Opening Scene

I’m sitting in a staff meeting in the cafe downstairs talking goal setting – there are about eight of us.  The coffee service is slow and the background music is a little louder than you’d expect at that time of morning.  My multimedia producer is doodling on his note pad.  Jimmy Henrdix’s Purple Haze suddenly comes over the sound system.  We both look up at each other and smile.  That’s a bit edgy for a Club Cafe but it gets our attention.

  6. Start Lean Pivot Go !

Go and the Steps to Get There

I’m back blogging – there are a number of reasons why?

  1. Capture and share thoughts, ideas and stuff that I find  interesting (and hopefully you do to)
  2. Using this channel to test and apply new learnings and skills – (from WordPress and photography  to integrating new technologies)
  3. Build personal brand


From a Personal Brand perspective

I’m interested/ intrigued by the Cindy Gallop and a recent article I read (but can’t find now) regarding the changes in culture around online/ offline personas  (I need a better workflow for capturing and saving links – maybe Evernote)

Where does this fit within alter egos – the Banksy’s and the mystery bloggers who for whatever reason do not want to be identified?

Is what is here – fun, entertaining, informative or engaging?   Does what you say represent who you are?  Seth Godin talks about the Purple Cow, an ad rep talks about what’s the point of mediocre advertising.?  It’s about getting cut through the noise and clutter.  Is it your voice?

The cafe owner must have thought that Jimmy was a little bit too abrasive and switches back to comfort pop.   Now what was the boss saying?
