I'm taking an indefinite hiatus from 𝕏

Published 4 months ago • 1 min read

Dear Friends:

Today, I'm announcing I'll be taking an indefinite hiatus from 𝕏.

Over the weekend I had a moment of clarity and I realized the stuff I was doing on 𝕏 no longer aligned with my goals as an online creator.

When I first started building on 𝕏 back in June 2023, I was doing it because I wanted to drive traffic to my copywriting and web design offers.

Shortly after I started posting on 𝕏, I got swept up into the whirlwind that is Money Twitter and lost sight of my goals.

Then, around October, I began experimenting with LinkedIn.

I thoroughly enjoyed the couple weeks I was hanging out there.

I met some cool people and had loads of fun interacting.

It was a different vibe than 𝕏 — and I liked it...

But I realized I was spreading myself thin.

So I went back solely to 𝕏 and continued on with my posting, engagement, and everything else...

Neglecting my goal of building my e-mail marketing business.

I'm realizing it's now time for me to get back on mission, to build this business.

I want to build my YouTube channel.
I want to build my personal brand on LinkedIn.
I want to build my e-mail marketing business.

𝕏 doesn't really have a place in there.

So I'm done for the time-being.

In the future, I might hire a ghostwriter to handle my 𝕏 account, but until then, it's gonna be mostly a "dead account."

My plan going forward is to post a few times a week on LinkedIn (not three times a day as I was doing on 𝕏), one video per week on YouTube, and spending tons of time responding to various advertisements for e-mail marketers on job boards and freelance websites.

There's more to this story, but we won't get into it right now.

Thank you for being here on this journey with me. I hope you'll join me on LinkedIn and YouTube... it's gonna be a fun 2024. :)

Talk soon,
Neil

We were at Greenfield Village over the weekend taking in the beautiful Michigan spring. In one area of the Village, there's a soccer field. There was no one on the field. My son loves open fields... he's big into running, plus he's becoming a great soccer player. I told him to go down to the field and run around... because why not? As he was running to the field, I noticed a few geese on the sidelines. One of the geese stood up and started walking toward him. "Solomon," I shouted. "That geese...

After taking about four months away from personal branding and online business, I'm back at it. It has been a busy four months — my daughter was born in December, and between my 9-5, sleepless nights, and handling bureaucratic nonsense with health insurance (don't get me started), I didn't have much time to tend to my personal brand or online business. Thankfully, my little girl is mostly sleeping through the night and we're getting some decent rest. Welcome to all the new subscribers! I want...

For 42 years, Uncle Bill busted his rear working at the Chrysler Transmission plant in Kokomo, Indiana. Not a bad career... it was labor intensive and back-breaking work, but all-in-all, not a bad career. Uncle Bill was a smart guy. A history buff. Well-spoken. Could fix just about anything. He was a strong, masculine leader. He took great care of his wife (my aunt) and his kids (my cousins). He called me "The Bubble Gum Kid" — because during my childhood I went through a phase where I loved...
