What is the most complex thing you’ve had to do?

The most complex thing I’ve had to do in my life is exactly that. My life. I started life in foster care. I didn’t know how to navigate the world I had to figure it out. I was then adopted by two great supportive and loving parents. Who taught me to ensure I’m always the best version of myself. Taught me the importance of hard work not just in the traditional sense but in everything I do. Then at the age of 19 they died in a car accident. Both of them. While I was in the military mind you. So again a very complex situation where now I have no life-line, no support system, nobody. I have to figure it out. It gave me the reality of wherever I was in my life was up to me. If I wasn’t satisfied it was my fault. I know the changes I could make and I made them. I had to navigate Heartbreak, Becoming an orphan once again, how to go about achieving a life I wanted without any help; on my own, achieving success and re-learning who I was at my core having to remind myself of who I am after becoming someone I didn’t like, nonetheless always making the changes never allowing the negative to hold onto me for too long. All of this was extremely complex but ultimately led time to my destination of where I am now. I love where I’m at, and who I see looking back at me in the mirror. If I’ve done all this so far? Came this great distance in this amount of time. I cant even imagine what further greatness is in store for the rest of my life. Whatever i’m sure the journey there will be just as complex if not more so. I accept that challenge with excitement.

What is the most outstanding achievement you’ve ever accomplished?

The most outstanding achievement I have to date is who I am now. As a business man and as a man. I am the best version of myself each and every day. I wake up in better shape physically each and every day, I wake up with more money in my bank account then they day prior. What I’ve been able to accomplish despite my hardships I’ve had in the past is my greatest accomplishment. The fact that you could never imagine the trauma I’ve endured in my life because of my results. Because of how I carry myself. Because of who I am. I’m the best achievement I have to date. Me.

What are your long-term goals?

My long term goal is to achieve as long of a line of generational wealth I possibly can. I want my family to see a picture of me and say it all started with your great great great great… grandpa Rowley. How many Greats deep can I go? I can’t fathom but I’m excited to find out.

What is the biggest mistake you have made within your career?

Biggest mistake I’ve made in my career was setting limitations on myself. We as humans are the most adaptable and resilient creatures in existence. I am disgusted that I ever gave into excuses ever. Once I made that change within myself my life changed dramatically in business and in life.

What is one message that you would like to give the world?

One message I’d like to give the world is to do the right thing and to be extremely selfish when it comes to your own success. When I say do the right thing I mean think about what your goals are, and when I say goals I mean your dream. The one that someone in your life or multiple people told you was unrealistic and you eventually listened to them. What is that goal? Identify it. Now do the right thing to achieve that goal because if you really wanted it you’d be doing it. You want more money? Start figuring out how to acquire it! Stop wasting your time binge watching Netflix and start figuring out how to put more money in your bank account. Imagine if you’d spent all the time you’ve spent watching tv or Netflix or YouTube and spent it learning to invest and have your money work for you. If that’s your goal. You want to get in shape? Stop asking people what workouts they recommend or diets to follow. Everyone knows how to get in shape. Eat healthy and go to the gym. Do the basics then you can start doing the fine tuning. Whatever your goal may be, you know what the right thing is to achieve that and what’s not. Is eating honey buns, Oreos and other junk going to get me closer to being in shape? No. Is sitting watching Netflix going to put money in my bank account? No. In fact both these things not only keep you from achieving your goal but take away from it! Netflix costs money, Honey buns and Oreos will only drive you further from the physique you want. Of course those are just two examples off the top of my head but you know what I mean. Again. Do the right thing. Go look in the mirror and have an honest conversation. You know what it is. Now do it.

Where do you see yourself in the next ten years?

In the next ten years I’ve achieved a billionaire status and I’ve had a major impact on a mass number of society as a whole, for the better.

If you could take back one thing you did wrong, what would it be and why?

If I could take back something I‘ve done wrong it definitely would be eating my feelings. At this point in my life it slid me into a depressed state and this lowered my confidence and production and put me in a dark spot. Eventually affected all areas of my life. I would change this if I could because I know that I could’ve produced more and offered more as a man to those around me at the time had the change been made sooner rather than later.
