Episode 10: Is Social Media Really Necessary?

Man… we spend so much of our time here. With life happening all around us, most of us would rather live it through the lens of our phones. Or even worse, so many people get so caught up in watching other people lives through their ‘stories’ and glorified highlight reels that they forget to live their own.

In my defense, I was pulling out my phone so I could take a picture of the time (because I ran my record time at this 5k which was so fast that the other cameras may not have gotten it. Definitely faster than @coltpowell 😉)

But really, I’m guilty of it too. That’s why I try to be intentional with the time I spend on my phone, on social media more specifically, especially when I’m spending time with friends or working or reading or doing all the things I enjoyed before social media was even a thing.

Granted, both of my businesses and my ability to reach people all over the world with these messages was enabled through platforms like this – but there’s a time and a place, and you have to monitor the real “why” behind how much time you spend on here.

Here are 3 things I do that I recommend you do if this message speaks to you:

1. Smart phones track how much time you spend on what now (Instagram, Facebook, texting, calling, etc ) so take a weekly inventory and if there are any red flags, address them and work on them.

2. Do regular social media “fasting”. I’ll take 2-3 days entirely off my personal page every week or two so I can refocus on what’s really important.

3. Ask yourself why you even use this platform. Is it benefiting you realistically? Are you benefiting others? If it’s neither, then there’s really no point.

Life’s wayyyy too short to look back and realize you spent most of it scrolling on here.

Episode 9: What You Need to Know About Chiropractors

In this episode, I interview Chiropractor Dr. Shaun Janse Van Rensberg (be careful saying this around him LOL) and ask all the questions everyone else is wondering about the profession and field of Chiropractic Medicine!

  1.       What got you into this field?
  2.       Common misconceptions about chiropractic practice?
  3.       Common injuries?
  4.       What is your most memorable SUCCESS STORY?
  5.       What are some preventative measures for the audience, so they can actually see you less?

The majority of working class citizens, both inactive and active, deal with injuries – whether it’s neck, back, knee or whatever, so this episode will be very valuable to you!

Plus Shaun is from South Africa, so his voice is super cool. ( :

Episode 8: 3 Steps to Establishing Yourself as a Leader

This episode is exactly as it sounds, and it is worth 15 or so minutes of your time!

*There will be an underlying message throughout each step: Servanthood and Humility

1. Learn the work

“Leadership and learning are indispensable to each other.”

John F. Kennedy

  •       Going to a University or Trade School
  •       Hands on experience in the field
  •       Extra-curricular studies
  •       Self- teach
  •       Apprenticeship or internship
  •       Asking for help

2. Do the work

“Leadership is not about a title or a designation. It’s about impact, influence and inspiration. Impact involves getting results, influence is about spreading the passion you have for your work, and you have to inspire team-mates and customers.”

Robin S. Sharma (author of the Leader who had no title and The Monk who sold his Ferrari)

  •       Be the first one in and the last one out – when it counts
  •       Nothing is too small for you right now
  •       Quality over quantity

Step 2 will allow you to gain 2 key leadership characteristics:

  • Confidence – not pride, but self-assurance
  • Competence – the ability to do something successfully or efficiently

3. Teach what you know

“Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.”

Good leadership is about educating and empowering others to be as effective as you are.

Step 3 will allow you to show people your confidence and competence.

  •       Master time management
  •       Ask good questions
  •       Be patient
  •       Show appreciation

“People don’t care how much you know, until they know how much you care”

Episode 7: From Business To Ministry with Pastor Drew King

Pastor Drew is the Chief Business Officer for Celebration Church, a mentor of mine and just a super wise dude.

In this episode, I sit down with Drew to discuss everything from his history as a businessman owning a multimillion dollar company to how he transitioned into ministry as well as how he ended up reading an entire book out loud to his wife! (you need to hear this LOL)

These are the questions I asked him:

  1.       What do you do? (day to day)
  2.       What’s the story of cashing it all in to pursue a career in ministry?
  3.       For others out there, what’s a good way to know when it is “time” to make the switch from business to full time vocational ministry?
  4.       Do you have a personal vision, mission and/or values statement?
  5.       What does it take to help run a megachurch?
  6.       What are common criticisms you hear in your line of work? How do you respond to those with grace?
  7.       What are a few pieces of wisdom you’d like to give the audience? (super good BTW)

This is a very powerful episode, even with a few short complimentary sermons, that you do not want to miss!

Episode 6: Talking Nutrition with Jacksonville Jaguars Dietitian Mindy Black

In Episode 2, we began a conversation on the impact of nutrition on mental health – and covered a ton of great ground.

In this episode, we meet with Mindy Black, who owns the Dieticians of Palm Valley (with Sammy) and is the Dietitian of the Jacksonville Jaguars NFL team.

Mindy tells her story of how she came to be a well known dietitian and have the amazing opportunity to work with an NFL team, as well as common misconceptions in the locker room.

Contrary to popular belief, NFL players struggle with healthy eating like anyone else. Check out this episode to learn about some of the unusual pregame eating rituals they have!

EPISODE 5: 8 Keys To The Perfect One On One Leadership Review

Consistent communication is one of our core values at both Superfit Foods and E3, so it’s important for me to regularly meet with key leaders within our teams and make sure that we are always on the same page.

I’m bias, but I believe this should be a core value within any relationship-based organization no matter what.

At first, it may take more time, because you’ll find you have some catching up to do, but if done consistently – these meetings should only take 20 to 30 minutes. I understand that all key leaders within an organization are oftentimes the busiest, so scheduling more meetings sounds daunting… but this one is worth it.

These are the things that I review with leaders on a regular basis:

  1.       Progress report (of the following calendar week)
  2.       Sales and service initiative (for next calendar week)
  3.       What is the team doing well (this week/month)?
  4.       What can the team do better (to finish the week/month)?
  5.       What are you doing well (this week/month)?
  6.       What can you (meaning your employee) do better (to finish the week/month)?
  7.       What am I doing well?
  8.       What can I (meaning you reading this) do better?

Most humans are inherently conflict avoidant, especially when it comes to their leader – so this conversation allows you both to stay humble and ahead of any potential disputes that can happen within a rapidly growing work place.

Your relationships with your people are everything, and I really believe this conversation will help keep them healthy and productive, so you can all work towards reaching your goals.

Episode 4: Career, Relationships, Fitness, Faith and your Side Hustle

Episode 4 of Live Well Lead Well

WITH ALEX SANFILLIPO PODCAST:

Career, Relationships, Fitness, Faith and your Side Hustle – Balancing all 5 with Alex Sanfillipo

Alex is a good friend of mine and many others, a business leader, an entrepreneur, public speaker, husband, exercise enthusiast and an influential man of God. In addition, he started one of the top Christian blog sites and podcasts in the world – The Daily PS (dailyps.com)

I read an article from Inc Mag recently that was Work, Sleep, Family, Fitness or Friends – pick 3. The article talked about even high performers have to choose 3 out of 5 because they can’t all be balanced in a week.

Knowing that Alex is a high performer who juggles many things well, I asked him his thoughts on the topic, as well as a few other questions:

  1.       So how do you balance everything?
  2.       Is there any one thing that you see that suffers the most from the others?
  3.       Out of everything you do, what are you most passionate about?
  4.       What’s more important: a 1 year plan or a 5 year plan? (and why)
  5.       What is your favorite social media tool and why?
  6.       Do you think there is a correlation between being home schooled and your individual success?
  7.       3 biggest takeaways for our audience

If you don’t know who Alex is, you definitely will within the next 2 to 5 years. Although he may not be huge on social media, he is making a huge difference to countless people across the globe, and I promise his wisdom will add value to anyone who will take the 20 or so minutes to listen!

Episode 1: Who is Jared Graybeal?

Who is Jared Graybeal?

Although writing and talking about myself is always a weird concept to me, Lanie, our amazing Creative Director, thought it would be appropriate to introduce myself in order to kick off hosting a podcast in which I teach people lessons I have learned throughout my life.

There’s no way that my life and the experiences I’ve had, like many other people, can be summed up in a 15 to 20 minute recording… but we did the best we could to introduce a few things:

1)      Basic summary of who I am currently and what I do

2)      Why I decided to invest my time and money on a podcast about leading a good, healthy life

By no means do I think I am any more special than the billions of other humans that God has divinely picked and placed throughout the world, but there’s no arguing that I have lived an interesting life full of failures, pain, happiness, crazy stories and most importantly – powerful learning lessons.

My hope with this podcast (and YouTube channel if you’ve got the time) is to encourage, educate and empower others – through my life experiences, relationships and continued learning – to live and lead their best life.

Much love,

Jared Graybeal
