Erik DeLaRosa, is a: nutrition/fitness expert, entrepreneur/MBA, finance/sales/marketing, online health coach, founder of Patsy G Mustard, and a sponsored athlete with team Gaspari, based in Dallas, Texas. I am inspired by DeLaRosa, personally & professionally. Personally, I am inspired by his incredible physique, style & charming southern accent. Professionally, I am inspired by his work ethic & entrepreneurial spirit.

What is a day in the life of DeLaRosa like?

“I wake up really early, like 4 or 5 am, and I go to the gym for about an hour and a half. Then, I get ready for work and go to work. Then, I have different things going on, that I have to do. I also own a mustard company, so like on my breaks or right after work, I have to make calls, setup demos, and set up my employees so they can work. Then, I have clients,  that text me all day, it’s just nonstop until I go to bed, usually Monday to Friday. Scheduling, working & doing a full-time job too, so just  business, all business all day, I work a lot,” said DeLaRosa.

What is one sentence would DeLaRosa use to describe Patsy G Mustard?

“There’s nothing like it. So it’s a condiment, that has multiple uses, and it’s one of a kind & you can use it on anything,” said DeLaRosa.

DeLaRosa’s most memorable year was the year his daughter was born. If he could leave her one quality it would be to be driven.

“What is one quality that I would like to leave my daughter, just to be driven, and work hard for what you want in life. Don’t expect anything to be handed to you and don’t rely on anyone. Just do things yourself, work hard, do a good job and just follow your dreams,” said DeLaRosa.

What does DeLaRosa prefer boxers or briefs and what is his favorite brand?

“I would have to say, that I wear them all, but I, wear briefs mostly and my favorite brand is Armani,” said DeLaRosa.

What would be the title of Delarosa’s life story and who would play him in a movie?

“Breaking the cycle and I’m going to play myself,” said DeLaRosa.

What is DeLaRosa favorite quote for inspiration?

“My favorite quote is, work hard, have faith and be tireless. One of my mentors told me that, just when Patsy G was just an idea, being made in my kitchen. I was trying to get it off the ground, and I will never forget it, said DeLaRosa, “but I am tired,” DeLaRosa added humorously.

Michael Scanlon

I recently had an opportunity to speak with Michael Scanlon, altruistic advocate & hunky model.

By: Joshua Conner

Michael Scanlon is an: international model & actor, ruby player formerly in Australia, MBA & Autism Behavioral Specialist from Evergreen Park, Illinois. Scanlon inspires me professionally & personally. Professionally, Scanlon has a great work ethic & has made great choices in diversifying his brand. Personally, Scanlon is handsome, has a great physique, style & social media presence. He was even named Top Modelof the year, by Chris Butler Photography in 2018. Scanlon’s good looks are only outmatched by his big heart.

What is a day in the life of Scanlon like?

“Everyday is so different, I just kind of wake up, do a little bit of social media work on the computer and I get to the gym. If I got a photo shoot to do, I’ll go to the gym, pretty early in the morning, then I’ll get to my shoot, and do a little bit of prep in terms of getting pumped up like, push ups, and pull ups that kind of stuff. There is also a lot of traveling involved too. Like next week, I am going to LA, so my Monday will consist of: waking up, driving to the airport, flying to LA, getting a rental car, going to a meeting, and trying to see if I can get a workout in, since I’ve got a photo shoot the same day. Everyday is so different, but I guess that keeps it exciting,” said Scanlon.

What would be the title of Scanlon’s life story and who would play him in a movie?

“Oh man, that’s a tough one, people are constantly telling me that I look like Henry Cavill, so he would play me in a movie, then the title would be something like an unexpected adventure”, said Scanlon.

If Scanlon’s mantra were a hashtag, what would it be?

“Oh man, you’re stomping me here, if my mantra were a hashtag, man, let’s see, it would be something like #everythingisearned,” said Scanlon.

What does Scanlon prefer boxers, briefs or boxer briefs and what are his favorite brand?

“Oh, it’s always boxer briefs, you know boxers are a bit to lose for me, briefs are a bit to tight for me, so I always kind of strive in the middle there. There are a few brands, that I like actually, you know, but if I had to pick one, it would be H & M, they are actually pretty comfortable,” said Scanlon.

Scanlon has also modeled for Richard Dayhoff underwear.

“Yeah, I did some of that with Joem, they’re really soft, they’re really comfortable, we’ve shot in them a few times and they’re really comfortable to wear. One of the things, that I like about them is that I like to keep my page a little bit more modest, and they are not overly revealing, so I do like that aspect of them as well,” said Scanlon about modeling Richard Dayhoff underwear.

What was Scanlon’s most memorable year?

“I think 2015, for me was kind of a big year. I think because, back in 2015, I was playing rugby in Australia, and we made the grand final, which is like the championship for them. I played the last five weeks of the season with a torn tendon, and we had to just wait until after the season was done to get surgery. In the same year, I got a huge promotion at the job that I was working with kids with autism. I started writing the company’s curriculum, and it was my last full year in Australia. I had a lot of good friends, I got to travel a lot, I saw a lot of Australia both personally and for work. I was able to go home and see my family for Christmas, so 2015, was a pretty great year,” said Scanlon.

How does Scanlon want to be remembered?

“There are a lot of different things, that I have been fortunate to do so far. I want people to see me as someone who helped others who needed it, especially you know the work with the kids with autism, that’s the most important thing for me. I just want to be remembered for helping others who needed help, more than anything. I know that’s the most important thing for me. I just want to be remembered for helping others who needed help, more than anything. I know modeling is in a lot of ways a selfish endeavor, but I still identify myself mostly with the work I did with the kids and I always will,” said Scanlon.
