The purpose of this site is to share my life with the people I love, which, if you’re reading this, includes you. The goal is for you to be encouraged, inspired, and better equipped to live life to the fullest as you engage with the different opportunities and content here. My commitment to you is to share as transparently as I can muster the courage for. I thought about using the next section to write a great biography about myself in the third-person. Justin Minott probably has the best facial hair ever… and so on. But then I said to myself, “Self, get over yourself.” I’m not sure when, if ever, is the right time to write a biography in the third-person on your own site!
Here’s a little bit about me: I love God; I love myself; I love my wife, Natalie; and I love humans. I take big chances and I get big rewards. I live life with the brakes off because I’m not afraid of a bumpy journey. I’m committed to living fully; I refuse to simply exist.
The last name, Minott, is pronounced like “why not” except it starts with an ‘M’. Usually when someone says something can’t be done, I answer with “why not?” And then I brainstorm ways to get it done. I believe that anything is possible. That sounds cliché, but unlike most people I actually believe it so I think that makes it un-cliché… who knows. My first name, Justin, means ‘justice’ and I know that my mother heard from God when she named me. Also, some people know me by the last name ‘Kowalewsky’. It’s a long story that I will likely share at some point. And I do apologize for any confusion that has caused along the way.
Most importantly, I’m a son of God because of Jesus the Christ. The reason I am alive is to love God by engaging the fullness of who I am towards advancing His Kingdom, for His glory. To fulfill that personal mission statement I’ve been blessed with the opportunity to do a lot of different things and work with incredible people that are changing the world.
Most recently, I took on the role of CEO of Good Coffee where I help people make a delicious difference by drinking life changing coffee. I also have the privilege of doing motivational speaking and leadership development with Level UP: Coaching. I love preaching the Word of God, and I love living and experiencing it even more than I love talking about it.
If you noticed, my bio has mostly to do with ‘who I am’. Many people find their identity in what they do. That’s backwards. What you do doesn’t define you. Rather, who you are informs what you do. Find out why you are on this planet and then find ways to do something about that.
And make sure you visit Natalie and I’s blog site to see our marriage adventure: www.theminotts.com
That’s all for now.
