Interview with David Bush, Peak Performance Coach

Today I interviewed my business coach, David Bush, during our weekly 30 minute virtual lifestyle medicine mastermind meeting
 
David was instrumental in helping me to make the needed changes into my life and business to create the results I desired for many years and he’s been a trustworthy friend, leader, coach and mentor of mine over the last 10 yrs.  
 
I asked David questions I commonly hear from health professionals on how to overcome the barriers they face to create extraordinary results in their personal and professional life and how to create optimal health and wellbeing in one’s life by integrating lifestyle medicine into their daily work and life!
 
David Bush is an author, speaker and peak performance coach to thousands of individuals from across the nation. After succeeding as a former All-American collegiate athlete at the University of South Dakota and graduating with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Mass Communication, David pursued a professional football career and landed a starting role with the Iowa Barnstormers of the Arena Football League in Des Moines, Iowa and was the offensive center for Pro Football Hall of Fame Quarterback Kurt Warner.
 
After four years of playing professional football and two trips to the World Championship game, David followed his dreams to become successful in the marketplace. Unfortunately in pursuing success in the marketplace, David sacrificed his physical and mental health to achieve his dreams and in 2007 he suffered two back surgeries that took him out of the game of life.
 
This was David’s wake up call to lose weight, get healthy and to learn to live a more balanced and active lifestyle.  After losing 100 lbs on his journey to Extraordinary Health, David began focusing his efforts on motivating and coaching others to live healthy, successful, and significant lives. 
 
He is now a nationally recognized, Certified Heath and Lifestyle Coach and a leader in the health and wellness coaching industry.  He passionately leads the way for those who wish to succeed in life through improved health and wellness.  David coaches an elite team of personal coaching clients, health professionals and Certified Health Coaches to achieve Extraordinary Health and he speaks to organizations and associations around the country.
 
P.S. David will also be one of our featured speakers at our upcoming 2018 Lifestyle Medicine Seminar in St. Louis on July 19th, 2018 along with 5 other nationally recognized preventative health and business leaders Lynn Steffes, Jamey Schrier, Russ Certo and Staci Lyons.

Interview with Jamey Schrier

On Tue. 6/5/18 at 1:30 pm CT I interviewed Jamey Schrier, PT during our weekly 30 minute virtual lifestyle medicine mastermind meeting. Jamey is a top business consultant and coach to health professionals nationwide, the author of The Automated Practice and the creator of The Practice Freedom Method. Watch preview video here.
 
In 2004, Jamey Schrier was facing the soul-crushing struggles of private practice ownership. He couldn’t figure out how to grow his business without sacrificing his family, income or time. Armed with an insatiable curiosity, Jamey invested the next 9 years and over $300,000, to learn how to free himself from his practice. At the end of his journey, Jamey finally discovered the formula to creating a self-managed, profitable and stable practice that allowed more time with his family and more time to work “on” his business.
 

Today, Jamey is sharing his practice freedom methodology to practice owners all across the country. His book, The Practice Freedom Method: The Practice Owner’s Guide To Work Less, Earn More, And Live Your Passion, has been an Amazon #1 best seller and his online education course, The Automated Private Practice (TAPP), has helped hundreds of overwhelmed practice owners using concrete strategies and business concepts.
