** ENDING 47 with 66 ** So I’m ending my 47th trip around the sun with a bang. I had a goal of completing a metric century ride in preparation for something bigger next year.

This is a 100 km (66 mi) ride. 🚲
For those that don’t know me well, this is a big deal. Reason is, I’m not really a cyclist. I’m an old-time skater who has equally enough of a hard time getting over wearing tight pants as I do peddling this distance 😂
Anyhow ... I went for it solo because my good friend Luke couldn’t make this one ... AND I DID IT‼️ I was spent after I completed it 💀and was only focused on nutrition 🌮🍺, a shower and a nap. lol. Which is why I’m just getting to this post. So here are the stats:

Distance: 66 miles (106 km)
Time: 5:28:37
Calories Burned: 4,675
Average Speed: 12.0 mph
Max Speed: 31.6 mph
Elevation Change: 677 feet
Total Pedals: A metric __ ton!

So what did I get out of this experience? A lot.

First, the obvious, the exercise. 🚵‍♀️ DUH … and the opportunity to support an inaugural event for a great cause.
Beyond that, I achieved something that was tough. Honestly, I wasn’t sure I could do it, especially alone. But I stayed with what I’ve learned about achieving goals. Stay focused and don’t quit! Just don’t do it, DON’T QUIT. Focus on the prize at the end. 🏅

Even when it’s tough. My Dad’s voice is always popping into my head. “You can achieve anything you put your mind to.” Well, I certainly did that Pop! 🤜🏻🤛🏼 Finally, I got alone time. Time to reflect on things and hash out future goals. Time to focus on what’s important, what I’ve achieved in the last few years and what I want to achieve next. 🕑

I’ve been through a lot of tough situations in the past few years being an entrepreneur. But one thing that I know that is absolutely 100% true. Don’t let ANYONE steer you away from your dreams. Focus on what you want out of life and go for it! Find a great partner and build an even better team. Obtain laser focus. Go after your goals and don’t let anyone/anything stop you. Because you got this! ♥️🤗 It’s been one hell of a year! 🔥

25 MILES IN THE BAG
.
If there is one thing I’ve learned while being an entrepreneur .... it’s that ... while building a business it’s very easy to lose focus on your health.
.
Long days at the computer. 💻
.
Eating lunch out everyday. 🍴
.
Stressful days lead to drinks all too often. 🍸
.
Then before you know it, your health is all out of whack.
.
Well SCREW THAT!
.
I’m no longer living my life being controlled by my business.
.
I’m tackling health goals first. So I can control how my business is managed.
.
Yesterday I completed my first bike event with my business partner. 🚲
.
25 miles in 2 hours! 🔥
.
A little slower than what I wanted (was targeting 1:45)
.
But it doesn’t matter. We did it.
.
Next up ... a 50 miler! 💪🏻
.
What ways can you approach a healthy lifestyle FIRST ... before taking care of your business?

Focused on a few goals professionally as well as in my personal life.

FIND YOUR TRIBE
.
My business partner Luke and I have attended many an events over the last few years.
.
We always go with a few objectives in mind.
.
New Knowledge 📚
Relationship Building 🤝
Planning 📆
.
Last weekend was no exception. As a matter of fact ... it was probably one of the BEST events we’ve ever been to.
.
We attended an amazing event with many motivated entrepreneurs and several mentors.
.
From all around the world 🌎
.
All of the mentors have built either million dollar 💵 and in some cases billion dollar 💵 💵 businesses!
.
Our sessions with the mentors answered many of the questions @lukenesler and I had.
.
We’re very much excited about building new relationships with the other members and mentors as well.
.
Special thanks to @akashawnthomas for putting on such an amazing event at his home.
.
We really appreciate you! 🤜🏻🤛🏼
.
I think we’ve found our tribe!! 🔥

ALWAYS. GIVE. MASSIVE. VALUE.
.
If you truly do focus on helping others first, by giving massive value.
.
You will win.
.
You just can’t lose if you help others first.
.
It’s always been my goal or should I say “our” goal at Impakt to give tons of assistance to our clients.
.
Our clients come FIRST. Why? Because they are the reason we’re here.
.
We look at ourselves differently than other agencies. We believe we’re here to educate our audience.
.
We help others understand that the digital advertising landscape is changing.
.
By always giving value.
.
Then, we help them learn what they need to do to get their message out to the right audience.
.
Today Luke and I recorded our latest training for our Impakt Marketing Academy (IMA).
.
IMA focuses on helping people learn the techniques we use to drive traffic, convert and grow sales online.
.
Would you like to learn more about IMA?

YOU’RE NEVER TOO GOOD ...
.
You’re never too good to suck it up and do what it takes to succeed. Never too good to do something different, that others might see as being strange, in order to hit targets goals. 🎯
.
I’ve known many people who feel entitled to nothing but the best, even if they don’t deserve it.
.
My father told me when I was young that “you’ll appreciate things more if you work hard for them”. 👨🏻
.
Well that surely is true ... and God knows I’ve busted my tail to get to where I’m at today! 💪🏻
.
Even at the ripe young age of 47, I’ll suck it up and sleep on the floor of the airport if I have to. 💤
.
Screw it. I don’t care. Suck it up. Get some rest, so you can perform at peak levels and move on. 🔥
.
What are some crazy things you’ve done to help to push forward and meet your goals?

SURROUND YOURSELF WITH SUCCESS
.
Every now and then you have to remove yourself from your normal environment to get clear vision on how to proceed with your future.
.
Last weekend was just that.
.
A visit to Nashville for what turned out to be an epic event. An event for entrepreneurs who would meet with millionaire mentors.
.
Made new friends.
.
Made new contacts.
.
Building new relationships.
.
Planning for an amazing future.
.
All of this would not be possible if I didn’t step out of my comfort zone.
.
How can you remove yourself from your norm and surround yourself with success?

ON THE ROAD AGAIN?
.
I’ve realized the importance of keeping on the go. 🚦
.
Hitting the road and going outside of your comfort zone. ⭕️
.
In my opinion, it’s a vital part of achieving your dreams. 🤔 💭
.
For years (probably more like decades), early in my career, I was static. I stayed in my comfort zone. 📆 .
Because I was scared. 😟 .
I didn’t challenge myself. I just followed the system. I became part of the flock 🐑.... and it got me nowhere.
.
Today, my business partner and I are on the move again. ✈️ Off to Nashville for a business event.
.
To meet with those who have become much more successful than us. 👨🏻‍💻
.
To learn from them. 📚
.
To network. 🤝 .
To avoid mistakes they have made in the past. 🛑
.
To plan for the future.🚀
.
Here’s to another adventure to achieve our dreams! 🔥🔥
.
.
What ways can you travel outside of your comfort zone in order to grow?
.
It doesn’t have to be physical travel either. 😀

DO YOU HAVE A GAME PLAN?
.
Every Sunday I plan out my week.
.
It’s the very first thing I do. I prioritize my tasks based on the things I can control. All managed in my digital and paper calendars.
.
I include the things that will set me up for achieving my goals.
.
The goals I have set for myself for each month … which ultimately set me up for success for the goals I have set for the year.
.
.
Essentially I create a game plan. Each week.
.
.
And my family comes FIRST. My family & health responsibilities go in first. Then my work tasks next.
.
This process has proven to work for me.
.
It has helped me get out of debt, save money, fine tune my businesses, create my own personal empire, etc. etc.
.
Without this “game plan” process I would be lost.
.
.
How do you set yourself up for success every week?

SET & ACHIEVE GOALS
.
Alright ...
.
We here it every day.
.
Set your goals. Write them down. Focus on only the items that will help you achieve your goals. Make a public announcement of what you’re going to do. Etc. Etc.
.
Well guess what? It’s true!
.
The problem is that most people don’t ACT toward what they want to achieve. (I’m guilty of this as well at times)
.
But let me tell you this ... from my past experience, I’m most happy when I actually set & achieve my goals.
.
As a matter of fact ... I can’t imagine NOT going through the goal setting process!
.
.
▶️ PRO TIP
.
The past few months I’ve set goals for the month. These goals help me move toward my goals for the year.
.
Each week I only focus on the things I can control. The things that help me move toward achieving my monthly goals.
.
If you do this and nothing else, I promise you will live a much happier life.
.
.
(Side note. Here I’m focused on my new goal of completing a 25 mile bike race) 😃
