Who of us has not experienced adversity? How do you view it? How do you react when life presents difficult situations? Can you muster the strength to continue to fight through the trials that life presents? Can you see that the paths that are littered with potholes and sharp turns sometimes brings you to a destination that can change the course of your life?
The truth is that most of us have experienced some sort of unpleasantries in life. Whether it’s sickness, the loss of a loved one, financial setbacks, or disappointment, we all have something that at one time weighed upon our hearts. And while situations like these aren’t necessarily limited to the things listed above, the things that may have troubled us may lead us down a path that could hold untold blessings and life altering experiences.

The “Bad” Brad Berkwitt Show took a bit of a departure when Brad interviewed Alex “The Barber” Marchuk of Crown Point, Indiana. I thoroughly enjoyed this interview, and was excited to put my thoughts on paper, because there is so much to share. Alex is engaging, enthusiastic, and talented. He spoke of his childhood, his family, his career, and he is truly a joy to be around.
Alex shared with us some of the details of his childhood. His first language was sign language, as he was taught by his parents, who are both deaf. He spoke of being an interpreter for his parents and reflected fondly on the details of his childhood.
Alex was very focused and driven. He wanted to study barbering and pursued it despite hurdles that were in the way. He went to barber college in 1995 in Indianapolis, Indiana and came out ready to take on the industry, recently purchasing the barber shop and building where he runs his business. When asked what advice he would give someone considering going into barbering, he gave some very sound words of wisdom: be patient and be professional. Continue reading
If laughter is the best medicine, then I think that Brad and Dennis may have overdosed. The two of them are hilarious, and it was a pleasure to shoot this show. There was genuine rapport among the two of them, and a lot of it was because they have similar values. Dennis is a very generous, giving person, and those qualities are endearing to us.
Dennis is a local retired boxing trainer, and he has a very full history of training professional athletes in the Northwest Indiana area. His boxing legacy has been passed down to his son, who’s a coach in Omaha Nebraska. I found it interesting when Dennis said that his son’s style of coaching was a bit different than his was. A lot of times, we as parents think that our children must follow our steps verbatim, especially if we have attained a level of success in a given field. This isn’t always the case. Dennis said that when he discussed training styles with his son, and their difference of approach, his son remarked that his fighter was winning. The proof is in the pudding. Dennis’ take on the matter is whatever works. Continue reading
