I am a “maker” – the term I’ve settled on to describe the thing I do, when asked by new acquaintances. I used to answer “web developer” or “graphic designer” – whichever money making thing I was doing happily at the time. Before that I was a ‘carpet guy’ or a ‘pond expert’ – always something different, but always skilled work in some capacity.
It took a visit down to Silicon Valley, through acceptance into Y Combinator to recognize that I can’t accurately bill myself as any one of those prior titles – at least, not on the world stage. Among these people; world class co-founders, entrepreneurs and true experts of their domain I realized my folly.
The truth is, my varied skill set is both a blessing and a curse. I can help with your website, as well as your marketing, and then build you some furniture… and therein lies me, finding my focus.
