The Real Enemy
They’ve impacted me.
I’m sure they’ve impacted you and the reason these things keep us stuck is that at our very core, we desire security.
We want safety.
So, when we have to do something that requires a step of faith or a little vulnerability, it scares the crap out of us and we talk ourselves into just making the safe play.
Four months ago, I decided to depart my safe job with a safe salary so I could create a safe place for men who struggle with porn and lust. A place where they can find the support and encouragement they need via a like-minded online community that allows them to just be themselves.
A new resource that I believe will benefit thousands of men.
The vision is clear… but the path to execution, well… that’s not quite as clear.
You see when I decided that this was the cause I was going to go after…
I sent out a lot of support emails.
I made some new connections.
I crafted an elaborate plan that I would raise a chunk of money, which would be enough to pay for one year of app development plus all the marketing necessary to keep it thriving.
It was a great plan.
It was well thought out.
Most importantly, it was safe.
But, here we are now in October, and while we’ve raised a decent amount of funds, the reality is we’re nowhere near our original goal.
We don’t have that nest egg that’s going to keep me sleeping well at night.
Why do I share this with you? Well, it’s not to ask you for money.
Safety has been my enemy.
These things have kept me stuck.
I can’t ignore the advice I’ve been getting from those I love and trust.
I can’t ignore what I feel God’s put on my heart.
I need to launch this app now… without safety, without a big fat nest egg.
Realize that what I’m struggling with is different than the fears you struggle with. But at the end of the day, it’s still a threat to my core need for security and safety.
Launching an app without 100% of the money raised to do it comfortably certainly makes me vulnerable, or at least feel that way.
But I know I need to just go after it.

I have to forget about the worst-case scenarios I’ve been building up in my mind.
I need to walk by faith, not by sight as the Bible says.
I need to do what’s going to help me become a better version of myself and also help others become better versions of themselves.
There is no other option because I’m not going to give myself one.
So, I want to leave two things with you…
Go after the things you know you need to do to become a better version of yourself.
Don’t let fear get in the way.
You know what you need to do.
Just do it and don’t give yourself an option B.
The developers are working on getting it listed in the app store as we speak.
I’m so excited about this. I can’t wait to share it with you when it does become available and because you’re on our email list, you will have the opportunity to get early access to this app.
Keep an eye out for those emails as we get closer because I will be giving you some sneak peeks as to what to expect from Live Free, the app, and this new community that we are building together.
Thanks, and keep moving forward
