Thank You Active Rain Members & Friends

Hello all,

Alexandra and I are truly appreciative of all your support and good wishes over the past two years during Alexandra's recovery from a devastating stroke.  We are back working together as business development professionals and leadership coaches, although we now have totally repositioned Napa Consultants, Int'l in the health and wellness field and have taken on two amazing partners.  

We have two very exciting projects currently under development. The first is Beyond Limits, a non-scripted "docu-series" about individuals with disabilities who have accomplished extraordinary things and who mentor people with the same or similar challenges on an adventure of a lifetime. 

The second project is a video course for "overnight caregivers" that is called, "Prepare to Care, Now!" This will be coming out later in Q2, in four languages and marketed globally.  There are 50 million caregivers in the USA alone and over 50% feel overwhelmed by their new role according to the AARP.  Our aim is to help radically reduce the high cost of caregiver overwhelm as a health crisis and its side-effects on businesses (absenteeism and low productivity).

My book, "Enlightened Caregiving for Men Who Care"  is now available on Amazon. The big breakthrough during my own caregiving journey was the recognition that BOTH the caregiver and the care recipient can be independent sources of inspiration for each other during a health crisis, an equal partnership.  And, being a source of inspiration is who you really are when you are at your best. This totally transcends all considerations of race, gender, creed or color. So, it's really not just for men.

If you know of anyone who is struggling as a caregiver, please refer them to buy the book on Amazon. If you have time to read the book, please leave a review.

All our best wishes for your continued success. Cheers! Ron & Alexandra

Good morning Ron and Alexandra,

So very good to see you back in the Rain and to hear your life is moving on a wonderful path! Your new focus sounds like a perfect direction for your life and good to hear your new book is available on Amazon. I remember being a caregiver for my Geno and can be difficult to balance everything. The more information and support that is available, the better. I can't wait to hear about your two very exciting projects currently under development. Exciting to have you back posting!

Hi Ron & Alexandra,
Thanks so much for the update. Life's challenges can lead us in new and exciting directions, can't they? It sounds like you're turning those lemons into a big batch of lemonade and sharing it with the world.

Best Wishes going forward.

Hi guys. I am a bit of a creature of habit. Each morning I get up, either walk or run, shower and head to Starbucks (or any local coffee shop), open my computer and login to AR. When I saw your names pop up I was so pleased. I will bookmark this post because I think the subject (and your books) are so important. I hope I see your names more often when I login  :)

I was very glad to see your names on my blog roll, and love the positivity of your post. I am sure these projects will be well received. Being a caregiver, long-term is very hard, I know how hard it is short term.

It warmed my heart to see your post on the blog roll this morning Ron and Alexandra! I am not surprised that you created a positive situation out of one that could have been so devastating. I would love to hear you give a zoom call about your new book Ron. Debe Maxwell, CRS also knows about being a care giver.  All the best to both of you ❤️

Hi Ron & Alexandra, 

I'm so happy to hear Alexandra is on the mend and you're able to get back to working together again. I imagine it has been quite a journey. A good friend of mine went through this a couple years ago. I'm also so happy to see how well she's doing. All the best to you both in your new ventures.

Ron and Alexandra Seigel I was just thinking of you both and how much I missed you. Please give Alexandra my best. I may purchase your book for my nephew as he is the caregiver for my Sister and brother-law. He is an angel and I do not know what I would do without him

Ron, there is nothing like a major health crisis to grab your attention! I would love to talk to you about what you and Alexandra are doing. Lately, I've been focused on learning everything I can about about the impact of diet choices on health outcomes. Also, I'm trying to figure out how to turn my amazing experience into information that will help  other people who might be dealing with many of the issues involved in aging.
