“Rely on community … You will be surprised at what happens when we elevate ourselves from this individualistic society and culture we've been raised into, a level of community and collective growth that we can truly provide in a measurable amount of value to ourselves and to others.”

 

You’re in for another special treat with our today’s guest, Wolf Castillo, formerly, Jarrod Castillo. He is a Life Skills and Mindset Coach, Mentor and Speaker for youth success and empowerment. As his tag line, “follow the wolf”, suggests, youths are at the age where they need guidance, someone to follow and help them make the right decisions.

 

In this society’s standards, Wolf had every reason to boast as a youth. He excelled in school, athletics and his jobs; but something was missing. Behind all his successes was a depressed young man. Learn how he managed to get past his troublesome seasons and how he can help you and your teens become prepared for their future.

 

Almost every household has a teenager. And often, they are the most critical and challenging kids to handle. Listen in as Kim and Wolf shares some parenting tips and wisdom on how to raise a happy and healthy adolescent.

David Tomen was on top of his game when he was diagnosed with Adult ADD and PTSD. Although he was good at the things he does, he was always in trouble because of being “out of focus.” With research and perseverance, he found the answer to his problem. The effect on him was so profound that he authored NootropicsExpert  to help others find the light in their minds.
