Personal Brand

Over the years I have done a lot of things. much of that history is documented on this website, but much more isn’t. Many of my projects and business ideas were purposely separated from my personal site and I didn’t even reference them here or elsewhere. Some of that was to avoid sharing more failures, some was to give things a chance to prove themselves without the influence of family and friends.

I’m starting to have a change of heart. So I’m revisiting this website and will be slowly turning it into more of a nexus of every project that I’m working on and as a hub for the businesses that I’m launching.

You may have noticed that I added some links to the top level navigation on this page. The Moon To Stay Podcast is a project I’ve been working on for the last 2 months. Writing and preparing to record a series of podcasts all about the moon. When thinking about this project I originally thought about creating a new website for it – buy the domain name, build a podcast specific site to host the feed, and show notes.

The more that I thought about it though, the goals of the podcast is really about myself. Gaining confidence with speaking, interviewing, and recording. Showcasing some expertise and interest in the subject, and attempt to have some personal impact on humans in space. Doing a commercial style thing just doesn’t fit with that set of personal goals.

So I’m putting the podcast on this website.

The decision got me thinking about some of the other things that I work on that I haven’t really integrated with this personal blog. It’s important to celebrate your successes, and promote the work you do. If nobody knows about all the great things you do, then nobody will every find and use it. Communication of all these things is and important aspect of giving value to the world.

So one of the tasks I have for myself for the rest of January is to pull in a lot of different things to this website that show off things I am currently working on, and show some of the historical projects that have been done before.
