Episode 177 – Ann Zuccardy – Traumatic Brain Injuries / audio

Traumatic Brain Injuries

Ann Zuccardy (@AnnZuccardy on Twitter) joins host Craig Price to discuss traumatic brain injuries. A slip in a german shower (No, that’s not a euphemism) sent Ann on a new path. Having to relearn things that once were simple not only was a frustration but a crash course on creativity for Ann. There was no real way to rehabilitate her injury so Ann had to figure it out on her own. Understanding how to get across the street or remembering appointments wasn’t something she could put on autopilot. Neuroplasticity became her new conversation starter! Craig and Ann talk about the accident, how she was able to comeback from the injury without much help and how her business changed for the better because of it.

Yuck!

Episode 175 – Dan Nevins – Yoga / audio

Yoga

Dan Nevins (@DanNevins on twitter) returns to discuss yoga with host Craig Price. Past guest (episode 97) Dan sits down with Craig in Washington DC for what Craig thought would be an informative chat about yoga but became an emotional story of coping with depression, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and discovery.  Being a popular speaker for the Wounded Warrior Project, Dan was afraid to ask anyone for help when he started to get depressed because so many saw him as a role model of recovery and perseverance.  It can be hard to ask for help because just showing a crack of your humanity to others can make them think you’re really in trouble when in fact, you just need someone to listen. Thankfully Dan found yoga and it has transformed his life and has shown him new ways to heal, get over his own doubts and shame and help his fellow soldiers deal with their PTSD. Of course Craig can’t be all serious so they discuss downward dog, passing gas in class and more. He even commits to a yoga class with Dan! An unexpectedly touching, emotional and real conversation with a person who has normal struggles just like the rest of us despite his inspiring story and life. A can’t miss episode for sure.

SPECIAL EVENT: This August 20th, 2015 at 6pm EST, join Dan in Bryant Park in New York City as he attempts to break the record for the world’s largest yoga class. Go to http://flavorpill.com/nyc/event/classes/bryant-park-yoga-thursday-august-20-2015 to RSVP for this FREE class.

Episode 174 – David Forbes, PhD – Motivation Marketing / audio

Motivation Marketing

David Forbes, PhD. (@ForbesResearch on twitter) joins host Craig Price to discus the science behind motivation marketing. When it comes to motivation or marketing Craig recoils in horror, so many would assume the prospect of talking about marketing to motivation is torture. Not if you add a neuroscientist and member of the faculties of Harvard Medical School Department of Psychiatry and the Harvard Laboratory of Human Development to the mix. Craig like logic and science so getting David on to discuss the science of marketing was a no-brainer. Talking to the emotional brain can be difficult for many, but thankfully David lays out the 3 types of motivation and the 9 motives in his book “The Science of Why: Decoding Human Motivation and Transforming Marketing Strategy“.  The two discuss what kind of emotions qualify as motivation, why advertisers use puppies and half-naked ladies in their commercials (not the same commercial – that would be double strange) and how we can tap into those motivations when we market our services and products to the public.
