For two seasons, I worked in professional baseball. I lived in Florida and I was surrounded by millionaire athletes who had so much money that they didn’t know what to do with it. It was fun to go out with them because they would pick up $20,000 tabs and put it on their credit card. But I soon realized that this was a very unfulfilling life. I left baseball and moved back to New York and started praying for God to give me a good job. It didn’t happen. I went a year and a half without much of an income and spent most of my savings, maxed out all of my credit cards trying to figure out what I was called to do. I prayed a lot asking God to reveal to me something great, and then I came across the Holstee Manifesto.  “This is your life. Do what you love, and do it often.” This line sparked something in me. My passion was to help people with their health. That’s what I love to do. And it was that day I chose to commit my life to help people live healthier lives. A few months later, I read the Manifesto again. And this time, the second line hit me. “If you don’t like something, change it.” Health isn’t just about six-pack abs, firm butts, and toned arms. With this realization, I wanted to change how the world perceived health.  I am now on a journey to create a health movement that focuses on health through nurturing the mind, body, and spirit. The Holstee Manifesto challenges me and convicts me every single day!
