Episode 126 – Kathleen Quinn – Pilots N Paws / audio

Pilots N Paws

Kathleen Quinn, executive director of Pilots N Paws (@PilotsNPaws on twitter) joins host Craig Price to discuss her unique animal rescue organization. Four million former pets are euthanized in the United States every year and are killed because they don’t have homes. Pilots ‘N Paws is a national charity helping to change that. Working with rescue groups across the country, pilots donate their time, their planes, and their fuel, to transport animals to places where they will be adopted.

Craig and Kathleen talk about the various kinds of animals they transport (SNAKES ON A PLANE!!), how the pilots coordinate with each other as well as shelters to get these animals to their destinations, how the animals are transported and even the educational programs they’ve created to try and make sure educate kids so no pets will ever need a shelter.

Pilots N Paws  is a 501c3 non-profit organization. Please check out http://pilotsnpaws.org and see if you can help, donate your time, your plane or even your money!

APP BONUS: If you want to help Pilots N Paws out, please download their flyer, print it out and put it up in all the airports you visit.

Episode 125 – Ed Rigsbee – Association Membership / audio

Association Membership

Ed Rigsbee (@edrigsbee on Twitter) joins host Craig Price to talk about the ROI of association membership. Many of podcast listeners are either currently part of an association or even in the leadership of that association. My first question: When are you booking me for your next event? My second question: What are you doing to grow or at the least maintaining your membership? I hear from associations all across the country that they’re always worried about the membership numbers. People don’t see associations in the same light anymore. Thankfully Ed’s got a new book called The ROI of Membership-Today’s Missing Link for Explosive Growth This is what he does, find ways for associations to increase membership by increasing their value to their members. The two talk about how to stop giving the cow, the milk and anything else bovine-related away for free.

If you don’t know Ed, he’s also the founder of Cigar PEG which is a charity that raises money for several charities but especially the National Speakers Association Foundation. I’ve partnered with Ed to create Cigar PEG radio, a weekly podcast highlighting some of the people you might find hanging out in the Cigar PEG suite at the NSA convention.

APP BONUS: I’ve added the first episode with me interviewing Larry Winget so be sure to check it out and if you like it, subscribe to that podcast as well.

The Wounded Warrior Project

Dan Nevins (@DanNevins on twitter) joins host Craig Price to discuss his amazing story and the Wounded Warrior Project.  Dan talks about how he lost his legs while serving in Iraq and his struggles to cope and adjust. Thankfully, the Wounded Warrior Project was there to offer a helping hand, bringing a bit of normalcy to utterly abnormal situation. The two discuss how the Project helps not only the physically injured but the vets who return with the  invisible scars of combat stress (a.k.a. PTSD). Craig also struggles through the interview as the overwhelming reality of the topic makes being a smart ass almost impossible (but Craig finds a way!).  It is an awe inspiring episode that really can’t be missed! 

The Wounded Warrior Project’s mission is to to raise awareness and enlist the public’s aid for the needs of injured service members, to help injured service members aid and assist each other and to provide unique, direct programs and services to meet the needs of injured service members.
