Dr. Amy Novotny founded the PABR® with the mission to provide pain, stress and anxiety relief to those who seek a naturalistic form of treatment when other treatment methods have fallen short. Her unique approach comes from her experience treating in a variety of settings and with a wide range of patient populations over the past 12 years. Her background in orthopedics, sports, geriatrics, balance disorders, nerve injuries, and most recently, chronic pain; and influences from coursework at the Postural Restoration Institute gave her the foundation to develop this treatment method to address a wide variety of painful and restrictive conditions. Her methods have helped countless people reduce and eliminate pain, stress, anxiety, orthopedic surgeries, sleep issues and the need for medications. She co-authored two Amazon #1 Best-Selling books Don’t Quit: Stories of Persistence, Courage and Faith and Success Habits of Super Achievers, which share her journey on how and why she developed the PABR® Method. Her ability to speak French and Spanish has allowed her to communicate with and help various clients from all around the world, including France, Mexico, Central America and South America. She has a variety of interests including running 40+ marathons, running 10 ultra marathons (including two 100 milers), completing an Ironman triathlon, photographing wildlife and landscapes all over the world that has led to several of her images being chosen as Photos of the Day, most notably National Geographic Your Shot World Top Photo of the Day.

 living the dream with author, blogger, and podcaster Wendy Cunningham | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 2050

As an atheist who critically thought her way to faith, Wendy Cunningham believes it’s important to evaluate where our beliefs about God come from as we consider where we might be mistaken. This is Wendy’s first solo book project—she coauthored Success Through Failing—but she's been a writer for as long as she can remember. Her blog, and her podcast by the same name, satisfy her desire to inspire, empower, make people laugh, and share truth boldly. Aside from writing and podcasting, Wendy is an entrepreneur, a wife, and a homeschool mom of three. When they’re not traveling, they’re homesteading on 84 acres in Middle Tennessee. Wendy grew up as an atheist but after meeting and marrying her Christian husband, she was forced to confront and reflect on her beliefs. Why did Wendy believe God wasn't real? How had she come to that conclusion? And most importantly, what if she was wrong? There are usually two types of people in any audience, and she can relate and speak to both personally. The first is the non-believer, the one denying or questioning the existence of God. The second is the believer, the one confident in a faith they want desperately to bring their loved ones into but may not be sure how to effectively navigate such a conversation. Wendy brings a unique perspective as someone who has stood and argued from both perspectives and who has logically thought her way through the common existential questions and stumbling blocks.

 living the dream with investing author and microcap invester Mariusz | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1505

Mariusz Specializes in area of stock market that finance industry hates and ignores. His mantra-investing where others can’t or won’t. The entire financial industry is set up in a way to generate mediocre investment returns. That’s because everybody wants to invest in stocks of companies that are very well known to everybody. It is very comforting for individuals and money managers to be invested in places where others approve and recognize. The problem with this is that the known assets are priced accordingly meaning that the probability of mispricing is low. Consequently, mediocre returns are the result. The biggest money is made in stocks of companies that are not on the first page of the newspapers. The biggest money is made on companies that are on the 20th page but are on the way towards the first page. But in order to find them, you can’t wait for them to be delivered to you on the platter. You have to go out and find them yourself before everybody else finds them. Many times, you have to go into places where others don’t want to go. That’s where the mantra of “Investing where others can’t or won’t” comes from. When this strategy is performed properly with the correct due diligence, it can create life chancing results. Mariusz is a perfect example of such success. He started in 2009 with $10,000 and he turned it into $6 million a little more than a decade later. No, it hasn’t all been in a straight line with no ups and downs. There was a lot of volatility and frustration on the way. This was the price of success. Overall, this strategy delivered incredible investment returns mostly because in this space there is barely any competition from other investors who are busy chasing the names that everyone recognizes and approves. Mariusz the founder of Classic Value Investors and MicroCap Explosions and creator of Value Investing University. Mariusz is also the author of 11 books on the subject of investing.
