13 years - Everyday - Into the evolution of beverages. Ingredients, taste, texture, price and convenience. When you start a journey that raises the fundamental question of, "why can't we...??" ... you get the opportunity to solve this puzzle in real life with real people. Not just an idea. Not just concept or dream. I've learned over and over so much about people in all industries and lifestyles. How they both think and act when it comes to food & beverages. When I started out making my own drinks/smoothies were so far from mainstream, pricy, complicated and not the most amazing delicious drinks in the world. The burning passion to know that both interested and uninterested people have changed their daily habits because of the this long journey is amazing. The systems that limit progress are built on false assumptions by those that have never lived the lifestyle. Daily, I get the opportunity to see or hear from people in everyday life and not a not just those "health" bubble. I value most those that get excited even after full doubt, "I don't do that kinda stuff" and then all of a sudden are sharing with their friends and family. My security is in the outcome, the end result. That makes a path clear and actions automatic. Failure to progress is always found in the practices. To me, walking on a journey of sensible actions, in all the core fundamentals your life that are based on what you want to exist... from fun to lifestyle to business to art and passions. The outcome will always be a result of daily practices. One of my biggest life questions, "What if these type of ingredients we as popular as soda and tea...?" After everyone gets to experience another level of beverages. What happens? Being in love with your place in your community. To me that's global. As many people as I can while I'm alive.

Had great adventure climbing at @island_rock_gym ⛰🏔🗻 and straight to a last minute unplanned performance with @louie_the_giant on @lindalinn @miss_krisi @couldbeyoutv .... here's short clip and go to my Facebook for entire show.
Going through photos yesterday... from the "child labor 🤣😂" workaholics to music to the adventures and nature. Hurricanes, tornadoes, moving a lot, all types of construction side projects, tree farm, fish farm, genetic illness, young entrepreneur of wild successes and challenges, sailing across environments and industries, doing a little bit of everything... no matter what life throws; shifting, thinking fast, solutions, mission, relating, working on the actuals... considering I was in very bad shape with my health fully by 20.5 years old, why did I aspire and act to not only live a basic life but to take on the height of what I could vision? It came from somewhere. Without a book to recap it was endless and forever, adversities. When I meet people, I never assume someone didn't get somewhere without the building blocks that create that life formula. When I decided to not stop working at 20-21 because of pain and outlook, and basically not even miss a day of work. I knew the work would force me to figure something out. Pain and "impossible" whether that's playing guitar, business, doing what I morally feel is right regardless of challenges... dreaming big to extent of not just saying something but practical achievement. When I pushed through, there is a wild life story that built skills, critical thinking, real decision making, hard work like digging a trench in the hot sun. I've always looked at my goals of what I can do with against my own challenges. I'm also into statistics and when you compound adversity to any achievement, you have to ask how you had it in you to go take all those steps, everyday all-in. I'm grateful for serious challenges because I don't have the simple casual small talk "problems" that aren't real to me in my life. Tunnel vision and reflection can be a light switch balancing act and a lot of what I done is obstacle realtime "driving." We gravitate toward interests and learn skills through practice. You have to have access to variety to put your puzzle together.
