Intro:

You're listening to the military millionaire podcast, a show about real estate investing for the working class.

David:

Hey, what's up everybody? It's Dave from military to millionaire.

So today I've got an exciting episode with Chad Molyneux. And I hope I said that right. He is a fitness expert for entrepreneurs. And we've been following each other for a little while here.

And I've really kind of like seeing some of his stuff as far as tips for just helping entrepreneurs get in shape, because let's be honest, we have a whole different lifestyle. So that'd be right.

Chad, let's hear your story and hear a little bit about what you are talking about?

Chad:

What’s up David, what's up guys, thank you for having me on. And yeah, so we'll start off with how I actually got into fitness.

So I got into fitness around eighth grade. And when I grew up, I had one passion, was playing lacrosse. I sucked at school, I was told I needed to repeat the grade in 12th grade. I was actually held at gunpoint by two cops because I was just a complete shithead growing up I got in trouble a lot. But if there was one thing I was super passionate about and actually good at it was the cross. And also, it was the one thing I could connect with my father on as well.

But, um, I was the only goalie in town. So I was the only idiot that was not stupid enough to flinch when when the ball was shot at him. So they're like, okay, you're gonna be the goalie. So I got to start all of the games, I got to play on all the best teams until eighth grade.

In eighth grade, I had my first taste of competition in life, and somebody else decided they want to play goalie, too. So during tryouts, you know it is going back and forth. And then the day came where we figured out what teams were on. So it's refreshing the email, refreshing the email, and I figured out I was on the beat team and I was crushed. Because like I said,
I put my, I wrapped my identity all into a cross was the one thing I was good at is the one thing I enjoyed. And I was crushed when I figured out that I wasn't gonna play on the best teams anymore.

So in that moment, I had a realization that one, I didn't prepare myself, two, put myself in a position to actually stay in and keep my spot. So I told myself that I will never lose in life again, because I was not physically prepared. And I asked my dad, I was like, Hey, Dad, I need to get more physically fit, I need to get faster, I need to get stronger. If I want to get my spot back, can you help me out.

So the next day he comes home with a jump rope, he comes home with an agility ladder. And he comes home with a very old set of dumbbells from my uncle. So every day after school, I would go down into the garage. And I would just start figuring this stuff out. Because this was new to me, I literally had no idea anything about health and fitness. So I would look up on YouTube, like how to use the agility ladder, jump rope, how to use the dumbbells properly. And I basically taught myself a lot of things in health and fitness from that perspective.

But over the course I actually got to play two years of college lacrosse as well. So I did get my spot back. And I did actually end up to go play college. But over the course of the 14 years that I played lacrosse, I found that I loved training for lacrosse more than I actually loved playing for it, I would actually look forward to the offseason. Because I was like, oh, I get to play with the weights, I get to improve it. That's why I loved it so much. It was about self growth.

So two years into college, when I decided I wasn't going to play lacrosse anymore, I found entrepreneurship. And my girlfriend at the time started showing you all these YouTubers who are doing this online fitness coding thing, and I was like, Oh, I can totally do that. And in my head, I was like I can make this happen in three months, like I'm going to go full time, this is going to be an awesome business. And that three months turned into about three years until I was able to go full time. And part of that was my problem too. Because I was so egotistical, I was like I don't need help from anybody. But then eventually I did invest in a coach that allowed me to expedite the process and go full time. But the reason I decided that I wanted to work with entrepreneurs is because really, really two reasons health and entrepreneurship are very, very similar.

The journey of getting fit and healthy and the journey of growing a business are very similar. There's a lot of parallels. And the two together really symbolized one thing that I'm all about which is self growth. So I was like, if I can take these two loves that I have entrepreneurship and health and fitness and bring them together to ultimately allow people to grow into their best selves. That would be fucking awesome. So then I started what's called the health and wealth blueprint which is a program designed for the busy professional, the entrepreneur, the person working 60 plus hours a week and what it focuses on as it focuses on how to optimize their health so that they can create the greatest impact and income in the world.

05:00 - 10:00

David:

So tell us a little bit about the health and wealth blueprint. You gave us the two second spiel there but like what would be your advice for someone looking to start out? I mean, I guess you could just say, check out the health and wealth blueprint.
Chad:

Absolutely the first thing in anything in any area of your life that you're unsure about, I'm all about coaching.

Like I said, when I was growing my business for two and a half years, I couldn't do, I couldn't figure it out at all. I was like, but in my head, I was like, I could do this, like I was the lone wolf. And I let my ego build a wall in front of the results, the ego is blocking you from getting results. But when I decided that I was going to invest in a coach, like I said, it took me six months to get full time two and a half years on my own. But I traded my dollars for my time back, and then six months expedited the process, and I was able to go full time. And now I'm in the six figure earning club and this year, obviously plan on expanding on that.

But coaching, like I said, it's really trading your money to get your time back. And I would recommend that for anybody looking to get healthy and to get fit, it would be to find a coach, find somebody that has the results that you want, and then trust their process and just follow it. And at that point, you don't have to stress about it. All you have to do is put in the work. And then they're providing you the strategy.

David:

I would agree with that.

People talk about things like consulting and stuff. And it's like, you know, do you need to spend the money for consulting? Maybe not. But if you want to get there a lot faster, because time is the one thing that you can't you can't get any more back.

Chad:

Yeah, dude, this year, I spent roughly about $30,000 in coaching. I'm all about it.

David:

Yeah, definitely trying to go to some conferences, and I can go to conferences in like two weeks.

Chad:

I’m going to one later today.

David:

Nice.

Chad:

I'm flying out at 5pm.

David:

Nice. Nice. That's exciting.

I'm excited. I just told him. I'm getting stationed in San Diego here in like June.

Chad:

That's where I'm going today.

David:

Oh, and so there's a ton of conventions out there. And I was like, yeah, no longer, you know, from Hawaii, flights are really expensive. So I've had to miss a lot of stuff. There's not a whole lot of conventions out here, because there's no way anyone else can make it here.

Chad:

Right.

David:

But yeah, I'm excited to live in like the mecca of conferences. So.

Chad:

Yeah, it's cool. I actually this one I'm actually speaking at and then I'm going to 10 X in February, and then I'm going to another one.

David:

I will see you there at 10 X. That's where I'm headed.

Chad:

Hey, let's do it. Fire up. I'm excited for that one for 10 X.

Alright. back to health and fitness.

David:

Yes.

Chad:

We're getting off track.

David:

Yeah, Chad, but there's not enough time in the day.

Chad:

Let's do it. Let's do it. This is the number one excuse.

Okay, so this is where there's two angles to hit the set. So I'll hit them. I'll hit them both.

Number one, when you say you don't have time, in my opinion, if you don't have the right strategy for your busy lifestyle, right. And society always says this is kind of like the norm for health and fitness, you need to get your 60 minutes a day. And so everybody thinks, okay, well, if I want to get realistic results, then I must work out 60 minutes a day, which is totally not true. And here's a perspective that your listeners will understand.

So when you're growing your business, it's not about how many hours you spend in your business, right? It's about how productive you are with your time. Same is true in health and fitness. It's not about how long you're in the gym, because you could be in the gym, checking out girls on your phone, just doing a couple bicep curls and taking a selfie. It's actually about how intense you're spending your time in the gym, and our number one. So the way that we structure our program is we ask them, how much time can you give to exercise, our number one timeframe is 15 to 25 minute workout programs, they do five workouts a week that are 15 to 25 minutes, that's 75 minutes or so yeah, 75 minutes out of your week, which is an hour and 15 out of your week, and we have 168 hours a week, you could find you could find an hour and 15 out of out of your whole entire week, you could find 15 minutes in a day. And with those 15 minutes, because it's so convinced it needs to be a lot more intense.

So it's a lot more hit training, high intensity interval training. And to give you an example, David, I can give you a five minute workout right now that would crush you. I literally could just say do five minutes straight of burpees. Try to get as many burpees as you can with as little rest as possible.

David:

You'll be crushing my soul before I even start.

Chad:

So it's not about how long you're spending in the gym. It's what you're doing with your time. So that's one angle.

Another angle is you are your mindsets wrong. You're not viewing health and fitness as an investment into your business. you're viewing it as an expense to your business. You're thinking that you're spending time in the gym is taking away from your dollars is taking away from your business, but in actuality you're getting healthy, you're getting fit. That's increasing your energy, that's increasing your productivity. That's increasing your confidence, that's increasing your longevity, which are all things, all intangibles that you need in order to grow your business.

10:00 - 15:00

David:

No, that's solid. Yeah, I like the way you phrase that.

Gym is an investment, not an expense, because you're right when you work out, I mean, when I was running, you know, well, I mean, I shouldn't say when I was running that much the amount of time that it took to run 35 miles in a week did did detract a little bit. But it was fun. But when I was in that kind of fit, I kind of shape. You know, I had so much more energy than when I, you know, got hurt. And I'm laying around the house. Yes. Like, I've got all the time in the world now. I'm broken. I'm laying in bed. Oh, look, yeah, you know, I'm miserable. And I'm eating junk food. And I'm not exercising, and I was much less productive, even though I had way more time.

Chad:

Absolutely, yeah, man. And that's what it's about. Once you can shift that mindset and view as something that's going to better your business, then you'll find time for it. Because we always find time for what we are deemed to be a priority. And once you view this as a priority, you'll fit in the 15 minutes, you'll fit in the 30 minutes, or whatever it is, you feel like you have to do and I actually did a live yesterday on this, but I did some research on like the top CEOs and their workout regimens. And like people like Mark Cuban, he works out six times a week he tries to get an hour of cardio in a day. I mean, you got people like Mark Zuckerberg, who says that, at a bare minimum, he must work out three times a week.

There was one one lady I forgot her name. But she said she actually no, what's his name? Oh, Tim Cook, the CEO, the now CEO of Apple, he works out six times a week as well. He goes to the gym at 4:30. And you can just see that the people that we inspire to be at a financial level. They're all prioritizing their health, because they understand the importance of it.

David:

Yeah, but good as being rich, if you can't be around long enough to enjoy it. Right?

Chad:

Yeah, or be spending all your money on medical bills.

David:

That's true. That's much more expensive.

Okay, so I know we got to get off here in a little bit cute, popular guy. But one more question for you.

Chad:

Yeah, let’s do it.

David:

The nutrition side of things, what stuff would you recommend?

Chad:

Okay, this is going to be something that you've probably never heard of before.

So one of the things that we do in the health and wealth blueprint is we teach them how to outsource, right, because as a CEO, as a business professional, they need to delegate and outsource things in their business, they also have to do that in their health and fitness.

So the number one thing that entrepreneurs need to focus on is making healthy food convenient. And what I mean by that is, or actually, the best way to do that is to hire a meal prep service. So I've done this for myself, I've noticed that my lunches are typically the least convenient option in my day. So I've hired somebody to create lunches for me a week. Literally, they prepare them, they cook them, they make sure they're healthy, they deliver them to my house, all I have to do at that point is eat, which takes what that takes 15 minutes out of my day opposed to actually cooking the meal or finding a place to get it that could take 30 to 45 minutes out of your day.

So you've got to make healthy food convenient, because if you don't, then what types of foods are typically convenient, the unhealthy options. That's my number one recommendation for entrepreneurs is to make healthy food convenient by outsourcing it either to a meal prep company, or outsourcing it to an assistant to cook all your meals for you.

Yeah, that's, that's my number one tip.

David:

That's huge. Because you're right, there's definitely times where I come home. And I'm like, Yeah, I got this awesome lunch in mind, I'm gonna make this great stuff. And then I look at my watch. And I'm like, you know, if I do that, I'm not going to have time to edit the video I need to edit. Alright, well, you know what, I'll grab McDonald's on the way to work or I'll grab a skip lunch or I'll do you know, whatever.

It's very rare that the option is to grab an apple instead. You know? Yeah. Which is what it should be right? Well, maybe not. should be. It should be more than just an apple. But...

Chad:

Yeah, but it's better than nothing.

David:

Yeah, it's better than Taco Bell, which is kind of like a...

Chad:

That's something I noticed a lot too, because we do a lot in our first 12 week program. We do a lot with calories. And and I always thought like, oh, these guys are probably way over eating. They're actually way under eating. And calories are energy, right?

So if you're under eating you're on in calories, how is that affecting your energy levels, it's affecting them greatly. And also the opposite is true. If you're overeating calories, if you're way in a caloric surplus like you that you shouldn't be in you're also going to feel groggy and tired. And to give you an example, how do you feel after thanksgiving dinner? You just want to go to sleep right? So there's a sweet spot for how much food and calories you should be consuming that will hit your energy levels.

David:

That's awesome.

Awesome, hey I know you don't have too much time. So any last minute words of wisdom before we plug where to find you?

15:00 - 17:56

Chad:

Last minute words of wisdom would be I challenge everybody in 2019 to look at their health as something as a part of their business like we talked about before as an investment into their business as something that is going to elevate their game because ultimately, you're the leader in your business, right?

So what kind of example are you setting for your team? What kind of example? are you setting for your followers? Do you want your followers to have high energy? Do you want your team to have high energy? Do you want them to be producing at a high level? And the answer is yes.

So why don't you use it with yourself? Focus on your health and let that bleed through.

David:

Awesome. Yeah, absolutely. And investment in yourself and investment in your health. And, you know, at the end of the day, like you said, confidence, you'll feel better, you won't be as lethargic.

Chad:

Yep.

David:

But the other thing, and this is something that, you know, in the world of fat shaming, no one wants to say, but when you're looking at someone as like a public figure and a public speaker, whether people like it or not, yeah, physically attractive does a lot for first impressions, right?

Chad:

It's marketing.

David:

Yeah, like who you know, oh, buy my awesome product, I look like yeah pounds overweight is just as bad as wearing a wife beater onstage.

Chad:

Yeah, I just signed a client yesterday who sells health products, but doesn't look healthy. He was like, This is not right. Like, you need to get me right. I was like, we got you, bro. We got to go work.

But yeah, you're totally right, man. Like, we do judge books by their cover. And when we look at somebody, we see that they can't take care of themselves. It immediately lowers our trust level for them. It immediately puts them as less of an authority because they can't even they can't even trust themselves enough to take care of their most basic human need, which is their health.

David:

Yeah.

Chad:

Yeah. 100%

David:

Being like an asshole. I get it. But you know, sometimes the truth hurts.

Chad:

I tell the truth all the time. And I've made posts like that, and I get a lot of flack for it.

David:

But you know what, though, the world needs to hear things they don't want to hear. It's called parenting.

Chad:

Yep.

David:

You know, that's what we do for kids. That's what you would expect we do for leaders.

So if you can't, can't take it, right, like, how are you supposed to lead?

Chad:

You can't take it, you ain't gonna make it.

David:

Yep, I like it. All right. Hey, I know you got it run. So thank you for joining us. But where can people find more about your program?

Chad:

Yeah, so our program is actually a pretty extensive application process. But what I'll do for you is I'll give you my Facebook link, because that's where I'm most popular right now.

I'll give you my email, anybody's interested in hopping on a 10 minute call with me just to chit chat about your health, your goals, your challenges and your needs, then you can just shoot me an email and I'll give you my email as well. So that'd be in the show notes.

David:

Chad:

All right. Let's go dude. Thank you for having me.

David:

Chad:

David:
