How to design a life you never want to escape from.

Dai Manuel is truly one of my favorite people- and I’ll have him back on the show as much as I can. We interviewed him way back on Episodes 89 and 112 (don’t ask me why our former podcast production company put the 2 part episode live with other shows in between but oh well.) where we talked about his original fitness/weight loss story– he was an obese teenager, hard to believe when you see him today. 
What I know about Dai is that he’s not only a leader from a fitness/health perspective, he’s truly a leader in – how to live a LIFE by design. This guy left his retail business – one that was very successful– to venture out into what he and his family REALLY wanted to do- explore the U.S. and Canada. Then they ended up visiting Bali and — moving there for 3+ years….he found a way to make his income all online, serving others and showing THEM how to do their own version of life by design just like Dai did. 
I am constantly inspired by Dai, by his relationship with his beautiful wife and his affection for his kids. I’m blown away by his insights on life and the human experience and frankly- he’s now a huge inspiration to me as I’m currently designing my own solopreneur experience for the first time ever– when I’ve been doing the “running a COMPANY” thing for close to a decade. I may be hiring Dai soon to guide me. What a beautiful thing and I cannot imagine a better teacher. 
I know you’ll love Dai as much as I do after you get to know him here and in the past 2 episodes recorded a while back! ENJOY!
