no right or wrong answer only our personal answer, so what is yours?
the age of sensory overload makes it easy to be overwhelmed with choices
understand and accept
now, now now
Is your Goal to be linked to a highly capitalized business plan? Thats fine , start the work, start the dialogue , educate yourself and #GO
If it is NOT, then this is for YOU
2.Is it a #Bootstrapper situation? With the equity leveraged being #SweatEquity ? Yes? Start Today, anyway possible, just start.
Realize the money is a Excuse and a Story we will begin to realize that being Bootstrapped many times is a distinct advantage especially early on.
So many times highly capitalized start ups have no true communication with the very people that they are attempting to become important to.A sledgehammer approach. Sure it may catch the Tribes glances at first, after all its the loudest in the room and very shiny! Inevitably they lose out because the devil is Always in the details and the little things matter.Sooner or later we will know!
The Bootstrapped on the other hand, they have genuine communication, genuinely care and hold a deep desire to matter to their Tribe. They may not be able to show up as loudly or as shimmeringly adorned but they care. They do great work and the do it everyday. They know the lingo and all the secret handshakes because the are in the club and when we realize that we embrace them and look past their flaws. Because after all, “People like US, we do things like THIS”, what else we do is help our own get to the finish line because they CARE. As a Small, Niche, Bootstrapper brand we can be very nimble and iterate on the fly.
The most difficult aspect is once a Goal is established and a plan has been set it is time to choose the vehicle…and Buckle IN.
In my humble opinion exhausting Choices are what torment a wide eyed Freelancer or Entrepreneur. Don’t be doomed to the fate such as befell Narcissus;
“Nemesis, the goddess of retribution and revenge, learned what had happened and decided to punish Narcissus for his behaviour. She led him to a pool; there, the man saw his reflection in the water and fell in love with it. Although he did not realise in the beginning that it was just a reflection, when he understood it, he fell in despair that his love could not materialise and committed suicide.”
I have been in this sort of “Holding pattern” regarding the #Work I really am passionate about doing. I believe partly because its new and I fear looking stupid. I also believe it is due to the #Resistance #Lizardbrain attacking.
I remind myself daily that there is no “Right way” or “Wrong way” ONLY MY WAY to create my #Utopia Company.
As Derek Sivers wrote
“When you make a business, you get to make a little universe where you control all the laws.”
Below I am reposting a Blog entry that describes the vision I have. I will print it out today. I will edit, iterate, and I swear to all I will #DO
#MOREMOREMORE Its Time I #ACT and #DO what I know needs to be done….The microphone is collecting dust…Time to #Matter
Welcome , I am so thankful for you even viewing my Video Blog this much! I truly appreciate it. I will promise that as this progresses I will strive to always make it 100% about delivering fully open and transparent Diet, supplement, training information unfiltered to you.
How will this differ from some of the absolutely great work being done already? I hope from my perspective as a 45 year old, lifelong bodybuilder, athlete in my quest for optimizing myself I am honestly able to add value in someone else’s quest towards their version 2.0
So lets begin,
It is at the moment 1:15am Monday January 30th
I am coming off of a loose eating weekend
The last meal for Sunday January 29th was a #Keto dinner at 7pm
I will now Intermittent Fast Monday and Tuesday to most effectively drop into Ketosis
Today I will wake at 5am to a 16oz glass filtered water with Organic lemon juice and my Core supplements
( Proteolytic Enzyme complex)
( Comprehensive liver Formula)
( formula designed to aide in the efficiency of fats)
I will really limit anything outside of Water and 2 cups black coffee
Update Tuesday 12:15 AM
Day was great
Energy was high
Just wrapping up 18 hours of Hustle and doing
Monday was a Off day from training
Today I will do a brief MWOD session for recovery enhancement as well as to prevent injury.
My diet will be Filtered water and 2 Cups of Coffee
My Meal will be 7Pm
I have been back and forth on training volume/intensity and have settled on a HIT total body program
A- Chest/ Arm Focus
C-Back /Delt Focus
Each day will begin with one of (A,B,C) followed by 4 exercises 1xFailure each to cover total body stimulation.
Post each HIT session I will consume Carbohydrates ( Undecided in what form) I am actually leaning towards 5% Nutritions REAL FOOD…Its a great Carb product that delivers high quality unrefined carbs which should be perfect!
Stay Tuned Everyone and feel free to ask away with questions
We have never in the history of mankind possesed such ability to connect to every single place on the planet.
Growing up in the 1980s this would have been laughed at by the majority
and we have it in our hands, on a hand held computer, the smartphone
Intelligence is a swipe or click away at any second through #Google , #Wikipedia and many more
So much Positive and Great things about living in the modern age
shameful that we are forced to view the 2% Bad by media of all forms
Opportunity like Never before
Amazing Beautiful times we live in…
With all this good opens the doors to the scammer…the manipulator
In what I do, Brand Direction, Strategic development I LIVE/LOVE on the razors edge of #Passion…I get it, Im a total #Anomaly and thats totally perfect FOR ME…but what I want to describe are to polar opposites that are I see in the space I occupy and leave feedback to you…
(Given a Promising opportunity not 100% in their skill set)
The #Practitioner: Says YES (Always to great Opportunity ) Learns , Studies, Pushes boundaries to Master the craft- Yes to become a #Practicioner
This is a #linchpin a Risk Taker and a rare find
2. The #Jobber: Says YES ( looking to mystify as long as possibly) Meetings that go no place, creating busy work for everyone to create a illusion of work. As George Costanza famous did in the Seinfeld episode with “The Penskie File”.
This is a leech and by no means a PRO at anything but creating a theatrical illusion
Unfortunately brands should blame no-one but themselves.
Why? Because usually I find companies to be Exactly where they deserve to be
Why? Because they want shortcuts, Why? Because they want to live a 9-5 work life, Why? Because they think social media is ok to automate, That they don’t need to have a Direct Relationship of Gratitude to the people who literally keep their lights on! UGH!
They often ACT like they “get It” BUT 99.9% they DO NOT
The moment they get the #Jobber “pitch” the BUY!
YOU CANNOT FAKE CARING FOR LONG,
YOU WILL BE FOUND OUT….
SO CARE …and if the Story you are being “Pitched” seems too good, too everything to everyone It probably IS
