    Ketones… NOT Keto with Michael Brandt

    Ketones… NOT Keto with Michael Brandt

    H.V.M.N. is a company that believes that everything you put into your body has an important role in your longevity, performance, and overall health. In this episode of The Success Lift Podcast, Brian welcomes Michael Brandt, co-Founder, and CEO of H.V.M.N. to discuss the benefits of ketones. A natural source of fuel for the body, ketones are known to create energy not only for the body but also for the brain.
    Michael explains that following a nutrition philosophy enriched with ketones is different from following the keto diet – but they can be used in combination to create optimal results. Ketones can be measured in several ways, are a key biomarker of our health, and, according to research, can help with some diseases such as Alzheimer's. Tune in to learn more about ketones and H.V.M.N.’s mission.
    Key Highlights
    Ketones can – and should – be used in combination with some other important daily habits and also a nutritious diet; Using ketones is a tool in the toolbox to optimize health: it creates energy within the body while consuming less oxygen; Having a strong foundation in our health is a key step to living longer, feeling good, and performing better; We shouldn’t be focusing only on work all the time the same way we shouldn’t be relaxing all the time – it’s important to have balance in life; Related Links

    Lessons from Montana

    Lessons from Montana

    After a getaway with his wife, Brian has some advice for you. In this episode of The Success Lift Podcast, he speaks about the importance of taking a break from the business, the routine, and even from your kids, and just getting away for a while. With half of the year gone already, we should all reserve some time to reset, replenish and prepare for the rest of the year. This pause will only do good.
    Brian shares what he has learned from his trip to Montana and some essential tips to implement once you are in trip mode. Enjoying nature, appreciating the little moments, disconnecting from social media, and adopting new habits are just a few of these tips. Daily obligations and busy routines can be very tiring – especially if you have to balance it all: a household, a job, parenthood, and fitness.
    Key Highlights
    Eating healthy while traveling is as important as it is when following a routine; Nature is too beautiful not to be appreciated. Go out, take a walk, and watch the sun and the trees, even if you do it between tasks; Connecting with like-minded people while traveling is a smart way to come back to the routine refreshed and with new ideas.

    Your Actions Tell a Story with Mike Millner

    Your Actions Tell a Story with Mike Millner

    In this episode of The Success Lift Podcast, Brian welcomes Mike Millner to talk all things mindset, fitness, healthy habits, and tracking goals without obsessing about it. Mike’s content on social media – via Instagram, e-mail marketing, or podcasting – is the perfect combination of personal & physical development with the true concept of fitness. Today, Mike dives deep into this combination to give us the best tips.
    Mike explains that in order to make progress with fitness, the routine doesn’t necessarily need to be perfect. Rather than having a bulletproof plan, we need to focus on consistency, daily and easy-to-follow habits, and willpower. Throughout the conversation, Mike also talks about this idea of ‘minimal effective dose’, which means doing the basic and the little things that actually work in order to achieve goals.
    Key Highlights
    Mike is extremely result-driven, but when it comes to fitness he explains that we have to play the long game and be patient with goals; No matter how bad the day goes, it’s important to choose 1 to 3 things to accomplish regardless; Don’t obsess over data; drop the idea of tracking data just to feel good and instead track data that is actually important; Once you define success, you define failure.
