Scott Dinsmore, the founder of the Live Your Legend movement passed away on Mt. Kilimanjaro earlier this month.
Words cannot express how I felt when this news hit. Emotions poured through my mind like a rushing waterfall and work that did not matter came to an abrupt hault.
The worst career advice ever - "Do not worry about the work you are doing right now, just worry about building your resume." - Scott Dinsmore
All together different advice - "Taking jobs to build up your resume is the same as saving up sex for old age." - Warren Buffet
80% of people do not enjoy their work.
Scott was one of those people that influenced my life beyond measure. The online toolset that he and his team at LYL created are exactly what one needs to profoundly change the trajectory of life. I am grateful to say that with the help of Scott and LYL I am living my passions every single day and it is helping others do the same.
Scott and the LYL community influenced many things in my life over the past few years including:
These experiences have created a ripple effect that impacts everyone I engage with, likely including you.
Again, thank you Scott and LYL. I would not be living with the burning passion I am today if it was not for you.
Start living your passion today. Why wait for old age?

Last night it rained. ☔
This morning I awoke in a natural water bed and immediately proceeded to laugh at myself, pack my crap up and drive into my first snow ❄storm experience of the year.
Nature never ceases to enlighten me.
Stoked to be home. 🗻🌎
The most energizing moment each day is when life is awoken by the warmth of light. Your eyes crack open just to see if what you feel is real. To see what today might bring. Opportunity awaits.
It waits long for no one, but is here for everyone. All you have to do is wake up, suit up, show up and move. Take a step forward, wake up to the opportunity that sits right before your eyes.
"Over analysis will surely result in paralysis."
Don't sleep some nights so you can experience the beauty that thrives 24 hours a day.
Climb a mountain at 12am just because there is fresh snow and a sunrise on it's way.
Do something and if you fail then learn from it and move on. Always move on ^^^
Live an inspired life for you will always have something to live for.
I live outside.
Many would think that my decision has been driven by financial constrants. They are wrong. I have a great job at G5 that pays me well. I have more than enough $ to fund my expenses, travels and monthly rent, but long for something different than the average lifestyle filled with comfort, luxury and amenities.
I chose to live outside because it is where I am truly the happiest. And, Iv'e come to realize there is something magical about making the most out of the least. When you open your eyes and look around resources are abundant, yet so scarce. It is weird, but the more material I get in my life the more I want to make more out of less. I suppose this mentality has largely been driven by Entrepreneurship, being an Eagle Scout and a career in Digital Marketing. You could say that Optimzation is at my heart.
Some questions I continually ask myself - Is there a better way of being and doing? How can I do the same thing for less money? How can I clean my dishes with less water? How can I do everything with less water? What will this world be like when it does not snow anymore? Will I regret not having spent more time in the mountains when I am 100 years old?
These questions drive me. They drove me to wake up in the mountains more days than not. They drive me to be a better leader, marketer, community member and outdoor enthusiast. The most important thing - They keep me driving forward.
To answer the question - Why do you live outside? --- I want to.
This post is part of a multi-month series. This is just the beginning of something great. The category is life outside.
Some post topics that are coming - How Does Scott and How Could YOU ----
And, so much more!
Family vacation this year was simply awesome.
We drove to the the Owhyhee Canyon Lands area and it was truly a trip back in time. The old wagon roads that provide access to this magical place were built in the 1800's. The rattlesnakes were everywhere. The hot springs were clean and beautiful. The praries were breathtaking. The experience was unreal. I will be back again.
