Officially moved away from Lancaster again! Took off yesterday and now getting all settled in Las Vegas πŸ”₯ Never thought I’d live here but hey, sometimes you just gotta go where the opportunity is. Plus every time I’ve stepped outside my comfort zone, something great has happened. So here’s to a fantastic 2018 πŸ™πŸΌ

What up everyone! Idk about you but I love being a part of awesome groups of people! With that being said, I’m doubling down on instagram growth this year πŸ’― β€’
β€’
One of the ways I do that is by starting engagement groups which are groups of no more than 15 that you can send your post to in order to get good engagement to boost organic reach on your post. β€’
β€’
If you’re SERIOUS about growing your Instagram following and helping others do the same, comment your Instagram username below and I’ll add you to a group! πŸ’₯πŸ’₯πŸ’₯ β€’

LET’S DO IT! πŸ”₯πŸ”₯

You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with. πŸ‘ˆπŸΌπŸ‘ˆπŸΌ Continually networking and auditing your inner circle will only lead to more opportunities and greater success. β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”

You don't have to be an arrogant jerk to do that. It's just about making consistent effort to add more positive influences into your daily life than negative influences.

The more I think about what this year has in store the more excited I get! Anyone else feel like this?? βœŒπŸΌπŸ‘ŠπŸΌ

Have you been to #YosemiteNationalPark?? ⛰️

Watching the sunrise over half Dome was one of the most serene moments of my life πŸ™‚
β€’
However, to get there was a daunting task πŸ˜‚ We drove up the night before to Fresno, slept in a hotel for about three hours, got up around 1:00 am and headed up to #yosemitenationalpark
β€’
When we got there, it was the middle of the night obviously so we could take some long exposure shots of the stars, and then we proceeded to the half dome hike ✨
β€’
It was about 5:30 or so when we got there which means we had to wait another hour or so for this shot to happen, and being as tired as we were, it wasn’t easy. But we decided to stay and it was worth it πŸ™ŒπŸΌ
β€’
Then the most difficult part was, we had to drive back that day cuz my buddy @andystafford3 had work 😳 β€’
Moral of the story: sometimes being uncomfortable for a while to have a great experience is totally worth it even if it is only for a couple minute sunrise πŸŒ…

Before (top) and After (bottom)
β€’
Best year? Or worst year? (WARNING: Long post)πŸ‘‡πŸΌ
β€’
I was closing out my best financial year ever (at the time) at the end of 2015. Made more than I ever had in about 20 hour work weeks. But during that time, I also got in the worst physical shape of my life. I guess I didn’t realize it because of how slowly it happened πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ
β€’
But it was the Christmas party at the company I was working for, and I wanted to get some new jeans for it. So I went to Kohl’s to grab some really quick, but when I started trying stuff on, I realized something. I couldn’t fit into a size 36 anymore 🀯 β€’
β€’

So there I was...250 lbs and wearing a size 38 waist. It was a task to bend over to put socks on, I was uncomfortable when I sat because my stomach would sit on my belt buckle, and I just didn’t feel confident in my appearance at all πŸ˜•
β€’
That was when I decided enough was enough. The pictures below don’t actually show what I was at 250 cuz I was too embarrassed to even take pictures of myself at that point, but I was about 235-240 in them 😳
β€’
It’s been a long process but at the beginning of this year I finally caught the difference. If I was gonna get back down and stay down, a diet and insane workout program weren’t the answers. It was gonna take a lifestyle change...consistent effort over time. 🀫
β€’
A couple of days ago for the first time since sophomore year of college, I weighed under 200. Oh and I forgot to mention, had to buy a couple of size 32 waist pants recently cuz the 34s were just too baggy 😁 β€’
β€’

I went back and forth on sharing this picture because of how embarrassed I was that I let myself get to where I was, but to someone out there could use some encouragement, just know you’re not alone and it’s not easy, but it’s totally worth it πŸ’―πŸ’― β€’

No I’m not super creative with naming things. I mean, when I was a kid, my stuffed dog’s name was Doggy.
β€’
And my little stuffed dog’s name was Puppy.
β€’
Oh and my stuffed bear from Knott’s Berry Farm that had the word β€œKnott’s” on its chest? Yeah, his name was Knotts πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ

Traveling gives perspective and perspective allows us a sneak peek into the way that someone views the events of life πŸ‘‰πŸΌ which only helps us to see things the way other people see them πŸ‘‰πŸΌ which ultimately allows us to build deeper, more genuine connections πŸ’―πŸ’―

Having @elenacardone on the show was a blast! In her episode we talk about who Elena was before she met Grant, why she doesn't mind people being a tad spammy, and why getting rich shouldn't be perceived as selfish πŸ’―πŸ’―

Our view from our room in Gold Coast was maybe the best view I’ve ever had in a hotel room/Airbnb before. Just incredible 😍😍 (and there’s a chance someone threw stuff off of it to watch it fall...won’t say who)

Experiences, in my opinion, beat just having things. I’ve spent quite a bit of cash these past couple years on hotels,🏒 hostels, Airbnbs, cruises,πŸ›³οΈ flights,✈️ Ubers, taxis,πŸš– and just about every other travel thing you can think of, and I’ve spent even more on personal development like events, conferences, mentorships, and masterminds.

I did the math recently, and if I just bought the truck I’ve been wanting for a while instead of doing all of this, it’d be completely paid off plus some right now. πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ But I wouldn’t trade any of it!! I think life is more about what you can do, see, and learn rather than what you have. What do you think? πŸ€” (Btw, don’t get me wrong, I’ll definitely be getting a nice car or truck here in the next year or two! Just not at the expense of experiences or learning πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ)βœ… πŸ’₯

Building relationships with people has got to be the most important activity we can dedicate time to 🧐 Leveling up who you hang out with and take advice from will inevitably level you up as well πŸš€ I didn’t ask a ton of business questions when I was at this table although I definitely could have. But I actually got to know these people for who they are, and it was a great time! Appreciate all of you! Thanks for taking the time to chat πŸ’―πŸ’―πŸ’―
