Throughout my life I’ve always faced challenges head on. I’ve always faced adversities head on. Not once have I taken the easy way out, or backed down from anything. As a matter of fact, I thrive off the stress and uncertainty that a challenge of any sort brings.
Right now I am finding myself laughing on both the inside and out for a variety of reasons, about a variety of different things. None of these things even deserve further comment. As for all these “things,” I would like to simply thank everyone who has been in touch with me. Everyone who has showed support through Email, YouTube messages, Facebook messages, everywhere. Bottom line is that there’s nothing going on “around here” other than business as usual!
I’m going to keep being myself, keep getting money, and keep growing. It’s funny, I don’t think you ever quite KNOW where you are going without uncertainty, or know that you can’t fail, until you hit a point of rock bottom within your life. For me I hit that point back in 2004 with a marijuana case, which I don’t speak on too often. I stand firmly behind the legalization/decriminalization of marijuana, and always will. Perhaps it’s something I will get into further in a coming post. It’s because of that point of hitting bottom that I am the man who I am today, why I have the goals I do, why I’ve arrived at the point I am at today, and why I truly KNOW for a fact that I have more hustle in my left nut than most of these other guys have in their entire bodies.
Someone pointed out to me recently that I don’t have to say anything, I literally have “binders” of credibility, which I thought was a very valuable point. I’m not hiding behind anything, as is evident with my Internet presence from the last few years.
With these next few coming days comes a lot for me. I’ll be heading out to another auction (or two!), getting in to work on the co-op booths, doing some eBay & Etsy listing, and filming/work for my upcoming “Project X” show/podcast. It looks as though I’ll actually be picking up a new camera this weekend as well, which is super exciting! Always fun to get to play around with new technology. One thing that is on the back of my head right now is this year’s OUP Photography Tour, which I am always excited about. As of right now I don’t have all the details, but it’s always a blast. Last year the OUP Photography Tour took me to St. Louis, Nashville, Cincinnati, all over the place, and I’m sure this year will be much the same.
In addition to all these and other things, “Trash Talk & Treasures” is in the process of getting better and better. I’ll be working out the details with some good people, but rest assured that the often imitated, NEVER duplicated fun that is TTT won’t be going anywhere, ANYTIME soon. As I said we’ll just be getting better! I’m not going to give anything away just yet but you can count on learning a lot more, and getting a lot more out of TTT in the future. I’m seeing a lot of bullshit out there, which is expected, but not something I’m proud to say I stand behind.
I’m really starting to enjoy doing these posts here on BrentOtt.com more and more, and I’m very appreciative that you guys have enjoyed reading them. I appreciate all the comments, views, and of course all the viewers who have in turn checked out my other projects/sites/blogs, etc… As always, if there is ANYTHING I can help you with or anything you would like to get ahold of me for simply email firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks guys, and I’ll check back in soon!
