I have never been a big fan of blog pages.
But they do play their part in showing you the thinking of the person who set up the web site, so there’s a good chance I’ll come around to the idea.
For now though, if you want to learn more about Stephen J. Carter (that’s me, of course) I strongly recommend you put yourself on my newsletter.
You can find the newsletter opt-in form at the top or bottom of this page.
If you do that then for the next 30 days I will send you a series of very personal messages which will give you an excellent idea of who I am.
I got this notion of doing a self-disclosure series from Megan Macedo, a London-based marketing consultant and copywriter.
Megan specializes in what she calls Be Yourself marketing.
Megan is a master at creating intimate communications between herself and her subscribers.
In this respect she is strikingly different from just about every other email marketer I’ve come across.
I have not tried to reproduce exactly the approach she uses to disclose who she is and what she stands for.
For one thing, I am not her.
On reflection it is evident to me that Megan’s upbringing and mine must have been quite dissimilar because her stories and lessons typically involve her interactions with other people.
Mine, decidedly less so.
Still, you’ll learn all the most important things there are to know about me if you ride out my disclosure series.
Certainly if you are at all curious about the possibility of us working together you will want to go through the series.
It is also the only way you can get access to my wait list and put yourself on it (I know, kind of sneaky, right?)
I suggest you think of it like this: if you cannot make it through the full 30 days – if I’m too boring, or too weird, or otherwise just too much NOT what you were expecting – there’s a good chance we won’t prove compatible for any long-term project.
Better to figure this out in the next 30 days BEFORE we commit to each other – rather than to discover this unfortunate reality later, after we have both invested time, effort and resources into something that won’t become all it might have become.
That makes sense, right?
So that’s my rationale for writing just a solitary blog post for the time being and directing you to my newsletter instead.
Go get on it now.
Seriously – I may be a little biased, but I can’t help thinking this thing is going to be great.
Like bees knees with chocolate sprinkles on top kinda great.
So yeah, just consider that before you hop away from this page!
