    Episode Summary
    The Next Evolution of Standing Desks Have Arrived
    I first built myself a standing desk at home in 2012. I then built another standing desk for my day job at the time. Both desks worked well, but they were a bit sloppy.
    Now, I’m using a state of the art adjustable standing desk that provides incredible flexibility, storage, and customization that is wonderful for productivity and my own health.
    In this week’s episode of The 5 AM Miracle Podcast I discuss my new standing desk, as well as how to optimize your office to get more done and stay energized throughout the day.

    In this week’s episode of The 5 AM Miracle Podcast I speak with Marta Zaraska, author of Growing Young, about how friendship, optimism and kindness can change your life in ways you never imagined.

Teaching Moment

I just listened to episode 150, way back from 2016, as part of my binge listening of podcasts interviewing Joshua Becker. It was about my 10th episode, which have all been good, but this one was special because of the action steps Jeff gave at the end. Calling myself a minimalist was not something I had even thought of doing, but know I need to make that shift! Thanks for a great podcast, Jeff!

vitalej17 ,

HANDS DOWN recommend!!

The best part of Jeff's podcast is that, aside from teaching you how to be a phenomenal business owner, he (and his guests) teah you how to be a phenomenal PERSON, which is even better! You'll walk away from each episode having gained more insight into how you can maximize the potential of your business while also maximizing the potetial of yourself - best combo ever!
