“Emergency,” a Pioneering New Book on Child Safety, Equips Parents with Foundational Life-saving Skills

Published

on

CPR and First Aid expert Mark Wilhelmsson has written a new book that addresses a global epidemic of 1,000,000 early childhood deaths attributable to preventable accidental injuries and provides new parents extensive foundational safety training.

Two-year-old Markus was eating some fruit for breakfast when he suddenly froze and looked at his dad in panic. Time seemed to stand still for author Mark Wilhelmsson as he watched his son helplessly, realizing the boy was choking—and he didn’t know what to do.

Amazingly, young Markus was able to cough up the blockage and breathe normally, but as Wilhelmsson describes in his new book, Emergency: This Book Will Save Your Child’s Life, the experience set him on a course of investigating, learning, and compiling the top things every parent needs to know in a life-threatening situation.

8,000 early childhood deaths in the US—and 1,000,000 worldwide—each year are attributable to preventable accidental injuries, according to Safe Kids Worldwide. Now an American Red Cross Certified CPR, AED and First Aid Instructor, Wilhelmsson is on a mission to combat these statistics by educating the true first responders: parents. He writes on everything from busting newborn sleep-safety myths and preventing accidental drownings to home fire safety and—of course—how to rescue a choking child and perform CPR appropriately for a child’s age.

As Wilhelmsson reports in his new book, with average response times of ten minutes or more, 911 and local emergency response services are insufficient to provide life-saving care in the event of a child emergency. In a choking or drowning situation, Wilhelmsson writes, saving a child’s life comes down to a matter of seconds. It’s up to parents, then, to learn and provide the skills needed in those intense moments.

Wilhelmsson says, “As a Certified CPR, AED, and First Aid Instructor, I wanted to write the book that truly helps us deliver on the promise we inherently make as parents when deciding to bring a baby into this world: that we’ll do whatever it takes and commit to learning how to protect and keep them safe. I believe parents need to learn how to become self-reliant in emergency situations. They need to know how to save their own children’s lives.”

As the founder and president of Our Child’s Keeper (www.ourchildskeeper.com), Wilhelmsson’s instruction goes beyond the pages of the book, which provides links to on-demand video training guides and helpful resources from his organization.

While written for parents and caregivers of young children, the book is a resource sure to provide life-saving information for all members of the community.

Emergency: This Book Will Save Your Child’s Life is available from Amazon in hardcover, paperback, and ebook. Audiobook coming soon.

For Rachel Farnsworth, Healing Her Daughter’s Autoimmune Disease Is Just the Tip of the Iceberg

Published

on

Rachel Claire Farnsworth has always felt called upon to help and heal other people. But, having spent so many years locked in abusive relationships, was never able to reach her full potential. That is until she broke free of the cycle and found a way to reinvent herself. Now a Rapid Transformational Therapy and Reiki Master, her greatest achievements include helping her daughter overcome autoimmune disease and many others heal from PTSD, psoriasis, erectile dysfunction, and more. In her new book, The Power of Reinvention, she talks about her journey to empowerment and how it led her to such outstanding ends. 

Her process starts with the subconscious mind because she knows from experience that that’s where the tightest shackles are forged. Rachel has herself had to break down the barriers standing tall in her mind. So, she understands better than most exactly how it’s done. In working through the process alone and with her clients, she has found that three main beliefs hold us back: “I am not enough”; “what I want isn’t available”; and “I am different and can’t connect to other people”. In helping people (her daughter included) banish these beliefs, she transforms lives for the better. 

Of course, it hasn’t all been plain sailing. Starting up her business right before lockdown hit posed a big obstacle. However, her strong sense of purpose and undeniable gift have seen her through the hardships. Now, she’s ready to tell the world how she made it through Covid and many other difficulties to finally reach fulfilment. As she herself explains: “I want to share my story because I now feel whole and complete. I know my clients can feel the same way when we get to the root cause and heal the emotional pain lying behind their physical symptoms.”

David Shands Leads the Discussion on New Age Entrepreneurship at Investfest

Published

David Shands and a panel of other key leaders in the entrepreneurial arena discuss the need to educate the next generation of entrepreneurs on how to turn ideas into income

Atlanta, GA, October 2021 – David Shands, an authority in the entrepreneurship arena, hosted the “New Age Entrepreneurship” breakout session at Investfest 2021, at the Georgia World Congress Center. This breakout session connected key leaders who have all taken new and different approaches to build out their businesses.  The event which had over 4,000 in attendance put on by Earn Your Leisure (EYL) University CEOs, Rashad Bilal and Troy Millings, included speakers and performers such as Hill Harper, Les Brown, 19 Keys, Jim Jones, Fabolous, MG The Mortgage Guy, John Henry, Ian Dunlap, Wall Street Trapper, Ronne Brown, and Ne-Yo.

David Shands, a self-made entrepreneur, motivational speaker, author, business coach, and top-ranking podcaster, has been a major voice in the discussion on how the approach to business as an entrepreneur is evolving. On his podcast “Social Proof” that he co-hosts with Donni Wiggins, he provides insight and knowledge for entrepreneurs looking to expand their business and ideas. Social Proof is the #7 entrepreneurship podcast in the country and #43 business podcasts among all podcasts and houses over 100 interviews with entrepreneurs who all have a new or unique approach to business.

“We introduce people who have social proof, who have built something and have a story to tell,” said Shands.  Shands is also the founder of The Morning Meetup (www.TheMorningMeetUp.com), which is the only entrepreneurship training community in the country that gathers EVERY morning to help entrepreneurs navigate the journey to success.

Shands himself had his own unique business journey, going from employee to employer back in 2012 after he quit his job at the Cheesecake Factory and went on to build his own apparel line. From there, he has gone on to build a nationwide coaching program where he teaches start-ups, business owners, high school students, and even middle school students how to turn their ideas into their income while making the transition from day job to daydream just as he had.

His approach to business is built on simple principles like critical thinking and prioritizing your dreams.  “If you lose sleep doing what you love, you will eventually live the dream you only would have dreamt,” says David.

After years of leading and facilitating the discussion on new-age entrepreneurship, Shands was invited to lead the Investfest New Age Entrepreneurship conversation, featuring a panel of key leaders in the entrepreneurship arena:

Kezia Williams – the founder of a national initiative to train African American entrepreneurs

Ronne Brown – the founder of a community set on educating women on being the CEO of their businesses

Paulla McCarthy – the founder of a program designed to inspire youth and educate them on finances

Derrick Grace – the founder of a multimillion-dollar empire built off the concept of self-education

Shands and the speakers sat down for a candid conversation about what it takes to make it as an entrepreneur today. They dove into discussions about why your vision is important, how to think outside the box while your business is an infant, why sitting on ideas can kill your business, and much more. “In our journeys as entrepreneurs, we experience some of the most incredible triumphs known to the human experience. These victories come at a great cost, and the lessons learned are innumerable,” says Shands.

The aim of this discussion was to empower new entrepreneurs by enlightening them on what being in business is all about so that they can bring their own dreams to life, turn their ideas into income, and become the key speaker to empower others to do the same.

David even goes on to pose the question “Who’s going to be up here next year?”
