By: Joshua Conner

Hunter Arnold, is an entrepreneur, WFG Financial Planner, and NPC Competitor based in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Arnold inspires me personally and professionally. Personally, I am inspired by Arnold’s body of work and his dedication to fitness. Professionally, I am inspired by how Arnold’s work ethics and how he has successfully created a foundation in three different industries.

What would be the title of Arnold’s life story and who would play him in a movie?

“The title of my life story, let’s see, I would say unexpected. Who would play me, I look like Mark Wahlberg, so I’m going to say, Mark Wahlberg,” said Arnold.

What was Arnold’s most memorable year?

“I would say, my most memorable year was actually this past year 2018. I just had a lot going for me in 2018. 2017, was kind of, I don’t want to say it was a rough year, but it was kind of like a down year for me, then 2018, I just really like burst out. My bodybuilding and my modeling career kind of took off, and I went to Aruba. It was really just a great year,” said Arnold.

If Arnold’s mantra was a hashtag it would be #BeyondDriven.

“I’m not sure, maybe #BeyondDriven, just because, everyone says it’s motivated, but I feel like motivation is kind of overrated. If you don’t do anything with the motivation, then it’s not really anything, but if you have a driving force behind it, then it kind of creates both of them,” said Arnold.

What does Arnold enjoy about being an NPC Competitor?

“I enjoy honestly, the discipline that goes into the training, it’s my favorite thing about it,” said Arnold.

Arnold is also a financial planner, “We started a free financial planning center, here in Chattanooga.  The one thing that I would say is kind of unique about it, is that it’s open to everyone, unlike most other financial planning centers,” he said.

If Arnold could get drafted by any National Football League team, it would be the Miami Dolphins.

“I honestly, would love to play for the Miami Dolphins. Just, because I want to live in Miami, that’s a dream of mine. I played safety and linebacker, in high school, so I would probably choose one of them. I like safety better so I would play safety,” said Arnold.

If you could go fishing anywhere, where would you go?

“Probably, Jupiter, Florida, because it’s the saltwater capital of the world,” said Arnold.

Marty Riva

I recently had an opportunity to speak with Marty Riva, Chicago’s charming realtor & hunky model.

By: Joshua Conner

Marty Riva, Chicago Real Estate Broker with @Properties & model for DAS Model Management Miami, inspires me both personally & professionally. I really found him relatable because we were both born in Illinois & our mothers played a pivotal role in our lives. I am so inspired by how Riva, has diversified his real estate & modeling brands both tangibly & through social media. I really admire his composure, work ethic & style.

What is a day in the life of Riva like?

“I’ll usually wake up, and I’ll check my emails. If I have any showings to do for real estate,  I’ll do some real estate showings. Other than that, I’ll typically work out, late morning or early afternoon. I’ll usually work out 2 to 3 hours, depending on if I play basketball or not. I really love playing basketball, so I try to play it as much as I can for the cardio. Then at night, I’m either: doing a second job, where I work at D.S. Tequila Company, doing serving, or I will be spending some time with my girlfriend, watching a movie, or having some dinner,” said Riva.

What would be the title of Riva’s life story & who would play him in a movie?

“Oh, so I get told that I look like Jon Hamm a lot, so I imagine Jon Hamm would play me in a movie. The title would be The Calm Life of Marty Riva,” said Riva.

If Riva’s mantra were hashtag, what would it be?

“#Staycalm, just because that really embodies the person I am.  I don’t really get nervous or scared, at least I don’t show it. Everyone just kind of looks at me, like I am cool, calm & collected twenty-four seven, even though on the inside, I may not be,” says Riva.

What is Riva’s underwear preference and what is his favorite brand?

“So, this is interesting because I recently made a change. I was only wearing boxers for as long as I can remember. After I got into modeling I learned that boxer briefs were a lot easier to change in & out of for photo shoots. So, I made a switch to boxer briefs & my favorite brand is definitely Calvin Klein,” said Riva.

Riva has also modeled Richard Dayhoff underwear.  

“Modeling Richard Dayhoff underwear, was really nice. They were really comfortable, honestly no complaints about it. Having that name and being able to be on his Instagram, I really felt honored to be presented in that way,” said Riva.

Riva says he would like to be a wide receiver for the Minnesota Vikings if he were drafted into any National Football League team.

How would Riva describe his real estate business?

“I would say that I am dedicated to the people I am working for. I would do anything to get them the place they want and at the price they want. I am pretty much there go to person, whenever they have a question about anything real estate related. If I don’t have an answer, I’ll do my best to find that answer for them or direct them to the person, that can give them that answer. I always try to be honest with the people I with, I believe that’s the best policy. I treat them the way I want to be treated, kind of like the golden rule. That kind of goes along with how I live my life,” said Riva.
