Re: Grinding + Getting Fit + Crushing Biz from Awesome San Diego

Crazy to see the Katrina aftermath! Have you had any of the great food that tourists and locals rave about? How about any skanks walking around Bourbon St?!? Anyway, hope you're enjoying it!

Re: Grinding + Getting Fit + Crushing Biz from Awesome San Diego

Yeah is crazy to see it nine years later. I still can't believe that happened in the US.

I basically feel like Im in a different country as its so unique here versus anywhere else in the US.

I havent had any of the food yet as Im a picky eater and have been eating like a lamo since Ive been here but tomorrow I may expand my palate a little as will in the French Quarter most of the day and night.

Saw a bunch of girls hanging outside the strip joints, but didnt go in, not sure what will happen tomorrow night as its my the only night Ill be partying in NOLA before I leave. Kinda want to avoid that type of sketchy world, but sometimes sketch happens when u least expect it.

Tonight I went to a Mexican bar to eat, drink a few and play some pool. There was only like ten people in the place but when I walked in it was like the music stopped and everyone was staring at me as its a Latin place and dont think a lot of gringos visit. I nailed my ordering in Spanish and it was fun hanging there versus the rock and roll bar next door which was full of obnoxious peps getting bombed and going crazy.

The H jersey is Honduras, which is a very important country to me. My tech team is based out of this country and also a few other key long term members who are critical. If I hit my benchmarks, I really need to get to Hondo for a few weeks to get some face to face time in and enjoy the awesome party and nature on the North Coast.



Had the table and backroom to myself.



This is a baleada, a Honduran handheld snack of awesomeness. The perfect drinking food.



Pumped for tomorrow. Meeting a PG & Cer that I've followed for over a year and have a lot in common. Also plan on getting pretty dammed ripped tomorrow. Its good Im a calm drunk that doesn't do anything stupid, unless Im by myself and chaos can happen, but think Ill be fine tomorrow with my friends.

Re: Grinding + Getting Fit + Crushing Biz from Awesome San Diego

Good night sleep and got a 4 AM show for a few minutes and then woke up at around 9. Smoked the last of the stuff I bought and feel great. Ill be fine for a few hours and I plan to start drinking around 1 PM. Have both a personal and business meeting, but they are friendly so as far as Im concerned Im drinking through both.

Went for a walk. I came across Xavier University which is a small black school which Im pretty sure I've bet games on in the past for basketball, probably losing those bets. Its small campus but cool walk as I love going onto universities. My dad was a college professor in an experiential learning program and I grew up traveling with classes my entire childhood and just feel like home at schools. One thing I liked about teaching is being on a campus as there is a lot of things going on especially if you coach and get involved with other things.











Saw this sign on a club on the way home and got me thinking.

I wish the casinos were 21 when they launched in the suburbs of Chicago in the early 90s. I was a casino junky at 18 and ****ed my $ up very young. I always had money as I worked and also was in the Army Reserves which gave me the GI Bill and a monthly check for the weekend drills. I was a high roller in university as everyone was broke and I had budget for fun for almost 2K a month which seemed liked a fortune back then. I was a fool and partied, gambled and blew it all on girls. Nothing has really changed besides Im not practicing those things at this moment but trying to make some special happen so I can do all three of those things with cool ass peps all over the world and have some of my other people protect what I've built and not self-destruct or spew it all.

The Xavier (college basketball) you probably bet on is located in Cincinnati.

Re: Grinding + Getting Fit + Crushing Biz from Awesome San Diego

Lol, WiCane, now its clear why I suck at sports betting .

Had a nice day down near the French Quarter. The place is going to be packed tonight for St. Paddy's Day. Took a few hour nap and will be ready to go soon.

Harrahs tables looked juicy and were filling up, my goal of not playing and a few poker players I've been talking with helped me stay off for sure. This trip can be a great victory if I step off landmines and I just need to enjoy NOLA for all it is and have a fun time without much degening for the next 48 hours.

Re: Grinding + Getting Fit + Crushing Biz from Awesome San Diego

Ate lunch at the Manning's which is a cool restaurant owned by the trio of quarterbacks.













I'd love to watch a game in the seats in front of the big screens.

Clear my diet has gone to crap, but have been getting a lot of walking in.

I'd love to add having a little party in Archie's room with a bunch of 420 Nurses and with poker peps to celebrate in the future to the goal list but have a lot of work still to get that bold .

Re: Grinding + Getting Fit + Crushing Biz from Awesome San Diego

haha, I walked into that one, last one for at least a month!

Was fun down on Bourbon street for a few hours. Is around midnight and we called it a night.

I discovered that my phone has a video function, which is actually right next to button to click for a pic so it was there in front of me the whole time, lol.

What is the easiest way to embed videos? I got a few minutes of the craziness down there. Photobucket is taking forever to upload. Is putting on You Tube and linking the best way?

Re: Grinding + Getting Fit + Crushing Biz from Awesome San Diego

Yesterday was a tourist day hanging out with my friends family. Went to a cemetery, some lake and a massive park.



I don't really want a grave, but if I did I hope someone would put a bong
on it like this beer bottle.





Love this sign about being nice...




Ill put some more pictures up before I leave for Denver tonight.

My expectations of New Orleans have been blown away. I'd love to come back again, but spend more time for sure.

I also have entered into a massively positive business upswing. My closing rate is at 100% and Im adding an average of a person a day. I need to be careful as adding one dbag could be very damaging so I tread lightly, but must make decisions from my gut that could have big impacts or consequences.

When I get back to SD I have some serious things going down very quickly so this week should be very interesting. I really need to be at a desk for a good week or two as Im entering a nitty-gitty period. I'm under a 90 day snap-count to enter a stage that I either have success or failure. I prefer the first option and will do everything possible to make it happen. Looking forward to getting to this period of time and I can see if my vision was correct or if I have been wandering around for 16 months on a false journey.

I may be heading down to Baja for a few days when I get back to take care of something urgent, but not sure yet.

Reloaded late last night with a few joints which was great news .

Re: Grinding + Getting Fit + Crushing Biz from Awesome San Diego

Loving this two slot casino in a burger shack.



City Park







Some local pastry that was so good.



Off to Denver for the night. My friend is in the 420 business. He got in many years ago as a grower when it was only med. It will be interesting to hear how his business is doing since it was legalized, I think he took a bad hit as the market totally changed and he is not that big.

Im starting to revamp up my work flow. Im going into full model hunting mode. Im meeting one this weekend and the following weekend Im going to a 420nurses party and it looks like its just me and 15 or so girls . If all goes well I should then be making a trip up to their HQ in early April. Looking like a nice month of work coming up .

Re: Grinding + Getting Fit + Crushing Biz from Awesome San Diego

In Denver for the night. Need to get to the airport at 5 AM, but it was worth the stop. It was great to see Two-Wheel J a guy I spent a lot of time with on the North Coast riding around and also partied in Medellin for a epic week. He is doing great and business is good. Prices dropped big time and he just pumped up the volume. All legal and he works like 25 hours a week and lives a nice life.

I for sure came to the right house.

Can't wait to get back to San Diego for at least a night.

Re: Grinding + Getting Fit + Crushing Biz from Awesome San Diego

**** man, I smoked till like 2 AM non-stop and had to wake up at 430 to get to the airport.

I took Uber to his house and it was 40 but used 20 dollar coupon and then Lyft back and it was 57 with a 20 dollar coupon. Not sure if time means anything, but wtf **** is Uber 17 dollars cheaper for the same distance? Anyway, first time Ive used these services and they are convenient as hell and so easy, so not bad.

Glad I stopped in Denver, for sure worth it and can't wait to get back for a longer stay leaving time to check out the 420 industry more.

My goal is to just make it home and close the books on this trip and get some rest. I have two back to back three night stays booked for Airnb starting tomorrow and want to get the ball rolling on that to get the reviews and I can use the 500 - 600 Ill clear from this. Pretty sure Im going to Mexico as its cheap and I need to see someone but not sure if TJ, Rosa or Ensenada.

Re: Grinding + Getting Fit + Crushing Biz from Awesome San Diego

I was exhausted today, making bad sleep choices, but made it back ok and got some sleep in the day. I just piled on sleep deprivation over a week period. going to go to sleep early tonight and start fresh tomorrow. I have a lot of work to do to prepare my place for the Airnb people, but Im glad Im doing it as I want that pipeline set-up and Im just going to take a week vacation in Mexico with one day back in SD for biz on Saturday.

Re: Grinding + Getting Fit + Crushing Biz from Awesome San Diego

Yesterday was a struggle, but I pushed through and by the end of the day I felt really positive. I still didnt get enough sleep, but I made a correct mental adjustment that I feel will allow me to get through my present challenges. I have so much to do to get my apartment ready, like clean and go to the store. While I work a lot on my business, I really havent done any real work and I dont like being under the time gun to get things done. It will be worth it and then I will be taking two days off in Mexico to rest, but I still need to work 5 hours or so each day. I really need to set up a desk and have wifi that is good enough to grind You Tube. I then will come back for a day of business on Saturday and most likely return to Mexico for three more days. I will block off my Airnb for most of next week as I really need to be in my place at my command station as I have a few productions being tied up.

My tech guy has started to build and this is an important first step. I need a new business platform and Im lucky to have a tech crew that can make something interactive, functional and visually appealing on a very low budget. The time is the only issue as they have other projects but the COO has cleared a time slot for me. They are Latin so slowness is always an issue, but I will be lighting fires under their butts with a little cash bonus incentive for on-time work.

Its like 6 AM and just need to focus on knocking off a huge list. I ****ing hate to clean, but I will save 50 bucks on each renter and that could add-up so I may as will increase my profits by doing it myself for the time being.

I hope to be in Vegas for upwards of three weeks at the beginning of WSOP so it will be nice to have the apartment getting reviews going so I can book it easier. I could also do a Vegas-San Diego swap with poker players as my location is highly desired and my place is much better than a hotel unless u are high baller.

Re: Grinding + Getting Fit + Crushing Biz from Awesome San Diego

Yesterday was another rough day but I pushed through it. Cleaned all day and was running around buying stuff for my place. I invested a couple hundred bucks in things for my place. I only need a few beach cruisers for my guests and I think Ill be set. My first people were a really nice university couple. I hope they dont have a party and my **** dont get jacked. Ill die if my lazy boy disappears.

I came down to TJ at like 8 PM n I was so tired. I once again got lost even after my GPS was loaded up with a hotel. I ended up getting a room at a nice love motel for 20 bucks, lol. Its actually one of the nicer places Ive stayed on my recent journey, but not to hip on sleeping on a bed that is probably a 24/7 **** station.

My sleep patterns are all jacked up as I went to sleep at 9 without eating and woke up at 4 AM. My goal the next two days is to regulate and find a balance.

Re: Grinding + Getting Fit + Crushing Biz from Awesome San Diego

Hey RF,
It's been a while man.
If you are hosting for airbnb just use a closet or something to store your valuables and lock them up. You never know with the guests and especially the young ones with not many reviews. Always better to be careful.
So finally got to San Diego and real busy with apartment hunting and etc. Airbnbing for the first month, loving the city and weather so far! Very chill city.

Enjoy ur time in Tijuana.

Re: Grinding + Getting Fit + Crushing Biz from Awesome San Diego

Hey 87!

Glad to hear you're in SD, that was fast. Glad your liking the city so far, its a special place, I cant wait next week when I stop traveling and Im back home to explore some more.

Lets hook up and blaze when you have free time in a week or two .

I took my valuables with me but the concern is if they back a truck up and take all my ****. The two parties I have in this week are verified and have great feedback from other stays so Im sure Im alright.

I really want to find a new place, but this room is decent with good wifi. The downside is its on the fifth floor with no elevator and is like an semi-industrial area and kinda nasty outside. Another upside is I really can't get into much trouble. No casinos, bars, or other things that could lead to some sort of degen. Im really happy Ive stuck to my non-gambling goal this month and have been very calm but the demon lurks and Im really anxious right now as Im ready to make moves, but still waiting to get people into place, but it looks like they are on the way and just need to be patient. The time to rest is now and need to take advantage of the calm before the storm.

I will decide by checkout at noon if I try to find this other hotel by the river that Ive gotten lost twice trying to find. Should be lot easier in the day and more rested.

Re: Grinding + Getting Fit + Crushing Biz from Awesome San Diego

I ended up staying in this hotel as to lazy to move. I kinda like it here as there is no one else around me and I can rest in peace, the only part that sucks is taking the stairs so many flights.

Yesterday I did nothing but sleep and lay in bed. I was in bad shape. Headaches, slight fever, body pains and major coughing. I feel much better today and will rest once again and hope to be close to 100% by tomorrow. Reviewing back, I was up two nights in NOLA with only a few hours sleep and also up all night when I went to Denver. Three nights of almost total lost sleep is to much for any 42 year old to handle and I need to knock that chit off.

One more day here and back to SD for a day for a model meeting and to get the next guests in.

This AirBnB thing seems pretty awesome, I wish I knew more about it when I was traveling a ton. When does the first couple leave your place, I'm really curious on how it went! Hope all is well, stay away from El Tigre in TJ!

Yah it pretty cool, will check it out when I travel from now. The first couple leave at 11 and the next one checks in at 4. Gives me time to clean and also meet up with a model in PB . I then will come back to TJ, hopefully not feeling like chit like I have been the last few days. My back was hurting bad this morning and was worried but it cleared up and just fighting the cold and cough.

Yo Dog, I have some fun, but the stress of the biz, $ and dealing with what many consider "difficult to communicate with people" (poker players, models, a few other groups of peps) is draining, but I made my own bed and will see this through. One day if successful and Im surrounded by the awesome peps and 420nurses, it will be a lot of fun for sure

haha on your bro, Ill look for him streaking down by the beach!!

For sure will blaze it and have a J in your name if you ever escape the cold of OH.

Im not a big beer drinker but I hear some of the best beer in the world comes from San Diego, supposed to be a microbrew paradise.

Yeah for sure RF,
I got a question for you.
do I need proof of residency for a medical card here? Is it possible to use my temp airbnb address for application or should I wait until I sign a lease?

Thanks!

Re: Grinding + Getting Fit + Crushing Biz from Awesome San Diego

Hey man, I'm pretty sure u can get with temp address as a lot temporary foreign students get the card. Its so easy the doctors just want to work in volume. If u can't figure out maybe I could help u next week. Hope u can get it fast as that is must needed!

I haven't smoke in two days n I've walked into a total nightmare. I backslid in the night n woke with a massive fever, complete conjestion, n a little vertigo. I came bac 2 SD to check out my first guests which went well n meet the Latin model. She is cool more of a cute university type, n really positive. I asked tons of questions about her type of modeling n I'll see her on saturday at a 420nurse get together. Over 20 girls, but many bring their boyfriends, n a lot of blazing n networking go on.

I'm waiting for my next guests n I really want to cancel n just b in my place for many days but dat would b lame so I push through n decide tonight if I go to Mexico or my parents house two hours away for safety n to just stay till I recover. I'm almost at a point where I need a doctor n I can do it there as I have one in their town.

Lots of lessons learned n have stopped making decisions unless about my health at this point.

Thanks RF,
Yeah the withdrawal can really be a *****. Insomnia sweating unable to eat much etc. Are you being prescribed for a serious medical condition or is it just withdrawals?
How you get better soon.
