Today we launched a new website called CelebRoad. We are positioning this website to be the premier online people, model, celebrity resource and community. This is the destination where you will come to read biographies on your favorite people and see their latest video and images. It is already starting to bring in traffic after only being up for 3 days. It is another piece of prime internet real estate that we will continue to build.
In my thirty years of life experience, I have interacted with a wide variety of people. I have trusted relatively few only to greed on their part drive me away from them. Most recently, an individual I who put a lot of trust and faith in, ultimately making a lifetime change to be a part of his operation was consumed by greed. This greed and want of control obscured his view and he could not see the quality of people and opportunity he had around him.
The LA Times published an informative and interesting profile of a highly successful businessman I would like to meet by the name of, A. Jerrold Perenchio.
"Shun idleness. It is a rust that attaches itself to the most brilliant metals."
Always moving forward whether in business or with my body or having fun I shun idleness. Another day of good progress was made in business. Our community sites are coming together as planned and our mobile initiative continues to move forward as we have set forward the timeline to complete build and ultimate soft launch on June 18, 2007.
"Living without reflecting is like eating without digesting" - Marvin Jones
Every day I take a moment to reflect on what I have done and accomplished. You must take a moment in each day to understand what you have done, where you are going and digest the knowledge and experience that you have gained from your day.
Each day I look forward to progression. In upcoming posts, I will reflect on my life and the business, friends and women that I have experienced throughout my 30 years. Some moments great, some moments bad, but that is life!
"Obviously everyone wants to be successful, but I want to be looked back on as being very innovative, very trusted and ethical and ultimately making a big difference in the world."
Sergey Brin, google and innovator extraordinaire.
Sergey has certainly made an enormous difference in the world and his innovation, google, will continue to for many years to come perhaps forever.
I have selected a few quotes that describe my views on progress, struggle and the future and supplied pertinent commentary as to how each applies to me.
"After climbing a great hill, one only finds that there are many more hills to climb. I have taken a moment here to rest, to steal a view of the glorious vista that surrounds me, to look back on the distance I have come. But I can rest only for a moment, for with freedom comes responsibilities, and I dare not linger, for my long walk is not yet ended."
Nelson Mandela, a hero and valiant leader
After an arduous and circuitous route which still has hurdles to scale and obstacles to overcome, I am finally proud to be working in the industry that I have grown to love with a partner that I respect, share similar interests with and learn from everyday. This blog will be very personal in nature. Often times I will reflect on the turbulence that has landed me in the spot where I stand today and the amazing modeling I have had to consistently help settle the storm of life. I have arrived!
