Ep. 14 Living An Extraordinary Life with Terry Tucker

Season 1, Ep. 14

This episode is about living an uncommon and an extraordinary life with Terry Tucker. Maybe you can relate to this? Have you ever asked yourself if there is more to life than this? Have you ever wondered what your purpose in life is? And maybe even more importantly, have you ever thought, I can’t handle much more? If you have pondered these questions, and even if you haven’t, you should listen to the experiences that Terry has encountered, and the knowledge and wisdom he has to share. Terry is not only living an uncommon and extraordinary life, but he is doing it even though he has been battling cancer for the last 10 years and still is by the way. He has some advice and wisdom for all of us, that I personally feel we should all try to pay attention to and learn from.

You’ll hear him say during the podcast that he doesn’t have a big red S painted on his chest, but I think he secretly may. I have never met someone who is going through so much, and enduring so much pain, and yet, he still wants to help others daily. What an aspirational human being he is!

  • 43. Ep. 43 The Power of Communication with Dr. Heather Browne

    *This episode has some sexually explicit content and is not intended for children to listen to.* For this episode, I am very excited to welcome Dr. Heather Browne to the show. Dr. Browne is a widow who grew up with a paranoid schizophrenic mother who ended up taking her own life while Dr. Browne was still very young. She was able to learn from her mom that none of us share the same reality even though we believe we do. This has allowed her to transform communication within self and within all other types of relationships. She feels this is the key to acceptance. Dr. Browne has a doctorate in psychology and is an active psychotherapist for couples. She is published in hundreds of journals. She has been featured on TV and published in many magazines as well. She has two books in the final stages of pre-publication and she just did her first Ted Talk on September 23rd of this year. Connect with Sam Mitchell:Website Let's Connect!Facebook: The Beauty in the Mess podcast InstagramWebsite

  • 37. Ep. 37 Achieving Fitzness with Fitz Koehler

    I am excited to welcome Fitz Koehler to The Beauty In the Mess. Fitz is on a mission to help people become fit before they hear a horrible diagnosis or something bad happens. She speaks about the 4 pillars of fitness, proficiency, strength, cardiovascular fitness, flexibility and balance that people need to become truly fit as well as many other topics. As Fitz says, if you can’t do five pushups, but you can run a marathon, that doesn’t mean you are fit. Fitness not only affects your body, but your brain as well so it is extremely important. Join us as we talk about all things fitness. In her own words, Fitz is noisy, bossy, and compelling. In 2019, she was diagnosed with breast cancer, and her healthy and athletic body was brutalized by 15 months of chemotherapy, radiation, and surgeries. Instead of slowing down, she turned up the volume on her career. As a cancer crusher, she written books called my Noisy Cancer Comeback, Your Healthy Cancer Comeback: Sick to Strong, and a Healthy Cancer Comeback Journal. Fitz is a busy keynote speaker, a professional race announcer, and, of course, a prominent fitness expert. Her company, Fitzness International, that she created from her passion to help others become fit, has a global reach, and she’s conquered every avenue of mass media to help people live better and longer. She has a master’s degree in Exercise and Sport Sciences and decades of experience teaching fitness worldwide. She also has a popular podcast called the Fitzness Show, among many other things. In her free time, Fitz enjoys water sports, strength training, obstacle course races, animals, hugs, sarcasm, getting muddy in her Jeep Wrangler, and traveling. She lives in Gainesville, Florida. Connect with Fitz Koehler:FacebookLinkedInInstagramInstagram (2)WebsiteTikTokYouTubeBlog Let's Connect!Facebook: The Beauty in the Mess podcast InstagramWebsite
