Welcome to my World

May I be the first to welcome and thank you for reading my very first blog post! I have been wanting to start a blog for a while but just didn’t know what to talk about. So I decided to just write about my passions. Bonsai trees, love, marketing, nature, travel, life, and spirituality. But today I am going to share with you the man who lit a fire under my butt, Mr. Mark Schaefer.

Last night, I heard one of the most influential and eye opening mini-speeches in my entire life. Thanks to Mark, social media guru and marketing shaman, I realized a lot deeper what social media is all about. As an aspiring marketer and soon to be graduate of Arizona State University’s W.P. Carey School of Business, I have a dirty little secret: I hate social media! Before last night, all social media to me was like one of those bullshit elections you did in middle school for class president…just one huge popularity contest. Now popularity is cool and all when you know how to command it, but sucks if, you’re like me, and strive to be the most talked about thing out there but fall flat on your face in the process. I hated social media because it was a great deal of time wasting and nothing else. Who cares about what the grocery store cashier said about your mom’s outfit or how hung over you are after getting plastered at karaoke? But after last night that all changed. It’s not about the popularity, or the number of pictures posted, or the stupid statuses that should better have been left unsaid. It’s all about the connections we make with people from all over the world that couldn’t have been possible only a few years ago. It’s about the meaningful content that people not only want to read but want to share with those they feel connected with from across the planet. It’s about being a part of an online community of collaborators, brainstormers, innovators, and artists. So with that being said, I am doing my part in adding content to the vast world of social media and leaving my unique mark the world should know.

So welcome to my world! I hope you enjoy the wisdom and experiences I talk about and my transformation into the man I desire to be!
