I’ve been taking large breaks from this blog in order to focus on where I was going, and what I needed to do in order to get there. During that time, I’ve had tons of support from people, both old and new. I had to think about my personal identity, and how it relates to the company and brand that I want to build. I am at the point now where I’m ready to share again. I wanted to say, though, that in sharing this very new chapter in my life, I’m out of my element. Entrepreneurship, content marketing, and business are all very new to me, and because of that, I will (and am) making lots of mistakes – rookie mistakes – along the way. But, to take a quote from a colleague, “If you’re not making mistakes, you’re not going fast enough.” So here’s me, going very fast!
Below is a video I recorded this morning. I will be making a lot more of these in the up and coming days, because people have been curious about what I do, now, and what my entrepreneurship journey is like. I had been wanting to make one for some time, but had always been waiting until that time was perfect. However, 2018 taught me a huge lesson about perfection: perfection is really just a set of standards or expectations that we use to view the world, others, and ourselves. When I took on this perspective, I realized that perfection is transient, and it’s different for everyone. So, I changed my idea of perfect for these videos. Here’s what I will try to do:
- Post regularly
- Post spontaneously – no scripts (although I’ll focus on a point or two so that I don’t ramble)
- Keep it to 15 minutes or less (unless it’s an instructional video, in which case, I’ll break things up)
Enjoy the video, and let me know in the comments if there’s stuff you wanted to see, or questions you had that you think I could answer. Thanks for reading and watching, everyone!
