Whenever a job application ask me what talents I have, I really have to hold back from telling them that I know all the words to every song from the Wu-Tang Forever album. One day that’s going to be a recognized talent. I can play Contra really good, that needs to be approved. I can get an extra couple of cheese sticks when I order six. That’s a talent too that has a tasty reward if marinara sauce is involved. I got another talent, I can eat a cheese stick without marinara sauce.

“I’ve been a personal trainer, a wild land firefighter, a football coach, a miner, and – for two months to help out a buddy – a bounty hunter,
I like to experience different things in life, and if you look at all those jobs, one thing they have in common is they all entail hard work. I take a pride in being a hard worker.
People ask me what is more dangerous or scary, being a UFC fighter or a bounty-hunter – but the scariest job I’ve ever done is mining.
That was a very dangerous experience. It wasn’t an operational mine, but it was climbing up and down ladders that go straight down the shaft a couple of thousand feet and the ladders were all old and breaking – that was easily the most dangerous job I ever had.
You would climb on to the ladder and hope the next few minutes went well…”
