    Nadia Ruiz, youngest person to run 100 marathons

    in Business

    Nadia Ruiz began running during her freshman year in high school.  She comes from a first generation immigrant family from Ecuador. Her parents raised their children with the principles to work hard, dedicate yourself to ones education, and always aim for ones highest personal integrity. 


    Unfortunately in middle school, she fell victim to bullying possibly for her academic achievements and late development. Her mother enrolled her immediately in the community boxing and Nadia had the opportunity to discover there as an endurance bug within. 


    She learned immediately that there was something special that running brought to her life so she decided to register for her first marathon at the age of 14. 


    Sixteen years later, she has completed over 120 marathons (3:16 PR), 55 half marathons (1:26 PR), 11 ultras, and 4 Ironman triathlons (12:34 PR) frequently in the top of her age group or Top Overall women. 


    Nadia graduated with her BS, M.Ed, and Teacher's Credential from UCLA at the age of 20.  Nadia has been a HS Biology educator, coach, and marketing consultant for 10 years.


    Nadia shares her passion of fitness, health, and education with her family and friends in hopes to continue to encourage others to seek their goals, especially young aspiring Latinos who dream of achieving their dreams. 


    Nadia shares, "I will live my life as I choose. I hope to continue to follow where my heart guides me exploring and challenging myself in new terrain as long as I can while encouraging others to do so as well."


    Nadia states, "In order to reach others, I have created some profiles on social media where I share my struggles, triumphs, and challenges throughout my life to demonstrate to others that they may other overcome their struggles to reach their goals."

    #RealTalk :: Carlos Gil Marketing Keynote 2015

    in Business

    Today, marketing is not defined by how many people you reach but by how many people you influence. 


    Marketing is not about print circulars, or online ads, it’s about connecting customers with solutions that meet their needs. 


    Customers are connected, influential, and they expect that you engage with them – it’s not an option anymore. 


    Customers who are informed, and connected to your brand, are more likely to shop with you. Creating loyalty doesn’t happen overnight. It’s a process, which requires listening to what your customers are saying about your brand, and reacting to their sentiment whether it’s good or bad. 


    The challenge for brand marketers today isn’t just how-to keep up with the evolution of the customer but being a storyteller within a media company. 


    Listen to Carlos Gil's passionate keynote on the "State of Digital Marketing 2015", presented on February 20, 2015 at the 54th Annual American Marketing Association Conferene in St. Louis, Missouri.

    Bad sentences beware of Washington Post nonfiction book critic Carlos Lozada

    in Writing

    Woe be unto you writer, should you land in a Washington Post article titled “The five worst sentences I read in January.” When I read that post written by the new nonfiction book critic Carlos Lozada, I knew two things. First, I needed to interview Lozada. Second, I was afraid to write him an email.


    Lozada’s voice engaged me because in addition to rhetorical smarts, he’s pretty funny. Though he’s been at the paper for several years, he began his new role at Book Party in January.  I’m proud to announce the March 22 episode of Behind the Prose will feature an interview with Lozada. In classic Behind the Prose fashion, I’ll learn how he approaches his own writing craft and process and what it’s like to read and write for a living.


    Besides the five worst sentences he read in January, we’ll discuss his Book Party posts including the hilarious book review “Reggie Love on life as Obama’s “chief of stuff” and the ballooning list of journalism cliches forbidden in the The Post’s Sunday Outlook section.


    Oh, and if you do find yourself in one of Lozada’s worst sentences articles,  don’t be upset. He just shames your offending sentence, not your entire book.


    Unless, I suppose, it needed it.


    Carlos Lozada is associate editor and nonfiction book critic at the Washington Post, where he has worked since 2005 in various capacities, including economics editor, national security editor and Outlook editor. Previously, he was managing editor of Foreign Policy magazine and a Knight-Bagehot fellow in economics and business journalism at Columbia University. A native of Lima, Peru, he is a graduate of the University of Notre Dame and Princeton University.

    The Agreements for Life-Secrets to Success with Don Miguel Ruiz

    in Spirituality

    Join us as we Rebroadcast live Wed at 11:00 am PT


    New York Times Best Seller,
    distinguished author of "The Four Agreements and mystic Don Miguel Ruiz. Discover 
    The Four Agreements for Life-Secrets to Success as Don Miguel opens up the vault 
    to the secrets ancients long ago disovered and how you too can tap into truth.


    Don Miguel Ruiz was born into a humble family with ancient traditions in rural Mexico, 
    the youngest of 13 children. He considers himself very lucky, as this was where he learned 
    from an early age that everything is possible, if we really want it.


    His parents, Don Jose and Dona Sarita, as well as his grandfather, Don Leonardo, all 
    believed that Miguel would continue their legacy in the centuries old Toltec tradition. 
    Instead Don Miguel attended medical school, and became a surgeon.
    For several years he practiced medicine with his brothers, and he realized that what 
    needed to be healed was not only the physical brain, but the human mind as well.


    A near fatal car accident changed the direction of Don Miguel’s life. He experienced 
    himself as pure awareness outside of the constraints of his physical body. He realized that 
    the Toltec wisdom of his family contained all of the tools needed to change the human mind. 
    Don Miguel promptly returned to his mother to finish his training and he became a Shaman.


    Don Miguel moved to the United States to share his wisdom, and spent the next 15 years 
    exploring ways to heal and change the human mind. The result of this quest was The 
    Four Agreements®.Join us for an exciting Hour! www.TheBottomLineShowLive.com

    Episode 115: The B-Mets and Squee! Mets!

    in Baseball

    In the "Well, we're here" edition, there is more talk about the 2015 Mets. This podcast has long been concerned with Carlos Gomez, and Jeffrey is interested again. Greg does not entirely understand what consitutes an extreme pro wrestling stipulation, but that can be forgiven we guess. We also stil don't know if the Mets are good, but the attitude towards this season versus "building a sustainable winner" may have to start changing. Oh, and Jeffrey went to Manchester, NH and watched some bad Double-A baseball in the freezing cold. There was good coffee though. We also answer your e-mails and things get a little dark, but they perk up for your weekly IFK Gotenborg update.
