My name is Jason Bracht and I am the face behind Awesome Habits. I am a father, husband, author, entrepreneur, animal lover, health and fitness enthusiast, sports fan, and world traveler. I wear a lot of hats and have a have an abundant amount of interests. Awesome Habits is my way of writing about the foundation of our lives – Habits!
The goal of this blog is simple. To help YOU develop healthy habits and improve your life. I’m a firm believer in that not everyone learns the same way. Therefore, you will find videos, blog posts, books, case studies, as well as an upcoming podcast.
We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit. – Aristotle
My Mom and my Dad had me when they were really young 17 and 18 years old to be exact. I was essentially raised by my Grandmother who is the strongest woman I know. She worked multiple jobs waiting tables to support us. Through this I saw the toll that the modern 9-5 grind was taking on my Grandma. She came home tired, exhausted, and frustrated from the meager earnings she was bringing in. I didn’t know it then but my young brain must of been taking mental notes on how I wanted to avoid the 9-5 trap. Then as a teenager, I witnessed a couple of her employers unjustly and abruptly firing her. At that point I knew I couldn’t rely on some random company offering me stability and started planning to make it on my own.
It has never been easy and nothing was given to me, but I haven’t relied on employer to pay me a check since 2008. I have been making my money as an internet entrepreneur ever since. Previous to that I had done a little bit of everything. Working numerous jobs from washing dishes to the U.S. Army. My first business was launched in the height of the latest recession in 2008. A lot of people scoffed, downplayed, and even laughed at my ideas early on. I kept hearing the status quo of “go to college, get a job, and retire comfortably.” I didn’t like that model of living. Why wait until you are in your late 50’s to start enjoying life? I wanted to live life on my own terms. So I sat out on blazing my own trail and through trial and error have accumulated a lot of knowledge on what it takes to build successful habits.
My focus really started to change when my son Alex was born in September of 2013. I wanted to start building an empire that I could give to him. Simple put – I want to be my sons hero and lead by example! Instead of merely creating businesses that sold physical products I decided to start teaching others to become successful by creating healthy habits and living life to the fullest. I have since built a very successful book publishing business as well as written some best selling habit books of my own.

Now my focus is on creating valuable content that you guys can use to better your lives. I believe that the piece of the pie is big enough for everyone and through sharing my experience and knowledge I hope to teach and empower hundreds and thousands, maybe even millions of people (through the power of the internet) to create their ideal lifestyle!
