Me: At the top of Mount Le Cont, TN

For most of us, the past 6 months have proved to be an extraordinary time. These times have pushed and pulled us. They have confined us and yet stretched us. But through it all, there has been one thing that remains constant, and that is time. Time has not sped up, nor has it slowed down. I’m jealous of time because even though our world has proven as unstable as a seismic rift, time continues forward.

I’ve put this blog post off and off and off. My reasoning has mostly been that I haven’t found the appropriate headspace to coherently…

It’s believed by my generation that if we aren’t successful in our twenties, we are behind and even failing.

I graduated from university three years ago come May. Surrounding the time of graduation I’d settled myself deeply in the belief that my startup, Swayy, was going to be THE passage to make a name for myself. But, I was finding out that while Swayy was a great opportunity, it was not filling the void that I have now slowly come to understand: the need for personal, 1 on 1 connection.

During the last few months of my university experience, I…

Exhibit A

As each month draws closer and a new one begins, I ask myself, “What will I write about this month?” This time around I’ve decided to let go of the struggle and write a blog about things that I am truly grateful and blessed to have.

Experience

Many of us have been there before, fresh out of college job searching or perhaps you are moving into a new field. Resume in hand and references ready, we scroll down the page of requirements that reads, “2–4 years’ experience required…” This requirement has always frustrated me because I feel that no company can…

According to WebMD, Delusional disorder is a type of mental illness where people can’t differentiate what’s real from what is imagined. Essentially, they have unshakable beliefs in something that isn’t true or based on reality. I think I have it.

This past week I called an influential mentor of mine. He is the leader of what I would consider a very powerful organization that enacts positive change in over 60 countries around the world. This man has been leading this organization for several years and has well over 26 years of experience in his field. …

Sad Diego Int.

I feel like a broken record saying it, but these past several months have been difficult ones. We’ve had to let go of pretty much all our contractors. Our inventory is dwindling, almost completely sold out. From one perspective this is really good, and from another, it spells the potential death of our company. But, amidst it all, there is still opportunity.

Opportunities come and go, but not always in the way or time that I’d like. Allow me to explain.

Just a few short weeks ago I was boarding a plane for San Diego. I had recently been asked…

I follow someone in the business world by the name of Gary Vaynerchuk. Gary is a Rockstar in the world of business and entrepreneurship, and while I would consider some of these viewpoints a bit off, there are quite a few that I have personally experienced ring true. The main one: patience, patience, patience…

I remember my first field day when I was about 6 years old. It was time for the 100-yard dash and as I lined up again the other first graders, I could feel the pent-up energy being channeled into my legs like rocket fuel-ready to be…

Am I Delusional?

According to Google, an entrepreneur is a person who organizes and operates a business, taking on greater than normal financial risks in order to do so. It is the activity of setting up a business, taking on financial risks in the hope of profit. I would say that it’s much more than that. Statistically speaking, entrepreneurship is also about taking a risk with your relationships and possibly even your marriage.

When I was 21, I had no intention of becoming a married man by the age of 24, but low and behold I am married and I believe it is…


I felt inspired to write down a few of my thoughts this evening and share them with all of you.

Truth be told, I am going through a heavy time and while I sometimes feel lost inside, I’m so blessed to have people around me who can center my thoughts once more and bring order to my ever racing mind. I think of many people, but specifically, my God and my wife Ashely have been that anchor.

Back when I was a missionary in the Philippines I felt more in touch with God, my emotions, and simply life. …

April 29 — Flight to Guangzhou, China >>

Today marks my third trip to China. My first was 2 years ago when I took a three and a half week tour to learn about Chinese history and business. It was the final 3 credits of my college career and was my first experience with the culture that would soon become a large piece of my life. I had my eyes set on the trip for a year. Because I was working on creating my own company in the textile world, I decided that this school trip would be a great…
