VLOG Episode #18 Two Cool Chics

Salon Centric in Mesa
So this post is about some super-cool chicks that I met while I was out with my wife running some errands.
These two ladies work at Salon Centric and I believe it’s located in Mesa.

My task and personal/ business goal is to IMPACT –  INSPIRE and IMPROVE the lives of others. Part of that goal is meeting new people and learning about them and what they do. As such I like spending time getting to know people and today was no different.

I’m super into edifying other people and making sure that they are valued and appreciated for what they do because if it wasn’t for these two ladies, my wife would have had a much harder time finding products and deciphering which product is best for not only her hair but the hair requirements of other people.

So every chance that I get I like to send a big shout out to those people who go above and beyond with customer service because that is an art and a skill set that is almost non-existent nowadays, however, these two chicks have proven that  theory totally wrong because these ladies are all about customer service, listening and providing a most excellent solution for whatever your needs might be as it relates to hair-care products and more.

I would mention their names but I did not get permission to do so but just know that if you have a professional cosmetology business license and you happen to find yourself at this location you now know who to look for. because these two ladies will hook you up and entertain you as well. at least that’s what my experience was like two or three times that I’ve been there.

I just want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for making my day a little bit better because customer service and a good smile goes a long way.

You guys rock!!!

Salon Centric Ladies rocking it

VLOG Episode # 18 Do this NOW to save your life

So one of the leading causes of chronic health problems is being dehydrated.  All you have to do is look around and see bodies are starving for quality nutrition while being fed mediocre “food-like substances” that only end up making a situation worse.
What I want to get across in this video is going back to the basics with what works.  The fundamentals never fail and if you are doing things on your own, then drinking water is the one thing you can do right now to make your situation a little bit better.
So tell me, what are some habits you are doing right now that helps your meet your goals?  Or do you have more habits that take you away from your goals.  Go ahead and share here on my site.  I don’t judge – I care.  There is a difference.
Don’t forget to post your comments here.  Now go fourth and be Xcellent champ.


VlOG Episode #17 Celebrating An Athlete

I am so proud of this athlete and friend of mine, I don’t know what to do with myself! This young athlete is taking control of not only her fitness, but she is taking control of her life!
I am so Xcited because I get to watch her transformation every time she steps into the Fitness Dungeon and it’s only going to get better from here!
Amanda, I am so honored to be a small part of your amazing journey and I humbly thank you for choosing #Xcellence over mediocrity!
Keep that train of yours moving forward my champion! Hey if you need help, I am here for you also! http://FDACoach.biz


VLOG Episode #16 The Ten Mile Hike

So we went for a hike in the San Tan Mountain Regional Park on this day prepared for our normal 5-mile treck. We saw another trail that we’ve been wanting to try and we learned a lot about ourselves today because that hike turned into a 10-mile journey and all I can say is I am glad to be back home!
I must say, I loved the view of the San Tan Mountains and when you are out there, you realize just how small you are compared to the great outdoors.
It did seem like we were going to be out there forever, and the feeling was only made worse when I was not able to make it back in time to serve one of my fitness clients in the Mr. XL Smith Fitness Dungeon like originally planned!
But she understood, and we are back on track for next week.
If you are ever hiking in the San Tan Mountains, just be prepared with water and be sure to have some good shoes.  Like the kind made for hiking.
Mighty Mouse was out there dealing with sand (for about 3 miles worth) in her shoes but we are both back home and doing just fine.

It’s amazing what you can do when you don’t have a choice!

VLOG Episode #15 What I learned from Today

Hey guys, today was humbling.  What I learned from today is that I need to practice reading from a teleprompter and get better with the topic of science so I can turn out a quality product that can be used, and of course it’s something I am proud to add my name to!

Today was a day that I did not bring it 100% because I did not get all 10 scripts done!
Queen Creek Personal Trainer in actingNow am I depressed over this?  Will it stop me from pursuing more auditions?  Hell no!  In fact, it only serves to harden my resolve, put in some time to practice more and I will get them next time!
I am still glad that I was the one called back to do the job in the first place.  Again, there will be another day and by then, I will be that much better for it!
Oh I almost forgot.  Here is the other video I did right after I left the building!

VLOG Episode #14  San Tan Water Solutions

Okay if you are in the market for a reputable company to treat your hard water for your whole home, then there is no reason to look any further!
San Tan Water Solutions is the company I recommend.
When we made the move into our new home, my wife Annette Martin-Smith decided that we would have our home treated with soft water, and boy are we so happy we found these guys!
So I was already planning on using another company that I had found on the internet, and I was convinced that I would find a system to treat my whole home without using salt. Little did I know, that was going to be a huge mistake.
Grant with san tan water solutionsEnter my main man Grant.  So grant is another one of those humans that is just cooler than the other side of the pillow on a warm summer’s night.

As it turns out, he did NOT see himself selling water softer/treatment systems but after connecting with this company and attaching himself to the mission (more on that in a bit), Grant is very happy to educate the people he runs into and help add to the quality of life with this amazing system.
To make a long story short, thanks to Grant and San Tan Water Solutions, our whole home is protected, for years of soft water.
Now that we have this sytem in our home, we will experience:

  • better performing washing machine
  • we use less conditioner
  • skin feels silky smooth after showering
  • fewer water spots on shower door
  • the dishwasher does not need rinsing aid
  • no soap scum

San Tan Water Solutions Sign in front yardI could go on and on about how happy we are with this system, but don’t take our word for it alone.  These guys are highly rated with the BBB, and I think that’s a big deal for the 6 years they have been in business.
So if you are in the market for a great company, then be sure to check these guys out and tell them Mr. XL Smith sent you!
You won’t regret it!

Vlog Episode #13 – From Mind of Coach X

So I am very clear on my mission!  I am here to IMPACT – INSPIRE & IMPROVE the lives others and I know I am going to make a difference to at least one person before I expire!  That means I want you to be clear as to why I am here!
This video is an example of the quality questions I had to get into the habit of asking myself!  There was once a time in my life where I thought the world and everyone in it, owed something to ME.  Mad, bitter, and walking aroud with a chip on my shoulder blaming everyone else but myself.
As a result, I was the bitter one!  I was the frustrated one. I was the one at the bottom of the pool looking up at the party taking place without me.  All because I did not want to look into the mirror.
Now, I know better, so I do better and now it’s all about helping others avoid those pitfalls of life that I have already experienced so now you can learn from my mistakes!
So what about this video resonated with you?  Where are your habits taking you?  What choices are you making in your life and are they taking your higher, bringing you down, or are you just stuck with now advancment at all?
I am here to help you my friend!  So let me know if there is anything I can do in order to help you break yourself free from the mold of mediocrity, like I had to do myself!
Want social proof?
You may be able to find a few good reviews (fitness coaching) about me here and there (nutrition/life coaching)!
So now that you have seen some of my social proof, and you may be ready to take action, perhaps you want to sit down with me for an initial consultation!  Contact me here and let’s make it happen!
Anyway, let me get back to work of serving more people!  Remember, I am here if you need me!

I am so glad that we have opened up a new chapter in our lives with the move into San Tan Heights area within the San Tan Valley of Queen Creek.
We have officially re-joined the group of home-owners and it’s my intention to hit the ground running as my mission is to IMPACT – INSPIRE & IMPROVE the lives of others on a daily basis.

Insights & Confessions VLOG Episode #10

In this video, I am talking about the insight I gained while sitting quietly for 20 minutes on my front porch, at the new home in San Tan Heights Arizona. I get into my confession about being in my 20ies and 30ies and making everything about me.
Well after years of practicing mindfulness and meditations, I realize that life is much bigger than me. It’s much better to paddle through life with the current, instead of against it. I have learned to appreciate that if I go around thinking life, and the people in it owe me something, it would be an exercise in futility.
I now use meditation as my drug of choice because it’s good for anxiety, it’s good for kids to get into it too, it’s good for abundance and appreciation for what one does have, and if you add meditation music to the mix, it can be like a religious experience, if religion is your thing.
You can use meditation for all sorts of things and for me personally, meditation works way better than medication. Today I listened to a soundtrack that had binaural beat embedded and I do find it takes me to a whole new relaxed place, so for me, it works.
I don’t care if you use meditation as a pro, or even if you are a beginner, this stuff works if you let it. If you get into this, all you have to do is a little research to find what you might be looking for and so much more, or perhaps you want to start slow using the links below.
You are welcome.
Who knows, if the demand is there, I may even do a meditation class to help people get into this.
So maybe you want to give this a try for yourself? You have options!
1) You can always get your meditation on with me and I can help you with your journey (or maybe you can help me – who knows). http://FDACOACH.biz
2) Here is a resource in case you want to do it on your own!
3) Here is one more!
