Today I had an interesting time with an experienced business person that I meet with from time to time as a business coach.
I love catching up with him for a number of reasons – for one he’s got some wonderful experience and has built himself a successful business that is doing some fascinating work – but the main reason being that whilst he has a good understanding of blogging he is not enmeshed in it like I am and as an outsider with some business smarts he always has some useful perspective on what I’m doing.
Today as we chatted about the business that I’m building and the opportunities (and frustrations) before me I was amazed by the potential that blogging has in so many contexts. The more we chatted the more ideas came – not only for new blogs that I could run but particularly for ways in which to use the knowledge I have gathered of blogging to apply it to a vast array of other contexts and businesses (some of which for profit, others for the good of others – and some for both).
The problem is not that there are not enough possibilities but instead that they are virtually unlimited. The mind boggles as the myriad of ways blogging can be used.
The task ahead for us in the month or two ahead is to start mapping out some different scenarios and then placing some strategies in place to see the best of them come to be. I’m looking forward to sharing more as we move ahead with the tasks at hand.
