2016 Year in Review


Moved to Austin, TexasAfter being on the road for most of 2014 and 2015, I needed to find a warm place to spend the winter. I had never been to Texas before but heard wonderful things about Austin so I went there in January 2016. All of the hype was spot-on - I loved my time there!

Here are some quick highlights from my time in Austin:

  • Camped and hiked in Big Bend National Park
  • Went to lots of cold springs in Texas
  • Went ski diving for the first time
  • Sung karaoke for the first time (totally sober!)
  • Started investing in real estate and have owned over 400 acres of land in Texas.
  • Did the Landmark Forum and had multiple breakthroughs and now I see endless possibilities in life.
  • Learned how to have authentic, genuine conversations with anyone.
  • Learned how not to treat women and also how to seem women as people and not an object of my desire.
  • Built great relationships with many new friends.
  • Planned a 3 month ski road trip to 11 mountains over 7 states and into Canada
  • Sold my old rusty van and converted a new(er) sprinter van into my new 'house'
  • New Crossfit PRs: a 310 lbs front squat, 410 lbs deadlift, 255 lbs bench press, 240 lbs clean, 8:51 Helen, 1:32 - 500m row.
  • Camped at most of Texas's great state parks
  • Attended one of the best business conferences - Freedom Fast Lane Live.
