The path less traveled


I remember, sitting there. Worn out from 21 credit hours per semester and building my business after school.

I hated school and loved business. I was in the school of business, and only two of my teachers actually had businesses. There's something about being constantly lectured to about things I'm not interested in that doesn't sit well with me. I'm not a quitter so I had to finish...but I had to finish fast!

I tried to get out in 3 years, but they wouldn't let me take this BS Strategic management class in summer school.  So I had to do one more semester with one class, another reason I LOVED school so much. (I hope you can detect that sarcasm).

Alas, I finally escaped the madness..... but what was I to do now? 

Everyone I knew encouraged me to go back to school, but I was done with that. 

After college I wanted to find my own way to freedom because school just wasn't for me anymore.

I hated being a student and I have no shame in admitting it. I wanted to do my own thing.

I always knew I wanted to make BIG money but it couldn't be the conventional corporate ladder because I was already tired of people telling me what to do.  Though I wanted to make some money, I wanted to do it on my own terms. 

Freedom to do what I wanted with my life was what I wanted more than money. This is still the case, fortunately, by grace, I don't have to choose now. 

You know how it is... you see people living the lives you dream about...

... no asking for vacation, no worrying about the stresses of making rent and car payments.I wanted to call my own shots. 

That’s all I wanted, you know... I wanted the ability to make as much money as I wanted to how I wanted to.I wanted to be my own man, my own boss. 

I didn't want some pencil pusher telling me how much money I'm worth and being so happy if they give me $40k a year. 

I am a very driven person and I knew I could make money without a Masters degree, so I started selling cars.

The money was okay, but that wasn't enough for me. I needed freedom and a legacy. 

I hated having to work 70+ hours a week to make the kind of money I wanted to. I had to find a better way. I turned to the internet. 

I don't think that is just by chance.

I began to start low cost/ low overhead businesses and marketing online.  I have spent my days researching the unconventional thinkers who saw what they wanted and went for it. I duplicated their efforts because I wanted to duplicate their success. 

I now live the life I designed. I'm not 100% where I want to be, but each day I get closer to my end goals. 

I work how and when I want to all because I work from my computer & mobile devices. I am my own boss. I believe marketing online was the single best business decision I've made. I'm amazed at people who aren't capitalizing on this trend. Do you think more or less people will shop on line next year? Exactly :)

This isn't me bragging, because I'm certainly not a big deal. This is just a small part of my story. You to can have the life you want. 

You can work WHEN you want, WHERE you want, in the way that YOU want. It's possible. I'm proof.

Your friend,

Whats your end game?

Whats your end game? 
Are you, right now, where you thought you'd always be in life?
Are you close to it? 
You can’t change the past. 
Think of all the hours at all your jobs. And that’s put you where you are today. Were you working on building a business of your own with residual income, a business you can sell or pass down, or were you trading your time for a paycheck? 
Was it worth it?
Are you getting what you set out for?
It’s important that we all stop and think. Are we doing something that aligns with our end game. The sad thing is that most people don’t even have an end game because they never sat down to think about and design their perfect life and how they’ll get there. Most people spend more time planning vacations than they do planning their futures!

People say we should all dream again. Sure, dreams are good to have. But most people just become dreamers. The graveyards are full of dreams that were never lived, because they never created a plan....or if they did tried to exec…

"The most important career choice you'll make is who you marry"

"The most important career choice you'll make is who you marry" 
Don't let anybody guilt you into a miserable marriage! 
The majority of married people that you know are miserable because they settled to societal pressures .....even if they won't admit it. 
Some folks out here getting married to say you're married.....but to each his own....as for me and my house if we can't be peaceful, loyal, & ain't eem trying to shoot at the same baskets & pay the same taxes I gotta keep it moving!
This is not to say marriage can't work. I absolutely believe it can, but with the right connection, reasons, and plan! But what do I know? I'm just a fat kid that eats too many crabcakes

When I was over 100k in delinquent debt

When I was over 100k in delinquent debt on the brink of losing everything I had to look myself in the mirror and take inventory. After making what I considered a tremendous amount of money at the time, now I sit here and realized I exhausted my savings, investments, credit, and almost ALL resources. I was blaming everything. The economy, bad partners, bad employees, stock market, location, bad vendors...you name it...I blamed it. But again, I had to take inventory How did I get here? Was it the economy? or was it me? Was it time to close businesses? Sell businesses? Sell assets? Was I successful as I thought I was? After careful consideration... I came to the conclusion I did work hard... I did do some things right.... but here I was... because I made some bad decisions and didn't hustle hard enough. Success made me soft. I stopped doing what I did to get there and coasted a bit. I did not prepare myself. I did not insulate myself. The economy WAS bad, but I still should have had better…
