Today on the show we have a Q&A session with fitness coach, Chris Spearman. Chris and Ben take this opportunity to share some of the things that they have had on their minds and been talking about in their time together recently. They discuss the idea of community building towards a common goal, aims that reach beyond your personal ambitions and how to be of best service to all those around you. This ties into the conversation about entrepreneurship and online business and how to set yourself apart from the many others that might be trying to do something similar to you in the online space. From there, Ben and Chris segue into a section on mindfulness, meditation, and Dharma before underlying the importance of clear expectations and communication. The last part of the episode is spent considering the place of money in this discussion and how impact and empowerment can trump financial gains when positioned correctly.
