We asked our community why they felt drawn to the Rogues Den, our insiders team room for those that the Rogue mindset, here are some of our favourite responses.

 I'm here to expand my comfort zone. Every man dies but not every man truly lives. Since I met Logan I've jumped out of 2 airplanes and started section-hiking the Appalachian Trail.

 Looking for and found a way to bridge the gap. I never served as I was too fat and lazy. I've never met a better group of people. I'm able to be myself and offer any insight I may have while learning more and more.

-Brad Raymo

 In the last several years I've undergone a change of perspective. The things that are important, and what I want to do in life. In order to accomplish my goals I've needed to identify resources and being included in this community is part of that. 
I train for life. The life I'm living, and the life I want. That means learning skill sets, and mindsets that will serve me. I believe the knowledge I'm looking for resides here.

Personally I enjoy this group for the non bs factor and ability for members to disagree appropriately and provide honest feedback.. Plus the fun shit

-Rob Larson

 To go rogue is about living life not just being "alive" . It is being different to the rest of the herd, willing to get up of my ass and live, to seek out adventure , to learn and better myself.

It's 0300. I just spent an hour alternating between the pool and hot tub at the Lodge in Callaway Gardens. The rest of the guests hit the racks hours ago and few will rally at 0600 with me. This is my first time at Callaway and I will probably not make it back for another 40 years. Why waste time in bed. Drink Jack, Crown, hit the hot tub, then share ridiculous roguery.

Going rogue is like a route you travel that others may consider impassable or treacherous, and although there's an easier route that would surely get you to your destination, the rouge route will too. The difference is, the way of the rogue will have scenery, some laughs, cause you to break a sweat, and maybe even scare you a little. The other route, well, it's just boring, and no one ever talks about boring.

The Survival Tree
The Survival Tree

April 12, 2018

A lot of people have asked me about how they could increase their survivability in an active shooter situation. The reality is sometimes you can’t win and that’s something you should be training for. Train for the worst day of your life and hopefully when it happens it’s nowhere near the level you trained for. If you’re lucky, your preparations will have paid off. However, the reality that you should always keep in the worst case scenario box is that you will not win. Get comfortable with that monster and snuggle up. You’re going to be spending a lot of time together. When you understand and embrace the fear, it allows you to rationally respond. In some fortunate moments, you will recognize the monster you’ve become comfortable with.

Self Over Brand

March 15, 2018

I read somewhere recently that people put their faith in brands now over more traditional things.  Looking at my social media feeds and several news outlets this becomes very clear.  Not only do people get upset when they find out their favorite brands don’t fit their social expectations but they pay homage to brands for their personal successes.  Somewhere along the way we lost sight of the fact that brands are there for business but without the customer there is no brand.  Examining the idea of such things can be taboo but I like taboo so lets do this.

Changing your path

February 22, 2018

There was recently a statement that I read from former Facebook employee that said something to the lines of people are mistaking popularity for truth. Perhaps once upon a time this was for the most part true but the days of the popular opinion being accurate are gone. This leads both sides of an argument to utilize not only inaccurate data for decision making but readily gives the other side flaming arrows to fire back. Unfortunately along with the truth exiting stage left it took civility along for the trip. The study was abandoned for the cave by men and the hard choices are left to what will gain the individual the most digital likes. The currency of doing the right thing has dropped in value like a third world currency in the middle of a violent revolution.
