“I dare you, who think life is humdrum, to become involved. I dare you who are weak to become strong; you who are dull to be sparkling; you who are slaves to be kings.”

- William Danforth, Author of “I Dare You!”

Who is A.J. Yager?

A Letter From The Desk of A.J. Yager…

Hi there, my name is A.J. Yager…

Welcome to my personal blog which is simply your portal to all my projects, passions, thoughts, life hacks and shared knowledge dedicated to helping you WIN in business, MASTER technology, and LIVE a healthier life!

I just want us to have an on going conversation… a conversation about extraordinary results… things that excite me, lessons learned in life and business up to this point (especially the failures and mistakes), as well as marketing, start-ups, self-mastery, and health/fitness optimization.

“I love to influence the best in people… I believe that entrepreneurs are the unsung heroes of the world and that greatness lies in all of us.”

As I see it, life should be lived to its fullest. Each day we are given a new start, a new fresh 24 hours. Every minute is a magnificent opportunity. Maybe you don’t see exactly what I’m talking about right now. Maybe things aren’t “right” in your life. Maybe it is even worse and there seems to be no hope.

I don’t know your situation at this moment, however, but I do know that with the help of this blog you can create, from this point on, the life that you want to live with happiness, joy, love, passion, energy, health and wealth.

You can leave behind your current situations, issues, struggles, and disbeliefs. I do know that you have within you all of the potential for the success that you want and need, NOW! I’m here to help you on this journey.

I will be sharing the most powerful must-read books for life and business and will give you actionable articles, videos, and podcasts that you can apply to your life easily. After all, what is the point of learning if you don’t apply it.

Here is a taste of what you will discover:

  • How to get from idea to execution; whether you just want an extra $1K per month or you want to build a large scale business.
  • Cut through the clutter in life and how to focus on what is the most important.
  • Overcome feelings of overwhelm
  • Achieve better results in less time and get more productivity from your work.
  • Saying goodbye to technology problems has never been easier! Make technology work for you… not burden or confuse you: Learn the technology you should completely avoid at all costs (less is more) and what apps, tools, and programs you definitely need in your life and business.
  • Finally; dial down the stress and stay on track.
  • What you put in your body DOES matter. How, when, and what to eat for maximum fat loss, brain power and energy throughout the day.
  • Master what matters to you and achieve extraordinary results in every area of your life!
  • And much much more…

The Mentor Factor: Grow Your Life Through Accelerated Wisdom

I am pretty much an open book and wear my heart on my sleeve (thanks mom). My story is one of success and failure but I haven’t achieved anything on my own, no one and I repeat no one is self-made. My journey has been unique.

Fact is, I have had the pleasure of knowing and learning from 61 mentors and counting (yes, I have kept track). These mentors range from multi-billionaires, badass entrepreneurs, leaders, dedicated writers, poets, tech geniuses, adventurers and many more types. I will share with you the combination of what I learned from this in-depth collection of mentors and tried-and-true experience in my own business and life.



A.J. Yager

Again, welcome to my site and I want to leave you with one of my favorite poems my grandfather shared with me when I was just a boy.(my favorite part is in bolded Orange):

Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.

In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds and shall find me unafraid.

It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.

– William E. Henly, Invictus Poem
