2017: The Year of “Cuz I Aint Playin With Yall!”

It’s simple.  2016 was the year of exploring and pushing for growth.

2017 is the year of me doing everything in my hearts desire.

Why

Cuz I Aint Playin With Yall!

 

I really don’t even care. I’m going so hard in the fucking paint I don’t even have time to be scared or nervous.

Why

Cuz I Aint Playin With Yall.

 

There’s so much that needs to be done. So much activity that needs to happen. So much organizing. So much enrichment.

I don’t even mean to whine. I just want to be in action, personally engaged, and an agent of change.

Cuz I Aint Playin With Yall.

 

I’m so ready to be selfish in this. Its well over do!

Cuz I Aint Playin With Yall.

 

There’s so much abundance in the world. I have the ability to bring forth whatever change, growth, and community I wish to bring forth. I’m lucky enough to know that I’m skilled and connected enough to make it happen.

I’m Not Even Playin With Yall!

 

Over this next year I declare to move in action and in purpose of developing and activating my community. You will see my actions and my content reflect that! Today,  my communications were purposeful. My messaging intentioned. I asked a buddy of mine. A Powerful and Giving brother. When Are You Going To Step Into Being The Expert!?

I Aint Playin With Yall!

 

I was asking him. But I was talking to Me! I’m an Expert! I choose to be! I choose to move like one. I choose aspire to be one! An Expert in Developing and Activating My Community!

I am Not Playing With Yall!

 

I’m getting chills just releasing this. I’m not even playin yall.

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.

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 🙂

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.

website-building-workbook-mock-up-www-skoolhaze-com-www-paladinjordan-com

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.

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.

Opening Yourself up for Powerful Relationships

Opening Yourself Up For

Powerful Relationships

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

This video is about being intentional in my relationships.

Before I could begin to change my relationships with my family, peers, and friends. I first had to change my relationship with myself. For too long I had negative beliefs about myself that were more than just bad things I thought about myself. These beliefs actually became immovable hurdles that prevented me from feeling comfortable finding new ground with my relationships with others in my life.

What beliefs do you have about yourself that STOP YOU from doing great things?

rebuild-definition www.skoolhaze.com

Have you taken inventory of –

Beliefs that hold you small.

Beliefs that hold you back from your greatness.

The idea that I was awkward and shy prevented me from ever even needing to try new things to meet new people. I already knew the answer to how these situations would turn out. BAD, so why change it up.

Once I declared that my relationships would change, it wasn’t long before these beliefs started to dissolve and disappear into my past.

Now that’s not to say that I’m not awkward, and that I’m not still shy. It goes to show that once you realize that your beliefs don’t define you forever, then you’re able to do the ground-work to establish newer and greater things in your life. Which a lot of times means leaving your old habits and thoughts behind. BYE BYE shy/awkward dude. Hello homie that’s ready to make things happen!

My belief that I was socially awkward immediately would make me come up with reasons why I couldn’t attend social and public events. It was debilitating even. My default was no, and that prevented me from being exposed to so many great people and even more great opportunities.

I’m happy that i’m experiencing what its like to be opening myself up for powerful relationships. I’ve been doing the work for less than a month, and like I said in the video, I’m already feeling the return on my investment. There were days when I would look at my phone over the course of hours and never get more than one text. NOW, since I’ve changed my beliefs about myself, which have led to new and focused behaviors. I’m generally sitting on about 10 msgs/notifications just waiting to be responded to.

If I can do that, y’all damn sure can do what you’re looking to do!

What is the vision you have for your relationships?

Share it below. Let’s brainstorm our growth together!

I’ve declared that I’m working to support my audience in sharing their voice. That audience is 20 – 40 year old creatives, entrepreneurs, and activists. I’m happy to be moving to a place of helping people where they are, and hopefully giving them the tools for their own personal exploration and discovery.

There is an immense need to have voice and representation of people like YOU for people like YOU to consume and connect with. If you’ve ever thought about sharing your voice. Consider starting a blog. You can posts your thoughts, youtubes, pictures, videos, podcasts, almost anything on your personal space.

Contribute to the new voices that are coming out and making impacts within our community!

If you do start a blog. shoot me your name. I’ll follow you and definitely support your efforts.
