Andre Norman



From illiteracy to gang activity, my guest’s childhood prepared him for nothing less than a life of crime and violence. Sentenced to more than 100 years in prison, his journey from the prison yard to Harvard Yard, and a life changing epiphany, is why he has spent every day of his freedom using his voice as an ambassador of hope.

“When you believe and you apply yourself, you don’t need the popular vote. You just need your own commitment.”

You can learn more about Andre’s social justice work at andrenorman.com. His book, “Ambassador of Hope: Turning Poverty and Prison into a Purpose-Driven Life” is available on Amazon to read for yourself or to gift a copy to someone who is incarcerated.

Mark & Crystal Hansen



Mark Victor Hansen and his wife, Crystal Hansen, are internationally acclaimed motivational speakers, entrepreneurs and authors. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Their work hinges on the difference between having just a little bit of success versus being hugely successful, work they say comes down to asking the right questions.

As Crystal says, “…Asking is the way forward, asking is how we evolve, asking is the only mechanism that we have, that reveals everything that is hidden from us. “

“We’re all alive here to do something. As long as you’re learning, you’re vitally alive,” adds Mark.

You can learn more about Mark’s work at https://www.markvictorhansen.com/  and Crystal’s at https://crystalvisionlife.com/. Their titles, including, “Ask!: The Bridge from Your Dreams to Your Destiny”, “The One Minute Millionaire: The Enlightened Way to Wealth” and “Skinny Life – The Secret to Being Physically, Emotionally, and Spiritually Fit”, are available at Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

Chris Herren



He was a basketball phenom, and a drug addict who threw away his NBA career and almost his life.

“I was willing to self-destruct…from the age of 18-32, I took a chance on dying every day, every single day.”

Chris Herren is now sober and is making a positive difference in millions of people’s lives.

“I tell people all the time, who are newly sober, to kind of settle in and get comfortable with the monotony. Because to be good at anything, you got to do it over and over and over again.”

Rhonda Kallman



If you’ve ever had a Sam Adams beer, you may know that it originated in Boston, Massachusetts. But what you may not know is that the woman behind making it a household brand, and a behemoth in the industry, didn’t even drink beer when she co-founded the company. Rhonda Kallman is a whiskey drinker, and today is distilling her own spirits and liquors.

“I knew I wanted to make whiskey, and I knew I wanted to make it here in Boston…the biggest reward for me is when I see consumers try what we make, and their eyes light up and they love it…”

John O’Leary



At the age of nine, my guest was in a horrific fire that burned 100% of his body and nearly killed him. And yet, he survived.

Now, through his own bravery and will to live a full life, John O’Leary is on a quest to help each of us relearn how to live in awe and wonder. “We lose that sense of wonder and curiosity because life beats us up a little bit,” says John, “and because we want to fit in.”

“If I could teach…through my life to seek justice, love, mercy, walk humbly with God, in a marketplace that may not do all those things so brilliantly. That would be a really cool one sentence leave behind.’”

Dr. Richard Shuster



When a car accident nearly took his life, it also gave Dr. Richard Shuster a reboot and now he’s on a mission to make the world a better place.

“I think when bad things happen to us, we have really two choices. One is to get mad at God, ‘how could you do this to me’, and be really angry. The other thing is to say, ‘what can I learn from this? And how can I do better?’ For me, it’s three things. It’s those two questions plus, the third question I ask is, ‘How can I share this in a meaningful way with others so that they don’t go through what I went through?’”

Richard Newman



For Richard Newman, the idea of “finding your voice” has personal meaning. As a young child, Richard was shy, introverted and believed there was something wrong with him. He ultimately learned to overcome this challenge in the most unique of ways while living at a Tibetan monastery as a young adult.

“For me, it’s been a bit of a journey, and somewhat an unlikely journey, which I like to share because if people have something that it’s a dream or an ambition for themselves, to do something that seems somewhat unlikely, for them to achieve, then I hope this message could inspire them…”

Joanne Peterson



Sometimes life sends you down a path that you never expected. That’s exactly what happened to Joanne Peterson, who went from being an Executive Secretary to Founder and Executive Director of an organization that is helping families dealing with addiction and recovery. Motivated by her own personal experiences, she was empowered to use her voice to bring about change.

“I said, ‘No, there’s got to be another way. I know there is, I need, we need to learn about this, instead of just sitting around and getting resources. I wanted an education, at this point, on addiction and why this happens. And how do you beat it…”
