Over the next few years you’re going to get a real since of who I am as a person. Quick back ground, I have traveled to 56 countries, served in The United States Marine Corp for six year, gotten an MBA, bought and sold five businesses and I’m still in my 20s. I have my private pilot license and a certification in scuba diving. I’m upbeat and extremely positive. When people ask me how I’m doing, I always respond with another day in paradise. I one who believes our best days are always a heard of us. I don’t come from money and am far from rich. I work my ass off for everything that I get. I believe in giving back. Not paying it forward but getting your hands dirty and truly giving back. The intro in funny to me cause I hate talking about myself. I always get messages from people asking me, how did I get to where I’m at in life? The real question is where am I really? I just moved to Puerto Rico to live with one of my guy friends who studied with me in Hong Kong. I have no debt to speak of and I only pay 250 USD pre month for rent. Yes I have three other roommates which sometimes with their friends around seems like I have six or seven, but I’m young so it doesn’t bug me.

Pep Talk Me is about learning, motivating each other to opening our minds to new experiences. All of my friends tell me I should write a book. The problem is I’m learning everyday and the book would never be done. In stead I opt for this. A place where I can truly in the first time in my life really say whats on my mind. Anything I write will not be edited. Either you like it or you don’t But this site really for me. I write for myself, it’s like when I’m writing I have no insecurities.
Most people look at my life and say I want what you got. I say you can have it, in fact take it. I just want a girl who loves me and is very independent, and who loves to travel. I just wants someone who gets me, who connects with me in a way that makes you believe in fairy tales.
I just ask my roommates what they look for in a significant other. Why cause everyone was gathered around the kitchen. The responses are: good at math, amazing looks, and very out going! O, I live with one guy and two girls roommates and I’m the only single one. Don’t get me wrong I could have a girlfriend if I wanted one, and have had tons in the past. The amazing fact is i’m still friends with 95% of them. Turns out they have become some of my biggest supporters.
As you can tell by now, I write what ever is on my mind and I don’t follow at type of writing style. Well, I’m really looking forward to this ride of blogging cause I just turned a contact to write for a major news outlet. The funny thing is I can’t even spell. Talk about overcoming your disabilities.
I know my talks help people and that’s the driving focus that keeps me going but more ofter then not. People as a whole can bring you down, like mentally. That’s why I surround myself with good positive people who truly want to make a difference in the world. We inspire each other to “do more” and “go places” but as Garry would say, at the end of the day… I will inspire myself because I can’t rely on others to do the job for me.
My life is already full of stories. I hate it sometimes but I truly do have a story for everything. I’m smart but not smart but not brilliant. I’m simply willing to put in the time and do my research or learn what ever it takes to get me to where I want to be. Now that’s funny statement cause I still have no idea where that it. The only goal that is set in stone is to step foot in every country. I have a bucket list but it’s 90%
I take one picture a day not cause I’m addicted to social media but cause everyday tells a new story. Like all great travelers, I have seen more than I remember, and remember more than I have seen. My goal is to step foot in every country in the world. I now leave you with this quote….

Lastly, nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan Press On! has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race. – Calvin Coolidge
