…As in, this is the first blog post.
I have owned the “.com” version of my name forever.
For a long time it pointed to my LinkedIn profile as I never really knew what to do with it. I considered starting a personal blog many times, but this time it’s different.
In the past I had grandiose plans of building up a “personal brand”, but I no longer have that interest.
Well, scratch that. It would be nice, but being an entrepreneur has taught me some valuable lessons about building a brand… least of which is that it’s freaking hard.
I simply don’t have the energy or hours to dedicate to such an endeavor.
So what’s the point of justinferriman.com?
Over the years I have learned that I need to create headspace if I am going to be effective as an entrepreneur, husband, brother, son, friend, etc. My mind has been known to hold me hostage if I don’t get my thoughts out “on to paper”.
This site is that paper. It’s the place where I get to share things that I feel are important.
You might not find these same things important. And I’m okay with that.
You see, once my thoughts are out and “on paper”, they are no longer spinning in my head and it leaves space for me to think about other (important and not-so-important) things.
So here we are. The first blog post of hopefully many, but I really don’t have an agenda. This site may go weeks without a post, or may get multiple per week – I suppose it all depends on what I need to get out of my head.
