"You have to own your own story to be resilient. I've had Tourette tics since I was nine. I'm 61, so I've been ticing for 52 years. I got picked on a lot. I got bullied a lot. I still am a pretty big introvert to these days, but as life goes on and you try to integrate into a ticing person into a non-ticing world." - Jerry Gidner, Director of the Bureau of Trust Funds Administration and Board Member of Tics and Tourette Across the Globe
• "People who love you regardless of who or what you are"
• "I can't run away from it. I can't make it go away. I can't hide from it"
• "You either let it destroy you or you let it strengthen you"

I believe life speaks to us in different ways. Many of us listen, but don't know how or where to begin. As someone who has crossed the bridge between life and death, I say simply begin where you are now and get busy living.
I've been seeking answers to some of life's most perplexing questions my entire life. In 2014 I was diagnosed with Stage 3 Cancer, and ever since, I realized my calling existed outside of what I knew to be familiar. As a Board Certified Wellness Coach, #1 Best-selling Author, and Syndicated Columnist, my job is to ask the deep questions of those trying to make sense of their place in this fractured world. I created this podcast as a home for survivors like myself, and those who yearn to build resilience in their mindset and live their best life.
