When I surpassed 70,000 YouTube subscribers, I made an announcement that I was also going to create a video series on cryptocurrencies. Well... here is the first episode! This is a presentation that explains what Bitcoin is in detail. A lot of people think Bitcoin is simply monopoly money or fake money. I'm here to clarify why that can't be further from the truth because everyone is buying it just to get rich without knowing what it is that they're buying. If they don't have any conviction as to … [Read more...] about What is Bitcoin? How does it work? Will it change society?

My first vlog talking about self-worth, perfectionism, fear of failure, imposter syndrome, the dunning kruger effect, and more... was a HUGE hit. I got more comments than ever on YouTube from them. It was actually really cool. And the best part was that it wasn't a complex video where I had to setup a tripod and have an outfit with perfect lighting and sound, with heavy video editing, which I am accustomed to doing. It was simple and real. So now, I just put out another vlog in the same … [Read more...] about How To Use Your Time Wisely
I had an absolutely stunning morning and I have to share it. I don't know why, but I do. Maybe as I write this out it will make sense why I"m sharing it, so here goes. For the past few days I had gotten too enveloped into bitcoin and cryptocurrencies and it was somewhat taking over my life and me getting sucked into the drama in that space not realizing much it sucked me into its world. So I told myself if I wake up early I will go Stand-Up-Paddleboarding (SUP) in the ocean because I have … [Read more...] about The Magic of Yoga on a Stand Up Paddleboard
An awareness outreach is forming to help teach drivers (and passengers) to simply open the door with their other hand to help prevent cyclists from getting doored. Even when we use self-driving cars, this little change in habit is going to be very helpful for preventing cyclists from getting doored! Here's a quick 2 minute video about it I just made: https://youtu.be/lvajgZd7q_I This is such a simple change to implement. It just takes a little bit of awareness to change the habit. I … [Read more...] about The Dutch Reach: To prevent cyclists from getting doored, tell people to open the car door with their opposite hand!
A few days ago a user on r/bodyweightfitness asked for help in regards to them clenching their jaw during exercise because it was causing a lot of tension to the rest of their skull. I ended up making a video-answer showing how I release the tension of my masseter (jaw) muscle using self-massage and shared it on /r/fitness and it blew up in popularity as well. What/Where is the Masseter Muscle? It's technically the most important skeletal muscle in your body because if you can't chew and … [Read more...] about How to Self Massage your Masseter (Jaw) Muscle!

Coming out of a yoga class, I had all these thoughts running amok about my self worth and the irony of how I sabotage myself, always afraid that I'm not good enough and how that paralyzes my creativity. I always want to do my utter best and sometimes I think I take it too far because it prevents me from finishing projects because my creativity will run out for that project and I'll want to move onto the next thing. Trying to find that balance and break through the fear is what I'm trying to do. … [Read more...] about What is YOUR self worth?

I just wanted to take this opportunity to say THANK YOU for helping me reach this milestone! I'll be making more videos related to health/fitness per usual but also starting a new show to help educate people on bitcoin, cryptocurrencies and warning them of things to watch out for... The first episode will probably be a lengthy primer on what is Bitcoin! (That is one of the most challenging things I've ever had to explain but I love challenges!) https://youtu.be/YwR9V2SPfHQ And as a follow … [Read more...] about Celebrating 70,000 YouTube Subscribers!

Earlier this year I had gone to Panama to kitesurf/kiteboard and one day my buddies and I found this desolate beach called Playa Malibu so I capitalized on the opportunity, made up a quick yoga flow, setup my tripod and filmed it. It feels good to finally rummage through the footage, do the voice over, edit it and publish it! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TZrZUJzJEFE This beach was also bizarre because the waves broke exactly like how they do in Malibu, California and it was called … [Read more...] about Intermediate Mini Yoga Flow for the Hips (Twister Edition)
Hey everyone, it's time for something a little different. This blog post is finance-related because that's what I'm feeling to produce right now. For those that don't know me personally, you may be surprised to know that my first college degree was a Bachelors in Business Finance with emphasis on Financial services. I worked for many years as a financial advisor, health & life insurance agent and loan officer until the 2007-2008 World Financial Crisis effectively put me out of a job. That … [Read more...] about How to Get Out of Credit Card Debt
