Why I Have a Website

My website helps me accomplish 4 things: gain clarity, save time, build trust, and protect  my brand.

Gain Clarity

When I create posts, I must respect the audience’s time. My ideas must become easy to transmit. I get to the point and say what needs to be said.

Save Time

I find myself having the same conversation with different people. Rather than repeating myself, I can refer people to specific posts. Also, the site enables me to express myself 24/7/365 without having to actually be there. This scales my impact faster.

Build Trust

People gain a feel for the way I communicate. When they see consistency, they know I mean what I say. This added trust brings opportunities that would not exist otherwise.

Protect My Brand

A brand is really a reputation earned when we make a promise and live up to our word. Building, owning, and maintaining my website is insurance for my brand. Many creative undertakings fail; however, my website gives me an opportunity to recover gracefully if an endeavor runs its course.

In Sum

My personal website helps me gain clarity, save time, build trust, and protect my brand. Using this tool brings me wonderful relationships and opportunities. You too can do the same for yourself.
