From Fear to Fire: Secrets to Overcome Fear, Embrace your Gifts and Achieve Success
This is the place where real people share real challenges. Where you can find a common bond and uncommon wisdom through their stories. Use tips from the breakthroughs of others to jump start your success. Speaker, author, adventurer, and host Heather Hansen O’Neill takes you on the journey from fear to fire. Today we talk about the dedication required to parent with strong character even in the face of disability….and how that spurred the purpose of our special guest.
This week’s theme: Dedication
Imagine the lessons you would receive about perseverance, dedication, courage, and hope as the child of two Paralympians. The story our guest Jeff Welger shares with us today is a moving tribute to his parents’ strength, and the purpose he shares with the world.
Jeff is a respected and motivating professional with more than 20 years of experience in corporate meetings and events. Jeff’s experience spans varied industry sectors including bio/pharmaceutical, medical marketing and communications, finance, insurance, and leisure travel.
He is a high-performing, strategic-thinker skilled at relationship building and being a brand ambassador with exceptional presentation and interpersonal communications skills.
Growing up as a child of pioneering Paralympic athletes, Jeff was exposed to, and involved with, wheelchair sports from an early age. That experience, and as a tribute to his parents, Jeff helped to establish the Christa & Saul Welger Foundation. A 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to help, motivate and support disabled young athletes reach their highest potential—in sport and in life.
