Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels and guest James Purpura discuss the following:

  1. What is the premise behind Powerful-U and what is the first step in loving yourself?
  2. Why do we sometimes not see ourselves as others see us?
  3. How can we know how others truly perceive us?
  4. Why do some of us seem to be inherently negative, and others eternally optimistic
  5. How do we change? And does change always have to be painful?

PERCEPTION: Seeing Is Not Believing” Synopsis — James and Steph Purpura’s journey of transformation is nothing short of extraordinary. Before they met 15 years ago, their lives had hit rock bottom. Each was financially, emotionally, and spiritually bankrupt. At the lowest point in their lives, they met and shared a vision of creating a life beyond their wildest dreams. They helped each other to personally evolve, clearing away barriers to self-fulfillment, using the power of perception to change self-limiting beliefs, enabling them to better sense and take advantage of opportunities. Shortly after meeting, Steph wrote James' first resume and taught him how to send an email. This initiated an unlikely but highly successful career in the technology industry.

Fast forward more than a decade, and their personal philosophy around perception had further evolved, along with the rapid growth in their tech company, until its sale gave them the freedom to begin helping others full time. With their seminar company, Powerful U, they are now sharing their accumulated knowledge so that personal development can be made affordable and accessible for all seekers.

We highly recommend viewing the film prior to the interview, which will definitely help the conversation. While many of us are on lock down during this pandemic, James is gifting a free film download for all who hope to benefit from its messaging.

Joyce Shulman, the Founder and CEO of 99 Walks a company that delivers monthly walking challenges and daily walking classes for women joins eHealth Radio and the Fitness and Health News Channels.


Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels and guest Joyce Shulman discuss the following:

  1. We've heard you say that walking is good for your body, your mind and your mood. Could you elaborate: How long do you have to walk to reap those benefits?
  2. For people who don't have a regular walking practice, how should they get started?
  3. The theme for April at 99 Walks is "walk in the rain" -- do you mean that literally?
  4. So there are actual benefits to walking in the rain?
  5. Does it matter where you walk?

Summary: There is no better time than right now to begin to develop a personal walking practice. Lace up your sneakers and walk out the door. One caveat: if you wait until you "feel" like it, you won't do it. You need to commit to walking whether you feel like it or not.


Joyce Shulman, Founder and CEO of the walking app 99 Walks and Macaroni Kid reaches millions of moms each month with hyper-local and national e-newsletters and websites, social media content, video and her Weekly Walk podcast.

Having created a one-of-a-kind digital platform, she connects families to the wonders of their own communities and inspires women to chase their dreams and crush their goals. Her most recent endeavor, 99 Walks, is on a mission to combat loneliness and improve fitness through the simple act of encouraging moms to walk together. Her mission? Nothing short of getting a million moms moving.

Throughout her two decades as an entrepreneur, Joyce has guided SAHMs, teachers and even MBAs to success. Joyce shares how moms need to “take care of mama bear” and avoid the “martyr mom syndrome”. Her experience in business and leading mompreneurs makes her a coveted speaker where she shares tactics for beating burnout, fueling creativity, goal crushing, how walking can fuel productivity and performance, and more.

Joyce received her Bachelors in Business Management from the University of Maryland and her Juris Doctor, Cum Laude, from St. John's University School of Law. After law school, she spent more than a dozen years as a New York City lawyer where her practice focused on complex commercial litigation.

A self-confessed idea junkie, in 1998, Joyce abandoned law firm life to liberate her entrepreneurial spirit and focus on the things that are most important to her: family, community and empowering women to chase their dreams.
