This is what a true modern day cowboy looks like.
He becomes an entrepreneur at the ripe age of 28.
He launches a business, first as magazine. When he gets inquiries about selling the magazine–he turns them down. Then, he goes into the Wild West, a.k.a the internet, in a time when people were still unsure of how to truly make a profitable business on the internet.
He deals with the hardships of being a cowboy such as rejection, failure, sleepless nights. Defies the odds—when majority of business fail after five years.
He rides his bike to work 365 days out of the year and is best friend to a rescue dog named Redford.
He lets people write at elephant journal about any topic that inspires them, changes lives, improves the environment and appeals to a more enlightened community.
Life is not about how fast you run, or how high you climb, but how well you bounce. ~ Cowboy proverb
Every path has some puddles. ~ Cowboy Proverb
“A man is not born a cowboy; he becomes one.” ~ Cowboy Proverb
I never met Waylon, but I’ve met true Buddhists. Waylon Lewis is a true Buddhist and elephant journal is a product of his humor, compassion and hard work.
Thanks for letting us write for elephant journal.
