New Meaning to Giving Thanks


Give Thanks


I look forward to celebrating Thanksgiving every November, however, we have a NEW meaning to giving thanks this year!

2014 has been a pivotal year including big changes to family life, business success and new physical challenges to test my limits. Here is a rundown of some of the highlights that I am reflecting on today (click links to read more!)…


With all of those accomplishments, time with family has been my biggest success. Don’t think for one minute that we didn’t understand the risk associated with such a bold move by retiring both my wife and I to spend more time with family . However, we survived the transition and we will NEVER regret it. We were fortunate to make that move, but not from years of hard work, dedication and sacrifices with the end goal in mind as motivation. We made it happen and I am SO proud!


School Field Trip

Retirement allowed us to attend our son’s field trip at the animal farm!


With a more flexible schedule from home, we were also able to take many unscheduled trips to be with family when sudden illness struck as well as extending typical Holiday weekends to longer visits. For example, this flexibility allowed us to attend my Grandpa’s 102nd Birthday party in Chicago this month and capture a picture that I will cherish forever with 4 generations of Nowak men! Amazing. I am so thankful.

With all that said, I didn’t write this blog to brag about our accomplishments or freedom we now enjoy with our lifestyle. I wanted to write this blog to THANK all of my friends and family that helped make this possible. So, THANK YOU to my family, THANK YOU to my friends, THANK YOU to Team Beachbody for the amazing opportunity to get paid to help others, THANK YOU to my Team members at TEAM RAGE and for your support and motivation. You ALL inspire ME. YOU motivate ME. Thank you.


Looking forward to making the rest of my life, the best of my life

Happy Thanksgiving, my friends !
