Hour 1: John Baumann
Rejoining Amerika Now during the first hour is inspirational success speaker, author, and “Proud Person with Parkinson’s,” John Baumann, who will be discussing his contributions to a new book entitled The Power of Mentorship – The Art of Living Well.
In the new book, John takes the method and practice he developed in his book, Decide Success, one step farther–focusing on addressing a person’s emotional and spiritual foundation to succeed. John will share this approach tonight as well as this Fall when he’s a featured presenter at the World Parkinson Congress. For a link to the conference: http://www.worldpdcongress.org/?page=RenewalRoom.
In 2002, working as the top attorney for a public company, John was diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease. By 2008, he had to give up the full-time practice of law, a profession that he absolutely loved, due to Parkinson’s. After recommendations, John tried parkinson physiotherapy to try and ease the symptoms. He has since become a living example of how embracing any life-changing event via exercise, healthy living, positive attitude, and a team approach can actually improve one’s quality of life. There are plenty of fantastic physio clinics worldwide such as CK Physiotherapy, so check them out!
The no-nonsense “edicts” John offers for those committed to transforming their lives are valuable to anyone – no matter what their issue or stage of life, and are particularly vital for those facing a health challenge. John helps real people live their lives to the fullest and even embrace their life-changing event with the goal of uncovering their life’s purpose.
Along with writing his own book, Decide Sucess: Twelve Action Steps – You Ain’t Dead Yet, John contributed to Roadmap to Success, along with Dr. Ken Blanchard and Deepak Chopra. His most recent publication is the first chapter of a compilation on The Power of Mentorship: The Art of Living Well.
John M. Baumann, JD, BBA, NSA, is a renowned inspirational success speaker, author, commentator on CNN Headline News, Prime Time, and a teacher at the University of Louisville College of Business. He considers himself a living example of how healthy living and a positive attitude can improve one’s quality of life. In addition, John chairs the Make A Wish Foundation Board of Directors and is a caregiver with his wife to his daughter with cerebral palsy.

Hour 2: Kerry Mitchell
Joining the show during the second hour is doctoral student and Lead Faculty at Regis University (Colorado), Kerry Mitchell, who will be discussing “everything social media.”
Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google Plus, Pinterest, Instagram, Reddit…social media networks were somewhat of a novelty just five years ago. Today, they’re part of most people’s lives. The social web is the modern version of Alice in Wonderland where we’re off chasing multiple rabbits down multiple rabbit holes.
In addition, more than half a billion people spend more than 20 hours per week “wearing” avatars, those digital representations of themselves. But avatars aren’t just for recreation anymore. As more people gain experience with avatars, we can expect them to play even bigger roles in communication. So how will the use of avatars alter our social behaviors and work performance?
Kerry is currently exploring how people build identities using anonymous and nonymous social sites. In May, Kerry traveled to Sweden to work with Media Evolution to hear how they create physical and virtual spaces for collaboration. Next April, she will attend the Greek Dialogue Project by Mediation Beyond Borders International in Athens, Greece, and is part of the team using social media to create energy for the project.
Kerry is Lead Faculty at Regis University in Colorado and teaches courses on communicating with technology and social media. She has also published several articles on the use and impact of social media. Outside of social media, Kerry is a business trainer and coach.

Hour 3: Dr. Dennis Kravetz
Renowned research psychologist and practitioner Dr. Dennis Kravetz (“Dr. K”) joins the show during the final hour to discuss his latest book, A Sound Mind in a Sound Body: Live Long, Live Healthy.
Benjamin Franklin said “Everyone wants to live to be 100, but no one wants to get old.” Well, truth be told, he’s right…people would love to live a long life, but no one wants to be feeble in their twilight years. But did you know that you don’t need to become old—that you can largely determine the length and quality of your life, at least up to a certain point? And this isn’t magical thinking…it’s science!
Dr. Kravetz will present the latest medical research related to longevity and will identify the key factors correlated with long life, disease prevention, and overall health and well-being. While many people might guess that physical activity and nutrition impact how long you live, many are surprised at the other two major factors. So listen in to find out these factors and learn how to live long, live healthy, and live happy to the best of your abilities!
Dennis Kravetz is a psychologist, physical fitness buff, business consultant, and prolific writer whose lifelong passion is to research how to extend the human lifespan. He’s both a practitioner and researcher, and has won three national awards for innovations in the application of psychology, being fascinated by the cognitive and psychological factors that are known to be associated with length and quality of life. As President of Kravetz Associates in Scottsdale, Arizona, he’s worked with roughly half the Fortune 500 companies and is involved with the relationship between health and employee productivity as well as the financial impact when organizations promote healthy living.
