About the episode:

In today’s episode, I had a conversation with Frank Agzarian, Beyond Macros’ first coach other than myself, about two topics I am passionate about – travel and personal finances.

As a general rule, we encourage our clients at Beyond Macros to take steps to manage their stress levels. Reducing financial stress and traveling are two amazing ways to achieve those ends.
I especially encourage all of my competitive athlete clients to take time during the off-season to decompress mentally and emotionally and get their ducks in a row financially so they can make the sacrifices necessary during their season.

Sometimes this means stepping away from training and rigid nutritional guidelines!

I feel fortunate to have Frank on our coaching staff and to have had this conversation with him while he’s on a month-long trip to Mexico.

Just a disclaimer, neither Frank nor I are investment advisors and don’t pretend to be. We are fitness professionals and what we talk about is simply anecdotal and is not intended to serve as investment advice. Take anything we say with a grain of salt, and do your own research before making any investments of your own!
