Fear not the strangeness you feel
The future must enter you far before it happens.
Just wait for the birth, for the new hour of clarity.
– Maria Rainier Wilke
I am very thankful to come across this today. Thank you Therese for sharing it on your post.
Often times I find myself loathing the question, “What do you do Brady?” I especially loath the question when I don’t know the person asking it. Part of my frustration comes from wanting to be able to communicate in a meaningful way to that person…. and that is dependent on knowing their level of exposure to the domains that I work in. My family to date has a vague idea of what I do, not because I haven’t told them but because most of what I do is so far outside of the realm of things they deal with. Who thinks about sales funnels, SEO, persuasive architecture, marketing budgets, google analytics, etc.
Starting this year I have taken on the title, Internet Profit Strategist. So now people know that I do something with the Internet, something related to money and something that is based in strategy. It is a starting point at least.
I want to get back into the quote I shared above. I have resisted the “strangeness” of my work for sometime. I have not been able to see the big picture of my services as clearly as I see this keyboard. I know that I enjoy helping people that are in action, moving their business towards their goals of bringing a better & healthier product or service into the world. For me, I have seen how critical the strategic use of technology can be for success. It is here, with CRM’s, Internet Marketing, persuasion, strategic thinking, web development that I have placed my focus since 2007. In line with that, I am excited to be working with clients through the medium of building Lead Generating Websites at The Website Architects. For now, I am tempted to get confortable with my “strangeness” and see what future is entering though me. More to come. Please feel free to share moments of strangeness and clarity in the comments below or via email to me.
