For the last year, an opportunity has been brewing behind-the-scenes that led to a formal job offer a few months ago. I wasn’t looking for a job at the time, but after much deliberation… I said yes.
Starting today (May 1st, 2017) I am the full-time Brand Director & Dean for Platform University, an established monthly membership site from Michael Hyatt.
This is exciting news, and it comes at the perfect time!
This is my second year writing an “annual review” post to reflect on what went well, what did not go well, and what I will change in the coming year. This post is especially helpful for me, but I hope you can learn something from it as well.
For this year’s “backstory”, you might enjoy reading my annual review from last year, My Annual Review (2015): The Year We Birthed a Business and a Baby.
Have you been itching to launch a new blog? Or are you ready to give your current blog a good kick in the pants? Sometimes that’s all it takes to make the leap from “hobby” to online business.

You may or may not have noticed… but it’s been ten weeks since I published the last post on this blog. Ten freaking weeks! A.K.A. Seventy days or roughly 1/5th of an entire year.
Sure, I launched a new podcast and wrote a guest post or two, but I call myself a full-time blogger―what gives?
How many emails are sitting in your inbox that you’ve never opened, and probably never will? Once you open an email, do you read it? Or do you quickly click away?
There’s a science behind effective email marketing campaigns, and if you’re not paying attention you shouldn’t be surprised when nobody is reading your work.
If you’re building a personal brand, your subscribers want to hear from you.
Don’t structure your emails like big-name brand would. Your brand is made up of you (and they have a marketing team who couldn’t all fit in your bedroom at once).
My advice is simple: You are you, so write like you.
