Behind the scenes: Schedule of a spectacular day!

BEHIND THE SCENES: SCHEDULE OF A SPECTACULAR DAY!

I’ve had such a powerful day! I have one more thing to do on my to do list to really knock today out of the park. But before I do that, I wanted to come and lay some track for anyone reading.

Today is the type of day to document, because, it already comes on the heels of a powerful week. Monday, I was able to deliver an amazing day of coaching service at a local non profit after school program. Tuesday I was teaching my graduate-level Teaching Strategies course, and Wednesday I was teaching my graduate-level Teaching Seminar course. Each time getting positive feedback back from my students. I’m always surprised when students praise my teaching practice.

Teaching practice and coaching practice is hard! Shit! I’m finding in my entrepreneurship and research that teaching and coaching is about constantly evolving, and challenging yourself. It’s about communication. Its about the transfer of knowledge, and the equipping of tools.

That’s hard, but we here are EDGE-ucational Media Company, LLC believe it to be possible to strategically equip yourself with tools and lived experiences, in an effort to craft the leadership journey you want to live here on Earth. We believe that is possible and curatable in the living moment. We believe you the reader in this moment holds the power to determine your programming and ultimately where your path will lead, and the impact you will have.

Getting back on topic – as a company we had one of the strongest days of the year today. And we’re still conquering items on the to do even down to this post. the to do list we start the day with is the guide for what can be a powerful day of creation, or a wasteful day of consumption.

Today’s to do list – written during our morning journal time:

I know you’re all like… is this fool going to keep posting ____ with me videos!?

The answer is YES! LoL

The more I learn about human’s capacity to learn, change, produce, and create – the more I realize we rely on examples and models to get us started.

Here, I’ve compiled a video of random workout clips of myself through the year. I want to encourage those that are looking to take control of their fitness journey to use this as a resource.

Where does this blog go from here?

So why did I stop? It never felt like I did. The creativity just shifted inward.

What once was a creative process that lived wholly online, evolved to a process that I kept closer to my heart. Closer to my chest. For numerous reasons I felt a certain gaze fall upon me. One that I wasn’t foreign to. I’ve always been peculiar, and people have gazed upon me as such. Never the less, it made me go inward with my creative exploration.

There have been many times I’ve thought about returning. Most times not knowing what to say. Many times drafting a post similar to this and scrapping somewhere between creation & proofing. I want today to be different. In full transparency, I NEED today to be different. The longer I wait to post on the blog, the longer it takes for me to unearth this once mighty tool of mine.

In my absence here on these pages. (Which soon will change) I’ve been working to really think about my business. My businesses. This blog was the beginning of my journey to being a self-employed media magnate, controlling multiple media entities leaving positive change in the wake of everywhere I ventured.

Through the years. So so much has changed. From my professions. My titles. My roles. My ownership. My internal battles. My confidence and strength. My love and self love. My security and structures. But what has remained the same was my drive to create something different. I know there is a different way. A way that I can care our for myself that helps me share my talents with the world. I know that this is a journey from one failure to the next. And baby let me tell you the failures are long, regular, ad routine.

But you know what. So are the wins. The failures are devastating, unexpected, ruthless, carefree. But on the flip side so are the opportunities, the achievements, the successes, the wins. Skoolhaze the blog has always been a space where I could come to challenge myself to be creative and innovative beyond anyone else’s measure. Its still that space. I’m not sure why I felt censored. But I did. Perhaps it was subconsciously self-imposed.

Personally, I was transitioning, through much internal transformation work.

My friend likes to say he’s all about that work. – You know, implying he’s all about that space where we learn and grow. The razor’s edge.  

This put me in situations and spaces where my voice had more “power” and maybe most importantly more eyes. I wanted to be mindful of what I said and how I said it. I wanted to be someone that walked while talking.

In that vein I can remember starting Skoolhaze nine years ago. In my apartment in Boston, a young man prepping to transition to New York City to enter a masters degree program, and the practice of teaching the youth.

Transformation can not be held back and restrained for long. At some point it must move forth into new territory. To claim new space and time.

Today, the goal is to reconfigure and reintroduce this Skoolhaze space. This space is now officially property of EDGE-ucational Media Company, LLC. (EMC). EDGE-ucational Media Company, LLC is a media company charged with cultivating the tools to help  leaders like you change the world! Our company was birthed here at the inception of the Skoolhaze pages. And it is our honor to acquire this foundational body as we build upon this legacy in our founders honor.

Through this partnership, EMC is establishing a publishing house for its free offerings and content to the public. We encourage you to subscribe to our page, and to return often as we make updates and changes to the sites skeleton to handle an increasing warehouse of content.

We want to thank everyone that has traveled with us thus far. We are excited for the next phase of our journey.
