Always Pay It Forward (ft. Caroline Tetschner)
CAROLINE TETSCHER “If folks want to contribute to a charity of my choosing, we could definitely use any and all donations at our American Legion Post 37 in Norfolk, VA (but do not contribute to national, we won't see the money). We are an all-volunteer organization that helps both veterans and the public including a monthly major food distribution that generally attracts 60+ families. Below is our Website, and when they scroll down there's a DONATE NOW button, which will go directly to our chapter. Greatly helps local veterans and veteran services, along with citizens in need. THANK YOU!” https://legionpost37va.org Reflections is a video podcast, simultaneously broadcast on YouTube, Spotify, Apple Podcasts, and many other outlets.  Each episode showcases a storyteller who shares tales from their own lives.  Life changing struggles and obstacles, and how they pushed through to the other side.

EVERYONE is on a SPECTRUM (ft. Andy Parker)
ANDY PARKER For over 20 years I have built a career in technology and Digital design. I’ve worked in some of the world’s best design agencies and was a senior member of the British Government’s Government Digital Service. Navigating a career in the fast-pace of the web did not come easy. Self taught, I flunked out of school, lied my way into college and got fired from quite a few jobs. It wasn’t until I was in my late 30s that I was diagnosed with Autism. This is where my journey into becoming a coach began. My passion for music, and art not only guided me to a career in digital design, it influences everything I do. I’m a grassroots champion, I love supporting people that take the DIY ethos of the punk movement, and build the things they want to see and invite everyone along for the ride. https://theuxcoach.com Reflections is a video podcast, simultaneously broadcast on YouTube, Spotify, Apple Podcasts, and many other outlets.  Each episode showcases a storyteller who shares tales from their own lives.  Life changing struggles and obstacles, and how they pushed through to the other side.

SCARY TALES of SURVIVAL (Reflections ep.1)
AUTUMN CAROLYNN Autumn shares her story of a cancer scare at a young age which led to a realization of how her life should ever move forward. Traveling in Wonder: A Travel Photographer's Tales of Wanderlust is an author’s extended letter to the many countries she's visited, first as a student traveling abroad, then as a flight attendant, a travel agent, and more recently, a travel photographer. Traveling in Wonder is a former flight attendant’s reflections on the 30 countries she traveled to or lived in within 30 years. Traveling in Wonder is also a love letter to self, and the courage it takes to get on a plane and go, but also in choosing not to run away from your problems in the present, and equally, letting ordinary days teach you more about yourself. Traveling in Wonder is going to be released on February 24th, 2024. Autumn Carolynn received her bachelor's degree in English with an emphasis in creative writing from Illinois State University and Canterbury Christ Church University. She is a published author with Spoon River Poetry Review and has worked as an on-air DJ for two radio stations. Autumn produced a creative writing segment aired on WGLT, an NPR station, which introduced writers from all over the Midwest and allowed them to share their work on air. She is an award-winning travel photographer who owns her business, Autumn Carolynn Photography. One can find her work across multiple galleries, including the Northrup King Building, one of the largest art complexes in the United States.

SHARE YOUR STORY!

SHARE YOUR STORY!
We're looking for people to publicly bare their souls … and you seem like just the person we need! 🙂 Hi, my name is Rick Higgins … did I get your attention? LOL! I run a YouTube channel called The Pirate Wanderer. We have a podcast within the channel (and also on Spotify, Apple, all the usual places) called "Reflections". Similar to The Moth from NPR, each episode showcases three storytellers who share personal tales from their own lives. Successes, failures, lessons learned. Travel, humor, and real life. Whatever story the teller wants to share. And I'd like to feature YOU as a storyteller! Here are the details … I need a 5-10 minute personal story about something that happened in your life that led to a change. Something that inspired you or helped you to grow. You can either film yourself (don't worry, I'll tell you how) or we can hop on a video call and I'll step you through it. Yes, it's a podcast but it's also a video. Spotify and YouTube allow for video podcasts. And if you have a personal brand or a charity that you wish to tag with your story, that will be included in both the description and in the introduction. The idea is to both entertain and inspire others with stories from our own lives. It's the basis for The Pirate Wanderer and we're also extending that to allow others to be inspirational as well. If you'd like to participate or want more information, either email me at rick@rickhiggins.com or drop me a DM.
