Creator (noun) cre·a·tor:  a person or thing that brings something into existence. synonyms: author, writer, designer, maker, producer, entrepreneur, etc.

The mission of New Inceptions is to provide reanimated Creators from around the world with the community and resources they need to thrive and build outstanding lives through work that matters not only to them, but possibly the rest of the world. When in the community, those individuals, called Renegades, pledge not only to support one another, but to also give a positive atmosphere to those that are in their daily lives.

In order to support that community, New Inceptions provides materials (blog, podcast, etc.), online forums, and coaching focused on improving self awareness, mindset, relationships, overall fitness, and personal branding. Ideally, we want to help our members move from being stuck in a job they dread going to, to becoming a business leader and expert in an industry they’re passionate about AND living a life they’re proud of.

JC Preston – Entrepreneurial Aficionado and Creative Tech Engineer

Bio

Hey, I’m JC. John for short. The pretty gal in front is my hot wife, Maria.

We’re just your typical married couple from Indiana. While I’m the Chief Education Officer and founder of New Inceptions, Maria really is the behind the scenes driver and my better half. She holds me accountable daily and whenever I have self doubts creep in, she obliterates them with ease.

Personally, I’ve helped young geeks, leaders, and professionals level up in all aspects of their lives. In the past I’ve taught classrooms of students and occasionally coached 1 on 1. Today I focus more on informing and connecting members of the Renegade Community.

Maybe you’re here because you see people around you struggling with their goals in life. Perhaps you’re struggling with your work life yourself and you don’t know what your next step is. You feel that you’re having a quarter life crisis (or even a mid-life crisis – no age discrimination here!) and you’re stuck in a rut.

Maybe you just want to become more aware of the world that’s around you and figure out what’s really going on.

Whatever you’re here for, thank you for sticking around.

JC’s Story

Throughout my life I’ve always considered myself normal. Most of it, I was an academic. I always wanted to be a teacher, but I wasn’t sure about what I wanted to teach.  I’ve had so many interests in life, so many things that I’m good (not great) at… it was hard to focus on just one thing.

I feel that I’m a rather well-rounded person. A jack of all trades. Maybe you can relate.

In 2008, I came to the realization that being a part of academia as a career wasn’t for me. Just like Corporate America, Academia is an Ivory Tower as well. If you’re not willing to play by their rules, then you’re not going to get far.

There’s nothing like realizing that a past dream of yours isn’t exactly your dream anymore.

In 2009, I graduated with a Masters in Organizational Leadership with a focus in Entrepreneurship.

Great. What now? Do I make use of my undergrad in electrical engineering or do something else?

To make a long story short, for the next couple of years I tried to keep lying to myself that I was a formal academic – teaching at Ivy Tech as an Algebra Instructor.

I got a couple of things from that experience:

  • An awareness of how much people’s attitudes towards life can vary. There are competitive people and passive people. Some people are trying to get somewhere in life, others are just letting the current take them wherever.
  • How important it is to do something that you have a passion in as a career. Am I good at math? Yes. Am I decent at teaching it? Yes. Do I want to? No.
    Some people have higher levels of tolerance of doing things they don’t have a passion for. They tolerate their job daily. Is that in any way ideal? Of course not. Keep looking until you find that something!
  • How to get over over-thinking things. Life isn’t as hard as many of us competitive types make it out to be. Everyone begins as a newbie at whatever they’re interested in doing. Hell, I was a forever alone-er until I started serial dating just for the heck of it. Quickly thereafter, I turned a friendship into a spouse. (Which, by the way, is the way it should be. Most of society says “date first, become friends second”. If you want to play the relationship lottery, do it that way. I don’t know one person that that has successfully worked out for.)

In 2013, I made the jump and got my training wheels in small business with America Multi-Sport. I still continue to be the media coordinator for the company, but as of 2015, I’m transitioning to focusing on New Inceptions.

Why Start New Inceptions?

Probably just like you, I’ve heard or seen plenty of success in my life. Some of that success is direct. Other success I’ve lived indirectly through helping others figure out their path. Either way, I’ve come to find out that we truly can accomplish anything that we put our minds to and become a master at any level we desire.

One thing that’s different between when I was in school vs what I know now, is that I now know my strengths and weaknesses. Which I recommend you figure out as soon as possible.

Based on several sources, I’ve realized that my biggest strength is helping people to learn how to connect with ideas and people in their life. Not only do I want to explore the unknown aspects of life, but I want to take others along for the ride.

Next thing? Let’s get you out of the Matrix and see if we can make you a Jedi at life.

And finally, please read this carefully:

I don’t consider myself a guru of anything (as you can tell above). What I learn and report about are not secrets. But the kinds of things I’ll be teaching might seem a little out there at first. In fact, you might just downright disagree with it. My 25 year old self just might too. But that’s what makes life interesting. We’re all different… and we’re constantly finding out more about who we are and what we believe is important.

Most of society is geared towards making us think as followers. I’m going to strive to help you get out of that mindset and into your own.

That said, while I have been a coach in the past, being paid for that particular job isn’t a top priority of mine. Not because I don’t want to help, it’s just that there are better coaches out there that I could point you to. My job here, first and foremost, is to be a teacher, informer, and connector.

Becoming the best version of yourself is going to take a lot of time and a lot of hard work. You’ll need a lot of patience and probably a little bit of luck too. (Even though, I believe that luck is where opportunity and preparedness collide.)

I know I have a relatable and inspiring background. However, I know your life is simply different than mine has been. We’re going to have different mental blocks. Just know that I speak from experience and that I don’t want you to think of me as being some unreachable all-knowing superstar. This is just my way of paying it forward. Anything that you have a question about which is said within the New Inceptions website, a product, or other media should be researched by you so you can come up with your own conclusion.

I’d appreciate the input to making things better around here.

Finally, don’t expect any hard sales from me. I can’t stand it when people do it to me. I’ve had to do it a couple of times in my life and I sucked at it each time. Kudos to those who can do it successfully. To me, it just felt weird. Instead, when I do come up with products from time to time, just know they’re there to actually give a solution to problems that I’ve researched and gone out of my way to develop. Your support is appreciated. 🙂

So I think that’s it! Thanks so much for taking the time to read this and I hope to hear from you soon!

Cheers!

-JC

Clay Green – EnthusiastiClay!

Clay started by enabling and empowering Nuclear Reactor Operators on submarines! Enabling them to operate the complexity of a nuclear reactor, on a submarine, under the ice, with a torpedo chasing them, and a fire burning next to them! Then he enjoyed empowering and enabling engineers and managers in the highly stressful semiconductor manufacturing industry for several companies, including Intel. Just when you think ‘wow’… step into the next level – Clay helps adults learning how to ride motorcycles understand how dramatically differently their brains are operating, and basically, how to stay alive!

After an incident with a deer, at a few mph over the speed limit (where he didn’t crash!!), Clay really dove into the mind. Nowadays, he helps business owners and higher level executives understand how their deepest desires and fears dramatically affect every decision they make – unless they understand a few key principles, and develop a few key habits!
