Bio:

“Rob Krecak is a thrill-seeker, self-professed nerd, question asker, voracious reader, competitor, keynote speaker, and business builder.

When he first got his Wall Street job as a sell-side equity analyst out of college, he thought he’d made it. After buying everything he wanted on his wishlist, he realized that he still wasn’t happy. He listened to his deep-down desire to help more people by leaving finance to eventually own three Anytime Fitness health clubs and four uBreakiFix cell phone repair stores.

As someone vulnerable to technology’s addictive hold from a young age—video games and Facebook in particular—Rob is on a mission to help individuals and companies reduce burnout and get back time to master their careers and lives. He founded Humans First to provide a one-of-a-kind coaching experience that analyzes and coaches people’s efficiency and energy by paying attention to their mindfulness with technology.

Rob thinks there is always something to be learned from everyone, and he lets his curiosity guide his conversations. In his spare time, he likes to do CrossFit, better himself through reading, travel, and spend time with his wife Niki.”

  • Anna’s personal story of triumph over trauma

You can also catch soundbites of our insightful interview on YouTube.

Bio:

“At the age of 15, my stepfather started what ended up being six years of systemic sexual abuse, threatening me and my family’s lives if I ever revealed my torturous secret to anyone.

I fell pregnant twice because of his abuse and then was forced into two illegal abortions to hide his heinous crimes.

After escaping his evil clutches when I was 21, his legacy continued to haunt me after experiencing 16 consecutive miscarriages, including two ectopic pregnancies – one that nearly killed me in 2019, as one of the abortions was botched and had damaged my reproductive system.

I spent 20 years of my life living in anger, guilt, shame and fear because I didn’t have the confidence, courage, and self-belief to say what had happened to me as a young girl.

I was a workaholic, a people-pleaser, trying to keep the peace, seeking approval from others, saying YES when I wanted to say NO, afraid to make a mistake, procrastinating and worrying about what others think of me.

On the surface, I looked like I have it all together, but inside I was relentlessly beating myself up for every single mistake and frustrated that life wasn’t going my way.

I wasted a lot of energy and time on narcissistic and toxic relationships, in which I put their needs above, and then resent them for it. I would blame myself for their moods and bad behaviour. I was trying hard to prove myself, to dress better, behave better, and love them more, so I can make them happy.

One of the most powerful things I ever learned was that we can’t control anyone or anything else around us. The only thing in our power to change is ourselves.

I now reclaimed my power, freed myself from the tether of tyranny, shame and anger, and made it my life’s purpose to help others to live the life of their dreams.

Imagine what your life will look like a year from now if you take back control of the power that was stripped away?”

“Tracey Leigh Whittet is a spiritual energy healer, sacred conduit, and intuitive guide located in Santa Fe, NM. Transmosis Healing is a unique, integrated blend of energy modalities that offers people multidimensional body balancing. These sessions clear non-beneficial energies on all levels, layers, timelines, and dimensions. Clients feel better, happier, lighter, and are uplifted by the 100% pure divine light clearing. Clients receive an audio recording of the channeled clearing to support integration and to go even deeper.

Training in many energy healing modalities has revealed a gift that by sharing what I see and hear and describing the energies presented provides deep healing. It seems to be a divine gift to be a messenger for our highest and greatest good.

I am a Certified Spiritual Healer, Multidimensional Body Balancer, Reiki Master, Access Consciousness Bars® and Body Facilitator, Creative Wellness Instructor, a practitioner in Divine Healing Hands, Theta Healing, Yuen Method, Healing Touch, etc. These trainings have evolved and led me to my integrated method that Spirit has termed Transmosis (An unconscious transfer and assimilation of higher energies to raise the recipient’s energy to equal the source energy).”

Bio:

Holistic Physician, Restorative Coach, Podcaster, Psychiatrist Expert Witness at Welcome to Humanity with Dr. Fred Moss

Dr. Fred Moss arrived on Earth on March 1, 1958, and from that very second has been earmarked to be a healer.  The family he was born into was in chaos and, in many ways, was counting on his arrival to bring health and wellness back into balance.  Little Freddy had his hands full, and over the next six decades, he has made it his business to bring healing to the world around him, not only to his family and friends but to the community and world at large.  What a journey it has been.  

Dr. Fred has had a host of life experiences, including, among other things, being a 2-time college dropout and a Northwestern University Medical School graduate (1988).  Over the last four decades, Dr. Fred has been firmly entrenched in the mental health system, first as a child care worker and then as an internationally well-known psychiatrist.  In addition, Dr. Fred has had leadership roles in multiple modalities, including inpatient and outpatient, homeless shelters, nursing homes, orphanages, halfway houses, drug rehabilitation centers, home visits, prisons and jails, and telepsychiatry in many regions of the USA.  

Dr. Fred has been committed to the notion that communication, connection, creativity, and conversation are at the heart of all healing of all conditions of all types.  Without this, people simply do not heal.  With it, miracles regularly occur.  Voices heal.  Listening heals.  We humans are best when we are connected to others, and Dr. Fred’s life mission has now become to assure that all people know that who they are and what they do matters and that their voice, no matter where they are from, or where they are going, can be heard. 

As the founder of the Welcome to Humanity movement, and the True Voice Podcasting Mastermind and methodology, Dr. Fred now finds himself making the difference he came here to make.  His years in the community, where he has been a physician to over 40,000 patients, and his storied and adventurous life traveling around the world, has now left him uniquely qualified to remind us all of what we already know.  Communication is where love arises from, and speaking truth and listening authentically are the source of that love. 

Dr. Fred is married to his dream partner, Alexandra, and lives in the foothills of the Sierra Nevadas in Northern California.  He is the proud father of two beautiful children in Texas and is owned collectively by his three cats, Valentino, Despacito, and Winston.”
