Getting Back on the Horse

Getting Back on the Horse

What does it mean to get back up on the horse? Well, to me, it means everything. See I have found in life that the most important thing , especially in business, it to select the people you work with. This applies to all aspects of life, your relationships mold you as a person, without questions. For this reason, it illuminates my point. If you find yourself surrounded by people that are less driven, less motivated to find solutions, complaining about their life or problems, my best advice is to cut them from your life like a bad habit. These...

From Seed to Shoe

So what's next? When we eventually make it out of the Corona-virus world, how will the new reality shape our lives? I for one will certainly think differently before I spend money in a frivolous manner. I would bet you , dollars to donuts, that as a society, people become more health conscious in their spending and consumption decisions. Most likely that will also emphasize the importance of using renewable resources that decompose.    This is a founding principle in the Fly Soul Shoes story, our passion for a renewable textile, like hemp to take the lead. Our planet is suffering, overwhelmed by...

It is Darkest Before the Dawn

Everyone and I mean everyone goes through tough times, self-doubt, insecurity. These feelings can be triggered by many different reasons but the one constant is that everyone will go through them at some time in their life. It may feel overwhelming, there may feel like there is no way out. It is in these moments, at the bottom that we find ourselves and our true power. Robin Williams, the late comedian, once famously said "A broken heart, hungry stomach, an empty wallet can team you some of the best lessons in life." It is to this point the saying, "It...

From the Ground Up

I am the luckiest man walking the Earth! Now I know that is a pretty bold statement to make, with the over 7 billion other people walking around. But even if the statement is bested by another with a greater fortune in life, it doesn't matter. Why you ask? Because it is the foundation of my mindset every day my eyes open.   See, the Fly Soul Shoes theme "From the ground up" means just that. Where is your foundation built? Our company's foundation is first built on family, team, love, and respect. The values translate into our shoes as we choose...

Our Story

The world is about to change. I know that statement brings up many different ideas of change, especially in the current climate. However, the change that I am speaking of is centered around the health of the planet.    This change has inspired the creation of Fly Soul Shoes. One of the main driving factors when launching our company was the health of our planet as a core value and inspired us to produce a renewable plant-based shoe. Fly Soul Shoes is purposed to provide inspiration, awareness, and empowerment in the recognition of the incredible advantages that hemp provides as a...

Keep Calm and Shine on!

Keep Calm and Shine on!

In these extreme moments, with people pulling their hair out with uncertainty, it is important to stay grounded. One of the ways I have been focusing my energy is through meditation and the techniques involved in visualization.    This is actually the same technique that I employed to originate and build our team here at Fly Soul Shoes. In a time of deep meditation, I have a vision of style and design. However, the vision was really focused upon how a great team can take a great product to unlimited potential.    This meditation allows one to slow down, de-clutter the mind, refocus upon...

Let's Talk About What's Next.

Stuck in our homes, trying to be aware of the dangers of interacting with others, our minds are left to wonder. Some of you, like me, may have wild imaginations that bring you to some odd conclusions from time to time. However, over my years, I have been able to tame my overzealous imagination that pulls me into the rabbit hole and refocus upon realities challenges. This "centering" has helped me achieve many things as of late but in this time of unique challenge, I wonder if it is once again time to let my imagination prognosticate.   Where do we...

What if This is a Blessing?

What if This is a Blessing?

You know, over the past several days, now lingering into weeks stuck in my home, battling the back and forth of boredom a thought not only came to me, it struck me like a kick to the head. What if this turmoil, the world is currently experiencing, is actually a gift, what if this is a blessing, a lesson from nature herself?   See to get to this viewpoint, I have chosen a certain path.  This path starts with the acceptance that, as a member of a great collective consciousness, you're not really in control of the next steps or your future....
