Session description: Most of us spend more time planning our vacation than we do our life. What if we had the same focus on creating a life of health and wellness? It’s one thing to visit Nice, France but another to bike the Tour De France course there. Shay shares how a focus on health and wellness creates a life by design, where the impossible is just a matter of creating daily intentional actions. Shay will share how this mindset is transformative professionally, personally, and spiritually, and how this lifestyle allowed him to go from learning how to walk again to crossing 42 IRONMAN finish lines and becoming the top 1% in business and sports.
