Non-stop research

These past few days I've been doing nothing but researching copy writing. I am submerging myself into this world. 

I've been receiving great advice from many, many, many people. One of my main takeaways is to start doing work for free for my friends and family. 

Once I get some work started and completed. I'll get my portfolio together and build start moving forward with what I feel will be my new career.

To be 110% honest I'm really nervous. I really don't know what the hell to do. I just know I am a salesman, I really love to write and I've always been the guy trying to do advertising for someone. 

Copy writing seems as thought it would challenge me and make me really apply myself more than ever. 

I went to this toast masters meet up yesterday and this guy asked me "Why do I like to write". I've never had someone ask me that question before and it through me off a little. I sat there for a few seconds to figure out the real reason why and all I could say was I just really enjoy doing it. Writing makes me feel good. It gets me out of my bed in the morning and keep me up at night. 

I don't try to write when I write, I just write. It's also a really great feeling of completion. I've get really lazy at times and I fuck around on social media a lot and there are days I feel like I didn't so shit. 

When I write, I know what I have to do and I know what it takes to finish. Writing makes me feel good because I have complete control over it. It's either I do it or I don't and that's it. No grey areas, no one else to blame, no excuses, it is what it is. You know what you must do to get through whatever your writing by getting to the end. 

I believe this new copywriting venture will work out great. All I know is that I must keep writing and doing work for people. And allow my skills to grow through practice and persistence. 

Wish me luck, 
until the next post.

Have a Great Day today...

When things start feeling right.

I woke up today and got a good walk in. Last night I began reading Gary Halberts Letter and the book begins by him speaking about the being fit and taking care of your health.

Soo of course after reading that last night I woke up and went for a 2 mile walk. I sweated a little bit and brought Eli, my dog. It morning exercise is really great. I feel wide awake right now and ready to attack my day.

The reason why I started reading Gary Halberts Letters Book is because I'm considering getting into copy writing. I really believe this is a career that would be greta for me. I love writing and this career is exactly what I need to do.

I've heard of copy writing before but never dug deep into it. These past few days this is the only thing I've been doing. I've just been listening to people say how difficult it is but very rewarding at the same time.

Now, if you'v been reading my blog for the past few days, you know how serious I have been about finding a job that can allow me to be free and do things. This job is definitely that.

When I think about my life and what I have always done to move forward and grow. I always find myself doing advertising for myself. Without knowing I was creating copy for the past 10 years of my life.

I think this may be it. I'm going to keep pushing towards this and make this happen. It makes the most since and it's something I am proud of. I've always been the guy who like creating ads for something. It's just fun. Being able to create something that gets people to react and buy what they want is always fun.

Spending money is fun. Getting what we want is fun. This career will allow me to have fun and help people have fun by spending their hardworking money on things they want like myself.

I'm going to step up to the plate on this one.

I'm really fucking excited because I think I've finally discovered something that I like to do and it not only pays well. It will allow me to travel and work from my laptop. This is all I really want to do with my life.

I need to travel and experience things. By this Friday I will have a least started working on my website and I'm going to get to writing way more then ever.

Anytime something comes to my mind. It's going to get written down.

This shits really cool. I'm kinda nervous but I'm really not. I really like to sale and I really like to write. These two things are what is required to be a successful copy writer and I feel like that's me.

We will see what happens my friends. Thanks for checking in and I will keep you posted.

If anyone reading this is a copy writer. I would love for you to reach out to me. I'm open to any new copy writer suggestions???

Have a great Tuesday everybody.

Weed helps...

Weed helps me be creative and lowkey more productive. Especially in the morning. When i wake and bake, I fuckin create with ease. I workout, make breakfast read. exercise, meditate and so on. When I don't smoke, I find myself being more lazy.

I don't know why.

I think the weed may be my motivation. My morning driver to get up and get high.

There is something great in being high, like really. Have you ever been really high and tried to be creative. The shit works. At least it works for me.

I think the world needs a weed day, not for 4/20 but actually a real life weed day and everyone gets high. That day in real life would never happen but think of all the great things that would happen if we did have a weed day.

There would probably be minimum violence. It would be like a time of peace and love. Pure good vibes.

Like really, when have you ever heard of a riot or a big fight at a concert, when it was a smoke fest or something in those lines. Never.

The weed is such a beautiful drug. Like right now at this very moment I'm not high. And the thought of being high right now, just puts a big smile on my face.

I remember those morning when I would wake up at 5am just to be able to smoke and write in the mornings. I would spark up on my patio, look at the mountain and get loaded and start the writing.

I don't know why I just wrote about how I feel about weed, but I did.

Marijuana, I appreciate you.lol

If you smoke and have a cool story share it and lets laugh about it.

Until then, I'm out.

ohh and p.s. If my writing is all fucked up and stuff, I didn't reread it.

Good night...

How did you wake up today?

Today when I woke up I had a little mental battle with myself. I was thinking how great it felt laying in my bed. The sun wasn't even lifted high enough to brighten my room. It's fuckin early. Then I thought to myself get your ass up and go write something. Today was the first time in a while I actually listened to myself and got up and started typing. To this exact minute, the sun is still parked underneath the mountains.

I don't know why I told myself to get up and write, but here I am.

I always wonder what people think of my writing. It's like I don't give a damn but I do at the same time. I think I care a little because I want to always find someway to provide value. I always want people to leave me with more than we meet. Either smiling, think about something they haven't thought about in a while or a life realization, just something.

I'm been considered a deep person from some on my friends. I love having conversations where it leads to something about life, our decisions and takeaways. I find myself always being the person to get someone to cry in simple conversations, by simply asking questions Shit gets to real sometimes.

Lowkey, I wonder if people even care about each other anymore. I'm the type of person who treats everyone the same. I enjoy hearing stories and I enjoy telling them as well. But some of the conversations I've had with individuals seem as though no one really asked them questions before. It's weird. I've had a a decent amount of people thank me for just listening.

One thing I fight with is figuring out how to use what I love, to find a career. The only thing I really want to do is travel the world, meet different people and work from my laptop. I swear that's like the dream. Waking up when you feel like it, doing what makes you feel good, building relationships with different people and working hard on your passion.

I wonder how many people struggle to find what they love to do. Like really struggle, that trying stuff and failing, back to back.

I'm starting to believe that most people don't really care about figuring what they love to do. I think most people only care about paying their bills and buying shit. I'm starting to believe those are the real lucky people.

The people who can just watch television or be online all day without any thought of "what am I doing" is dope. I'm around a lot of these types of people and I get it. There is no worry, no expectation of self, no goals, no drive, it's wild.

But to the people who are out in this world going for something. Stay strong and stay as focused as you can on your goals. Possibilities are real, they just take a little time.

Let me know your progression and your thoughts on this book.

Starting a book club.

These past few days me and my good friends Pro have been working with each other for the past few years. We've been inspiring each other and have become each others support system and great friends. 

He's been working on this project called " Bigger Vision " for the past few years and hasn't quite taken it to the next level yet. He's been planning things, working on things and really wants to create a foundation for inspiration and community. 

Recently, I've been drilling in his head he's gotta do more. He's gotta put more things on the board and fail as fast as possible. He has been thinking and talking more, then actually doing. To be honest, I kinda reached a point when I was like bruh, either get serious about this shit or quit and do something else. We've gone back and forth and I think, I've finally pushed through to his head and get him doing more moving.

For some reason we had a discussion yesterday about reading books and we start shooting different ideas to work on. It started off with him saying he was selling some website to people and he was working on some other things. I'm really not sure how the conversation got into books but I ended up saying we need to start a book club. He was like "oh shit, let's do it".

Me being who I am was like not we need to set a date and time as well if we're going to really do this. So we came up with Sunday nights at 9pm-9:30pm to talk about a chapter. The book we decided to start with is Grant Cardones " The 10X Rule". We figured this book would be best because we both had it and wouldn't have to worry about any excuses for not getting this started. 

The goal we came up with is to read and discuss a chapter a week. Every Sunday night we will talk about what we learned form the chapter and our takeaways. Pro has already began brining people aboard. I'm really excited about this. 

We are both, book readers to a certain degree. Meaning we both read a occasion but not consistently.  Hopefully we can use this club as a way to work on our consistency and use the information to help us grow as individuals. 

We're going to call the book club " The Bigger Vision Book Club". 

If you're looking to join please email me at travis@biggervision.com and we'll slide you in the group.

I'll keep you posted in what I'm learning and the progress of the new book club.

The High School Reunion

Today my family and I gathered our things and made our way from our beautiful sunny San Diego to the desert hot Palm Springs. Today my fiançe had her 10 year high school reunion.

It was like a 2 hour drive and we stayed at the Holiday Innnnn. Quick note, nice hotel and I loved the continental breakfast. I think, they do to make sure people get they lazy asses up to get the fuck out the hotel room on time.lol

But it was pretty funny at her 10 year reunion. The conversations were really short with some people and the focus is basically all about the old days. There were a lot of people she said changed a lot. Some lost a lot of weight and people don't recognize, who they were. A few people became gay, a few people unfortunately have passed away and everyone else is still just living in the town stuck, in that hot ass desert.

I thought it was the guts. The conversations started off like, hayyyyuyhh. How you been, what have you been up too. Oh my goodness, I haven't seen you in forever, how's life. Do you gave any kids are you married, where do you live. Ohh my gosh, realllyyy and so on. Shits was hilarious. Some dude got really fucked up. hahahaha

I unfortunately didn't attend my 10 year reunion. My reunion was held on the same day as my little cousins wedding. And that made it really easy for me to decide what I was going to do. Cousins wedding of course.

But after going to my girls reunion, I kinda wish I did go to mine. Low-key.

It is kinda cool seeing all your old friends from high school. Talk some shit to people and just laugh at the old days. Even if you really didn't mess with to many people. It's more of the fact of just going, it's kinda cool.


If your reunion is coming up. Don't be a little punk, just go. Worse thing that will happen, is you'll never see them again.

Does anybody have any funny high school or random reunion stories?

I got a new job.

If you read my previous post, you know how frustration I was with my current employer. Them not trying to grow with this new world we live in. Just sad. They were on my nerves and they acted like they had all the answers, because of their previous success. But they can't realize that the world they use to live in is gone and never coming back.

This is how I wanted to talk to them and them. Kayne said it best for me:




THEY DON'T HAVE THE ANSWERS...

Since, it's not my business and they specifically told, not to don't worry about their business and worry about myself, that exactly what I did. I took things into my own hands and got another job.

I still work with them, on a straight commission bases to help keep the clients I was working with happy. And at the end of the day, we're both still making money from those clients. That's all that really matter to me now, working with them moving forward.

So I start the new job this Monday. I got a job at ADT. Yea, the security company. It's cool, I guess.

The only reason why I have to have a job is because I have a family to take care of. I have my fiance, who makes a few hundred bucks watching our god son/nephew and my 2 year old son.

My real plan is to start a digital marketing company and start building my own clientele. I'm getting better with my marketing skills. I'm currently doing free work to build my skills and I'm taking some online courses. I plan to start really marketing myself toward mid July of this year.

I'm still building my confidence in getting in front of someone and telling them what I can do for them. I've done some facebook ads and seeing the small results I received, I can only imagine what it's going to be like when I really get it. I've also started to reach out to different online digital marketers and their reaching back helping me out and getting me going.

Well see, hopefully I can keep this going and document my progress.

To be honest, I feel like I'm battling with myself to stay focused. I'm reaching a point in my life where I'm really getting tired of the same results. There was a time in my life where I was winning at everything. I had a really nice car with t.v's, rims, loud ass 15" speakers. I lived on my own, my rent was like $1600 a month, I was paying it with ease by myself. I went clubbing damn near everyday, I had a lot of female cuddle buddies and I was shopping all the damn time. I was always the guy that had no problem paying for everybody when we went out. I always had money. Good times.

When I look back at the same time, I realize how much I didn't know and how much more I could've accomplished, if I had the right people in my life. I was just blowing money. But I'm so happy I went through that and did it.

I've learned so much and I have so much experience from all those experiences. I'm really proud of myself. Even though life is not exactly where I saw it would be when I was younger. It's going in the direction I want it to and I'm in full control.

I'll end this here. But man, this new world we live in and the opportunities available to us right now is endless.

Let's all shoot for the galaxies and leave our legacies. I'll be checking back in shortly.

I'll end this post on a great GaryVee note:

My managers SUCK.

My job is great but my managers suck. Like they really, really fucking suck. They don't encourage me or my co-workers to work harder. They only focus on money. I'm not saying that's a bad thing, but when your so focused on just money and your not doing anything to increase awareness to bring in more money there is a HUGE problem.

One thing I've learned from the many books and articles I've read, is the importance of growing your business. If you're not putting in the work to grow and get in front of new clients. Not doing anything to stay in front of your previous or current clients and not focusing on your client retention, your business has an BIG issue.

That is the issue I am going through right now with my current employer. It's really sad. They pull us in the office just to say how bad it is. The numbers are down, we need to get more sales, what's going on with all the orders we use to get and so on. The problem here is their not coming up with ways to get the numbers up. Their only complaining and complaining gets nothing done. Complaining only create a bad environment and lowers the vibrations in the office, which intern only decreases business.

I respect their drive for money and they have a running business, but I don't respect their lack of doing what it takes to get the money they feel their not getting anymore. I'm not sure If someone in their inner circle is causing them to stand still and has a hold on their neck. But they definitely need to get their shit together now.

As an ex business owner and seeing how my business failed, there are 3 things I personally recognize that will help the business dramatically.

First, they need to come up with a plan of action.

Second, they need to listen to the employees and ask what we think can be done to increase revenue for the business.

Third, do something about it. Create goals with deadlines and get shit done.

If anyone reading this has some great insights on how to approach people difficult people in this situation or have any recommendations to work with my management, I'm all ears?

Has any of you dealt with this type of situation before? If so, what did you do?

Good Vibes

Living in San Diego has created a really cool space inside my mind. The vibes from this song just makes me want to go on a cruise down the beach. 

Tribal Seeds great job on this song.

It's been a while..

To the few people who have been hanging on and waiting for me to post. I'm back again.

I go on my blog escapades but I always find myself sinking right back. I've been running this blog for years and it's feels so good to have this space of mine.

I have so many memories of my life on here. I have so many things I've tried to teach on here.lol One thing I've noticed on here is that I always continue to try. Trying makes my life feel so much better and complete.

It's probably bad to that I try so much stuff. But I don't give a damn.

I've learned how to care for people more, how to trust people more and how to love better than I ever have in my life. Trying has led me to personal success. I have many failures and trying things that didn't work in my favor. But to me, it's always been worth the risk.

It does suck, when it sucks though.  Like really,sucks. $2.16 in the bank account with a son a d a wife at home is never a good feeling. Being in that situation has taught me to, always stay positive and keep the best attitude possible.

I'm so determined to succeed in this life of mine. I don't care about going through the shit. The shit is apart of life. I'm really starting to really realize that. Like really, think about the bullshit we go through, time to time. We think to ourselves, Fuucckkk. And after it's all said and done. Nothing really happens but the lessons we learn.

I've learned from trying to read many different books to re adjust the situation by asking myself questions...

Like:

What did I learn from that experience?

What really the most  important thing in my life?

What if I just died right now, is this that serious?

What do I have right now that I'm happy about?

Who do I care about enough to work harder for.

Those few questions have kept me strong and moving the most positive direction of my life. Life is great right now.

I'm definitely going to keep this thing going. I always miss blogging.

I'm growing and I have a long road ahead of me to reach the point, I see in my mind of me. I'm will always fight the good fight and I hope you all, are fighting with me.

Vlog #004 | Doctor visit

I finally had to get ready to go back to work. But before that I had to do my parent duties and take my son in for his yearly check up.

But I'm working on creating videos that are entertaining and hopefully transition them into something more focused on my goals. But we'll see.

Thanks for watching. Let me know what you think.

Vlog #003 | Things Change

Vlog #003, I am trying to get better at telling stories on my channel. It feels good to know the only reason I'm creating these video is to stretch my creativity. It was a fast day for me. I didn't do anything spectacular. On to the next one.

Food | Chicken Connoisseur

The chicken connoisseur is back with his reviews. I remember when I was first introduced to this kid, he only had 20,000 and 30,000 views on his channel. Then once reddit got a hold of it, it was over. This kids getting nothing less then 1,000,000 views minimum with video, another overnight youtube celebrity. This kid is hilarious.

Big Up to Boss Man.

Artist: Rich The Kid

This short noisy documentary on Rich The Kid was chill. I have this interesting fascination with this kid and his career. It's amazing how his music and his era of music is effecting people. This kids grinds, skates and on every video I see him talking he is either loaded ass fuck or loaded ass fuck.lol But he works his ass off, this kid get mad respect from me. He's making his money and making his dreams come true.

It's sucks how much hate he receives from the older generation of rapper who hate his style. It's like they don't understand that he looked up to them but didn't want to be them. But that the end of the day, that hate is going to keep him on top of what ever he is trying to do.

Vlog | 002 - No Buckets

So this turned out to be a great day. I pulled out the waffle maker and made some cheese quesadilla waffles. Then I got out of the house and shot around the court with my boy Isaiah. The short shoot around made me realize how much I need to get back into the the gym.smh lol

Happy New Year!! πŸŽ‰

New Years Resolution from Gary

Words from the Internet Boss. Gary Vaynerchuk

The YouTube Vlog has begun...

I've been thinking about Vlogging for sometime now and I finally said fuck it. I started December 28th, 2016. I have a lot to learn about storytelling and create videos that flow.

I didn't want to start on the New Year 2017 so I started today. I have a lot to learn and get use to but this will be a great new venture in my life.

Fashion | 2016 Best Men's Style Brands of 2016

I think Levis is the most classic and respected American brand of all time. It does not have to try to represent anything but the American People. That's one of my favorites for the year followed by Supreme. Nothing like a fresh dark navy pair of Levis, black/white Chuck Taylor All Star high top classics and a white Supreme Red Box logo shirt.

Music | 2 Chainz - Big Amount feat Drake

Song: This song is a banger. We all know just about every song Drake is featured on is going ot be a banger. Well here's another for the books.

Video: I really like how this video was made at the concert and how the editor brings the live footage in and out of the video. It lowkey look like someone followed 2 Chainz around and got creative. I think more artist should do video like these.

Let me know what you think?

Music | Big Sean - Bounce Back

Song: Fuckin Big Sean never stops and I never will stop making hits. This is one of those songs you can turn up on in a club or a party. Dj's are definitely going to be spinning this track, especially in the strip clubs.

Video: The visuals for this video were dope. The colors are dope and the upside down ocean/city was dope as well. I like how they threw the phat ass's in there but not to much. The big ass moon in the background looked cool. I do think the video was a little repetitive.

Let me know what you think?

Hip-Hop's First Billionaire

This is huge for hip hop community. To see this mogul scale himself to the degree to be in route of becoming the first hip hop industry billionaire says a lot about the hip hop culture and the direction it's going. Puffy is breaking all the rules that were set against him, especially being a black american in this country.

The second it's officially announced he's a billionaire I'm going to play Bad Boy records, all day.lol Biggy would be proud. Mad respect Sean John Combs.

Music | Migos - Bad and Boujee ft. Lil Uzi Vert

I can't stop playing this song. The beat goes hard, it's swaggy and the video turns the video up. Listen to this with speakers or good earphones.

Music | Travis Scott - Biebs in the trap feat. NAV

New video alert. Travis finally drops a video off his birds in the trap album. I think this is his first video drop off the album.

Song: It's interesting how he named this song biebs in the trap, I get it. This song is a banger. I highly advise to play this at a house party. This album is actually a banger, there are a few songs that I would pass through but all in all Travis goes up. Plus we have the same name.lol

Video: It's kinda what ever. It's cool as hell watching them do donuts in the Lamborghini Aventador. The models wearing white with the plastic on the face, idk. But the coke'd out girl at the end of the video, brings the whole idea of the song together.

Let me know what you think?

Music | Desiigner - Tiger

Even though this may only be  snippet of the song, it goes up. I think the beat and his flow riding the beat sounds dope. This is definitely not a a lyrical song at all. But I don't turn on Desiigner for lyrics n-e-ways sooooo.

But it sounds dope, this little snippet will get a a club, a party crackin.

12.19.2016 update

These past few months have been the most uplifting months of this year. I'm starting to understand who I am as a person and what I really want to do with my life. I'm piecing together the things that are necessary for me to become a better person and a better man. I feel a drive that I really haven't felt since I started my clothing brand and opened my store, years ago. That experience was so fucking amazing, I feel blessed to have experienced the things I have, now it's time for a new chapter.

I needed to get that out of my head and on this screen. This blog is not popular,  but it's more of a personal blog for myself to be able to go back and reflect on my life. I feel a since of freedom writing out my thoughts. This blogs allows me to not give a fuck and let myself out. My mind is so stretched out with information with all the things I've experienced in my life. The only thing missing on this blog is more of me. I could do so more writing and so much more posting but I find myslef over thinking myself out of it. Yesterday for instance. I was going to put together a list blog things to blog about for this week. So, when I sat down in front of my computers and starting over thinking all of the things that had to be done and I did nothing.

These thoughts that run through my mind keeps me so strong. It makes me fear things because I feel like I'm am so stretched. But in reality I'm not that stretched at all.

I am into motorcycles, off road shit. One of my good friends Jeremy, who recently lost his father, has a Rzr 4 1000. That shits super fast and fun ass hell. He is also the manager of a motorcycle/ off road shop, where I worked for 5 years. Working at Mountain Motorsports made me love all that crazy shit, now I'm a motohead. I also had my clothing store and clothing brand. The brand was very heavy into street wear culture. The brand life had the biggest effect on me as a person and now when I look at fashion and the trends, I understand how controllable it'll always be. I also worked at Ritz Camera shop for some years, so I'm heavy into photography and videos creation.

While going through my transition after I quit doing my clothing brand stuff, I start trying out a bunch of different things. I tried starting a video company and with boy Sunny and it didn't work out. Then I tried to start a vintage clothing store in my shop and that didn't work out either. I also tried starting a coffee shop in my shop as well. While in the mist of getting the coffee shop going, my wife had this idea of us moving to San Diego, as I call in sales she began dropping seeds.

At first I was like nawww, it sounds cool but naww. My job at the Mountain Motorsports was the shit. I worked with my homiees, we smoked, I knew everything, the rim sizes, the speeds, the clutches, the exhaust, the best first bike for the new riders, the best gloves, the fastest funniest bikes, the common over heating problems with rzr's, everything. I made really good money, actually my old co-worker Bobby in sales is making over $100K this year. [good shit bro].

At the same time I would go to a mindset meeting with my guys Pro and Rasheed every tuesday night about our goals and visions of the future. One major thing I learned from that mindset gathering was how I want to help the world and help give people opportunities.

To fast forward back to now, I worked at a company called 220 Marketing Group, we sold websites to mortgage lenders. We would talk about seo, ppc, and different ways to keep your old clients close and new clients closer. It taught me the bases of digital marketing. After working there, I didn't like how management was so I quit there and start working as a Brand Specialist at Promoventures. This job is great. I sell promotional items, tee shirts, embroidery, everything with a logo. It's fucking dope.

Through all the experiences , I've learned to love myself more. I've learned how much I enjoy learning and how much I want to act on thoughts way more. One thing I will focus on from now on and into the forever is how to keep myself busy and waste less time. I find myself wasting time and not doing anything constructive. This is one thing I am trying to commit myself to do more of.

I have dreams of inspiring the world and teaching people that we all deserve a shot. I want to help people get that shot and and people step up to plate.

It's one thing to have cheerleaders and customers. It's another thing to help bring customers to you, your business and ultimately change your lifestyle. There is nothing like having help from people who genuinely want to help you and help you succeed.

My legacy is my mission in life. What I leave behind is what I care about most, not what I have now. Father life has taught me a very important life idea, always try harder and be as best as you can.

When life throws you fruits, eat em.

I will end it on this note, but I'll keep these going. It feels good to let me mind go and just write.

Good Day Tuesday.

Formed in Huntington Park, California in 1981 by Jeff Hanneman, Kerry King, Tom Araya and Dave Lombardo, the group started off by playing cover songs at parties, as well as clubs. The aggressive and creative nature in all facets of their artistry has allowed the band to create twelve albums and sell 20 million records.

Joe Rogan Society Trap

I've been having a this huge fascination with this guy lately. His thought process and the way we should think and live is not a new way of thinking. But more of a deeper way of thinking.

I think I'm becoming a huge fan. Check out this video. Let me know your thoughts?

He's really done with his daily vlog.

I can't believe Casey Neistat is finished his vlog. But since he has finished his daily vlog, it makes me questions myself on what I'm doing and what changes I can make and contribute to this world. His vlog really impacted me without really realizing it. I really watched his video like a my own personal youtube television show and I am truly going to miss him.

But knowing he is still going to be posting video's makes me feel way better. I need his creativity in my life, to inspire me. I'm really happy for his company being purchased by Cnn and I am happy for his new journey.

We support you Casey Neistat and we appreciate you brother. Can't wait till the next video.

Great interview Kanye West

This was such a great interview from Kanye West. When I listen to Kanye speak, I try to really listen to what he is saying without judgement. He speaks his truth and tries to help. While at the same time, he gets criticized most from people who don't speak and only care about themselves with negative talk. We need speakers in this world. We need people willing to speak out to spark the minds of people. We need people who don't fucking care and speak truth of wishing things will be better for the world.

That's the Kanye West I hear when he speaks. I don't know many artist in 2016 who are so influential as an Artist. I do not agree with every action he makes but I understand what he is truly trying to accomplish for the world.

I appreciate him and I'm thankful for his existence on planet earth. This is a great interview, put your personal feelings aside if you do not like him and listen or you can pass, it's your choice. I think this is a interview that should be heard.

Let's go Wednesday.

I wrote today instead of taking my class.

My morning schedule is usually like. Get up  at 6:00am take my online class on Hubspot, blog, exercise, eat and go to work. Today I said fuck it and start writing. I think I wrote about 3 blogs today which was fucking dope. I am really proud of myself doing this today instead of sticking to my normal schedule.

I posted on my motorcycle blog oopierre as well and I feel good. I also listened to some Kanye West interviews, listened to what some people thought about him. If you notice I posted one of the interviews as well, great interview. I wrote up on one of my favorite youtube vloggers Casey Niestat. I also reached out to this young lady April who is going to be one of my future writing buddies, she trying to find herself in her words and I can't wait to see what she puts out to the world. 

I'm changing as a person and I like it. I see myself going towards a dream I have. I want to inspire and motivate the world the best that I can. 

Welp, time for work. Have a great day today guys and gals and I thank who ever listens and reads my shit. I'm just a man with a dream and I'm pushing more then ever.

Promote yourself and have patience

This morning in my Hubspot class they touched on the importance of promoting yourself. It's so important, especially if you are trying to accomplish goals. For some reason, that class made me think of Kevin Hart. He's one of the most influential people to me. He talks about success, life, goals, health and making himself become his thoughts. He's dominated television, social media and comedy with his wild character and his promotional and marketing efforts is out of this world.

I'm happy Evan put this video together for Kevin Hart. Press play and listen.


You have to stay positive, surround yourself with great people and keep moving forward. You have to be patient and you have to invest into yourself, follow your dreams. Do shit that makes you uncomfortable, do shit. The best thing a you can do is push yourself to do something you think, is the right. Don't stop pushing keep moving and don't give up on yourself.

You are on my blog for a reason and this is could be that reason. If not and your good thank you for being here.

I'm trying to inspire the world people. One word and one action at a time.

Let's Go.

The Goal Chasing begins.

I decided to put things into action and began a Content Marketing course through HubSpot. My goal in getting an internship as a digital marketer is in motion. I started this course because they offer a certificate in Content Marketing when completed.

 Blasting through the course with ease was the plan, but boy was I wrong. I have to change my gears and my approach to this class. Shits kinda tuff. I began watching videos in the course blind and thinking I was on the correct path. I didn't notice the damn study guide on the side of the screen.

That would've sucked If I didn't see that damn guide.smh lol

My action plan is to take two courses a day. When I complete course, I'll run through it two times, get a firm understand of the text and take the test.

The goal is to pass the test, receive my certificate and begin reaching to marketing companies. That's my plan and I'm sticking to it. Let's see how it all works. My goal is to have an internship started or in the workings by January 1, 2017.

Plans for the rest of 2016...

My morning began with a nice warm cup of tea, my iphone in hand and the Medium articles displayed. I read this article about letting yours self go on a blog and let write out personal goals. The article says It makes you take more responsibility for you actions and hold you more accountable to yourself and your goals. I've also read articles and books saying the complete opposite and to keep your personal goals to yourself. Me being the personal I am and going against the grain, I actually like the fact of putting out my ideas and dreams out to the world. I look at it like, If I died before I could accomplish these goals, my son, grand kids, great grand kids can say I had my head in the right place. Also, when I accomplish the goals I write out and actually make them happen, I can look at myself as a prophet of my own destiny and I kinda like that idea.

So lets dive.

I want to end this year as a Content/Digital marketer intern. I've posted many blogs and I create many videos/photos to help promote myself and many people inside and outside my circle. I've had days just sitting and thinking of what I want to do with my life and reflect on what I would do If I could do anything and making money was not an option. After days upon days of thinking, I realized how much I enjoy helping people mentally, physically, emotionally and financially. I have this sense of joy being able to help people live out their dreams and making their ideas come to life. I've read many articles on how not everyone thinks that way. Most people want million of millions of dollars, just to have it. I personally want a different life from that. I want to experience more joy in helping others by mental gains and leave a legacy. 

The thing that changed my life was starting a clothing line, having a store, and building it. That experience lifted my confidence and now I only make decisions based off how I feel and if it's the right thing to do. A lot of people don't realize that money is not the answer. Being a black american, I have been brought up thinking I need to become something great and make a lot of money to feel great about myself and feel successful. Now money is very important, but thats what you chase. It's the goals you chase. The chasing in the goals create the person you have always wanted to be and the feeling of being the person you thought you were and could be feels so good, but a lot of people do not see it that way.

That's were I find myself standing, because I personally do not believe money will make me feel great. Money is great to have and I would love to have a larger bank account, no denying that. But if my life ended and I didn't reach that money part of my life, I refuse to believe life could have been better. Life is fucking great and I want every person especially living in america to feel like me. Love life, have fun, enjoy the small things, cherish our friends and family. That's what life's about and I believe chasing your dreams and goals help me have this feeling.

That's where my goal to become a Digital/Content marketer comes from. I feel like I will be able to help many accomplish their goals, while helping me accomplish mine as well. I've studied many job descriptions and the digital/content marketer works best. My ultimate goal would be, to run my own office and have people smarter then me, more talented, happier, funnier, high drive'd people all under one house. The sole purpose would to help change the world by helping people live their dreams by helping them spread their message. Help them find their message and construct their message to the masses and allow them to succeed. Even if we do not make people super millionaires that would be up to them and what their personal goals. We would be the group of individuals going to the hood, talking to the kids, educating them on the now and how to grow. Show them the power of them and the power of marketing.

It's amazing how many people to this day, do not believe in the power of the internet and marketing. This shit has changed my life and  the fucking world. I'm jump in this craziness to leave my mark and create a legacy as best as I can.

So thats my plan for the rest of 2016.

My current job puts in me alignment with that goal. I am currently a brand specialist for a print and promotional product shop. I've attached my video below, so you can check out what I do at my job. I am going to get on top of my blogs and videos now that I have my computer back up and running. 

If you need help with any branding or enjoy having idea conversations and DO things. Hit me up. If you can Help me out on this journey, to help the world through branding reach out to me. I have so much to learn, but If you've followed my blog for the years, you'll understand helping and branding is my WHY.


Happy Belated Thanksgiving

New Day. Time for a change.

 My computer has been down and I have not been able to post the type of post I traditionally like to do. But I am going to continue posting from my cell phone until I get my computer fixed. I refuse to use my lack of having  my computer accessibilty to stop me from posting on this blog. I am going to try to get back into my daily habit and give you information that can help you become the person you dream of becoming or at least help you think about the possiblites. Thank you for continuously following my blog I will continue giving you as much is me as possible.

 With Trump being a new president I'm going to use this as a pusher and not a resistor.  I have many friends so stuck in the world of now that they're not moving and they're holding themselves back because they're focused on the wrong things. I'm going to use this presidency to help build my brand and my community of people who want more for themselves and who are willing to put in the work. I plan to be the prime example of the work to myself and whoever whats to watch.  I do not have a team yet, but I am working on that and I'm going to continue pushing until I begin making difference and deserve to have one. For the next 4 years, I'm challenging myself to push harder then I've ever pushed before.

 Ever since I stopped doing my clothing brand. I discouraged myself and start thinking about what people thought of me and my clothing brand failure. I am finally done. My friends, my family, the people who I inspire and the people in my circle, deserve more of me. Please continue supporting what I am tryjng to do. Which the only thing I know is I am doing is pushing positivity and building myself as a person and help people build themselves as well and understand the power of branding.

Thanks again.

 Product on product on product is coming.
