[Podcast] Ep117 Q&A: Career vs. Family + the Future of Fitness In Post

This episode is the latest Q&A episode with my trusty sidekick Natalie Boschan, and in this episode we answer the question “How do I know when it’s worth it to take a great career opportunity that might mean sacrificing time with my family?” plus I reveal big news for the future of the Fitness In Post program.

Spoiler Alert: This is the final episode of the Fitness In Post podcast.

Now before you get too upset, the reason is not because I’m giving up this podcast for good or that I’m no longer interested in finding solutions to the health problems we all face as creative professionals chained to a desk all day long…in fact it’s quite the opposite. Over the coming months I plan to broaden my search and provide even more resources to this community via the podcast, the blog, as well as new online training programs I’m creating that go way beyond what I offer in the Move Yourself program.

So on that note, I am announcing to you my loyal listeners before anyone else that Fitness In Post is becoming Optimize Yourself.

Natalie and I talk a lot more about the thinking behind this change and what this will mean over the coming months, but in short this means there will be some down time for the podcast as I make this change, especially given that as I write this I’m editing a tv pilot for NBC Universal 6 days a week and my schedule is batshit crazy. On top of that I will be overlapping this pilot with a tv series for several weeks too, so if I intend to maintain my sanity as well as see my kids on occasion, my only choice is to take it slowly if I want to do this rebrand right.

So all I ask is that you are patient as this transition occurs to the new website and the new podcast.
