What role does the average person play in the grand scheme of things and how do our shopping habits contribute to either a just or injust economic and social order? We are actually more powerful than we think, and our everyday shopping patterns contribute greatly to the state of the world around us.

Get ready for an inspiring story of faith and determination! Coach Cafe welcomes Brian Dickinson, author of Blind Descent: Surving Alone and Blind on Mount Everest. Roughly 1,000 feet from the summit of Mount Everest – also known as “the death zone”--Brian's Sherpa guide was forced to turn back after falling ill. Brian had to decide whether to push forward alone to the summit of Mt. Everest or turn back.
After carefully weighing his options, Dickinson decided to continue up alone. Just four hours later, Dickinson solo summited the highest peak in the world. As Brian prepared to descend back down the mountain's 29,035 feet, his vision suddenly became blurry, his eyes started to burn, and within seconds he was rendered almost completely blind.
Alone at the top of the world, low on oxygen, and stricken with snow blindness Brian was forced to inch his way back down the mountain relying only on his Navy survival training, his gut instinct, and most importantly, his faith.
Tune in to hear Brian's gripping story and how it has impacted his life, faith and what he has to share about empowerment and overcoming challenging situations in life.

Ever wonder what it would be like being raised by blind parents? Ever thought of how different things would be? According to Laura, life was unique but not much different than everyone else's.
Her upcoming book, "Yes, My Parents Are Blind!", is a story about her mother growing up as the only blind child among seven siblings, about her father losing his sight in a tragic accident at the prime of his life, and about the two of them falling in love and learning to adapt to their blindness together.

In the last program before the inaugural Private Exchange FORUM in Dallas, hosts Brent Macy and Doug Field will welcome two guests to the program to cover all of the latest in benefits administration and private exchange technology.
The first guest on this week's program will be Kismet Toksu, president of EBenefits Solutions, an IHC Affiliate Member. In 2002, UPMC was seeking an online benefit administration solution to address its 50,000-plus employees spread over more than 50 business units at various locations. Unable to find a system to meet these needs, UPMC made significant investments in technology and expertise to build the solution in-house. The overwhelming success of this initiative for such a diverse organization fostered the creation of EBenefits Solutions in 2005. In this segment, Kismet and the hosts will discuss benefits administration trends and what's ahead for EBenefits.
For the second segment, starting at 11:30 a.m. (ET), the hosts will welcome Scott Carver, president, PlanSource, to the program to discuss the ongoing revolution in benefits administration. It's no surprise that the benefits industry is undergoing dramatic change, and it’s not really about benefits administration anymore – it’s about benefits engagement. The focus on private exchanges and their growth is one important catalyst for the change we’ve been seeing. 2015 is shaping up to be a milestone year for private exchanges with some very strong signals about how the market is viewing the importance of these technology platforms in the fast-changing health and benefits industry.
On this week's episode, hosts Doug Field and Brent Macy will discuss the latest trends in health management. Following the recent HERO Think Tank meeting in Phoenix, Doug is back in the studio with expert insights and commentary on the state of the industry. To join the discussion, the hosts will welcome to the show Jack Curtis, founder and CEO of Corporate Health Partners (CHP), and chair of the HERO Think Tank's Leadership Committee In this program, Doug and Brent will also cover the key points of Doug's recent presentation at a Benefit Advisors Network (BAN) conference on the impact of technology and consumerism on employee health and benefits.
