For our first part of our series, we will address the serious state of truck driver health, including the illnesses drivers face, the choices they have made in the past and the viable decisions they are now making: Real life solutions for a better quality of life.
Our speical guests are three professional truck drivers who will share their testimonials and explain how they have changed their lives and also how they are mentoring and encouraging other drivers to change theirs as well. Their continual research for better health has created a wealth of knowledge among them which they will share as we kick off our first part of our Truck Driver Health series.
Donna will also share some of her insight she has learned and applied on living a healthier lifestyle, once finally diagnosed with Crohn's Disease.
Our special driver guests include: Mike Adams of Truckin Fitness, Tom Kyrk of Trucking Solutions Group and Road Tested Living and Rich Chelson of Essante Organics.

Professional CMV drivers were earning more money in 1980 than they are today and they have seen truck driver wages fall by 40% during the past 33 years.
With no adjustment for inflation or other such economic factors, and by figuring in total number of hours worked per week, the majority of drivers end up earning an hourly wage that is far below the minimum wage.
Jeff Barker is an 18 year OTR veteran with over two million miles. A former heavy truck and transport refrigeration mechanic and truck owner-operator, he began writing for Land Line Magazine in 2005 and is founder of the Ride and Roll Program, a driver health and wellness plan.
Joining us as our guest, Jeff will discuss the post 1980 deregulation effects, the public image of the American trucker, why truck driver pay has not significantly increased over the past three decades and what he sees as the root causes and solutions to these problems.

Topic: The Female Truck Driver Trainer Shortage: Tyson Foods Calls For Female Truck Driver Trainers
Guests: Tyson Foods Human Resource Manager , Regina McConnell and Driver/Recruiter , Michelle Higgins.
Tyson Foods Private Fleet has largely gone unknown as a truck driver training carrier. As more women are encouraged to enter trucking without any clear path to success, Tyson Foods has begun an approach that calls out to experienced female drivers that would consider becoming trainers for qualified female candidates.
Join us as we discuss the female truck driver trainer shortage, the issues that occur for women during training and the solutions we can achieve when women work together.
With the shortage of safe and secure parking for our nation's truck drivers back in the news, join us as we discuss the dangers drivers face every day because of the lack of safe truck parking availability.
Who is responsible for putting drivers at added risk? Where are the most difficult areas to find truck parking? How are regulations adding to the already dangerous parking situations? Who doesn't want to see more available truck parking?
Our guests include Hope Rivenburg of Jason's Law, Desiree Wood of Real Women in Trucking and our special guests, Ashley Boeglin and David Clark, wife and father-in-law of Michael Boeglin.
We will also review some startling results of the 2013 National Truck Parking Survey led by Hope and the detailed data analysis performed by Ms. Wood.

Maya Angelou, Barbara Walters, John F. Kennedy, Martin Luther King. History Makers? Yes! Inspirations? Absolutely! But last time I checked, I can't call any of these people up to ask, "Should I take that job offer?" or "Do you think I'm ready to start my own business?" or "Do you think investing in that company is a good move for me?"
Angelou, Walters, Kennedy and King, were and are all great INSPIRATIONS. BUT, we don't personally know and didn't personally know any of them. They are or were dream people you hope to meet, wished you could have met or hope to be like.
So when the tough life questions come up and you're unsure of your next move, who do you turn to for guidance. Who's the person you bounce your aspirations and far reaching dreams to? Who is your go-to person? For some, its our parents. After all, who knows you better than them? Or who you can trust more? But, what about professionally or spiritually, when your parents just can't help. Who then?
Well, what about a personal mentor? Someone who can guide and advise you in your career and even in your personal life. Yeah, that sounds good. But do I really need a mentor? I'm smart enough to figure things out. And how do I even get one? I can't advertise on Craigslist for that? Or do a google search? Can I?
This Saturday June 28, 2014 2 7:30pm EST, REAL TALK LIVE 216, is putting the topic of mentoring on the floor and having the discussion. REAL TALK LIVE 216 presents,"PAY IT FORWARD: THE POWER & THE GIFT OF MENTORING
