So I am on the road again and my traveling buddy has grown his beard 8″ and is becoming a daily Instagram hit.
My good friend Michael from Chicago started growing his facial hair about a little over a year ago. Below I will show a before and after. As we traveled around America over the last year I watched his facial hair go from stubbles into a bush.
I noticed he started using this new trend called beard oil which is like a conditioner for your beard hair. It definitely gave a shine and he says makes a huge difference in his look and skin underneath his facial hair. At first I was always joking on him as I watched him apply this beard balm every morning in the mirror. It was quite funny to see how this product has became a trend not only to the average day bearded man but also to top celebrities like Ryan Gosling, George Clooney, Brad pit and Ben Affleck.
Now Michael has his fans on his Instagram account following him and watching him document with images his beard growing experience. He even show his grooming kits and tips that he has learned over the year. He now has over 7 thousand active followers on social media.
Im including this cool bear tutorial video below for you to understand more of what my friend does each morning to look like a bearded celeb.
Remember where you heard about this beard phenomenon first. Thats right at RTA-RIDE because I am telling you people are going to be growing mustaches and facial hair all over now and they will be looking where to buy beard oil, grooming kits, products and mustache wax.
I recently asked Mike how long he plans on growing his beard out but he said in another month or so he plans on trimming it at least 2 or 3 inches but he said he will continue to use his products daily and grooming daily. He also has special brushes and tips he says when applying and brushing the hair out.
Organic oils are also what he prefers and he says that quality is always taken in consideration. You can find great deals online and in certain stores like Walmart. I have been friends with Michael for about 10 years now I never seen him so obsessed about something other then traveling and out door adventures. I guess this new look will help keep him warm when we go to Colorado for winter skiing and snow boarding.
We also soon plan on putting GoPro videos of our hiking and tours on our main social sites for all of our followers to view. We have great times and believe it will not only give you a look at some amazing places but you can learn about a few places almost as like a live review.
We are always stopping in bars, restaurants, stores, gas stations, and going on adventurous hikes, snorkeling, mountain climbing and much much more. We also have many great and funny times around our nightly camp fires.
I have been getting a lot of emails asking how do we all travel so much and make money? The answer is quite simple. We invested in the right businesses at the right time and have many assets and streams of income that help us live the lifestyle we do. Maybe my next post will be a few tips on investing in yourself and business.
Thanks for reading and remember do what you love to do.
