I’m damn good!
Where to begin? I’ll start by saying this isn’t my normal blog post. I would go as far as saying this is a return to my blogging roots. Honestly, I thought I wouldn’t see 50, but here I am. And it has been one heck of an adventure. Let’s see I’ve done so many things, on both sides of the morality scale.
For example, I’ve done/ or been:
- DJ (1984-1994)
- Beat Maker/Producer (1986-2004; 2019-Present)
- Escort transportation/bodyguard & Brothel manager (1995-2006)
- Photographer (1983-Present)
- Web Designer (1997-Present)
- Graphic Designer/Photo editor/manipulator (2005-Present)
- Blogger (1999-Present) Vlogger (2012-Present)
- Audio & Video Editor (1992-Present)
- Podcaster (2017-Present)
- SEO / Analytics (2009-Present)
As you see I kind of went in on a few things. But for the longest, I always felt that I never saw my full potential as I moved on to the next. But not totally abandoning any skills I acquired I just simply got vested into other things and moved on. Now here we are in 2021 and all these skills and talents I acquired I’m relying on them all for my current work, both professional and personal. Yet there was one thing I was lacking that I didn’t even realize. The belief that I was as good as people said I was. Often my friends brag on me about the things I know, have done, and are doing. But I just took it as friends just pumping me up. Then the BOREDinDE Podcast took off and is still growing. Getting feedback about that has really helped me see that I’m just that good. And now with Uncle Tuck, and the DJ Big Rush live stream. I’m really seeing that it wasn’t all for nothing. All the while having a great time.
When I left my corporate job back in June 2021, I really wasn’t sure of my next move. But I found not one but two companies that saw my strengths and potential and brought me abroad. Who knew learning Google Analytics for my own would allow me to find employment utilizing those very same skills? I really owe this to my dad, who always instilled a thirst for learning. So doing a deep dive in books, taking classes, attending seminars trying to learn all about SEO management and Analytics really paid off. I’m able to utilize those talents and make money and keep growing and learning.
Just the other day one of my homies, I can’t recall if it was G’Jurel, Mush, or Snook… called me a renaissance man. At first thought I was like Nah I don’t see it, but when I really sit down and think about it. I will be damn I guess I am, although I will still say I’m constantly learning and evolving. But I’ll take it.
