There are many things I am NOT good at.
Imagine our world if everyone were completely up front about what they do well and what they do not do well. Then, imagine what the world would be like if we lined up our passions with the gifts and talents God gave us. We could change the world!
I wrote my first guest blog post today and talked about this very thing. It is amazing to me how many people pretend to be good at something when they know they are not. It takes more confidence to say “I do not do that well” then it does to say “yes, I can do that,” when you know you really can’t.
There are a couple of things in which I am really gifted. There are a few more things I am “ok” at doing and there are thousands of things I am not good at – period. I am very grateful to be at the place in my life and career where I can recognize this – at least most of the time. [No matter seasoned we are I think we all have moments where we experience delusions of grandeur.]
So, I will continue to serve my clients by doing the things I do well and leave the rest to other experienced professionals.
I would love to hear about what you do well (and what you don’t do well too)…
Many times bloggers have a dream of what their blog will be about, who will read it what they plan to say. Sometimes they are right and sometimes their blogs morph into something unexpected. My goal is to help small to medium-sized business with marketing and business related challenges. If you are a marketing and business guru/expert/kingpin then this blog is probably not for you (you could teach me a thing or two :)).
I do have some experience to share. Deep experience in marketing, ecommerce, special events, software and in start-ups (specific experience in why some don’t work). I help small to medium-sized business with marketing and business related challenges. My goal is that you will find something useful here to grow and improve your business.
As of today, July 28, 2010 I am still in the process of building this site. The saying “if you build it, they will come” is a fallacy. You have to direct people to “it” because there is so many other things vying for your readers’ attention. If you happen to stumble upon my site before I complete it please help me start spreading the word and visit frequently. Of course if you wish to send me hundreds of readers before I have started marketing it then by all means – go ahead! 🙂
Thanks for the support.
