    Walk Your Talk With LeAnne and Peter Shankman!

    in Self Help

    LeAnne Parsons The Walk Your Talk Coach is honored to welcome Peter Shankman to her show this week! 

    Peter Shankman doesn't know how to sit still, and he blames that on his ADHD. But he blames his ADHD for all of his success. A three-time startup entrepreneur with the same number of successful exits under his belt, Peter believes that to be the best, you simply have to be better than everyone's expectations, and in the world of customer experience, that's not hard to do.

    Peter is perhaps best known for founding Help a Reporter Out, (HARO,) which changed how journalists gather news and how public relations is done. He's the author of four books, two of which are bestsellers, including his latest, "Zombie Loyalists: Using Great Service to Create Rabid Fans." A born and raised NYC public school kid, he still resides in Manhattan with a wife 2-year-old child, and 15-year-old cat, and when he's not flying around the world giving speeches, or competing in Ironman Triathlons, he's jumping out of planes, as a licensed skydiver with over 500 jumps.

    LEANNE a CPC, ELI-MP with a special gift working with adoptees and their families! Her unique Coaching Process is the missing thread in the Tapestry of Adoption! We weave your story together and create a new family legacy of love for generations to come. LeAnne is CEO and Founder of The Tapestry of Adoption and The Walk Your Talk Coach at Legacy Now Lived. LeAnne is empowering the adoption community to connect and embrace their stories and improve their relationships!

    As a Coach, Re-united Adoptee, Mom, Warrior Wife, Personal Stylist, Educator, Servant Leader, Radio Host, Speaker and “New Nester” she encourages individuality, integrity, confidence, & the desire to live a life of freedom & impact. She is changing lives one conversation at a time.

    Chase, Kloetzke. VP of E.P.I.C

    in Paranormal

    In the spring of 2010, Chase Kloetzke embarked on a mission into the UFO/Paranormal world that reverberated throughout the industry and resulted in her being one of the most sought after investigators in the field. This “Close Encounter of the Third Kind” that transpired on a quiet evening during the Tennessee 1000-year floods hit the information superhighway blogospheres like a storm and placed every truth seeker on bated breath. It was an audacious moment for a UFO/Paranormal investigator determined to take the boots on the ground. For Chase, however, her most intrepid journey is yet to come, all while “taking corners on two wheels”. As an avid skydiver and rappeller, cheerleader/gymnast, certified EMT, SAR (Search and Rescue) Unit volunteer, martial artist and instructor, military activist and veterans care volunteer, private investigator, and radio broadcaster, Chase’s prodigious background personifies one’s capacity to harness the most specialized skills and employ the greatest sensibility in humanitarian efforts. Her credentials includes a Master/Trainer Instructor title in Biomechanics Engineering from Cooper’s Institute in Dallas, Tex; licensed Private Investigator through the Waldron Corporation; Program Specialist for the Department of Defense (D.O.D); former MUFON Star Team Manager, Deputy of Director of Investigations, and Certified Field Investigator (1996-2011); and has made several appearances on radio and television broadcast. Chase is presently the Director of Investigations for E.P.I.C. (Extraordinary Phenomena Investigation Council) headquartered in Texas (chartered to collect and present data in the UFO/Cryptid and Paranormal field) and is also a reoccurring guest-host on EPIC Voyages Radio airing Monday evenings on Inception Radio Network
