The Dr. Vibe Show

Over the last two-and-a-half years, a medical surgeon, a police officer, a former college professor, a life coach, a professional athlete, a child and youth worker, a community support worker and several entrepreneurs from Toronto have quietly been working on a joint venture. This venture is being launched in the form of a book which they co-authored. The name of the book is KNew Me: 10 Men 10 Stories of Perseverance.

This informative book reveals stories and insights from many different perspectives, mostly from the authors personal anecdotes. Provided are methods and mindsets that can be used to overcome or better yet circumvent many dead-end decisions. The book is aimed at boys and men but with such valuable lessons from various walks of life, there is something in it for everyone!

In life, we often face many challenges and hardships. From relationship mistakes, identity issues, not fitting society’s mold of who they believe we should be, or simply not knowing what our next step is in life.

On some days, it feels as if everything is absolutely great! Other days it appears we’ve stumbled and fallen and no matter how much we try, it is so difficult to get back up.

Please know that while you fail, while you stumble, while you are trying to navigate through what’s happening in your life, understand that you are not alone in your journey! In this book, you will read open and honest stories about the everyday man, who has had his share of struggles but found his way to become the best version of himself that he could ever be.

This book is not about 10 men who fell down along their journey of life. This book is about 10 individuals who after falling, through resiliency, tenacity and discipline, found it within themselves to stand back up!

As a result of Jeff A.D. Martin’s work as an empowerment speaker, author of a critically acclaimed children’s book, and host of the globally downloaded podcast, Jeff has inspired others to step through their biggest fears, pursue their most unnerving passions and find their life’s purpose.
