Born and raised in the mountains of northwest Georgia, Chadd and Blake hunted, fished, laughed, learned, lived and fought together. Throughout childhood and into early adulthood an everlasting bond of brotherhood was forged that would later birth a project that would change the world.
As they entered adulthood in 2006 their paths diverged. Chadd decided to join the Navy and pursue his dream of being a Navy SEAL while Blake stayed home to finish high school and college and establish roots in what he thought he would enjoy doing the rest of his life.
Chadd went on to have a successful career in the SEAL teams serving as a Team Leader on multiple deployments, a SEAL instructor and Master Training Specialist. Retiring in 2019, he is now a part-time defense contractor, business owner, entrepreneur, competitive Ultrarunner and husband.
Blake went on to finish college with a bachelor of science degree in business management, start a family, become a law enforcement officer, SWAT team member, entrepreneur, Ultrarunner, husband and father.
In their free time they like to run, shoot guns and bows, hunt and spend time with family. Although they were separated physically for many years they still spoke on a regular basis about life, struggles, and normal brotherly things. During one of their conversations they came upon the idea of building a brand that was dedicated to helping others become more complete, and out of that 3-of-7 was born.
3 of 7 project is the place where their passions, desires, and paths have merged, and they have combined our past experiences to create a project dedicated to assisting in your becoming the best version of yourself. At 3 of 7, they believe that mankind was created in the image and likeness of God. We, as human beings consist of 3 parts a Body, Soul and Spirit just as God is comprised of The Father, The Son and The Holy Spirit. This is what the “3” in 3 of 7 is represents.
The number “7” in 3 of 7 represents a totally complete life where we lack nothing and have the tools and ability to help others and meet all challenges, physically, mentally and spiritually head on.
To achieve completeness, help others and enjoy the fullness of life that God intended for us, they have found that all three aspects of mankind must be fed, directed and disciplined individually. Only when the Body, Soul and Spirit are sharpened and in unison can we experience a complete and abundant life.
