In this episode I give a little bit of motivation I have been experiencing during my marathon training. The driving factor behind a lot of my self-motivation is from leaders I worked under in the Army. Leadership is the ability to influence through purpose, direction and motivation.
In this episode I touch on a personal topic that I am very familiar with - eating disorders. I experienced a serious eating disorder when I was young that took me years to overcome. I see a lot of the same tendencies and unhealthy relationships with food in the fitness industry.

I couldn't have built and scaled BPN Supplements without the help of my brother, Preston Bare. In this episode we discuss how we first started working together, how our roles have changed within the company and our future goals for forward progression in this industry.
What makes a true leader? What does one act like? In this episode I provide some insight on what I think makes a great leader from my experiences in the military and running a business. Today, social media has a large influence and the position of "leader" is thrown out left and right. I think it is much deeper than perceived online.
