There has been a lot of universal activities this week for everyone that I know that is participating in the MKMMA program. It is very exciting and also very scary as I am going to be stepping into the unknown. Since this is my 3rd time around I know what that means and how the heroes journey works but still isn’t EASY. I won’t go into any more about that but you will see later in the course unless you are already a Joseph Campbell fan.
I have not been performing the homework assignments as well as I should be, especially knowing what I know but there is a lot going on in my life currently that would be overwhelming to most. Nothing catastrophic but certainly difficult and challenging.
Mainly my primary business is going through a transition that will most likely result in me buying my partner out to save the company from his consistent problem creating decisions. He is a great salesman and net-worker but has no clue about management or actual business operations for the size that we have become. He makes everyone in the company work harder than they need to and is driving people away. The first (and worst) hit at this moment was my wife quiting because she can no longer put up with his insanity. She was and has been a critical component to the growth and success we have experienced and although she thinks she is replaceable she absolutely is not. I love her and want her to be happy and less stressed so I am supporting her decision as it should make our home life more harmonious. My workload is going to double and I am going to suffer along with the company by her absence but if I can buy out my partner she will return. There are many other pieces to this portion but I cannot divulge too much until the right time as I do not want anything to get out to the wrong people at his time.
On a really good note, something that has been part of my DMP for the last two years is inching closer to reality. I am hopefully just a couple weeks away from finalizing a purchase of a producer/processing cannabis business which has been a passion of mine for many years. All contracts have been signed and paperwork submitted to the WLCB so it is just a matter of time before I get the call to go through the vetting process to which I am certain will not be any issues. My friend Zack who is also participating in the MKMMA is going to be my partner in this new venture and I am super excited to see where it will lead us.
I have also been doing a 12 week workout program for the last 10 weeks to which I have lost over 25lbs and feeling great. I am in need of new pants and that is pretty freaking cool. I was able to get my trainer, Stepahana, into the MKMMA program as well and that is another component to my support system.
There really is a lot of positive things happening currently beyond the seemingly negative swell around my partner and what that is going to look like while we transition. The company has become an extended family and it’s importance to me is only surpassed by my actual family which puts me in a position to make some tough decisions that will most likely result in losing a long term relationship with him but it is all his doing so there is no reason for me to feel guilty or scared. Everything happens for a reason and that reason is usually built upon what we think.
I got to get more consistent with my sits and my enthusiasm, all lifes answers are waiting there for each of us to discover.
Until next time…….
