Life Life Love | Volume Ten
I hope that 2010 has brought you prosperity. It has been an exciting year for me thus far. Most notably, this past weekend I got to watch my brother cross the finish line of the LA Marathon.
At the end of last year, right after publishing last quarter’s newsletter, I obtained my official American College of Sports Medicine certification. The training for the certification really paid off as I was able to provide support to Brian throughout his journey. I got him about halfway and then his body failed him, so he relied on pure heart and inner strength to complete the job. Truly an inspiring, remarkable guy!
While on the topic of being inspiring let me introduce this quarter’s business interviewee, Lloyd Nimetz. Lloyd is a successful serial social entrepreneur who, as a student, helped found HelpArgentina. He is now the managing director of Blitz Bazaar, a campaign hosting solution which puts the tools of professional campaigners in the hands of citizen organizers. He is an amazing guy and my five questions about social entrepreneurship with Lloyd are located here.
Equally amazing in caliber is this quarter’s wellness interviewee, Dr. John Monagle. John owns and operates the Marin Center for Natural Medicine, which is a state of the art medical clinic in Marin County. John (JK) is a lifelong neighborhood friend who has dedicated himself to helping others through natural medicine. He is an expert in a variety of progressive sport therapies and my interview with John about Naturopathic Medicine can be found here.
Anna and I have been on a tight budget since the move from Southern California up North, so going into this quarter I figured the life experience had to be close to home. However, we have moved to arguably one of the most admired cities on the West Coast, so I also knew it would not be too hard to come up with something. Celebrating Chinese New Year in San Francisco is on countless Internet lists as a “must do,” so I did it.
This quarter I would like to thank Mona Liza for letting me sponsor her CLEM7 Tunnel Run which entailed her running the entire length of the Clem Jones Tunnel in Australia. Her efforts raised funds to support the Royal Children’s Hospital Foundation in their effort to assist sick children in time of need. I was excited that I could help.
If you have clicked through to any of the interviews you will see that I have finally begun to delineate up the material to various depositories. I would love your feedback on the new sites, so if you have the time to write back or leave a comment on one of the blogs please do so.
Wishing all of you a fruitful and joyous spring time!
