Am I even qualified to write about this stuff?
Probably not. I’ve meditated for 19 years every day, multiple times per day. But I’ve never studied under a master. I’m still often a mess, as you’ll learn. I have studied many religions. They’re all beautiful in their own way. I’m always learning more about centering, relaxing. I hope I can share some of what I’ve learned.
No one is forcing you to read this:)
What about business? Are you qualified to write about how to make things happen? I don’t know. Some moments I feel like kind of the world, other times not so much. I’m pretty good at the early stage phase, forming a team, putting and executing the plan for the first 1-2 years. That’s my wheelhouse.
For scaling up after that, we need help. Big time.
I’ve tried to start many many things as you’ll learn. Most don’t get out of ideation. Some I’ve tried have been disasters. Flatt Cola, www.flattcola.com, was fun but should’ve never been started. I’ll tell you about other disasters too, fashdax, 4 Guys (not a disaster because of the market and my partners).
I’ve never gotten close to a major success. Now that I’m 41 and have really focused on the early stage aspect, I’m starting to see how things are put together. I still have much to learn.
And I’m hungry. Hungry to have an idea really work out. I know the steps and players to help make things happen. I’m hungry for results. Peaceful results. Why Peaceful? I’ve found that if you push so hard, the world pushes back. That’s bad for the venture and my health. So peaceful results are a constant pressing, but with a lightness, filled with breaths and smiles.
That’s me. We’ll see what happens over the next ten years. I’m hoping it’ll be a trip.
