009: Funeral Director Talk and Tips

June 1, 2020

Welcome to The On Purpose Podcast with Lynn Thompson.

The length of this show is 1:07:07 because why interrupt the flow of a great conversation? It is packed with so much information and insight from a long time, very personable Funeral Director, Cam Skipper of Gilchrist Chapel in Guelph, Ontario, Canada.

Cam was born in Guelph where he grew up and has lived most of his life. His father owned a funeral home and their family lived in the apartment above it. That is how he became interested in funeral service. Cam attended Humber College in Toronto for the Funeral Service Program and received his Funeral Directors License in 1981. After working at a funeral home in Kitchener for five years, Cam returned to his home town in 1985 to work at Gilchrist Chapel. He feels lucky to have a career that does not seem like work and he has met many incredible people in those years. He married Barb in 1989 and they have two grown sons.

007: Zander Phelps, Fool of Play

May 2, 2020

Welcome to The On Purpose Podcast with your host, Lynn Thompson. Time: 15:18 minutes.

Zander Phelps - Ambassador of Play is also known as the Fool of Play, and whoever this wildly playful guy really is, he is continually reminding us of the importance of non-competitive group play with "hack" and the brain benefits of learning to juggle, and even juggle-walking! Your ticket to the "Play Flow State." Lynn met Zander in January 2018 on the path when they were both on the Garden Island of Kauai. This shorter version of their conversation by phone in April 2020 has a weave of music through segments of the full 28-minute talk that is featured on Living on Purpose on WomensRadio.

Check out Zander's Hackido website and YouTube channel.

005: The Climb Back from Cancer Survivorship Program, founder: Alan Hobson

April 28, 2020

Welcome to The On Purpose Podcast with your host, Lynn Thompson. Time: 47:07 minutes.

Lynn's guest, Alan Hobson, is familiar with adversity, bouncing back from setbacks, and facing fear. Lynn is proud to say that her long-time friend is the tenth Canadian to summit the world's tallest peak, Mt. Everest. Three years following that incredible accomplishment, Alan was diagnosed with the very aggressive blood cancer, acute leukemia, and given less than a year to live. Through a long, intensive journey of treatment, today he is one of less than a few dozen people in the world ever to regain an elite level of fitness after an adult blood stem cell transplant for the treatment of leukemia. 

Alan has been a guest on Oprah and has written seven books. He has created, with philanthropic effort, the world's first program for those newly diagnosed with cancer, called The Climb Back from Cancer Survivorship Program. The program is available through SurviveCANcer.ca

The 26-minute version of Lynn's conversation with Alan Hobson is featured on Living on Purpose on WomensRadio.
