You spend years trying to figure life out. Life cannot be figured out. It has to be lived.
So, I decided to do just that – to live life instead of trying so hard to figure out what the heck I was supposed to be doing right.
I was only getting older and feeling unhappier. Breaking away from everything that didn’t agree with me, and embarking on a true journey of happiness and discovery was the only solution. Happiness should be an all-encompassing feeling. If it’s not for you, click below and start your own journey of self-discovery. You’ll be surprised what you can discover.
To be truly happy, I needed to break away from the awkward rigidity that my life was at the time. Anyone can do it.
YOU GET ONE LIFE.
ONE CHANCE, THIS TIME UP, TO LIVE YOUR LIFE TO THE FULLEST.
Don’t waste it living a life of pretenses. Don’t stay dormant and unhappy where you are. There is so much to learn and discover. Don’t become complacent. Don’t be average. Don’t be like everyone else. Be better. BE YOU.
Most people go about their days without fully enjoying what they are doing. Many of them do it for the sake of money, of paying bills, or saving for something special. They wake up every day, usually early, work, come back, and do it all over again … while life passes them by. Unseen.
What’s the point? Why are some content with breaking the back working like ants without ever enjoying a day doing what they do. That makes no sense.
LEARN TO BE YOURSELF.
LEARN DO WHAT YOU LOVE.
I went to college as an older student, and it was no easy task. Learned about creative writing, psychology, special needs, volunteering, education, law, and human research ethics. These adventures earned me a Bachelor’s in Psychology from the University of Miami, and Master’s Degree in Education and Law from Nova Southeastern University. I continued my education and received a series of certificates from web design to marketing to cognitive behavioral therapy. I love to absorb any information that can help me help others. But the reality is that, while knowledge is power, all these accomplishment amount to just acronyms at the end of my name…
My knowledge and experience comes from having hugged, slid, jumped, endured, advocated, enjoyed, beaten, loved, fought, caressed, hated, taken, sliced, crashed, kissed, climbed, swam, nearly drowned, conquered, and heart attacked life in ways far beyond my age. I am also an avid shooter and technical scuba diver. Life is the greatest teacher, that is, if you’re willing to learn the lessons. And lesson in life can especially be learned from others.
There is a right way and wrong way to do everything, and it has nothing to do with what society or your boss dictates. The thing is, you’re not always going to get things right. What matters is that you care to learn to do it the right way, with you in control. I share all my the experiences and lessons learned my customers because they are my family and the reason I am here today. Experience is the best teacher, especially for those moments when life hurts, and I am always on your team.
I am the founder of Bateman’s Place, an outdoor sports and recreation mega-store online focused on doing good things for good people. Bateman’s Place strives to change the impersonal touch associated with online shopping by doing something simple: treating customers like human beings, not credit card numbers.
I love my customers, and truly enjoy when they share their stories with me. I guess you will test that one out for yourself.
I have acquired knowledge and practice in multiple life situations, industries, and interests. Ranging from special education law to technical scuba diving, from shooting sports to disability rights, from high conflict divorces to boosting your seal-esteem, from co-parenting to advocating, from website design to online marketing…. I dive into each topic that crosses my path and devour information to help others. I love helping people unleash their passions and understand their fullest potential. You will be amazed what people can accomplish with the right guidance and support. From starting new paths mid-life, to building a new business, to discovering hidden talents and passions, or even rescuing animals – I love to help others. It’s like an obsession!
