Courtney Carver shares how she manages to do things that she doesn't really want to do.

Episode 518: I Don't Want to Eat This Way by Courtney Carver of Be More With Less (Self Discipline Habits for a Healthy Life).

Courtney Carver was stopped in her tracks with a scary MS diagnosis after decades of debt, discontent, and trying to do it all. She had to slow down, prioritize her health, and figure out what was really important in her life. She discovered what mattered most by getting rid of everything that didn’t matter at all. In the end it all came down to love and health.
She went from a busy, overwhelmed advertising director to spending 2-3 hours every morning taking care of herself, loving her work, and being present and engaged with the people she loves. Her family changed, too. They moved from wanting bigger closets, nicer furniture, and more stuff to downsizing into a 750 sq. ft apartment with no storage.
Courtney has written books, courses, and hundreds of articles to help you simplify your life and work so you can focus on what really matters.

Steve Kamb of Nerd Fitness shares how to do a proper pull up and why you need to do them.

Episode 513: How To Do a Proper Pull Up and Why You Need To Do Them by Steve Kamb - Nerd Fitness (Perfecting Exercise Routines).

Steve Kamb started exercising back in high school without really knowing what he was doing. Through high school and college, he made every training mistake known to man and got zero results. It wasn’t until he graduated college and learned the right way to train that he started to see positive changes.
He's a nerd, but likes fitness… so why not combine the two and turn life into one giant video game?
And thus, in the fall of 2009, NerdFitness.com was born!

Mr. Money Mustache shares the simplest prescription for better health you'll ever hear.

Episode 511: An Amazing New Prescription Medication by Mr. Money Mustache of MrMoneyMustache.com (Walking to Lose Weight & Improve).

Mr. Money Mustache is a thirty-something retiree who now writes about how we can all live a frugal, yet awesome, life of leisure.
He and his wife studied engineering and computer science in Canada, then worked in standard tech-industry cubicle jobs in various locations throughout the late ’90s and early 2000s.
Then they retired from real work way back in 2005 in order to start a family. This was achieved not through luck or amazing skill, but simply by living a lifestyle about 50% less expensive than most of their peers and investing the surplus in very boring conservative Vanguard index funds and a rental house or two.
