In this episode, Charlie chats with his good friend Marcus Pearce. Marcus Pearce was not necessarily destined for a life of health and wellness. However meeting his wife Sarah, a stint at veganism, a fascination with longevity & quality of life, and collating his research into his new book ‘Your Exceptional Life’ has put him squarely in that space. Marcus is an expert and advocate of such phrases as ‘make the rest of your life the best of your life’ and ‘do what you love and love what you do’.
