Greg Johnson – Personal Update 201608


Personal Update 201608 | 31 August 2016 | Wednesday


I hope you’re doing well. Thanks for taking a moment to read my latest update.


This summer I studied to become certified with Apple as a qualified repair technician. So, I’m now officially certified by Apple — which is an exciting accomplishment. I’m  one of two authorized repair technicians at the University of Iowa supporting thousands of Apple users. Since Apple computers are so reliable, the job is only part time, so the rest of the time, I continue staying quite busy with my consulting business. One of the highlights of the University work is having an opportunity to work in one of the best repair centers in our region under one of the best operations managers and business leaders I know.


As mentioned previously, my primary focus these days is losing weight and maintaining optimal health. Over the past month I’ve been eating a high protein and low carb diet, and combine bicycle riding with weight lifting for a good overall workout. This month, I added elliptical and more walking in addition to bicycling and strength training.

Small Houses

This month I gave another talk on tiny house living, this time at the Marion Public Library. There was a good turnout. This is the fourth talk I’ve given in our area recently about small houses.


Many thanks to all of you who keep in touch and provide support for the work I do.
