A while back I read a great article about whether you are a “professional” or an ametuer. It went on to say that being a pro means you should be a producer, constantly making content and putting it out. The ametuer just consuming a lot of content and not producing much.

I took this to heart and began producing a lot of content, it was good content in the beginning, but after about a month and a half, I began to get really mentally bogged down and struggle to make ohay content. …


First off, I apologize for the near two weeks of inactivity, I have been crazy busy using the product I am about to talk about, YouTube.

Why do I think YouTube is a great asset? Well to fall in to my great assets criteria the said platform must be two things, underutilized, and allow you to effectively reach out to an audience (especially an unsaturated one). This is where, for the most part, I think YouTube is a great asset. I mean companies already advertise on the platform, but those are like T.V. …


For those who may have not been around when I first launched the business, I originally wanted to start on Kickstarter(KS), but due to my age I couldn’t. Looking back at my inexperience I can also tell you it is for the better I couldn’t as well.

Much has changed since then and I have gotten far more clever in my making of the “simple” paracord bracelet, but my knowledge has not just improved there, I have also learned more about the audience I appeal to, how to reach them, and maybe most importantly, how to make a Kickstarter that…


Why I love collaboration one day, and want to throw it in the garbage can the next!

If you couldn’t tell by the introduction, collaboration as it relates to my business, and YouTube channel, has been a rollercoaster, loaded with highs and lows… but why?

Well to start off my business and collaboration efforts was rocky, I found many would-be cool and adventurous advocates, but almost all ended up screwing me over. …


Why should you choose to be Sanctified? Well when I started my business I wanted to do two things. One I wanted to put many of my core values into the business as I could. Secondly, I wanted to find an industry to completely revolutionize, do everything differently, better, and energize this industry!

I want to address this second piece first, because many people don’t fully understand why SWC is any better than the guy down the street that makes bracelets, and probably for less. The difference is I treat SWC like a real business not a side gig, which…


For quite some time now I have been hearing many people, like the much beloved Gary Vanynerchuk, talking about how he has only read seven books in his entire life and, no offense to him because I still agree with the strategy, he loves to fail. Though I honestly think he, and many others wouldn’t have to fail as much if they simply read more.


I have been putting off doing this post for a few weeks now, but I think it really deserves some attention. To start off, this is honestly one of the hardest things you will have to do in your life. Relaxing in the Lord is very hard because it is not the first instinct in a human, the first being to trust in oneself or another human. …


While I hope I had made this atleast partly clear, it’s apparent some of you have this wacky idea in your minds. This idea you can use the SWC bracelets for this thing called survival. Well let me be frank, you can’t, just no, GO AWAY…

Hopefully no one stopped after reading the introduction. To get to the real point, yes you definitely can (likely) take are bracelets apart in a pinch and use the cord, it is real 550lb test rope and is like the duct tape of cordage. The only reason I say likely is, I finish the…


With summer being in full swing (and actually about to come to a close) I have been extremely busy, though through my journey, and many YouTube posts! I made a really tasty, pretty organic, trail mix that will give you a good boost of energy.

Here’s a quick picture of what it looks like!

The Recipe:

The Base: This will make up about 50% of the mix. The first part is about 25% of (Planters) mixed nuts. The second part of the base is 25% (organic) granola.

The Additions: After the base is formed, I then added a few large graham crackers (broken up into small pieces), then I…


So I have already written about why I chose paracord for my bracelets, but I never really elaborated on why I chose making paracord bracelets.

So the first and probably most important part was cost of launch, unlike my parka business, I actually had enough money to buy a reasonable amount of supplies, licenses, and all the other startup costs. This was very important because due to my age I could not take out loans, or do crowd-funding.
