What’s up peeps?!! I’m back in the entrepreneur game in a big way with my new food delivery service “Yellow City Delivery” in Amarillo, Texas! Seriously, it’s by far and away the best food delivery service in Amarillo. Just saying 🙂 Ok, so here’s a quick rundown of my life and what’s been going on!
Long time no speak. It’s been a good 2-3 months by my guesstimation. I’ve spent these past months working 110+ hours per week (at least) building my new food delivery service company in Amarillo, Texas.
I literally nearly killed myself.
One evening while working, I was talking to a large group of people in a home, when mid-sentence my brain quit working and speech came to a complete stop. I didn’t know what to do, my mouth wouldn’t work, and the right side of my body became numb and paralyzed. This lasted for a couple of minutes and I made some super awkward faces and gestures and finally managed to stumble out of the house while mumbling something along the lines of “I’m sorry I don’t know what happened to me”…
The next morning I woke up with a pounding headache and it felt like the right side of my body and legs were moving. However, I didn’t know if it was only the pounding in my head that was making me feel this way or if I was truly in fact moving. I rolled over and asked my wife if my body was moving. She responded, “yeah baby, you’ve been moving all night, I thought you were just trying to bother me”…
Freak out mode! I tried to get up and walk to the bathroom and my body wouldn’t work. I just jerked as I tried to make it to the bathroom. Arms and legs were numb and I was shaking. I began to scream and yell and went into total freakout mode. I went straight to the ER and was admitted immediately for seizures etc.
The docs did a catscan and immediately after the doc came in and said my brain showed signs of masses. WTF? Masses on my brain eh? Anyhow, my life began to flash before my eyes. What in the f**ck is happening to me? I have brain cancer? Brain tumors? Does this mean I have to get my head cut open and have crazy ass surgery? No no no, I’m not doing that. I began to cry. My parents were there in the room with me. I told them I just wanted to go home. All I could think about was how was I going to take care of my family if this was as serious as I was thinking.
About 30 minutes later the neuro-surgeon came in and said “I don’t think that’s tumors or nothing, I’ve see this before, it’s a parasite”. WTF?!?! Pheeeeew!
Then the diagnostic doctor (i.e. Dr. House type specializing in figuring out special problems) came in and asked me some questions. One which was “have you traveled outside of the United States”? If you’ve kept up with my writings then you know that I lived in Brasil for a couple of years, got dengue fever, and who the hell knows what else.
Long story short, the docs believe that I got a parasite in Brasil from undercooked pork and I don’t have brain cancer or tumors. We shall see as the results are still pending IMO.
Moving on, I’m fine, I’ve been working a ton, and the new company is going great! We are scaling at a very fast pace and I couldn’t be any happier! Yellow City Delivery is by far and away the best food delivery company in Amarillo, Texas hands down! I mean seriously, there isn’t anything that even comes close to it!
We are currently operating with about 4-5 drivers and completing about 40 orders per day. I suspect by the end of the week we will be closer to 60! In addition, we’ve got about 30 restaurants signed up leaning weight to the local favorites rather than the corporate chains. Come on, you know how I roll! I quit corporate law for a reason baby! But I digress, I’ve already written tomes about corporate America 🙂
So things are going just peachy, I’m still alive, I’ve got about a $20k hospital bill, but hey, life goes on and I’m gonna keep swinging for the fences baby!
On another note, there are tons of wind farms calling me for drone inspections here around the Texas Panhandle. If any of you have any experience doing these inspections, holler at me here, on my Facebook page, or Twitter and maybe I can put you into the mix on some inspections. I just don’t have the time.
