Calling No Bullshit

On a solo hike, right near the end of the trail, I had to cross through a herd of cattle. Most the herd was relaxing and didn't care one bit about my presence. This bull, however, was less impressed with my presence. I had to walk with 8 meters of him, and he never took his eyes off of me!

I don’t believe in get-rich-quick schemes or an instant happiness formulas. I believe in getting out of “the box.” I’ll share what I know and the lessons that I’ve learned. Success is not a destination, it’s an adventure.

You’re here because you are looking for something. I wish I could offer you a red pill or a blue pill. Of course, I can not. You must be willing to take an honest look at yourself, as you begin your adventure.

Some adventures may last only a short time. The adventure that is your life will last, well, it will last a lifetime. Your ability to stay the course and trek toward your vision will make all the difference in your world.

A Little About Shea

In 2004, only a couple of months after launching, my first online company started turning a profit. I promised myself that I wouldn’t quit my job until my business was making more than me. Within a year, I turned in my resignation and never looked back.

For years, many people thought that I was a stay-at-home dad. After all, I didn’t have to “go to work.” and I didn’t complain about my “job.” I spent tons of time with my kids, enjoyed volunteering, hiked thousands of miles, meditated on isolated mountain peaks, and even a published a sci-fi novel!

I had something that others didn’t – HAPPINESS, FLEXIBILITY, and SUCCESS.
