GROWING BOLDER: Episode 4

 

Nancy Hiller never felt like she fit in — not with her family, not in school and not as she began her career. She had what she calls a contentious relationship with her step-father, who would insult her work and her worth, calling her useless.

 

Out of spite, Nancy found herself at a local vocational college, looking for ways to make her life and her creativity take shape. What she discovered changed her future, and led her to become a successful columnist, author and artisan, specializing in woodworking and custom designs and creations.

 

But she’s never stopped Growing Bolder, and striving to prove the doubters wrong.

GROWING BOLDER
In the Edge and in the Moment

 

David Hackett’s life reads like a Hollywood script. A surfer turned skateboarding pioneer and icon, he was a world champion at 15. He was 20 when his brother murdered their mother in the kitchen of their family home. Hackett spent the next 20 years as a drug addict and alcoholic and one of his sports top professional riders.

 

After getting sober, he was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer and cured himself with lifestyle modification. Happily married and totally drug and alcohol free, “Hackman” became a highly sought after addiction recovery guru, motivational speaker, entrepreneur, award-winning graphic and product designer, brand ambassador, and fine artist.
