Guidelines for talking with clients about politics

August 20, 2018

One of the stark differences between personal training and other healthcare providers is the communication frequency. Most don’t see any healthcare provider more than once every six months. If they do see them often, it’s usually only for a few months. Such as being in physical therapy, or needing some extra dental work done, where […]

Emptying out the mailbag & clearing the history #23

Other mailbags can be found here. Keep in mind a lot of this is email conversations, comment replies, or some random interesting things I’ve found. By their nature they are not as thorough or complete as a post on one topic. Here’s what’s covered in this installment:   Falcon Heavy Thought I was watching a movie: Speaking of rockets, […]

Ramit Sethi’s site, despite the tacky title, I Will Teach You To Be Rich, used to have some solid personal finance info. But in the last few years Ramit’s stuff has wreaked of Manhattanite Syndrome.

Too many personal trainers decide their industry is only for the upper class. I’m looking at you who charges $100 an hour.
