In Conversation with Paul Rayner

In this week's episode, I speak to Paul Rayner. Paul is a habit and health coach.

We talk about how he progressed from personal training, to being a research exercise scientist before returning to personal training and now his focus on nutrition and habit changes. Paul contemplates whether he is an entrepreneur or not and where he hopes to take the business in the future.

We talk about well being and challenges as well what success looks like for Paul.
