MOTM #270: Motivation, Exploration, and Removing Temptation with Meredith Root and Alex Parker

Monday, January 4th, 2021

It’s become sort of a tradition at this point for my good pals Meredith Root and Alex Parker to come on this podcast as an end-of-the-year treat. Well, 2020 happened (as you know) and we couldn’t quite make that work, so instead I thought I’d have them as my very first guests of 2021.

If you’re an avid listener, you know them already—and if you don’t, their 3 previous episodes are linked below. Meredith and Alex are former CrossFit Games athletes and current owners of Tactic Function Nutrition. We’ve heard about their competition days, we’ve heard about nutrition and goal setting, so on this episode I really wanted to hear about their business ownership and how Meredith and Alex work so effectively.

If you own a business, and even if you don’t, give this episode a listen. I promise you’ll walk away a better, smarter, and more effective person than you were before. That’s just how good Meredith and Alex are.

In This Episode You'll Hear:

  • Where Meredith and Alex are now
  • Are quarantine trends here to stay?
  • Restricting vs. removing temptation
  • Taking a firm stance without fear of the repercussions
  • Alex’s law degree + how she uses it
  • Advice for going in a different direction than you originally intended
  • What are you passionate about? What are you good at? What can make you money?
  • Making time for exploration and how it makes you more effective
  • Revamp your routine and figure out what your priorities are
  • New Year’s Resolutions and internal motivations
  • What Meredith and Alex do for their clients
  • Niche down based on the problem you solve, not the person you sell to
  • Getting business advice
  • Living with your business partner
  • Business lessons and validation during ‘Rona
