Thanks for visiting!

Hello and welcome!   I’m Rick Kirschner, and this is my personal website.  Typically, I'm defined by what I do or what I've done.  You know, bestselling author, speaker, trainer and coach, Naturopathic Physician, and so on.  

But here, I'm just Rick (or Ricky if you count yourself as my friend or part of my family.)  

Using the tabs above, you can access some personal music, along with my original humor site from the 1990s.  Note: If you don't get the old jokes, no problem, because...well, they're old.  In that case, just have a laugh at what I used to think was funny!   

If you’re looking for my business website, you will find it here: 

My daughter Aden Nepom has taken over the business, and is available for speaking and training bookings.  You can contact her through website. 

I hope you enjoy this collection of my early web stuff. 


What follows below is a third person biographical bit, copied and pasted from elsewhere.
