Goals for Life, Hectick, and Personal Branding
It has been a minute since I have written any content. I think it is a good time to quick go through and vent what has been happening the past year or two. As well as write up some of the challenges and goals I have for my life, personal brand, and Hectick.
What’s Been Happening?
Life over the course of 2-3 years quite a few things have happened. First we had the unfortunate event of a tragic car accidents involving my children. This resulted in a small yet taxing custody battle that was eventually settled with no major negative or positive change. Life has been a crazy blur of school, sports, work, family, and friends. Honestly I can say it has been good overall and the years have been very fruitful for myself and my family. We had the opportunity to purchase our very first home (Condo) this year which has been a massive goal for me and Megan (wife).
Hectick as a brand has been VERY dormant and a secondary focus for me. I have also had a few different envisionments for it as a whole. Overall I will continue to support Hectick and what it represents but my main focus will be around art and sharing the brand visually. I am looking to make a few shirts, hats, coins, and a few one-of-a-kind statues or miniatures created.
As for personal branding that is a rather new concept to me. I have been working on a brand that I am hoping to turn into a lifestyle brand but I have not focussed on me as an individual. Fortunately I got to listen to a few awesome speakers that specialize in personal branding as well as reading a few books on the subject. With that said I am working on creating some personal logos and getting personal assets in place.
So What’s Next?
For life I am looking to get in better shape going forward. I have started a new way of dieting that has been successful for me in the past. I also have a core goal of losing 100 pounds this year. My kids are going to help me as well with more physical activity. I got my daughter Kaitlyn to play Pokemon Go with me and my other two love sports. Which means I will have more motivation to move with little ones to give me shit if I don’t want to :) . As a family we are planning to do more things this year as well between camping, fossil hunting, and mini roadtrips it should be an eventful year. I will also be updating my blog more frequently in place of the average social media post.
For Hectick I am looking to create 20-30 designs that I can sell. I am also looking to get more collaboration from other artists and designers. I will begin promoting the brand with my own clothing and lifestyle choices (weight loss).
For my personal brand I am looking to establish myself as a proven expert. I will do this by furthering my own brand and life. I will also look to speak at least once this year. I am considering doing a web series or at least documenting with video my process for making money online. Overall my montra will be what it was several years ago “Get it done!”. With that little saying in the back of my head I know I will get all of this done without bitching or excuses.
