Where to start?

The ultimate paralyzing question

But very necessary

What do you care about?

What do you want to create community around?

Is it being done?

Is it being done generously and with intent?

It all starts with a question seemingly easy but not really if we look within

“What is the change we seek to make?” And for WHO?

In my life, and in my career I have been part of cash poor startups that soared and part of highly capitalized brands that cannot get out of their own way.

I have seen amazing innovation stifled by egos

I have seen growth mindset in action

What is common amongst winners

1. Ability to see a goal

2. Starting ( as Steve Jobs famously stated ” Real Artists ship”)

3. Knowing exactly who it is for( because you can never have them all)

4. Knowing what the change they seek to create is

5. Thick skin for Haters because everyone has this to overcome to do the bad work that eventually leads to the good and sometimes, Great work

It is always about taking and putting on your plate only what you can finish.

It also comes down to maximizing connections

As I start out to do the work of creating the T2 experiment the change I seek to create is to create consciously connected people seeking something more

Within that is the passionate mission to enlighten a healthy ketogenic lifestyle and truly alter & optimize each one of us

This I promise will be fun

What will you offer

Connection Society

People who can :img_1667

Influence your companies growth

Influence your Sales

Companies that could provide rewarding opportunities for you

All a #DM away

The greatest reward will go to the greatest #Hustle #Grind #Work

but lets NOT FORGET one crucial fact:

Deliver #VALUE

Not what YOU perceive as #Value

What “They” see as #Value

Don’t be Arrogant

Don’t be UN Engaged

Offer “Something that they cannot refuse” and

Offer is without a HOOK

Drive #Value and Earn #TRUST

Then , only Then, set the Hook and land the Opprotunity

#Care MORE #peopleMatter

Hope you are seeing this common theme in all I do…Its in my DNA

 

 

my “Jerry McGuire” moment

“I’ve lost the ability to bullshit” from Jerry McGuire

So it seems I have as well

There have been many Change Catalysts

The #AltMBA #SethGodin #Linchpin #Pokethebox #Purplecow  #theresistance #dothework #Stevenpressfield #Stoicism #TimFerriss #myFamily #my Daughter #Epictetus #Seneca #MarcusAurelius #GrowthMindset #DerekSivers #SimonSinek #StartwithWhy #ZigZiglar

I am missing many and I will hopefully add many many others I my journey continues

How have I changed?

I have changed in my #Mindset. Learning every day. Trusting the process more everyday day. Respecting it.

 

I have evolved

Its left me with that deep understanding that there is MORE I must do

That Products are not remarkable, a True Story filled with #Generosity (for the right reasons) and #Empathy is.

A Story that ultimately tells us WHY you do what you do

and more importantly WHY we should care?

A sense of security that we cannot be everything to everyone and thats actually a pretty great way to be

Its as Zig Ziglar stated and I respectfully repeat daily “Be a meaningful specific, not a wandering generality”

Be a meaningful specific…Matter More, Care More, People DO MATTER

Wake up happy to engage with your Tribe

Live by the mantra Seth Godin states “People Like US do things like THIS” but unlike all the manipulators- MEAN IT DAMN IT!

Going through the #altMBA was eye opening for me and life altering, its really and truly NOT about added features or “Widgets” and its 100% Not about Price manipulations

Its about Mattering to someone dearly and learning how to matter more – showing you care

It brings me back to the manifesto and how this all ties in ( sloppily at times however Im a work in progress…on my way…striving towards that ultimate goal of Virtue)

I LOVE the industries I am in

I LOVE what I do

In general

I HATE, DESPISE, have absolute DISDAIN for the manipulative manner brands position themselves…Its almost as disgusting as #politics

I simply don’t get it

So I feel its my right and responsibility to do my part, my part and not directly for personal gain. I hope that doing the right thing creates a new movement and if I benefit from that- awesome!

Here are the Problems I see

  1. Brands are created out of one sole vision- Money, Grow, Sell. Thats Fine by business standards but we need more.
  2. Brands Create “touchy feely” story based on Spin. A Truthful story as to WHY you do what you do matters. “People don’t buy what you do they buy WHY you do it” Simon Sinek . A brand can create a illusion however eventually they will slip, mis a detail and then we will know its a manipulation NOT a Story.
  3. Brands are created for the Mass- Think about it. Whats so special about mass produced, commoditized goods? In the Natural/sports nutrition industries commodity we have too much of. Give us the “outliers” the “Fringe” “small Batch”
  4. Brands Broadcast they don’t engage- why? you guessed it, they do not care
  5. Brands don’t understand #Remarkable often doesn’t SCALE…
  6. Sales teams Bastardize Science- I can promise that whats coming will be very Unpopular with these folks and embraced by the victims of the lies.

Consider this a sort of Project Veritas of the Natural Products/ Sports Nutrition industries

How? Who? What? Ok, Ok

Keep it Simple

I am a nostalgic kind of person. I realized this long ago. I have been described as “old fashioned” to “a old soul ” and I gravitate if left to my own devices to… Simplicity.
In my 42 years I accept and embrace these “facts” and wear them as medals of honor. I say how absolutely arrogant are we that we believe in essence we can improve upon and innovate on that which needed not improving.
Enter exercise or more specifically bodybuilding. I have spent a career and long before totally wrapped up and fascinated by the ability to sculp, alter and improve what we are given by The Lord as a starting point. I would like to note at this point that ultimately genetics should always with proper diligent work and determination win out.
What I must state, that needs to be said is when I look at my industry in Sports supplements and training specifically it is not improving. In fact it seems transparent to population as a whole- weak.
Not weak in a physical sense but weak, lame, without passion. Oh let me guess another magic pill or amino blend from another dimension!
My memory takes me back. I remember scraping together my quarters, nickels and dimes and begging mom to drive me to Harry’s health food store-Yes at one time body builders and health nuts were one in the very same. This Is exactly part of the concept I intend on attempting to bring back to the sport I love, even if only to the few that embrace my writings. If my writings help a few then I did as intended in paying it forward.
I will be initially posting as often as a possible. My initial focus will be two part- reviewing what confusion is rampant in Diets, Supplements,training systems and yes Drugs. I will have no issue laying negativity to those that deserve it and those complete deliberate frauds beware. I will also happily endorse and advocate the many true beacons that are still present but muted by the fantastic sensationalism and sex appeal of mainstream corporate marketing.
Funny but in the end the only thing true was in the start.
So I will be starting my first posts and reviews discussing Food. No matter your goal and desire Food. Quality not quantity. Learning food in its simplest form will build the start point on which we grow stronger, healthier, more assertive.
So initially I will educate and endorse much. I will enlighten as to ingredients to fear and foods to avoid. I will give credit where it is rightfully due and begin the networking of each that reads my writings to the many that inspire me and deserve it.
So with that being said I end my pilot post as I will all future posts,

Live life passionately
