185 – Would I Eat a Burger?

Hey there! Welcome back to The David Madow Lifestyle Show It’s the show where I help you live stronger, thinner, healthier, and happier. I’m so happy to have you here. It’s going to be a great one as usual!

So, the other day I asked a question on Facebook. The question I asked on Facebook was “ask me one question.” That’s all it was. No explanation. Nothing else. Just “ask me one question.”

I got a lot of good ones. And some crazy ones. One in particular that I would like to address. Are you ready for this? It’s going to be quite interesting.

“Do you ever long for a juicy sirloin burger off the grill on a toasted bun and a cold beer?” – Bruce

I think Bruce was serious. Asking me do I ever just want to sink my teeth in a big juicy burger. I’ll give you my answer. My answer is absolutely no. I do not long for this, I do not want one, I do not crave it. I don’t! And the reason is simple – I love animals.

I have pets. As I am walking right now, I am walking past horses. Animals are beautiful. We are animals.

I ate meat for 56 years, but if I were to ever sink my teeth into a burger what I am doing is eating ground up suffering animal. That’s what that is. If you think about it, it’s ground up animal that suffered its entire life. Believe it or not. It’s the truth.

If you are eating a burger, that’s what you’re eating. You are contributing to animal suffering. And you’re eating the end product.

No, Bruce. I am sorry but I don’t crave that at all. When you eat something like that, you are eating fear and you are eating suffering. That’s what’s going into the cells in your body.

Since I stopped, I really believe that I have become a kinder individual. I really believe that. That’s not to say that you’re not kind. But I’ve noticed a tremendous difference though in my life; how I feel and how I treat other people. It didn’t happen overnight. I’ve been vegan now for three years and it did not happen the first time I took animals off my plate. But over time I feel like I am more compassionate to not only animals but to human beings.

I’m very careful about what I say to people and how I say it. I try to respect and love more than I ever have in my life. I used to snap back at people if they said something I didn’t like. And I used to take things personally and give it back personally. When you become vegan and take animals off your plate, a lot of other things go with that. Your body make up really does change. I am not kidding you.

I am able to say this because I have done it both ways. If you’ve only eaten animals your entire life, it’s not fair for you to say what it’s like if you don’t because you have never tried it or done it. And trying it does not mean for a week. It does not mean for a month. It really doesn’t mean for a year. I really started noticing big changes but it took a while. It probably took awhile to get the toxicity out. The suffering and the fear out of my cells.

Your cells turn over to brand new ones every so often. It’s not an overnight process. Once you eliminate animals you really turn into a different person. You can’t really understand this if you’re putting animal products into your body. You can’t understand it because you haven’t done it the other way.

I’m not demeaning. I’m not looking down on anybody. And I always say this. I just got off of a Facebook conversation with somebody that’s so far vegan that this person does not like people that aren’t vegan. This person basically only respects and likes people that are vegan.

Do I think that’s a good way to live my life? No. Let’s face it. I’d say 97% to 99% of the people on this planet eat some type of animal product. If I said that all of those people are bad people, I wouldn’t have too many people to hang out with. I wouldn’t think that anyway.

At age  56 I was not a bad person either and I was still eating meat. I learned over a period of time that’s probably not the best way to live your life and I changed. Not everybody is on the same timeline. Some people are behind and some people are way ahead of me. That doesn’t mean that I am or was a bad person. It has nothing to do with being a good or bad person. It has to do with what you feel is right to do in your life. There’s no judging.

Getting back to the original question. Do I feel that I ever want to eat any animal product again? No, I don’t. That’s the simple answer Bruce. I hope that helps you.

I want to take one more questions that I promised this person that I would answer as well. It’s a great one.

“If you could take one item (besides animal products) out of grocery stores, what would it be?” – Michelle

What would I eliminate forever from the grocery store? Great question! There are probably a lot. But the one that comes to my mind right off that bat. Can you guess? What’s the one product that I would like to see gone. Drumroll please…

It’s coca-cola and all of its associated products. All sugary and diet soft drinks. With the artificial sweeteners, they are poison. I never ever drink soft drinks ever! They are causing medical problems. They are causing obesity. They are causing all kinds of medical issues. There’s nothing healthy about them. They should be only on the black market. Seriously, they should not be labeled. They are horrible. I’d like to know how many gallons of soft drink the average person drinks per week.

I go into an Asian restaurant where usually the food is pretty healthy and I get green tea and people are drinking coke. I don’t get it. It’s killing us people. Let’s get rid of the soft drinks. The soft drinks should go. That’s my answer Michelle.

Right now I am in my outdoor studio and I am doing some walking. Here’s the deal. One of my cars has been on the shop while I have been out of town for a few days. And the shop that has it is about four miles away from where I live. It would have been very easy for me to ask Yoko to drive me over to pick my car up. Most people would have done that.

No, what I did was I put my backpack on. It’s a light backpack I use for hiking and running. I put water in it and an energy bar in it. And I brought my portable recording studio with me. And I am walking the four miles up to get my car. How much fun is that? Think about your body movement. If there’s a chance to get on an elevator or take the stairs, take the steps instead of the elevator. Or park far away at the grocery store and walk a little bit. Don’t take a train if you can walk. Don’t take a cab if you can walk. Don’t talk a car if you can walk.

I noticed yesterday as I was on stage doing a talk in Philadelphia. As I get off the stage and looked at my Fitbit I noticed that I took over 11,000 steps. Motivational speaking in aerobic. It is! You can walk a lot, either on the stage or around the room. And that’s not even including all the walking I did after that gig. Think about it! Move your body!

In exactly one week, we’ve got the Vegan Indian Buffet & Open Mic. I am excited! It’s SOLD OUT! I’m excited to see many of you that are coming in from out of town. Steve’s coming in from Oklahoma. I’ve got a guy coming in from Las Vegas. I’ve got people coming in from Japan. Admittedly they aren’t coming in from Japan only for the open mic. They are going to be here anyway. It’s going to be wild! I can’t wait to see you! If you’re not coming to this one, look for future dates. We’re going to do some more of these.

Until next week! I love ya! I’m Dr. Dave.

184 – Your Side Hustle

Hey there! It’s Dr. Dave and welcome back to The David Madow Lifestyle Show. It’s the show where I help you live stronger, thinner, healthier, and happier.

I’ve got a lot of great people with me today. I want to thank all of you for listening! Some of the guys and gals that I spoke to at the Whole Foods talk last week in Annapolis, Maryland said they would be listening too. The talk was great! I had about 60 people out there. It was a great audience. I showed them 10 ways to supercharge their life and we had a great time. I want to thank you so much for having me out there. I can’t wait to come back again. It was incredible!

Before we get into our main topic today, if you have not signed up for the Vegan Indian Buffet & Open Mic on May 6th, I think I’ve got 2 or 3 seats left. The thing is virtually sold out. I am holding a few so if you want to come let me know.

By the way, if you think you are too far from Owings Mills, Maryland, we have somebody coming in from Oklahoma City which is quite a distance. I’ve got somebody that just signed up last night that is coming in from Las Vegas, Nevada to attend this event. Plus, I have a couple people that are going to be in from Japan. So, if you think you are too far away and the distance is separating us, shut up! You’ve got to get there because it’s going to be awesome. The first one we did was incredible. We had not only fantastic food from the all you can eat vegan Indian buffet but then people stepped up to the mic and it was amazing. I want to see you there! Let me know if you want to take those last few tickets. I would love to hang out with you. [UPDATE: This event is now SOLD OUT. Stay tuned for information about our next event.]

Let’s get into our main topic of the day. And that’s a topic that I want to call “side hustle.” What is a side hustle exactly? Well, a side hustle is a side business or a job that you have in addition to your day job to either have fun with or potentially make some money on the side. A lot of people do a little side hustle because it’s something they ultimately want to turn into their full-time business.

Now, I have to admit, I have been using this term for a while. It’s been around for quite some time. I did some research and the term actually goes back to the 1950s where it was primarily used in the African American community for a side or part-time job to make extra money for the family.

The word hustle can have many different connotations. When you hustle somebody usually that’s bad. But no, a side hustle is not that at all. A side hustle is simply something you are doing in addition to your regular work as a hobby or to potentially make some money.

I’m going to share something. I think you have a side hustle in you and I am going to prove it to you right now. When I was practicing dentist back in the 80s, I had some patients in my practice that were delinquent payers. They rightfully owed me money for treatment that was done and for some reason they just never paid me. I also have a brother that’s a dentist as well, Dr. Rich Madow. And he was practicing about 30 miles away from where I was and he was experiencing the same problem. So together we designed a collection form completely on our own and we started sending it to our patients that owed us money. Sure enough, wham! Checks started coming in to the mailbox. Sometimes patients would even come in and put cash on the counter. This thing worked incredibly well.

So, we had this idea to start a side hustle. This was back in 1989. I didn’t know the term at all. But what we started doing was to market this collection form to other dentists in the area first. Then we decided to market it through direct mail. There was no internet back then. And sure enough dentists all over the country started buying our little collection form.

It didn’t stop there. We started marketing this thing to other doctors. It didn’t stop there either. We then marketed it to other types of businesses. Florist, funeral homes, automotive, anybody that had the potential to be owed money by clients, patients, or customers. This little business started taking off. That was my side hustle.

Fast forward a few years from that, we started developing some other products for dentists and other doctors and in 1993 I sold my dental practice. Which by the way was a very successful and lucrative practice. But I sold it to promote my full-time side hustle. And over many, many years it has blossomed into pretty much an international business. We speak all over North America and Canada. We have products for doctors. We do all kinds of things to help people become more successful.

So that was my side hustle that turned into my full-time hustle or rather full-time business.  A serious business. I have fun with it. And I can pretty much work from wherever I want. If you have a cell phone, a computer, and an internet connection, you can pretty much do anything these days.

Side hustles are a way to do other things outside of your main job. The s ide hustle I’ve had lately is helping people like you make your life better. I have been working with individuals on a one on one basis coaching and really turning lives around. I love it! It’s something I can do from pretty much wherever I am. It is so rewarding to meet someone and after several phone calls and communicating with them by email, they change their life. There really isn’t anything better.

If you have something that you are trying to achieve in your life and you’re not sure what direction to turn, it may be worth a phone call. It may be worth you and I chatting on the phone. Now, do I talk to every single person that requests a call. No, my life is really, really busy. Thank God! Things are really great and I just don’t have the time to talk to every person that wants to talk. But if I think there’s a match and I think we are vibrating at the same frequency. Send me an email to rundrdave@gmail.com. Let me know what you are thinking and why you want to talk. It could be anything. From losing weight to being stronger to developing a side hustle or something that you want to do in your regular business or job or whatever it might be. Throw it out there to me. If you want we can jump on the phone and chat about it a little bit and see if we can work together.

I just want to go back to my Annapolis talk that I did last week one more time. It was great talking to 60 people. So many people came up to me at the end. I was getting asked great questions and giving business cards hoping to stay in touch.

My wife Yoko actually made a pretty big hit there. If you are a long-time listener you probably know that she is a massage therapist. And she does a lot of different modalities and energy work. And she is a great Yogi and meditator. I think when we come back there, Yoko and I may do a talk together. She has so much to share. So, look out for Yoko to be speaking with me in the near future. I think she would be a tremendous asset. She just connects with people even though English is not her first language. She has some incredible life changing things to say.

I am going to go ahead and have a healthy breakfast right now. People ask all the time what I eat for breakfast so I am going to share this with you because it’s healthy, it works for me, and it gives me energy. I have some type of vegan cereal and pile it with fresh organic fruit. One of my favorite cereals is Veganic Sprouted Ancient Maize Flakes. It’s by a company called One Degree Foods. I also add things like chia seeds, flax seeds, hemp seeds, pecans, walnuts, and almond milk. It is an incredibly filling healthy meal that I enjoy almost every single morning. When I am traveling and staying in a hotel room, I’ll bring instant oatmeal with no sugar added. I also bring almond milk and hemp seed or flax seed and shake it up in one of those shaker bottles and let it sit for a while. You do not have to heat oatmeal for it to work really well.

Another thing I’ve been asked to do is to help people travel for pennies on the dollar. I’ve literally figured out how to travel all across the U.S.A. and more basically on the cheap. I do not spend a lot of money when I travel. And if you follow me you know that I travel quite a bit. Some of it is purely for pleasure but I have totally mastered the art of being able to travel around for not very much.

I’m going to get back in there and have a healthy vegan breakfast. Until next week, I am Dr. Dave! See ya!
