The Long Version:
I grew up in Connecticut. My parents divorced when I was 3, so I never had a normal family life. From when I was a little kid through middle school, I lived with my mom during the week and I would go to my dad’s house on the weekends.
I hated my mom’s house because she remarried and my new step-dad always tried to tell me what to do. He would force me to play outside all day when I just wanted to watch TV/play video games. It was a very strict household overall. My new step-dad brought a step-brother though, which definitely helped the situation. Me and him were tight.
But then, my mom and step-dad had a kid of their own, and that just made everything worse. They gave my new brother all the attention and he turned out to be super annoying. We fought constantly.
My dad’s house on the other hand was the shit. Unlike my mom’s house, there were absolutely no rules. I could do whatever I wanted, and me and the other kids in his neighborhood became best friends. Everyone used to come to my dad’s house on the weekends and play video games all night and sleep over. My dad would also take us anywhere we wanted to go. The weekends were a blast.
In terms of school, middle school was very unique for me. My mom paid tuition for me to go to a public school in a different town than where we lived. I was never involved in sports or “grew up” with the other kids in my school so I always felt like an outsider. I did however have a good amount of cool friends during the school day.
I used to have long hair and the girls absolutely loved me. I was so shy though so I had no idea what to do. I stuck to AIM and talked to them online since I was too much of a pussy in school.
I also used to get bullied by a select group of kids. My mom made me dress in extremely outdated clothes while everyone else had cool outfits. I got a lot of shit for that.
But by 7th and 8th Grade, I finally got some cool clothes and got even more attention from girls. My shyness decreased, and could now talk to them in class. Unfortunately, I was absolutely obsessed with one girl which distracted me from harnessing my full potential with the other girls.
I had a few girls who liked me/wanted to date me but I only wanted this one girl who I was obsessed with. It was incredibly stupid because I had this best girl friend and we would talk on the phone all the time. I never realized she liked me until I looked back on the situation. She was really hot too and would’ve made a great girlfriend.
I remember on Valentine’s Day in 8th Grade, I bought 4 different girls chocolate (the best friend girl got me a present too). I was a stud, no-one else was doing shit like that. If only I could’ve capitalized on the situation, I would’ve been a middle school legend. I just couldn’t close. I was still too much of a pussy.
Anyway after middle school I decided enough was enough living at my strict mom’s house and I told them I was going to live at my dad’s full time.
I moved to a completely new town for Freshman year of high school and I reverted back to my shy kid ways. Not knowing anyone was one hell of an anxiety roller coaster.
I would have classes where I didn’t talk to anyone and no-one knew who I was. Looking back, I can’t believe how much of a weirdo I was.
But, I did have some classes where people reached out to me and I made two really good friends. We all played instruments (I play the drums), so we decided to start a band.
All throughout the summer of Freshman year through the beginning of senior year we were best friends and took the band pretty seriously – we were pretty good too. We played shows and even recorded an album.
Anyway, beginning of Sophomore year, we all started smoking weed. We had some great times. After school we would all come over to my house, smoke, watch Seinfeld, and practice if we weren’t too lazy.
They had some stuff going on with girls though while I was still falling behind. I was so skinny and awkward, I can see why I had trouble.
But then Junior year came around, and I started smoking with some popular kids and became semi-popular myself. I even had a few girls I was talking too, but once again I was too pussy to pull the trigger.
It was my best period of high school though – I would have a party at my house on the weekends and everyone would sleep over.
Unfortunately this popular period was short lived, as weed starting giving me extreme anxiety and paranoia. I couldn’t smoke anymore and this caused me to lose all my popular friends. We had nothing else in common.
Anyway, at the end of Junior year I finally lost my virginity to some random girl in my old town. I never got to hookup with any of the stunners in my high school.
Then Senior year came and some bullshit happened where the band fell apart and I lost all my other friends over stupid drama. The second half of Senior year was extremely lonely and I couldn’t wait to get to college.
But, I stupidly decided to go to a small private college in my home state.
At the start of college, I was killing it. I was meeting a lot of new people and was talking to a shit load of girls. But, I quickly developed one-itis for this super hot blonde girl I was best friends with. I confessed my crush to her and she shot me down. I was devastated.
I became super depressed until one weekend I randomly met a girl at a party who I fucked on the first night. She became my girlfriend for the next 2 years.
Overall it was a great relationship, but I ended up breaking up with her to get my life back together after I left school following my Freshman year. She was a very important part of my life but I had to do it.
Anyway after it ended, I randomly found GLL which blew my mind. Everything I thought I knew about girls I threw out the window and I dove head first into Chris’s advice. I started getting success and moved to Florida to finish up my remaining college years.
I eventually started Loser 2 Winner and did a Podcast with Chris in December of 2014. It chronicles more about my transformation and my move to Florida.
Meanwhile, my move to Florida completely changed my mindset on life and I ended up dropping out of school with one semester left to focus on Loser 2 Winner and other businesses.
I then moved back to Connecticut, to save enough money to leave the country and live overseas. I chronicle my year in Florida in this post right here, where I’m completely transparent about everything I did.
During the harsh Connecticut winter, I basically locked myself inside and quickly flipped my first ecommerce business for $2,250.
I then started and sold 2 more ecommerce stores, which supported me enough to leave the degradation of the US and move to Chiang Mai, Thailand.
Shortly after arriving in Thailand, I met some guys who taught me how to do ecommerce via Aliexpress and FB Ads.
I had been making a little bit of money through ecommerce for about a year, but with this new method, I really started to reap the rewards.
That’s pretty much my life so far. Thanks for reading!
