The theme this week is Limitless Potential. The show kicks off with Champion paratriathlete Patricia Walsh who was left sightless at the age of 14 due to lingering complications from surgery for a pediatric brain tumor, Walsh could easily have resigned herself to a life of dependence on others. Instead, she fought back with a fierce resolve to not only prove that she was the equal of sighted people, but in some respects superior.
Patricia Walsh's story if one of grit, personal accountability, granite willpower, and a determination to buck overwhelming odds. Walsh's achievements at the age of 33 are greater than most people could expect in a lifetime: a successful career as a software engineer, entrepreneur and above all, champion athlete.
She has completed 11 full-length marathons, qualified for the Boston Marathon multiple times, as well as completed 2 full-length Iron Man competitions, crushing the record for low vision/blind males and females. For the past four years Walsh won the Para-athlete National Championship for triathlon.
In facing up to these daunting tasks, Walsh had to overcome physical as well as emotional challenges, especially the naysayers who at every step of the way confronted her with the "reasons" she would not be able to succeed.
Deanne DeMarco says, "I will be asking Patricia about the universal truths and lessons she's learned in goal achievement that will help our listeners." Deanne continued. " I will also ask Patricia about how to deal effectively with the naysayers. I am amazed with Patricia's accomplishments. To complete a degree in electrical engineering is tough. When you add being blind on top of that, Patricia must have some wonderful advice. I am very excited to ask Patricia about her goal achievement strategy. "
The special guest for the second half of Deanne's show is former U.S Navy pilot and business executive, Kamin Samuel. Kamin started her career as the first female African-American Helicopter pilot for the U.S. Navy. She transitioned to having several small businesses and then to an entry-level web developer position at a computer electronic company. Kamin moved up quickly working for several corporations, even serving as a Vice President of Global Website Operations at a billion dollar company
Deanne will seek Kamin's advice for building a personal brand and the importance of self-promotion in the workplace. She asks Kamin for specific strategies on how to expand your business and career. Deanne DeMarco said, "with Kamin's experience in the Navy and as a VP she knows how to self-promote correctly, how to network effectively, and how to show strong leadership capabilities in meetings. I will also be interested in her advice on some strategies that women can use."
Deanne DeMarco, who has 20 successful years as a business conflict mediator and consultant in building cohesive workplace teams and keynote speaker (http://www.DeanneDemarco.com) , said, "Each week I interview extraordinary and inspiring women who may not be household names but are business and entrepreneurial rising stars. For this show I'm delighted to have two businesswomen who have demonstrated "Limitless Potential and Amazing Success" share time with me and my audience."
