Why being an octopus is important?

A multi-pronged approach.

We’re living in very interesting times.

At any time, should we wish to do so - and had the means to, we can get in touch with anyone from any corner of the world.

We can ‘drop by’ in online forums, chats, groups, and whatnot, introduce ourselves, and get a conversation going about something interesting we did last week.

We can also put our names on places where people will visit and wonder ‘who dis?’

We can cherry pick any topic we want and offer our two cents and share that article among people who will either appreciate or criticize those opinions.

We can come together and have a real verbal conversation with other people from all over the world, and let the whole conversation be viewed by anyone for perpetuity.

These things that I’ve mentioned are just a few ways that we can put our name ‘out there’ so that when anyone decides to ‘look us up’ (trust me, they will) what we are as people, what we know, and what we stand for is pretty easy to see.

If anyone decided to find someone like you, guess what, you’ll be easy to find since you’re already pretty ‘out there’.

This can help you with jobs, business opportunities, friends, and other areas of life.

You know, the areas where most people usually struggle with.

And the amount of people who take advantage of this?

Very few.


If you want the middle class, average life in the suburbs, mazel tov!

But if you want to live your life on your own terms, have your own plans, do your own thing, then you better start getting out there and differentiate yourself from the rest of the population.
