I’m the first to admit that I am not perfect. I am good at some things, but horrible at others. I recognize my strengths and my weaknesses.
Here’s what I am not: A marketer. A salesman. A guru. A ninja, samurai, gladiator or any other weapon wielding ancient warrior. A social media anything. An expert, an optimizer, or an evangelist.
I am a creator. I make things, whether with my hands, my eyes, or my mind. It’s a unique position in which I reside, being able to make something from nothing, to craft a story from seeming tedium, to whittle away shavings of wood to reveal a piece of artwork.
So many of us are in the same position, but we cover it up with titles that mean nothing but sound important or clever.
You know what I love most about video and podcasting? Talking with people, recording what they have to say, and crafting it into a compelling story. It’s like magic to me.
My title is not important. The story I tell is.
