Cheryl Hunter
Rating (average): (1)
Business Type: , , ,

Cheryl Hunter is a bestselling author, speaker, and resilience expert. She was drawn to her work as a result of her own journey; she was abducted as a teenager shortly after leaving Colorado, and that life-altering experience ignited a strong desire to make a difference in the lives of others. Distilling the methods Cheryl used to turn around her own life, she developed an educational method that is proven to turn around results for people in all contexts. She delivers that breakthrough education in corporations, educational institutions, and to individuals worldwide.

A motto on her web site is an inspiring insight: “It’s never too late to be who you might have been. Stop waiting for someday. Your time is now.”

Cheryl Hunter was born and reared in the remote Colorado Rocky Mountains. She is a cowgirl who grew up on a horse ranch, training horses and riding rodeo. Her family’s ranch was so isolated that looking out from her home there were no signs of civilization whatsoever. While she felt it was an idyllic and magical upbringing, Cheryl longed to be with others, and she longed for the opportunity to have her life make the biggest difference possible, so she left the mountains for the city.

Today, Cheryl is a bestselling author, speaker, and resilience expert. She was drawn to her work as a result of her own journey; she was abducted as a teenager shortly after leaving Colorado, and that life-altering experience ignited a strong desire to make a difference in the lives of others. Distilling the methods Cheryl used to turn around her own life, she developed an educational method that is proven to turn around results for people in all contexts. She delivers that breakthrough education in corporations, educational institutions, and to individuals worldwide.

When she was held captive, Cheryl didn’t know if she’d ever see the light of day again or survive; once she was set free, Cheryl became a woman with a mission: to empower people to fulfill their highest potential. In service of that mission, Cheryl has spoken before over and delivered her education to 93,000 people since 1995.

Cheryl is also a noted media personality. Because of the unique perspective Cheryl’s past provides, she is committed to offering solutions for the suffering, making sense out of the senseless, and supporting people to bounce back, be resilient, and triumph in the face of any and all circumstances. Cheryl sees mainstream media as the perfect partner to help her fulfill those commitments. To that end, she has made great impact with her highly regarded TED talks, and is a regular contributor to CNN, Forbes Magazine, Huffington Post, Fast Company, U.S. News & World Report, and more. Cheryl is passionate about empowering women, and is honored to be a member of Maria Shriver’s Brain Trust, a select group dedicated to bettering the lives of women.

Cheryl is still deeply connected to her Colorado mountain roots; she splits her time between her home at the beach in Los Angeles and her family’s ranch in Colorado.

In his words the essence of his philosophy is this:

1. You don’t have to live your life the way other people expect

In short, I’m interested in the convergence between highly personal goals and service to others. You can learn more about that subject in the original Brief Guide to World Domination that was read by more than 100,000 people in 60 countries during the first six months.

The sequel, 279 Days to Overnight Success, provides a case study for anyone interested in building an alternative career using new media.

Bio

During a lifetime of self-employment that included a four-year commitment as a volunteer executive in West Africa, he visited every country in the world (193 in total) before his 35th birthday. Since then he has modeled the proven definition of an entrepreneur: “Someone who will work 24 hours a day for themselves to avoid working one hour a day for someone else.”

Chris’s first book, The Art of Non-Conformity, was translated into more than twenty languages. His second book, The $100 Startup, was a New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestseller, selling more than 300,000 copies worldwide. His latest book, The Happiness of Pursuit, will be published by Crown / Random House in September 2014.

Every summer in Portland, Oregon, Chris hosts the World Domination Summit, a gathering of creative, remarkable people with thousands in attendance. Chris is also the founder of Pioneer Nation, Unconventional Guides, the Travel Hacking Cartel, and numerous other projects.

Based on the idea that one should first start with the feeling one wants to attain, then map out what you need to do to achieve them – as opposed to starting with material goals and hoping the feelings come along with them.

She is also the author of the bestseller, The Fire Starter Sessions (with Random House/Crown) a book with worksheets for each session. The book reframes popular self-help and success concepts to cut through dull thinking and fear, and get straight to one’s core desires, pragmatism, and courage – and burn some illusions to a crisp

Linda Sivertsen & Danielle, co-created Your Big Beautiful Book Plan a digital program for people who want to get their word into the world. It tells you how to create a book proposal that will make you a visionary writer, a stronger business person and land you a publishing deal.

She writes weekly at DanielleLaPorte.com, where over a million visitors have gone for her straight-up advice — a site that’s been deemed “the best place online for kick-ass spirituality,” and was named one of the “Top 100 Websites for Women” by Forbes.

For those interested there is a comprehensive income opportunity presented in her DesireMap Licensing Program from introducing people to the products to becoming a licensed facilitator of her courses. Annual Fees for licenses and course material costs are also shown. Once on board facilitators are listed in their own Directory.

You can also find Danielle on Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram and of course, Twitter @daniellelaporte. The Huffington Post included her Twitter feed in their list “12 of The Wisest Twitter Accounts Worth Following.”

Her own description is revealing:
holistic: The place where conscious meets cash, and ambition meets inner peace; the space in which all beings and ecologies are considered by asking questions like, How will this make them feel? Who will profit? Who pays? Where does this come from? Where do my thoughts go?; The bridling of intense desire with intelligent strategy; ruthless compassion.

Entrepreneurship has been my back door approach to having conversations about consciousness. All that fire starting and hustling brought me to a place where I’m simply more interested in love, and how to apply it in any given situation. These days, most of my philosophizing is about what I consider to be the most creative force in the universe: Desire. I’m curious about our relationship to “wanting”, and how we create lives that we love living.

Professionally-speaking, I once ran a future studies think tank in Washington DC, and started my own communications company. I skipped college, raised money, wrote books, learned to speak multimedia, and generally learned everything I know through bursts of obsession.

Dr. Ron Stotts offers one-on-one coaching, group coaching, online videos, a downloadable eBook offered for free at the time of writing titled Go In – Find Out and is featured in Ted Talks & online interviews.  He is the host of The Creativity Summit featuring well-respected coaches and speakers in his field.

His book description is a good encapsulation of what his philosophy and coaching is about:

This is a deceptively simple book that can profoundly change your life.

It teaches you “All the answers you will ever want and how to find them Within Yourself” including how to:

  • Heal and quiet your mind so you can be present.
  • Know the questions that will lead you to your own inner truth and wisdom.
  • Give youself transformative insights in ten key areas of your life.
  • Help yourself become more confident, creative, empowered, and loving.
  • Start a process of healing that will expand our consciousness, and open up you mind to creating the life of your dreams.

Don’t just read it — discover yourself within it.

“There is limitless support for you on your journey. There is also support for you to continue to suffer. Where do you look for your support; how is that working out?” – Ron Stotts

Dr. Ron Stotts’ bio in his own words:

At twenty-two I was sitting in a rustic cabin on an island reading the Bible and other philosophies, looking for myself. The Marine Corp had let me see who I wasn’t, now I needed to find out who I was.** Even with my many insights and experiences growing up, it wasn’t until then that I was consciously choosing my path.

That path has taken me through in-depth studies and experiences in Hinduism, Buddhism, Shamanism, quantum physics, and a myriad of schools of healing and personal growth. I was bathed in the light of God, dissolved in the infinite, and blah-blah-blah.

I was also gifted with studying and creating with the most amazing teachers of the times. Chatting with Buckminster Fuller as we wandered through the woods, and Joseph Campbell as we shared lunch in Big Sur. I was in the middle of the “New Age” and loving it. As I learned to quiet my mind, I also learned how to more fully tap into imagination and access creativity. This became a life long passion.

I have been a college English teacher, Co-Director of the Brain Integration Center, Executive VP of Inner Game Corp., and, for a couple of decades, the founder of The Center For Balance and the spiritual community MuShin. We had Centers in California and later in Switzerland, through which I enjoyed counseling, giving talks, and offering workshops throughout Europe.

I’ve learned that the journey is a path of discovering and accepting all aspects of oneself. With the breath as my most trusted teacher and guide, I have learned on this journey that:

By quieting our minds we become more present and in that space we can more fully access all of our innate capabilities. It is from that place that we can discover our purpose and passion to create the fulfilling life we desire.

Everything that comes to us in our life is perfectly designed to support us in opening up our hearts and loving ever more fully.

“Life is a precious gift. If you live it consciously, you will find yourself on an amazingly rewarding adventure that leads you into being all the love you are, and all that you ever wanted. Life is wonderful.”

Jonathan Fields – Good Life Project
Rating (average): (0)

Jonathan Fields is a dad, husband, serial-entrepreneur, award-winning author, speaker, web show host and mindful innovation strategist.

He is on a mission to help individuals and organizations build better solutions, businesses, art and lives in less time, with more joy and less effort. And he’s doing it in a rather unusual way—from the mindset out.

Good Life Project™ (GLP) is a movement founded by Jonathan Fields. A set of shared values. A community. A creed, bundled with a voracious commitment to move beyond words and act. First, as a manifestation of your soul. And then as a quest to have the adventure of a lifetime, and to leave the world around you changed.

It’s about building an extraordinary life, deeper relationships and meaningful bodies of work, businesses and movements. It’s about becoming a creator, a leader, a mentor, a giver, a doer. It’s about telling a story with your life that you’d want to read and share.

When GLP founder, Jonathan Fields, published his 2011 Annual Report, he distilled these ideals into something he called The 10 Commandments of Epic Business. These 10 Commandments exploded online, they were downloaded, shared and passed around thousands of times in a matter of hours. People were printing them out, posting them on walls and sharing them with teams, colleagues and friends around the world.

Fields also realized, after sharing the 10 Commandments of Business, they were bigger than just business. They were about life. Living a Good Life. People who embrace them create legendary stories, have more fun, cultivate higher-levels of freedom, touch more lives, leave bigger legacies and, straight up, live better lives. And that’s what this project is about. Opening a vein to the possibility of living differently in the world.

We are building a global education and support community for individuals and organizations on a mission to live well and give well; bringing together a world-class faculty to develop and offer intensive, business and lifestyle-innovation trainings, events, experiences, mentoring and peer-support. Our first program, the 10-month GLP Immersion, launched in March 2012, generating more than 100 applications for only 15 spots.

Over the coming months, we’ll be launching a selection of new experiences, retreats, trainings and events. If what happened with our first program is any indication, demand for spots will be extremely high. So for earliest notice, be sure you’re on our email notice list.

Come join this global community of benevolent world-shakers today!

A Message from Julia

When I was setting up this business, I couldn’t help but feel sick with how the institution of business had completely drifted from its origins.  One of the oldest words for company in Sweden translates as “nourishment for life.”  Looking around, it was clear to me that business had lost its soul, let alone the capacity to nourish life.

I hated the marketing hype.  I hate the way it propagates a culture that wants more and more and more.  It’s insatiable.  And it created businesses that were insatiable, spiraling downwards in an endless loop.  There is no heart.  No connection to the people.

I wanted to build my business knowing that enough would be Enough.  That working 25 hours a week would be the perfect amount so I could play, hike, nap, read, be with my family and friends and still make the difference I am here to make.

I wanted to know that, not only was I changing the lives of my clients, but I was changing the world because of How I ran my business.

I wanted to feel like my marketing and sales were driven by service, by a commitment to what my clients truly need, and what I can honestly and joyfully deliver.

I want to know that I am not over-using resources and that I’m replenishing the ones I do use.

I wanted to do all this without being labeled naive.  Without being written off as a socialist.  And with making a healthy profit that I could live abundantly and share.

Few were teaching it and even fewer to solo-entrepreneurs.

So I am.

It was the financial meltdown that created so many entrepreneurs whose faith in the system and stability has been shattered.  Whose family values were trampled.  Who deserve much more than the “American Dream.”

You deserve Your dream.  You deserve to be living comfortably and to feel fulfilled.  To feel proud.  To feel whole.

This is why I coach.  This is what makes me different.  This is what you deserve.

Wait, were you just looking for some fun facts rather than a Manifesto?  Well, I’ve got that for you too!

A few interesting (or just plain fabulous) things I’ve seen and done over the years:

  • I biked around Nova Scotia twice and did the AIDS Lifecycle from San Francisco to Los Angeles, 565 miles in 7 days.  Love riding.
  • I run half marathons every summer as an excuse to train.
  • I played rugby in college.  Lots of bruises.
  • I have relatives in South Africa, England, and Dubai. (Yes, I visit!)
  • I took a year off after high school and backpacked alone throughout Europe for 5 months:  I paraglided off a mountain over the beach at Olu Deniz, Turkey; I climbed Ben Nevis in Scotland (where Braveheart was filmed); watched the sun rise on a ferry through the Greek isles; and learned to say “thank you” and “please” in almost every language I could.  Most importantly, I learned that following the path everyone else was on was not exactly my thing.
  • I took a semester off during college and backpacked alone again in Southeast Asia for 6months. I learned to speak Thai in Bangkok, to cook excellent Thai food in Chiang Mai, got into a motorcycle accident in Cambodia, bungee jumped in Laos, scuba dived with whale sharks, and lived for a time in a Buddhist forest monastery.
  • I returned to Asia for 4 months after graduating from college, this time going to India, Nepal, Thailand and Laos (one of my favorite countries)…get the feeling that I like being on the road in fabulous new places?!
  • One of my life goals is at least one international trip a year. It’s been going quite well so far.
  • I grew up without a TV and have never owned one in my life…but I have to admit, I do love watching movies on the computer.

My journey to coaching Do-Gooding entrepreneurs was a wind-y one, but worth every minute.

1) Outdoor Adventure Leader – In college I led teenagers on 26 day and 15 day trips of backpacking, biking, kayaking, etc. I loved helping these “leaders-in-the-rough” overcome what seemed impossible (biking 100 miles in a day, rock climbing while dangling over the ocean). My troops went home empowered and ready to take on the world.

2) Desk Jockey – With a degree in architecture from the University of Michigan, I went to work as a designer in Oakland, CA. I love design, especially sustainable design, but office life wasn’t for me. I also realized that I wasn’t making an impact—especially on people—the way I wanted to.

3) Healing Arts – I took up massage therapy because I wanted to learn alternative methods for healing physical and emotional pain (versus taking pills or surgery). I love bodywork and still practice it, but again, I felt I wasn’t making a big enough impact. Clients would return week after week with the same issues.

4) Coach to Do-Gooding Entrepreneurs– I came to coaching because I love seeing the fire in someone’s eyes once they realize what baggage they get to let go of, who they really are, what they want to be doing with their life, and their potential to make a HUGE positive impact.

By creating a solid foundation for your business, I know that I am helping you make your passion and your vision a reality.  Really a win-win for everyone, as you get to make a good living doing something you truly believe in and I get to change the world vicariously through your amazing work.

I am a Certified Professional Co-Active Coach (CPCC) through the very well respected CTI, but I continue my “training” every single day. I read copious amounts on business, leadership, communication and manifestation. I meditate daily for 45-60 minutes. I am in relationship with other leaders and entrepreneurs striving to do great work. And I’m continuously incorporating fresh wisdom into my coaching process.  I love this stuff.

My clients don’t just dream big, they’re determined to LIVE BIG.

You know that talking isn’t enough. You thirst for meaning and action and change. You want to make a contribution. You stand for something!!

To see clients’ passion come into focus and spring to life is WHY I coach. My blessing is the ability to help Do-Gooding entrepreneurs like you find your inner strength and power so you can create a thriving business that supports you and changes lives!

I’m not only interested in helping you succeed. I’m deeply COMMITTED.  How about you?

I can’t wait to meet you.

Your Coach,

Julia Kious Zabell
