Montell Owens, running back and pro bowl special teams star for the Jacksonville Jaguars will be Chrissy Carew’s guest on the Insightful Player TV Show on MingleMediaTV.com (www.minglemediatv.com/insightfulplayertv.html) this Tuesday, July 19 at 7 p.m.

Owens is one of the 32 members of the Insightful Player™ team. To be named to this team, one must be a person of integrity, such as a current or former NFL player, who shares their personal message of hope for the sole purpose of lifting the spirits of all, especially children.

Chrissy Carew, a Master Certified personal and business coach based in Nashua, NH founded Insightful Player™ in April 2010 with a vision of providing an answer to a crucial worldwide calling for messages of hope that provoke positive actions.  “I’m thrilled to have an online show on MingleMediaTV.com where I’m able to interview my Insightful Players like Montell Owens,  Usama Young, Rashied Davis and others,”  said Carew, who serves as the host of the show. Carew was inducted into the International Coaching Federation (ICF) New England Chapter’s newly-established Hall of Fame on June 13.

Montell Owens’ path to the NFL wasn’t easy. He got there through sheer determination and hard work. At Concord High School in Wilmington, Delaware, Montell excelled in academics, music and sports. He was a member of the National Honor Society, a lead trumpet player in the jazz band, and a letterman in football, baseball, and track. As graduation approached, he began to get offers from colleges. The best offer – a full football scholarship – came from a surprising place: The University of Maine. All Montell knew about Maine is that it was cold and nine hours away from home. Still, his parents could not afford to pay for college, and Maine was the opportunity he had been waiting for. There, his running back coach Jeff Cole helped mold him into the player and individual he is today.

On The Insightful Player show, Chrissy Carew will discuss Cole’s influence on Owens, the need to build character in the youth of America, and how Insightful Player teamed with Owens a year ago on his return to Concord H.S. for the 1st Annual Montell Owens Youth Football Camp.

The Insightful Player™ team members are individuals that believed in themselves and relentlessly pursued their most far-reaching dreams, which resulted in a career in the National Football League.  The Insightful Player.com website features the inspirational stories of 32 current and former NFL players, each of whom overcame great obstacles and hardships to become not just fine athletes, but through their values and their life experiences, became extraordinary individuals that serve as an inspiration to us all.

The short-version of each Insightful Player story is available on InsightfulPlayer.com. The full-length version will appear in the Insightful Player book that will be published by Morgan-James Publishing this summer.

The Insightful Player™ is brought to you by Coach Chrissy Carew, Master Certified Personal and Business Coach.  Chrissy has been deeply inspired by her father, the late Coach Walter Carew, Sr.  Her beloved father is in several Halls of Fame as a high school football coach (as well as high school and college player). He used the game as a way to help kids build strong character and teach them valuable life skills.  The Insightful Player™ was created to help make our world a much better place.

Washington Redskins Hall of Fame linebacker Ken Harvey, one of 32 current and former NFL players recognized as Insightful Players will be the guest of the new weekly Insightful Player online show on MingleMediaTV.com  Tuesday night  July 5 at 7 p.m. ET. Mingle Media TV produces and broadcasts over 40 hours of web series and event coverage each week.

Chrissy Carew, a Master Certified personal and business coach based in Nashua, NH founded Insightful Player™ in April 2010 with a vision of providing an answer to a crucial worldwide calling for messages of hope that provoke positive actions.  “I’m thrilled to have an online show on MingleMediaTV.com where I’m able to interview my Insightful Players like Ken Harvey and have their stories told to the world,” said Carew, who serves as the host of the show. Carew was inducted into the International Coaching Federation (ICF) New England Chapter’s newly-established Hall of Fame on June 13.

The Insightful Player™ team members, like Harvey, are individuals that believed in themselves and relentlessly pursued their most far-reaching dreams, which resulted in a career in the National Football League.  The Insightful Player.com website features the inspirational stories of 32 current and former NFL players, each of whom overcame great obstacles and hardships to become not just fine athletes, but through their values and their life experiences, became extraordinary individuals that serve as an inspiration to us all.

The short-version of Ken Harvey’s Insightful Player story is available on InsightfulPlayer.com. The full-length version will appear in the Insightful Player book that will be published by Morgan-James Publishing this summer. Kenneth Harvey is a former NFL Pro Bowl linebacker who is now the president of The Ken Harvey Companies. He writes as a hobby but enjoys the thrill of taking a single sheet of paper and making it come alive with imagination.

Twelve years after he left the game, Harvey is enjoying a life of entrepreneurship and writing with the debut of Xavier: A Hero No More, his first novel. From a high school dropout to the NFL and more, Kenneth is a believer that anything is possible.

The four-time nominee to the Pro Football Hall of Fame, Harvey is also one of the Redskins’ 70 Greatest Players. He believes that his new novel demonstrates some of the struggles players have after leaving the game.  Harvey has established his own website:  www.transition57.com as a means for educating players about becoming entrepreneurs after their playing days are over.

Ken really has a heart for other athletes in transition. He cares about their ability to transition from sports to the marketplace; from inactivity to activity fueled by good health and healthy habits; from a mindset of contentment with life on the field to a sky’s the limit attitude off of the field; from irresponsibility to responsibility.

Excerpt for Ken Harvey’s InsightfulPlayer.com story:

Ken Harvey believes in second chances. “Mistakes happen,” says the former linebacker for the Phoenix Cardinals and the Washington Redskins and current Washington Redskins Director of Responsibility. “What matters in life is how effectively you rally after making and recognizing a misstep.”

Ken’s own missteps, from his perspective, date back to his decision to drop out of high school despite the urging of his coach and parents to stay in school and work hard. After leaving high school, he fell into a rut of destructive thought patterns. “Once you start thinking you’re not much good for anything, you resign yourself to getting the lowest-paying job, or you go to an interview but you’re not fully prepared. Then you wonder why you’re not getting a better job or you’re not making it. It’s because you’ve set your standards low and everything around you has become that standard.”

One day he picked up a newspaper to see what kind of job he could hope to have without a high school diploma. The prospects, he realized, were grim. He knew he would need to set the bar higher for himself. But doing so was a gradual process. “I had a plan as to how I was going to get into college. I worked out every day and lifted weights and ran. I stopped going to parties …. I started hanging around good people.”

In a way, it all goes back to his decision to go back to high school after dropping out: an attitude of persistence that has stayed with him ever since. “I believe in second chances. I believe in that we can help each other out. I always try to look at the hope and the good inside of people. I think that’s it. No matter what, if you look deep enough, there is good in almost everyone.”

3D TV – Web Series? Yup, Award-winning “Safety Geeks” Releases 1st 3D Comedy Series

If you haven’t been following what’s happening with video online – or the growing community of Web TV Series (oh, yeah… hello, all of us here at Mingle Media TV want you to go to sign up for our weekly reminders for our 30 LIVE web shows...) then you will want to start at the TOP with the “Safety Geeks: 3D” award-winning, scripted, web series.

Some background… Mingle Media TV met the cast of Safety Geeks on the Red Carpet at the Streamy Awards…

They hinted about their 3D production for season 1 and then invited Mingle Media TV to a LIVE press conference where we were able to SEE with our own eyes (using 3D glasses that are super cool looking – not like the ones from the 1950’s) the awesome FX of what 3D looks like in your living room… (Sony, Samsung, Panasonic – this is a shameful plug in hopes of sponsorship)… All I can say is Christmas can’t come soon enough, I want a 3D HD TV (my son says 72″ but I don’t think I can sell him for enough money to pay for that model).

Here’s some background on how they made the 3D web series along with our reaction to viewing it during the press conference yesterday:

Now, if you still haven’t seen the Safety Geeks series… we’re gonna make it easy for you -> here’s Season 1 Episode 1 entitled: Sexy Lap Dance of Doom!

Here’s the back story: Produced by Dave Beeler and Tom Konkle, “Safety Geeks: 3D”, follows the comic adventures of a semi-elite force of safety experts; the P.O.S.H. (Professional Occupational Safety Hazard) team who is obsessed with making the world along with bits of Canada a safer place. The CSI-like team investigates accidents to find out what went wrong and who is to blame, however, their involvement causes far more damage than they prevent, leaving a trail of chaos and destruction in their wake.
