I spent the entire morning updating my About Page, significantly.
I haven’t updated that page in months – in fact, the last time I touched it significantly was in January (although I edited something small in April). I need to take a bit of my own medicine as I have told many people that editing and curating your About Page is something that needs to be done constantly!
So here is your kind reminder to go to your About page and update some of the (very) outdated information as well as add a few things that have happened since you last touched it. Don’t just say “John, that’s a fantabulous idea!” and then never get around to it – do it by the end of the week, put it on the calendar, and then comment below with a link to your About page!
A Few Thoughts About This Update…
This update was much more personal that I’ve ever done and it dramatically changed the explicit intention of this blog, although those that have been following for some time have already realized that.
Our lives are constantly changing, re-arranging, and opportunities come and go as quickly as water. And even if you don’t believe that to be true then it’s quite possible you’re not paying enough attentino.
I’ve also changed my tagline a bit to simply
Entrepreneurship; the Pursuit (changed it again… made it more simple.) I’m not sure how I feel about it but it’ll do for now. The reason for this is because this is most simply what I do and have done every single day of my life – I’ve been in pursuit of things, people, ideas, hopes, and dreams.
Entrepreneurship is simply the pursuit of opportunity without regard to resources currently controlled – there are few better descriptions of my life than that (thanks Howard Stevenson!).
I also changed a few things on my branding page to reflect a few of these changes on my About Page – creating a bit of consistency around the board, right?
It was time to let go of a few things as well. I can no longer promise that every single blog post will be about the incredible art, science, and method of blogging but I can promise that I’ll do my best to at least create some value for you, my faithful readers.
