Balancing Family and LifeAID
I’m excited to welcome Aaron Hinde of LifeAID Beverage Co. on the Better Than Yesterday podcast. You may be familiar with his brands which include FitAID, GolferAID, and PartyAID. This company has exploded over years and it’s been thrilling to watch.
Aaron and I talk about the success of LifeAID, what’s made them successful, and how he balances an exploding company with a growing family.
We get so overwhelmed trying to balance friendships, family, careers, while trying to get in a workout routine. Aaron gives great insight into how he prioritize things and stays present in the moment.
Competing for Longer Lives
Today I’m sitting down with the Founders and Board of the Be The Difference Foundation based in Dallas. The organization was formed by four ovarian cancer survivors in different phases of survivorship, but they all have passion for life and ending the fight against ovarian cancer.
More than half of the women diagnosed with ovarian cancer pass away within five years of the diagnosis. Be The Difference gives women hope for a longer survivorship by supporting cure research, clinical trials, and more.
Be The Difference is hosting a Wheel to Survive event in Dallas February 26th to raise funds that will support women fighting ovarian cancer. This is a fun opportunity to give back, interact with the community, and be the difference. Wheel to Survive will also be hosted in cities throughout Texas, South Florida, and San Francisco.
In this episode, we talk about what it’s like getting diagnosed with ovarian cancer and fighting to extend life. These women teach incredible lessons about the power of choosing your attitude and helping other people who are facing challenges you have faced.
Do It in Excellence and Obedience
In this episode I’m joined by Jeremy Thiel. In 2005, Jeremy was introduced to CrossFit. Immediately, he knew he had discovered the path he’d been seeking since he first started training. This was not just a game he was going to play, but something he was going take part in that would effect positive change on a large scale. Naturally he dove in head first.
Jeremy felt the best way to learn was through action. Action, hard work, dedication, and discipline were the tools he utilized to take $500 and build a million dollar garage gym facility, CrossFit Central, in less than three years. In 2005, Jeremy along with his sister Carey started by running boot camps in parks all around Austin. He worked from his one bedroom apartment day in and day out blogging, emailing and programming; strong relationships sprouted out of his emphasis on the importance of being heavily involved in the Austin fitness community.
We talk about Jeremy’s journey to CrossFit and starting a gym, how he manages all his projects including a new podcast, and what’s coming up for him in 2017.
Age is a Number, Not a Limit
I’m joined this week by Robert McDaniel, a certified Spartan training coach. Bob isn’t your ordinary Spartan racer. He didn’t actually start running until his 40s.
Bob has finished multiple events in first place in his division, and now trains a number of inspiring Spartan racers in the DFW. Bob’s journey is incredible. He shares that in just one year he ran 15 marathons. That’s with hardly any history of running throughout his life.
You’ll hear how Bob found Spartan racing and committed to the race, who inspires him to quit complaining, and how dedicated he is to training his clients and helping them overcome their fears.
