The Simple Life Podcast with Gary Collins

Discover how to live the life you want instead of what other people tell you to live. The host and guests uncover and share the shortest route to finding your purpose, passion, and place in the world.

The Simple Life podcast (formerly Your Better Life podcast) is created and hosted by best-selling author and simple living expert Gary Collins. He is a former special agent and military intelligence officer who takes a no-BS-no-fluff-what’s-really-working-now approach to live the life you really want and cutting the meaningless clutter and drama. Topics range from simple living, entrepreneurship, personal freedom, finding your purpose, financial freedom, optimal health, living off the grid, and decluttering your life, just to name a few.

What makes The Simple Life podcast different from the others? Gary doesn’t just talk the talk he walks the walk. He is known for being blunt, to the point and teaching by experience, not the standard fair today of “fake it till you make it.” He calls those people the “false prophets,” and there is no place for them on the show.
