Figure skating is notoriously rife with drama and intrigue. Since its introduction to the Winter Olympics in 1924, figure skating has been one of the most popular, yet controversial competitions.
For the first time in the 106 years since the sport was introduced, figure skating will be a team event at the Sochi Games. In addition to their individual events, athletes from 10 countries will compete against each other as a squad, combining their efforts for a shot at a group medal in addition to individual crowns.
As Olympic events go, this one has the intrigue and secrecy of a Cold War spy novel. Countries have been guarding their playbooks like their national secrets for good reason.
Most recently Amanda won Battle of the Blades with retired NHLer and skating partner Scott Thornton.Amanda joins us to chat about her path to the Olympics and what it means to compete and sacrifice to get to the the top level of amateur sport in the world of figure skating.

Everyone loves figure skating!
“Every winter, millions of Canadians take to the ice, indoors and outdoors, in search of fun and fitness," says Skate Canada, the governing body for the national sport.
In our country, you'll see many figure skating events on television throughout the year - Skate Canada, Canadian championships, world championships, and more. Canadians Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir stole the limelight at the Vancouver Winter Olympics in 2010 and Canada’s strength as a figure skating nation is a proven result of not only this type of exceptional talent.
A group of skaters and coaches who have been willing to take risks and be part of the continuous re-definition of the sport continue to extend our expectation of what is possible.
Join the conversation as we pull back the curtain on The Inside Edge of Figure Skating with Elvis Stojko and PJ Kwong, CBC Figure Skating Correspondent and author of “Taking The Ice”.
• Is the figure skating world in Canada thriving?
• Will be able to maintain our highest level of world class competitors?
• Internal rivalry, between skaters, has gained bad press for the sport.
• Has controversial judging tainted competition?
• Will the respect for the sport ever return?

Step aside and take a moment to recollect yourself. This can be literal, if it was a short-term plan (such as where you're going to eat that evening), or metaphorical if it was a long-term plan (such as what path you're following in life). Either way, it can be upsetting when things aren't going as you planned, so call time-out in order to calm down and regain your sense of direction.
Consider why things didn't go according to plan. The best way to formulate a better plan is to figure out why the first one didn't work out in the first place. Compare how things went with how things were expected to go, and ask yourself how that happened and how you can prevent that from happening in the future.
Assemble a new plan with these things in mind. Okay, so things didn't go according to plan. Now it's time to take the information you've gathered and formulate a new plan. Where can you go from here, how can you get to where you're going? Make sure you account for things that went wrong with the former plan, so you can be better prepared to deal with road bumps in the future.

Join us as we discuss the nature of Thriving on our beautiful planet. Humanity is waking up. Foster Gamble is our guest.
FOSTER GAMBLE – President & Co-Founder of Clear Compass Media; Creator, Host, Co-Writer, & Director of Visual Design for THRIVE
At age 14, Foster Gamble had a vision where he glimpsed what he perceived to be the Universe’s fundamental energy pattern. He spent the next 35 years trying to figure out the details and implications of what he had seen. That quest took two paths: a scientific journey and an exploration of the human potential to navigate successfully through the challenges threatening our survival. THRIVE represents the convergence of these two paths.
Combining his quest with that of his producer/journalist wife, (including for Newsweek International), Kimberly Carter Gamble, the two created THRIVE, What on Earth Will it Take – http://www.thrivemovement.com/the_movie. THRIVE is an unconventional documentary that lifts the veil on what's REALLY going on in our world by following the money upstream -- uncovering the global consolidation of power in nearly every aspect of our lives. Weaving together breakthroughs in science, consciousness and activism, THRIVE offers real solutions, empowering us with unprecedented and bold strategies for real and lasting transformation.
You'll get the answer to the question, "Is it wise to change careers at the height of your success?" with the pioneer in the self-help movement, Debra Poneman. Debra founded Yes to Success Seminars in the 1980’s to share knowledge and tools to help people live lives of true success, abundance and happiness.
Without the help of the Internet, in just a few short years her programs were being taught in cities across the US, seven countries internationally and at numerous Fortune 500 companies.
Although over 30 years ago, Debra’s premise that success is created by the power of the mind was considered radical, her students went on to become mega-successful entrepreneurs, NY Times bestselling authors, millionaires, billionaires, and even household names…while others gave up 6 figure incomes, when they connected with the deepest truths inside their hearts.
Now a bestselling author, award-winning speaker, and co-founder of Your Year of Miracles mentoring program, Debra continues to revolutionize the way people create success as she develops new, cutting edge knowledge so that you can not only live a life you truly love but one that is, in fact, miraculous.
hey this is step 3 of #faith from your #journalstrategist
Faith is based on where u are going and if your clear about the picture you see
Faith is not something you just put on your shelf and leave it there it's something you continually usebona day to day basis
Faith leads to desire then once you figure that out you have the skills
Faith is this your success or is it your defeat?
This is step three after your mind is right and your clear next is touching your faith even though it's unseen and when it's unreal
BUSINESS IS PURPOSE; THAT HAS PRINCIPLES; THAT'S BASED ON A PROCESS; PROCEDURE THAT DEVELOPS A PRODUCT THAT LEADS TO
A PROFIT; THAT RESULTS IN PEACE.
But the process is more important than the purpose.
Mention the word process to any launch team, and you are likely to hear: “Who needs processes? Don’t we have enough to deal with already with trying to get this product out the door, and now we have to create and follow some convoluted, bureaucratic process? By the time we do all of that paperwork to figure out the process and follow the process, the launch could be done!”
Whether you are part of a large launch team or a lonely entrepreneur launching your first product, having a simple process will, believe it or not, save you time and sanity in the long run. By its nature, launching is chaotic. Often, people don’t know where to start. Do I do market research first? When do I write marketing materials? Do I wait until the product completes the final testing? It seems as if everything happens at once.
In the "I hereby declare this day to be Snow Day, the funnest day in the history of the podcast" edition. Jeffrey had an idea to try out Blog Talk's live studio feature while he is snowed in his apartment. So we'll talk Mets baseball and the usual other stuff assuming he can figure out how this works.

Minette Riordan is here to tell us! She’s going to share:
Why only 6% of women ever reach 6-figures
What is a “creative” entrepreneur
What are the three massive mistakes that creative entrepreneurs are making in their business
