Heroes & 
Role Models

This site is the definition of a work-in-progress.  I can’t make up my mind whether to focus on the writing or the designing.  I guess it doesn’t matter.  The daily content challenge marches on.

What You’ll Find Here

For the time being, this site is mostly just a data dump.  Over time, it may become more useful to the outside observer.  Who knows?

My Own Research

I am the definition of a know-it-all.  Hopefully, someone else can use that to their advantage.  These pages are to cataloging my learnings.

Opinions of Same

I am a master of unsolicited advice.  Frankly, it’s annoying.  An outlet for self-expression, I hope this site will help me become a better listener.

Video Breakdowns

I consume hundreds of hours of video training, keynotes, and other education content.  Timestamping content helps me learn and teach others.

G.O.A.T. Rank – My Top Teachers

01

Gary Vee

Gary Vaynerchuk is the first man the adult me could acknowledge as a “hero.”  Without Gary Vee, my hero profiles might not even exist.  Certainly, the whole idea of a G.O.A.T. Rank is a tribute to my admiration for him.

02

Vishen Lakhiani

Vishen may be the man I look up to more than any other.  His mission of education reform may be the most important of any of my heroes.  Over the long-term he may be the favorite for the top spot.

03

Naruto Uzumaki

Naruto is the most inspiring character I’ve ever come across.  What I’ve learned from him is unique.  And yet, his story seems inevitable, almost perfect.  Watching Naruto, I felt as if it was written from my own heart.

04

Brian Johnson

To this point, I might have learned more from Brian Johnson than any other person on the planet.  He has created a library of classic and modern teachings on becoming the best you and living your best life.

05

Brendon Burchard

Brendon Burchard is one of the world’s leading high performance coaches.  Before I met Gary Vee, I filled my house with Brendon’s voice almost everyday.  His content was the first I used to brainwash myself.

06

Nahko bear

Nahko is probably my favorite musician today.  I use his music to heal and connect with my highest self.  There are others I use in the same way.  Yet much Naruto’s story, Nahko’s music often feels written just for me.

07

Tom Bilyeu

Tom is one of the dark horses for top spot over the long term.  Similar to Vishen, much of that has to do with the weight of his mission.  He wants to “break people out of the Matrix” through entertainment.  Smart and strong.

08

Les Brown

Much like Brendon Burchard, Les Brown’s voice has filled my home on many occasions.  He is a staple of many of the best moticuts.  There is true power in his words—and the personal stories those words invoke.

09

David Goggins

David Goggins may be the most inspiring person on the planet today.  He’s definitely in the running for toughest.  This man sets an example few could truly follow but almost anyone could learn from.

10

Grant Cardone

Grant Cardone makes this list because he is one of the most important voices for financial freedom on the planet today.  This makes him another dark horse for my top five over the long-term.  After all, money is hard.

Lifelong Learner

The voices of my heroes fill my life.

Eventually, I hope that their presence does as well.

My ability to make that happen depends largely on my application of their teachings.  I thirst for knowledge.  I consume it in all forms and across various topics.

That’s how I became an elite Internet marketer.

Thanks to the Internet Era, digital marketing won’t be the last topic I master.
