Not a photo of mine, but thought it fit the post perfectly.
This week I received an email from a reader in which he asked why do I write under a pen name. He also claimed that by doing so I was trying to hide something. Am I real or am I fake?
Unlike my other posts I will try to keep this post short because I do not feel that I need to validate me choosing to write under a pen name. The only reason that I have chosen to write this article is to let you know the truth from me and not some 3rd party opinion.
In the beginning when I created this blog I wrote under my real name. Then I started getting messages on Facebook from random people most of which didn’t even have anything legitimate to say.
Once that happened I made the decision to write under a pen name that way I could protect the people who are close to me such as my family and friends. This blog is my domain and I share it with all of those who have a similar vision that I do.
I share it with people who want to better themselves.
I share it with people who are looking for a place to call home.
I share it for the people who want to rise from being a loser to being an Olympian
This is not a place that I want just anyone coming to that includes some of my family/friends as well. If you are a loser or someone who does not want more out of life then I ask that you kindly to leave at once.
But there is something that I am hiding….
I am just like you.
What does that mean?
I still bleed. I still go through heartbreak. I have my faults and weaknesses. I have days where I just want to give up and settle.
But guess what I don’t because I am on a mission. Since I am on a mission no matter what life throws my way I keep moving forward. My mindset is that I can have whatever I want if I put my mind to it.
As I sit here behind this computer screen and write out this article I have things going through my head. Currently I am building my newest E-Commerce store. It has been a learning-curve, but I absolutely love it. To me there is nothing better than having an idea and then bringing it into the light. Also, I am planning several trips. I am going to be flying out to London to see a good friend of mine and possibly even Bali to meet with some possible business prospects.
Another thing that is going through my head is what I need to do this weekend such as talk with a supplement supplier and how I can better reach my readers on this blog.
You see life is always moving forward whether you like it or not. Life is either progressing or going down hill. The choice is yours and yours only.
Yes I can point you in the right direction or one of my posts might be the thing that opens your eyes, but it is YOU that makes the decision.
But let me return to the original subject of this post. Not only do I choose to write through a pen name for privacy. But I also write through the name Sergie as a way to remove myself from my ego and write from the heart. It is from the heart that the truth comes out.
You can hate me or love me, but to be quite honest it does not mean anything to me.
I created this blog because I want to offer motivation, actionable advice, and to offer a place where like-minded people can come together. I do not have to run this blog. I could delete it right at this very moment, but I refuse to because this is my medium to reach you.
As time progresses I will open up new ways of communication.

I love writing and at times this blog is a way to keep me sane as I constantly have ideas racing through my head. This post was a little longer than I had originally intended, but I wanted to be open and honest with you.
