Flu Shot Or Not

These days it’s everywhere. Moreover we have the same fight  about the flu every year. Learn more in Flu-Shot-Or-Not-Bob Davis Podcast 870.

Hear The Flu In This Podcast

You can tell as soon as you download this podcast I am just recovering from a pretty bad bout with the flu. Voice a little weak. Especially relevant is the heavy congestion.

Hate Flu Shots

First of all I don’t like getting flu shots. I’ve always felt that actually getting the virus helps your body gain a stronger immunity. In addition I also believe it gives you some immunity to future strains. The good news is you’re possibly immune to the zombie apocalypse flu. The bad news is you got the flu, right?

Beginning To Understand Why People Get Flu Shots

In contrast as I get a little older I am starting to understand why vulnerable groups are encouraged to get shots. Senior citizens, and sometimes the very young. Finally after ten plus days in a malaise, coughing constantly and having to get medications I have some thoughts to share.

Like A Hurricane

The flu is like a hurricane. You know it’s coming. The storm might glance your island or miss completely. Then again it could be a direct hit. That’s what happened to me. Hurricanes are hard to predict and so is the flu.

Viral Disease

Influenza is a viral disease. Antibiotics won’t help. Anti-viral drugs can help early on. But in the midst of the flu nobody wants to sit in a waiting room.

Respiratory Attacks

Most noteworthy? Influenza is a respiratory disease attacking ears, nose, throat and lungs.

Coffee Started Tasting Bad

Early symptoms always feel like a cold or headache.

“How did you know you were sick”, they asked me. Truth is, the coffee started tasting bad five or six days out. Then a lot of sleeping. A lot!

Recovery Awesome

Furthermore when you start recovering you feel like a million bucks! As a result you gain some clarity about life. And stuff.

Enforced Vacations

My conclusion is every now and then an enforced ‘vacation’, coupled with a physical ordeal can kind of be fun. People tell me I drive myself pretty hard and I guess I do. Getting called out of the game for a few days isn’t such a bad thing. We’ll talk about it in Flu-Shot-Or-Not-Bob Davis Podcast 870.

Loving Life

I love life. Even when it’s uphill. Those moments make the downhill moments seem even sweeter.

We can get caught in the ACTION phrase of life’s loop. When you just have to stop you learn a lot.

Flu Shot? Where’s The Fun In That?

Then again, I could have just gotten a flu shot.

I’ve learned the importance of business networking these days. In addition to growing your small business, you meet great people. I’m joined by networking partner John Unverzagt in Fitness-Future-Business-Networking-Bob Davis Podcast 866.

Fitness Together

Especially relevant is the fact that John is the owner of two Fitness Together locations in Minneapolis and Saint Paul. You can click here for the link to Fitness Together.

My Business

Most noteworthy is the disclaimer at the beginning of this podcast. One of the things I do not do is sell interviews in my podcasts. I sell personal endorsement advertisements in my podcasts.

A Podcast Interview Prize

Recently as a prize at our networking group I gave away a podcast interview. John won that interview, and also happens to be a client. All the better for Fitness Together, right?

John’s Story

Even more John has a great story about his journey to becoming a fitness business owner. Furthermore his family’s hometown is also my family’s hometown. Plus I have my own fitness favorite, Yoga. Learn more here.

Future of Fitness

Certainly having one of my networking partners as a guest on the podcast is key. Moreover John shares some great observations about the Fitness Industry, his journey and the future of fitness.

First Generation Fitness Training Professionals

John has been in the fitness industry for a long time. As a result he lays claim to being among the first generation of professional fitness trainers. We’ll talk about the odyssey of fitness, from the first boxing gyms, to the big box gyms of today and especially the kind of focused personalized training Fitness Together provides in Fitness-Future-Business-Networking-Bob Davis Podcast 866.

Life Experiences

Finally we share some personal stories about the value of business networking for small businesses. For me, the opportunity to talk with other small business owners who have different life experiences and personalities is very important.

Fitness Has Become A Big Industry

In conclusion, fitness in general has grown to be a huge industry. What’s the future of Fitness?

Authentic-Self-Ego-Driven-World-Bob Davis Podcast 861

Inspired By A Random Conversation

I wasn’t going to do this podcast. Then I had a most noteworthy random conversation and it convinced me I was on the right track. Learn more when you listen to Authentic-Self-Ego-Driven-World-Bob Davis Podcast 861.

No Bitching and Moaning

Moreover I certainly did not want to do another podcast bitching and moaning about social media. Or a long story about how talk radio listeners respond to content, compared to how podcast subscribers and listeners react.

Conversation Triggers A Podcast

I was networking recently with a friend and business associate. We ended up at his law office having a great conversation about music, life and of course we ended up talking about the national political conversation these days.

Social Media

Of course social media came up and this was when I was convinced to do this podcast.

Yoga Takes You From One Place To Another

First of all my daily yoga practice is never far from my conscious thoughts. Lately I have been considering how that practice has changed me over the years. How yoga has brought me to a much stronger awareness of my inner self, or authentic self, versus the ego. That’s what I wanted to do a podcast on at some point.

Tacking To Our Authentic Self

It’s especially relevant that this recent conversation triggered that line of thought and this podcast. How tacking toward your authentic self changes your perceptions of the world and especially politics.

Mission Of This Podcast Has Changed Over The Years

It’s for that reason that the mission of The Bob Davis Podcast has changed from opinions about issues and events, with a concentration on politics, to a conversation about outcomes and their effects on individuals and society.

What The Ego Wants

Finally the fact is the ego wants gratification, material success, power and recognition. Not all of that is bad necessarily. But, the authentic self doesn’t need any of those things.

In conclusion yogis will ‘get it’. I wonder whether political people will.
