Answering my call to action earlier this week, David Bennett stung me with his response.
[Ari] seems like he wants to get on in life and he is a city councillor – but he spends time on this social media stuff – almost like he is working on a thesis or something.
I’m not working on a thesis.
But I know why David writes that.
I’m working to succeed in something that is bigger than me. I am working the only way I know how to work by networking, marketing, and selling other people and their products in the hope that someone will look at me differently and sell me in return. I am working to define my brand and my services succinctly that anyone can understand who I am and what I do.
I am not working at an organization. I am not working for The Man. I am trying my darnedest to work for myself, generating ideas and building blocks of me across the web so that anyone who finds me, wherever I am found, sees me as how I want to be seen.
Looking at Neal and Kirsten and Sarah and Christine and John and others who inspire me with who they are and what they do, I am continually learning from the best and brightest to blend their magic into my passions and create something wonderful.
