Host: David Friedman, ND, DC
Guest Bio: Gary Collins

Gary Collins has a compelling 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. Gary’s expert knowledge brings a much-needed perspective to today’s areas of simple living, health, nutrition, entrepreneurship, self-help, and being more self-reliant. He holds an AS degree in Exercise Science, BS in Criminal Justice, and MS in Forensic Science. 

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

Gary considers himself lucky to have grown up in a small town where he enjoyed fishing, hunting, and anything outdoors from a very young age. He has been involved in organized sports, nutrition, and fitness for almost four decades. He is an active follower and teacher of what he calls “life simplification.” Gary 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!”

In addition to being a best-selling author, Gary is a highly sought after speaker in numerous areas, as they relate to self-improvement and life simplification. He has taught at the university level, consulted and trained collegiate athletes, and been interviewed for his expertise on various subjects by CBS Sports, Coast to Coast AM, The RT Network, and FOX News, to name a few.

His website www.thesimplelifenow.com, Podcast “Your Better Life,” and The Simple Life book series (his total lifestyle reboot), blows the lid off of conventional life and wellness expectations and is considered essential for every person seeking a simpler, and happier life.

Well, that's what Gary Collins did almost a decade ago. With a background in the military, Gary now lives off-the-grid part of the year in a remote area of NE Washington State and spends the rest of the year exploring in his travel trailer with his trusty black lab Barney.

Gary talks about how he ended up living this life, what he's learned off the grid and how you can build a remote life for yourself if you choose. He also covers how you can simplify and uncluttered your current life.
