Episode #37: Free Yourself And Be The Best That You Can Be

You know, sometimes, you could be your own worst enemy. The decisions we make for ourselves with regard to our present and future, plans and achievements and of course, health and fitness would reflect our character. The moment you lose balance in what you do and where you are with the challenges you are going through, you may end up doing yourself more harm than good.

You must harness your own potential to be the best that you could be. This is what Richard Nikoley stands for in his book and blog, Free The Animal. Free The Animal: How To Lose Weight And Fat On The Paleo Diet encourages you to free yourself in order for you to reach your best in all the things that you do. The blog touches on weight issues and more to help you get a better understanding your current lifestyle and what your lifestyle could be.

Richard and I will share with you some of our personal experiences and successes when it comes to body and health issues.

  1. Hi Melissa:

    Thanks for the opportunity to chat.

    Let me clarify a couple of things from your introduction just to keep everything on the up & up.

    I didn’t actually retire from the Navy. It was an 8-year deal and then I got out and was an entrepreneur since (1992).

    In terms of readership, it’s about 200-250K page views per month and 100-150 individual visits. Wish it was per week. :)

    Thanks again. Enjoyable conversation. Looking forward to round 2 sometime in the future.
