What drives a man to generate extreme change in his life? Listen in as Curt Baney shares his interesting career path and the moment that he knew he had to make big changes for his health. Curt thrives in chaos and he loves taking on the next big challenge. Listen in and learn all about this professional “P” in the Pod[cast]. 

Curt started off his life in a state of chaos. Shortly after he was born, his mother and father decided to go their separate ways. Fast-forward several years and his mother found the love of her life and gave him the choice of joining them in California or staying with his grandparents. He chose to stay with his grandparents.

Despite the chaos of his home life, Curt was a burgeoning entrepreneur. Listen as he shares many of his early, childhood money-making ventures. It makes complete sense why he was comfortable enough to start his most recent business. 

He didn’t stay an entrepreneur though. Instead, he went into retail, which led to a non-profit, which led to his career move to HR, and now he’s a personal trainer and fitness coach. Curt really does love to make changes in his life. 

The biggest change came when his doctor started telling him some not so great things about his health. It was then that he realized he needed to get moving. Listen in as he shares more about his life now, why he’s run so many marathons, and how his new lease on life has impacted his family.

This was really a great one y’all. Curt is an amazing human being who has created a lot of change in the world. Learn all about him and his contributions.
