Starting a blog, creating a website, cleaning and sharpening social media profiles, and picking the most professional photo that not only send the message that “You should take me seriously, but also that I have a personality you should want to get to know.”, you wouldn’t be laughed at for thinking that I was joining the throng of people seeking a new love on a dating website.
While I am not looking for a new lover to replace my fantastic wife, I am indeed looking to be accepted and respected for my beliefs and my ideas, so not entirely far from a lonely heart.
So, what is this all about?
I have decided to start taking myself seriously and part of that requires that I step up to the role I want to play in the world. I have decided to start sharing my ideas about business, people, politics, parenting, marriage, manhood, and being a citizen of the world. The most important motive of investing and sharing myself in public like this is to do what we should all do – to create a personal brand. I believe that a personal brand is essential in creating any future brands, and so much more important if you want to impact your community by sharing your successes and failures. The journey to legitimacy.
What good will this do for you?
Perhaps you are like me, a visionary, a dreamer, a starter, a connector but just don’t have a direction, or maybe you don’t know that you are any of those but instead know that you want to do or be more. Some people don’t get a direction or a starting block, and from what I have learned so far about people like me, we have to make our own way. It is my hope that my journey could help you with you yours or at the very least inspire you to seek what you want to invest your heart beats in.
I like what you are saying, what’s next?
Stay with me! I am probably just like you in that I have a family, friends, a job, and businesses that require my time. I will however, in the spirit of keeping my commitment to taking myself seriously for the sake of the above, write and share as often as I can. If you don’t know me yet, connect with me, contact me and share your thoughts with me.
