Episode 10: Managing Your Energy & Changing Lives "The Goal Outweighs The Instant Gratification"

Updated: Feb 25, 2019


Episode 10

Living in hustle city can be difficult to prioritize and make sure we are taking care to be balanced. Being balanced in physical and mental health, relationships, work, and passion is important to make us effective leaders in our field. Today we talk to a certified personal trainer, online coach, and creator Jake Lospennato. We hit two topics both in the entrepreneurial game of Jake’s transition and movement in his field as well as being physically active to help us have control on our energy when we need it. It’s not easy when we work 14 hour days to find time to work out and to get everything else we need done but I’ve found being active makes me more present and energized to pull off the work load.

Jake went from not being confident or fit in his mental and physical habits through high school and turned to physical performance to create habits to lead him to success and a new business to work from. He try’s to use his coaching and physical programs to get people out of depression and back into the world to crush it. Jake went from working sales to being a personal trainer and hitting online and coaching services to build his income in the career pivot he took into entrepreneurship.
