Contemplating a Bit of a Course Change

Y’all know that a big part of the whole exercise here at SuccessCREEations involves a certain amount of introspection. The idea has been to explore ideas tips and strategies so we can all become more successful.

As I noted yesterday, some of that introspection involves finding where our passions lie. I am exploring and doing some heavy thinking along that vein keeping my eyes out for whatever treasures I can find along the way.

Obviously one of my passions is blogging. I like sharing ideas and the community of people from all over the world that can connections all over the world that blogs do better than most other avenues.

Another of my passions is business. Business is what makes the world go round. I know you may have thought it was money that kept things moving. But it takes businesses to create the goods and services which generate the money to make the world go round.

So along that line I am going to be adding a Fifth Dimension to SuccessCREEations. In addition to talking about Financial, Physical, Relational, and Spiritual health we will be talking about Business health as well. Sure that’s a wide open field. So I expect I’ll be focusing on how the other four dimensions interact with business and individual businesses.

I don’t have the details worked yet. But that’s OK. We’re all about discovering together here. But for now I can see taking a closer look at businesses who blog. A couple of folks that I will be watching more closely in the coming days are Mike Sansone over at ConverStations and Easton Ellsworth at BusinessBlogWire.

Both of these guys have been following blogging as it relates to the business world for quite some time now. Their stuff fits well into those two passions of mine. And I think it is fitting that both of them show up over on the left side bar as Recent Visitors here. (Hi Guys!)

So in the coming days expect to see more business related content here. And feel free to jump in and give us your two cents. This is an open dialog kinda place.

  1. Hi right back atcha:-)

    I think the Fifth Dimension of Business will be a great addition. Each of the other four should and do stay with us in our business life…and sometimes we should treat the other four more like a business, hmm?

    I’ll look forward to watching (and learning from) how you work it in. Stay contagious!

  2. Chris, you’re filling a space I didn’t know was there. In the beginning of the post, I read to be polite, thinking “what do I need with a business blog? I’m a writer!” Well, to paraphrase Mike, writers need to know the business end as well as the art. Fantastic idea.

  3. I shoulda known Mike would beat me to the comments! Thanks for linking to me, Chris. Lately at my blog, I’ve been focusing on Fortune 500 companies and what they’re doing or not doing as far as blogs and other social media are concerned. The collective “business health” of the Fortune 500 depends more and more each year on how these companies use the Web.

    Looking forward to reading your posts on this new angle, as well what you’re already producing!

  4. Mike and Easton, I see you guys as the cutting edge Guru’s of the skillful application of blogging in the business world. I’ve already learned tons about blogging from the both of you. And I have no intention of stopping my school time!

    Carolyn, I’m with you. I think the rest of us have some catching up to do. So many of us operate in this fictional world of “compartmentalization” not realizing how interconnected everything is.

  5. Btw, since you mention the spiritual aspect and because I know your other blog, I mean to mention something for some time.

    Do you know these guys?

    Maybe it’s ooold news and you already know them and have an opinion about them, but if not, there might be interesting stuff be found there. Could also be that you don’t like it or something in between, but I thought I’d just mention it.


  6. Thanks for the link, Marcus. I looked through the material and I see that it is not for me. But it is a good idea to know what is out there and see what other folks are saying.

    I hadn’t heard of them before so it was worth the time it took to check them out.

  7. Ahh, I see. I’m not into that particular material either, but somehow had the hunch to share this with you. Maybe it will be good for something at a later point :-)
