Barry Moniak

Barry Moniak was born with a curios mind. He was intrigued with how technology functioned, & awed by the intelligence & power of nature. As a young adult his esoteric fascination began looking into the human psyche … who are we … what limits or empowers us … and more importantly … why do we do the sometimes amazing - & yet other times absurd things that we do. These questions into the inner workings of the human condition led him to studies of philosophy, theosophy, psychology, physics & physical performance. He spent years teaching Wing Chun Kung Fu, a feminine based martial art form, & became a ski instructor at one of our local resorts 13 years ago when he moved here to Utah. These teaching endeavors were an opportunity to see how people relate to each other & their environment when they find themselves in challenging, confrontational or extreme situations. His most recent conclusion … as a species we’re still very much a work in progress. He resides in Salt Lake City & is the principal Change Agent for his firm - End In Mind Empowerment - providing speaking, consulting, & training services. Today Barry is going to share with us a few of his ideas on Relationship Intelligence, & the Dynamics of Interpersonal Sensitivity … Please welcome Barry Moniak

Over the last couple of years, Shantel’s life has been touched by numerous passings…best friends, parents, relatives…and in true form, she’s turned the pain, fear, and compassion into a training entitled “Live Like You’re Dying”. Shantel says, “The truth is that any day could be your last day on Earth, because the future is NEVER guaranteed. Too many people go out of the house blithely one day and never return--victims of a car accident, plane crash, bicycle accident, heart attack, and other catastrophes of LIVING (including Cancer)--I have learned to NEVER take my continued existence for granted. I LIVE VERY MINDFULLY, LOOKING AT LIFE in a whole different LIGHT. This was actually the GIFT I have received from having SO much Death around me of LOVED ones and Friends. I SEE LIFE as so much more than the GIFT it is.” Shantel will help you CHANGE your LIFE. She will teach you how to find your own answers. You will see a difference in all areas of your life and most important the relationship you have with yourself. You’ll have more power, structure and learn how to follow your intuition. When the principles you learn are honored, managed and followed, you will create order. Implementation is key and Shantel will teach you how. The Key is to first organize the “inside world”, then allow the “outside world” to fall naturally into place. When core principles are in order, your ability to create wealth and happiness will increase. With a better understanding of yourself, communication skills improve and you create a stronger relationship with yourself and others. The benefit will be a healthy balance between ORDER and FOLLOWING YOUR HEART. Shantel works with several different companies, their products and customer service. Shantel enjoys learning and gaining new skills. She has completed many training programs. Shantel loves to serve others and her community. Her experiences have taken her to service projects with many charities. She is also on the HOA board in her community as well as a chamber member.

It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being.” Shantel McBride can reignite the spark that grows into a bonfire of unlimited potential and opportunities for you. Shantel has been married to Paul for almost 27 years. They have two children—a very cute girl named Tayler (14) and a handsome young man named Tanner (16).
