I just got out of a wild goose chase at Menard's for sockets for my grow lights but came up empty and brought home another grow rack that will fit in the closet and triple our production in that area up to 21 tray spaces💡🌱💡🌱💡. I also talk about my plans for cleaning up the garden & how to prune raspberry bushes. I cant wait to get growing and put everything I have into the garden this year. Organization and efficiency is at the heart of my mission this year - mix that with passion & hard work and you have a recipe for success!
I found, I mean MADE, time for this quick podcast on my way home from lunch. Start off talking about my weight lifting plans, how I fit working out into my schedule, and why "finding time" is just an excuse to not execute. Enjoy!
This is the first podcast I've ever done with another person & who better than my lifelong friend Tyler Gutman, aka Romo Loco. On the podcast we begin by talking about the Origin stories of our names, both "Romo Loco" & "Gardening 4 Gains", then we talk more in-depth about gardening, permaculture, and Tyler's journey into the jungles of the Amazon.
For this being our first attempt, I feel like we really got into a groove, went off on tangents in every possible direction with topics ranging from bodybuilding, fitness, nutrition, the "ideal" health, and politics.
Would love to hear your thoughts on the topics we dove into - drop your perspective down below in the comments section!

This was from a video I filmed at the beginning of the year right after I began vlogging. In this podcast I talk about a funny story of taking our dog Basil to the vet, then I go into talking about vlogging. I touch on the challenges & time it takes to adapt and retrain your mind into a different way of thinking. We have been told how bad social media is, but I think that vlogging shows the good that resides in these platforms - and that's exactly what it's all about - Platforms. You have a platform to speak your truths, to tell your life story, and most importantly to me - you have the chance to be the Matriarch or Patriarch of your family tree. When you look back at your family history you may have a few pictures of great-grandparents, but think about the endless amounts of content our great-great-great grandchildren will have from us! If you want to, you can be the start of your digital family tree & hundreds of years from now your ancestors will be tracking you down - you'll be the earliest relative they can find with an overwhelming amount of posts, tweets, videos - whatever you want to create & be remembered by: true Legacy.
Most people forget about their Resolutions in the first 2 weeks of January, but I'm still going strong & working to hold myself accountable to the goals I set for myself!
In this episode I dive into my Resolutions which fell into 5 main categories: Fitness, Nutrition, Economics, Gardening, and Social & Marketing.
Listen in to learn how I lost 12 pounds in 5 weeks including my tips & tactics that play into those other areas that I selected as my Resolution categories.
Did you make resolutions?
How are they going?
What do you want to accomplish in 2019?
This is my biggest issue when it comes to content creation - or anything in life really! Pondering the potential outcomes of your actions is important to assess your impact & relevance, but if you're only thinking - you aren't doing 🤾♂️
In this episode we get back to the goal of beginning the day with positive affirmations & goals by talking about the thing that has been a bottleneck to my content creation slump. Sometimes the only way to move forward - is to move forward. What motivates you to keep doing what you're doing? What lights your 🔥?
They say that you find what you're looking for. I was digging deep on this episode to expose some truths about myself & my perception of reality. Like Happiness - you can search & search all you want, but the fact of the matter is that Happiness isn't something that you find - it's something that you do; something that you create. Enjoy this little piece of my soul - a true rant where I feel that I unleashed a little more than usual. Enjoy & feel free to call into the station with your thoughts 🙏
On this rant I talk about my mission with Gardening 4 Gains, why I podcast, & what gets me up in the morning. I hope you find some value, entertainment, and motivation - would love to hear your thoughts or gardening questions!
At this stage of the game the goal is to keep everything growing! This episode is a quick intro to the benefits of using mycorrizae and how it helps your plants. We'll see the true results in a few weeks when we transplant our seedlings 🌱🌱🌱
Here's my thoughts & plans with social media. I think that social will continue to evolve and change the landscape of the internet in ways we can't even begin to imagine.
As those changes begin to take place, how are you changing your strategy?
How do you utilize social media for your business or personal brand?
You can't plan out your passions - you just have to do. In this rambling rant I talk about that theme along with the importance of finding your own way rather than following a template to live the life you want. I feel like I got dialed in towards the end of the episode - really enjoying this podcasting thing & pushing myself out of my comfort zone. Would love to hear your thoughts & ideas - call into the station or drop me a comment 🙏 ask me any question and I'll rant about it 😂
I'm looking to transition from random podcasts into providing more gardening/growing value & starting it off with tips to start your Tomato seeds 🌱🍅
Comment below with your tomato & gardening questions and your question could be the next podcast! 🙌🎙
In the last week I have started a new job at AM Leonard and couldn't be happier. I really can't believe the amount of support I'm getting & it's making me triple down on my goals - @ work & in the garden of my life 🙏
Who else is doing the 2018 Flip Challenge? I've been loving the progress, struggles, and anticipation for success! Sales is the most fun thing in the world when you make it a game and friendly competition with a higher purpose
I'm so excited for all the changes that Anchor made to improve the look, feel, and function of the app. No more time limits - praise the Lord! The dog walking and podcasting was a little tough but I love the active meditation - and it can only get better over time!
Today I talk about my short hiatus from the podcast 😪 So many of our actions are predicated on feelings we have created in our heads, rather than being based on facts🤔. This keeps us from acting, creating and thriving. Just do it! 🏋️♂️💪🌱
It's insane to hear these stories about people making hundreds of thousands of dollars on eBay by finding deals and reselling, so that's why I'm joining the 2018 Flip Challenge 🤸♂️ - to see if I can too!
What plans do you have in place to safeguard your resolutions & ensure execution of your goals? 🙏
Here's our take @ Gardening 4 Gains - our inspiration, our motivation, our goals, and a plan to make it happen 🌱🏋️♂️
What drives you to do?
What is stopping you?
Along this journey through life, I've struggled to define my passions because of my fears.
This is a little insight into the history of Gardening for Gains & a glimpse of my moonshot goals 🌝🚀
