Own Your Schedule

Last week, I had a lot of things to do. It was a week where a holiday (New Year’s Day) was on a Monday which left us with 4 days of the work week left (not including a short shift we have on Saturdays). Each day, I would tell myself what needed to be done […]

But Are You Happy? A Compass For 2024

Over the last few weeks, I’ve been in heavy marketing mode for “Fat Loss Simplified”, and the group began on January 1.  I’ll spend the next 8 weeks providing as much information and value as I can to those members in efforts to help them unlock, crack or “hack” their individual codes to fat loss.  […]

“Fat Loss Simplified”

Earlier this year, I was inspired to create a group coaching program. I took that inspiration from a course I was taking on social media content and saw the way that a short-term group could have themed modules on different aspects of a given topic. I spoke to a friend and fellow coach about his […]

Lists And Thoughts: 2023 In Review

I’m not sure what it is but it seems that every year since 2020 has its own elements of being completely surreal. 2023 was no exception just in its own unique ways. This year, family health took priority over a lot of other things. Both my mother and my wife had circumstances come up which […]

Fat Loss Vs. Business Ownership: Are We Really So Different?

Every day, (literally) EVERY day, I receive an email (often multiple), or a Facebook/Instagram message from someone reaching out to help me build my business. What they typically offer (or say they offer) is based on speed and reach. They want to send me 10-20 new leads every month, or blast emails out to hundreds […]

What You Won’t Hear About Coaching

When I knew I wanted to start my business, all I could really think about was helping people do two things: lose fat and get stronger. It seemed pretty simple. I’ll just open up my doors, assume that people like me/trust me enough to start training with me, and I’ll get them results. Simple. Except […]

48 Years, 48 Lessons

Rumor has it…I’m turning 48 tomorrow. Here are a few things I’ve learned along the way: 1-It’s a boring topic to discuss, but the older I get, the more the quality of my sleep matters. Do all you can to prioritize consistent, restful sleep.  2-I’m fortunate that every day I have an opportunity to do […]

A Few Words On Gratitude

I know, I know, it’s that time of year when most people are showing their gratitude to the people, circumstances and opportunities in their lives. I’ll be no exception this week. Gratitude is something I always have to keep front of mind for myself: when life is good and especially, when life isn’t as good […]

We Are Not On The Same Page About Weight Loss Medications

Navigating the health landscape can be dicey, even for those of us who make a living being involved in it. There’s an old joke and I’ll use “fat loss coaches” as the subject to highlight my point. How many fat loss coaches does it take to screw in a lightbulb? One to screw it in […]

Because Music Will Never Leave You

Coming off the heels of last week’s detour, writing about Britney Spears (interestingly one of my most popular articles of the year), I got caught up in a social media thread about my Top 30 albums. I was able to fly through the first ten to fifteen rather quickly and then it all started to […]
