Launching a website; one where you’re marketing… yourself! Your ideas, your experience, your strengths. The kind of website you’re now looking at. It’s challenging, I promise you that.
It has taken me a few years to grow into the idea. For a long time, I wondered how to present myself. What was it going to be about? I’ve been teaching courses about many different subjects: technical, soft skills, … Why? Because I never wanted to be a specialist. I’ve always been broadly curious. There’s only one thing that really seems to be built into my genes: speaking. So when the haze finally cleared up, that was the one thing left standing.
For years, that felt like “not enough”. But it is enough. This blog is for me and for you. It’s me packaged for you. Who knows what exactly it will lead to? The important point is to do it, to get better at it as I go, and to see the new opportunities that result from it. How do I know there will be any? Well, whatever creative work you do, new opportunities always follow.
Today, with the help of absolutely awesome website specialist Wim Bommerez, it gives me great pleasure to publicly launch this thing.
I look forward to your comments!
