Drastic Life Changes – Work in Progress


We live in a free market capitalist society and I went to college with all the Marxists, Socialists and Commies! Four years ago, I should have went into Business & Marketing instead of Sociology. It goes to explain why I was once very liberal in my politics and it wasn’t until the last few years that I’ve began to see the light and head over to the right!

My politics have shifted, totally. About eleven months ago I became a full-fledged supporter of Ron Paul, and his son Rand Paul, who are both Tea-Party congressmen. I’ve discovered myself to be a deep Libertarian. I believe in personal liberty and think that sovereign power should reside within the heart of every human being, and not in the power-hungry US Federal Government. We as American Citizens put too much blind faith in government and in the process of doing that, we as citizens have started to forfeit our personal liberties, sovereignty and responsibility to the government. People are beginning to think that it’s the government’s duty to pamper us, and take care of us. What the heck?

I’m not wanting to wax to political on here, because that’s not why I created this blog. I’ve created this blog because of my new-found hero, Tim Ferris, who operates the Four Four Blog and is a New York Best Seller, and writer. He’s becoming my muse this very moment when I’ve been needing something like this for a very long time. I feel like I’ve crawled out of a cacoon in recent weeks. This guy has become an example of human freedom, and what a person can achieve when they believe in themselves and have a required confidence to act and MOVE.

So, that’s what this blog is about. Let me tell you what I am about – I love people and wish to share my life experiences. For six years now, I’ve been a professional tour guide, taking people in the wilderness, into the Grand Canyon and all over the Southwest. I’ve spent my waking hours learning the art of photography and I’m constantly driven by the beauty of the Earth.

So this blog is apart of my newfound freedom. It’s what Tim Ferris calls Experiments in Lifestyle Design. It’s what I call discovering my own innate sovereignty and what it means to be human.

Life is a Test – So Change Your Attitude


Believe it or not, your life is a short test full of meaning. How you spend you’re waking hours is determined by your attitude. If you waste your time on this Earth it becomes the ultimate tragedy. You’re value and mission in life is priceless. Do not abuse the time the Creator has given you on this beautiful planet.

I refuse to sit idly by and burn daylight. So I’m bootstrapping myself and getting to work and learning to think outside the box. The formation of Desert Rat Executive is going to be personally life-altering because it’s the beginning of a long journey to reinvent myself and my outlook on life. It’s going to involve building myself financially as well as creatively. I’m an artist, adventurer, photographer, and ultimately an entrepreneur. See this as the largest change coming into my life. It is one big undertaking.

You are the master and commander of your own destiny. Seek to find the most beautiful secrets that life has to offer. Give thanks to the Creator every day for the ability to be happy, faithful and hopeful. This is my creative growth and a new first milestone to building something great, unforeseen and what will seem to most to be an impossible endeavor. This vision is passion driven.

Stay tuned!
