234_ Leveraging Your Nutrition & Fitness Skills to Build Physical & Financial Freedom with Thanasi Panagiotakopoulos

by | Mar 12, 2024

Today on the show I chat with my buddy Thanasi Panagiotakopoulos.

Thanasi is a former professional basketball player and Body Systems alumnus. He is also the Founder and President of Life Managed, a fee-only fiduciary independent privately owned financial planning and investment management firm in Phoenix.

In today’s conversation, we dive into the myriad of similarities between keeping your body in peak physical condition and keeping your finances in the green. We discuss compound interest—how small, consistent efforts in either fitness or savings can lead to substantial gains over time, the principle of delayed gratification—explaining why the most significant results in health and wealth are reserved for those who wait and persist, and the importance of budgeting to drive awareness—whether it’s tracking calories or cash.


Thanasi and I also touch on the challenges that come with transitioning from a professional athletic career to corporate America, as well as his biggest hurdles in navigating the dynamics of growing up in a Greek family, where the European lifestyle of late nights and generous food portions at gatherings is the norm.


If you’ve ever wondered how to leverage your discipline and skills from fitness to bolster your financial future, or vice versa, this episode is for you. Because if you can master your nutrition and fitness, you’ve already got the foundation to improve your financial health.


So whether you’re looking to get shredded, save for that dream European vacation, or both, buckle up. Because this conversation might just change the way you approach your goals.
