I was going to just post my first blog the traditional way. Share a story, include some nuggets of insight and send my readers on their way. But for some reason I felt I needed to give a bit of a pre-amble to share what I want to accomplish with my blog, so that you my readers, have an understanding of where I’m coming from and what to expect.
I also wanted to do it because it’s my blog, and I didn’t want to be tied down to convention or constrained by the way people think a blog should be done.
If you follow my posts you’ll come to understand that I can be a bit of a maverick at times. I don’t necessarily buck the norm just for the sake of it. I don’t intentionally try to do things differently just be different. But I do tend to follow the “beat of my own drum” because I feel that things could be different or better and I want my voice to be heard. In an authentic way, that comes straight from my heart and mind.
Perhaps you can relate to that feeling that you just want to share your insights, thoughts and feelings and be heard and understood.
And if you’re like me, it comes from a place of wanting to reach out and connect and make a difference in the world. If you’re like me then you want to do it in an authentic way that truly represents you.
So that’s why I decided to post my first blog for Expert Elevation in this way.
I want you to know that my intention is to create a blog where I can share my thoughts, insights, frustrations, wisdom, challenges and useful information that come along my way. I don’t intend to make my blog all “touchy feely” with each post but I do want my words to stir emotion, cause reflection, motivate and inspire action. I also want my blogs to bring you knowledge, insight and know-how that will serve you and help you to move your business forward.
Most of my future posts will be focused on business strategies, marketing tactics, sales techniques and other business building and brand enhancing content. And for the most part it will provide a source of quick, easy to digest, business information, that if used and implemented by you should help to improve your operations, attract more of your ideal clients, get clear on your business priorities, and help you to make more money.
But I wanted you to know I’ll sprinkle in some inspirational and motivational posts to help keep you going, energize you, and help propel you and your business forward.
I know from personal successes that I’ve had in my life that achieving great things is part strategy, part tactics, and part having the right mindset for success. And because I’m committed to helping my audience and my coaching clients to be successful I want to give you posts related to each of these areas. And from time to time I’ll also post something a little controversial to get you fired up and passionate about your own opinion and position on a topic.
This blog isn’t going to try to appease the majority, rather it’s designed to attract other entrepreneurs who are passionate about what they do, are committed to making a difference in the lives of others, and determined to reach their own full potential in business and in life.
If this resonates with you then I invite you to follow my blog and become part of “my tribe”. I promise to give you awesome business information, tools, tips, tactics sprinkled with inspiration and thought provoking dialogue. And I welcome your comments and feedback. This blog is meant to serve you so let me know what topics you’re interested in and I’ll do my best to address those topics.
I’ll leave you with this quote that resonates with me. I hope you have a positive connection with it as I do. It reinforces my confidence that I’m on an amazing journey, uniquely mine; a journey where I get to help change the world, even if it’s just one person at a time. I hope it makes you feel the same way.
“Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”
— Steve Jobs
