Brian Pannuzzo on Building Habits and Long-Term Success

Despite a successful, high-paying career in Wall Street, Brian Pannuzzo risked it all to move across the country with his family and start a new career.

He worked as a financial advisor and bond trader for firms like Merryl Lynch, but after realizing that his stellar career came at the cost of his health and relationship with his family, Brian decided to take control and change his life.

Today, inspired by his journey through self-development, Brian helps other men improve their lives.

In this week’s episode, Brian and I discuss how to build better habits. He explains why he left his high-paying career in finance to become a health and nutrition coach. He shares strategies on creating better habits and emphasizes the power of making small habit changes.

Next we discuss the importance of maintaining a to-do list and prioritizing time for family, and he also shares his advice to his younger self, his reading list, and the reason he consistently tortures himself with cold showers. 


If we do the little things more often, more often they stack-up on each other. Next thing you know, you’re in a skyscraper. – Brian Pannuzzo
