Real Heath Plus – How Badly Do You REALLY Want That New Year’s Resolution?

Happy New Year!!

LOL I know it’s waaaaaaay past that! It’s already February! But it’s my first podcast of 2018 so it feels rather incomplete starting it without the wish.

As a first episode of the new year, I thought I’d tackle the New Year Resolution… perhaps too much of an obvious choice but here’s why: As we begin February, some of you will be on track with the goals that you set for the year, however, most of you would have started out with a bang but your thunder is barely a fizzle by now and you somehow sunk back into old – and bad – habits, leaving you feeling somewhat demoralized and despondent because change can often be so darn hard and habits only for with consistency! If this is you (or at least to some extent) then chin up champ, you still have 11 months to achieve what you set out to!!!

Life Coach, Roz Sandham, gives us some practical insights into setting New Year’s resolutions that can actually be realized and it starts with getting REAL!

The Grey Ave Podcast – Steve Distante

Steve DIstante is an Entrepreneur and car aficionado from Long Island, New York. He started his first business when he was only 5 years old. He is the CEO of Vanderbilt Securities LLC, member of Long Island Exotics Club and an incoming president of Entrepreneurs Organization(EO)

I was fascinated by his love and enthusiasm for electric vehicles(EV). He owns the model S, P90D with Ludacris mode, The Roadster 2010 and other non-teslas. The first part, We talked about his experience with the cars among other things. One of his car’s number plate is “USA FAN, THE EMPIRE STATE, ZERO EMISSIONS”

This Podcast is relevant on so many levels, its appeals to car geeks, electric car geeks and electric car doubters. I asked Steve the questions that the above groups might ask and his answers are definitely valid because he plays with these toys. It was a fascinating talk really.

I did a part 2 with Steve where we talked about Entrepreneurship, his advice and philosophies are quite unconventional and profound. I recommend that you check it out and subscribe.
