When I joined EO, I was 75 pounds heavier than I am today. I remember sitting at a Warren Rustand event with a beer in my hand thinking to myself, why are all these successful entrepreneurs in shape, and I’m the only fatso in the room?
The problem was that I was completely unaware that I was obese. Sure, I knew that I was fatter than I would like to be, but I focused on my business and I didn’t think that my health impacted the way I showed up in the business. Making my business the number-one priority before my personal well-being held us back.
