The unfortunate truth of owning and running a business. Better yet a small business that provides a service. i.e (Martial Arts Academy)

Running a business is really hard.

What they don’t tell you is that it can cause severe stress and anxiety, and drains you mentally to the point of depression in even the most laid-back people.

People will talk about you, compare you to others, use you, they will view you as a service and not a person anymore.

Friends and family will expect discounts and people will value you and your hard work less than a big chain store.

You have to worry about if you forget to email/message someone back, are they going to think it was on purpose? Did you disappoint them? Will they hold that against you? When in reality you just can’t get to everyone’s messages and emails.

Starting up and running a successful business puts incredible strain on personal lives and relationships, many of which fail because there is just often no work-life balance.

You need to be the director, the worker, the admin, the marketing team, the accountant, the cleaner..... All while being a puppy parent, a husband or a wife, family support, friend...

There’s a reason you don’t see many people succeed in small businesses after 5-10 years. If they are successful they are overwhelmed.

It takes a toll. It’s freaking exhausting. Especially the past couple of years when so much has been out of our control.

Here’s a small reminder that we are just normal people with hectic lives.

Be kind, be patient, support small businesses…….and hopefully more of us will stick around!

And know that 2022 prices are not 2023 prices and might not be 2024 prices.

I copied this from another small business owner. "But it's the truth"

💕Please support small business!


Work don’t stop.

2.0 was coming now just giving me more time to double down 💯


Read that as many times as POSSIBLE!!!!


I always say you have to go to a DARK place to find that extra drive to get to where you want to be.

Some people start something because they’re at a certain point. But then when that motivation goes away it’s time for the to kick in.

That’s the difference between getting to where you want to be and being like everyone else who gives up.

Anything worth having, is worth sacrificing for.


It’s fight week for Carlos time to let all the hard work show and go to work.

Let’s try to make a difference and help kids in need this year.

I was going to donate to Toy for Tots but I also work in the medical field and seeing kids who are sick with illness or kids who just are admitted with the flu. Should not miss out on Christmas.

Please help by donating or Venmo and I’ll get the presents to take or just share if you can’t do either.

Thank you in advance


Shout out to these 3 on their first ever Nogi tournament. Great competition and fun overall.

No losses in this tournament all wins (Experience). They listened most of the the time and came out better then when they entered.

Now back to work this week.


Sad to see you go brother but I know you’ll continue to train and get better out in D.C.

Enjoy the long drive lol, but for sure will see you again soon. 🥋


Everything takes patience. Keep moving, keep working and stay hungry.


We always have that little voice that says you can’t do it. You’re not good enough or this is too tough. We have to learn how to push past that voice.

We have to develop the courage to fight for what we want no matter the obstacles.

Be courageous my friends 😎🦍


Sometimes tough love is key. Get to work 💯🥊


Let’s go one month left in the year what will you accomplish by then?
