Marc Richards was leading a great life when an incredibly unexpected and horrific tragedy changed life as he knew it. Follow him on his journey from a healthy, walking man to navigating through life with paraplegia.He has not let that stop him from living a very full and fulfilling life, however. He is currently Are Governor at Quest Toastmasters, after serving as President. He is now working on his second book. The first one is titled, "SIX DAYS, THE EVENTS THAT TRANSFORMED MY LIFE." Most people have no idea what it's like to be paralyzed or what a person who is paralyzed goes through on a day-to-day basis. In 6 Days, Marc shares how he became injured, how he recovered, and how he learned to live with his paralysis. With anecdotes taken from his personal life, Marc shares what he goes through every day and how his injury affects the people around him.

Join Dave Nassaney, The Caregiver's Caregiver, author of numerous articles and books, speaker, life coach, and radio talk-show host for caregivers who are burned out, but his most important role is being a caregiver to his lovely wife, Charlene. His latest book that he is now working on is entitled: The Caregiver's Caregiver, A Guide to Avoiding Burnout. It is designed to teach caregivers who are taking care of their loved ones (due to an illness or disability) how to take care of themselves FIRST. If they don't learn this, they will likely suffer burnout and become as helpless as the person they are caring for. Tune in every Wednesday at noon, PST, (Re-Broadcast Saturdays at 3:30pm PST) for interviews with experts in the caregiving field, as they discuss topics of great interest to caregivers, which will help them avoid burnout. www.DaveTheCaregiversCaregiver.com
