What's Your Motto / What Do You Stand For? You are 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it! That's why I choose to smile. A smile always makes things a little better.
Tell Us Why You Have The MEANEST Beard? (Share An Interesting Story Behind Your Beard. We Want To Know Who The Man Behind The Beard Is.) One big reason I love my beard is children are fascinated by beards. Usually much to the embarrassment of their parents. They either think I'm Santa, which I always play along with or they just can't quit staring. Even very shy children are drawn to the beard. Putting a smile on someone's face, especially a child makes it so worth any negative comments I may get.

Tell Us Why You Have The MEANEST Beard? (Share An Interesting Story Behind Your Beard. We Want To Know Who The Man Behind The Beard Is.) I was diagnosed with a cancerous brain tumor, they removed it and it almost immediately started to regrow. Nine years later another seizure happens. The tumor is more aggressive than it was so I had to do 33 rounds of radiation and a year of chemo. Having the ability to grow my beard gives me a sense of power over my cancer! Every time I look in the mirror I can see the scar from my two surgeries but I can also see my MEAN BEARD!

Tell Us Why You Have The MEANEST Beard? (Share An Interesting Story Behind Your Beard. We Want To Know Who The Man Behind The Beard Is.) I feel I'd represent the MEAN BEARD like a true BADASS. You guys have a great product killer street cred, not to mention being 6'4" 370lbs and a nickname of Mongo doesn't hurt. Lol.

I was at my sister's house working one day, when she said Forrest I love you , but if I didn't know you and you knocked on my door I would think twice about opening the door. You look mean with that beard. I love it at work when I walk up to help a customer and they kinda back up . Just because I'm 6' tall and have a big beard. It never fails by the time we're done we shake hands and I've made a new friend.

Before my beard I was a pretty shy guy just going with the flow of life. Then I decided to let it grow out and boy oh boy did it change my life. I've accepted a few different promotions at work, bought my first house, started competing in beard comps, and just had my first child (a boy!). My MEAN BEARD gave me a boost of confidence that I really needed and ill never look back!
