He also has background that includes military intelligence, Special Agent for the U.S. State Department Diplomatic Security Service, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, and U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

He holds an AS degree in Exercise Science, BS in Criminal Justice, and MS in Forensic Science.

He was raised in the High Desert at the basin of the Sierra Nevada mountain range in a rural part of California. Gary now lives off-the-grid part of the year in a remote area of NE Washington State. The other part of year exploring in his travel trailer with his trusty black lab Barney.

Gary has been involved in organized sports, nutrition, and fitness for almost four decades. He is also an active follower and teacher of what he calls “life simplification.” He often says:

“Today we’re bombarded by too much stress, not enough time for personal fulfillment, and failing to take care of our health… there has to be a better way!”

GARY’S PERSONAL BIO

Since I started publishing my own books years ago, people have been asking when and if I was going to do audio versions… well that day has come! The first book in audio is The Simple Life Guide To RV Living: The Road to Freedom and the Mobile Lifestyle Revolution.

My next book The Simple Life Guide To Financial Freedom will also be available in audio (see the cover below). I will try my best to get the remainder of my books in audio as soon as possible. But as a lot of you know I do a lot of the work on my books myself. That means there is no publishing company paying for everything, just me, which can delay things at times. The big upside, is it allows me to control my content and own 100% of everything I do. 

A quick update: There are a lot of exciting changes coming to The Simple Life, so make sure to sign up for my newsletter if you are reading this on the blog. The Simply Gary podcast is slated to come out in September, I’m excited to get going on that and have some really interesting guests talking about all things related to living the simple life. I want my podcast to be a place of learning new things and stretching our imaginations, as we float around on this rock in an infinite universe.

Sometimes holding them back from living a more meaningful life. The show reaches 350,000+ listeners per month from 40+ countries, 16 AM/FM stations in 20 cities nationwide and across 20 Internet platforms.

She built and ran a six-figure online marketing business for several years. Phoebe realized that her real passion was in helping entrepreneurs embrace their true identity. Wanting to amplify their message and have a greater impact by being more of themselves.

She believes that while what we do in the world is important, we’re meant to do so much more in life than just work.

Phoebe went cage diving with great white sharks, camped in the Serengeti and motorbiked across 15 countries in Europe.

She loves connecting with existing and established business owners that see podcasting as an opportunity for growth. Hope is an expensive podcasting strategy that rarely works. What she has learned, after several years in the podcasting space, can help you scale your impact.

Carey Portell – Ranching with disabilities

Carey Portell

Today’s podcast is with Missouri cattle rancher and inspirational speaker, Carey Portell. Carey became a Speaker and Blogger, not only to purge and heal, but to encourage others down a positive path in life. She speaks about her four year recovery after becoming a survivor of a drinking and driving collision and her choice to overcome this tragedy. She is partially disabled and works a cattle farm. 

“I’m just not used to people seeing in to my life this much, but if you don’t let them see certain moments, vulnerable moments, that is what inspires people to think more”

Her journey is compelling and humbling. Her passion to speak to others about the affects of drinking and driving actually puts her on the road more often, making her more susceptible to encountering another drunk driver. She faces her fears in the hopes to inspire and help others. In addition to speaking about the affects of drinking and driving, Carey also speaks on agriculture, healthcare, faith and community.

Carey is a huge advocate of AgrAbility. Their vision is to enhance quality of life for farmers, ranchers, and other agricultural workers with disabilities, so that they, their families, and their communities continue to succeed in rural America.

Connect with Carey Portell:
