Support the love of skating, and any new avenue to do so. Just my 2 cents is all.

Along the way you meet some great kids with these attributes personified. One young man(13 yrs old) that has quietly impressed and goes on without one ounce of ego, is Damiani Castro. This young man has been sitting at the top of the IBJJF rankings for 2 years straight now. Every other competition he does in Florida are against 15 and 16 year old teens(remember he only 13) and winning them. Not only winning, but with respect for the other competitors and the sport. While he is currently an orange belt under Professor Cris, you can imagine that green will be in his grasp as he continues to to own the mat, straight A grades in school, and represent himself and school with his humbled professionalism.
You can only imagine how much more untouchable his ranking would be if the IBJJF did a couple of tournaments in Florida. Until that day, do yourself a favor and hit a tournament in Tampa and watch a future leader in the sport of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and now he's adding Judo to his game. You won't be disappointed in his matches or the young man you will meet.

You're not better than me and I'm not better than you.
People need to stop being assholes to everyone around them because they woke up with a burr up their ass.
Our government has created an entire society of paranoid, greed filled, self destructive people....and watching that world burn for entertainment.
Rational thinking seems to be a part of a deluxe package people didn't sign up for.
Nobody cares about your public displays for attention seeking, when posting your sob story/drama on FB....PM that shit to your friends. Or get a damn therapist.
Quit crying broke and posting your ass getting wasted, buying new shit, getting new ink, or feeding another vice. Quit your vices and save money. You obviously don't know broke.
Smile to someone, make their day a touch brighter for that second. It didn't cost you anything.
Pay kindness forward, WITHOUT asking for a thing in return. Stop looking for an edge or advantage.
Spend positive quality time with your kids, they are more important than your social life.
If you don't like someone on social networking, quit being a douche bag keyboard warrior.... stop bloody following them and move on!!
Assault weapons are for socially weak and inept. Learn there are other ways to handle conflict.
To be continued. .... enjoy? Lol

I love reviewing the little guys and helping spread the word on them. When the product is good and driven with passion, I WANT to help spread the word. I'm not huge with a ton of followers on the blog, but it's decent and it's a starting point.
I do want to do the reviews differently now. Not only review the products, but a little back story on the company and people behind it. Helps people get to know that there's more to the item and actually develop a connection with the story. In 20+ years of sales, that emotional connection creates a loyal buyer back for more and word of mouth.
I do this stuff, because as an old dog in this industry, I've seen the marketing game become as dominant and influential as ever before. Creates a HUGE hill to climb for the guy starting out. I wanted to take my retail knowledge and skate experience and help shrink the gap in any way I can.
