Okay. I've been super missing in action on my blog for ther past few days.

3 Steps for Guaranteed Success

Do you want to be successful?

I hoped out of my bed, walked into my office and pop'd open my laptop. I then landed on this random video from Mr. Vivek Bindra . He's so full of energy, he's pumped up and packed with great information.

He hit on some great points and delivered some insightful information. These steps are easy to accomplish and will definitely help you think begin seeing changes in your life.

Now, if you want success, you have to have create a plan. 

See the steps below and apply them to your life daily to help you reach your goals and watch how success begins to happen in your favor.

1. Know What You Want

Set a goal and become clear. You need clarity. You need to focus on specific goals. You need to know what you and what you have to do.

This clarity will allow you to live with purpose.

When you know what you want, know where your going and know what has to be completed, growth begins happening in your life. Apply this to all areas of your life and see a huge change inyour and your life.

2. When You Stretch You Grow. 

When you stretch your limits you stretch your mind. You have to change your limits and expand your mind of what your think you can do. When you expand your limits, great things begins to happen. 

You have to stretch yourself. You have to push pass those limiting beliefs you've previously had and dominate yourself. You must find the motivation, the power, the thing inside of you that makes you act and go for it.

Once you begin stretching yourself you can and will become limitless. When you feel limitless  you can do anything.

Set higher goals for yourself. 10X your current goals right now!

With this mindset and right work ethic, the world is yours. 

3. Any You Cannot Measure You Cannot Improve.

You have to know the analytics. You have to know the results of what your doing. You have to be able to measure what your doing and keep track.

When you create a plan and begin doing the necessary things to move towards your goals you have to measure, so you can see things happening. This will give you the will power to keep acting and you will begin believing in yourself.

You have to focus on the end result and take each step necessary to reach that goal.

Plan, control, organize, actuate. 

Start now. Begin figuring out what you want to do and set some stretch goals today. 

Get out a pen and paper, a laptop or your cell phone and begin brainstorming. 

Take notes and begin acting them, Now.

Make sure your creating goals that are beyond you and stretch yourself. 

Understand the end result and begin tracking your daily actions to get you where you want to go.

Follow these three steps daily and watch things in your life begin to change.

Update | I'm starting a new job.

Welp, it happened.

I was working for ADT security systems and I couldn't take it anymore. This was one of those, get over people sales jobs and I just can't-do it.

If you've ever seen guys walking around your neighborhood or your business with the blue stop sign on their chest, it was an ADT security salesman.

The job started out okay. I meet some really cool people, I got to travel to Texas but it's just not the sales job for me.

When I would call sold clients,  they would go off on me, yell at me and start talking about how annoyed they were with our services.

At first, I thought this would be a great company. Just think about it, we're protecting peoples homes, their families, their businesses, their investments. That's fulfilling.

But that was not the case.

People felt like we were getting over them. Now I'm not that type of salesman. I'm the type of salesman that likes selling things that make people happy and I help them get what they want and need.

Like after a purchase they felt like they received something they loved and they use it and it makes them feel fulfilled. Just like when I buy stuff.

But that was not the case. Most people felt like it was a waste of money. It's just one of those things that you need but doesn't really want to buy.

People really just wanted a low price and I don't blame them.

It's just like car insurance. You want the lowest price with the best coverage. But in the alarm business,  as long as the police are called most customers could really give a damn for the prices. There wasn't a HUGE benefit to going with ADT. At the end of the day, all the services were kinda the same.

ADT is the largest and first alarm company. They started the alarm business, that's cool. They have more service areas around the country to help customers. But they didn't put the customers first. They way they treated customers kinda sucked. With the company being so big, it took forever just to get a technician to come by and check your issues. Which didn't make any fucking sense?

They would try and charge customers for everything. The customer would call and they would be charged for a tech just to come look at their issues. It's fucking ludicrous.

At the end of the day, there was no real benefit going with them over any other alarm company that made them dramatically different.

They weren't innovative, they weren't up to date on new technology. Just another old company that's waiting for some new dope tech company to come take it over.lol

Sorry I had to get that out. That job was so hyped out when I started. They really knew how to paint the dream. smh

Sooo you're probably thinking. Okay, Travis. You're quitting ADT, now what are you going to do?

To be honest, I wanted to work for an advertising agency. I've been submitting application after application and they have not responded to me. That's my dream.

Just imagine coming into work, wearing regular clothes. I have swag I'll look good and using my mind to build businesses and create innovative things, come up with different strategies and make companies succeed and grow. That's what the fuck I'm talking about. That's the dream.

But it's taking to long for a response. I'm a father, my wife is a stay at home mom and I'm the bread winner. On top of that, I live in one of the most beautiful and expensive places in the country, San Diego. Sooo, I had to make a rational decision and go back to what I know, what I like and what I'm good at. And I'm back to selling vehicles.

Yes, cars. My boy works at the local Honda dealership and I called just to say what up and it turned into me asking him, " Hey bro, yall hiring"?

When I told him that, he said they have an opening in their Internet department. I was like oh shit that'll be dope. Then this guy says, " hold on bro, let me see if I could get you an interview".

15 minutes later he calls me back and says come down to the shop and let the general manager interview you today. I was like ohh shit.lol

So of course, I went down, got interviewed and got hired on the spot.

I'm still going through the hiring process but I was interviewed by two of the managers and they obviously liked me since they hired real quick. So, I'm almost officially a new internet salesman at DCH Honda in Mission Valley.

This shit happened way too quick.lol

I needed a new job though. I didn't go into too much detail on how this job at ADT drained my bank account. I'm fuckin living on fucking credit cards right now.smh All bad.

But we'll see how it works out.

I'm still not giving up my dream of working at an advertising agency. I just want the experience to help me build my own agency. Hopefully, this new job puts me a better financial situation to help build my agency like I want.

I will never give up on my dream.

I might have to do some Grant Cardone stuff and start a youtube channel talking about sales and success. Who knows. lol

One thing I do know is, I'm selling cars again and people love buying cars. People love Hondas, I even own a Honda.lol

I know when I follow up with my clients, they'll be happy and excited about their purchase. I can have fun with my customers again and make people smile again. I'm kinda of excited.

I gotta get outta here and get through my last week here at ADT. Watch me start selling a bunch of alarms before I leave.lol

I wouldn't even care, I'm so over it. I'm thankful for this new opportunity, wish me luck.

Have a great day today bruh bruh. Talk to you soon.

Want to become a Millionaire ideas?

If you want to become millionaire and you're not yet, Listen Up!

If you listen to people give you advise about the the routes needed to become a millionaire,  choose the right people to listen to.

In this new world we live in, there are so many different opinions and ideas of becoming a millionaire. 

After I watched this video by Engineered Truth [video below] put together, it made me realize how interesting perspectives are, when trying to becoming a millionaire and taking advise.

Don't listen to anyone who doesn't make you feel happy about what you're doing. If you're a person who likes to work your face off and you don't believe in having a life, certain people maybe the perfect for you to listen to.

But if you want to have a life and enjoy yourself while becoming a millionaire, listen to people who are happy and are millionaires. 

I don't think either guy on this video is wrong. Their just two different people with two different perspectives. 

You just gotta "Do You".

Working hard daily, learning from your mistakes, building a great team and getting shit done is what it's about at the end of the day.

This video really made me laugh and I had to post it. 

Let me know your thoughts on this " How To Become A Millionaire " reaction video.

Do you agree or disagree with his reaction?

Update | I'm starting my Media Company.

I've finally found a partner, my company has begun.

These past few months, I've been wanting to do something to help people like yourself make money.

My goal in life is to help make as many people rich as possible. I want to help poor people, middle class people, rich people, everyone.

The name of my company is Ventum Media. The word "Ventum" is latin for breeze. And that's exactly how I want people to look at my company. Like it's a fucking breeze to work with us. 

I see so many companies with people who only focus on the marketing and creative side of building marketing businesses. I starting to understand what makes us different.

I've been a salesman for the last 15 plus years of my life. My dad and most of all my uncles are salesman, so it was in my blood. I've sold, clothes, shoes, cars, donuts, newspaper, mattresses, hats, motorcycles, off road toys, websites, helmets, promotional products, custom home designs, alarms systems and much more. 

When working with my new media company, we will always focus on the sales and growth of you and your business. 

The one most important things I've learned in my years of sales is the lack of awareness the companies I've worked for provides for the individual salespeople. 

Look at how many marketing companies do work for businesses and they do nothing that involves the employees of the businesses. They don't do nothing to help the individual people who actually work for the company, the people on the front lines.

The main reason why is, they we're never in the trenches as a sales person. And if they were sales people, they weren't doing it long enough to realize how important it was for them to be in front of as many people as possible as well. To stay in front of customers at all times. 

Ventum Medias main focus is to market companies and individuals. Mainly the sales people. We will use the people in the business and tell the stories of the people in the business, to help build the business and spread awareness.

This will ultimately help build for the individual people who work for the specific businesses we work with. Which will definitely help bring them more awareness to them, which means more leads and ultimately more profits for everyone.

Marketing is great, but it's deeper than just marketing a product and that's it. I personally believe marketing is about spreading awareness of people and products through stories and whys. 

It also helps people working for a business feel apart proud of where they work. Which will increase employee loyalty, just imagine working for a company and they market you the salesperson and the product. They would make you feel like you're apart of the family and the growth of the business.

There was a time in history when people mattered just as much as the products that were sold. That's the part of history we want to stand for and represent moving into the future of business. 

Everyone is so focused on the marketing the product and their not thinking about the people who are selling the product. These people need exposure too ya know. 

This is a little intro into my new company. I'm also writing a book on this idea, I can't tell you the name yet, but your going to FUCKING LOVE IT. 

My goal right now is to build the foundation of my business. I'm going to take my time and build this machine slowly. Make many mistakes and fuck shit up but always move forward. 

In the current state of my company, I beginning to understanding who we are, what we are trying to do, what makes us different and how we can truly help make you rich. 

I'm also huge Gary Vaynerchuk fan. And if I'm going to build my own machine, I might as well build it like the person I believe is the best fucking marketer of all time. 

I'm so down for being like Gary, my partner is russian like him. So I have a little piece of him around me as I build my business. lol It's super random, it wasn't intentional but it happened to fall that way and I'm down for it. My partner actually lived a few cities away from him. Super random.

But, I'll end it right here for now. I'm still working my 9 to 5 and I have to get to work. 

If you're interested in having some conversations about my business and how we can help you with some ideas, contact us at ventummedia@gmail.com. 

Until then, Have a Great Day today.

My nigga Asap Rocky

Nothing like hearing a hood nigga talking positive.

This new world we're living and the influence my black community is pouring onto this world amazes me. We're changing societies views on who we are as a people, even though we still receive so much backlash.

But from where we came from 60 years ago, to now. I only see growth in a positive light.

We need more positive black people doing things of the now. Like using technology and talking. Everyone in this world needs to be more positive not just black people. But, I am a black man in born and raised in America and I identify with the struggles we go through on a daily basis and the inner battles we must fight with.

To keep us in the right light, staying focused on the positive things we can control. By, having the best time we can while we're here on the earth should be the focus and that's my focus.

Talking positively, being Positive, doing positive things is the key to our success.

It's a blessing to hearing Asap Rocky talk in this light. Thank you, Evan Carmichael, for putting this together.

Listen up and get inspired. Jiggy niggas on the rise to positive freedom.

SWAG WHOOP...

9/11 Never Forget

This event will never be forgotten by me or my country.

I still can't believe all the conspiracy that was involved around in this horrific incident.

I pray for all of the families and victims in this tragic event. #GodBlessAmerica

A Valuable Business Strategy

I follow many different types of people online that give me great daily information.

I recently started following this guy named Roy Furr. I originally began following Roy because of my interest in copy writing. 

He creates these youtube videos and posts weekly jewels. 

In the video below, he presents a great strategy on how to build your business to a sustainable, growing business. This strategy helps will help your business grow quickly and you will see results quicker than most traditional ways of building a business.

This was the first time I've heard this type of business strategy. I'm sharing this video because it made me think about the way I want to start building my own business. I believe this information would be very valuable to any person building anything where revenue is involved.  

The strategy, in a nutshell, focuses on maximizing the customer experience.

Check out the quick 5-minute video below. It may possibly help you change the way you're approaching your current business venture or help you rethink a new way of moving your business forward.

What are you doing?

Figure out what you want to do with your life and treat it as if you're already late.

Get on your shit and get things done. Value your self more and have a since of urgency.

Don't wait until it's to late to accomplish your dreams and goals.

Great pump up from Daniel DiPiazza this morning.

Do you want to remember more things you learn?

This morning, I did the normal morning routine. Hopped out of bed, used the rest room and start looking for interesting things to learn.

As I was looking for interesting things, I start thinking to myself. " I learn so much information and I forget so much of the information at the same time."

Then I did what everyone does, I googled it. And I found myself clicking an attractive headline, which read:

"How To Retain 90% of Everything You Learn". 

Great headline, right!

The writer starts the article having us imagine having a bucket of water. And every time the bucket was filled up, 90% of the water leaked out. Which you would ultimately fill up once or get a larger bucket.

The writer then goes into depth and explains the idea by saying that's how our minds work. When we receive new information from a book, a lecture, an audio book and so on. We're really just wasting our time because we're not properly learning.

The writer then brought up the idea of "The Learning Pyramid". 

On a quick side note, I'm only giving you my take away from the article, which I think you should definitely read for yourself. The link is below.

But, back my take away.

He basically says we as people struggle with remembering the things because we don't teach what we learn. That's the key.

We have to teach what we learn to help keep the information in our heads.

I can completely agree with this thought processes. For the past few weeks, I've been studying the copy writing industry and they have a similar idea.

They say the best way to learn copy writing is to rewrite great copy writing.

When you learn something new and teach someone, it begins making more sense in your own brain.

Like what I'm doing right now. I'm writing out what I learned to the best of my ability and it's making more sense as I'm writing this out.

I think the main reason is that I'm probably not 100% correct on what I'm saying. But it doesn't matter. The goal is to make mistakes and learning from those mistakes. Like, I'm probably not giving you the best take away but the more I'm talking about this, I'm becoming more confident in this idea.

By taking the steps and either talking to someone about what you've learned or if you have no one, simply writing it down will increase your memory of new information ten fold.

So the next time you learn something new, teach someone.

That's the key to retaining new information that goes into your brain.

Now, go check out this article and let me know what your take away is. Let me know what you've learned from the article and let's discuss it together.

Teach me something.

3 steps to help you do what you believe in.

Do you have your own thoughts on what you believe in and do what you love?

Do you love what your currently doing with your life right now? Like, really?

When you wake up in the morning are you excited for the new day. Are you proud of the actions you're taking on a daily basis. Are you trying to go somewhere or accomplish something?

These are some things to truly think about if it hasn't ran though your mind lately.

I believe life gets more interesting and fun when you have something to believe in and work towards.

When you look at people like Steve Jobs who spent his life creating things that would help make the world a better place through simple and clean computers and gadgets. Then you have people like Martin Luther King Jr. who had a dream of a better, less racist world. He believe if he stood for what he believed in he would make a difference and he sure did.

Find something to believe in my friend. I don't care what it is, find something. No matter what it is, find something that makes you move forward with your life.

They say the people who go after things in their lives have great lives.

Here are 3 steps that will help you believe.

1. Pay attention to your daily actions.

Watch what you're doing on a daily basis. Keep a mental note or even better. Pull out your cell phone or a note book and keep notes on the things your doing daily and reflect on them.

See if they're making you feel good before you go to bed and night. See if your feeling excited for the new day. If you're not, make some adjustments.

The key to this is to find something that makes you move. This will help you realize if your on the wrong path and will definitely help you start going in the direction of fulfillment.

2. Create goals.

Goals are a ever changing thing. So when you begin creating these goals of yours don't think to hard.

Create these goals based on everything you want and even the things you think you want. Goals help you stay on track and gives you direction to where you're trying to go.

There is no since of hoping on a ship with no directions and no compass to guide you. Goals are the compass for your life. Goals will help you stay on track. Even if your goals change because life happens, knowing where your going plays a huge part in doing what you believe in.

3. Find people who believe in what you believe in and talk to them.

This one is very helpful. Once you begin figuring out what you want to do, go meet people. There is a huge chance that whatever you believe in or want to do with your life some else believes in the same thing or currently shares the same love as you.

The internet has allowed us to do whatever we want to do. We can find anything we want and the people we want to be around. If you can find the strength within yourself to go for it, this could be a game changer.

I hope these 3 steps helps you out a little. If you can't find people willing to listen to you and hear out what you believe in contact me. Reach out to me and I'll hear you out.

Here is my email : travistriggs777@gmail.com . Now you really can't make up an excuse, you have a least one people here fro you. It's up to you to reach out.

If your fine but you know someone that needs people to talk to about belief and goals, give them my email and I'll hear them out and be here for them as well.

Never let anyone or anything make you think your thoughts and ideas aren't valuable. Believe in yourself by the actions you take and watch how much life will change.

Have a Great and Amazing day today.

P.s There are some jewels in this video below.

Cheers

Don't quit your day job yet...

Even though this video has, " I quit my job after watching this" isn't a great idea for most. I checked and there was no follow up to this video, saying I quit my job and now I'm successful. Think about what really happened.

Also, think about that person's situation. They could be living with their parents with no bills, which makes it really easy to quit a job.

I'm not undermining this video, it's great. It touches people who are striving for something and it touches the heart.

I mean when you think about your life's biggest regrets it's kinda scary. Thinking about your last words before you die is a frightful thought.

But at the end of the day, do you a dream or a goal you're striving towards?

Do you have something that makes you feel like quitting your current position.

Are you doing anything right now to show yourself you are serious about going after your dream?

Do you want to accomplish something that you really want?

Seriously think about what you're doing, after watching this video below. Don't let motivation lead you on your path to success, let desire. Let the thing you feel in your heart, your gut move you.

The words of any man are to help you stand up, but you have to do the work and get shit completed. Hard work doesn't always pay off, but hard work does allow you to feel better about life and the direction you're choosing to go after.

This video is really good, that's why I posted it. It is motivational and hopefully, this post helps you stand up to begin changing your life and allow you to never have to look back and regret.

Sorry for the vulgar language, just venting a little.

I've reached a point where money needs to start coming into my life. I've been working job after job here in San Diego and it's been super rough.

I'm damn near broke ass hell. I have my family to take care of and the shits just not going to plan. I feel like I'm really trying and it's not paying off. Sales have been so weak for me these past few months and I'm at the point where I don't even have enough money to pay my rent. Shit sucks.

I'm pissed but I'm not, mainly because I have family and friends whos here for me and I can easily get the cash if need be. It just sucks knowing I have to call and ask for it. This shit is fucking with my pride.

One thing I'm learning about having low funds right now is people who really matter in my life are here and around. They're being very supportive. Even just the simple conversion just to listen to me get out my frustration helps a lot. 

Going through hardship sucks so much. If you can't relate you're lucky. If you can relate, stay strong and ride that damn wave.

Don't let the bullshit of the world like money, fuck you over and make you believe life is something that it's not. 

Life should be fun and exciting. Here are 3 things that will help make you feel a little better about your situation.

1. People are in worse situations.

2. You have complete control over how you feel. Go look in a mirror and throw a big ass smile on your face. 

3. Nothing last forever, unless you want it to.

This was a little morning vent for me today. I'm just super stressed out and I had to get it out of me so I can move onto a great, successful and amazing Friday today.

I hope you all have a great weekend.

8.29.2017 update

I've been working and lowkey networking with a few people these past few days.

I've also been doing the normal. Reading about copy writing, watching videos about copy writing, practicing and so on.

These past few days have been very productive. You see, I've been connecting with my clients from my nine to five. I'm working up ways to help bring them more business and more value to our business relationship.

One of my clients recently opened a women's plus size clothing store. I'm extremely excited for her and she also lost her I think 24-year-old son in back in July of this year. So I know she's going through a lot of mental battles and it's pushing her.

She is one of those people I would love to see become successful.

So, my plan is to help her with her email marketing strategies, newsletters, product copy, short commercials and more.  

I keep telling her to document her journey from starting her clothing brand to opening first store. I'm also going to talk to her about getting more orders online.

The other business is a small car dealership. The guy is cool, he's still going through the process and he determined. He wants me to sell for him, but I told him I'd help with his marketing and sell with my typed word and occasionally at the physical car lot.

I'm going to help him create little commercials for each the cars he has available. I'm also going to take some clean pictures and do some online advertising for him. Like, craigslist, auto trader and so on.

I'm also going to try and get him on this idea I'm thinking about right now. His dealership is pretty close to the college campus. He should do a program for college students. Do a special promotion for each type of student and target those specific niches to market to. Like, market stories about each vehicle on the lot. Have each car identified with that specific type of student also become the huge fan of the college and the city.

I literally thought of this one the spot, like right now. It sounds good, to a certain degree. Talk about the features and benefits, and show through stories the reason why each specific vehicle can help make your life easier and better.

 hmmmm!↽

That was a quick idea for someone looking for ideas that working with car dealerships.

Back to what I'm doing right now......

Today, I finished up a little video for my lady with the clothing store. I didn't get much footage but it's something she'll be happy with.

I'm also doing some work for my boy and his music label. He has a few artist making good decisions and putting on shows. They're beginning to make a little noise.

He wants me to help him with boosting post. I've been quite successful in my past with helping boost post and discovering good target markets.

The average small business knows they need help with their marketing unless they are extremely successful, but those guys are marketing like crazy. I feel the new world we live in is not in their mental economy right now. I think they believe they can survive for a long time without it and I mean you can, but you can also have a better brand which will increase their income.

The small business thinks the world isn't as social as it is. They think the internet isn't that important. But the internet and being social in front of different people all the time gives you a chance at bat. I'm trying to help show them the importance so they can succeed.

I'm beginning to understand who I am and purpose.

It doesn't matter how rich or poor you are. If the right people get mixed into your life and change your perspective and make you a better person.

Great things can happen but you must be prepared with the proper practice in your past.

Now I'm just mummbling. Off to work I go. Have a great Tuesday.

Emptying my brain today

These past few days I've been diving so deep into copy writing.

If you're not sure what copy writing is. It's basically selling with words. Any advertisement or email or banner and so on with call to action to do something you are observing copy writing.

This is something I've been diving deep into to make into a career soon.

Once you decide to make something out of your life and you begin taking the steps to get there, you start noticing everything about that thing.

It's like if you wanted to buy a car. Let's say you wanted to buy a new BMW 3 series, 4 door, suped up twin turbo motor. Nice clean shiny wheels and so on.

After your decision has been made and you begin looking for the car. Going to car dealerships, start looking them up all over online.

Something happen.

You start noticing the car everywhere. You drive down the street you see a few, you go to the mall their everywhere. You go to the grocery stores, there all over the parking lot and so on.

Once you make that decision to get something or get into something, it begins popping out to you all the time.

That's what going on with me right now. I want to get into copy writing and I'm meeting all these new people who are into copy writing. My youtube channels are full of random copy writing videos.

I'm noticing every ad that trying to sale something and convert. It's wild.

Hopefully with the continuous mix of writing, reading, listening. Non-stop doing, this will lead me to get a few clients and eventually lead me to writing more and becoming a copy writer.

I really anxious right now. I'm following my goals and writing everyday.

The goal is to make this a career and eventually I'll start writing and publishing my own books.

I literally wrote this morning, just to get something out of my head. This is another one of those post where I literally sat down and just began writing.

I hope some of this made since. If not, sorry your just riding the wave of my thoughts.

Have a great day today.

So much Information Online..

Is it just me or is there way to much information online for everything.

I'm starting to believe that the world is becoming a place where if you really want something you can make it happen. It's becoming " The Land of No Excuses." 

Like, really.

Think about anything in the world. You can google it and find answers. Have you ever really thought about that?

Stop right now and think about.

Shits crazy right! Like anything, even answers to dumb ass questions. 

You can literally get information on anything you want in life. There was a time in life where if you didn't know someone or if you couldn't get access to the library you were screwed. 

The world we live in now, everyone can get access and has a chance. The power computers now sit in one of your pockets.  

You really do not have any room for excuses anymore. No one, especially if you live in America. You can't say you don't know something, you'd be lying. 

The only thing that can be said is, "I don't fully understand."

 Since there is so much information online. There are so many different perspectives you have to listen to and each person implants different information in your brain. 

The brain is starting to be looked at like a hard drive to a computer. It's like how much information can you attain and do something with.

The flood of information is great to a certain degree but it can a little excessive. It's like having 10 different teachers or more, on one subject and they all have different approaches that one subject.

You have to figure out who to listen to , are they creditable. Have they experienced success themselves or have they just learned about a subject and just trying a living off of you.

This is one of biggest issues I see with the flood of information available. But, it's better to have too much information, than not enough.

My advice is to find 1 or 2 people who sound a like. Make sure you feel comfortable with them and move forward.

Don't allow the flood of information to slow your learning process down because it will. Keep it to a limit and put time into learning whatever your trying to learn and you will succeed. Period. 

No more excuses why your not living up to your full potential. Just because your not swimming in money, shopping like crazy and taking a bunch of exotic trips around the world. 

Doesn't mean your not taking the right steps to get there. 

Stay focused, work hard and be patient.

Go after it...

Let's say your dream is to become a Body Builder. But your really skinny and never really worked out before. Don't have much money to pay for a gym membership and don't have transportation to get to that gym. Don't have much money to buy a bunch of protein shakes and food either,

All the obstacles are against you. Now, in many situations this would lead to a person to begin coming up with excuses, not become a body builder and can easily convince themselves why not.

This is how most dreams usually play out. You don't know anyone in the industry you want to get into. You don't have the money to pay for the things you really want to do. You feel like it's one thing after another. But, you still feel like it's the one thing that would change everything in your life.

This is where creativity comes into place.

If you have to go through a lot of obstacles to make a dream or ultimate goal come to life, then you must push your mind and body. Also known as where the work really begins.

This is when you must grab a book, start talking to people you've never talked to before. Start acting like the person you want to become, by making up things to do to help build up your skills.

Put yourself in situations where you feel like you are progressing towards your dream.

Back to the wanting to become a Body builder and you have not access to a gym, not money, no transportation.

Start working out at home. Go online, talk to people, find workout routines that help, go to the library and find physical books. Start looking for a job that can help fund your dreams.

Never let anything stop you from moving forward with your life.

The biggest issue is not having any idea what you want to do. Once you figure it out what you want. Figure out the actions necessary to move you in the direction you need to be moving towards.

Going after your dreams is a process that's attainable by anyone.

The title of this books says everything. There are always going to be things that get in your way towards an ultimate goal. Your thoughts are the gatekeepers that will allow anything to come into fruition. When you feel like your going after something and your not getting the results you want yet.

Allow your mind and to transform itself with the right thoughts.



Go check Break Throught Your BS and break your mind out of the limited belief and make your dreams a reality.

Your dreams can come true, it just takes hard work and dedication.

Finding my voice

I'm trying to find my writers voice right now. I recently have the opportunity to write for the this sports blog and I'm going to try and do my best. But after looking up the information I have to write about. My mind just goes fucking blank. 

My minds going blank cuz I don't like sports. I don't even know sports talk that well. Unless it's like tournament games, leading up to the championship game and it's all over social media. While everyone is talking about it. That way I really don't have any other choice but to know whats going on. 

But besides that, I'm fucking lost.lol

I know I'm going to figure it out. I've been researching like crazy, getting to know the fans and seeing whats most valuable to them.

It's just a little weird to me, I'm so use to writing about things I only know and care about. In this particular situation, they're leaving the information open with no real target, just very vague. I'm not saying thats bad, is just my first time and I think I'm just acting like a little bitch.lol

Writing out my thoughts and creating things for projects I'm into comes very natural for me. But coming up with ideas for something I'm not really into is kinda tuff. I see what David Ogilvy was saying in his book about working on things your into verse things you're not. 

He said how when you're not really into the project at hand, you tend to not have your best work. He also said to choose projects that are best for you, so you can always deliver your best work. Or at least that's how I took what he was saying. 

I'm really not into sports, but I know I gotta figure this shit out. 

On another note. 

It's been cool watching myself study all this copywriting stuff. I'm even writing a more than ever have. 

I even started reaching out to different copy writers online and I've been getting a little feed back here and there. This one dude wrote me back and advised me to take this copy writing training course out here in San Diego. It's called Portfolio Studio. 

I already reached out to them, but to hear a another person randomly bring it up makes me feel even more confident in the copy writers course. You know I'll keep you updated on how that works out. 

So far, I notice I type way more and I've been staying in my books, apps and videos. Just learning and practicing. 

I'm feeling great for the future and the rest of this year. I hope you are getting your shit together with me. It's hard out here if you don't have many people to talk to and motivate you to do shit. 

I'm down to be your friend and growth partner. Send me a message and lets chat. 

We need each other to encourage and help one another, even help open doors for each other if possible. 

This world has so many people because we are suppose to connect with each other and find our own crowd. If your looking for a crowd or people to hang out with to listen and encourage you like I said. I'm here.  

Make today great and tomorrow even greater. You're alive for a reason, keep searching for your purpose. When you find it and live it up.

Spotify Has Taken a Stand and Removed “Hate Bands” From Its Streaming Library

After being alerted to a number of “hate bands” appearing on Spotify, the steaming service has followed Apple‘s lead and removed the content. Announcing the decision, Spotify released a statement saying that, “illegal content or material that favors hatred or incites violence against race, religion, sexuality or the like is not tolerated by us.” The company also explained how the music had made it on to the service, putting it down to the “hundreds of thousands of record companies and aggregators all over the world” who contribute the music to the site and are responsible for it.
As well as explaining the decision to remove the hate content from its site, Spotify also used the statement to discuss the launch of Patriotic Passions, a playlist that “is a soundtrack to an America worth fighting for” and features music from Jimi Hendrix to Khalid.
It’s been a busy summer for Spotify, with the streaming service being forced to deny inventing artists for some of its playlists and being hit with two more copyright infringement lawsuits.
This is a reblog from Hypebeat.com. I'm a Spotify junkie and I had to post this. Very interesting.

Something New

So, I've deciding to quit reading so much material and start doing more.

Today, I reached that boiling point of fuck it and start put myself out to the world.

Have you ever reached a point in your life where you need to quit learning so much and just start doing?

Well, that's what I'm on now.  So far, I've sent 6 emails to different companies looking for blog help.

I figure I can start will doing work for free to start gaining some experience and eventually turn that free work, into paying work.

I don't know what to hell I'm going to do, I don't know what the projects are going to look like. But, I've been reading a bunch, watching a bunch of youtube videos, downloaded a bunch of apps, started reading a new book.

I'm currently reading "Ogilvy on Advertising". I read he's like one of the Gods of copy writing and advertising, so it only makes sense for me to start with his book.




It;s definitely worth the read. Right now int he book, he's talking about the importance of research and knowing the audience you are writing for. He also talks about the importance of continously learning your craft and being the best in your field.

But let's see how things go. I'm starting to put myself out to the world.

I'm ready to do my best and work my hardest to deliver great copy and possibly make someone some sales. I'm ready!

The start of my writing career is officially beginning.

I hope all of you are going after your dreams and goals. Hopefully one day, we can share the experience of wanting to make something happen and really live up to it and beyond.

Start your journey today if you've been lagging it. If you've been needing a little push. I just pushed ya, let's go.

The moment you start to act on who you really are things start to to change very quickly. - Gary V 

Attitude and Thoughts

There is a guy walking down the street.

He's panting. He's jogging.

It's early, cold and cloudy.

One of those beautiful cloudy days. When the sky peeks from behind the clouds with that, gorgeous tint.

His dog kept the perfect speed for them to jog in sync.

Then all of a sudden, his foot feels this slight thump, as he gets his foot caught trying to step on the curved.

It happened all in slow motion.

He screamed out "OOOHHHHH SSHITT".

As his left right cheek slowly hit the pavement. His dog took off as soon as he smacked the ground.

And he just laid there and thought to him self for a second.

Laughed a little, hopped up and ran over to his dog.

He gets him self together. He starts dusting off his shirt, his shorts then continue's jogging back home.

When arrives home, he opens the gate and lets his dog loose from the leash. Walks into his house release his toes from his tennis shoes, while slowly catching his breath begins to walk down the hall way.

He then takes off his clothes, sits on the side of this bed. And begins to laugh at himself as he gets ready to go back to sleep.

The End.

Don't take life too serious.

I read some statistics on Jennifer Read Hawthorne website about negative thoughts.

Did you know 80% of your thoughts are negative?

Does that shock you?

The one takeaway from the story is his attitude. He did not beat himself up for tripping but he merely laughed at himself.

Let's not take life too seriously and enjoy the ups and downs we go through.



Go check out Joel Osteen's book " Think Better, Live Better" if you're struggling with more positive thoughts.

Sometimes you just gotta laugh at yourself and enjoy them falls. Let me know what you think of the book.

A letter I wrote my brother in Prison..

Brother,

 I write to you from my dining room table. It’s about 11:50 pm on the dime, cold, a small cool breeze to keep my toes curled.

I miss you, man.

I miss when we use to play at the basketball court at the park. You were always the best on the court. I was so proud to say yep, that’s my older brother.

It’s crazy how much life has changed bro. It seemed like we were kids only a few years ago. As time flies and we sit on our own spaces. I know you, like me. Sit and think of the world and the possibilities of life.

Don’t ever let the beauty of life go bro. I dare you not to. Never let your current situation make you believe this is what forever looks like because it doesn’t. For every second that passes, is only opportunities for us to shine our best shine.

You have every second to be your best. Every second to have the most respect for another living person. A second to have faith.

I know you’re in one of the wildest places ever but your still somewhere. I can write this letter and by the grace of God, it gets to you and you read this and just smile. Smile because you are reading this, this very second. I’m smiling with you right now and it only took seconds to think about it and make it happen.

Use your seconds wisely and think of your next move. Think of the next decisions for the next decisions like chess.

You, like me, are only human beings trying to make the best out of the time we have. We are supposed to go through tough things to make us tougher. Believe it or not, you’re in your situation right now because that's how it's supposed to be right now.

I wouldn’t be as strong as I am if I didn’t have you in your situation. You make me stronger. Like how people make people stronger. At least that’s what believe. I believe all things will change in this world. Even if it’s making someone else life better.

People affect people in so many ways.

Look how people are changed by situations. Look at all the change created by Martin Luther King Jr. He changed things in a huge way. He wasn’t afraid to use his voice and knew he had power.

Bro, to be real. I’ve been reading some shit lately about becoming an Arthur. I think that’s something you should really consider doing big bro. Just like Martin Luther King Jr. use your voice bro. Allow your words to tell stories. Think of things and write it down and keep writing bro.

I’m starting to have this belief in writing bro. It sets you free because you can write about anything.

Have you ever dreamed of owning a business or hanging out with some cool ass people on an island or traveling the world? Bring it to life with your words.

Write bro.

Writing may be the key to success bro. I’m not playing at all. With the world, we live in right now. It’s not hard to get a good story out to the world. You just have to consistently work at it. Whatever you stay consistent at and never stop marketing and putting stuff out to the world. It will work.

For some strange reason, the world will accept it now. Especially if it’s honest and from a true heart.

When I say honest, I mean honest out of your own mind. We all as human beings think different about things and we can do anything we want to do. There are no limitations.

With this new millennium, we are currently in and this new technological world we're moving towards. It doesn’t matter your situation anymore. It doesn’t matter where you live. Nothing matters anymore. The world wants people who do things now.

Everyone wants to hear the new story. Everyone wants to believe things are possible through the eyes of another human being. That's where the belief comes from.

Sorry for just going on and on. I just want you to know that anything is still possible bro. Don’t let prison stop your mind and body from success bro. You could create a story that is a hit and goes viral and helps you get out that bitch. Or you could create something that not only helps you but helps out the family as well bro.

Don’t let that place get you not to believe bro. That's why that place was created. But If you have a pen and paper or a computer to type on, get it going, bro. The best stories we tell now and the shit that goes viral now is shit just from real ass people.

Now, I cannot guarantee that anything will actually happen. But what I can guarantee is a shot. And the more shots you take by creating and putting out to the world your thoughts and ideas, the more chances you have to swing at success.

Remember It’s all about consistency. To be real that's the hardest part. The one thing that holds most people back is that consistency. Things always sound good and easy when there is no plan and it could happen over night mentality.

Nothing great or nothing that is worth real value happened over night. And if you know of something that did. That shits very rare and that's not the way life works.

The great things take time. The great thing took none stop moving towards a specific goal. Michael Jordan would not have been Michael Jordan if he didn't have any goals.The goal is what matters.

See, the goal is what's going to allow you to track your progress for you to see it yourself grow. Unlike rich people who have secretaries. The regular people must do things themselves and watch their own schedules. Everything starts with a single idea, which turned into actions, which lead to consistency, to give results of success.

Bro, you have everything in you to be the best you can be in this world. Never believe what anyone says. Never believe your current situation is your only situation because it’s not.

You still have years and a whole lot of chances at bat.

To me, life is about living your life to the fullest and leaving valuables pieces behind. You know heroes of the times because of the pieces they left for you and the world.

They left their work for us. They left their thoughts and ideas behind. Those thoughts and ideas are so strong. They are strong because they made it possible for you to give something they created value. There are so many people in this world you could call the greatest people of all time.

But I got a secret for you.

Are you ready?

You are Greatest, you are the secret. It's your mind and actions you decided to take. You are important enough to create something everyone could have and share forever. The only thing that stopping it from happing is you.

You have to grab your balls and figure out what the fuck you like, what the fuck you would like and start writing.

Create your visions. Create stories that make people uncomfortable. Tell stories that make you cry when you're writing it. Create stories that would encourage a youngster who may need to hear your words and finally straightens up. Write a story to kids.

You are the Great person that could do great things if you wanted to. You just have to truly want to.

One thing I’ve learned from reading many books is that you must do things successful people have done before you. When you look at history and the outcomes of society. Everyone wants to be successful. Everyone wants to believe they can do it.

The shits that's crazy is that it is possible. Based on your situation, you may not be able to think about what you can do to move forward. But I'll tell you right now, writing is an option for you.

I wrote this to tell you to write. Write a novel or something you think would be valuable to one person in this world. It doesn't even have to be long.

All it needs is a beginning and ending.

I’m taking this online class from the University of Irvine on this app called Cousera. It’s an online class on doing presentations and she was talking about the importance of story telling.

All a story needs is a grabbing intro, some grabbing meat to keep the reader's interested and close it out.

Yes, it’s a lot more difficult than it sounds, but it is that easy. At least from what I’ve read. I’m currently working on a book right now.

I’ll go into it on another letter though. This one is getting super long.

Let me know your thoughts on this bro. Let me know if you're want to get into this writing world with me. Whatever you produce, I’ll do my part and market it.

You already have a story to tell right now. I’ll tell you this bro. This shit feels good to see things unfold. Once you start getting into a good thought, the shit just starts pouring out.

But again let me know if your down and we can move on to phase two.

I love you, just sitting here at my table thinking about you and what we could possibly do to still create an amazing future for us, bro.

I Love You.

Hit me back…

Your loved one, your little brother.

The New iPhone 8

The new Iphone 8 mock up review. I don't think I'm going to be switching up my phone this year. I hope Apple does something amazing with the features of this phone. I'm not really feeling it right now.

Damn I miss Steve Jobs.

I'm not feeling the camera on the back tucked in the corner. The full screen is a great feature but I think I have to see this phone in person to really say how I feel. But all in all, I don't know. I'm not that impressed so far.

Check out the video review below...


What are your thoughts?


I signed up for online school.

I'm starting to take some new classes online to sharpen my writing skills.

Have you ever heard of Coursera?

It's an website and app dedicated to educating individuals from many accredited colleges. It's legit as fuck. They offer many free courses you can take on a wide variety of subjects. You can pay for particular courses and get a certification upon completion or you can do like me and take the free classes.

Go check it out. www.coursera.org

I'm currently enrolled in two courses right now. First the Presentations: Speaking so that People Listen course. I'm taking this course to have a better understanding of presenting, mainly because I'm a salesman and I do presentation pretty much everyday. This is a great course for anyone who goes to college or even has a job. I believe presenting and selling your ideas is a valuable skills to have.

The teachers talk slow and they make it really easy and fun to learn. They throw in many random test and quizzes to make sure you're paying attention and actually learning the information.

I'm also taking English for Journalism. If you've been paying attention to my blog for the past few weeks. I'm planning to switch my careers and slowly make my way to become a copy writer. From all of the job postings I've seen, they always request or like to see people with a journalism degree.

I've personally never obtained the degree but in the world we live in now, I don't think it really matters that much, at least in this field at least in the direction I'm going. I believe companies I'm looking to work for, care more about the results you can bring to the table .

I figured since I don't have a degree. I might as well learn as much as I can. A journalism degree is preferred preference on pretty much all of the job postings I've seen.

Now that I've been enrolled in this course, I understand why jobs are looking for people with this skill. I'm learning a lot about the importance of journalism and basically how it changes things in the world. I'm also learning a lot about communication.

Journalism has been around basically forever. It can be the voice of the people or the voice of the government. I'm not going to go into to much detail, but the shits dope.

This course has been great so far. Once I've completed the courses, I'll gave a full review of my thoughts and experiences.  

Until then, go check out www.coursera.org , there may be a course that can help you grow and a more valuable person in your field.

This is cool. They show the process of creating a stop motion video with Tyler the Creator. Two words, fuckin hilarious.

Letting my mind go to write.

These past few weeks have been the most interesting weeks of my life.

I believe I've finally may have figured out what I would like to do for the rest of my life, my job sales job has been picking up and I'm learning to be a better father.

I've been researching places to learn and grow from to be a better writer/copy writer. I found this school in San Diego that specializes in copy writing and portfolio building. I'm going to be speaking with co-owner later today and we'll see how the conversation goes.

From what it looks like, I will be able work with current copy writers in the industry who can help guide me and help get me where I'm trying to go.

I also began taking this journalism class online. I've been learning some great shit from journalism.

Did you know the first printing press what created in 1454 in Germany? Did you also know that the first news paper in America was called the Public Occurrence and it was originated out of Boston in the 1690's.

That shits dope.

This learning business has been effecting the way I look at the world as a man and the way I've starting to carry myself.

I work for the oldest security system company in the world, ADT. I work with small business owners in protecting their investments and securing their product.

The one things I've been doing differently is getting in front of different people more. I'm starting to have this real, I don't give a fuck attitude about putting myself out to the world and it's showing in my sales.

I'm also beginning to question my fatherhood. I would still kinda consider myself a new dad even though my son is only 2 years old.

I've recently been thinking about how much parents effect their kids. I was one of those kids who's parents cared more about themselves then their kids. When I say them selves I mean they were so busy keeping up with other people that they didn't really care about what we were doing.

The thing they held over our heads was, " Hey, you have clothes on your back and a roof over your head."

Now that I am a father and I can see how my actions effect my kids, it really makes me question parenting as a whole.

Parents have a large part of their kids lives in their hands. If parents don't start to truly care for their kids and take care of themselves. By following their own dreams and living up to their own true potential, the kids will get trapped following the the wrong people. Because they will definitely not follow their parents foot steps.

I personally feel like parenting is about being the best you can be and be their for your kids. So they can look at you and be proud of your effort. When kids begin growing up and finding who they are, they will begin looking at whats going on in the world. And when they realize how lazy and unmotivated their parents are, they will look for other people to look or connect with. And that's when the wheel starts to spin another direction.

I'm just letting my mind go right now. But I gotta get to work.

I hope you enjoyed my little mental thoughts. Now like always, I gotta get to work.

Have a Great Thursday.

P.s I didn't proof read this, so if something sounds crazy. My bad.lol

Cheers

Learning to write copy is not easy...

Have you ever wanted to become a writer?

I have this passion for writing, or at least I think I do.

It's fucking hard. There is so much study needed to be a successful writer. But I have come to the conclusion that writing is what I want to do.

Have you ever tried to write something with intention. Like tried to get your point across to someone but it didn't seem like your point was getting across. Kinda like you and the reader were on two different sides of the road, going different directions.

That's how I'm feeling right now.

I'm on the one side of the road, trying to merge into the turning lane to make a u turn, but there is so much fucking traffic.

I feel like I'm battling major traffic getting into this writing world.

I know it's possible but it's definitely going to take a lot of time and a lot of work.

I'm learning the strategies necessary to grow as a writer but there is so much damn information. I read and read and practice and practice. There is so much more to learn, do and understand.

I've even reached out to a few copy writers for advice and they all give me the cold shoulder. I think their afraid or something. Their starting to make me believe this is definitely something I need to get into and expose.

They don't write me back once I ask for help and if they do they are trying to sell me something. I get get it to a certain degree. But by them not writing me back, is teaching me a life lesson. And that's to be patient.



It's teaching me that I haven't found the correct way to approach them and ask for help. That's definitely something I'm personally working on conquering and that's doing what I hate, asking for help. I really hate asking for help from strangers, I can deal with the people I know.

I figure I'll keep researching them and reaching out to them on Instagram until somebody actually gives me the time of day and gives me some good pointers.

I'm considering going to back to school for Journalism/Advertising to understand the craft of a writer better. That's one of the most companies seem to have in common on everyday job description requirement. Is a degree on one of those fields.

That's just in the air. I know we live in a world that only cares about the results brought to the table. So the whole school stuff is just an idea. I would rather flatter a company with some great copy that achieves results and financial gain. I have this vision of a company reaching back out to me because of something I created for them.

This is my little morning writing and rant.

If you got this far, Thank you for reading. You're reading about a guy who wants to get into copywriting.

I'm at ground zero, very determined, open for any suggestions. I'm currently taking a few online courses for writing. If you have any questions about copy writing please ask, if don't know the answer I can get it for you.

Until then, I will keep updating my growth to become an author/ copy writer on this blog. My story will unfold and I will tell this tale of my life. I'm putting these words out to the world backed with dedicated hard work.

Follow your dreams, work hard and stay focused my people.

Fight for your freedom, it must be taken.

God Bless

Travis

I'm slowly learning the art of copy writing.

One of the most important keys to copy writing is writing. Getting behind the computer screen or pen and paper and spending time writing down thoughts, feelings and ideas.

My challenge is pouring all my feelings out. I meet a guy at a toastmasters class and he gave me some advice.

He told me to be completely honest when I write and make myself vulnerable.

I've been trying and practicing being vulnerable as much as possible. I've noticing myself thinking a lot more when I write to help open me up. The shits, not easy.

When your learning something new and you really have no real clue what your doing. It's like a good challenging feeling.

I'm running a little behind schedule today. I just wanted to get some words up on the blog before I went into work.

I need to keep doing these quick writes to help stay on to of my writing. I have to learn the art of copy to eventually become an author. That's the ultimate goal.

Live the writers life. That's what I'm learning and will become. I'm slowly taking the steps by learning and writing everyday.

Some of my post may not make since all the time, just know I'm practicing and I will eventually be get the author I'm dreaming to become.

Time for work.

Have a great day today.

A Passion for Something...

Have you ever had a passion for doing something?

Like Anything?

And id you do anything that something?

This is the problem everyone who is not living up to their true potential are going through. They sit and think and think. Do more thinking and a lot of talking with more thinking. 

The way to follow your passion is to Get Shit Completed.

You have to really be passionate about something and start working at it.

Fingers to keyboard, pen to paper.

The people who are following their passion and accomplishing goals are putting in the work everyday 

No Excuses. 

People hate trends and hate whats going on this current state of the world.

We’re going through a massive change in society. We are going into the age of technology and this shits happening. Like it or not. 

It’s a mix of great and bad all at the same time.

I believe the real passionate and real hard workers are going to be the separators of the world moving forward. 

I believe finding the passion in yourself is very important. No matter what it is, you have a chance. Everybody has a real chance at life right now, especially if you live in America. 

No Joke. 

We’re in the beginning stages of a whole new world. 

Either get on board and follow your passion. Or get the fuck out the way and hop your your cell phone. 

If you’re reading this right now. You must be a person who is on board or trying to get on board. 

I pray for your hard work and dedication to your PASSION. You can do it.

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.
