Welcome to the Badassery Lifestyle!
When I first had the idea for a digital magazine, I had no idea where it would take me. Well I can tell you that it is now more than just and idea. It is real and it has exceeded my expectations. It is seriously stunning what can happen when people embrace true collaboration.

Just in case you aren't convinced, here is my very first letter from the editor. Enjoy! And happy connecting.
"We all have a dream. Mine was to inspire and empower people. I can say was, because I am no longer living in the past tense. My dream has vanished and I have made it a reality. That dream is dead to me. It has literally become who I am. I no longer dream. I just do.
Don’t let your dreams just be dreams. Don’t let them be unicorns, an untouchable and mythical beast. Live them. Be them and make them transpire. I’m almost over the word dream entirely. Yes I have a dream, you have a dream, we all have dreams. But are they now actions? Or are they simply just a dream? I challenge you to stand up those dreams. Look them in the face and show them that you are what badassery is made of.
Once you accept this challenge, you can’t go back. Badassery is rendering all onlookers stunned. You did what was once seen as impossible. You are the doer. You are now just downright badass.
Being badass might seem like that unicorn. It really isn’t. If you are reading this, you are already badass. You understand that taking a leap of faith is essential to growing. You know in your soul that you are where you are suppose to be. You might not have reached the holy grail, but damn straight you are on you way to get there. Besides that, who even know what the holy grail is. You get to decide! You recognize the courage inside of yourself. You stood up and said, “YES, I AM READY”. You my friend, are a true badass.
That is literally where Badassery Magazine was born. I was sick of dreaming and ready to do. I want everyone who literally reads this publication to understand that they are not alone. This whole business thing is hard. Recognize community over competition. Have each others back and have some serious fun in the process.
Thank you to all of the collaborators and thank you for welcoming all of us into your world. My deepest concern is that this inspires you in the way that every single one of you have inspired me. Move your dreams off the board and into reality. This is your time and you are worthy".
