“ONE WHO DARES TO LIVE LIFE AT FULL THROTTLE. SOMEONE WHO IS DETERMINED TO BECOME THE BEST THEY CAN BE, TO FOLLOW THEIR DREAMS TO THE END OF THEIR DAYS, TO RISK WHENEVER NECESSARY, AND TO OVERCOME EVERY OBSTACLE THAT WOULD RENDER THEIR LIVES ORDINARY. IN THE WORDS OF THOREAU, “…TO LIVE DEEP AND SUCK OUT ALL THE MARROW OF LIFE.”
Vanilla Busters is founded upon the belief that everyone is meant to live an epic life. By “epic” we do not mean a life that is necessarily famous or wealthy. An epic life is one in which the gift, talent, passion mix we are born with is fully maximized and we have drained dry all our potential.
Vanilla Busters are men and women who refuse to settle for an ordinary, mundane, risk-free life. They have made the resolute decision to abandon the security and safety of the bleachers, and to enter into the dangers and glories of the playing field. It’s about giving up small dreams and bite-sized ambitions so that we can take hold of dreams and ambitions big enough to make our stay on planet earth worthwhile. It’s refusing to allow someone else to do our risk-taking, and daring to live life at full throttle. It’s about saying “no” to vanilla, and shouting “yes” to life.
These short videos will encourage you, motivate you, and challenge you to live and lead the epic life of a Vanilla Buster!

The Power of Relentlessness
“I would rather be ashes than dust! I would rather that my spark should burn out in a brilliant blaze than it should be stifled by dry-rot. I would rather be a superb meteor, every atom of me in magnificent glow, than a sleepy and permanent planet. The function of man is to live, not to exist. I shall not waste my days trying to prolong them. I shall use my time.”
