My Career Is Evolving!
I am so excited that I am finally going to be able to give you a behind the scenes look into my new journey I’ve been working on for the last 6 months.
My writing career has taken me on a ton of unexpected paths since I started out as a songwriter touring 51 weeks of the year. I’ve worked as a staffwriter for the FOX Network, a content writer for Corus Entertainment’s Toon Boom and I’ve worked as a content strategist at Wagner Meters and other large B2B companies.
Here’s A Little Secret…
But here’s a little secret I want to share with you…
As cool as those incredible projects were, something just didn’t feel right.
To be honest, I think I lost a part of myself because I didn’t have time to figure out who I truly am. I was so busy checking off my to-do lists and getting bombarded with new projects that my inner creative side was stifled.
Efficiency Kills Creativity
My efficiency killed my creativity because my ideas didn’t have a chance to breathe. I was just a machine running on autopilot – checking off my task lists and not allowing myself any downtime.
And when I finally did take some time off, it wasn’t by choice.
Not long ago, a serious injury knocked me on my butt and forced me to take 2 months off from work while I healed. During that time, I did a lot of soul searching. I took a deep look down inside and asked myself, why is this happening to me? What am I doing with my life? Why am I not happy? And what can I do to change it?
Even though the answers to those questions weren’t exactly what I was expecting, they helped me refocus and find my true meaning.
Letting Go Of My Financial Safety Net
I know this is going to sound crazy, but I want to provide value even if it means losing a little bit of my financial stability. The truth is, I don’t know how long I’m going to be on this planet, none of us do…but what I do know is this; I need to feel fulfilled, I want to make a difference and I need to be proud of the path I choose.
This is the year I am going to focus on building out my own brand while helping out as many people as I possibly can along the way. My modest goal for my first year is to help at least 100 entrepreneurs achieve online success by doubling their traffic and sales.
I’m going to achieve this mission by offering an online membership site with cutting edge marketing techniques that anyone can afford.
But the best part is this; these programs will be created based on requests I receive from my exclusive members.
I want to build out a community and create programs, tools and templates that will help my members achieve the online success that they deserve.
Each month, I will examine some of the best content marketing campaigns that have been launched, interview industry gurus and share some of the most up-to-date content strategies from around the world.
You’ll learn how to:
- Establish yourself online
- Increase your traffic
- Attract your perfect clients
- Leverage social media
- Create content that aligns with your marketing goals
And so much more….
This project has been a long time in the making, but I truly believe it’s going to kick some serious butt!
