Powerful communications – 

Reaching out and contributing to my loved ones and hte people I’m connected to in powerful ways. Today was via email, but I’ve been on a journey to make every communication a powerful communication. I mean, its quite simple when you realize everyone and everybody has value in my life. Let’s make this work in the best way possible for the both of us. People… want it, and I want to give that.

Big ass chicken and Big ass drink. Enough said. 

A quick break to just have some fun for a secondfb_img_1478398740482


Content Creation Podcast

This is me creating a podcast to contribute to content for the site. A reservoir of information. A vessel of information in regards of knowledge hacking. developing my skills in the image that I want them to be. Trying to take some time to develop and create a chance for me to push out the skills and work that I say I want to push out. Visualizing and creating learning opportunities for myself.

Contributing works of value. I haven’t published. Its so hard to publish some times. Sometimes its hard to publish. But, I’m pushing myself to share and document as much as possible.

Setting myself up with a powerful 2017.

Trying to put something of value out. Trying to invest. And feeling uneasy about reception. Investing a lot and hoping that what I contribute is useful. Trying to speak to people in need of something a little more. I’m tryna make moves! I’m tryna be engaged. I’m tryna engage my people that I see! When I miss a move, when the energy takes me back to the move I try to engage!

Quick Networking Combo:

Hey whats up!? (Passes out business card, directs to contact info, directs to websites on the back) This is what I think. This is what I do. This is how I feel I can connect with you.

Sharing my info. Making connections

=============

Comment. Shit 🙂

Let’s connect. Let’s build what we want.

Proof of a Mentality Shift: “I’ve come so far vs I have so far to go!”

Proof of a Mentality Shift:

“I’ve come so far vs I have so far to go!”

============

n32302230_31383463_1268-1I’m sitting here in my dimly lit cabin on the Laguardia tarmac. The breeze stream is hitting nice and crisp in the face. I had my eyes closed and was bound to fall asleep. But the breeze reminds me to be in my present.

I’m here, headed to Indianapolis and Terre haute, Indiana, for a homecoming ceremony. In so many ways I’m returning to the scene of my manhood training. The place and time where I became who I am.

I immediately began to think about the track team. Sitting in my chair, I ran over my talking points. And how I need to email them to the coaches. How I needed to ask them to have paper and pencils ready for the team. Just as a back up… I’m actually more interested in them taking notes in their phones and sending it to one to two accountability partners. Someone to hear and open them up beyond their limits and dreams.

Its sentimental yo! This all started on a whim. I can remember when I used to daydream about coming back and supporting the team in some way, shape, or form. Everything I’ve ever accomplished in my young life, I feel started when I was accepted and embraced on this team as a scholarship and talented athlete. I remember early in my professional journeys knowing that opportunities were opened to me only because of the space track held on my resume.

I’m stunned and a bit overwhelmed that not only do I get to talk to some of the current track beasts on the yard. But I also get to bring my homies with me! Two of my frat brothers, and my pledge daughter are gonna be in the house sharing and re-nourishing the community we grew up and bonded in. I’m so proud and honored that they’re even willing to rock with me and take a break from the festivities to put in that work!

Speaking of frat… my line brothers, the seven of us together, will be back together, for the first time, since we were even “introduced”. SUPREMACY, the Alpha Boys whose name alone caused a slight uproar, is finally re-forming on our Voltron steez. April 10, 2005 is the day we were introduced to the yard – and from that night, we’ve appeared in chunks and in sections, but never in our final form.

img-423867273

I’m so happy to share this with y’all. These boys turned men – supported me in becoming the man I am today! My Guys, my Sandz, my Brothers, my Everything are coming back. I’m nervous and relieved. These are the kats that I slept in storefront basements with. On cardboard boxes and potato sacks. Like where the fuck did we find potato sacks at!?!?! My boys is who I learned “Will yourself through – until you find a way!” with and from.

We have been through so much, and what makes me proud and fortified is that, we were broken by our achievements. My line brothers worked their fucking asses off yo! These dudes graduated, found jobs, relocated, re-educated and remodeled their lives relent-lessly! We learned a hustle together and… if my success and drive is a proof of anything it’s that Supremacy, the Jewel Line from Zeta Rho Death Chapter, Alpha Phi Alpha, Incorporated indeed live(d) up to their name!

Seeing brothers, and the extended family they provided for me will be the blessing of the year. (As they continue to roll in one after the other)

“I’ve come so far” – is what I felt at Indiana State University. It was a useful way to think and be back then 2003 – 2007. I operated from a stance of aw and uber appreciation for everything I was given.

“I have so far to go!” – is the moniker I’m shifting to now. It’s whats pushed me to multitask and trust myself to push my limits even while I’m away. I have two workshops and community gatherings scheduled this weekend. I’m here in this earth to make moves. I’m here on this earth to push my talents. And I’m so happy to be coming back to the place that taught me all of this prepared to do even more for the community that when I first left!

Build your Website in 6 Steps w/ this Free Website Building Workbook

Build your Website in 6 Steps

w/ this Free Website Building Workbook

=============landing-page-website-building-workbook-mock-up-www-skoolhaze-com-www-paladinjordan-com

Its time we all had the web platform to sell our dreams and skills to the world! Here are 6 quick steps to help you move from idea to creation with your website idea.

1 – Decide that you’re beast enough to create a website for yourself!

Sometimes we play in the grey space of wanting to do something, but not knowing if we’re worthy. If you find yourself pondering “Should I….” lets use this as the very exercise to train us to lean on the side of YES!

We perfect the course the more we run it. And we refine ourselves as we grow. Once you’ve decided you are building a website. The rest comes easy.

 

2 – Start Compiling Your Portfolio (Physical and Electronic)

If you had to select 5 skills/traits/services you wanted to sell to the world. What would they be? What examples from your past can you use to serve as proof of these skills? Name the skills that your portfolio showcases.

Collect items in one digital space, and one physical space that showcase your skills. Portfolio pieces should demonstrate: What you do, What you sell, and What you present.

These can be current things and/or future goals. I’m big on loose interpretation with prompts like these. Save samples of work in a secure and accessible folder.  I recommend Google Drive. The word file and the pdf file.

If you don’t have these things (this moment) is actually the time to start doing that. Building a portfolio of your work.

 

3 – Research and purchase a domain name

Once I developed a sufficient portfolio, I was curious if my name was available as a url. www.PaladinJordan.com

It was, so before anyone else could grab it, and before I could try to talk myself out of it I grabbed the domain name. If your business does not already have a name. Go with whatever version of your name you can lock down. I would NOT waste more than a day thinking about my domain name. At the end of the day as long as its short, and rememberable people will use it, and you can always change it later.

You can easily check across the web to see domain and social media availability by using Namechk.com.

You can also easily purchase a domain name for cheap from one of the following domain services. I’ve used GoDaddy.com for both my SkoolHaze and PaladinJordan domains. But you can also try NameCheap.com, or HostGator.com.

Note: Please note that purchasing a domain (your online address) is different than purchasing your hosting. Think of hosting as the online house that comes up when people type in your domain (web address). Domains and Hosting can be purchased by the same service. I have not done this.

 

4 – Find and gather your most powerful pictures and video –

If you have not already been saving these in a specific place, take some time to identify the strongest images you’ve seen of yourself over the years. You primarily want these images to convey you as Strong, Purposeful, in Action, and exuding Confidence and energy toward the goal of your website.

Never underestimate the power of Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and other social media for pictures and evidence of your success. These are great pictures and can get you started. You may want to consider having professional pictures taken specifically for use in your future branding. Once I knew I was serious about creating my website. I knew I would have to get some type of pre-planned high quality pictures taken of myself. Get your friends to be paparazzi with their phones.

If you feel like you don’t have pictures, (this moment) is actually the time to start taking and collecting more pictures of your creativity, your results, and of you.

5 – Write your website copy

The part that took me the longest to do was write the copy for my website. Copy, is a publishing word for the text being used. I’ve been trying to get some free tools up for a while. And have created a 6-page Website Building Workbook to help you draft out your website copy. The Website Building Workbook is a great tool to print and fill out as you prepare to build your online space.

The sooner you have your website copy, the sooner you can build and share your website to the world! I recommend shooting for 300 to 500 words per page. Feel free to use more or less. Do not try to be perfect. Perfection will make you procrastinate more than you need. Once the copy is drafted. Identify pictures that go with each page. Format the text in a word publisher. Get an idea of what your page will look like visually before you begin the actual design.

6 – Research and Purchase a Web Hosting Client

Again, Web Hosting is the internet apartment building/house where your website lives. You can own the domain, and when people type it in, it will lead to an empty lot parked on the internet waiting for you to host something. Hosting is structure that houses the “physical/graphical” pages and platform for your website. There are many different hosting services. I would choose between Squarespace, WordPress.org, or Wix.com. Once you choose your hosting client, upload your website copy into the service building out your pages bit by bit. Aim to keep the look and formatting of your site as close to it was in your mock ups as possible.

SquareSpace Website

Wix Free Website

When done, review, and launch. If you already have your ideas I say you can have your website up in as little as a weekend.

Good Luck building those brands. I would definitely love to hear about the websites you’ve opened and your thoughts in the comments.
