Went to a Jiu Jistu seminar tonight, halfway through the evening I found out the girl I partnered up with is the 2017 women's lightweight world champion... so there's that.

    It went well, I just started BJJ less than a month ago, but I've done some sort of martial art pretty much my whole life. Both the girl I was partnered with and the guy leading the seminar (also a champ) seemed pretty surprised that I was so "fresh", so that gave me a confidence boost. Stayed in contact with both of them and I'll probably go watch them compete at this weekend at a big tournament here.

S-corp or LLC?

    Both. Register your company as a LLC, then have your accountant set you up as an S corp. LLC protection and S corp tax savings

    Met with my lawyer, going with LLC for now. If things blow up (which realistically I don't see happening in the near future) and it needs to be restructured later we'll deal with it then.

I got to email my old boss today to potentially hire him. He said he still keeps my name on my mailbox at the office for nostalgia... Awww.

    Lol Maybe so... But I wouldn't mind picking up jobs for his company every now and then, I just don't look law office professional anymore... apparently purple and blue hair doesn't go over well with lawyers yet.

First Muay Thai class and my legs look worse than they did after I got hit by a compact SUV while jogging a few years ago.

This summer I am dedicating to building a new business. I've completed one certification and just signed up for the 2nd program today. I feel good about it, but man there are a lot of things to do. I've been keeping it on the DL from most people until I'm closer to launch, but I just had to tell my THP peoples.

    Thanks guys, haven't started the legal side of it yet, or the location scouting. That's what I'm really dreading. For right now I gotta read a huge 700 page book and take a couple more cert exams. My goal is to be ready for the legal/location stuff at the end of august.

    Thanks, this part should be the easy part, getting an instructors certificate for martial arts... Been doing martial arts since I was 6 and used to teach kiddos karate back in the day, but this stuff now is a little more serious than sport martial arts. Just hoping I make it out of the mountains in one piece... *nervous lol*

    As far as Cali goes, Sacramento is not bad at all. What kind of martial arts are you into?

    JKD, Tai Chi, & Systema are my core training these days. I've worked a little in BJJ, aikido, and grappling but I don't train for sport fighting. I did karate and sport fighting from 6-18. I do qigong too but that's not martial arts, just really helps better one's self mentally and physically, which leads to a better martial artist.

I've been making homemade spicy salad dressing lately. Highly recommend it, we' now prefer to eat salad type meals vs sandwich types because of the spicy dressings.

Trader Joe's sells these fancy "root vegetable chips", but aren't all potato chips really root vegetable chips?

    It's sweet potatoes, beet juiced dyed sweet potatoes, taro, and batata if I remember correctly. So pretty much potatoes and taro root.
    Hog I'd throw a coin in your hat.
