ETG Podcast: Episode 14

I started my first blog back in 2008. It was (and still is) a fitness blog where I like to rant about all the bullshit information that’s out there regarding diet and exercise. After venturing out and buying my domain name, I was at a complete loss for what to do. By chance, I had been reading a kick ass fitness blog by Leigh Peele, who just happened to offer consulting.

I spent an hour chatting with her and came away with some great information regarding the wonderful world of blogging. I’ve been reading her blog ever since and she’s even gone on to become a frequent writer for Yaro Starak’s blog,

Of course, none of this has anything to do with this blog. The reason I thought Leigh would be a good fit for an interview here is that she has built up an incredibly loyal readership and is highly passionate about what she does.

She’s also one of those rare individuals who is driven by the process of changing peoples lives for the better. And I don’t mean she just says she wants to do it, she actually works her ass off and does it!

Even if you have no interest in fitness (and honestly, who isn’t interested in being healthier??), you need to read her blog.

She is a phenomenal writer, a diligent researcher, and a true master of her craft.

If you spend some time reading her posts, you will find that she is incredibly passionate about helping people. In my opinion, anyone that can truly help their audience will eventually find success.

I really enjoyed talking with Leigh. Her slow southern draw and laid back style made for a great conversation and I picked up some very interesting ideas.

Here are a few highlights from our call:

  • What she does differently that makes her stand out as a blogger
  • The power of self education
  • How to find and use your “voice” online
  • Why formal education may not help you find that “secure” job you want

I hope you enjoy the interview as much as I did! And please don’t forget to head over to iTunes and subscribe to my Podcast. Thanks!!
