LIFT Your Story with Alan Stevens International Profiling and Communications Specialist


We almost turned off our ZOOM cameras! 🙂

What a fascinating field Alan is in.  And it’s wonderful how he says he looks for the lies.

As an Internation Profiling Specialist (and Communications), Alan has learned how to read people’s character simply by looking at their faces, and further to that their body language.

He tells people he can clear a room.  No, not “clean” a room out, CLEAR a room out.  Understandably, particularly for people who are very private, the one thing they don’t want is to be standing in front of someone who can tell them things about themselves from facial profiling that they try to conceal.

Fascinating interview, including the discussion about Alan’s Camp Fire Project.  A must listen to.

You can reach Alan at or .au for Australia.  You can also go to for, yes, a free”hyper class”  course on profiling. 

For the Camp Fire Project, search on Facebook and make sure you separate the word “Camp Fire”.

More about Alan Stevens:

Alan Stevens is an International Profiling and Communications Specialist regularly featured on National TV, Radio and in the World’s Press, profiling the likes of our leading politicians, TV and sports stars as well as Britain’s Royalty. He’s been referred to by the UK Guardian as the leading authority on reading people, globally and the mentalist meets Dr Phil by the Herald.

 Alan has worked with international clients, the likes of Disney Films and Gillette, and high-profile organisations like the Australian Federal Police to help them to understand how people tick. Alan works with business owners and executives, helping them to understand and engage their clients and prospects, enhancing their presentations and negotiation skills. And with parents and teachers to help them enhance the ability of their children to reach their full potential while improving the experience of parents, teacher, and student.

His latest community initiative is The Campfire Project. The Campfire Project is a safe place for men and women to give themselves permission to tell their stories. To share their experiences and wisdom from around the world. This is his #WeTogether initiative.

Rob shares about his carpet cleaning service, and how he transitioned into media, and what inspired him to start his series of Rob Versus….

The first one Rob Versus The Scammers, and we even spoke to this at the end of the show about how they still find new ways.  Rob sends a message to NOT post your vaccination of COVID certificates… find out why.  And the value of sarcasm…

Rob does share a softer side of his sarcastic world about his daughter being diabetic and her recent new life thanks to her transplants, and about his concern for people and being scammed.

LIFT Your Story with Dialogue Doctor Jeff Elkins Writer Editor and Ghostwriter


Jeff runs a service called Dialogue Doctor by night and works for a tech company Simmersion  by day.  Simmersion is a business that simulates difficult conversations for professionals to work with.  Jeff leads the writing team.  He sits down with world experts and as a professional mimick, he produces zoom like videos with Artificial Intelligence which are used to help people simulate difficult conversations.  This is where he began his ghostwriting and novels.  Jeff has 10 novels out, including two series – one mystery and the other urban fantasy.

One of the areas they deal with is Suicide Prevention.  He says when talking to someone who has suicidal ideations, you need to practice the critical conversation.  Jeff says that the skills he hones during the day transfer into his novels.

Jeff said he learned that it was important to network with other authors.  After “taking” from the community, he decided it was time to give back.  He began teaching how to write dialogue to authors.  He has just finished a 20 week master course.  He has a free podcast and newsletter that you can get at   Jeff says dialogue is what engages the characters in the story.  It is how we connect – through conversation.

Jeff worked as a preacher for 15 years before becoming a writer.  He said he learned so much more when he had to teach something then when he sat in a class.  So when he was teaching his master course he said he too was learning.  Dialogue Daisy is one concept he created for the course and it is available on as well.  He says it has to do with going from the roots, to the stem and then to the blossom of a character’s voice, and the components and how to build them as a character.

We discussed words to avoid like the “but” and “actually” both of which are used so often by people without knowledge of the impact they have.  Writing dialogue is about using words strategically.  Jeff gave examples of words from an antagonist to a protagonist, and vice versa, which was really interesting!

Jeff shared with us that he was dyslexic as a child and avoided english at any cost.  As a high achiever, the only class he failed in College was English, and this was discouraging.  However, he persevered and an experience where he was sitting in a Deacon’s meeting changed his life.  At the end he was asked to write everything down from the meeting in a pamphlet.  Jeff wrote a 30 page pamphlet and was told he should write more.  He went online and took a course at and started writing short stories, and hence began his writing career.

When asked if he was now doing something he loves, he said he was “doing something he loves to do, and something that loves him back”.

If you are looking for help with writing, editing or would like to have someone write your book as a ghostwriter, or if you would like to get one of his books, you can reach Jeff at or at

LIFT Your Story with Rob Roseman Former Professional Poker Player Podcaster Author and Dad


Rob is a dad to three childen 8, 6 and 3.  When he left his professional poker playing profession he didn’t know what he was going to do with himself so he decided to start a podcast.  He started interviewing his friends and neighbors about being a dad, and ended up getting some bigger guests like Jessie Itzler and Pat Flynn and decided he was getting so much good advice and tips, he decided to take the quotes and nuggets and put them in a book to share with other dads.  He learned to self publish and now his book Dad The Best I can is now on amazon, and is also the name of his podcast.  He says it’s like therapy to him as well.

He said that Pat Flynn was the one that encouraged and inspired him to do his podcast.  

Asked how he became a Professional Poker Player, Rob explains that he said he always played highschool games and college games with his buddies in college and was a trader in Chicago and worked on the floor, always fast pace, and once he burned out of that career, he was asked to play in Vegas.  He had a big score and at 30 decided why not.   Moved out to Vegas on a whim, met his wife, had his three children and stayed there for 11 years.  He says “it’s a hard way to make an easy living”.  He shares about his experience and what it was like, and how it relates to entrepreneurship and life. 

We spoke about the fact that there really isn’t anything out there to ready you for divorce.  Rob mentioned that Clubhouse has been a great place for support, and so too podcasts regarding divorce and learning from others.  He found it interesting that his 50/50 custody seems to be an anomaly.   Rob also explained that women tend to build relationships easier in the thirties and forties, however it is not as easy for men, yet it is so important to have them and not isolate yourself.

Rob discusses what he calls the “married to divorce gap”.  At this point you have some telling you how you must be happy to be single and free, and others showering you with pity.  It can be confusing.  It’s important for men to look at their egos, and to be able to recognize their weak spots and to deal with what is going on, not suppress it.

You can find Rob’s book Dad The Best I Can on Amazon which includes 52 tips from other dads, and he is on Instagram @dadthebestican.
