Discover Your Potential Host Dan Gilman & Anna Devere Are Changing The Game Thanks to Their First Guest, Dr. Tom Chesser
Only six months ago, Dan Gilman and Anna Devere launched their inaugural show as co-hosts, with Tom Chesser of Rise Up Media & Marketing as their first guest. The show’s theme was The Ripple Effect, and today, the dynamic duo measures the ripples of their success in exponential terms thanks to their professional relationship with Tom Chesser. This episode was posted on YouTube on June 29, 2023, and resulted in a partnership far exceeding their expectations. The team has learned to expect miracles together, and 2024 is already proving the power of combined, heart-based intentions.
“Discover Your Potential” was initially produced as a call-in radio show on WHJJ and The IDS radio network in Rhode Island by Dan’s mother, Cindy Gilman. The popular program lasted over 30 years, and Cindy’s compassion touched the lives of many and filled her office with a steady stream of clients, but her radio show inspired Dan to follow in her footsteps. When Cindy passed away nearly three years ago, Dan became the show host and remained faithful to her vision, with empathy and compassion at the center of everything.
Dan pursued a graphic design career before taking over his mother’s show. His degree from Massachusetts College of Arts and Design and entrepreneurial backbone landed him several innovative projects and partnerships over 25 years. He founded Hummingbird Radio and produced over 20 different shows. His passion for music and the arts started in his youth and helped him overcome bullying. It also fueled his curiosity to interview motivational speakers, coaches, authors, and other creatives supporting personal development.
Anna Devere joined Dan last June and brought her gift for storytelling to the mix. Anna was writing and hosting the radio show “Celebrate Every Day,” a daily educational vignette that featured National Days, their origins, and the “no way” factor of historical trivia. The show had millions of followers, won four Davey Awards for social impact and education, and ran for four years. When Dan and Anna met, they were struck by their similar background in holistic health.
Anna also served a global community with singing and songwriting, most notably performing in the Grammy Award-winning gospel choir The Saints Unified Voices, led by Gladys Knight. The two shared an interest in making an impact, and when they interviewed Tom Chesser, the synergy was immediately apparent.
Dan has always had a talent for connecting with iconic speakers such as Les Brown, who he worked with in 2020. His daughter Sumaya Brown was also a guest last Fall and brought a new generation of energy and inspiration to “Discover Your Potential.” With their combined connections, the show’s content grew to new heights, and the final hurdle would be greater distribution. Tom has a track record of helping companies position themselves as an authority with both media and messaging; immediately, Dan & Anna wanted to add Dr. Tom Chesser to The Discover Your Potential Family, giving them the Global Recognition they were looking for.
