Explorers

Explorers have a different perspective. They have a different willingness to try something new. They have a willingness to go a different route.

Explorers iterate their way forward. They get that they don’t reach their desired destination without taking the steps from here to there.

Explorers push the bar, push the fence line, push the territory, and press the status quo.

Over the coming weeks and months, we are going to share the stories of how recreators go about their exploring. Hang tight, more is on the way!

Recreators

Today is the first day of the new expedition. Going forward from this moment, we are going to periodically add new stories here of the Recreators.

Recreators are the ones that step forward and say, “Not only do I see a different way to go about our venturing, but I’m going there.”

Recreators are the ones that go there, take the action, see the change.

Recreators are the ones that seek not only their own benefit, but seek the benefit of everyone around them.

Going forward, we are going to go meet these recreators and we are going to share their stories. We are going to share in their work. We are going to share in their resourcing. We are going to share in getting to the new ground.

If you are a recreator, an entrepreneur, a startup seeking to accelerate – give us a shout. We are ready to join in the recreation.

Rocket Launchers of Entrepreneurships

Mission Control to theSpace

Ready to rocket launch your entrepreneurships? If so, then you might wish to consider our team of assistants that have made a few moonshots themselves….including this one you’re currently viewing.

We’re on stand by here at mission control just awaiting your signal to fire the engines.

theSpace awaits just ready to see your business venture further than even you might imagine.

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!

Beta: Expedition Mach UP

Given the recent announcement of our Beta: Learning Com, we have another beta roadtripN ahead – Beta: Expedition Mach UP

We have to get the word out about Beta: Learning Com. We need to get our boots on the ground and share the news. We have to do this and while so doing have this activity pay for itself. It has to pay for itself or we will have to charge an arm and a leg for the learning communities. This is simply – “No bueno!”

Now the experts have told us to just do inbound marketing. Their guidance is that we just need to use blogs and tweets and inbound funnels and the like to get the word out. As we were listening to them and questioning how it all works and how does it proof up, they asked us if we knew of any sales teams they could work with that go outbound.

Go outbound? That’s a roadtripN dream!

We love to travel, hit the trade shows, make friends and engage clients face-to-face. We love it so much that we struggle to find time to share to the blog, or tweet, or check the funnels. We get so wound up going outbound that going inbound suffers. We can be weird like that.

So, here’s our plan just in case you have any interest in participating or referring us to one of your friends. We are hitting the road all across the U.S. to introduce our new Beta: Learning Com and to meet others who may want to join in the learning or start their own com. As we go, we are going to offer our abilities to translate English into 28 different languages and vice versa. As we go, we are also going to offer our abilities to meet and share what you may have going on with your business. We are open to seeing how this all shapes up.

The thing we keep hearing over and over and over is, we are really interested to have U.S. sales teams and representatives with boots on the ground and a ready vehicle to roll. And that’s us. We aren’t overly flashy. We aren’t exactly who all the experts would point to. We are however pretty solid when it comes to developing a crew that pays for itself. Practice makes towards perfection?

If you have an interest to participate, or if you need your services translated into local markets, or if you just need a letter translated to German, we’re you’re sales team with boots on the ground. Beta: Expedition Mach UP to share our Beta: Learning Coms hits the road February 10th. Want to thumb a lift?

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).

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.

Jamaica

Cover

Welcome home to paradise! What an awesome scene greeted us from the fly-in. This is RoadtripN wearing our best flip-flops for sure.

After a few weeks out on the open lands, it is always refreshing to look over the Silent Waters, feel the ocean breeze, and receive the umbrella drink greeting. And after a couple of coconut concoctions, as you begin to ponder on the little umbrella makers themselves and just what a service they provide with their craftsmanship and how the drink just wouldn’t be as cool without the tiny shade….you breathe in and look to the blue and thank your lucky stars for the call-up to theSpace.

Seriously, are you taking this all in? Pretty spectacular!
