MEET OUR GUESTS:
- Brad Neufeld is the Founder and CEO of the Resilience Talk Network and Co-Host of the “Don’t Count Me Out” Podcast, a podcast for Stroke Survivors. Brad has more than 30 years of experience working in the mental health industry as a mentor. Back in December of 2008, Brad was diagnosed with a Brain Abscess and has experienced a total of 7 TIA’s, which are transient ischemic attacks or “Mini Strokes”. His passion is assisting others with overcoming the challenges of life.
- Jo Ann Glim is an author, podcaster, motivational speaker, and stoke survivor. Jo Ann Glim was born in Chicago, Illinois to a military family and raised in Anacortes, Washington in the far reaches of the Pacific Northwest. It was an ideal place to raise a precocious child, especially one that’s inquisitive and daring. Tragically, her mother passed away from a stroke when Glim was fourteen. This was the beginning of a life-path plotted with many dark events. In her own words, “Instead of consuming me, they made me stronger, and I’m here to tell you, darkness can be replaced with light.” Glim’s three-pronged career of broadcast and print media, freelance writing, and business management formed her into the indie author she is today. Her 5-Star books, the award-winning “Begotten With Love,” and her newest release “Trapped Within,” are both non-fiction, life-stories filled with challenges, hope, and humor. Glim now lives in Florida with her husband Bill and their Scottish terrier, Lucy. Her passions are writing, photography, travel, handbells, and hiking. A paralyzing stroke nearly twenty-four years ago left her most of all, grateful for life itself!
