What’s up Team!?

Click here for the latest episode of The MYC Study

This week’s episode is with Austen Lane, former NFL player turned MMA fighter who is competing in Dana White’s Contender Series coming up.

Thanks for listening!

Sorry for the informality of our release this week. Keep reading if you’d like a little Gollon Squad personal flavor for the week, haha. If not, go right on ahead to the podcast. Cheers!

My wife and I are actually in IRELAND currently! It’s our honeymoon… and I promised her that I wouldn’t spend much time ‘working’ (if you can call it that) on the podcast, though, she’s always encouraging me to spend as much time as I need on it!

I scheduled this one out ahead of time. I’ve been doing the notes and writing from a splendid seaside restaurant in Glendore and just up the cliffs a wee-bit in Glengarriff at our Bed & Breakfast over some Irish Coffee. Here are a few pictures (not that you care to know much about my personal life, but nonetheless, the beauty is awe-inspiring and worth sharing for anyone who has the travel itch. I’ll make a blog post about our trip when we return).

Love you all, thanks for listening and reading 🙂





I have re-written this section countless times. This is the crisis of our generation, defining one's self in an 'about me' box knowing that 95% of our peers will log that as 'who we are' without ever speaking to us, because reading the long-version is just too cumbersome for our over-crowded, busy lives. // In short: I'm a polymath with a hyperactive mind, curious about and fascinated by the complexities of, basically, everything. I'm firmly committed to living a life of "areté"—omnipresent excellence, and my mottos are 'making the best of this life' (Mt. Botl), and "Do it now or forever wish you had". // I had a 'famed' basketball stint (captaining the 2014 Mercer team that upset Duke in NCAA Tourney + winning a Nat'l Title as a coach). I quit the sports industry all-together, cold turkey, soon after. I had an existential crisis with 'glory' and 'meaning' and other challenging thoughts revolving around how many hours (90+/week) I was spending trying to 'win games'. // Since 2017, I've been in pursuit of several entrepreneurial ideas and am educating myself on a few new areas of focus. The following is a condensed list of the countless curiosities and industries that I've explored, worked in, or studied the last 3 years (of which I will need to choose 1-3 of to focus on sooner than later). Writing, Podcasting, Teaching—Adjunct College Professor, Public Speaking + Workshops, Building & Construction, Sustainable Real Estate Development—Industrial + Urban Repurposing in particular, Negotiation, Marketing—Branding/design/communications, Woodwork, Gardening, Permaculture-based farming and homesteading, Psychology, Industrial Engineering—Process Improvement + UX consulting, Project Management, Renewable Energy, & Executive Coaching for (select) clients focusing on leadership, personal brand + career development, health habits, productivity, networking, and communication skills. Yes, all of it, and since I sleep minimally, and my mind races like an ostrich all day and night, I know a fair bit about each of those topics. I have an obsession with learning. I'm always looking to connect and have conversations with folks, so, hit me up. I hope my work brings you joy, value, a challenge, or a ripe perspective. Much love, Jakob
