Thanks to a recent blast of inspiring coffee meetings, book recommendations and conferences in other countries, I’ve started to zero-in on my niche, escaping my comfort zone and taking on different kinds of clients. I’ve defined my elevator pitch, trashed the background story of “how I got here” and embraced what I’m doing now.
I don’t exactly have a routine, but I am focused on a few things: my health, writing, and striving to continually make an impact. The second item is where I try to devote most of my “working” time, and have ramped up my contributions to Forbes. I’m also finding freelance work elsewhere, though the total number of blog posts I write per week ebbs and flows.
The tough part about freelancing and consulting full-time is that it’s hard to keep everyone up-to-date about what I’m doing, where I’m going, and sometimes most importantly – where I’ve been. I’ve finally decided to launch a weekly newsletter highlighting some of the articles I’ve written, other places I’ve been published and occasionally additional articles elsewhere I think are interesting.
Twitter can be noisy and I know that not everyone checks Facebook as much as I do. If you want to keep up with me – and the latest in tech news and trends – I’d love it if you’d sign up for my weekly email newsletter. It’s totally free and there’s no commitment (which is an awesome combination by itself)…..plus you’ll be the first to receive special discounts on events and know about giveaways (which I have several upcoming.)
And stay tuned for more blog posts here. This recent kick of inspiration has me more motivated than ever to devote some much needed attention to this blog just as much as the others. Can’t wait to share my ideas with you!
