Jim Spellos is the President of Meeting U., whose mission is to help people become more productive and comfortable with technology. Holly talks with him about the past ten years or so that they’ve known each other and how a health crisis helped Jim implement a routine of meditation, exercise and a new eating lifestyle. As mindfulness returned, he supported it with technology and apps that helped him find restaurants and places that were conducive to his new healthy lifestyle. He and his wife implemented their new eating regimen based on Mark Bittman’s book, Vegan Before 6pm (VB6).
Jim also shares that he is building a community through Patreon.com. He offers courses for subscribers for $5 a month. He shares various content to help subscribers stay up to date with changing technology, through his Minute Tech video education series. Check it out at https://www.patreon.com/jspellos.
