Today was a good day. I woke up, stretched, drank some pre-workout and got in the gym. After I worked out I ate some avocado toast with bacon on it. YUM! We are currently 9 days out from something that I'm very excited about... a trip around America! My girlfriend Caitlin and I are taking our RV to every state in America. Monday, March 15 we will leave San Jose, California and head to out first destination: Phoenix, Arizona.
This is not just an ordinary trip. We're calling this trip the US Gains Tour and while we're traveling around America, we'll be promoting my business, Battle of the Gains. It's our mission to help people make gains in life and overcome all their battles in life. We'll be doing 5 minute YouTube shows where we interview people in each state, go to the state capital, talk to someone from the local chamber of commerce and try the best food in each state. Did you know that the most famous food in California was the avocado?
This is a trip I've wanted to do for a few years now. It's pretty cool to see how it all came together because I was going to do the trip solo a few years ago IN MY CAR and now I get to do it with my beautiful girlfriend in a really nice RV AND it's the perfect time for America to hear about Battle of the Gains and our mission with everything that happened in 2020 with Covid-19.
To prepare for the trip, I've been updating my website (www.battleofthegains.com),cleaning up all my social media channels (Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, Twitter, YouTube, Snapchat and TikTok), I've been putting together lists of local chamber of commerces and local news stations as well as investing a lot into new cameras, computers, microphones, lighting, apparel and everything else so that while we're traveling we can have the best equipment to create some awesome content. Who knows? Maybe after this trip, we can turn all of this into a Netflix movie!
Speaking of movies, I spoke with my good friends at Ingalls Pictures today (www.IngallsPictures.com). Hugh and his brother Ned and father Pete called me to ask about how the US Gains Tour was coming together and I told them everything I'm telling you guys right now. I mentioned about the Netflix idea and Hugh told me that he just took a course on how to pitch movies to Netflix. This is not something too new to me as I wrote a book several years ago (On The Rebound) and went to New York City in 2019 to pitch the book to Hollywood producers, Netflix and Amazon executives. Hugh said that Netflix is looking for 2 things when it comes to new movies on their platform: highs stakes and big characters.
What I'm most excited about with everything we're working on right now is this new ambassadorship program I built for Battle of the Gains called 'World Changers.' The concept is to create a platform where Gains Ambassadors can connect with each other, learn from each other and inspire each other to make Gains every day. We're talking gains physically, mentally, spiritually, financially and with relationships. Our goal is to stop the rising rates of depression, anxiety, suicide and homicide. We have about 10 World Changers signed up so far. Most of them are from Michigan where I'm from but I also have a few in California, Florida and Colorado. You can sign up as a World Changer for free at www.battleofthegains.com and join our community of people that want to change the world.
I journaled just like this since 2015 - but I want to start putting my daily journals online for people to read each day. This is going to be a really exciting next few months as we travel America and meet people in every region of the country. My hope is that we can show America that we're not that different after all and we all want the same thing which is to live a good quality life and be happy. Stay tuned for future journals and I look forward to seeing you all in our new World Changers program. Have a great day!
