Complacency Kills.

So we've heard it a thousand times, it's not just about reaching the top of the mountain it's about enjoying the journey, #embracetheprocess #struggleiscool blah blah blah. What you don't hear about is after people get to the top of the mountain, rip a couple selfies, they've got a treacherous journey down.


The descent, the descent will fucking kill you.


You're tired, you've already achieved your goal, you haven't had enough water, and your probably thinking about that comfy bed at basecamp. You're rushed, complacent and  increasing...

Life Lessons from the guy on the couch.



Hey Ya'll,

This month I had a buddy/guy on the couch drop into my home. His name is Spencer, I met him in Iraq 9 years ago, and for some reason maintained contact with him. Either way, Spencer lives in his car, grows broccoli sprouts in mason jars, and travels the world living a super cool life.

Whether it’s scheduling your daily responsibilities or getting 400 lbs on your back, we are told that balance is a key factor in what decides our successes or failures.  Being a dual athlete, I fight to stay balanced between the two each and every day.  Prepping for a figure competition taught me things about myself I never would have learned anywhere else...

I don't care.

don't care about Kathy Griffin, I don't care about 'covfefe' or other Twitter rants. I barely remember where Syria is on a map, and I've been there, I skirted the border for 12 months. I'm not overly concerned with anything that's happening on CNN or Fox anymore, as everything is a crisis. I'm not offended much by anything, so I'm not sure why everyone else is. 
I care about being the best business owner I can be, making people...
