Today we’ve got my friend, an award-winning digital thought leader and author, distinguished Toastmaster & keynote speaker, former partner and Chief Operating Officer of a multi-million dollar retail company, and a sought after lifestyle mentor and executive performance coach. From Vancouver, fellow Canadian! Mr. Dai Manuel on the show!
Truthfully, I had an issue coming up with a title/theme for this episode because we just kinda hit record and talked about a thousand things.
We get into how he is 44 years old but looks like he could be 30. And what his secret is.
How he strives to be FUNctionally fit (note that fun is capitalized) in all areas of his life. I.e. if ENJOYMENT is lacking from any area of his life, he looks to alter that area to a point where he is enjoying it once again.
His struggles with alcohol and how externally it didn’t probably look like he had an issue, but how he had developed a dependency and it was compromising the man he set out to be. And the awesome question that his wife asked him that changed it all.
His experience doing a 10 day silent vipassana meditation. In Thailand.
