031 - Jim Whitt - Purpose Unlimited

May 4, 2020

jim-whitt.jpg

It was the discovery of his purpose on March 21, 1988 – to help people reach their full potential – that transformed Jim Whitt’s life. The discovery of his purpose was the catalyst that launched his career as a writer, speaker, business consultant and film producer. Having personally experienced the transformational power of purpose, he developed a process to help others do the same. That process is the topic of a book, The Transformational Power of Purpose: Finding and Fulfilling Your Purpose in Life, and is available in an online course.

As a business consultant Jim developed a purpose-based approach to leadership and organizational development. That approach is the topic of another of his books, Riding for the Brand: The Power of Purposeful Leadership.

Jim’s background and education have provided him with a unique perspective in the field of personal and organizational development. He grew up working on farms, ranches and feedlots, earned a degree in animal science at Oklahoma State University and spent a dozen years in sales and marketing with two Fortune 500 companies.

He views motivation and leadership from three perspectives – scientific, psychological and spiritual – which are summarized in his fundamental principle of human behavior – without a purpose our only motivation is reward and punishment.

Jim has taken his message of purpose in life and business to audiences around the world as a keynote speaker. His presentations are highly interactive and highly entertaining.

027 - Lydia Crochet - Pet Therapy with Jeanie the Three-Legged Dog

April 6, 2020

lydiajeanie.jpgLydia Crochet is the "mom" to a three-legged dog named Jeanie.

Jeanie is a three-legged therapy dog in Lake Charles, LA, and the star of her own children’s book, “Jeanie the 3-Legged Dog; I Don’t Need Four Feet”. It’s a heart-warming tale for dog lovers of all ages, reminding readers that anything is possible and it’s okay (and even cool!) to be different. Jeanie shares a powerful message of courage and acceptance, choosing to focus on the things she CAN do instead of her limitations.

Jeanie is an adopted rescue. She was found in a rural area outside of Lake Charles in the Fall of 2007 when she was approximately five or six months old. She had a deformed and crippled front leg that made it difficult for her to walk. She was brought to a local vet’s office where they removed the leg, spay her and listed her for adoption with a local animal rescue organization.
