Bonnie Cashman

For Alan and Bonnie Cashman, life is about building sturdy foundations – for their marriage (40 years and counting), for their successful businesses and for better health through diet, fitness and positive thinking. Cashman Lifestyle is their way of passing along the personal and professional lessons they’ve learned to others so they too can “enjoy the good life.” The Cashman’s unique partnership began when they met while both were attending Seattle University. They would spend the better part of the next four decades married and working together to establish not one, but two successful companies; the Balanced Program Institute (BPI), one of the premier employee benefit firms in the Pacific Northwest, and Administrative Systems, Inc. (ASI), a top provider of office systems/ support to insurance companies. As founder of both companies, Alan acquired valuable experience in key areas of financial services, including employee benefits, wealth management, retirement planning and individual/corporate life insurance. Bonnie was BPI’s president while also establishing herself as a sales leader, building relationships with more than 1,000 employer groups in the Seattle area. She also is a sought-after speaker for her experience in worksite marketing and in 1999 was inducted into the National Association of Professional Enrollment Specialists Hall of Fame. In 2003, the Cashmans sold both BPI and ASI to a New York Stock Exchange company, giving them the financial freedom to build a private art collection and search for new challenges. Although both had more time to exercise, Alan continued to struggle with weight and blood pressure and Bonnie developed a form of skin cancer. But the Cashmans brought the same work ethic and research to their health that they had brought to bear on the business world. They learned of dietary secrets that did away with sugar and set them on the road to wellness – so much so that Seattle doctors were surprised that Alan had quickly turned around his vital signs and Bonnie ended her skin cancer issues. The Cashmans have opened an innovative multi-discipline fitness center, Lab5 Fitness, in Seattle’s Capitol Hill, and have started Cashman Lifestyle as a way to share their expertise in helping others live healthier, wealthier lives. The Cashmans “enjoy the good life.” Now their mission is to teach others how to do the same. Learn more at www.CashmanLifestyle.com.
