I have fun following threads of random oddness, and that’s why I do what I do.
I received an amazing gift today, via an email that went something like this:
You’ve had an amazing effect on me and I can only imagine how many others….
In case you needed to know.
If I can be just a bit self-reflective I’ve got to admit (mostly to myself) that I actually do it pretty well. I’m doing some work on my site, bio and profile, trying to put into words just what it is that I do. I just love getting that question, actually, not really. You meet someone new and they say “what do you do?” As soon as I hear that, everything inside of me rebels from the “elevator pitch” answer, and I try to come up with something fun and creative to say. I realize this isn’t fair. When someone asks the question, it’s usually because they want to know. They just met me, and they need a mailbox to put the information into so they can associate it with something and remember next time. My latest line, which I used yesterday, went something like this: “I follow random oddness.” Doesn’t really tell them anything. Yet it’s everything all at the same time.
So what do I do? Read here and you’ll find out what they think I do. Reading what they say, I kind of want to meet me, too.
So what shall my answer be? I am a creative strategist for social media. I coach, I consult, I empower. I also follow random threads of uniqueness from the universe and try to apply it practically to life’s applications. That’s a long way of saying I like to discover new things, find new ideas to use in new ways, and give people a swift kick when they’ve stalled out and I can help them keep moving. For their own good, of course. Not because I have high expectations…
