EP3: How to Build A Lifestyle on Your Terms w/ Dan & Vanessa Hayes (@DanielHayes, @GetSimplifized)

In this third episode of the Empowered Podcast I get to share a conversation that I had with Dan and Vanessa Hayes. We talk about living life how we choose, not how someone chooses for us. They share with me how there is more to life than living in the rat race.

Vanessa, Ellory, and Dan at the Jeff Goins Meetup in Irving, Texas

Dan & Vanessa's Mission:

To lead a simple life in the modern world!

How Dan & Vanessa define empowerment:

Empowerment means that either someone has given me what I need or I've taken it. I own the responsibility – Dan

Empowerment is freedom and having the confidence to make decisions and not having things dicated to me – Vanessa

What Dan, Vanessa and I talked about:

What does a typical day look like for you?

It all depends on the commute. I have a 19-step commute from the back door to the front door of the “world-shedquarters.”

Dan gets up early; before 4:30 and 5 am and spends most of the day in the office.

Vanessa gets the kids out to school and then works out. She focuses on boundaries so she can focus.

What are you doing today that will keep you moving forward tomorrow?

We are looking to expand our podcast and the community around it. We will grow our coaching clients and start a mastermind group. We are going to start speaking

How do you unwind and relax?

We take bike rides and float down the river while doing “strategic planning”.

What was the last movie you saw?

“I Am”

EPIC Question: What is one tip, or one piece of advice you can give people who are just starting?

Do a life plan. Look at what you want your life to be like. Start moving. Start writing. Just start doing something.
