Sometimes, that “edge” you may be looking for ends up providing you with an advantage, but in unexpected ways. That’s just how uncertainty works. This was true for my guest on this episode Drew Taddia. Drew spent many years as a professional baseball player. Being from Canada, one of the disadvantages he had to contend with is not playing as many games as his American counterparts prior to taking a risk and moving to the USA to try his hand at that country’s “greatest pastime”.
Trying to bridge the gap, Drew turned towards nutrition. He started to figure what works (mostly a plant-based whole foods diet). Eventually, these efforts paid off – but not exactly as intended. Drew decided to try his hand at coaching and training others in diet and nutrition. What started off rocky, has turned into a successful career as an author, fitness expert, podcast host and many more things.
Today, Drew joins me for a fun, engaging and informative conversation about:
- Drew’s background story including his baseball career;
- Taking risks;
- Building resilience through:
- Nutrition, particularly of the plant-based (vegan) variety;
- Managing stress
- How to make positive changes that will endure
- Finding a career that you love
- Loads more
It was a blast speaking to Drew and I am sure you’ll find it entertaining and extremely useful.
