So if you know me, you know that while I mean well and have the best intentions, I’m one scatter-brained dude, always consuming and outputting as much information and *stuff* as possible. I follow so many talented people in the social media space and have so many feeds and streams of information coming at me from so many directions that I was finding it hard to man handle all of it, let alone (and most imortantly) be able to methodically share the stories and tidbits I found with all the people I know that could benefit. The other side of this is that my personal and business life overlap a LOT and I wanted to organize that at least a little bit so that I could focus on having some sort of non-business side to my personal life and some sort of non-personal side to my business life.
I created a Facebook Fan page for ‘The 47 Project’. I know your first thought is probably: What a self-absorbed narcisitic jackass. While I do overshare and generate tons of my own original content, this fan page is going to be 5% content created by me, and 95% created by everyone else in the social media space. There will of course be some smatterings of humor, personal commentary, etc. but that’s about it from me. I like being the messenger.
I think if we all spent more time unearthing someone else’s talent and lifting them up than we do ourselves, the world would be a better place.
