In the years since I launched this blog and website my life has taken many turns. Some of them have been major turns that redirected how I saw myself. Others have been smaller turns that simply tweaked my perspective. In most instances there were a series of small turns that ultimately led me to a new perspective.
That’s where I am now. I’ve spent the last few years doing two things:
1. Figuring out what I wanted my future to look like
2. Figuring out how to combine my professional interests into a career
Now before I go into my current conclusions, I want to share something. While I’ve gotten more clear, I’m still doing some figuring. When I was fresh out of college, facing the world, I thought I had it all figured out. When a year had passed and I wasn’t doing what I thought I’d be doing, I felt lost and confused because I didn’t have anything figured out. It’s taken me several years to realize that it’s tough to have everything all figured out.
Yes, there will be moments of clarity where I will be able to move forward with a high level of certainty. But there will also be moments of complete confusion where I will be focused only on putting one foot in front of the other. So with that being explained, this is my current conclusion:
I am here to help people. I have a unique set of life experiences and insight that I want to use to help. I’m still figuring out exactly how I want to help but professionally I’ve found a sweet spot.
I’m a storyteller. I can use my storytelling skills to help businesses. I’m also a tech nerd who enjoys the expansive nature of the digital world. I’ve combined those interests as well as my experience in public relations, internet marketing and writing to begin to pursue a career as a Digital Strategist.
Essentially, I help businesses take advantage of the digital space using tools like content marketing, search engine marketing, social media marketing and other marketing strategies. I’m writing all of this to set the tone for the types of things I will begin to share here. While I will still be sharing my uninspired ramblings of pure inspiration, I will also be discussing different digital and tech related topics.
I invite you to join me on this journey.
