On this episode of My Fulfilled Life, we speak with Darryl Edwards as he visited my city. He is a personal trainer, nutritionist and author, but that is not how he started out. His previous career was a computer programmer working within investment banking.

Hmm…how did he get to where he his today?

The topics covered on his journey:
