SPI 228: Taking Care of Yourself as an Entrepreneur with Jeff McMahon

SPI 228: Taking Care of Yourself as an Entrepreneur with Jeff McMahon

By Pat Flynn on

In my last episode, I asked fourteen of my favorite entrepreneurs what they wish they’d known before starting their own business. Today, I want to explore one of the biggest things I wish I’d known when starting out: how important it is to take care of myself. Here to help me illustrate just how important personal health and fitness can be is my own trainer, Jeff McMahon.

As a virtual trainer, Jeff coaches me via video calls and text messages no matter where in the country I happen to be. We started working together while I was training for my first triathlon, and he’s been holding me accountable to my fitness goals ever since.

It’s easy to let yourself off the hook as a busy entrepreneur. When you’re pouring every spare minute into growing your business, taking a break to visit the gym often feels counter-productive. What I’ve learned, however, is that the time I invest in my health comes back to me ten-fold. The energy, focus, and creativity I gain from staying active and healthy allow me to work better and longer.

If you struggle with staying active and healthy, Jeff’s advice just might change your life. You’ll hear fitness tips you can put into action today, plus advice for crafting your own fitness goals. Ready? Listen in!
