204 Alyssa Stout - Trauma Made Me Do It - The Impact of Trauma on Mind, Body & Soul

Trauma Made me do it. Believe it or not we all experience some sort of trauma throughout our lifetime. Some of us, like me, may have already experienced it and some of us have not yet. Regardless of what or when, our belief system, reactions, and behaviors are all direct results of these experiences. It’s time to take life back into our own hands by rewiring our brain away from trauma, limiting beliefs, and the standards / stigmas from today's society and moving toward a more aligned lifestyle. One that's validated from our own stories, our own standards, and our own experiences. 
It wasn’t until about six months to a year after my trauma that I finally regained consciousness of what my life had come to. Looking into my life I had completely hit rock bottom; addicted to alcohol, drugs, toxicity, and a total adrenaline junkie. I had completely lost control over both my mind and body. Realizing that I was in the midst of rock bottom, I knew that I had to make a change. Allowing myself to finally be vulnerable with myself I learned the beauty behind my mental Illnesses, the power behind my story, the _____ in my truth, and the potential in rock bottom. 

3 top tips for my audience:
1. There is no hierarchy of trauma; no trauma is bigger, more impactful, more traumatizing, or worse than another and is not bound by guidelines. 
2. Your behaviors, reactions and beliefs are based on your own experiences; So stop seeking validation from others
3. You can not heal what you are not ready to face; stop silencing your truth for the sake of other comfort.

"We’ve lived it, so we get it! My divorce took four long years to complete. Looking inward and moving forward was (and still is!) my mantra and I hope to empower others to do the same.”— T.H. Irwin, exEXPERTS founder

T.H., a former experiential marketing executive for USA Today and Jessica, an Emmy-nominated television producer for programs like “The Early Show” on CBS and “The Nate Berkus Show,” know how to emotionally connect with an audience.
“We have stoooories!” dishes Jessica. “Some are funny, others a bit more serious. Regardless, we keep it real, raw and authentically us 100% of the time.”

Jessica was an in-demand TV news producer with two toddlers at home when she found out her husband was cheating - had been for years - throughout her entire pregnancy.

She shares her story of life as a blind person both in Canada and Latin America, her struggles with anxiety and depression, the unique challenges of being hospitalized for psychiatric care during the COVID-19 pandemic, and the refuge she has always found in music. It is her story of choosing life.

3 top tips for my audience:
1. Give yourself grace and compassion, change can be gradual.
2. If you feel like your current situation is unresolvable and you can’t go on, there will come a day when you feel so much joy, and you’ll stop in that moment and think ‘I would have missed this.’ Hold on for that day.
3. Lean on your support networks to help find the help and professional resources you need. Reaching out over and over to find supports on your own can be hard.

196 Joseph Tachovsky - 40 Thieves of Saipan: Learning PTSD lessons from Recon Marines in 1944

40 Thieves on Saipan is the thrilling, untold WWII story of an elite platoon of Marines: the Sixth Marine Regiment’s Scout-Snipers—nicknamed the “Forty Thieves” by their peers. The platoon’s unique skills in stealth, deadly hand-to-hand combat, and reconnaissance behind enemy lines helped gain a critical victory in the Pacific theatre. Written by the son of their leader, Lieutenant “Ski”, this inspiring narrative was composed from years of research and face-to-face interviews with the surviving Thieves.

Joseph Tachovsky is the author of 40 Thieves on Saipan and the son of the platoon’s leader. Graduating with degrees in English Literature, Theater and Art History made him perfectly qualified for a life in the hospitality trade. Based in Minneapolis, his restaurant creations have earned reviews and mentions in Food and Wine, Bon Appetit, Esquire, The Rolling Stone, The New York Times and Jim Harrison’s The Raw and The Cooked.
