Risk Without Regret – My Story

Interview Click the image to listen to the podcast or click HERE

We all have a story. We all have had trials, failures and success of some kind.

I recently had the opportunity to sit down and tell my story on the Risk Without Regret radio show.

There is a reason I share this outside of self promotion. It’s for only one reason really – to show others that we all have to overcome adversity and we are all human. The choice of success and failure is ours and no one else.

You see for over a decade I was ashamed of my younger years and tried to hide them in hopes no one would bring it up.

But guess what? Those stories of my past made me who I am today.

And I am okay with who I am. Shit – I like who I am and where my life is.

But I had to own my past as part of the story and not be ashamed of it.

  • I grew up in a divorced home.
  • I slept on a mattress on the floor.
  • I was a juvenile delinquent who was in and out of the system.
  • I was a single dad.
  • I have been fired from jobs I liked
  • I lost both my parents, lost my source of income, had a major surgery and had a son born in the ICU all within 6 months of each other.

On the flip side of that I have built over 20 projects, business, raised 10 million in capital, helped hundreds of people overcome adversity, I am an author, renegade, lover and happy with who I am.

This is my story. Unfiltered. Unadulterated and OWED.

Today’s lesson – Own your story. Don’t be ashamed of who you are.

Cheers!

The Foreign Language That Will Change The World

 

As you read this – you have checked your email, status updates on social media and possibly looked at your bank account. All of these things done online. I think we can all agree on the importance of the internet. When you pull back the covers on how things work – CODE is the underlying aspect that holds it together. Personally I have spent the past 10 years learning and researching how to create everything from websites to mobile applications.

The one similarity I can draw between the learning code and academia would be that of learning a new language. More and more, technology becomes the fabric that is holding many of our dealings together. Keep this in mind – the first iPhone was introduced June 29. 2007. That was only 8 years ago. When I started learning to code, it was similar to learning a new language. The phrasing, the intricacies and the way full pieces are stranded together. Then it hit me – Learning to CODE will be the new Foreign Language of the future. It’s how we communicate, businesses are built and legacies can flourish.

In the United States academic programs, only 2% of learning is spent on computer programing. Yet the over 60% of the jobs that are open in the market place are tied to Computer Science. I was introduced to the team at Code.org a few years ago. If you watch the video above you can see the importance of learning how to code and where it sits in level of importance for or future.

There are many free courses you can take to start this journey. As you look into and do your own research, please take the below into consideration. You can also access a great data base of tutorials over at Code.org.
