Ripping off the mask


Welcome to this week’s issue of 3 Minute Thursday.

Hey everyone,

Today’s 3 Minute Thursday is going to be different (and long).

I’m going to give a bit of a life update.

I’m not really sure if this is the type of content you’re interested in, but let’s find out.

Some things I’ll cover are:

  • The newsletter
  • Work
  • Real Estate
  • Health & Fitness
  • What the future holds



First, I want to start off with an apology.

I’m sorry I’ve missed sending out 3 Minute Thursdays the last two weeks.

When I first began my creator journey in January of this year, I knew that I wanted to start a newsletter.

I wanted to start a newsletter because I knew that anyone who would take the time to subscribe to it would be because they really cared about my content.

And those are exactly the people I want to connect with the most.

So to the 2,000+ of you who read this newsletter each week, and who support my content, thank you from the bottom of my heart.

You have no idea how much it means to me.



Life has been extremely busy lately.

And being a creator with a full-time job is a grind.

And trust me I know… I’ve been slacking.

For those of you who don’t know, my full-time job is at a blockchain startup called QuickNode.

I joined when we were only 20 people and it’s been a ton of fun.

We’ve grown like crazy, hired over 120 people, and have raised over $100M.

Anyway, this is what “keeps the lights on” so to speak.

So it has to be my main priority (for now).

The tech market has been a bit slow, so work has been a little bit extra stressful lately.


Real Estate

On top of this, I have a few properties in Miami worth a combined $1M+.

I don’t share this to brag, there are people my age and younger doing way better than me.

(We’ll save “better” for another time).

One property is a condo that I live in, and one is a 4 Bedroom house that I recently purchased as an Airbnb investment property.

I share this to be transparent, because that’s why I started my page in the first place.

I have some pretty big goals, and I’m super far from where I want to go.

But I also recognize that there are tons of people out there who would like to get to where I am, and I say this humbly.

Real Estate is a passion of mine, and I could see myself doing it full-time one day.

So I welcome you to ride right along side me in this journey I’m on so we can grow together.


Health & Fitness

Man… where would I be without Health and Fitness?

Lost is the answer.

During the darkest times of my life I’ve leaned into sports and exercise as mental therapy.

I’m not sure what has kicked me into gear lately, but I’ve been in overdrive.

Like guys, I can honestly say I’ve never felt better in my life.

This type of feeling comes with lots of sacrifice and discipline.

I plan to post and talk more about more about my fitness journey, because living a healthy lifestyle is something I think everyone should do.


Where do we go from here?

My day one-ers, you know my thing is Mindset.

It’s what fires me up most.

That said I’ve been doing a ton of reflecting.

And I want people who follow me to really feel like they know me.

So, what do I have to do in order to make that happen?

Well, I think step one would be painting a full picture of who I am.

And I’m way more than just an Instagram account with Twitter screenshots.

So, I’m going to do my best to really show you.

I’ll be sharing more of “Me”.

Expect content around mindset, lifestyle, tech, real estate, and fitness.

You can think of this issue of my newsletter as me getting started.

The best place for us to connect is on my Instagram.

Thank you all so much.
