Episode Date
EP #117: Being a Change Maker with Ryan Lindner

If you’ve ever wanted to make something in your life different, you’ve felt some resistance before.  Sometimes, that resistance comes from an outside source, and others, it comes from within.  The most effective change-makers are able to identify a source and figure out how best to address an issue.  What if the change you want to make isn’t just about you?


Ryan Lindner is a coach that feels it’s more important that his clients identify than it is for him to tell them.  In fact, it’s not even his job to know what it is.  He’s there to facilitate the right introspection process.  This episode is designed to help you get “unstuck” and move from a person with an important role to a fulfilled member of a greater cause.

EP #116: Experiencing Greatness in the Present with Chris Yonker

We regret the past and we worry about the future.  But what about the present?  You are a high-achieving family person, and entrepreneur/executive, and you want to make the world a better place.  Achievement for the good of humanity is important to you.  Don’t sacrifice fulfillment for fear of being lazy.


Chris Yonker is the ultimate motivational partner for impactmakers.  He acknowledges the truth but doesn’t let conditions define you.  We often limit ourselves for fear of the irrational.  Everyone deserves to live a fulfilled life.  Why prevent yourself?  Chris teaches us how to live in the present and take advantage of the time we have here on Earth in this episode.

EP #115: Deeper Purpose in Business with Alex Brueckmann

Technology has allowed more people than ever before to be entrepreneurs.  It’s an amazing time to be alive and to work.  Most people start a business because they believe they have the opportunity to do something great for themselves.


You can’t forget the opportunity to do something great for society.  We all have that as well.  And it’s never too late to consider that.  You may have started a business because of a great need in the market or encouragement from clients.  Those purposes can still be served alongside a greater one.  Non-profits and foundations serve an important purpose in our world and so can your work.  Alex Brueckmann is going to teach you how to consider the greater purpose of your work and find fulfillment in what you do.

EP #114: Touched by the Music with Dave Combs

There is good reason why young people are encouraged to try playing an instrument.  Creativity has been a recent topic in The Impactmaker Movement and music is great way to express it.  A good melody can be used for motivation, inspiration, consolation, energizing, prayer, meditation, and many other things.  Those who are able to produce beautiful songs have a key skill for humanity.  It can offer a personal touch and also bring us together in community.


Dave Combs is the composer of Rachel’s song and the author of Touched by the Music.  His journey to becoming a professional musician and author is fascinating.  He’s very humble, but has had such an impact on the world.  He lives using his talents to please others (with the encouragement of his wife).  You’ll appreciate the way he connects his gifts with the people that experience his work.

EP #113: Wealth over Riches with Jim Grace

There’s a different between money and fulfillment.  And so there is a difference between wealth and riches.  The financial services industry has taken on a few different forms over the years.  Recently, there is a deeper focus on purpose.  It’s not always about the numbers.  A good money manager has to provide good returns but what does a good financial planner have to provide?


Jim Grace is the Director of Wealth Management at Silver Pine Capital.  His focus is to help people understand their “why” and how to live out their purpose with what they have.  Money is a tool that can be used wisely or not and it’s a matter of aligning it with your goals that determines your success.  You can build riches but that doesn’t mean you have wealth.

EP #111: Generation Impact with Sharna Goldseker and Michael Moody

We’ve said before that giving is contagious.  It applies to many aspects of life.  The more intentional you are about what and how you give, the more effect you will have.  It can be challenging to dedicate the time for deep thought related to the subject.  It’s much easier to stroke a check or even sign up to volunteer at a local event that is already organized.  If we all spent a little more time researching how to get involved in the things that we can be most effective, the world will be an even better place.


Research isn’t always easy but it’s necessary.  The philanthropic world has plenty of data.  We should use it to determine the best ways for us to help our fellow humans.  Sharna Goldseker and Michael Moody have each had extensive careers working with foundations, donors, and other generous people.  They each desire to make a better connection between giving people and needy causes.  Their research found some interesting things about how the current generation wants to do positive impact.  You’ll want to note their findings to help you use your gifts and skills for the most good.

EP #110: JSG Investing with Dan Katz

Where you invest these things will say a lot about what you think is important.  Or does it?  What is the story that you would want to tell about yourself?  Many people have their investments (of either type) on auto-pilot and don’t consider what they are actually supporting.  Today’s information age makes it much easier to educate ourselves about what it is that we are investing in.  


Time is certainly a valuable resource.  In decades past, it might have been hard to research where our financial investments go.  You might have had a employer sponsored retirement plan that was invested in a default fund.  This may or may not have been a good financial investment for you, but what did it do for the world?  Dan Katz is the the Co-Founder of Amberwave Partners and investment firm that has developed a new concept to consider - JSG investing.  Listen in as Dan explains this new concept that could help you reach your impact goals.

EP #109: Being Energy Aware with Bran Katanec

We all have things that we get excited about.  Unfortunately, we don’t always seek them.  It seems obvious, but the world can often distract us from what is most meaningful.  The most you concentrate on what is, the more you’ll find yourself making a positive impact.


Bran Katanec is energy aware.  Although, he would tell you that wasn’t always the case.  He grew up in war-torn Croatia and there were times that his life was troublesome.  He credits music with saving his life and it is that outlet that allows him to find fulfillment these days.  He coaches people to help them find what brings them the most energy and use keen awareness to find it.  This episode will help you concentrate on what is most important to you.

EP #108: Doing the most good with Marina Feffer

Our podcast is all about using your gifts and skills to make a positive impact in the world.  We can all do something.  But what if we all did the MOST we possibly could?  What if it was prioritized above all else?


When you operate from a mindset of abundance, it’s a lot easier to put giving first.  Everyone’s “enough” is going to look a little different but whatever it is, finding it leads to finding the most good that you can do.  Today’s episode covers today’s wealth gap (the current need for positive impact) and some steps to slim that margin (the actions we should take). Marina Feffer co-founded Generation Pledge in order to help people give as much as they possibly can (more than just money) to positive impact.

EP #107: Doing Your Good with Sybil Ackerman-Munson

It takes some effort to be effectively generous.  You have to identify causes that are important to you, develop a relationship, support them monetarily and physically, and measure progress.  Communication is important just like many areas of life.  Unfortunately, it’s not always prioritized in the impact space.


All stakeholders in a generous contingent should be heard whether it’s one person or a huge family.  Sybil Ackerman-Munson has extensive experience in the non-profit industry and the world of generosity.  She has worked with many families and organizations to facilitate plan and gifts to make the world a better place.  She has dedicated much of her time to educating generous people about how to give their best.  You’ll want to note her tips on how to be the best donor you can be.

EP #105: What it Takes to Write a Book and Make the World a Better Place with Sarah Schott

We all have a different mix of creativity.  Some are visual, some are audible, and still others take on another form.  There is no right or wrong way to do it.  Authors certainly have a way with words but they also have a special storytelling gift.  We all appreciate a good story and there’s something about true stories that really hit home.


Sarah Schott is the author of Saving Society with God, Nature, & Music.  This is a pretty bold statement.  Sarah is able to combine her life experiences in a story format that is incredibly educational and entertaining.  She has a perspective on life and hope that we can all hope to experience.  You’ll feel inspired by her ability to make the most of what she has to make the world a better place.

EP #104: Making the World a Nicer Place with Phillip Mountrose

It can be easy to be hard oneself and listen the messages that tell us we are not enough.  In this scenario, we are less likely to help each other and more likely to be miss the meaningful things in life.  Instead, we should work to be aware of the things that are joyful.  


A more aware life is a more connected life and connection is meaningful for our fulfillment.  Phillip Mountrose is a the Co-Director of the Awakenings Institute with his wife, Jane.  Together, they have been helping people heal spiritually and holistically.  Their goal is to create a more loving world.  This episode will help you think more freely and feel a stronger sense of purpose and direction.

EP #103: Socks and Social Enterprise with John and Mark Cronin

What if you could live out your child hood dream and make a positive impact in the world at the same time?  You can!  And your type of abilities don’t matter.  There is a place for everyone to do something great.  As long as you follow your heart, follow your dream, work hard, and show you can do.


Those are the words of one of our guests this week.  John Cronin is an entrepreneur at heart.  When he had graduated school and was looking for something to do in life he couldn’t find anything that fit his skillset - so he made something.  He asked his dad, Mark, if they could start a sock business together (it was actually a food truck first).  Mark was honored that his son made the request and thus, John’s Crazy Socks was born.  Listen in as we John and Mark show us how business can and SHOULD be a social enterprise.

EP #102: Digital Transformation with Raj Sundarason

Isn’t artificial intelligence fascinating?  There are so many powerful tech platforms out there that it’s hard to keep up.  That’s no excuse though.  If you want to win in business or in the impact space, you must be on the cutting edge of technology.  You and everyone on your team can’t learn every process but they can’t complete them efficiently and effectively.  That’s where the best technology comes in.


Raj Sundarason is the DAP Strategist.  He helps organizations make digital transformations.  It’s not just digitization.  It’s completely changing the way you think about the processes that you may have been executing for years.  That may seem like intimidating, bad news.  Yet, it’s really good news because technology will allow people to do things with out having prior knowledge.  Raj will teach you how to advance positive impact in the digital world.

EP #99: Working Hard and Treating People Right with DC Glenn

Success is something that everyone wants - but do they seek it?  You can’t overestimate effort and as impactmakers we can never forget that.  We spend a lot of time visioning and dreaming of the positive impact that we can make in the world.  We see people in need and dream of helping.  This is noble, even necessary.  However, what good are the dream if we don’t put the work in to achieve them?

You should never limit our ability to achieve.  You should also maximize all of your opportunities.  Know that not everyone will play out as you desire, but they all are valuable whether as you expect, a learning experience, or a chance to find another opportunity.  Today’s guest is DC Glenn, The Brain Supreme, from Tag Team.  Yes, he’s a DJ and rapper, but he’s an inspiring business person and lifelong learner.  He’s going to teach you why it’s important to work hard and learn “how to learn.”

EP #98: The Four Things You Can Do With Money with Mac Gardner

Studies show that children can have foundational money experiences as early as age five.  These lessons can last a lifetime and it’s important to make sure that young people have a health relationship with their possessions.  Technology often gets a bad review when it attracts the attention of young people.  But, what if we could use it as a positive force for education and assistance?


Mac Gardner has about two decades of experience working in the financial and technology space.  He’s written multiple books and his most recent project is dedicated to teaching children the importance of understanding how money works.  He also founded a technology firm dedicated to financial education for all.  If you combine financial literacy and technology, you have a modern way of bringing the world together and offering vitally important information for all.

EP #97: Charitable Giving with Rick Peck

Philanthropy doesn’t have to be complicated.  There are many ways that you can be generous.  Unfortunately, the charitable sector has many rules and items that can confuse people who want to give.  It’s common to default one’s giving to what is easiest or what is suggested by friends and family.  Most importantly, you should ask yourself what is most meaningful.  

Rick Peck has 17 years of experience working in the charitable sector.  His previous career was in personal financial advice and through that work, he obtained a well rounded set of technical finance skills.  They have enabled him to create a strong bridge between people’s investment situation and their giving plans.  He now works as the Vice President for Development and Philanthropy Services at the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation.  His passion for giving is apparent and his knowledge is deep.  Get ready to be an inspired donor.

EP #96: Staying in Your Lane with Toluleke Famuyiwa

Potential is something to be experienced, not reached.  You can’t force lessons and you can’t skip formative experiences.  There’s also no end to the opportunity to learn.  Stories are a great form of communication because they bring you as close as possible to an experience without actually being there.  Understanding your story will allow you reach your potential.  It draws the most information from the experiences you have.


Toluleke Famuyiwa is the type of person that can motivate you to do more than you ever expected.  He’s had some very challenging times and without the proper effort, he wouldn’t be a doctor, author, and motivator.  He teaches, speaks, and researches all about being a better version of yourself.  He also adds in some humor which strengthens any message.

EP #95: Servant Leadership with Rich LaMonica

It’s not always easy to serve others but it’s essential to thrive.  Humans were made to be in community with one another.  Unfortunately, communities aren’t always thriving.  There are times when needs arise and conflict exists.  These are the most important times for us to support others.  Those who can give of themselves consistently are those that make the biggest impact.  


Rich LaMonica was born to be a soldier.  Loyalty was instilled in him since being a young person as his father and grandfather are both Army veterans.  Rich ended up having a 22 year active duty career and still works in service to the military.  He has dedicated the next season of his life to helping other veterans and people from all walks of life be more loyal and find a new purpose after retiring from the military.  Rich is an inspiring and determined leader.

EP #94: Your Leadership Voice with Iggy Perillo

We are all leaders in our lives whether it is by title or by default.  Some of the most recognized leaders didn’t set out to have that role.  They were passionate people who found a strong purpose.  You might say they settled into their positions but settling is far from a leader’s mentality.  In fact, leaders seek challenges and help others overcome them.  This yields growth.  


Working with sled dogs in the wilderness sounds like challenging work.  This was one of the challenges that led Iggy Perillo to her career in leadership development.  Deep work isn’t always complicated but it is necessary.  It can come in many different forms and each person has their own ideal style.  Iggy had dedicated her career to helping people find their leadership voice.  You find that voice by consistently applying what you have and taking ownership in the leadership roles that you have.

EP #93: Internal Health with Simone Giangiordano

Taking care of yourself is among the most important things in life but it isn’t always that easy to do.  High achievers tend to work hard at making something great or taking care of others and fail to consider their own situation.  Burnout isn’t enjoyable but sometimes it’s necessary.  The body shuts down and doesn’t allow you to continue down a destructive path.


Most impactmakers have experienced some form of burnout because we care so much about our work.  We care about doing great things with the gifts and skills we have.  However, we can’t do them if we are without the energy we need to be effective.  If you are burnt out, you maybe have to take some time off.  It will seem counterproductive but it’s absolutely necessary to get back to the effectiveness you desire.  Simone Giordano had to be told she needed to take a break before she realized how much she need it.

EP #92: Fitness for Life with Nate Palmer

Physical and mental health work together.  The healthiest people understand this and apply consistency to things that support the mind and body.  There are lots of diets and plenty of meditation techniques.  But, what which one is the best?  Neither.  The best is what works for you to feel and act well.


Nate Palmer is a fitness coach, author, and podcaster.  None of these things define his purpose though.  The Imapactmaker Movement is about using your gifts and skills to help others.  Nate is clear about his desire to help people live a healthier life but not like your typical coach.  His programs are designed to help people find great habits that work for them.  He is partial to no specific workout, diet, or style of fitness.  It’s refreshing customized approach that everyone can learn from regardless of their work or impact project.

EP #91: How to be a Driven Entrepreneur with Don Cote

Entrepreneurism is the most rewarding thing.  It’s also extremely hard and that is part of the reason why it feels great to build a successful business.  It starts with a vision, it continues with a plan, and is fulfilled with execution.  So, why doesn’t everyone complete these three easy steps?  Many are equipped to complete one or two of them but struggle with the other(s).


Don Cote is a serial entrepreneur.  He started shining shoes when he was a kid and would flip his profits to candy and double his money.  Some people have an entrepreneurial mindset but everyone can train themselves to work with a purpose.  Don insists that you have to lead instead of sell and leadership starts with self.  This has come up before and Don does a great job of explaining how to begin the process.  It starts with identifying values.

EP #89: Embracing Struggle with Kimberly Bell

We all have times in life where it’s hard to push on.  We feel helpless.  We lose motivation.  But, it is those times that we build strength.  It’s amazing how desperation can power us through.  Ironically, it is reflection that carries us forward.


Some people have a an amazing ability to share with relatable vulnerability.  They make a host’s job simple because curiosity takes over.  You almost feel their pain as they describe things.  There’s no intention to elicit emotion.  It’s just natural.  Kimberly Bell has been through some horrible things in her life.  She could have written a horror story.  Instead, she wrote a memoir about overcoming and being better for it on the other side.  Get ready to be inspired.

EP #88: Avoiding “Shelf-Help” with Robert Riopel

Impactmakers are relentless in their pursuit of positive change.  You have a desire to make the world a better place.  You acknowledge shortcomings (even your own) but you learn from them.  Then, you make a difference.  But what happens when you burnout?

You can over-live your passion.  This happens when you work so hard at something that you become less effective and lose motivation.  It’s not the end of your work, it’s just a sign that you need to pull back.  There is a way to rekindle the passion and there’s also a way to make sure it doesn’t the flame doesn’t fizzle out again.  Robert Riopel is a master in managing energy and making a positive impact.

EP #87: Inspiring Unity with Chris Singleton

We all have adversity in life.  Unfortunately, some people’s tragedy garners headlines. Hate crimes serve no place in society but we can’t expect to end them if we don’t know they happen.  It’s news we need to share.

Chris Singleton lost his mother in June 17, 2015 Charleston, SC Church Shooting.  Nine African Americans were killed during a Bible study.  It’s hard to believe that a mass murder occurred during such a faithful act.  Amazingly, Chris has found forgiveness for the murderer and since the shooting has dedicated his life to ending racism and promoting unity.   Chris set out on a speaking career after playing minor league baseball for five years.   His mission is alive and well.

EP #86: Leading Yourself with Eric Winters

Leading by example is not a cliché.  What is misunderstood is that it starts within.  We actually fear ourselves because we are accustomed to being distracted.  The world is filled with messages that tell us that we are not enough and so we believe it’s true.  It’s not.

Eric Winters is a true motivational leader.  He coaches people and to lead themselves to make their teams better.  It’s an interesting dichotomy because it started within but its benefits are without.  He believes that it is a true skill that can be trained.  Everyone has the potential to practice autonomy while also accepting the input of the people around them.  This is the ultimate diversity of thought and best way to lead.

EP #84: Cleaning Up Your “Mess” with Gene Heil

Most podcasts are a great opportunity to learn from an expert guest.  This one is different.  The world is full of messed-up people.  That’s everyone and so there is hurt.  Hurt yields more hurt.  This podcast is less about expertise and more about experience.  We can learn from the most hurtful times.  

Gene Heil is a veteran, author, and ministers who claims to be messed up.  His life experiences with abuse and depression are something to acknowledge and learn from.  He’s now in a place in life where he is prepared to share his stories and help others find forgiveness for the people in their lives.  Ultimately, forgiveness is for the person giving, not the person receiving.

EP #83: Communicating Impact with Bill Hobson

I studied broadcasting because I wanted to be a media personality.  Many people in my life have called me “personality” but not the type I thought I’d be.  Impactmaking isn’t about what you are known for or who knows of you.  It’s about taking positive actions and communicating a encouraging message in all that you do.

Bill Hobson is a real media star but he wouldn’t describe himself that like that.  He’s about as humble as they come.  His humility is a positive message in itself.  Yet, he ads much more with the work he does.  He hosts multiple shows - each with a different focus but a message of impact.  Today’s conversation is all about connecting with others through through effective communication.

EP #79: Investing in Achievement with Emmy Sobieski

Investing is hard.  The stock market is confusing.  There are millions of investments.  Perhaps the best investment though is in oneself.  Professional investors generally have a detailed process that they follow.  It helps reduce biases and emotional reactions.  Interestingly, self-care is very similar.  The better the plan for yourself, the better your end up.

You can be stupid and be a doctor.  


Learning is necessary for everyone but we all do it in different ways.  Some people struggling to comprehend what they read despite being able to speak words very well.  It’s vitally important that we allow all people to learn and contribute to our world.  Unfortunately, current systems do no always allow.  No one is stupid.

There is too much going on in a cancer patient’s life for them to keep track of their treatments and understand how everything works.  What if there was an Amazon for healthcare?  There is.  


Mental health is just as important as physical health.  The Internet has too much information at times and a diagnosis can seem like a death sentence.  This is not helpful.  Rebecca Owens founded Swelter, a “patient immersion application” to work with clinicians to provide information for patients and drive awareness.  Less mental stress means more physical health.
