“When you’re doing long days on set, or you’ve got a day full of meetings, you want to feel good and engaged,”

“Eating well does that for me. I try to eat every few hours and make sure every meal has some protein and plenty of resourceful carbs.” If you want to be successful, eat before a big meeting so your brain and body have the high-quality, all-natural fuel they need to crunch deals.”

*Eat every few hours today and at some point knock out this Vin Diesel workout.

#1 Your Age Doesn’t Matter

By 22, he founded Virgin Records.

Branson is proof that it’s never too early to start.

But at 61, he’s also proof that being old is just a state of mind: Branson regularly kite surfs and attempts to break world records

*Your age doesn’t matter. Whether you are “too young” or “too old” to reach your financial dreams, if you think you are then you are.

I was born in Northwestern Pennsylvania and lived in a trailer park. I was raised by very conservative and religious (Wesleyan Methodist) parents. By some miracle I graduated college and moved to Florida. I have been a public school teacher since 1995. I have 7 years until I can retire. I was married in 1999 and divorced in 2001. I remarried in 2017 to Kate - 21 years my junior. Some of my life experiences as a 46-year-old, white American male, will come through in my writing, but the majority of this daily journey will be dedicated to improving myself, and hopefully you as well.
