I’ve been quiet here on my blog for some time now. No excuse for that other than I’ve been busy shipping for clients. Thats a good thing and a bad thing as one might think.
A New Independence of sorts happened, serendipitously, on July 4th….
Some things have been happening behind the scenes and I’m excited to move forward with a bunch of new projects. Some of which I will announce now and some I will announce in the weeks to come.
Fat Ass To Fit 2.0
Firstly, I’ve teetered with this topic for some time and it has to do with my health. I’m a Fat Ass! And I’ve been procrastinating taking care of myself for some time. Yeah, yeah, yeah, I know! I’ve tried a lot of different ‘things’. All of which I failed miserably with. Whether it was one program or another, they all seemed to be ok for ‘a while’. I think the best results I had was from Bill Phillips’ Body For Life. Despite the results I received, they didn’t last long. And that I believe is the key….for me at least!
That said, I’ve been studying a bit on the topic and I’ve armed myself with some knowledge that I think is sustainable for me.
You see recently, I’ve been observing someone who has achieved and sustained results that I’m looking to emulate. That someone is Chris Winters. I’ve listened to a presentation that he provided to a group of people about the results he’s achieved through Intermittent Fasting and an eating / exercise regimen that I believe is scientifically sound and sustainable. So much so that I’ve tested it over a short period of time and I have to say, I’m profoundly convinced of its merits! In additional I’ve done a ton of reading on the subject and the overall benefits of intermittent fasting that only seem to be more of a reason worthy of consideration. I’ll let you decide. Check out the presentation here:
And so, I’ve set out on another journey. It won’t be easy, but I think the destination is worth it!
I’ve realized now that many of the projects I was working on were just projects without ownership. I decided it was a good idea to create a holding company and agency that directed many of the projects. Neato Media will provide that umbrella over many of the products that are published either as its own assets, in partnership or on behalf of it’s clients.
The launch of Neato Media was a bit quiet. Thats ok. I’ve been busy with clients and helping launch their projects that include apps and membership sites. But now its time. Time to refocus and show how these projects can flourish by example.
That said, I’ll be relaunching a few projects soon and adding more in the near future. Some of which I will announce here:
- GeoFilters Blueprint (How To Create, Publish and Profit from Snapchat GeoFilters)
- Install Magazine (iOS and Android)
- Podcasting Magazine (iOS and Android)
- (Drew Griffin) My own Personal App (iOS)
- Philly Sports Mag (coming soon)
- Directory App Blueprint (Learn To Develop, Publish and Profit with Directory Apps)
And so here I am. Restarting again? Thats ok. I think its ok to start again. Especially when your ship is off course. Refocusing can renew a sense of independence. And although this new independence has nothing to do with my Country’s history of Independence Day, it does have everything to do with it for me.
It represents a freedom that I choose to invoke. It represents a choice to shift and start anew on projects that matter to me and in some way, matter to others when those projects reach their potential.
For a while there, I was feeling like I couldn’t shift or start again because of the opinions of others or what my clients might think or say. But, as it were, that was just not true. And as I’ve come to realize, it truly is awesome to choose and enjoy independence.
If I could leave you with just one bit of advice I would say, don’t wait to make the decision to ‘go for it’, whatever ‘it’ may be. If something is holding you back, make your decision to just go get it!
