Some times the best way to find your own purpose is to give purpose to others.
Now granted, I’ve got a narrow scope of places I can help others …
So do you have social media questions? Trying to figure out how to make it work for you or your business? I’ve worked with Nike, Procter & Gamble, MetLife and plenty of others along the way covering the NFL.
I have to guess that most of you reading this are probably avid users of the tools, but are you using them the best effect in your business? Need some ideas? Need a kick? Just want to bounce your thoughts or questions off someone who’s been doing this stuff since way before it was called “social media”?
Here’s me talking with Tomm Bauer & Chris (Bassett!) on their radio show The Last Call from last night. We talk about sports, football, being a blogger and being a dad. My interview starts at the 18:30 mark.
Oh and hey check out how I totally missed on who would be the starting quarterback for the Jets this weekend. It’s not like it’s the only single topic I write about almost every day of the year …
I have no idea what the next month is going to look like, but I can guarantee you that my life WILL look a lot different. I hope to chronicle the next few months of my life more closely, because I think it will be more interesting than it has been in the past few months, but also because I am going to need all the help I can get from my friends & family!
In thirty days, I most likely will be unemployed by the business that currently keeps my family in diapers, doctor visits, and dijon mustard.
I had a pretty cushy job in the tech industry … I am fully aware I didn’t love it … the love eroded over six years as the job got progressively more difficult to do with increasingly less financial incentive. But it paid the bills and allowed me the time outside work to focus on TheJetsBlog or whatever else I liked.
I most likely will be continuing interviewing with new companies. I also will most likely will do freelance work and trying to create products like mobile apps or online content with little prior experience or knowledge of the process.
So I feel like I am two people all day long … awesome.
