Dec 20, 2017

In this part 2 episode we share the most important stories of all the guests from 2017, those from our patients. We could easily say these guests brought more value to the surface of our discussion because, well, they are why we do this whole gig.

Three beautiful humans, Erin Jackson, Lisa Maczura, and Saidee Wynn joined us for very different yet powerful episodes to discuss pain, PT, and general healthcare. To say their words are valuable is an extreme understatement.

To wrap things up, we share great words of advice from Jerry Durham as he helped our careers launch in more ways than 1. Cheers to a great 2017, and a better 2018.

This is a throwback episode from the Breaking Student Debt Podcast in which Will sits down with Joe Reinke, CEO of FitBUX. In this episode Joe breaks down the various federal student loan repayment plan options that are available for students. As a large portion of our audience is made up of students or recent graduates, we thought this episode would be incredibly valuable for those weighing up their student loan options.

 

If you have any questions about your student loans or repayment plan options, reach out to Joe Reinke by messaging their Facebook Business Page:

The world of Saidee Wynn, taken from her blog spooniewarrior 

"I didn’t choose the Spoonie life, the Spoonie life chose me.

If you aren’t sure what a Spoonie is, I urge you to look up the Spoon Theory. It’s a pretty awesome story that describes life with a chronic illness. Energy = Spoons (to sum it up in a super short way that doesn’t do the actual story justice…). It has become a symbol for those of us with chronic illnesses. Basically, we never have enough spoons.

I am currently fighting POTS, EDS, PTSD, and many other letter groupings. I feel like I’m out there trying to capture the entire alphabet!  My symptoms from these illnesses have rendered me disabled and dramatically changed the way I interact with the world. They have also forced me to redefine myself in my current roles in life.

I am the mother of a super spunky, energetic little girl. I also have an amazing partner in life, who is absolutely my rock. You’ll be learning more about them as you follow my blog, because they will obviously be the subjects of many posts."

Check out Saidee's incredible blog, recommendations and advice on her website and social media:

Spooniewarrior

and "spooniewarrior" on facebook, instagram and twitter!

Show Notes:

  • Saidee is the author of spoonwarrior.com - all things chronic illness and the journey of healthcare
  • EDS - Ehlers Danlos syndrome
  • Navigating healthcare with persistent symptoms
  • The tipping point of chronic pathology
  • Where do people really learn and connect over their health journeys?
  • Why medical providers should not completely divide people from their diagnosis 
  • What exactly is a spoon? And what about a spoonie?
  • Whats it like balancing the process of pregnancy and managing EDS?
  • “Ive heard of this before, but its not very common”
  • The biggest factor in a successful healthcare relationship - “If a doctor believes you”
  • Are chronic diseases “solvable” or “curable”

 

Keep your eyes peeled for Saidee’s upcoming blog posts, novels and more!

  • If you’re hungry, don’t overlook the multiple avenues Paul has created to help you grow
  • To beat “free", you have to understand the importance of time
  • The AMOUNT of time you spend with a client BEFORE you ask them for their payment, and how easily they spend time with you, the MORE certain they are of your value
