CHOOSE YOUR ATTITUDE PODCAST

INSPIRATIONAL, MOTIVATIONAL, SUPPORTIVE,
AND MOST IMPORTANTLY, REAL.

The spark for the Choose Your Attitude Podcast comes from host Nicholas Strand’s late wife, Brianna. She fought a lifelong battle with Cystic Fibrosis but her amazing power to inspire and shine with ease – no matter life’s challenges – is the inspiration that fuels the stories you will find when you listen to the podcast.

Using his personal experiences with Brianna, his mom’s battle with lung cancer, and his own professional life as a traveling roadie, Nick hopes to share those stories with you as well as stories from other guests from all walks of life. The Choose Your Attitude Podcast aims to bring inspiration, motivation, support, some entertainment, and down-to-earth conversations to help us all feel the comfort that is within the uncomfortable.

We all face struggles and triumphs. Nick’s mission is to use that little spark of hope to inspire others so we may choose our attitude, move forward, and create a beautiful life. Take a listen!

009 : Innovating to conquer Cystic Fibrosis

In this podcast we sit down to chat with Martin Devlieger, an adventurer at heart. Martin has Cystic Fibrosis. Instead of letting CF hold him back, at a young age he innovated. Today he's the inventor of the Monarch Airway Clearance System, a life vest that provides a touch of independence for the patient, while helping vibrate the mucus build up in a CF patients lungs. His simple invention gave him the freedom he needed to adventure life without being anchored to Cystic Fibrosis. With a simple choice he created life of freedom and adventure, all by taking a upper hand over CF. Today, he lives his life, constantly taking adventures in his beautiful backyard in Crowsnest Pass, Alberta, Canada, all because of the CF Life Jacket he created.
