Well, my first blog post is obviously the “funny-feeling” ice breaker. I think it’s the idea that I’ll be broadcasting my voice to whomever wishes to listen…pretty weird.

Anyway, I think I’m over it now.

Like I said in my profile, I’ll mainly be using this blog to speak about my professional life and the industry that I work in. Focusing especially on Web Strategy Marketing for the small to medium sized business, but occasionally I might throw in an inspirational/motivational rant just to keep us all on the right path.

So on that note…

I just finished reading a post from Mark Cuban’s blog about treating business like a sport. He said something in there that really grabbed my attention:

“I love the sport of business. I love the competition. I love the fire of it. It’s the feeling of the clock winding down, the ball is in your hands, and if you hit the shot you win…all day, every day.”

For years, I wished that I would get this feeling for something in life. I didn’t care what it was, just as long as I had that fire to be the best. Finally, at 28 I can honestly say that I feel like a player in the sport of business. There is no better feeling.

I think the one thing that got me here, and the best piece of advice I can give to anyone who’s still struggling to get into their game is; figure it out now. Seriously, take a day or a whole week if you have to and write everything down. What do you want out of life? Lock yourself in your room, and don’t leave until you figure it out. Otherwise, you might just end up a bench warmer, not a player.
