HOW TO BUST THROUGH FEAR | 2019
Welcome to my blog a mixed bag of brand, business, creativity and positivity. The idea for The Bustinator was conceived in 2017. I became a tad obsessed with the ideologies of Simon Sinek, especially “The Golden Circle” after watching his landmark Ted Talk video “How Leaders Inspire Action."
EMBRACE THE HELL YEAH INSIDE OF YOU!
This got me questioning and thinking about my “why." Why do I exist...and what is my purpose in life. I decided to audit my personal and career accomplishments in an effort to define my purpose as I continue to maneuver through life and try to add value and happiness to the lives of those around me. This journey lead me on a path to start exploring the teachings of a number of great business, leadership & motivational gurus including some of my favorites, Gary Vaynerchuk, Marshall Goldsmith and yes even the master Tony Robbins.
Armed with this enlightenment I decided to stop resting on my laurels, take the bull by the horns and focus my energy on busting into something great. I enlisted the help of one of my design comrades Brandon Guthrie of Happy Camper Creative in order to put pen to paper and start creating The Bustinator brand. The mission was to meld my passion for business, creativity, entrepreneurship and good old “making-shit-happen” skill-set with my obsession for design, branding and leadership. I wanted to create a personal brand that would not only shape my future but possibly shape the future of others in a fashion brimming of fulfillment and aggressive positivity.
A brand driven by purpose that would stem from my personal experiences & values and proclaimed through four key Bustinator principles:
Bust Through the Bullshit
Bust Through Fear
Bust Out of Stagnation
Bust Into Something Great
All of this is wrapped in an identity and messaging package that highlights my personality and pays homage to an era that had a huge influence on my life….the 80s baby!
So as I peel back the layers of my past and shed light on the future I welcome you to join me to bust out of stagnation and mediocracy and not only break down the doors into the unknown, but thrive within it. So unite, turn up the volume to 11 and embrace the hell yeah inside you!
