Jared, Slow Down…


“I have a very weird relationship with time which leads to squashing any possibility of a delay because you never know what tomorrow will bring but I am certain of what will get accomplished today.” - Jared Yellin


I have definitely NEVER spoken about what I am going to share with you right now and I foresee this evolving into WAYYYYY more than this one article, but here we go…


When I think about my childhood, there is really only ONE word that comes to mind…


LOUD


There was nowhere to go for solitude…

There was nowhere to go for peace…

There was nowhere to go for serenity…


Here’s how I see my childhood…


My parents were madly in love. Like a public display of love. Kissing, hugging, holding hands and then all of a sudden, I am five years old and my parents ask my sister and I to come to the living room…


We are sitting on this itchy gray couch that we used to have…

There was an odd energy in the air…

And all of a sudden, the light was turned off.


What I mean by this is that the only memory I have of my parents marriage was an insane level of love and on that evening a mark was etched in my life forever…


My parents told me they were getting divorced!


WTF!?!?!?!


I remember crying…

I remember feeling really confused…

But more than anything else….


I remember in that moment having an entirely new relationship with time!


I Am NOT A Victim - Rather A FREAKING VICTOR!!!!


My entire life changed that night…


We went from being a family unit to an extremely broken family.


My parents are my best friends and I love them deeply, but in that moment, my sister and I had our worlds turned upside down FOR THE BETTER!!!


Wait...for the better?!?!


You see - my parents divorce was my greatest gift in life.


YES, extreme pain.

YES, extreme stress.

YES, extreme uncertainty.

YES, extreme discomfort.

YES, extreme drama.

YES, extreme financial rollercoaster.


YES-YES-YES, FREAKIN BREAKTHROUGH OPPORTUNITY!!!


That experience was sooooo radical and sooooo intense and sooooo unexpected that it prepared me for LIFE as an entrepreneur, because life as an entrepreneur is just soooooooooo radical and sooooooooo intense and sooooooooooooo unexpected.


That experience defined my relationship with TIME, which I am telling you right now is my single most competitive advantage against anyone else in the world.


My relationship with time is defined as….


You never know what tomorrow will bring but I am certain of what will get accomplished today.


I don’t TALK about anything…

I don’t PERSEVERATE ever…

I don’t WAIT for the right time…


Because I don’t know when my light will be turned off again…


And this is not a sense of urgency based on death…


This is a sense of urgency based on LIFE and LIVING and HAVING IT ALL!


My Attorney Often Thinks I Am Crazy


My general counsel is a man named Kent who has been with me on this journey for almost 10 years now. He is like the g-dfather of my entrepreneurial endeavors and he often asks me why I am in such a rush…


And he knows what my answer will be…


I don’t know when my light will be turned off again…


You see, I do a TON of stuff at the same time.


I am a parallel entrepreneur of parallels.


In the last 90-days we have launched 15 tech-companies.


I have decided to launch an Angel Investor Network to give accredited people an opportunity to invest in disruptive technology in a way that they would NEVER be able to...ever! This decision took place on a Monday and will be LIVE by a Friday!


I am launching 2 podcasts…

I am launching a weekly guide to have it all…

I am launching a new personal brand…

I am writing a book....

I am hiring 100+ people...

I am launching multiple membership platforms…

I am DAD with ZERO distractions for hours a day…

I am a husband…

I am healthy…

I decided on Thursday to sell everything and move from CT to FL in one week!


And I do all of this with ferocious speed.


I don’t think about ACTING…

I JUST ACT!


Because what if I don’t and between thinking and acting my light goes out….?????


So, What’s The Point Of This Article?!?!


I wrote this as a call-to-action AND as a permission-granted for you.


Because I deeply believe everyone can operate the way I do OR at least significantly faster than they are right now, but here’s what’s holding you back…


“Patience is a virtue…”

“Think before you act…”

“Take it easy…”


These stupid, meaningless, ridiculous beliefs are holding you back from what you FREAKIN deserve…


IT ALL!


So maybe you don’t have a “LIGHT SWITCH OFF EXPERIENCE” like my parents divorce OR maybe you do and you have suppressed that event because of the pain it represents…


But regardless, here’s my challenge…


Find something that accelerates your speed, your ability and willingness to take action, and your commitment to never giving up…


Find something deep within…

Find something that drives you...

Find something that becomes your light switch moment…


And use this something to establish a WEIRD relationship with time because…


You never know what tomorrow will bring but I am certain of what will get accomplished today.


Live with Intention,
