Interview w/ Dr Seema Bonney

YMR welcomes longevity specialist and functional medicine physician, Dr. Seema Bonney. It's impossible to fully authentic when something is holding you back, and people will hear that hesitation when you speak-you can't fully hide that lack of confidence. Dr. Bonney's focus is on helping her patients play offense not defense with their health. I work with Dr Bonney because I started to question the amount of "prescribed" medications in my medicine cabinet. 

Dr Bonney is not only acutely knowledgeable on the subject of integrative medicine (taking preventive, proactive steps to improve your health) but also walks the walk. Pay close attention when Dr Bonney discusses why she entered the field (after years in Emergency Medicine.) You may also love the ease of applying bio-hacks to your daily life (Dr Bonney takes the mystery and guesswork out of the term.) On a personal note, I just spent an extremely long evening in the ER- and the thanklessness  and frustration that comes from such a reactive situation serves as a painful reminder that being proactive with your health will positively help the way you speak, present, live your life. If you really want to optimize your communications, you'll consider optimizing your health. Give a listen to renowned expert Dr Seema Bonney, who believes that "Lifelong health & vitality is our birthright!"

Do you want to learn from a wildly relatable business leader? I have the good fortune of knowing my friend, Chadd Levine, on many levels.

YMR Podcast Interview w/ Nick Lalwani CBI

When you visit Nick Lalwani's Company Website or Social Pages,, and you certainly should, you'll see these three words...

CEO| Speaker| Visionary- and I'd wholeheartedly agree. 

After getting the privilege of interviewing this highly innovative, and wildly creative business leader...I'd add a few more descriptive terms...

Passion/ Intensity/ Energy (and that barely scratches the surface.) 

You would never know when reading, listening to, or seeking creative expertise from Nick- that the fire and energy that you feel didn't always come easy. Nick's skill set began with old-school Gateway Computers and has evolved to cutting-edge technology. 

Nick Lalwani also continues to reinvent himself as Public Speaker (I've had the good fortune of hearing Nick command and galvanize a room- on his FIRST Public Speaking appearance!) I easily predict there will be plenty more opportunities for us to hear Nick Lalwani speak.  

I'm lucky in the sense that I know Nick Lalwani through our mutual friend and colleague, Josh Buchter (Philadelphia AND Bucks County Real Producers Magazine and Events.) Here's how you can get to better know Nick Lalwani.

YMR Podcast Interview w/ Hilary Phelps

YMR Podcast Interview w/ Hilary Phelps

When Hilary Phelps says, "and we're the lucky ones"... one could guess that it's because of Hilary's distinguished Public Relations career, or career in TV, or being part of an extremely accomplished family, or that Hilary is a gifted athlete... The fact is, it's way more than that. Hilary Phelps is indeed all of the things I just described... with a ton of accomplishments... but it's the "day at a time" survival of Hilary's recovery from alcohol and drugs/ and the relaunch of Hilary's life to which we are referring. 

I had the great, good fortune of meeting Hilary at The Penguin-Movement for Recovery 30 HOUR Run (Movement event)- supporting the Ashley Treatment Centers in MD. We both know Charlie Engle, for different reasons. Hilary was going to cover the event that featured Charlie's 30 Year Anniversary from Addiction/ Alcoholism. What we both found was that the highly memorable, and life changing weekend; had this incredible and indescribable power that bound many of the attendees to each other. There is an incredible energy that comes from Hilary that is so unique, so palpable, and so necessary- that you just cannot help but to be drawn by Hilary. 

I'm honored that Hilary chose to interview with me on the program. There are so many incredible takeaways from listening to Hilary Phelps- one of them being an in credible sense of joy that you'll feel. Give a listen to Hilary, and you'll be one of the lucky ones too. When you want to learn more about Hilary Phelps, here are several ways below. Enjoy!

YMR Podcast Interview with "The Dream Team I" Bruno and Stacie Marcinkowski

Big dreams, mobile, fluid, and a savage life, while being true to you... seem unattainable to you? I really think you should listen to our new Episode. Real Estate success stories Bruno and Stacie Marcinkowski exemplify the old adage, that talent and hard work lead to success! Bruno and Stacie, part of the HomeSmart Realty Group, came from humble beginnings and close family roots! You think you're too old, success is out of reach, pay attention to Bruno and Stacie. 

Their story is uplifting, insprirational, and also a reminder that we really have no limits- when pursuing our dreams. Bruno and Stacie launched their relationship and their business partnership later in life. The key for them (and for us) is to align with the RIGHT people, the RIGHT team! There is also the recurring theme of being true to themselves... their beliefs, their core values, their creativity, their energy... and SHARING all of it. You'll see that the more you share of yourself (as evidenced by the complete transparency of Bruno and Stacie) the more power and energy you receive. 

Listen in as Bruno and Stacie share the keys to their tremendously successful careers in Real Estate- multiple states, massive referral network... as well as their secrets to building a substantial network of friends and their ideal blended family. One of my favorite parts of the conversation refers to using all five of our senses! It's not just business, there is a LOT of pleasure to gained by following these two Rock-Stars!

It's a charmed life, a great life and I am proud to present to you... Bruno and Stacie Marcinkowski. To learn more, or to contact The Dream Team 1

You serve your Country- you Lead in the military (THREE tours in Afghanistan)- you better speak clearly. Problem may become, when you return home, you lose your voice... lose your purpose... pick up some addictive habits. My guest, Sean MacMillen, endured all of this, and a lot more- on his road to redemption. I had the privilege of meeting Sean at a spectacular Ultra running event, honoring our mutual friend Charlie Engle. I really had no idea going in that the bond that was formed among this group of "crazy" passionate endurance runners, would be so powerful. 

Sean's story is one of success, endurance, resilience, humor, and tragedy. The key to all of this- at least when I listened to Sean- is to literally keep moving a step at a time... a day at a time. Sean and I have sobriety in common, and that bond enabled us to connect. I remember when I spoke with Charlie Engle, a week prior to the incredible event supporting the Ashley Treatment Center in MD. Charlie said to me that Sean would be a great guest for my Podcast. Now I know that Charlie's right. 

This is a powerful episode with some really difficult topics covered. I also think you'll be quite grateful to hear from Sean MacMillen, who has survived and thrived under incredible circumstances. Give a listen and I strongly believe you'll are glad you did.

When I first met my guest recently, at a life--changing event at the Ashley Addiction Center in Maryland, I saw a guy who was literally the picture of health. He was also crazy enough to run for 30 CONSECUTIVE HOURS! Little did I know that Kelly Thrush had such a spectacularly harrowing story to tell. From the literal jaws of death, body shutting down, acute and near-fatal alcoholism and addiction... to redemption, recovery, ultra fitness and plant-based health... this guy completed the 30 consecutive hours. All of this was to support our mutual friend, and fellow past Podcast guest, "Running Man" Charlie Engle. What I wasn't counting on was the fierce sense of true connection, common ground and incredible sense of gratitude that I would feel towards Kelly. 

The longer I spent with Kelly, on that eventful weekend at Havre de Grace, Maryland- the more I knew I had to share Kelly Thrush's story. 

How and why do you recover as a transplant survivor, how do you change and live a life of power & service, why is plant- based eating so important? How did this guy come back from the dead and fully appreciate his true-love, who stood by Kelly's side the entire time? You'll have to listen to find out these answers! 

I'm honored to share Kelly Thrush with you. Kelly's story, and our newfound friendship, has altered the way that I think. You never know when a jolt of energy will arrive in your path- you just need to be ready when that energy arrives. When you want to learn more about Kelly, here's where to find him. Enjoy!

The successful blueprint now crosses multiple states, with more to come soon!

I truly believe in the power of energy... to heal, to ignite, to transform, to share, to carry us through pivotal moments in our lives. When you listen to Katie Chonacas, you will feel that energy. You want to express yourself, and you're not sure how; you're afraid to take that leap of faith...then listen to Katie Chonacas. Listen to the part of Katie boarding a plan (as a teenager, and alone) to pursue her dreams... when you feel stuck pursuing your own dreams. This conversation will blow you away. KYRIAKI aka Katie Elizabeth Chonacas is a Greek American artist working in the entertainment industry for two decades. Katie is a multi-disciplinary artist who utilizes her voice to inspire change and transformation in people who want to make an impact on the world. 

For Katie Chonacas, popularly known by her stage name, Saint Kyriaki, art is as much the end product as the amount of effort that diligently goes into the creation process. Poet Saint Kyriaki, as she is referred to, breathes music, champions artistry and creativity with no holds barred.

Katie Chonacas took her interest in Greek Orthodox tradition a step further when she adopted the name Saint Kyriaki in honor of the great Greek martyr with the same name. Staying true to family while also becoming unapologetically unique, allow the positive energy of Kyriaki to transform you. Enjoy.
