That’s me!

You may not know me yet, but hopefully you soon will.  I’m Craig Adam, a 30 year old guy form the UK. 

Instead of telling you about WHO I am.

I’m going to focus on my WHY.

Why have I started this blog?

What inspired me to launch TheMansetWorld.com

Why does The ManSet World exist and how will it serve you?

I’ve created The ManSet World blog for a very good reason.

In my 30 years on this rock, life has been both incredible (most of the time), and a bit shit (a hand full of times). 

For the shit times, I’m lucky to have discovered self development and mindset ‘stuff’ from a relatively early age. In fact I had just turned 18 when I told my Parents I had a one way ticket to the other side of the World and I wasn’t sure when I was coming back.

It was this journey that got me into self development, and the idea of creating a ‘more refined version’ of yourself. It opened up so many possibilities to me and it was exciting.

Great! So how is this story different to anyone else who enjoys self development?

This story doesn’t have a definitive happy ending, as you’re about to find out.

Rewind 2 years ago and the story would have almost been complete.

Almost.

I started an E-commerce business in December 2015, and it went EXTREMELY well, very quickly. In fact I turned over $20K in the first month of trading.

It was insane! And the results only got better from there.

I grew the thing to multiple 5 figures per month, and life was good. Really fucking good!

(Here are two screen shots from my phone. The first photo is from month 1 in December 2015, and then the second is from May 2016.)

We had a 1 year old son, and another on the way, and we were moving to a 4 bed family home.

I had full control over how I lived my days.

I’d work for however long was necessary, then I’d go surfing or hang with Lydia, (my better half), and our baby boy.

My only gripe was that I didn’t have anyone to share my successes with, besides Lydia of course, but she was super busy raising our 1 year old son. (Parenting is a full time job!)

So….

One of my best mates showed interest in what I was doing, and decided to invest in the business because it was going so well, I wanted to share the journey with a business partner who I could trust.

He was happy. I was happy.

Life carried on being amazing.

Then I fucked it up.

The business took a slight dip in sales.

I wasn’t worried. It was a young business. Teething problems. We could resolve it.

Then sales got even worse and our cashflow was all over the shop.

I had to do something fast.

I borrowed a load of money to supplement the cashflow issues I was having so I could restock our inventory and revive the sales again.

Then after a difficult language barrier, the relationship broke down between us and our best Chinese supplier. They wanted more cash. We couldn’t give it. We didn't have it!

We had freight companies to pay.

Returns of damaged stock.

3rd party warehouses unnecessarily holding our stock and not delivering it to our fulfilment centres.

It was a downward spiral.

No matter how hard I tired to put a positive “mindsety” spin on it, I ultimately knew, the business was doomed.

Without a steady income I was fucked.

A young family with another baby on the way. Bills to pay. Cars to run. Food to buy.

You get the picture...

I was forced to get a job.

I went back to work as a builders labourer which is what I was doing before my business took off.

It’s hard graft and doesn’t pay very well. But it was put on a plate and I took it.

Besides, I don't have any qualifications that would allow me to walk into another job.

I was desperate.

I was grateful for the work and the income, but it was a long way away from what I had planned for myself and my family.

My tail was well and truly between my legs and I felt defeated.

To be brutally honest - life was a bit shit for a while.

I’d fucked up.

But I wouldn’t admit it.

I burried my head in the sand and pretended everything was ok.

It wasn’t.

I was ignoring phone calls from my debtors. The interest was racking up. I was totally in denial of how bad things had gotten.

So what happened?

Im saying all of this is past tense.

However…

This is where I’m currently at!

The present day.

After around 18 months of wallowing in self pity. Blaming just about everybody else besides myself as to why I lost the business and all of the material, superficial bullshit that I had in my life.

I’ve turned a full 360.

I’m back!

Broke. Poor. Skint.

But more determined than ever before!

I’ve finally taken full responsibility, come to terms with the fact that I was a complete fuckwit and made a few simple numerical errors when handling large cashflows.

And besides watching my family suffer the consequences of my mistakes, having large debts looming over me, and the fact that I’ve lost my mates investment in the business (which is the thing eating me up the most, besides watching my family suffer)

Weirdly I’m ok with it.

Why?

Because I’m on a mission.

Back to square one and feeling fresh to start again. Warts (debts) and all…..

What I realised is that, although yes, I was a bit of an idiot….

…To generate almost $20k in sales from scratch in just one month is actually a strong effort.

I should be proud of that.

And I am.

And then to scale a business to $250,000 in the first year is also a good fucking effort.

(yea yea… ego massage, I know. I need it right now, ok!! You’ve just read how dumb I was, lets turn this story around!)

Which brings me to this blog.

My ‘WHY’ for The ManSet World.

It takes a certain ManSet (Mindset, exclusively for Men) to generate the level of success that I reached before it came crashing down. And I acclaim this success to my time spent immersing myself in self development and mindset mastery.

Something I’m still extremely passionate about. More now than ever before!

So I’m going to be using this blog as a platform to inspire any Fellas out there who know that there is more to life.

Who know that the possibilities are literally endless.

I want to enlighten you to these possibilities and to motivate you to achieve success.

I want to inspire as many Men who are in the same mindset hole that I’ve recently been in, and crawled out of, and get them away from the notion of scarcity, fear and disbelief.

I don’t want you to settle for less than you deserve, and to give up on your dreams.

I wont let that happen for you!

I’m going to be proof that you can drastically change your situation for the better in a very short time frame.

So instead of some dude who claims to have all the answers but has never actually been in the trenches and done it for real, I’m going to admit that I don't have all the answers, but I'm going to hustle my ass off and get the life back that I was happily living in 2016.

And I'm going to do my best to help as many of my readers to do the same too.

That is my ULTIMATE mission.

I'm starting from nothing.

In fact - I'm starting from less than nothing!

And if I can do this, then so can you too!
