If you’re going to be successful...

I’m not sharing this video because of the NFL or because of the athlete. I’m sharing this because of the important message related directly to success and finding it. You’ve heard it before: If you want to be on the same level as the people that you look up to, you’ll need to work really, really hard. The secrets to success are revealed through hard work.

If you’re going to be successful you’ve got to be willing to give up sleep.

This does not mean do not sleep. However, it does mean you need to prioritize. It is a metaphor for certain things in life that you do that can and quite possibly, need to be sacrificed.

New season is coming! Our new release is coming and I've been working hard on getting it out on schedule. Here is a sneak peak..

I spent the last week drawing and drawing and choosing the right colors. It’s a lot of moving parts to keep organized and although it seems we have lost track on the blog a little bit everything is finally all coming together and this special release is going to be one of our best yet!

Midday hustle: LSD NO-NO

One of my top ten videos ever..... ever.

I know some of y'all been wondering whats happening with Grits. Its been a minute because I need to learn balance between work and family. Sometimes I am guilty of putting work above the latter. In order to balance everything, I took a small hiatus to search out new ideas and relax a bit. And I must say it was a breathe of fresh air! During this time I had a couple of epiphanys.

One of those brilliant ideas resulted in getting married to Toya Bee. (Some may have seen her helping at the booth at Kixpo or H-town Sneaker Summit.)
The others are secret for now and they will soon manifest this fall.

Anyway, anytime is a a good time think about ones work/life balance. To find our purpose in life.

Many people work crazy hours to fill a void in their life. Some are just so driven and excited about what they do everyday that they cannot think of anything else.

For those, the old saying "Work's only Work, if you'd rather be doing something else", applies.

Either way, as we get older, it seems we come to appreciate that there is something to finding that balance, and everyone's balance is different, some it's 10/90, others it might be 90/10, but one of the keys to happiness is finding yours.
For those of us who will be grinding over the next couple of months, make sure that you use that time well - there's no point of just going through the motions.

Sorry for the Radio Silence Folks!

I know it's been rather quiet on the Grits front lately as we've been working on expanding, creating the new line and accessories and also a wedding. Yup! a wedding. Anyway, I'm sorry for the radio silence and for neglecting this here blog which I know loyal fans of Grits enjoy and visit frequently.

We do have some good news, and a lot will be disclosed next week. So stay tuned.

It's good to be back!
