Ep. 35 | Rem Jackson: Final Podcast Episode: Happiness is a ChoiceEp. 34 | Daryl Browne: The Magic of Saying Yes, Enjoying Your Journey, and Finding Your Way
On the journey of our lives, we are always presented with choices. If we are open to this life and say yes to what comes our way, we have a chance to … maybe … see that small quiet road that might be filled with heart and joy for us instead of whisking right past it and never even know that it, with all its possibilities, was even there. How did a man who was on the team that built the original CNN.com end up in a salt cave in New Hampshire? I’ve known Daryl Browne since the late 1990s when we worked together at Classroom Connect which was a company focused on using technology in K-12 instruction. This, in the 90s when people were just learning about the internet and using dial-up modems. Daryl and I have always been kindred spirits and have always enjoyed a personal friendship that had nothing to do with technology or instruction, but more about the journey of life we are all on. You’ll hear the very interesting story about how Daryl and his wife built Soleil's Salt Cave in Exeter, New Hampshire in 2017 to ease their newborn daughter, Soleil's health journey. With a web development career spanning 25 years, 7 continents, and several Fortune 500 companies, Daryl has applied his technology experience to giving people the most efficient and effective path from start to finish possible. For nearly the same amount of time, Daryl has fostered a vision of creating a body of work that would help people focus on the power of each moment of their own lives. That project has led to bottled messages (literally bottled in Ball-Mason Jars he calls Journey Jars), mixed media art installations, and several books. I’m thrilled to share this conversation with my friend, Daryl Browne, with you.

Ep. 33 | Dr. Ebonie Vincent: Sharing our Abundant Blessings Creates Ever Deeper ProsperityEp. 32 | Dr. David Thornburg: Family, Health, Invention and Teaching
The technology on your desktop and in your pocket was invented by…well… people. On this episode, you’re going to hear from one of them as he shares some fascinating stories from those times and reflects on the journey, family, health, and teaching. My guest on this episode is Dr. David Thornburg. David started his career as a research scientist and inventor at the Xerox Palo Alto Research Center where he worked on a variety of projects, including his invention of the first inexpensive touch screen. In 1981 he left Xerox and worked for a bit at Atari before helping start a company to launch two of his hardware designs: the KoalaPad touch tablet and the Muppet Learning Keyboard made in conjunction with Jim Henson of Muppet fame. After that venture, Dr. Thornburg became a consultant with a focus on the role of technology in K-12 education and held adjunct teaching positions at Stanford University, College of Notre Dame (Belmont, CA), University of Sao Paulo, and Walden University. He has been on several advisory boards, including the education board of SETI (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence), and has been an active participant in the International Space Development Conference. I first met David when I was hosting the Connected Classroom Conferences for K-12 Educators in the 1990s and very early 2000s. David was my keynote speaker at numerous conferences all over the United States and delighted audiences with his message of how technology can and will impact teaching in schools all over the country and the world. You should know that you are going to be hearing a founding member of the small group of people who invented what we now know as personal computers. All roads for the computers you use today on your desktop and in your pocket passed through the Xerox Palo Alto Research Center where David worked with the teams that built graphic (point and click) technology, touchpads, and the mouse. His discussion of these times is something I’m so delighted and honored to have recorded for this podcast. Get comfortable and prepare to sincerely enjoy hearing these stories from someone who was in the room, my friend, Dr. David Thornburg. Recommended Book:From the Campfire to the Holodeck

David Marquet (MAR-KAY) was assigned to command the nuclear-powered submarine USS Santa Fe, then ranked last in retention and operational standing. He “turned the ship around” by treating the crew as leaders, not followers, and giving control, not taking control. This revolutionary approach not only took the Santa Fe from “worst to first” in the rankings, but also created more subsequent leaders than any other submarine. Stephen R. Covey called the Santa Fe “the most empowering organization [he’d] ever seen” and wrote about Captain Marquet’s leadership practices in his book, The 8th Habit.Student of leadership and organizational design, former nuclear submarine Commander, and named one of the Top 100 Leadership Speakers by Inc. Magazine. David is the author of the Amazon #1 Best Seller: Turn the Ship Around!, and The Turn the Ship Around Workbook. Fortune magazine named it the #1 must-read business book of the year, and USA Today listed it as one of the top 12 business books of all time. David’s latest book, Leadership is Language, is a Wall Street Journal Bestseller.  David imagines a workplace where everyone engages and contributes their full intellectual capacity, a place where people are healthier and happier because they have more control over their work–a place where everyone is a leader.Find Out More:DavidMarquet.comRecommended Books:Turn the Ship Around!: A True Story of Turning Followers into LeadersThe Turn The Ship Around!

Ep. 18 | Quarantine. Pandemic. Vaccines. Polio. Family.
This third and final installment of the mini-series has had some twists and turns as it came to life. It started in mid-march when the COVID-19 epidemic was obviously going to impact the United States and San Francisco became the first Major US City to shut down. I was researching Pandemics and Quarantines. At the time – mid-March - there was no reference to COVID-19 at all.  That has certainly changed now. Interestingly, what primarily came up were references to polio. Polio has plagued humans for thousands of years. The great Polio Epidemic in the US occurred from 1916-1955.Polio is a viral disease that affects the nervous system, causing paralysis. It spreads through direct contact with people who have the infection. Outbreaks occurred regularly in the United States through the 1950s, with two major Polio outbreaks in 1916 and in 1952. Of the 57,628 reported cases in 1952, there were 3,145 deaths.In 1955, Dr. Jonas Salk’s vaccine was approved. It was quickly adopted throughout the world. By 1962, the average number of cases dropped to 910. The CDCTrusted Source reports that the United States has been Polio-free since 1979. Europe since 2002. But it still persists in small numbers today. In 1941 my dad contracted Polio.  He was 7. His Younger brother, my uncle Dick was only 5. I spoke to my dad and my uncle Dick about their memories of that time and their insights. The conversation took some turns as you’ll see as these sons remembered their parents, and in particular, their father. My grandfather as you will soon discover was someone very special.
