Sup Made Family!
According to Forbes only 1% of the population manages to turn a hobby, passion or something they love into a full-time profession. A whopping 90% of startup businesses fail – with even higher numbers for clothing labels. These are the odds that I faced early on.
I have done a lot of soul searching in my life, searching for the answers and the keys to success. I have researched the world’s best athletes and self made people, across almost every sport and profession.
I feel like sometimes we “#MadeFamily" are really in our own lane, the 3% minority. That despite what the world throws at us, we stay positive. We have dreams, but understand it’s hard work that will bring them to life. We have values, that if we say we are going to do something we do it. That my character – with the things I do when no one is looking – is even better than what people see.
I understand that my values and worldviews may be different from those of some people. But the way I see life is this: our time on this planet is very short in the grand scheme of things, so I don't have time to waste on things I don’t love or have passion about.
I love speaking with you on Snapchat, Facebook, texting, talking on the phone, and just hearing about the tests and challenges you face and what being part of #MadeFamily does for you.
I want to encourage you and give you a push in the right direction. Just keep going, and remain true to yourself. Find what it is you really want to achieve in the next 10 years, and whatever that is to you, work on it every day until it becomes your reality.
We are always here for you.
