JOSHUA, FOUNDER & DIRECTOR:
We are all looking for our own piece of heaven here on earth. To me, that means finding something that makes you happy. Something that makes you feel energetic and keeps you looking forward to getting up in the morning, yet still challenging, constantly pushing you toward a better version of yourself.
Everyone has their thing. My thing, is being outside. Sun, rain, snow, sleet, doesn’t matter—a day spent outdoors is a good day in my book. The great outdoors is full of endless possibilities and has a little something for everyone. I get such a feeling of exhilaration when I’m adventuring, balanced by a profound peace of mind.
Exploring way off the beaten trail, knowing so few people have traveled where I am, is a cool feeling—a feeling many people have sought after for thousands of years. The search for new discovery has driven man to all corners of the globe, beyond their comfort zone, when it would have been so much easier to just stay put.
But as so many have said, it’s not the destination that matters, it’s the journey. Often, when I go adventuring, I don’t necessarily have a destination. Instead, I enjoy the experience as it comes.
I am from Montana. A state known for its expansive sky’s and breathtaking mountains. Growing up, rural Montana was just like the stories; gravel roads and rolling hills with the country general-store over 2 miles away. My friends and I would find a way to pack three or more of us on the one working bike—pegs, handle bars…it was all fair game. We would pool our change together for ice cream and spend the day soaking up the sun at the river. All summer we would do this, either that or exploring the hills behind our houses. There’s something to be said for the simplicity that will keep kids entertained.
This is where Psyched Life® began. Running a business, doing what I am passionate about, I’ll never work a day in my life.
It has always been a dream of mine to own my own business. Watching this business come together and grow has been an adventure in itself. Looking forward, the possiblities are limitless. I am so exited to create a brand with quality products that people can really count on.
Its not about the money. If I can build a successful business and spend the majority of my time outdoors; giving back to the environment; exploring; pursuing adventure; designing, testing, and delivering products that you will love; then I am successful—regardless of profits. All I need in life is a reliable vehicle, camping gear and food. There’s far too many beautiful places on this earth to stay indoors, to stay in your hometown, or to stay in your home country.
Get out and explore the world in whatever way you can. The perspective you will gain is priceless. Travel, whether a local hiking trip or an epic adventure halfway around the world, is something you never regret. It makes us grow, it helps us expand. This is a huge part of the Psyched Life® mentality. We must push ourselves and allow the world to help us grow.
