I Kinda Care


“The opinion of ONE PERSON is as meaningful to me as the opinion of MANY, but it does not mean I will do anything with it.”

- Jared Yellin


Why do you care?

Why does it stop you?

Why does it even matter?


There are a handful of things that make my nose flare…

Where I become visibly frustrated…

And possibly even hostile…


It’s when I speak or meet or hear of someone who uses the excuse of…


I’m not good enough…

I don’t have what it takes…

I am too slow…

Etc.


As the reason they NEVER try…


This happens to be the story of their lives…


Someone, somewhere, someday said SOMETHING that has etched a mark in their lives forever and as a result…


They have a mediocre relationship…

They have mediocre health…

They have mediocre finances…

They have a mediocre career...

They have a mediocre outlook…


And they are darn right mediocre because they have accepted the opinion of ONE to become their own…

Listen, I am human just like you…


And I am also VERY audacious, bold, and loud…


I have always put myself in a position where people feel responsible to spew their opinions of me, my ideas, or my decisions.


And remember, I am human…


I hear them…

I feel them…

What they say matters...only A LITTLE...only SLIGHTLY...only VERY TEMPORARILY!


And remember…


I am no different than you BUT I also don’t truly care about what other people think, yet I do care about what everyone thinks…


What does this mean?!?!


It means BRING IT!


Give me your feedback…

The good, the bad, the ugly…

Try and tear me down…

I want it...

I need it…


And here’s why…


I LOVE when people share how something I do makes them feel because maybe they will open my eyes and I will get better as a result, but I absolutely won’t harp on their opinion of me, my actions, my decisions, or my ideas.


But remember, I’m human...



I Was In My Head In June Of 2020...


In June of 2020, I decided to launch CILA Labs with the mission of successfully deploying 10,000 tech companies over the next 10 years.


This was met with WAYYY more objection and rejection than I could have ever anticipated, yet I kept on keeping on.


But there was one conversation I had with a family member who said…


“No one that has ever achieved anything meaningful in life focused on more than one thing at one time. You are making a mistake.”

This chat shook me a bit and it got me in my head.


Listen, I am a tried and true sales person which means that I have VERY thick skin and 99.99999% of the time I deeply don’t care about the views of other people, but for some reason, this statement really hit me.


Was he right?

Do I know what I am stepping into?

How many people will I hurt if this does not work?


There was at least an hour where I was stuck...


But then something happened…


Something came over me…

Something opened my eyes wider…

Something made me realize that I HAD to try and I WOULD succeed…


You see…


I believe in calling.

I believe in signs.

I believe in purpose.


But it goes deeper than belief…


It goes to a level of responsibility…

It goes to a depth of expectation…

It goes to a place where I am required to step up, step in, and make it happen.


If you have a naysayer that has said something which got you stuck in your mind - I invite you to believe and to go deep…



If it’s meant to be...it’s up to me!


My call-to-action is this…


Change your story…

Love the feedback…

Never stop because of an opinion…

Believe more…

Go deeper into WHY…

Take personal responsibility…

Care little, commit more…


And most importantly…


Know with 110% certain that you give THIS LIFE your ALL!


Live with Intention,
