What if you could transform your life for the better? If you could pivot 180 degrees from an old way of living and jump headfirst into a much more fulfilling one, you’ll see that it takes courage, constant adjustment and a whole heap of trust- especially in yourself.
Welcome to Should I Start A Podcast
where each week Ronsley Vaz, with the help of a star-studded entrepreneurial guest lineup, explores why you should start a podcast; build an audience, and how to keep them hungry for more.
If you’re thinking about starting a podcast or simply looking for a better way to get your message out to your audience, then this is the podcast for you.
This week Ronsley chats with his good buddy, Chris Dufey. Chris is a fitness trainer, podcaster, author, international speaker, ice cream enthusiast and a budding documentary filmmaker.
In 2014, Chris quit the gym. Why? Because he wasn’t part of a life worth living anymore.
Chris had spent eight years building his career as a personal trainer. His diary was always full and the money coming in per client was enviable- he had definitely made it. Even though he loved the success, something just wasn’t right.
It wasn’t until he realised that he was missing precious moments with his daughter because of his persistent and gruelling schedule that the guilt set in. He needed to mix things up drastically if he wanted to have a fulfilling life.
Chris is now the CEO and Founder of Coaches Cartel, a multi-million dollar company that helps other personal trainers win in all aspects of their careers and lives. Alongside his business, he also hosts the Ask The Pro Podcast, which helps people build a business, lifestyle and freedom. His most recent documentary project, Fit Pro Documentary is now available to stream for free.
Ronsley and Chris explore how to create a life worth living, and the drastic changes Chris had to get through to reach that point. They take a look at why liking yourself is so important, and how Chris left everything behind (literally) to fly off into another world.
