We’re back with Mark Victor Hansen of Chicken Soup For The Soul Fame, and his wife Crystal Hansen, to discuss their health habits for success.

It’s always interesting with high powered couples to hear what habits they share and where they differentiate.

The statement that caught my attention here was Crystal talking about her nutritional journey and us sharing our joy of being foodies.

She said her personal goal and advocacy is to, “Love foods more than you ever have, but just learn to love the foods that love you back.”

That is wise and falls in line with our premise on my True Life podcast that we are and will be creatures of appetite, but the goal is to upgrade our appetites to healthier options.

Don’t miss episode 895 where we talked about the Hansen’s message and new book, Ask – The Bridge from Your Dreams to Your Destiny.

You can get the book at Amazon and then Mark & Crystal invite you to join them at Askthebookclub.com

 INTRO IDEAS/PROMPTS (Choose one or adlib):

Effective work collaboration is vitally important for efficiency and workplace camaraderie. Many collaboration platforms only allow you to organize information, while others only allow for project management. Notion is the one tool for your whole team. You can build a wiki, take notes, push projects forward, all in one place and collaborate on them all to keep your team on track. Paying for all of these single use tools can get costly as well, but Notion does it all.

  • Notion is an all-in-one team collaboration software that combines note-taking, document sharing, wikis, project management and much, much more into one simple, easy-to-use tool.

Every team from engineering to sales can work together seamlessly with Notion’s 500 integrated apps, including Google and Slack.

  • You can collaborate in real time, tailor workflows to your team’s specific needs, and share with ease.

Additionally Notion has a worldwide community of millions of users creating templates, tutorials, and new inspiration so the product is evolving and getting better all the time.
