Itsyaboy, new day, new goals, lets OWN IT.

If you want to be successful than you will look at today as an opportunity. An opportunity to start your week off focused and determined. An opportunity to get on the path to success, freedom, impact, and legacy. But most of all, an opportunity to take action on your dreams.

This is YOUR TIME. Right now, not tomorrow. We aren’t guaranteed tomorrow. So what are you going to do right now?


Stop being a victim to the fear of failure, fear of difficulty, or fear of doubt, fear of judgement, fear of opinions, or fear of mistakes. FEAR IS ONLY AS POWERFUL AS YOU MAKE IT.

Remember this, if you’re not making mistakes you’re not moving forward. 

You have to stop acting in fear and start acting in faith. 

It’s not going to be easy, there will be doubt, there will be mistakes, there will be rough times, but that is the process.

You need to embrace the process and find your why.

Once you find that one thing that drives you, the one thing that fuels your inner fire, the one thing that is bigger than you, once you find that leader within…. then you will be ready for success.

It starts with YOU. You need to align yourself with the fear and start to act out in faith. Every day starting right now. (Align with the fear means being aware of it, and acknowledging it. Knowing this will be your signal to take action. Act out in faith, not in fear.)

It’s all about your mindset. 

If I quit every time I had doubt, or that I failed, or that I faced disappointment, than I wouldn’t be the successful entrepreneur I am today.

You need to believe in yourself so much that no matter what obstacles you face you will not stop until you push through and get positive results. 

You just need to take that first step and believe in yourself.

Say to yourself…..





Say that to yourself out loud 3 times and tell me how you feel. 

Some quick updates:

Leaders Create Leaders Season 2 has come to an end and our show finale approaches so stay tuned. If you missed any of this Season 1 or Season 2 episodes (16 episodes each) please make sure to catch up by going towww.Youtube.com/GerardAdamsTV

Who wants a Season 3!?

Tomorrow, I am presenting at the New Fronts Conference with Entrepreneur Magazine to find sponsors for Season 3. Each Season we take pride in bringing you premium content for each interview so it has cost me six figures to bring each new season for you so the right sponsors to help subsidize the costs for the team would be helpful. Here is the trailer I will be playing before running on stage to tell my story and hopefully find us some marquee sponsors. Wish me luck!

This weekend I decided after a big week at Fownders to head down to South Beach to reenergize myself on a yacht. The ocean reenergizes me and being on a boat is one of my favorite things to do. Making sure to take time for yourself to reenergize your mind, body, and soul is extremely important. Also, you have to take time to appreciate life and celebrate being alive! Not to mention, one of my investment portfolio companies got acquired so that’s always a win to celebrate too ;)

Here are some photos from this weekend but it will be in my vlog soon.

I launched my vlog back into the mix this weekend. It is called MY LIFE. Episode 01 can be found here: Comment on my youtube or Instagram to let me know what you think!

In Episode One I go into a rant about mentoring aspiring entrepreneurs after meeting up with one of the most engaging content creators right now, The Skin Deep. 

I am thinking of turning all the LCL videos into an audio podcast so it’s easy to listen to the interviews on your way to work or school or commute. Reply back if you think this is a good idea. 

Fownders Academy is gearing up for a big launch. I have been behind the scenes for the past two years planning for this launch to make sure that when I open the doors to my mentorship programs and exclusive educational content, experiences and more that it will be by far the best entrepreneur community for millennials and Gen-Z in the world. Stay tuned for more information coming over the next 30 days. 

I will be in Houston this Friday and Saturday meeting up with Christian Guzman for LCL Season 3. He is dope! 

I have been reading everyones replies about your biggest pain points which I am taking into consideration for the launch of Fownders Academy to make sure I cover what you need help with for your personal growth and business. If you haven’t replied yet please take the time to write to me about YOUR PAIN POINTS. We are in this together and I want to make sure we cover everything you can possibly need to position yourself for growth, fulfillment, freedom, and success. 

We have already received hundreds of responses that I am personally reading through so make sure to get back to me as I love hearing from all of you. It is my purpose in life to be your greatest mentor and share everything I have learned over the last 14 years of overcoming obstacles, learning from some of the best mentors in the world, building brands, and teaching entrepreneurs from around the globe. 

As always, thank you for being a part of this community. We’re in this journey together. Let me be your mirror for what’s inside of you. 

Remember, it’s the start of the week so build momentum and EXECUTE.

Peace and love,

“The Millennial Mentor” ™
