Interview with BowTiedOx
113: Interview with former Army Ranger, Body Builder, and Fitness Business Savant
One of the reason I set out to start publishing premium content with Arb Letter is because over the last 5 years of our involvement in finance memes, fin-twitter, and other various digital landscapes, we’ve been exposed to a so many valuable and experienced people, companies, and brands. Never in a million years did I think I would have the ability to communicate, collaborate, and work with so many talented and smart people.
BowTied Ox is an anonymous personality/Twitter account within the BowTiedBull ecosystem. I have spoken to it before but if you’re new, BowTiedBull is the second evolution of a group of writers/ex finance/tech guys that originally started out writing under the pseudonym Wall Street Playboys.
With the onset of the pandemic, work from home, crypto bull run etc. they shifted into a new pursuit of educating a large following on finance, crypto, job searching, and many other topics in a real and straightforward way.
Then came the evolution of their digital ecosystem they had built and worked on for so long. The results were several highly valuable offshoots and clone accounts. Clones took the “Bowtied” aspect of the original name and started to build brands, businesses, and followings at rapid pace — all specializing in different areas of life including trading, construction, sales, e commerce, dentistry, defi, crypto, cars, and a litany of other subjects and topics.
Highly recommend googling and searching through these accounts — there is tremendous value to be had.
BowTiedOx, is a former Army Ranger, bodybuilding strong man, lifetime athlete in wrestling, football, weightlifting, current influencer/writer/guru in the fitness/health and bodybuilding/physique space. Ox and I have become online acquaintances through the BowTied community and because of our shared interests in pursuing sovereignty, family, business, and health.
BowTiedOx is his pseudonym. For those unfamiliar — anonymity is a feature of many of the new digital communities that we have interacted with and a hallmark feature of many web3 and crypto based communities. Arbitrage Andy has been my anonymous pseudonym since 2017.
You may wonder why anonymous?
Well there ar many benefits to anonymity in the modern world. For starters — security and safety (it’s better to be rich and anonymous than in the public eye, especially in today’s day and age).
You can share more raw and unfiltered advice/viewpoints without the risk of being canceled or harassed by the woke mob and more importantly when you’re anonymous you are judged solely on your ideas and commentary — not your appearance or preconceived notions people have about you.
Today we’ll take a glimpse into how Ox got started, his experiences in business, and how he helps covers fitness, health, and mindset, all grounded in the fundamentals of physiology.
In a day and age when traditional masculinity is demonized and there are less and less positive role models for men (and women), I wanted to highlight Ox’s achievements and dogma because they align with mine and I truly believe 90% of what we will cover today is the key to success, happiness, and fulfillment.
The goal today is to make everyone better and hopefully share some perspective and pointers to help everyone succeed in various aspects of life including business, fitness, finance, and personal endeavors. When building and forging my digital relationships and network I like to use a quote by Jessica St. Clair as a guide:
Once you figure out what your passion is, surround yourself with like-minded people who can help you grow.
Successful in online business/writing
Has a military background
Holds similar sentiment on crypto/defi
Has excelled in his bodybuilding and fitness endeavors
Is dedicated to bettering young men (and women)

Thousands take advantage of the pieces we put out.
After all the infamous BowTied moniker that created the vast digital ecosystem that exists today is — equal opportunity, unequal results.
Everyone has the opportunity to succeed and better themselves but not everyone will seize that chance.
With that let’s get into the interview.
