    Conversations with Al: What Do You Think of the XFL?

    Conversations with Al: What Do You Think of the XFL?

    Sometimes I feel like my perspective is to narrow. Or I have tunnel vision on specific views. To break from this I like to think about the import little things and how that attention can maybe bring value to someones life.

    Im going off the cuff today and talking about the XFL. Never heard of it? It's a football league.

    Bear with me. As many of you know, I love football. This league is essentially a start league for players that are in NFL free agency. So another wards don't have a team to play for. Or for college players that never got drafted into the NFL or cut from practice squads. And former NFL/College coaches.

    But why was this topic intresting enough for me to make an episode about? The attention and value this league is bringing to these players and coaches. And not only that the fans who love football year round.

    Let me know what you guys this think. Comment, rate, review and ponder this idea.

    Thank you guys for listening :)

    Conversations with Al: The Domain of the Soul

    Conversations with Al: The Domain of the Soul

    Enter "The Domain of the Soul" and excerpt from Ryan Holidays new book "Stillness is the Key".

    Why self-awareness and having patience is important along with experiencing struggle and perseverance. The excerpt above is outlining Tiger Woods great accomplishments on what he was able and still able to do on the golf course.

    Off the the golf course, he was a disaster.

    I like exploring deep within because I find things, habits, and experiences i've done since childhood that may be effecting me as an adult. This is also incredibly hard for me. But feel it's necessary for growth as a person, husband/father, business owner and my health.

    Thank you guys for listening :)

    Understanding Human Performance and Literally Becoming a Better Person with Elliot Kleven

    Understanding Human Performance and Literally Becoming a Better Person with Elliot Kleven

    Welcome to episode #35 of the SLP. Today I’m proud and happy to finally have Fitness Professional Elliot Kleven on the show.

    If I had to pin exactly what I thought was the most import theme of this episode it is being a good human and love your family. What does this have to do with your fitness and health? Everything. “If your family is good, then everything is good.”

    Elliot has been a fitness professional since his early 20’s and and to be honest I don’t see many fitness professionals like him. I do think there is a difference between a Fitness Professional and a Personal Trainer. Elliot checks the box of what it means to care about the craft of physical fitness. His clients with whom he works with and also bringing out the best of his fellow colleagues that train and work under him.

    He has worked with everyone from your everyday person looking to becoming healthier and live a longer life of longevity to professional athletes that want to become better at their sport.

    If I had to explain the situation in sport terms (because I love sports) it would feel along the lines of drafting a top 5 pick or trading for a big name player you know can make an impact for your team and the organization. I’m really proud to introduce him my gym and you guys on this platform.

    This is part 1 of this series with Elliot so please enjoy this episode and thank you guys for listening! :)

    Conversations with Al: The Structure to Any Business

    Conversations with Al: The Structure to Any Business

    Have you ever considered starting a business but not sure where to start? Today’s discussion is all about breaking down my 5 phases I used to build my gym Society Fitness and future projects I’m getting into.

    Over the past 5 years I’ve gone from not exactly sure where to start or running a business. To then structuring the business from learning an watching other business owners/leaders. And lastly building out this philosophy that has worked for my up to this point.

    As tech and certain industries evolve so does the steps within the 5 phases. Example) The internet wasn’t a main driver for developing leads 25 years ago. It now is.

    The reason I built it this way is because it’s simple. Simple to use. Simple to understand. And simple to implement.

    Find your truth. Implement if necessary.

    5 Phases
    Value Creation (Vision + Product)
    Value Delivery (Operations)
    Marketing (Branding + Online/Social Media)
    Sales (Culture)
    Finance (Metrics + Scale)

    Thank you guys for listening and enjoy today’s episode!

    Conversations with Al: Starting a Morning Routine

    Conversations with Al: Starting a Morning Routine

    From time to time I would do different morning routines that I would hear high achieving people do to prime their day

    What I discovered.. It’s all prescription based on what someone is ether suggesting to you or a hack of some sort

    I personally don’t buy hacks. They sound cheap and bring only short term value. I believe in effective and ineffective

    Now just the notion of me saying “morning routine” one might say I have already prescribed to philosophy that’s been around for years. Or when you hear or see my personal morning routine you may be thinking I got this from someone or something

    You are not wrong

    The way i’ve formulated mine is through a collection of various different habits performed in the past that feel and perform the best for me. So I’ve adopted a method based off prior research and me doing

    I also want to inform you this is what works for me. You may or may not decide you like something and that’s your truth

    The purpose of me sharing is to bring light and insight on my particular ideal way to set up my mornings

    The value in this episode comes from hearing and discovering what is your ideal way to set up any routine

    Lastly if you listened to our previous episode about suicide prevention with Richard Robinson you know how sensitive this subject can be and just being aware of it around you and reaching to anyone in need or help could help save a life. We started a fundraiser with the organization To Write Love on Her Arms and a donation link that you can support if you wish until December 1st.
