My Interview With Don Neder Where We Talk About Ice Baths, The Wim Hof Breathing Method, and Stewarding Our Body Well

Yeah, that photo is Don Neder in his first Cryotherapy session.

In the following interview with Don, you'll get a first-hand account of what cold therapy is all about and why he has sold his business to launch a new one around health and wellness.

Don and I originally met over a decade ago through the Gwinnett Chamber of Commerce. We became clients of each other, and eventually good friends. When I took a group of business leaders through the Island Story experience, Don Neder was one of the people who participated in the weekly session. It contributed to a process in Don's life where he eventually got serious about his health, began a new trajectory from his found purpose to eventually selling his promotional printing company to launch a new business called Flowgevity, which equips people to live the best life possible (mental and physical).

In my following interview with Don Neder, we talk about his entrepreneurship and technology background, selling his business to pursue the construction of a new company around the Wim Hof Method, Cold Therapy, and other science-backed wellness approaches to living better.

How Scott Siegel Thinks About Systems & His Most Important Lessons Learned

As a continuation of my inspirational people interview series here on the blog, I'm excited to introduce you to Scott Siegel, founder of Beacon Sales Advisors (and powered by Sales XCeleration). Formerly from up north in Massachusetts, Scott moved to the Atlanta area in 2017 where he eventually launched his sales consulting business (working with companies from $1m-$50m to grow revenue).

Knowing a similar network of people in the Atlanta area, we eventually got connected and met up in-person.

Scott has a vast range of experience in the business world and is a reliable leader to know and hopefully work with (if you need guidance and support to grow your sales team and revenue).

So, without any further rambling from me, let's jump into my interview with Scott and hear what has to say about living better and working smarter.

My Takeaways & Quotes From Bo's Cafe By Lynch, Thrall, & McNicol

For the past few months (and through half of 2020), I'm participating in a Gwinnett Church Leadership Development Group (LDG) as a stepping stone towards further involvement at our church.

It's a small group of guys with two leaders guiding us through an in-depth and genuine (as opposed to superficial) spiritual discovery of God, ourselves, and each other. 

As part of the journey, we'll be reading a book (and sharing our takeaway) between each month's meeting and this month was the book Bo's Cafe by John Lynch, Bill Thrall, and Bruce McNicol (affiliate link).

The fictional book follows the story of a man in a mid-life crisis, primarily in the context of his marriage falling apart. The more he holds onto and attempts to superficially fix his marriage and himself the more his relationship with his wife slips through his fingers. But, along the way, an older gentleman begins mentoring him. As he helps the main character navigate through the challenges, we move closer to the root problem that is causing all the chaos.

Much of the story reminded me of the difficult journey that followed after moving from Arizona to Atlanta in my own life and marriage. 

Below are my lessons learned, key insights and highlighted quotes from the book.

How To Understand & Transform Your Stalling Small Business [for BrainLeaf]

Do you want an additional glimpse into The Jump: From Chaos to Clarity for Your Small Business? 

In this guest article for Brainleaf (which begins the promotional train for the book launch!), I explore the five adult development stages and how facing fear and embracing responsibility becomes our starting point for leveling up as a leader. If you're unsure what underlying fears are driving your behavior, entrepreneurship will certainly illuminate them. Fear of failure, success, corruption are three common ones I explore in the blog post while also illuminating how they affected me.

If you're not familiar with BrainLeaf, it is an online SAAS to help creative and technical businesses scope their projects faster. Poor planning leads to lost profits and Brainleaf empowers its users to effectively plan out their projects. It's the type of tool I wished we had when I owned and operated Noodlehead Marketing. The company is founded by my good friend, Jason Long who I interviewed here on the blog as part of my inspirational people series.

So, without further ado, check out my guest blog post for Brainleaf on their blog. Click here to read "How To Understand & Transform Your Stalling Small Business".
