Going to the doctors, they would tell him nothing was wrong due to him being in the safe BMI range. Marc suffers from lacking muscle mass though, creating many challenges with his weight and health. With that, Marc knows there are others who may also be struggling with BMI inaccuracy, so he has set out to study  and help overcome the obesity health crisis.Guest Name & Bio: As the lead scientific researcher at Fellow One Research, Marc Nelson has pioneered Body Type Science (The Four Body Types) since 2003 including creating the only Online Worldwide Science-Based Health Community Website that offers the Scientific Body Type Quiz and Scientific Weight Loss Programs (Basic and Advanced).

I didn’t think back then that I would make a career of it. At 27 years old, I saw my first chance to break into the six-figure club and make $100K+. My first year was TOUGH. We had no leads and went door-to-door to sell policies at kitchen tables. I wanted to quit every day but I stuck it out and it paid off. Over the years I’ve moved well over seven figures of annual premium personally and well into eight figures through the teams I’ve built. Now we field over 200 agents every week and are projected to do over $20M in annual premium in 2021 – and payout over $20M in commissions to our agents. If you want to be a part of that, you don’t need any sales or insurance experience – we have leads coming out of our ears and we will teach you everything you need to know. YOU DO NEED integrity, a competitive heart, and a commitment to bring your best.” Contact Info:    you for listening!Please subscribe on iTunes and give us a 5-Star review! to other episodes and learn more about the show:Website:  www.youtube.com/channel/UCk1tCM7KTe3hrq_-UAa6GHALearn more about Nick, the host: www.NickMcGowan.comGuest Inquiries right here: www.TheMindsetAndSelfMasteryShow.comShare your thoughts here: nick@nickmcgowan.com- Your Friends at “The Mindset & Self-Mastery Show”
