Success is a Choice

Apr 28, 2022

Jamy Bechler recently appeared on the "Surviving to Thriving" podcast hosted by Heather Knight. Jamy talks about coaching people up so that they can reach their full potential. His interview was broken up into three episodes. One of the questions he tackles in part 2 is how to continue learning and understanding other people. He says one of the biggest mistakes we make is not seeing other people's perspectives and refusing to walk a mile in someone else's shoes.

Host Heather Knight is the founder and chair of Surviving to Thriving, an Atlanta-based non-profit that provides a long-term sustainability program for victims of domestic violence. The passion for domestic violence awareness and prevention started from her personal situation in her teen years and then grew into a career in law enforcement. Heather recently left the police department after founding Surviving to Thriving in order to dedicate more time to her podcast (also Surviving to Thriving) and to teach the headlining program of R.A.D. Women’s Self-Defense.

1-in-4 women will experience domestic violence in their lifetime. Join host, Heather Knight, and guests as they discuss this taboo topic and provide tools to help others go from surviving to thriving.
