Hour 1 Show Notes

Wellness – Body and Mind

Dr. Haley Perlus 


Big changes and lofty goals do not occur like magic. Despite the struggles, challenges, and pushback, they demand sustained action towards the goal. Unwavering action is hard to achieve independently because it takes us out of our comfort zone and habits. The larger the goals, the more critical is it to have outside accountability assistance, especially as time goes by after the “honeymoon” phase of the excitement wanes and the challenges arise.  

Achieving your dream scares you and subconsciously, you sabotage them. 

Your conscious self may want to achieve a goal, if your subconscious is scared, it likely won’t happen. This is what’s known as a “hidden barrier.”

As an elite alpine ski racer, she competed and trained with the best in the world, pushing herself to the limits time and time again.

Boost Oxygen

Rob Neuner CEO


From beer importer to Shark Tank success story, Boost Oxygen CEO Rob Neuner hasn’t had the most traditional career path. After all, a “canned oxygen” business isn’t the easiest concept to explain to doubtful customers and retailers. But in a matter of 15 years, he and his unwavering staff have managed to turn an airy idea into the #1 most trusted brand of supplemental oxygen on the market. 

Now you can find Boost Oxygen in over 12,000 retailers across the country. Portable oxygen has become so big that it was featured on The Simpsons and American Idol, and Boost was also used by players on the sidelines during Super Bowl LI between the Patriots and Falcons. Celebrities clutch cans while they winter in ski towns and some of the biggest singers in the world have a can on stage during shows.

With nearly 10 million canisters sold in over 50 countries across the globe, Boost Oxygen has quietly yet diligently staked their claim as one of the fastest-growing companies in the country.

Richard Battle


Principles are universal.
They are not limited to race, religion, or political party. People live by principle or they don’t.

What Do We Teach Our Students?

Bob Atkins:  Gray Associates

Book: Start, Stop, or Grow?: A Data-Informed Approach To Academic Program Evaluation And Management.

There’s a critical question universities and other high-education institutions are asking themselves: “What do we teach our students?” 

There is a growing skill-mismatch between the degrees pursued by students and those actually sought by employers. Schools want to make program decisions based on what employers want. But that’s a risky move. What if there’s no student demand for it? There has to be a match between what employers need and what students want.
