Sometimes we find ourselves doing the most unexpected things.
My background is in theatre. A little under 20 years of theatre — 12 of those years being a full-time pursuit of the professional life.
And today? I strategize and write. About theatre? Oh, no. At least — not yet. Here’s what I write about/have written about:
- Marketing and Sales.
- Premise Security.
- CPA and Benefit Plan Audits.
- Video Development.
- Shark Tank.
- Spiritual Formation.
- Green Living.
…and the list keeps growing and growing DAILY.
I’ve always loved writing, but I never thought I’d be writing about the above topics.
Recently a coworker asked me, “What has been the most difficult thing to write about?” After thinking about it for a spell, I answered, “I genuinely have enjoyed writing about everything.”
And it’s true, for the most part. I just love learning new things and putting on different hats. If something is a little “dry,” I just imagine I’m a CPA in a play and have to get into character.
And that’s what DRIVES me. I use my background — what I’ve actually been trained in — to inform my present. And it works — for me.
That’s how I’ve found myself doing the most unexpected things.
- What are the unexpected things that you’re doing in life? How has your background informed your present?
