Those who know me know I can be a creative fire-starter and a great person to have round the table during a brainstorm. They know I can be tangential, ahead of various curves & 'out of the box' enough to come up with a killer angle. I am very good in some areas (digital, green, publishing etc) but generally good across the board.
So I thought it would be fun to start testing myself publicly, hence this offer of free help.
Why am I doing this?
I recognise that Seth Godin & Cluetrain are right: one must be a purple cow and one must be part of the conversation. By helping people for free I believe I am achieving both.
Simply post a comment below outlining your idea. If your idea appeals to me I will get in touch, work it through with you (if it needs it) and write up the answer as a blog post. I would appreciate a response from you after that of course.
If I manage to do one a month that would be a good starting target. Others may help even if I don't. I won't be able to do this for everyone obviously but I'll do my best to help when and where I can.
Why do you have to publicly post your idea?
Well you need to be part of the conversation too. Plus by posting your idea publicly I hope you'll feel pressure to act on it before others do :) And if you don't act on it then why shouldn't someone else? Don't be so selfish ;)
Doors open folks, come on in!
