This one is totally spur of the moment. It was actually initiated by one of my new brothers via GramStep Omar Best-Delice. His piercing questions have pushed me at me hard to just express myself.
You asked me so what's next for you? You story has been one of pioneering and evangelizing the idea of social media, building this little world around CoreyKGraham.Me. and of social media.
To answer this I must go back to the source. All this I have created was around the idea of –
- to be more respected so that I can have conversation with other progressive persons
- to help push the idea of social media
- to be able to express myself a little better
- to prepare myself for the "job" I wanted – i.e. to be an entrepreneur
The thing about, is that I accomplished just what I set out to do. I have had some fantastic experiences via my blog and general online presence. I have been able to to meet some truly amazing people. Not just the international folk, but some Caribbean people who are really making things happen. Many of them who labour away in the shadows, just following their dream. In one case I was actually hired to put a social media program in place for a business I blogged about. What an experience that was.
When I just getting established as a blogger, it was very much based on the truth. It truly was about the thoughts, ideas and experiences I have experienced. It was not just my own thoughts and ideas, it was the shared views of other persons I have interacted with. This truth and realism has been the corner stone of success of my blog, it has been the very thing that has eluded me in recent months as I evolved into an a full fledged entrepreneur.
After watching the Forbes – Jayz – Warren Buffet interview, where the 2 big men spoke frequently about this "truth". It reminded me of the missing piece of the puzzle. There is so much you can learn from them, they have started me down the path of re-connection.
Another key part of my reconnection is my joy, when I learnt of another brother's accomplishment Mr. Paul Batson. Truly and inspiring story. He is featured in Multiple Streams of Inspiration Book
Connected & Going Forward
I must thank, Jeremy Stephen for partnering with me to create the business networking session GramStep – it has truly been a gift. We have been able to create the environment for young entrepreneurs to keep inspired and to work together to grown their businesses. It feels great!
As I write this post taking a look back at where I have come from this is something that makes me smile. It aligns perfectly with my aim for 2009 and beyond. Since 2009 I have taken the time to invest in some persons who are really going to tremendous ways. I fail to mention them right now because I want for them to have the space to develop and grow in their own right.
GramStep takes it a step further and really solidifies my commitment to building a strong and lasting network that can be of service to the Caribbean and the world.
It is my aim, to use this platform to connect with persons around the world and to play my part in creating positive changes in the world. This is my service.
