Marti MacGibbon’s new talk radio show, “Kickass Personal Transformation,” features fascinating guests like hilarious comedienne, ghost hunter and paranormal investigator Karen Rontowski. Karen’s interview aired live on January 13th, 2014, but you can listen on demand to her show on Marti’s YouTube channel, and to all archives on Pure Motive Radio network’s site. In 2012, Karen headlined Marti’s annual charity fundraiser, Laff-Aholics Comedy Benefit for Recovery.
Adversity, personal injury, grief and loss can make you feel as though you have lost touch with yourself, but the truth is that adversity introduces us to our real selves. When you survive something awful, you have the opportunity to increase your personal power, strength of character, and ability to contribute to the greater good based on how you react to and rebound from the adversity.
I’m a survivor of global human trafficking, domestic violence, hard-core drug addiction and homelessness. For years, I allowed adversity to change the way I thought about myself, other people and the world, and to hold me back from recovery.
