My Weird But Wonderful Journey in the Fitness Space (feat. Josiah Novak)

Written by:
My Weird But Wonderful Journey in the Fitness Space (feat. Josiah Novak)

If you want to hear the unusual story of how I got into the fitness industry and found a niche that I could excel in, then you want to listen to this episode.

This episode is a change of pace because instead of me babbling about something by myself, I’m babbling with Josiah Novak from The Fitman Project.

Seriously though, Josiah was kind enough to interview me for his podcast and I thought all of ya’ll might like it and so I’m reposting it for your listening pleasure.

Our discussion kind of wanders all over the place, but if you want to hear the rather unusual story of how I got into the fitness industry in the first place and then found a niche that I could excel in–writing–and moved into supplements and the rest of it, then you want to listen to this episode.

We also discuss some of what has worked well for me in terms of maintaining at least a semblance of work/life balance.


5:40 – Where did you begin the fitness journey?

22:52 – What made you get into the supplement business?

29:47 – How do you keep multiple ventures and family life in balance?

37:31 – How do you choose which ideas to move forward with?

47:15 – What are your most valuable habits and routines?

53:12 – What are your favorite books?
