Find your joy: The link between health and entrepreneurial success w/ Martin Pazzani



If there’s one thing we all have in common, it’s aging. No matter how hard we try, we cannot stop the march of time - but there are ways to slow it down.

Martin Pazzani, Chairman and Founder of Act!vate Brain and Body and author of “Secrets of Aging Well: GET OUTSIDE” literally wrote the book on the link between mental and physical aging.

Decades-long experience in health improvement, and a personal passion for entrepreneurship and exercise, has helped Martin illustrate the link between activity and success. 

The value of exercise and reforming social connections isn’t hard to understand - but recognizing how those actions impact the success of an entrepreneur can be challenging.

So, if you’re one of the many entrepreneurs who thinks working longer and harder is the key to success, your mind, body, and company need you to watch this episode!
