It’s time to reboot things here.
A little over three years ago when I started this blog I began writing about entrepreneurship and business success. While writing, I never quite found my voice, or purpose for my writing outside of self promotion. Over time I stopped writing and two years passed while my site sat mostly stagnant.
Two years later and a lot of things have changed. I live in a new city, just celebrated my 3rd wedding anniversary and turned 30 years old. That last one, has hit me the most though. I’ve spent a lot of time really thinking about my own personal identity, who I am, what I’ve done over the last 10 yrs of my 20s. As I’m sure anyone would.
But now I have found my voice and my vision for this site rooted deep in my personal belief of rugged individualism and nationalism, that is American exceptionalism.
I have a lot of ideas about becoming and starving towards being a free, educated and moral man, that I’d like to share with those who are concerned with the direction the world is heading. And I’ve decided to start sharing.
Through the pursuit of knowledge and sharing of ideas, I hope to wake up others out of their modern day conformity. To challenge men and woman to become exceptional individuals. Who strive for nothing short of being the best of themselves and reaching their highest human potential.
I’m motived by American history and our founding fathers. Say what you will, “Slave Owners”, “Racist” but Thomas Jefferson spoke 3 langauges at age 7, went on to LAW SCHOOL at age 17 and wrote the declaration of Independence and helped draft the constitution at age 33!
Or if you like, you can think back to the great men of the renaissance. We have this idea in modern culture that these where all just freaks, really smart old guys. But a lot of them did a lot of really amazing things at a young age, and just lived to be very old.
Take Ben Franklin for example. The man was just smarter than most of us.
I think there is something to be learned in history on how to develop ourselves. And I think history can also teach us how to prepare for what’s coming in our future as well.
So bare with me while I work to reboot this site, after all I’ve got a few opinions to offer, some sound advice, a few personal experiments and some how-to’s that I am really excited to share.
