15 Weird Facts About Me (I’m Spilling The Beans Today)

Let’s Get Personal For A Moment (15 Weird Facts)

You probably already read my About Me page on this blog.  If you haven’t, I encourage you to do so here.

There are a few videos on here that can give you a sense of who I am as well.

Today I’m going to do something different.

I’m going to reveal a little more about myself in some sort of Top 10 or 20 type list.

You can read on….if you promise not to laugh.

1.  I’m bald.

I have a bald head, (obviously from my photos) but I literally hate to go more than 1 day without shaving it.  If it doesn’t feel slick as a cue ball, then it needs to be shaved.

2.  I’m a video game junkie, especially when it comes to playing Call of Duty.

My addiction really started way back in 1986, when we got our first Nintendo for Christmas…

Honestly, if I could find a team to join that got paid well to participate in Call of Duty tournaments, I’d do it.  I actually got pretty damn good at this game lol.  Oh yeah, I also wrote a post about it here.

3.  I’m not big on public speaking.

I can make video tutorials all day, but if you put me in a room full of people…I’ll freeze up a little bit.

4.  My nickname should be Mr. Freeze.

I hate Texas weather in the summer.  I feel most comfortable when the temperature’s between 30-70 degrees.  My grandfather used to get on my case for not wearing a jacket when I walked to school in the mornings.  To this day, I rarely (if ever) wear a coat when it’s “cold” outside.

5.  I have a very dry sense of humor.

Sometimes I throw people off because I’ll make a joking comment with a serious look on my face at the same time.  I may have to work on this because I don’t need to be on a Google Hangout having everyone thinking I’m an angry black man.

6.  I’m a “flip the switch” kind of guy.

One minute I’ll be throwing down on Double Quarter pounders, New York-style pizzas, and Steak fajitas and the next I’ll be on a diet mixed with 3 months of P90X and Insanity.  When the weather warms up, I switch to my “healthy” phase lifestyle.

7.  I’m an 80’s movie junkie.

My wife still doesn’t understand my love for 80’s movies.  What really makes her mad is the fact that I know the words to most of them lol.  Let’s see…Back To The Future, The Karate Kid, Ghostbusters, Commando, Indiana Jones, Teen Wolf, The Lost Boys, Weird Science…I could go on lol.

8.  I don’t like taking naps…even if I’m tired in the middle of the day.

I don’t see how people say “I’m going to take a nap at noon today”.  That’s foreign to me.  I gotta stay up because I feel like I may miss something.

9.  We have a family cat that’s obsessed with me.

It’s really my wife’s cat, but this little stalker will literally follow me everywhere.  If I’m at my desk, she’s on the desk.  If I’m on my bed with the laptop, she’s on the bed.  I think she’s watching me…

10.  I struggle when it comes to dealing with people who aren’t self-motivated.

I’d rather have a group of 20 highly motivated people than a group of 100 people who require hand holding.  There’s a huge difference between someone who doesn’t know something, but is willing to learn than someone who wants you to “baby” them through every little detail.

11.  I have a pretty accurate “BS” detector.

I understand that some stuff is pretty much unavoidable and you have to pay for it, like getting your own Empower Network business started.  That’s fine because these are great products.  I could make tutorial videos all day about using your Empower Network blog, but you would still have to purchase it to use it.

But…

If someone says they’re “helping you”, but are nickel and diming you for every little thing…then…

Are they really “helping” you or “helping” themselves?

Let me be clear and say that I’m on here to make money online and if you are I encourage you to do the same, but if I learn a cool new trick I’ll definitely share it with everyone if I feel like it will benefit them.

12.  I’m not flashy at all.

Whether I was making $2,000 a month or $200,000 per month, you wouldn’t be able to tell by looking at what clothes, cars, other items that I possessed.  My wife understands fashion, but to me a shirt is a shirt lol.  The only thing I may splurge on is a pair of Jordans (11’s).

13.  I struggle with working in multiple “boxes” at a time.

To me, I consider that to be chaotic and I don’t feel like I’ll get anything done.  I prefer not to bounce around everywhere and just focus on 1 or 2 I.P.A.’s (Income Producing Activities).

14.  I’m very observant and very laid-back.

I’m one of those types who will go to a gathering and observe what everyone is about before engaging in a nice conversation.  My wife is the complete opposite.  No one is a stranger to her, yet she dislikes anything that has to do with sales.  Maybe I need to work on my “social” side a little more.

15.  I have geek-like tendencies.

I love learning the technical stuff…especially with my blog.  I could sit around and talk about stuff like this all day.  Sometimes I will go to other websites, click on “view source”, and scan their html code and see what they’re doing that I’m not.

Basically, I have zero problems trying to figure certain things out.  I hate not knowing about something that I’m interested in.

Well there it is…15 weird facts about my life that you may find strange or can actually relate to.

I may have to make a part two to this someday.  I’m pretty sure I can come up with a few more.

If you think that you can partner up with someone like me, then go here first.

Until next time,
