Took a Break from Blogging to Travel… Yeah I’m a Wussy, I know…

Hey what’s up readers? Yes I’m still here ๐Ÿ™‚ I had a few people opt in to one of my contact forms asking if I was still blogging and active on this site, although I haven’t blogged since the end of July I am definitely still here! I spent the month of August traveling and didn’t spend too much time on my laptop… I ran all of my online business from my smartphone and outsourced the stuff I couldn’t do on my phone. So yeah, I’m back!

In the beginning of August I spent some time in the Fort Lauderdale-Miami area with some friends, which I don’t really consider “traveling” because I live a few hours north of Miami but still I was away from home doing business and networking down there with some cool cats.

I was also down there at the end of June for the Iheartradio Ultimate Pool Party! What an awesome weekend… had VIP tickets so it was cool hanging poolside with a bunch of rich pricks and Nick Cannon. We got to see Lil Jon, Iggy, Neon Trees, MAGIC and Jenny from the block Jennifer Lopez perform… yeah it was pretty badass not gonna lie Lol.

The first week of August I flew up to Connecticut for a few days for the first time.. was very cool seeing all the hills and landscape etc it is so much different then Florida.

I stayed at a friends house in the hills of Hartford CT and they showed me around the area for a few days.

My favorite part of the whole trip was just hiking a few miles with my headphones in through the hills in Middletown… yeah I’m easy to please.

I prefer the little things anyway.

On my last night there, their neighbors had all of the neighborhood over for an outdoor cook out with steak tips, some italian bread with mozzarella cheese on top (best thing ever) and of course expensive red wine!

Yeah I was staying with rich friends and they like their expensive wine.unnamed (3)

It was just cool sitting outdoors around the table under the stars and having dinner with a bunch of people I didn’t know… none of my neighbors in Florida really talk or do BBQ’s and stuff like that so it was nice to see people still get together and have dinner with each other.

After 5 days in Connecticut I flew back down to Florida for like 9 days before I was off to my next adventure in Los Angeles, California.

This was also my first time going to California let alone the west coast of the United States so yeah I was obviously pretty excited Lol. So I packed up my duffle bag yet again for a week in Los Angeles, my friend Jen was nice enough to drive me to Ft. Lauderdale Airport on August 20th so I could catch my flight… I had a long day ahead of me with a layover in Dallas before I finally landed in LAX at 4pm California time.

I finally made it there on time and stepped off the plane and on to the streets of L.A for the first time.

I met up with some friends who live in Los Angeles so they drove me to my hotel so I could check in and drop off all my stuff before we headed out to Long Beach for dinner at the Yard House… I was starving after flying around all day so I had a big ass ribeye with shrimp on the side… I deserved it ๐Ÿ™‚ .

We didn’t do too much that night because I was pretty tired and I’m from Florida so they are 3 hours ahead of what I’m used to so I crashed pretty early for their time.

We walked down Hollywood BLVD looking at all the stars and people dressed up as superheroes and cartoons Lol….

Then me being the tourist I am, I decided to pay the $35 and hop on one of those buses that drive you all around site seeing where they explain some of the history of the area.

They drive you through Beverly Hills, Hollywood hills and all the other cool spots so you can go ‘celebrity hunting’ lol although I didn’t see any celebrities on my trip… it’s okay I’m not star struck they are humans too, right?

The next day I went to the Aquarium of the Pacific to check out all the marine life there… really cool learning about all the animals, fish and other stuff they have. The penguins were so funny to watch swim around and waddle around lol penguins are badass.

This was where my trip went kinda downhill… I normally don’t write about the ‘negative’ going on in my life, but the last 2 days of my trip were pure hell.

I had horrible pain in my lower back (kidneys) but I didn’t want to go see a doctor out there or check into a hospital because my flight was 2 days away and I just had a fear of getting stuck out there. So my stubborn ass just sat around my hotel in horrible pain for the last 2 days while I waited for the day my flight left… I had no appetite and didn’t eat anything… lost a few pounds and really looked like crap Lol I wish I had a picture to post but I wasn’t taking selfies at the time.

flying over ft lauderdaleLuckily I found the strength to walk out of the hotel and find a cab and get to LAX and catch my flight.

It never hurt so much just to walk through an airport it’s usually an easy task… especially for someone young in their early 20’s like me… but I caught my first flight to Phoenix which connected to Ft. Lauderdale from there… that 4.5 hour flight was awful lol I was still in the worst pain of my life and I hate flying anyway so being on a plane for 4.5 hours didn’t help. (Flying over Ft. Lauderdale beach above..ย What a view! ๐Ÿ™‚ )

Just thankful that I made it home safe! I went home and went right to bed, I didn’t have the energy to go to the hospital that night. The next day I woke up and felt a lot better so instead of going to the hospital I just went to the local walk in clinic and they accepted my insurance (whewww…)

After some blood work and other tests they said I had a bad kidney infection… no wonder the lower back pain!

So they put me on the BRAT diet which is like bread, bananas, rice, apples and toast I think they said… so I had to stick to that for a week and drink tons of water everyday to flush out my kidneys. I’m doing a lot better now just taking my diet and health a lot more seriously… I stopped drinking coffee and alcohol and haven’t in weeks and I feel a lot better.

Anyways… I’ll post some of the pictures I took while I was out in Cali below… hope you guys enjoyed reading ๐Ÿ™‚ Share some of your recent travel stories in the comments I would love to hear them!

My First Amway Meeting and Jive Turkeys Ruining MLM

I remember my first Amway meeting at my local Best Western Hotel lobby lol. This is where I learned the difference between employee/business owner which was crucial… especially at my age. I was fresh out of high school (okay so I dropped out) and deciding between college, military or this home business thing. I tried my local colleges business administration program for 8 months but like high school, it just wasn’t for me.

On top of that I couldn’t join the military because I couldn’t pass a drug test.. all of my income went straight to pills and pot…ย The thought of snorting pills still makes me gag to this day.

My only option was this home business deal known as Amway so I took $150 out of savings to join.

I thought I was investing in business ownership, but it was something much more. It was mentorship, new friends, the ability to travel, but most importantly, it was the personal development books and audios that I was introduced to that would finally set me free. Not financially free (just yet) but from hard drugs and my addictive personality.

Everyone has a story about their past, good or bad.

People need to hear your story folks… you might save someones life.

Unfortunately there are too many jive turkeys in this industry who put on a show by censoring their posts, copy and pasting Zig Ziglar quotes and not speaking their mind. I may be unorthodox, I may be controversial, but nobody can deny that I’m as real as it gets.

I don’t hold back, neither should you. Period.

Here I am 5 yrs later, published author with multi-million dollarย deals in my email. Don’t forget where you came from!

Special Keynote w/ Dr. Wayne Dyer on Overcoming Daily Obstacles in Self-Motivation

Special Keynote Address with Dr. Wayne Dyerย

Dr. Wayne Dyer

Check out this 1 hr and 20 min video of Dr. Wayne Dyer, “the Father of Motivation,” shares pearls of wisdom at a keynote address on how each of us can overcome the obstacles we face everyday in self-motivation.

People ask me how I stay so motivated when working from home or a big project online. I typically will start my day with a motivational video like the one you see above on the topics of personal development, self-help or motivation.

I recently signed up for a life long personal performance journey.

I am always investing in myself as far as furthering my education, and when I saw this program for the first time, I knew it was something very unique.

I immediately filled out the form and started diving into the videos and audios available inside the secret members area.

I don’t always recommend these programs because a lot of them are filled with hype or overpriced, but this one is different than anything I’ve ever seen before, and I feel it is my obligation to share it with you guys, my readers!
