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

  4. There is usually more than one way to accomplish something

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.

David C M Carter’s PHILOSOPHY

Those who truly aspire to succeed in this world understand a mentor’s value. A great mentor is the difference between success and significance.

The purpose of life is being and becoming the very best version of ourselves.

I only ever mentor a maximum of 10 clients at any one time. Given the intensity of the relationships with my clients, and because there is so much riding on their success, I focus a lot of attention on just a small number of clients, guaranteeing a highly successful outcome.

All of my clients are extremely successful. I choose them very carefully. They are the very best of the very best, and my job is to assist them in their efforts to become even better.

I like to keep my client list fairly eclectic. By doing so, I learn from a wide variety of people, and this allows me to help an even wider cross section of interesting clients.

As each client typically works with me for more than three years, I only ever take on two or three new clients a year.

The service I provide is exclusive, bespoke and extremely personal. It’s all about achieving breakthrough results and dramatic transformations, which bring about further career success, more personal happiness, a greater sense of fulfillment and purposeful living.

He shares significant mentor insights from his experience in his blog WISDOM,

Public speaking bio

David is a regular media commentator on leaders and leadership as well as a sought after inspirational and motivational public speaker.

During his twenties, David spent ten years in investment banking and private equity (living for 12 months or more in the USA, UK, Europe, Middle and Far East) where he learned a lot about how to do business in many key cultures around the world – as well as being involved in many business verticals.

In his thirties he transitioned from advisor/consultant to being an entrepreneur in the UK leisure sector, including two start-ups, the first of which was sold, and the second launched on the AIM stock market.

After 20 years of apprenticeship in business and adult life, David spent the next 14 years building and leading, as Founder, CEO and Chairman, Merryck & Co., which eventually became the world’s leading CEO Business Mentoring Company.

In 2010, he exited — and launched himself as THE MENTOR — using the techniques in his first book BREAKTHROUGH.  (At the time of listing the BREAKTHROUGH RETREAT WORKBOOK is offered as a free download)

It comprises the world’s first interactive, matrix-based video interview series about Leadership in 3 formats curated from the content. (100 x Individual Guest interviews.

As well as his fee-paying clients, David mentors a small number of MAD (Make A Difference) social enterprise leaders, who run businesses that impact millions of people from entrepreneurs (E2E Exchange) to Community Outreach (GoodPeople).

David also serves as Chairman of INC – a leading EMEA based business incubator.

In his own words:
“I have been studying human potential for almost 40 years and one thing has become very clear to me over time. After working with thousands of individuals, I find that most already know exactly what they need to do to create outrageous results in every area of their life… they just don’t do it!
The fact is… high achievers (in any field) who have coaches always achieve more than those who don’t. I have seen this time and again, and I’ve experienced it myself.

My personal coach and mentor was W. Clement Stone.

Observe anyone at the top of their game and the results will be the same – they’ve all had valuable guidance and direction, and more often than not, it comes in the form of a mentor or coach.

Of all the things successful people do to accelerate their trip down the path to success, participating in some kind of coaching program is at the top of the list.

A coach will:

  • Help you clarify your vision and goals.
  • Support you through your fears.
  • Keep you focused.
  • Confront your unconscious behaviors and old patterns.
  • Expect you to do your best-and hold you to it!
  • Help you live by your values.
  • Show you how to earn more while working less.
  • Keep you focused on your core genius.

It’s easier to maintain laser focus when you have a world-class, professional coach nudging, supporting, challenging (and sometimes pushing) you in the right direction. This is why I’ve developed a personal coaching program centered on The Success Principles and The Law of Attraction to help get you from where you are to where you want to be, faster than you ever thought possible.

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
