One of the most enjoyable aspects of roadtripN as your attache is seeing the designs for a global mobile creative studio truly come to life.

If you are ready to step into these designs, both digitally and in actuality, we would love to introduce you to our Co.M attache team.

theSpace comes to life! Come and join us in the recreation!

Making an Ambition

Ready to take the entrepreneurship back out into the open waters. This voyage though appears to be an entirely new adventure.

For all of these days before, I have always lived with the impression that ambition was something you either had or you didn’t. I personally have met many ambitious people. I have also met many who didn’t seem all that ambitious.

What I’m saying is….it never occurred to me that we have the ability to make an ambition. That’s correct…I read guidance a few days ago that stated emphatically to “make it your ambition”.

So, in part out of curiosity, in part out of a desire to try something new, and in part because it kind of makes sense why things continue to work out the way they do, the entrepreneurship is pulling off the beach and back out into the waters. Going to go make an ambition!

Lead a Quiet Life

Every word in this recreation of ambition presents a challenge to my old mode of operations and the environment that I reside.

There is not all that much that is quiet today. Noise abounds in the background, noise abounds from the screens, and noise abounds in my head. Quiet is pretty foreign in the moment.

Then there is “lead”. I thought to “lead” was an action that put a man on point in front of other men. Today, it seems that everyone is being developed to be a leader. A leader in their field. A leader in their organization. A leader in their battalion. But, “lead” to a quiet life? Hmmm…doesn’t seem like that will lead to many followers.

Then there is “life”. What a frame. Life is such a word that challenges time definitions. Does one mean the life they are living today in this very moment? Does one mean the life that they may live for the next few decades? Does one mean the story of their life lived that may even go beyond the days of life experienced in this reality?

Lead a Quiet Life? Lead who? How? For how long?

Wind Down

Sharing what we’ve found is the exercise of Wind Down. We will share it if you ask, but we aren’t promoting it. We aren’t promoting it, because this deters from the very exercise.

If you are curiously asking yourself, well isn’t this brief message a promotion of sorts? It’s a fair question, but the answer is no.

The sole reason for this post is to share the key code. Ask, Seek, or Knock, we’re glad to share. But, as for promoting, there isn’t really a need. The scene and circumstances are far better at promoting than we could ever be.

Sherpas

Sherpa

There is wisdom in going up the mountain with someone who has already made the climb and has an experienced compass. Whenever we come to that life pass where a change in direction is necessary, it would seem the best course of action would be to invite the help of a sherpa.

Can you imagine being an astronaut on your first space mission and being called upon to spacewalk outside the shuttle? Can you imagine if you hadn’t received any training in the simulator? What would you do?

Why is it that when life throws a man a curve that is comparable to spacewalking many men choose to walk out into the foreign unknown without seeking for someone who has been there and done that?

If we could offer any advice from our past mistakes, find a sherpa. Whenever you come to that life pass where a change in direction is imperative, find a sherpa.

And then? Head out! Let’s climb!

Vegas in theSpace

Edge-of-Desert

That’s right. Even though we have plenty, this is not another shot of The Strip.This is Vegas in theSpace.

Creative start-up magic often happens in the middle of the desert. As the saying goes: “When you can no longer scratch two nickels together for the slots, then it’s time to invent.”

Fast and furious, venturing in Las Vegas is taking off like bottle rockets (and golf balls).

NM True

New Mexico TRUE

Our entrepreneurship is gathering steam as we make our way out west. Helping small business owners spread the word about their artistry is just one of the things we do. We also ski a little, gather at concerts, and make an investment here and there.

In so many forms, it requires capital to find the way to Outerblue. If you’re in need of a little inspiration, or a lot of help in the area of perspiration, drop us a line. We’re out and about theSpace in New Mexico. Come along for the roadtripN.

Spacewalks

Road

Can you picture yourself on a Spacewalk? Doesn’t this seem highly impossible and unlikely? Totally foreign? Totally frightening?

For men who really want to get off the bench, we invite you to join us for a four-part conversation where we explore 1-on-1:

– Where do we find ourselves now?

– Where are we headed?

– Where are we in need of development?

– Where are we taking action to move forward?

For many of the reasons we highlighted above, we call this series – “Spacewalks”. We admit these conversations probably look scary at first glance. Compared to an actual spacewalk though, isn’t this really more like a walk in the park?

For men who are interested to explore and go further, contact RoadtripN: www.plant12.org

theSpace Moving West

West

The first two sites are launched and two more appear to be on the near horizon. theSpace is now open in Dallas and Denver with Albuquerque and Las Vegas upcoming.

What exactly is theSpace you may be asking? theSpace is an exploratory community of primarily men that have experience with a total change of direction in their lives and/or careers. theSpace is part support, part encouragement, part incubator, and part map room offering experience and insights while walking alongside men through these transitions.

If you are struggling to find the way right now in your career, business, family, health, or life – we invite you to check out theSpace.

Dawn

RoadtripN Sunrise

All-in and holding nothing back, this dawning of day shouts it out loud. Awaken, there is no need to suffer any longer. The beams of brilliant light piercing out of the old rubble make clear the way is paved and passage is secure. What a sight to see refreshed down-and-outers giving themselves to the down-and-out.

Sound the trumpets. Life is coming to the emptiest of places. In plain view, the rebellion of false appearances is being offered the invitation to step out of the shadows and become transparent.

Here we go! Dawn is breaking in! Prayers for help are being answered! Time to go soaring!
