Meighan Julbert, MS joins Dr. Bhrett McCabe to discuss new starts. Many look at a new year as a fresh start and a chance to close the door on the past. But is that the answer? Should we leave those doors cracked to learn from the past and use that to build a successful future? Julbert and McCabe discuss that in today’s podcast.
In 2001, Steve Ehretsman was walking into a fast-food establishment when he was crushed between two cars. After 13 surgeries, doctors decided to amputate his leg below the knee.
Ehretsman is a former D1 athlete where he was captain of the Boston University basketball team. This was not according to plan. Up until the accident, Steve was a high producing and quickly emerging leader in the business development scene. Immediately following the accident, he struggled with adjusting to life and that struggle sparked his next step – to found Shamrock Prosthetics, Inc. Through his own struggles, Steve identified a way to bring peace and healing to others suffering from similar circumstances by focusing on the mental, physical, and functional healing of the clients.
31 year old Deontay Wilder will tell you since becoming the WBC Heavyweight title holder in 2015 he has learned to be thankful for the little things in life. Wilder became the first American World Heavyweight Champion in 9 years, which was the longest period of time in boxing history without an American heavyweight champion. As an amateur he won a bronze medal in the heavyweight division at the 2008 Olympics. This led to his nickname of "The Bronze Bomber", which Wilder coined after Joe Louis, who was also from Alabama and was known by the nickname of "The Brown Bomber".
Wilder is undefeated as a professional with a 97.2% knockout-to-win ratio, with 18 knockouts in the first round. As of July 2016, Wilder is ranked the world's third best heavyweight by The Ring magazine and BoxRec, and fourth by the Transnational Boxing Rankings Board.
