-Coaching Endorsement from Kyle, 43, from Madison, Alabama

“As the father to a toddler and a 5-month old I found myself overwhelmed and with plenty of excuses to not take care of myself. I knew I needed to address this lack of activity in my life. It was about this time that Scott released his book, Movement and Meaning. Hoping to find some motivation inside, I decided to read the book. I soon discovered that the mental/emotional benefits to being active were just as, if not more, important than the physical benefits.

This provided the spark I needed and I was quickly back to regular exercise again (weights, swimming, yoga) and feeling so much better. Feeling better, I soon found myself with the energy to pursue interests I’ve had for years, but wasn’t exactly sure where to start. So when I noticed that Scott was offering consulting/coaching I decided that an experienced/outside assessment into my situation could be very beneficial.

Not living local to Scott, we coordinated a phone call. This initial phone call involved Scott asking me detailed questions regarding what I value, where/what I’m currently spending my time on, and what I want out of life…and what I want to change or feel like needs to change. After a detailed discussion answering Scott’s questions the phone call was concluded.

Days later Scott delivered a document to me that included:

* A recap/outline of our recent conversation
* List of my values and instructions/suggestions on how to ensure my time and energy is being spent on said values
* Useful insight on how to develop new/more productive habits in my life that revolve around my values

Though challenging, I found Scott’s assessment and recommendations to be very positive, encouraging, and insightful.”  –Kyle

Foreword for ‘Healthy Work’ by Scott Godwin

As someone who at 73 is asked almost daily by friends “When are you going to stop working?” my answer is “I don’t know”. I honestly don’t know because my wife (who works with me) and I rarely think about it, since our work is such an enjoyable part of our life. Working and contributing is part of who we are and what we’re all about.

Scott Godwin’s book Healthy Work identifies how all people of all backgrounds and education levels, even in the latter stage of their life, can find work a healthy and rewarding endeavor. We feel so rewarded when we help a client work through a complex, difficult situation and when we see a project through to the end. It provides my wife and me a meaningful purpose. There is an irreplaceable feeling of satisfaction in getting the job done right and doing the best we can every time.

Yes, work can most certainly be both healthy and fun at the same time and it’s a joyful thing when approached the right way. This superb book will show you how to get there in your own working life.

I couldn’t recommend more to study this book carefully and re-read it again and again, using it as a lifetime guide to find Healthy Work in your life.

Foreword for ‘3.0 Nutrition: Eating Better than Ever’ by Scott Godwin 
by Victor Corrigan MD FACC

    I have practiced Cardiovascular Medicine in a busy Metropolitan setting, Atlanta, for over 30 years and not a day goes by in which a patient does not ask me- “What is a healthy diet?”  The question is of upmost importance.  Scott Godwin’s book “3.0 Nutrition: Eating Better Than Ever”  answers that question and more, providing an accessible overview of healthy eating  and nutrition. 

    There is a serious epidemic of obesity in the USA. According to the CDC,  more than 72 million U.S. adults are obese.   Diet and weight are a contributing factor for many health problems, including heart disease, stroke, diabetes and some types of cancer.  Persons who are obese have medical costs which are $1, 429 higher than those of normal weight. No state has an obesity rate less than 15%, the national goal.  We have a public health crisis and we need to do better.  

    This book, 3.0 Nutrition: Eating Better Than Ever, is a superb resource for patients like mine and the general public who want to learn more about how to eat better and manage their weight.  It provides many simple tips and has an easy structure to follow to improve your eating.
    Eating right is integral to a healthy life and that’s why I fully endorse this timely work.  It is readable, easy to understand and apply, based on scientific data and the author’s years of experience, and most importantly, it’s full of tried-and-true habits which could change the way you eat for good.  

    Read this book and make it part of your life!
