Do you feel like life is too stressful and far more complicated than it needs to be?

Just like you I felt like I was on a treadmill to nowhere, grinding in life each and everyday, and thought there was something wrong with me for feeling this way. One day after spending nearly half my life in the federal government I had finally had enough and decided to do something about it, eventually creating my Off The Grid and The Simple Life Amazon Best Selling book series’ to share my story and help others in their pursuit of a better life.

What Makes The Simple Life Better And Different From All The Others?

1) Pure simplicity! I didn’t create The Simple Life for myself or my peers, I created it for you. Just like you, I have been confused and didn’t know where to look or who to trust. My quest for living a simpler and happier life has taken me on many bumpy roads, sometimes ending in a ditch. I spent years of trial and error, and I wanted to spare you the pain I went through. I have a pretty extensive background in health, wellness, and self-reliance so if I can be duped that tells me there is something wrong and it needs to be fixed. That is where the genesis of The Simple Life came from; to make it easy to follow for everyone.

2) My background. No one in the simple living, health and wellness industry has the inside knowledge I have as a former Special Agent for the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the US Department of Health and Human Services. I have been on the inside of our food, drug and healthcare industry, and let me tell you it isn’t pretty. In addition to my background in health, I have now spent years living off the grid in my home in the mountains and traveling around in my travel trailer. I’m on a continuous journey of a better, healthier and simpler life.

I want to share my inside knowledge with you, so you have all the tools you need to live a healthy, happy and fulfilled life as well.

In the spirit of living the simple life I really don’t use social media, so to stay up to date and be a member of my special insider group sign up for my newsletter (CLICK HERE)

Are Your Getting Your Health and Simple Living Advice From A Former Marketing Expert, Now Turned Slimy Network Marketing Guru?

The simple living and health industry in general are filled to the brim with hucksters. Most of the people telling you how to lose weight, be healthy and live a simpler life have no background in these areas! You heard me right, absolutely no education or experience in health or truly living the life they proclaim. If you are looking to change your life for the better make sure to avoid these people like the plague, they are dangerous, and their main goal is to sell you something.

What Is The Simple Life All About?

The Simple Life is a concept I created to help people make educated decisions concerning their health and simplifying their life. The Simple Life website is where I share valuable free information concerning my off-the-grid project, self reliance, nutrition, exercise, healthy food recipes, product reviews, health related articles, special promotions, and how to not only be self-sufficient in health, but in life as well. In addition, it is a place where I sell my best selling books about living off the grid, The Simple Life book series, and my highly sought after supplement line.

So Who Am I?

My name is Gary Collins and I’m many things at one time: entrepreneur, Amazon best selling author, simple living advocate and educator, nutrition and health expert, adjunct college professor, professional speaker…well I think you get the point. Bottom line I live and breath “The Simple Life” lifestyle every day and definitely practice what I preach.

I’m originally from from the High Sierra’s in California, but have lived a little here and there during my career in the military and as a Special Agent for the U.S. Government.

During my previous career I spent almost a decade investigating our food, drug and health care systems. To say I have a unique perspective into what is making Americans obese, stressed out and ill at an alarming rate, is an understatement.

What Are The Core Principles Of The Simple Life?

My simple life philosophy is based on 5 basic principles:

1. Knowledge is power
2. Avoid extremes
3. Keep it simple
4. Something is better than nothing
5. Take action today and every day
