Hello again fellow leaders. It’s a been a long time since I last posted an article on my blog. I wanted to share with you what’s been going on in my life for the past couple of years and my plans for this blog.
My family moved from San Diego to Redding California at the end of 2017. I started a high demanding position with Shasta County which took up most of my time, energy, and creativity. In 2018 my wife and myself started the journey of being foster parents while I still worked for Shasta County. On top of this, my son had several health conditions which caused him to undergo 3 different brain surgeries (to replace or repair the shunt he has in his head) since moving to the Redding CA, area.
My focus moved away from writing and growing my online platform to full engagement with my family and job position. During this time, I have maintained the habit of reading books and in my spare time I concentrated on self-care. Over the past couple of years my heart has kept tugging at me to start writing and posting articles again and to launch into consulting work. I’m taking the steps toward what I know I’m called to do in life which is to write and teach on the topic of leadership/influence. I want to help other people increase and steward their influence.
What does that mean to my readers, you might ask. My goal is to publish a new article on a weekly basis, on Mondays. The articles will be on the topics of influence, personal growth, self-care, and strengths & weakness. I feel the most competent in those areas since I’ve written, learned, and worked in those areas for over 15 years. I know my knowledge and experience can help my readers to increase their influence. The rest of my available time will be focused on consulting work and working on projects (like books and learning materials).
I hope you will follow me on my journey. I believe if you do you will grow as a person of influence.
