Ep. 15 – Dr. Adam Hedaya, pain management specialist

Dr. Adam Hedaya is a medical doctor who specializes in pain management.  He is the founder of Cleveland Pain Care, a practice that provides treatment and services to people who experience chronic pain.

In this episode, we talk about the various pain treatment services that Adam’s practice provides.  We dive into a discussion on opioid addiction and the alternative solutions that Adam offers his patients.  We also rap about stem cell therapy, parenthood, exercise and various random everyday life topics.  We end with a discussion about the importance of self, internal happiness and hear about Cleveland Pain Care’s continued growth trajectory.

Ep. 11 Recap – Kelli Carson

Beautiful, smart, compassionate, insightful :: just a few of many adjectives that can be used to describe Kelli Carson.  A woman who always knew creating a career for herself would be important, Kelli was able to marry that entrepreneurial drive with her immense passion for helping people.  And these are not just any people.  These are people struck by severe diseases/disabilities such as autism.  People who are “non-verbal” and do not have the ability to care for themselves.

As All Hearts Home Health Care approaches its 13th anniversary, I was honored to have Kelli on the show to discuss her professional path.  It is extremely impressive to see her now employing approximately 100 people who care for anywhere between 50-60 clients throughout various counties in Northern Ohio.  As her reach continues to spread and her company continues to grow, we will undoubtedly see Kelli having an even greater impact throughout our community.  Her pending children’s facility – due to open May of this year – is just one example of likely many more to come.

What I really love about sitting down with my guests is the ability to pick their brains and find out what makes them tick.  Each person has a unique perspective of the world and they all bring their own flare to the game.  While Kelli’s passion remains in health care, she is always on the look out for new business ventures outside of the medical industry.  It is that type of entrepreneurial spirit that keeps the wheels of our economy in motion.  And while the future is unquestionably bright for Kelli, the future for her clients and patients remains even brighter so long as she and her company(ies) are involved.

Ep. 11 – Kelli Carson, home health care owner and entrepreneur

Kelli Carson is the founder of All Hearts Home Health Care, a home health care service provider to people with mental and physical disabilities.

In this episode, we hear about how Kelli’s entrepreneurial journey began at the ripe age of ten.  We hear about her path from sales to real estate, and how she knew she needed more emotional fulfillment from her career.  We hear about how she ultimately found that fulfillment by combining her passion for helping people with her passion for growing a business.  We get insight into the emotional tolls that the home health care industry can take on the providers and hear about some of the challenges these remarkable people face every day.  We end with a discussion on Kelli’s plans for the future, her love for her clients and employees, and other business ventures that are of interest to her.

So you think you can dance?  Then listen to Ep. 4 of The Optimal Life Podcast with Megan Kohler.  Megan went from high school cheerleader to college cheerleader to college dancer to NBA dancer.  A lifelong Clevelander, she knows what it takes to make it at the professional dance level.  She also knows what it takes to stay in shape so that an optimized body translates to an optimized mind.  5 A.M. workouts are not just a novelty – they are part of her everyday routine.

I want to thank Megan again for coming on the show.  She peeled back the curtain to life as an NBA dancer :: providing insight into its intense tryout process, practice schedule, and the mental focus required to handle “audibles” during live NBA games.  She also had a cool story about LeBron and Kobe.

Ep. 2 Recap – Alissa Kolarik

So you think you can’t pick up running “late” in life?  Think again.  My conversation with Alissa really blew me away.  She is an outlier in the running community; never having run a single mile until in her late twenties after getting married, having two kids and taking on a full time digital marketing career!  Fast forward two-and-one-half years later and she completed her first marathon (NYC) in November 2017 in 3:23:13.  Sick!

Alissa’s story is one that proves that hard work, dedication and a “can do” mentality will allow you to accomplish whatever it is you set your mind to.  Have to be at work at 8:00 AM?  Then you get yourself to the gym at 4:00 AM.  Have kids to take care of?  Then you get yourself to the gym at 4:00 AM.  Have a husband (or wife) to spend time with?  Then you get yourself to the gym at 4:00 AM.  Have major surgeries that require you to be out of running for months on end?  Then you get your yourself to consistent rehab and force your will on your medical team to ensure that you are back at it as soon as humanly possible.  These are the types of sacrifices and actions required if you want to be elite.

Thanks again to Alissa for shedding light on her running journey and showing all of us that we, too, can achieve these miraculous feats if we simply dedicate ourselves to an ultimate goal.  I really look forward to seeing what Alissa does in 2018 and beyond (Olympics anyone?).

Ep. 2 – Alissa Kolarik, runner who began elite running journey at 30

Alissa Kolarik is a 31-year old wife, mom and business woman who has become an elite runner in just 2-1/2 years after starting her running journey.

In this episode, we talk about Alissa’s incredible ascent to the top of the running world.  We discuss the type of workouts and dedication required to become elite, and the mindset that is needed to achieve success.  If you have excuses of why you can’t become a runner (i.e. work, school, family obligations, injuries, etc), I suggest you turn up the volume and listen to Alissa’s extraordinary story of why you can.
