    Heather Welch

    On Ask Win today (Monday, December 10, 2018), Best-Selling Author, Win C welcomes Heather Welch. Heather has lived completely off the power grid using solar power with a battery bank since December 2011. In 2017 she developed a podcast that would share insights into her off-grid experience but also share learnings from having to rely on nature for power and how nature is connected to our wellbeing. To succinctly describe her experience Heather came up with the title Sunshine & PowerCuts which then became two alternating podcast episodes. Sunshine relates to solar power, and also can be related to our wellbeing in terms of what brings us joy or “lights us up”. And the PowerCuts can be actually having no power which happens a lot when you have a small alternative power system, but also when we have challenges in life. How we deal with the power cuts in our lives depends on our wellbeing and using nature examples and reconnecting with nature we can re-sync ourselves to the world around us and recharge ourselves in this very digital age.

    Brett Weiss

    On Ask Win today (Tuesday, December 11, 2018), Best-Selling Author, Win C welcomes Brett Weiss. In 2009, Brett Weiss decides he wants to volunteer in Kenya. A teacher in high school economics, US history, and international relations, he has a particular interest in experiencing immersion in a community where he will learn firsthand about the difficulties of the aftermath of colonialism. Determined to ask questions and listen, he makes his first trip to Dago, a small village in Western Kenya. As a teacher, his curiosity is riveted on the children and the education system. What he learns in Dago shakes his world and opens his eyes to the void that is eroding the potential success of the next generation. Brett returns to the US quite moved by his experience in Kenya, realizing that many of the children he met would never be able to get an education and escape abject poverty. This is the impetus for him to start the Bernard and Else Weiss Dago Scholarship Fund, named after his parents. His goal is to sponsor as many young people as he can through high school, and he sets out with the passion and sincerity that have made his program so successful. Brett's book implores readers to support this mission in whatever way possible. The need is enormous; the smallest token of interest or help can bring about the grandest results. He also encourages readers to take their own personal journey, asking: Is it your time to start this journey? For more information visit: www.hopefordago.org. As I started to leave the classroom, the teacher came up to me and thanked me for giving the student the pen. When I asked him why the student began crying when the pen ran out of ink, the teacher explained that it was hard for these children to get pens, and the boy was worried he might never get another one. He was wondering how he would be able to continue going to school. Quote from the book - Brett Weiss To learn more about Brett visit www.weissscholarshipfoundation.org.
