Ok, take your 11 facts about me. Buzzfeed style. Creeper.
#11. Drake antagonizer
I got a cease and desist letter from Drake’s lawyers after hawking OVO shirts on one of my ecommerce sites back in the day. I should frame that letter.
#10. Uncommon dunker
I dunked it once in the Tucson Summer Pro League (semi-pro) in front of NBA and elite college players. That was probably the peak of my ball’n days.
#9. Mind-numbing media protester
I don’t know what twerking is. Or what Kardashian is dating who. Or what millennials are arguing about what to be offended about.
#8. One-way ticket purchaser
Love to mess around with mini-retirements, like spending 9 months on the coastlines of Central America. Or rocking 5 months in Brazil. Next up? Eastern Europe?
#7. Almost phone-less
Trying this “put-away-your-phone-thing”. If I’m around company, doing work or anything that requires deep focus, the phone goes away. Leaving it in a separate room. Still got work to do.
#6. Borderline tri-lingual
Speak good Portuguese and mess around with some Spanish.
#5. College hoops lover
Yeah, I even low-balled a bid for collegebasketball.com just cause I thought it would be cool to start a reputable-looking basketball site…solely to get press passes for the NCAA tournament.
#4. Occasional fake-baker
I fake bake in the off-season, but not in a Bill Simmons or Donald Trump type-of-way.
#3. Childhood stutter-er
Picked up a b-b-b-ad stuttering habit as a lil guy. I stuttered so, so, so, so, so bad my parents should have rented me out at comedy clubs. Check it:
Transcript? Here goes:
[Me] Dad, Jus-Justin’s not not supposed to to g-go go at Barry’s.
[Me] Cus…So, so, so, so, so, so I can.
[Dad] You can’t go out in the street.
[Me] Yes I can! Then yes I can, Dad!
The best part is that I’m questioning authority at such a young age.
#2. Professional Dexter look-alike
Apparently I look like Dexter, which has helped my limp Tinder profile with some flame these days.
#1. Tim Ferriss fanboy
Stumbled in a library circa 2010, post college graduation, dazed and confused. Wandered to self-help section and checked out this suspect-looking audio called The Four Hour Workweek.
It changed my course. Found the right mentors, studied up on the digital secrets. The rest is history.
