Welcome to Roadrunner!

RoadrunnerSo my brother and I formed our own business titled Roadrunner: we build your social capital. I’ve always held onto closely-guarded marketing secrets and kept them to myself while not wanting to share what I know with others..  I have serious courage now to start a new company  and it’s great. My brother, Joseph, is going to take care of the management end. I’m learning a lot of code, administering a server, running automated systems, and doing marketing analysis. Starting a few years back, I’ve been able to accrue close to 100K followers on Instagram and attribute this mostly to my photography and the high-quality content that I post, daily. Building social network communities is no easy task and takes a lot of effort, which very few people care to undertake or simply lack the patience to watch it grow slowly; yet most people want or covet that kind of connection or audience.  I naturally have an obsession and passion for networking and probably wouldn’t have pushed the envelope so dang hard if I didn’t.

So now I’m going to start doing it for a few businesses through a selective process and taking on responsibilities that I can manage. These clients will learn my knowledge and insight. My dream has been to develop an independent career as an entrepreneur in this niche because I have the expertise to manage and build social capital. I don’t know any company that wouldn’t want this sort of service? We are here to help every company we work with, one-to-one level, to help them grow and forge their way through the murky territory of social networking.  Taking this lead has required climbing out of my comfort circle and applying what I know to other business niches and it’s proving fruitful and beneficial for others. This is what I do as a mover & shaker and don’t waste any time.

There’s are two ways to deal with social networking… You can be a slave to it or you can put social networks to work for you. That’s what I’ve learned to do! They do my bidding!!!

 

Shoestring Thoughts & Free Stuff

I’m feeling compelled to write especially while sleepless and awake at five in the morning. I’ve got everything on my mind from business ideas and ways to improve my life. My birthday is next week and it serves as a reminder of what I’ve accomplished and what I need to accomplish in order to meet my goals and succeed in my future.

If you’re looking for mind candy, I’ve got an overload of useful ideas but this blog is a serious endeavor and I want to do it right. Some good advice to consider about blog-building, creating a shoe-string start-up, or anything else that becomes unique, try checking out Chris Guillebeau and you can find his awesome free PDF guide: 279 Days to Overnight Success! I discovered his blog just a few days ago while scouring the internet during a brainstorming session dedicated to Desert Rat. So much information exists but this is indispensable!

Anyways, I’ve been a natural writer my whole life an advocate for creativity but I do believe we live with a culture that is attention deficit and people want to read things quickly so I’ll keep this sweet. With all the possibilities that exist with the internet, I would like to exploit every opportunity to network with artists and entrepreneurs from all over the the world, and that is part of the grand plan. I don’t want to burn out though so I have a regimen to post regularly to avoid this.

My old blog was West Desert Journal. It was mostly poems and thoughts centered around the environment and the intoxicating beauty of the Desert Southwest but I mostly wrote for myself,  not a bigger audience. It was a form of personal liberation and therapy and I have grown in my outlook. I want to produce valuable content and free resources  for my readers. At the same time, I feel hindered by my own fears to change start something big for the better but I remind myself that the biggest risk that I face is inaction and doing nothing at all.

Some of my fears include worries as to whether I’m going to be able to connect with a substantial audience, garner enough readers, or even be a worthy writer? My biggest fear is failing. So I’m admitting weaknesses and want to be stronger than them. So I’m taking action on my dreams and goals. Taking a business-like approach has reignited my passion to write and perhaps produce something of value!

Every Little Golden Opportunity to be a Mover and Shaker

The most powerful motivators, thinkers and writers that revolutionized my outlook on life are Dale Carnegie, Edward Abbey, Leslie Marmon Silko, and Robert Greene. Now the newest influence is Tim Ferriss, famous entrepreneurial author of the Four Hour Work Week. Nearly three months ago I made a big life change from being a national parks tour guide to an entrepreneur. I’m still an outdoor granola, but I’ve decided to shift my outlook to live life on my terms.  Now I’m engaged in marketing and being a car salesman for Honda and the plan is using that money to invest. In Southern Utah, I’ve picked a job that involves more risk, more money, more freedom, and an opportunity to allow me to invest in other small business adventures on the side.

Last June, I looked at different Marketing strategies. That’s right, Internet Marketing, Referral Marketing, being an affiliate and the list goes on. All this information has been a gold mine. I want to experiment and be a highly productive human with the ability to get things done swiftly and quick. Life is too short to sit in an office burning daylight. I thank Tim Ferris for this inspiration. This is the golden chance sky rocket my personal output and productivity to shoot for the stars. I’m already at  the top.

The biggest secret that set me on this beautiful path was a simple change of attitude. It was the ignition switch that I needed to fire up my dreams for life and being happy. I started to realize the beauty of this internal change first-hand when I noticed that more and more people wanted to befriend me and pick my brain. I got a dream job that I’ve always wanted and I’m planning to invest this knowledge across the board. So this is a work-in-progress.

I could write about this drastic change forever but I’ve got a slew of resources, secrets, tips, knowledge, photographic tips, you name it… I want to impart all this information, because I have lived the reality of a Four Hour Work Week. For seven years I’ve been a tour guide traveling all over the Southwest. I lived in the Grand Canyon and met people from all over the world. During this whole experience, I have mastered learned photography and Interpretation. Every day people have give me great feedback on my images.

So sit back, relax, and think about making a drastic change. Trust me, It’s well worth it wherever you be in life! I’d say 99% of all success hinges on this simple attitude change and I plan on becoming the one percenter. Yeah, I know that’s not a word. I want to leave you with a few words by Tim Ferris that really motivate me…

“If you don’t pursue the things that excite you, where will you be in one year, five years, and ten years? How will you feel having allowed circumstance to impose itself upon you and having allowed ten more years of your finite life to pass doing what you know will not fulfill you?”

Now is the time to become what you’ve always wanted to be. The time is asap. Don’t wait and put off whatever can be done to get you on your way, moving across the great divide that land locks everyone else. This change starts in the mind and grows in the imagination. It starts with action. You’re biggest risk is doing nothing. Think about it? The choices you make now ripple into your future. Inaction is your worst enemy.
