How to Eat Out On A Gluten-free Diet: 3 Bullet-Proof Tips


In the last two weeks I visited 9 cities and towns in 3 countries in Europe, from Tivat in Montenegro – a sweet town in the middle of nowhere, to cities like Gdansk located at Baltic seaside loved by foreign tourists to Manchester and London in the UK. As you can imagine, how I fuel my body was extremely important to me as was coaching, training, being coached, visiting my extended family and dealing with dozens of legal situations connected to consolidating my business.

Compromise: A secret ingredient to every failure


Under a magnifier

Meet Andrea. A successful 30 something girl. We will walk with her through her day today and look for some patterns.

It is Wednesday today, the day when Andrea usually goes for her morning yoga in the park. The classes start at 6.30AM so she still has time for a quick shower before she gets into her office. But not today. Today Matt (well, he’s a ‘keeper’) asked her to accompany him for breakfast as he has some important business growth ideas he needs someone to bounce off.

Of course she said ‘yes’. But also, she didn’t want to miss on her morning workout. 5.30AM her alarm clock rings as she decided to wake up half an hour earlier than usually to go for a quick run.
