Once upon a time I was just another hard-working web writer trying to figure it all out.
Once upon a time I was frustrated by my corporate gig. Too chicken at that point to go out on my own, and too naive to package what I did know to be able to crush it in a corporate environment.
Once upon a time I was as dazed and confused as we all are when we start out. I had a lot of passion but I also had a bunch of gaps I needed to fill in.
And if I had to identify any turning point, when I was able to find a bit of an “Aha” moment and start to pull it all together, it just might be the first week of May, 2008.
That’s the week I attended my very first blogger’s conference — SOBCon.
I had a blog (check) and I needed to know more about how to run a business (check), so it was exactly the right fit. And it was run by super-smart folks Liz Strauss and Terry Starbucker, so I knew I was going to learn a lot.
