Showing my cards.
8 years ago, I might’ve started a blog out of pride. Today, I start a blog with complete humility. The last eight years of my life has been an insane journey.
Within this journey, I’ve gone from being a cocky little college (for 2 weeks) dropout and 18-year-old punk, to being homeless and living out of my car, to being a successful entrepreneur and playing a lead role in a number of online brands and companies.
Humbled by the grace of God daily, it’s with complete humility that I use the word successful (a term more often used by others to describe me, than me describing myself).
I believe that what success I’ve had has come from two main elements, with one playing a much more crucial role than the other – the more crucial role being God. Everything I have, and everything I am, is because God has blessed me with it and allows me to do it.
A lot of people (without much thought) hold grudges against God for what they’ve endured, but I truly believe that the trials and tribulations in my life have made me what and who I am today, and for that I am nothing but thankful.
It’s those trials and tribulations I’ve endured and the places I’ve been (mentally and emotionally) that make up the second of the two main elements that led to ‘my success’. That element being the fear of being what I once was, which has me up minutes before my 5:03 am alarm goes off daily.
This blog / website was designed and built (by my incredible team) to allow me to share with you the journey I’m on, sharing with you experiences, thoughts, and stories that inspire(d) me and motivate(d) me. Hopefully in hearing these stories and experiences, you in turn will be inspired and motivated.
I am not an author (yet, hah), journalist, or any other form of writing professional. On the opposite end of the spectrum, I have a tendency to hit the keys and type words in the same order and manor as I would if we were talking in a conversation.
That being said, if you’re looking to correct someone on mistakes, have a field day, but my hope and desire is that you read this blog with an open heart and mind and take something away that goes much farther than proper grammar and punctuation.
