Logan Stout: Entrepreneur in Leadership and Empowerment

From the beginning, Logan Stout has always had a winning mentality. Whether it’s baseball, business or community leadership, Logan Stout instilled in himself the mindset and passion to succeed in whatever he does, including motivating others around him to do the exact same thing.

Born and raised in Richardson, Texas, Logan Stout focused his achievements on excelling in high school, where he served on the Student Athletic Council, and as a junior and senior earned the title of MVP of his high school basketball team. As it would turn out, basketball would be the star student’s second sport, as Mr. Stout would find even greater success with his passion for baseball. Mr. Stout would go on to attend Panola College, winning many prestigious awards in college baseball and eventually earning a career playing professional baseball. Mr. Stout played for the Forth Worth Cats and appeared in 17 World Series events, either as a player or coach. With all of his success surrounding baseball, Mr. Stout would give back to the sport, coaching at Dallas Baptist University, while also serving in the university’s youth ministry.

Although, Logan Stout was blessed with the gifts to exceed in every level of baseball, his education wouldn’t play a backseat to his athletic accomplishments. At Panola College, Mr. Stout received a degree in business, and later he would earn a degree in psychology from the University of Dallas.

Success in sports and education is a powerful combination. After his professional career in baseball, Mr. Stout would use his previous success to embark on a new challenge, becoming an entrepreneur. Mr. Stout always exhibited leadership qualities throughout his college and professional tenure, so transitioning into the field of business
with his skill set, proved to be more than a worthy match. Mr. Stout has always understood that having physical, mental and spiritual health is the key to achieving anything, and he wanted to invest in a business that would turn this vision into a tangible asset. From his vision, he would develop a line of healthcare products called ID Life. Founded in 2014, ID Life is a health wellness company that manages health and dietary supplements, pills, and shakes.

Mr. Stout utilized his unique leadership qualities to form a marketing strategy tailored made for ID Life. The company innovated a new system that would combine free personalized assessments, then according to the assessment results, would match customers with the proper set of ID health products, effectively targeting the customer’s specific needs. ID Life has revolutionized the health and fitness industry, generating billions of dollars in revenue, and in 2016 being named one of top 100 MLM Companies in the world.

Logan Stout’s entrepreneurial endeavors don’t stop with ID Life, it just opened up more opportunities to empower others to succeed like him. Mr. Stout wrote a book called “Stout Advice”, based on his winning strategies and formulas, that have helped him succeed throughout his life. “Experience is not the great teacher”, Mr. Stout advises, “evaluated experience is the great teacher.”

In addition to publishing “Stout Advice”, Mr. Stout also founded and is the CEO of the Dallas Patriots, a baseball organization, that develops and mentors kids ages 6-18. The Dallas Patriots is all about giving the youth the training, guidance and opportunities needed to achieve their goals. The organization has done just that, as many of the participants of the Dallas Patriots go on to play collegiate baseball or get drafted into the MLB.

These days, you can still find Logan Stout in Texas with his loving wife and 2 children, coaching, mentoring, ministering, and empowering the community. Whether it’s through speaking engagements or social media, Mr. Stout is passionate about providing valuable and powerful advice for anyone seeking self improvement.

His empowering efforts haven’t gone unnoticed, as Mr. Stout can be seen on television regularly, and was named “Man of the Year” in the Philadelphia Life Magazine. When asked about the one habit that makes him productive and successful as an entrepreneur, Mr. Logan stated, “I start my day the same way every day and that’s feeding my mind. I believe thoughts lead to actions, actions lead to habits, and habits lead to results. It’s the foundation of my mentoring business at Logan Stout.com.”

Certainly one the entire Bay area can all be proud of.

Former Tampa Bay Player Attacked By A Shark

If you are familiar with the movie Jaws, then you probably know how dangerous sharks can be if they bite you in the water. One former Tampa Bay Buccaneers football player had an encounter with a shark that can be said to be taken out from the Jaws movie. In case you are wondering, he did survive to tell the tale.

Warren Sapps, who played as a defensive tackle for the Tampa Bay Bucanners, got bit by a shark while he was lobstering in the waters off Florida. Fortunately for Sapps, the bite was relatively minor. The incident occurred near the Florida Keys while Sapps was lobstering or catching lobsters.

Sapps is an NHL hall of famer who Tampa Bay Bucanners fans will remember and respect through time. Despite getting bit by a shark, the former NFL player did not let the incident bring him down or stop his lobster hunting adventure. Warren put gauze on the bite and even laughed it off. He even posted a photograph of the shark bite on twitter joking the shark got a piece of me. Sapps, who was in good spirits, then posted a photograph of himself catching lobster. The shark may have gotten a piece of him, but he had caught some delicious lobster for dinner he continued to joke!

I don’t think I would be able to continue diving after getting bit by a shark. It takes a lot of guts and grits to keep going after that. Then again, I am not a former NFL defensive tackle player. Warren Sapps showed that even when the going gets tough or you get bit by a shark, it pays off to have some humor and to make light of the situation.

So why did the shark bite former NFL player Warren Sapps? It seems the sharks also prey on the lobsters in that area. Another more hilarious theory is that the shark was coming in to tackle Warren Sapps but failed and managed to only bite him instead.

South Florida defeated by undefeated UCF

Despite the narrow defeat, the University of South Florida’s star quarterback Quinton Flowers ruled the field. On national television and before his fellow college students and alumni, Flowers set multiple USF records including single-game passing yards and total-yardage records.

Flowers faced off against the undefeated University of Central Florida Knights. Quinton Flowers is becoming known for being a runner more than a thrower, but managed to throw for 500 yards. UCF was the nation’s top scoring offense, prior to kickoff. Flowers managed to pull of some great plays despite some questionable coaching by Charlie Strong. This is Flowers’ last collegiate football game. Flowers has not said whether he will enter the draft.

Flowers performance over the year was incredible to sports analysts, some noted that if this was a mid-season game, he may have been considered as a heisman contender. However, he now faces a mid-level bowl game either in Annapolis, Maryland or Birmingham, Alabama. Quinton Flowers managed to out-gain the Knights 605 yards to UCF’s 533 yards.

Questions are now focused on Coach Charlie Strong and whether he will remain at University of South Florida. His playcalling has been questioned many times during the season and has led to some major upsets including their defeat against UCF. A victory against UCF would have put them one step closer to being in the Peach Bowl. UCF’s victory marks the first time in program history of finishing unbeaten in regular season.

Despite Flowers’ strong performance, the game came down to special teams. Near the end of the game, UCF’s Mike Hughes found an opening and ran for a 95-yard touchdown. In only 53 seconds, UCF took an eight-point lead. Flowers’ has also been a positive influence on University of South Florida, both on and off the field. The future of Flowers’ has yet to be determined.

Among those scheduled to attend are former NFL head coach Herman Edwards, Emmy Award winner Beasley Reece and Sean Cavanaugh, the Chief of Radiation Oncology at The Cancer Treatment Centers of America. There will also be events in Chicago and Phoenix.

Cavanaugh notes that screening can potentially stop prostate cancer. The Cancer Treatment Centers of America are excited to work with the NFL in order to increase awareness about different screening techniques and treatment options. Cavanaugh wants men to be aware that a less than normal screening does not mean that the cancer has developed.

Men can schedule their screening through Prostate Pep Talk. The testing will be done at LabCorp’s service centers. The NFL and CTCA are confident that their partnership will help improve the lives of men throughout the United States.

Based out of Florida, the Cancer Treatment Centers of America are a group of hospitals that treat patients who have been diagnosed with cancer. CTCA uses different treatment options, such as radiation and chemotherapy.

Talos Energy

Talos to the future.

It has been almost a century since a foreign private entity has drilled in Mexican waters, but now it is occurring due to Mexico’s new initiative into inviting in foreign companies. This feat has been accomplished by joint efforts by Talos Energy, Premier oil and Mexico’s own Sierra Oil and Gas. Mexico’s oil and gas industries were nationalized in the early 1900s, and only national operations have drilled in Mexico since then.

Drilling will occur in the state of Tobasco where offshore wells are estimated to contain anywhere from 100 million to a half billion barrels of crude. The drilling operation will range above $15 million to achieve and take approximately three months to tap. The three company coalition gained the rights to be the first non national drilling operation in Mexican waters in the first round of bidding that Mexico offered to private interests. According to very prominent geologists, the reserve has a high probability of being reached and delivering estimated amounts. Talos will operate the drilling operation and has received a 35 percent stake in doing so, and Sierra and Premier have 49 percent and 25 percent respectively.

Houston-based oil and gas company, Talos is a subsidiary of Helix Energy Solutions Group Inc. Their Gulf of Mexico holdings are encased in a subsidiary termed ERT. The Gulf of Mexico holdings averaged over 16,000 barrels of oil per day in a recent 30 day measure. ERT also has royalty interests in oil company Wang.

Houston is the oil and gas hub of America, and Talos is a private upstream oil and gas company situated in an enormously advantageous position to further increase its favorable holdings with the acquisition and exploitation of oil and gas properties located in Gulf of Mexico and around other properties on the Gulf Coast.
