    George Visger
    OUT OF MY HEAD: My Life In and Out of Football



    George Visger, a member of the San Francisco 49ers' first Super Bowl champions in 1981-82, has lived with a shunt in his brain ever since as a result of the many concussions he sustained during his football career. 


    Despite suffering from "water on the brain" and impaired short-term memory, he became a wildlife biologist, a prominent figure in the fight for fair treatment of retired players by the $10-billion-a-year National Football League, and advocate in solutions to the American football concussion crisis at all levels. 


    This is his remarkable story.

    The Total Tutor Neil Haley will interview Daniel Blanchard.


    Dan Blanchard the Award Winning Author, Speaker, Educator two-time Junior Olympian Wrestler, and two-time Junior Olympian Wrestling Coach grew up as a student-athlete. However, Dan admits that as a youth he was more of an athlete than a student.  Dan has now successfully completed fourteen years of college and has earned seven degrees. He teaches Social Studies in Connecticut’s largest inner-city high school. In addition, Dan is a Teacher Consultant for the University of Connecticut’s Writing Project. He was chosen by the American Federation of Teachers as their face and voice of educational reform.  Because Dan’s students repeatedly asked him to write a book  to tell others what he tells them,  Dan finally listened and has now authored two dynamic teen leadership books, Granddaddy’s Secrets: Feeling Lucky? and Granddaddy’s Secrets: Feeling Good. His third book of the Granddaddy’s Secrets series, Feeling Strong! will be out next year. As an educator, coach, author, and speaker Dan feels that it is his duty to positively influence our youth every chance that he gets!

    Award Winning Actor James Wilder

    in Education

    The Total Tutor Neil Haley will interview celebrity James Wilder.


    His film work included such diverse projects as "Scorchers" with icons Faye Dunaway and James Earl Jones, "Flypaper" opposite Lucy Liu, and "Nevada" alongside Angus McFadden and Gabrielle Anwar. He also appeared in (starred) "The Coriolis Effect," which won The Grand Prize (in its category) at the Venice Film Festival. But it was his scorching depiction of serial killer Carl Isaacs in the acclaimed Miramax film "Murder One" that definitively thrust him into the limelight. 

    Wilder was featured in the pages of Vanity Fair alongside Alec Baldwin, Meg Ryan, Robin Wright, and Keifer Sutherland, GQ, Detour, and many other high profile titles. Often disinterested in the mainstream roles coming his way, he began turning his attention to the more provocative world of independent films and his passion for design and architecture.

    Untrained as an architect or interior designer, Wilder's keen eye and distinct vision has transformed a dozen empty lots throughout California into panoramic living art. From gothic to baroque, sleekly modern to vintage chic, each of designs boasts a singularly unique aesthetic, one of which was recognized by HGTV as among LA's top three most outstanding properties alongside a Frank Lloyd Wright design.

    Slowly the homes he built in his exclusive Hollywood Hills neighborhood have evolved into a loosely-structured artist's retreat inspired by Elia Kazan, Wilder's favorite renegade. Annie Leibovitz, Stanley Tucci, Blake Shelton, Tom Ford, Eddie Van Halen, Jesse James, and Stevie Wonder are just a few of the marquee names who have chosen his properties for photo shoots, exclusive events and long-term inspirational living spaces.

    From Whale-like Beached Body, to Beach Ready Beach Body. My Journey.

    in Finance

    I will be 50 years old next year.


    I lost 30 pounds last year and I have another 30 more pounds to go, and I don’t want to wait another year to lose the next 30.


    In my past I was willing to starve, use OTCs, exercise 3 hours per day, etc – ALL the unhealthy stuff, to get an UNSUSTAINABLE outcome. Back then, it was all about how I looked.  Exercise was not a health strategy; exercise was the necessary torture to achieve a swimsuit body. Nutrition was all about calories.  As long as I stayed under 1200, it did not matter if they all came from sugar and french fries.  Any weight I lost was un-sustained. For me, a yo-yo was not a toy.  It was my way of life.  Anyone reading this can relate?


    Last year, I bought a Fitbit, and I did Pastor Rick Warren's The Daniel Plan.  I shared that with you here on Debt-Free Wealth Radio.  However, those efforts and strategies that helped me lose 30 pounds, are now only working to maintain my weight.  I am ready for the FAB dimension.  Such a place exists.  I used to live there.


    That is why I became a Beach Body Coach.  No!  I am not asking you to check out the business opportunity, that is not why I joined.  I was frustrated with the luke-warm gym goers, I could not find others like me who took their progress seriously.  I realized that those who did, were becoming fitness and nutrition coaches - so, I decided to join them.   


    I am responsible for my my life, so I strategically create my environment for success, because you can't trip over success - you need to create it for yourself. Instead of seeing myself as a Beach Body Coach though, I see myself as a Tutor, one student helping another. In helping, I reinforce my skills and confidence moving me to my next level while helping you get yo
