Resourceful – I always look for alternative methods to accomplish my set goals.
I run and bike 4x per week and have followed the ketogenic diet the last 2 years.
Ketogenic diet – ultra low carb with increased fat intake. My body burns fat as it’s primary fuel source instead of carbohydrates, resulting in consistent energy throughout the day.
Save money until it hurts, otherwise you aren’t saving enough.
Focus on the life I want and putting steps in place to make it a reality.
Remaining patient. I have long-term goals set for myself and I need to balance living in the now while working toward my desired future.
Email. I constantly am in contact with people personally and professionally through email.
Seeing my parents work hard, make sacrifices, and ultimately live the lives they worked to achieve.
Be promoted to a finance manager, have a healthy and happy baby boy, buy the first house together with my family, and grow my blog to a certain traffic level.
The morning when I wake up. I’m an early riser and enjoy the solitude in the mornings to start my day right.
Bike, run, blog
Thanks for Your Time!
As always, I really appreciate that you have taken the time to come and read our blogger interview with Riley Adams. From this interview and the little bit of his blog I’ve had a chance to read I feel like I have gotten to know Riley pretty well. I look forward to reading more and following him on social media and I hope you do the same.
