Bryan Fulkerson

On Hidden Stories we've shared stories of every day people and it doesn't get more "every day" for me than my brother. The conversations I've shared with my brother over the years have had a major impact on my own development. Siblings are a lifelong experiment in nature versus nurture. They can be a gift to each other. With time and perspective the stories you share with your sibling only get more interesting and insightful. Our conversation in this episode covers a lot of what this podcast endeavored from the very beginning to expose, lessons and wisdom on leadership, sales, marriage and parenting. Bryan is on a journey professionally and personally that is being driven by concepts derived from the Arbinger Collusion diagram. The diagram is an illustration that helps people determine who they are, how they see others and why they take the actions they take. We explore what the diagram is, isn't and how his implementation of it has changed him as a leader, husband and father. On to...

Elliott Royal

It is tough and perhaps unfair to label Elliott Royal as just one thing. She's a community leader, empathetic advocate, a thoughtful communicator on topics such as public health and wellness, community access to healthy food, gentrification, government representation, transportation, and so much more. Elliott isSouthEast Community Service Area Liaison with Housing and Neighborhood Services in Charlotte, North Carolina. So much of this podcast is about mindset and being your best each day to make optimal decisions or to choose happiness. But if you don't have access to healthy food that is affordable, how can you be your best? Healthy food is fundamental to life as a human being and no one disputes that, but as she puts it, our community in Charlotte is segregated to a point that not all of us have access to healthy food options. Not everyone in Charlotte has the ability to be their best. This is a huge problem that doesn't get attention it deserves. As a society we love to point fin...

We're exploring entrepreneurship from all angles today with the team from Enderly Coffee in Charlotte, North Carolina. Roaster, rapper, landscaping wizard Marquell Pettiford joins us to discuss how he lifted himself up out of a bleak future through hard work and young entrepreneurship. His mentor, Tony Santoro, owner of Enderly Coffee, discusses why he took a chance on Marquell and why his business and life philosophy is all about treating people like people.

Changed Choices: Karen Kovach and Katrina Eickard

We love to believe that we give people second chances and we forgive and we convince ourselves they'll learn from these mistakes and be better for it in the long run. But in reality, does that actually happen? Who is accountable to what and what do we really want as a society? My guests today are Karen Kovach and Katrina Eickard, two people that know the modern prison system we've built better than most. Katrina tells us her story of generational trauma and tragic personal choices that led to her receiving a prison sentence of 10-15 years for selling cocaine. Her rehabilitation and re-entry into society was aided tremendously by people like Karen Kovach and Changed Choices, a non-profit in Charlotte working to actually give a second chance to people who barely received a first chance. On today's podcast... 4:29 - Some small town worlds are not idyllic. Katrina's small town struggles in Statesville, NC. 8:33 - A desire for glitz and glam leads to tragic choices and a quick rise in st...

Steven Cole

The struggle of our military servicemen returning home to civilian life is well documented. Dealing with the trauma of war is only the beginning. Veterans also have to deal with transitioning to civilian life that might not be looking for the same skills that made them an amazing soldier. So many of us want to help veterans but don't understand how. My guest today, Steven Cole, is here to discuss the myriad of ways we can make an impact on the lives of those who risked theirs to give us the freedoms we cherish. Steven is the Vice President of Advancement at Veterans Bridge Home, where he is responsible for community engagement, communications and development. A retired Army lieutenant colonel, Steven served for more than 20 years in roles including: the public affairs officer in Washington DC, Kabul, Afghanistan, and as the Army's liaison to the film and TV industry in Los Angeles, CA.

Jose Costa

Today's guest personifies the word "leadership." Jose Costa has been a Marketing Manager and VP of some of the biggest food brands in the world, a President at Maaco and the CEO at GrandVision, the largest optical retailer in the world. But Jose doesn't operate like a typical CEO. He doesn't have an office. He sits out with his team. He doesn't use his official title. Whenever anyone asks him he simply says, "I'm in operations." Humility runs at the core of his leadership philosophy. Jose casts a long shadow of hard work, big dreams and leadership wherever he goes and with whoever he meets. It led to promotion after promotion and opportunity after opportunity. He'll share some of the strategies that has led to his success and the lesson's he's learned from his trials and errors. Today Jose has hung up his corporate ladder and exchanged it for his own business and more time with his family. He'll share what compelled him to walk away from the C-Suite. On today's podcast... 3:50 - Why...

Carmella Whitehead

Today's guest is licensed marriage and family therapist Carmella Whitehead. Carmella's hidden story is literally life changing but her everyday work is just as compelling and full of lessonsin happiness, marriage, and parenting and how those begin with a confident sense of understanding yourself. We were not afraid to get into sensitive topics that run through the very heart of her work with couples. Including issues that men face holding onto frustrations and pain, how that affects them and their marriage. It made me realize and appreciate two aspects of my life that perhaps I take for granted. One is how grateful I am that my wife will listen to me vent and she doesn't judge and the time I get with my buddy Scott who occasionally lets me work out with him a few times a week. Having a friend you can share your joys and frustrations with and talk to without the risk of being judged is so vital. It's just one of many interesting and valuable takeaways from one of the most insightful ...

Dr. Steve Riggs

The life of a doctor is tough, challenging and stressful. Yet, if you are chasing your passion, it is also very rewarding. In today's episode, Jeremy gets a first-hand perspective from his friend and neighbor, Dr. Steve Riggs, a urological oncologist at the Levine Cancer Institute. Their conversation starts broadly with what defines a great doctor and finishes with a dive into the opioid epidemic sweeping our country and what he's doing in his practice to help slow it down. From changing the way he prescribes medicine, to the medicine he chooses, to enforcing transparency in prescriptions across his practice, he is making a huge difference in our community. "We are chasing something as human beings and physicians that we will never capture, which is perfection. But that doesn't mean we don't strive." ~ Dr. Steve Riggs On today's podcast... 04:16 - Why Dr. Riggs chose urological cancer as his career focus. 10:21 - How do you know that the doctor you're choosing is consistent and reli...

John O'Sullivan, Youth Sports Coaching Expert

Sometimes when your normal gameplan isn't working, you have to change the game itself. Whether you are a parent who takes an active role as a coach or support member of your child's activity or someone who simply cheers from the sideline, every action you take can have a big impact. Think of all the life lessons and values that we want to instill in our kids that can be learned from sports: leadership, teamwork, communication, honor, competitiveness, ethics, respect, loyalty, coachability, adversity, and the ability to overcome it just to name a few. But to learn these skills we often hand the responsibility of instilling these lessons to someone who may or may not know how to best work with our kids. Today's guest is John O'Sullivan, CEO and Founder of the Change the Game Project. John started the Changing the Game Project in 2012 after two decades as a soccer player and coach on the youth, high school, college and professional level. He is the author of the#1 bestselling booksChan...
