Mission #110

On Board: Stephan Spencer
Mission: The Optimized Geek

One of the best things about finding the love of your life is exploring all of the things you have in common! My amazing husband, Stephan Spencer, is also a podcaster. A few months ago, he invited me to interview him on his podcast The Optimized Geek for its special 100th episode. We had an incredible conversation in which he shared his wisdom and all the lessons, tips, tricks, tools, and insights he’s learned from the world-class guests on his podcast. The conversation was so interesting and value-packed that I decided to bring it to you here on Stellar Life!

In addition to being my wonderful husband and the love of my life, Stephan is a three-time author and a true genius. He’s also an all-around amazing person! I already mentioned that he hosts The Optimized Geek, but if you’re interested in marketing, SEO, ecommerce, and related topics, you also need to check out his other podcast, Marketing Speak. After you hear all the wisdom he shares in today’s episode, I have a feeling you won’t be able to get enough of his podcasts!

  • [54:24] – Stephan shares his three top tips for optimizing your inner geek: 1. Establish new habits (like morning rituals or affirmations) that will set you up for success. 2. Really question your thoughts, because your thoughts often aren’t true, and suffering is optional. 3. Because knowledge is power, always learn, optimize, and uplevel in every aspect of your life. (One way to do this is by listening to every episode of the Optimized Geek!)

Your Checklist of Actions to Take

✓ Strengthen and nurture your spirituality by exploring different teachings that can give light to your true purpose and teach you how to be a better person.

✓ Help people with true intention and not because you want to get something out of it in return but because you simply want to help and share my blessings.

✓ Understand that being vulnerable is not a sign of weakness and that your ego is separate from your true self. The real you is revealed when you peel back all my layers, raw & exposed.

✓ Explore Gary Chapman’s 5 Love Languages and learn you and your partner’s primary love language so you can be more intentional in your connections.

✓ Study the teachings of Alison Armstrong to get an insight into whether your partner’s hurt is coming from a feminine or masculine side to better understand how to respond appropriately.

✓ Improve your relationship by showing appreciation and focusing on the good through techniques like Imago Therapy.

✓ Get your hormones tested to see if you need to take hormone boosting supplements to be more vital, feel stronger and be more present, powerful, and capable.

✓ Own your body by working out and going to the gym or hiring a personal trainer and experimenting with different techniques that work best for your body type.

✓ Look into different biohacking techniques and explore the teachings of Dave Asprey and the Bulletproof movement.
