From Stutterer To A Championship Mind
You can never go wrong when you have a plan-of-action. You may need to fine-tune and adjust your action steps at times, but your final goal should never be compromised.
~ John Di Lemme
From Stutterer Pain To Championship Speaking
John Di Lemme, from Yonkers, New York, brings a street-smart, common sense attitude to his work as a business consultant, strategic business coach, international speaker, and trainer. Diagnosed as a stutter in childhood, told he would never speak fluently, John’s is a Demosthenes story of overcoming his painful speaking impediment [from the 4th century BC, in the painting above].
Now John specializes in assisting individuals, companies, and small businesses reach their fullest potential with fundamental marketing and motivation strategies. His speaking skills take him to appreciative international audiences on stage with colleagues at the top of the most successful business consultants.
John joins us at CBJ/060 because he brings excellent insights for a balanced everyday life to any venue, from Manhatten to Possum Hollow. John’s point is global: our personal demographic doesn’t matter when it comes to mastering the reality of purpose, persistence and ongoing education for the rest of your life.
John’s important details repeatedly provide useful maps that drive his clients from lost, to found. Offstage, he practices what he preaches. Cool under pressure, he quickly came back for a second interview when our first CBJ interview suddenly cut out with a cluster of technical difficulties. Thanks again, John!
John’s Championship Experience
In addition to building a successful company, John changes lives around the globe as an international, world-class speaker who has spoken in more than five hundred venues. Over the past fifteen years, he has shared the stage with the best of the best including Rich Devos, Denis Waitley, Jim Rohn, Dr. John Maxwell, and Les Brown – to name only a few. John’s insightful, interpersonal teachings appear on Fox Small Business, Inc. Magazine, HSN (Home Shopping Network), CNBC, and in many other media outlets. He’s opinionated and straight to the point.
Business realities also need precise, targeted intervention systems. Last time I checked, business was connected with life.

- Interesting, Important and helpfulApril 28, 2018 by J.M.I from Sweden
I am listening in from Sweden, and I learn so much from Dr Parker and his interesting guests. Sadly, information like this is hard to find amongst practitioners here, and underlying factors to symptoms are of little interest. I am thankful to Dr Parker dedicating time in spreading word about helping people with psycological dysfunctions from a non conventional angle. Thank you!
- Core Brain Journal--NeuropsychologyMay 25, 2017 by Dr Terry James Gingras from United States
Just finished session 118 with neuropsychologist, Dr. Braun. Excellent content presented in a relaxed style. I'm a neuropsychoogist with a specialization In ADHD so I appreciate both Dr. Parker's and Dr. Braun's efforts demystifying the practice of neuropsychology.
- Exceptional interviews !!May 16, 2017 by MCVGRL from United States
Core Brain Journal, with Dr. Charles Parker is a must listen for a wide audience. If you are either the individual, suffering from complex personal medical/ psychological issues; or a family member, friend... please tune in often.
- Podcast 107 (Brain Health) - Very informative!April 13, 2017 by ad1978mke from United States
I especially liked this Podcast because it provided a wealth of valuable brain health research and tips in an approachable, easy-to-listen-to format. The rapport between the Guest Speaker (Dr. Braun) and Host (Dr. Parker) was evident, and I hope to hear another Podcast with this Guest Speaker!
- Top quality informationFebruary 5, 2017 by MD Ireland from Ireland
As a functional medicine doc I found this iterview stimulating, inspiring and it is full of clinically useful information
- FascinatingFebruary 1, 2017 by jinki1 from United States
If you love science and psychology, then this is for you. The brain is such a mysterious machine, and listening to experts discuss how it works is fascinating. This seems like a pick-and-choose type podcast: I'll skip the shows focusing on estrogen and alzeimer's and go for creativity, anxiety, music, and others. But what I've listened to so far is great.
- My Brain Thanks You!January 13, 2017 by B. Keenan Johnston from United States
Thanks for shedding some much needed light on issues of the brain. I recently became interested in the subject when I was listening to NPR do a segment on neuroplasticity. I could never remember the name of the author, but it helped me find this great podcast!

- “How I Found Myself” Dean RobertsDecember 2, 2016 by Don Hutcheson from United States
I just had the pleasure of listening to Dr. Charles Parker’s latest interview with Mr. Dean Roberts on the topic: “How I Found Myself.” The thesis of this remarkable podcast is that the difference between treatment success and failure for conditions such as depression, anxiety, ADHD, PTSD and others is often the result of omitting crucial brain, biomedical, and functional neuroscience information and insights. Well done and much-needed. Wish you continuing success!
