I’ve been rather useless on this site lately, but the reasons are valid. I’ve hinted a few times that I have some rather big news, and now is the time to share it to the world.
On Monday I will finish up my day job and become a Full Time, Self Employed, Self Made Man. It’s a very exciting, busy, and quite terrifying time; but overall I can’t wait to get started and hold my own destiny in hand.
What Will I Do?
I have two main outlooks: the first is to concentrate on my own writing, release my novel, and begin new projects.
The second is to become a Strategic Marketing Consultant who offers marketing advice to Businesses and Writers.
I honestly feel there’s a gap in the market as the majority of Marketing Consultants I’ve met/come across are rather old school. The flip reverse to this are the Social Media Guru’s out there, but I don’t think either provide all the answers.
This is where I plan to make a mark.
I won’t go into details too much right now, but I’ve already began creating my platform and hope to be set up and ready for the 1st June. I have a busy few weeks ahead of me, but I couldn’t be happier.
This is a quick overview of what I will be doing:
– Strategic Marketing Consultancy for Businesses
– Author Platform Consultancy for Writers
– Freelance Content Marketing Services (Blog Series, Ebooks, Presentations)
– Professional Speaking (both in a marketing and writing capacity)
– Work on my own Fictional work
– Work on my own Non-Fiction work
It’s going to be hard, as both the publishing and consultancy market is crowded. I love a challenge though and have some ideas to help set me apart 🙂
First of all I want to send out huge thanks to Reactiv Group, and I leave on the best of terms. I’ve loved my time there, but my role was going to change moving forward so I felt as though I had three choices:
– Stay and do a job I didn’t really want to be doing
– Look for a new job in an unstable climate
– Have some balls and set up on my own
Setting up on my own has been something I’ve considered for a while, but the plan was to do it in a few years time. Sometimes circumstances encourage you to move though, and I couldn’t be happier, more excited, and raring to go.
So, What Now?
As I say, my last day is Monday and then the journey begins. I’ve already done quite a lot of groundwork, and the whole of May will finish this off. I won’t bore you with the details of my schedule, but what this does mean is my site will be rather quiet in the next month. I will still post the odd article, but most of my content is reserved for the brand new, soon to be kick ass site.
I hope to go live in June, if not sooner, and it will be complete with FREE Ebooks, a backlog of posts, and a host of new features. As you can imagine, May is going to be busy 🙂
I’m really excited about this new adventure and I’ve already had some great meetings with friends and mentors. I’m entering two very large markets (Publishing and Marketing Consultancy), but I honestly believe I have something few others offer. It will take time, but I’m ready for a great adventure.
That’s all I’ll say right now as I have plans for quite a few Posts that cover my transition. I hope it will make the summer months rather exciting on the Turndog Millionaire Site
So there you go, wish me luck guys and gals. If you have any advice for me, any leads, or want to discuss things in more detail please leave a comment or send me an email.
I urge all and any support/advice, so please get in touch.
