I’ve been MIA.

Sorry guys,

Been kind of busy lately. I will let you know that I’m thinking about starting my own small little company. Nothing serious. It’s a subscription based service that focuses on giving mini gifts to women whenever ever its their time of the month.

I actually had a long talk about it with my girlfriend and a couple of her friends, and they all agreed for a flat rate of maybe $20 a month they’d be interested in the services as well.

I was thinking about including limited time only exclusive chocolates, coupons to ben & jerry’s, boy friend tees, soaps & shampoos & more! It sounds like a fun idea, so I’ve been looking into small procurement services trying to find out how to order product when orders come in and etc. If you’ve been following a long with me for the past month or two , you’ll know that I’m all about feed back.

Being an entrepreneur is fun, but it definitely has it’s set of challenges. For one, coming up with a sensible idea that can create jobs seems to be the primary solution of starting a successful business, but more importantly creating residual income creates more time to do other things. I’d really like to get this idea up and running off the ground to where I can hang out with my friends and family a lot more you know? I found a couple of companies that may be able to make this happen, but I’m running into issues of where I’m going to find product and customize for each women who wants to subscribe to the subscription service.

I’ll try to keep everyone busy, because I really would like to see this project through. Expect to hear big things from met in the future.

Bye,

Matt

Always making progress

I’m happy to say that the first entrepreneur rule I’m going to work on is #2, “Entrepreneurs prioritize their diet and nutrition”. My friend is flying up from Florida and he owns a CrossFit Gym in St. Petersburg. He broke it down to me pretty simple. He said diet and nutrition isn’t as hard as what people make it to be. CrossFit’s motto is “Constantly varied, functional movements, performed at high intensity”. As simple as it sounds it makes sense considering the basic type font of their logo.

He said first you need to find a gym that is going to cater to your needs. Just like an entrepreneur you need to prioritize what is important now and try to establish some short term goals to accomplish first.

I did some research and it appears that my first action of making focus steps towards fitness is cleaning out my fridge and filling it with whole foods. I didn’t realize how many processed foods I had inside my freezer.

We started breaking down a cool diet called the Zone diet. It breaks down food in to the three macronutrients. Protein which equals 7 grams, Carbs which equals 9 grams and fat which is 1.5 grams because it’s calorically more dense than it’s counter parts. This anti-inflammation diet has worked for thousands of clients and I’m excited to try it out as well.

 We’re going to try and find a box in the California area, but he said when looking for a Crossfit Gym, it’s imperative that you focus on safety, goals and knowledge of the coaches.

Speaking to him on the phone really brought back some awesome memories and I’m glad he’s coming to town. If you’re ever in the St. Petersburg area and looking to get a good workout give him a ring at www.spscgym.com to show them support. What I’m most excited about it the opportunity to hangout with some old friends, but also work on becoming more fit and mentally focussed on becoming a great entrepreneur and leader one day.

This is the first step of many and I’ll let you all know how it goes!

 Later,

Matt
