Episode 109 – Link Christin – Workplace Substance Abuse / audio

Workplace Substance Abuse

Link Christin joins host Craig Price to discuss workplace substance abuse. Dealing with the workplace substance abuse of a co-worker is never easy. What is appropriate, when is it crossing the line from professional to personal, should you even get involved? Then there is the health and well being of the company as well. Is this person becoming less trustworthy, is their work slipping and hurting our clients? Link Christin comes to the podcast to discuss that and give a preview of his presentation (with co-presenter Jeffery Mangrum) “The Hero’s Journey: Timely Confrontation of Substance Abuse in Your Firm” they will deliver on Friday, November 1st at the Association of Legal Administrators Region 6 Conference in Reno, NV.

The two discuss how to approach the co-worker, how to bring it up to Human Resources, what kind of policies and programs should your company have in place to help and more importantly that a person in recovery is redeemable. This is a podcast no HR person should miss.

Link is the Adviser to Hazelden’s Legal Professionals Program in Center City, Minnesota and CEO of Heightened Performance LLC, a behavioral health consulting company for law firm and law schools. You can connect with him at schristin@hazelden.org

Episode 106 – Karen Kirkpatrick – Healthcare Reform / audio

Healthcare Reform

Karen Kirkpatrick (@comply4success on twitter) joins host Craig Price to discuss healthcare reform and the Affordable Care Act. With the ACA (or Obamacare for the the layperson) front and center in the news, causing government shutdowns and general confusion among the average American, it’s fortunate that last weekend’s Association of Legal Administration’s Region 4 Conference had Karen there to sort things out. Craig tries to figure out how companies are going to adjust, will the impact be that bad and what changes will hurt/help the most. Karen shows how compliance will be the most important part and that individuals looking for insurance need to shop around. Will Obamacare be another helpful government program or another example of government over-reach. That’s yet to be determined but lack of information should be an excuse. Head over to www.healthcare.gov to learn more about the new healthcare reforms.

Karen specializes in  HR and Benefit laws and her teaching style brings the legalese and government jargon to the audience in an easy/fun fashion. Her parent company Infinisource.com is always updating their newsroom with the latest information and updates http://newsroom.infinisource.com/

Episode 105 – Jill Foer Hirsch – Breast Cancer Awareness / audio

Breast Cancer Awareness

Jill Foer Hirsch (@JillFoerHirsch on Twitter)  joins host Craig Price to talk about her fight with breast cancer. Cancer can be a pretty intimidating word, never mind a topic for a whole book. But a book about dealing with cancer in a funny way? Impossible!! Not to Jill who’s book “When Good Boobs Turn Bad: A Mammoir” shows that having cancer doesn’t mean losing your sense of humor. Craig and Jill discuss dealing with friends and family who don’t know how to deal with you and your illness, how to find a good doctor, saying NO to a doctor, guilting your friends into laughing at your jokes and why hats can be a lifesaver. She also turns lemons into lemonade when she realized that a new boob job is just what the doctor ordered!

Full disclosure –  I did read and then write a blurb for her book:

“An amusing handbook for many navigating the scary terrain of cancer, the author offers a blueprint to settle the fears of treatment and recovery. With a fun, sassy perspective, this book is a real gift for anyone starting their fight and hoping they don’t have to take everything so seriously!”Craig Price, author of Half a Glass: The Realist’s Guide

Episode 103 – Anastasia Turchetta – Dental Health 2013 / audio

Dental Health

Anastasia Turchetta (@AnastasiaRDH on twitter) – America’s Dental Hygienist – makes her annual pilgrimage to join host Craig Price for a dental health check-up. America is failing in the oral hygiene department so Anastasia is on the case. The two talk about bleeding gums, soft toothbrushes vs. hard, why men need to get to the dentist more and new advances in anesthesia (not Anastasia)…all while fighting off aggressive hotel cleaning staff desperately trying to interrupt the podcast. Spoiler alert: They do! (Craig spends the intro ranting about it.)  Despite the fact that every meeting with Anastasia makes you feel self-conscious about your teeth, she is always a fun interview and this one is no different.

You can find more about Anastasia at her Facebook page http://www.facebook.com/AnastasiaRDH and subscribe to her weekly youtube show “Humpday Happenings” at http://www.youtube.com/Anastasiardh

Episode 99 – Charles Remington – Weight Loss / audio

Weight Loss

Nutritionist Charles Remington (@FLCCoach on Twitter) the Fat Loss Coach discusses weight loss with host Craig Price. Craig has had a long personal history with weight loss (you don’t get a body like his on just  frappachinos and doughnuts alone) but his understanding on what works can be down right murky. Like most people, Craig gets confused on the constant flip flopping in the media on what you can and then can’t, then can eat again foods so Charles is here to clear up some of the confusion. The two discuss myths of when to eat, how often you should eat, what kinds of foods are best as well as the importance of eating the right amounts of food. Charles also explains why you need to change up your eating patterns and also answers several listeners questions!

Charles Remington is a nutritionist and herbalist who is the author of a best-selling nutritional software program. Known to his thousands of clients as The Fat Loss Coach, his concepts on healthy weight loss are well embraced by the medical community and supported by a large insurance provider. He has conducted more than 200 seminars in the corporate, municipal and education arenas and manages a nutritional practice in Cheshire, Connecticut.
