Todays guest has come onto the show to share his story, as he works towards the life that he truly wants.
Perhaps, he is already at that point already, and he can’t believe that his life can get any better either.
Starting his career in the education system, he has from his first working days been a person that looks to build health and wellness into his life.
He focused on coaching triathlon programmes as a Personal Trainer, Triathlon Coach, Youth and Junior Triathlon Development for Tri-Fi Health and Wellness and Chelsea Peirs, particularly looking at ways to tackle the problem of childhood obesity.
But these activities were just the foundation to where he is now, with his online platform the Traveling Cup, and of course a podcast thrown into the mix too.
In the summer of 2013, a former student met him for coffee.
And after a bit of catching up, he leaned in and confessed something. Fresh out of college, he needed our guests help.
He said, “I just graduated and want to make sure that the next steps I take allow me to have tremendous impact in the world. To help make the world a better place. What tips do you have? I feel a little lost. College didn’t really prepare me for this.”
So how did he feel when he heard his statement?
Did the angels start singing and a light shine down upon his head, showing him the next stage of his life, or did he just think “Well I think I can help this guy, but I don’t know about anyone else?”
Well let’s find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots, with the one and only Mr Mark W Guay
During the show we discussed such weighty topics such as:
How he never really cared about money in his life, but he always had a desire to make an impact to the world which directed his “Why.”
How he grew up in a poor family, with his Mother on benefits, and remembers the stress that desperately waiting for the cheque to come in would bring.
Why it is so important to simply focus on the next step that you have to take in your life, and achieve it before then choosing the next step to take.
How Steve Jobs talked about never having a worry for money when he didn’t have any, and also never having to worry about money when he loads of it either.
How people nowadays fail to see the opportunities that are in their lives everyday, due not to being given permission to think they can see what’s on offer.
