Well fam, I have two pretty big announcements I wanted to share with you today…

The first is that Michelle and I have spent the past week recovering from Covid, but as the over-achiever I am, just getting Covid wasn’t enough. I had to go all-in, so I went ahead and got the regular flu at the same time.

I came down with a really severe fever for two days that went as high as 103.8 which was the regular flu, and then Covid kicked in which was marked by a constant low grade fever, and difficulty breathing.

Michelle lost her sense of taste and smell, but I retained mine.

Thankfully we have the support of some incredible doctors who took amazing care of us.

We took all of the supplements you can imagine, and they also put us on prescriptions for Ivermectin and Hydroxy Chlorochine.

The worst part was a three day period where it was getting increasingly difficult to breath.

If you think you have Covid, you want to jump on Amazon or have someone run down to the local drug store to get you a blood oxygen meter and a nebulizer.

If your 02 level gets down to 93 or less, it’s time to head to the hospital which is what we did next.

My primary concern was that I was coming down with pneumonia, so we had a CT scan.

Thankfully it was just Covid, so we started nebulizing glutathione, ionic silver, and a steroid to help open the lungs which is what did the trick.

Overall, we spent about 9 days laying in bed, but thankfully we’re about 95% recovered at this point. Michelle’s smell and taste came back, and I’m breathing normally once again.

So what is the big takeaway from this experience?

If you take care of your body, it will take care of you.

If your body had a voice, and if you could have a conversation with it, what would it say to you? Would it say thank you, or would it beg you to stop filling it with poisons like alcohol, sugar, or processed foods?

Grab a piece of paper, and write down this question… What does my body desperately want me to know?

And simply write out everything that comes up.

What you learn here has the power to completely change your life if you’re willing to listen.

Now that brings us to my second piece of news…

After 7 years, and over 350 episodes I am going to take a break from this podcast as of today.

The show will be back, but I don’t know when.

All I know is that over the past year, my passion for this show had turned into an obligation. I was producing it every week because I felt like I had to.

If you’ve been a listener for a while, you know that I’ve been going through a massive transition in my life over the past few years, and who I am today, is completely different than who I was when I started this show under the Self Made Man title in 2014.

Traditionally, this has been a show about entrepreneurship, marketing, and business, and after the past few years I’ve had, I can tell you that the absolute last thing I give a crap about right now is marketing and business.

The world is changing before our very eyes in ways that will forever change the course of humanity, and turning a blind eye to these topics in order to talk about business, online marketing, or funnels because that’s what this show has always been about, literally makes me want to puke, and I just can’t do it any more.

So I’m going to take some time off to think about what I want to stand for, how I want to lead, and what the purpose of this show will become moving forward.

I can tell you one thing for sure…

When it does come back, it will be bigger and better than ever. We’re in the process of looking for a video studio here in Austin, and my goal is to have the deepest, most meaningful conversations possible, with the world’s most inspiring people.

So thank you for listening, and for your support. It’s been an incredible 7 years. If you’ve enjoyed the show and the amazing guests who’ve shared their time here, it would mean the world to me if you’d be willing to leave a comment in the review section to let me know that it mattered to you, and that it made a difference in your life.
