#1. Don't compare yourself to others. It's a waste of time and energy. How successful someone else is has no impact on your life. This is YOUR journey. #2. Don't try to copy someone else's blueprint when starting a business. It won't work. Running a business is like a Choose Your Own Adventure but with real-life consequences. Every choice you make impacts the next choice you make. No two entrepreneurs experience the same path to success. Don't get me wrong, it's vitally important that entrepreneurs learn from other entrepreneurs experiences. Learn from as many people as you possibly can - just don't try to mimic what they've done. Go out there and make your own path. #MindsetMatters #BrandWolves

I fail, so I try again. I get knocked down, so I get the fuck back up. The path is never easy, but the only time you’ll truly ever lose is if you give up and take yourself out of the game. . Thank you to @draislv for inviting us to shoot at their incredible venue. . #MindsetMatters   #BrandWolves #PopularDemand #NoApologies

My Google Startup Grind event was an amazing experience. It's not often that you get an opportunity to speak in front of a really hungry, ambitious crowd. I'm humbled that people traveled from Texas, Las Vegas, San Diego, San Francisco San Jose and Arizona to attend. Plus, the LA attendees came out in the rain (that's rare, lol). I have to thank Jameela Jackson (@velvetropelife) and the rest of the Hollywood chapter for inviting me to speak. I appreciate @CapitalOne, @Glassell_House, @DonutPrincessLA and @WeWork for sponsoring the event. Stay tuned, more big things are coming in the near future. #OnlyYouCanStopYou #BrandWolves #PopularDemand #StartupGrind

If you're looking for somebody out there to motivate you, you're looking in the wrong place. Look inside. Find that thing that makes you want to get up in the morning and kill the day. Find that thing that keeps you going when things get difficult. Don't get me wrong, a great mentor, friend or coach can contribute, but at your core what motivates you is about you and YOUR journey. I've discovered working with so many talented, driven people that each of them is motivated by something different. The one common consistent trait is their motivation is the fuel that gets their engine going. Find your fuel. #WinEachDay #BrandWolves #PopularDemand

I am incredibly fortunate to have worked the past 5+ years with both of these amazingly talented women. Popular Demand would not be the brand that it is today without both @Thundercup and @kionachresean. They've made their mark in a male-dominated industry by doing work so good it HAD to be respected and admired. To this day they continue to be both fearless and bold. I am so proud of both of them. Happy #InternationalWomensDay. #RoleModels #BrandWolves #PopularDemand

Once you recognize that failure is part of the process, everything changes. It allows you to take the risks necessary to be successful. Yes, failing sucks. Not accomplishing what you set out to accomplish is a punch in the gut... but trust me, it sparks change. When I was younger, I tried to be perfect. I did everything that I could to avoid failing. Because of that, I limited myself. I wasn't taking risks and wasn't experiencing growth. I'm different now. I push the limits. When I fail, I look at what happened, diagnose it and learn from it. Now I understand that my failures are not the end of something, but oftentimes the beginning of something bigger and better. #MindsetMatters #BrandWolves

Our Pop-Up Seminar was an incredible experience that exceeded even my high expectations. Attendees came from Dallas, Utah, Denver, Ohio, all parts of California, and even New York. There was truly an amazing energy in the building. @Thundercup and @MikeLeShotIt spoke before me and they absolutely killed it. I was inspired to meet so many Popular Demand fans that are working to make the next great brand themselves. If you missed out, don't worry. We had to turn so many people down that wanted to attend, we plan on doing future seminars in different locations. Stay tuned! #PDSeminar #PopularDemand

Most people are way more talented than they even realize. They just need to be more focused, have more confidence and be relentless about their goals. I’m an animal. I'm absolutely relentless and my goals are my oxygen. #BrandWolves #PowerMovesOny #WinEachDay #PopularDemand

No one became successful without experiencing obstacles. Once those obstacles become excuses, you've lost. Game over. We've all been through a lot. We've all had awful days. I learned long ago that is part of the process. If you have big dreams, remove the word 'excuse' from your vocabulary or those dreams will die. #MindsetMatters #BrandWolves
