I want to create everyday... (preferably from here).
I love to create and problem solve. The silver power ranger? That was my idea. I’m not saying they stole my crayon drawing, but I haven’t been able to find them anywhere.I have been daydreaming and inventing since I was a baby. My 1st words were “I got an idea, daddy-o”. I’m not sure why they let me listen to Jazz at such a young age.Software, board games, physical products, jokes, maybe a baby.I love that we can create something and make an impact. To have an idea or a thought in the morning and have a version of it by the evening. Then it’s on the internet, a legacy (hopefully) forever.Create Everyday Framework:2 minute rule: If it takes less than 2 minutes. Do it now.10 minute rule. Do at least ten minutes of something: Make it the smallest part possible to build momentum.Don’t break the chain: Do these everyday and get a streak going.Sincerely,
"JZ is a wonderful partner to work with. His insights are invaluable, and whenever I need help looking a project from a new point of view, he always brings a fresh eye and new ideas. I know whenever I need help, he'll be ready to assist."
***DaKari Williams | Brand Factory ***"I love his enthusiasm and his communication!"
Paula Najas | Wheelhouse.ioKnown him his whole life. I've never seen anyone so obsessive when it comes to problem solving. (I'm worried he may invent a time machine and mess with the time continuum). 10/10 would do it all over again.
