Life is full of interactions. There is a certain point in each interaction when the ineviable happens. "So, what do you do?" Most people swiftly answer this question with words like, "I work at..., I'm in college/uni studying..." Unfortunately my response is not so simple. With a confused grin on my face I respond,"Well... I'm a full time dream chaser". Unlike being in college doing a construction course my response leaves the listener feeling that their question has not yet been answered. I use this response because in general, I dont have enough time in an interaction to explain all of my diverse endeavours without blowing up the listeners brains and making them briskly go on to the next person in the room.
As children we are told not to judge a book by its cover but we are creatures of habit and can't help it. Imagine an average looking 16 year old talking about business ideas, community initiatives, public speaking, art and riding scooters, you would be left feeling both confused and overwhelmed. That is not a great first impression.
Noticing this problem, I decided to create this space(website) that will hopefully give the viewer a peak into all of my roles and endeavours. So now when asked what I do, I will still respond with my party line (full time dream chaser) but also give them the information about my website, so in their own time they can see what a full time dream chaser actually does.
