Mammas don’t let your babies grow up to be little Mofo’s.
What I mean by that is… depending upon your level of conservatism there are a lot of things that I say or do that probably should not be aired in front of your kids. I’m not the ideal role model for a bunch of 17 year old Mormon boys about to embark on a spiritual mission.
On the other hand, I’d like to introduce you to a guy that you should introduce your kids to if you want them to embark on a solid, mature and responsible path to adulthood. His name is Josh Shipp.
Josh is a motivational speaker for teens and I just totally dig his stuff. I think a bunch of adults could do themselves some good to listen to him as well.
I can’t exactly remember how I came across his stuff. I think it may have been a Facebook message he sent me about this hip hop song he put together with a few buddies. The song is about graduating from school in the year 2010.
I’m super picky about the kind of hip hop music I like. I mean, really picky. It’s hard to earn my respect in the hip hop world as so much of it is over inflated hype, violent, fictional garbage and blatant lies. Josh takes another approach and blew my mind with this video…
Good stuff huh? I told ya.
Anyhow, I posted this blog because I’m sure there are many of you out there with 14 to 18 year old kids that are in need of some type of guidance. And lets face it, kids need as many good role models as they can find out there today. Especially with easy access to just about everything on the internet.
So today I thought I would introduce you to Josh Shipp and his amazing talent to inspire young kids to become great adults. I haven’t met him personally, but am confident he is one solid guy that is on a path to doing astonishing things for himself and others around him.
Here’s another clip of Josh from his website and a couple of links to follow him around the web. Enjoy…
