0033: Tara Skubella - Tantra Guide, Naked & Afraid Survivor

Tara Skubella - @stayingaliveuk - podcast.jpeg

After experiencing a profound spiritual awakening that changed my life in every way, I began exploring Tantra and fell in love with the practice.  After immersing myself into Tantra through workshops, literature, practices and a master class, I felt the calling to share Tantra with others.  I also completed a month long teacher's certification course in Thailand, with Tribal Tantra, that completely rocked my world.  

Some people may know me from Naked and Afraid.  I survived 21 days in a Panamanian Jungle living intimately with the earth and sleeping with my bare naked skin touching the jungle soil every night.  This particular experience is the basis for much of my spiritual growth and gifts to share with the world.  

My unique wilderness perspective can also be attributed to many years of teaching outdoor education, outdoor guiding, wilderness therapy, wilderness survival, working with people who've experienced trauma in the social services field and being an Earth Science teacher.  I believe my science background, comfort of naturism, wilderness application and spiritual practices create a practice in entirety.  It is important to first connect with nature and ourselves before we can fully connect with others in a healthy, authentic and intimate way.

I embrace the wild earth, wild femininity and wild passions that roam through my heart body and soul.  

It is my purpose and calling to guide others' to root and bare their souls in order connect with themselves and others in an authentic and more intimate way.

Podcast Promo Release Deb Hawken.001.jpeg

This is going to be an unusual podcast, longer than normal and unusual because we’re talking about the route to happiness amongst other things of course. Hearing about Deb’s journey from the depths of despair to helping others , if they wish to, explore their own journey towards happiness. 

In Deb’s own words:

I am my work, and helping you is my dream; standing beside you is my dream; believing in you and supporting you, that is my dream; seeing you happy, that's my dream of dreams. That and more foreign travel, more cats and dogs (don't tell my husband), chocolate, days out, dancing, plays and shows, writing, and much more.  I have so many reasons to feel inspired and enthusiastic about my life.  That's what I want to offer you.  Plus the inner strength to stand your ground when you need to, and the mind space to be able to create and define your own life.  And peace, always inner peace and smiles….lots of smiles.

Podcast Promo Release.001.jpeg

Carmen Capuano was born in 1966, in Govan, Glasgow and is of Italian and Spanish descent. She left her native Scotland at the age of eighteen to seek her fortune in London. A full and varied career saw her tread the boards as a musical theatre performer, before undertaking such diverse jobs as a primary school teacher and veterinary assistant in Birmingham. She now lives in the small Worcestershire town of Bromsgrove. Interested in writing from an early age, it was only when she had her own children that she found her enthusiasm for story telling had not waned in any way and was still as alive and enticing as ever. "For me, writing is as essential to the soul as breathing is to the body."

The author lives in a big Californian mansion overlooking the sea, where she rides one of her seven horses on the sand every day, and her butler brings her Pina Coladas to sip… is that what you expected to hear? Ok, so back to reality then.

The author lives in Bromsgrove, a small town in the English Midlands. Originally from Glasgow, she came to England in the expectation of a better climate and less hills. Now 45 and with three young children in tow, she is forced to keep a sense of humour about life.

0008: AJ Wilcox - Online Marketer and Ads Specialist

AJ loves the concept of being present when customers are at the bottom of the funnel, and who are ready to make a purchase.

He has been an online marketer since 2007 and he’s managed hundreds of Google AdWords campaigns. He’s always been fascinated by the lead quality from intent-based targeting. 

He was introduced to advertising on LinkedIn in 2014. He figured that it likely wasn’t a good platform because he hadn’t heard of it before then. As he continued to dive deeper into LinkedIn, he began to see the value that he felt the industry had not picked up on. He then founded B2Linked in an effort to spread the success he was experiencing through LinkedIn advertising to other companies.

He’s extremely active in the online marketing community. He’s a LinkedIn Certified Ads Partner, he manages the official LinkedIn Ads group forum, and he’s a board member of SLC | SEM among other things. He’s an exotic car nut and a triathlete. I lives in Utah with his wife and 4 kids.
