I Guess It’s Time We Get Back Online!

by chestin on December 29, 2009

As 2009 is winding down, I’ve been going through my customary process of reviewing the past year and making plans for the upcoming year.  As I was doing that this past weekend, I was actually quite surprised at everything we’d done, both as a family and individually.

As I was reliving some of the moments and experiences in my head, I was a tad bit sad when it hit me that the only place I really had any record of these memorable moments was in fact, inside my thick skull.  And as far too many of you know, it’s a rather difficult chore to try and retrieve things once they get stuck there!

So, one of my goals for 2010 is to do a better job of recording all of our triumphs, challenges, surprises, and just overall memorable moments.  I also figured that since most of my  family doesn’t live anywhere close to us that I needed to do something to share these moments with them as well.

As a result, the 2nd incarnation of the ‘Sharon and Chestin’ website is born.  We did it once before as a way to show the wedding proposal video I did for Sharon, but it become completely neglected and at one point was totally screwed up thanks to my constant tinkering.  I’ve had the domain name for a while and now thanks to my Host Gator account that allows me to host multiple websites without having to pay hosting for each one individually, I figured now was as good a time as any to bring this puppy back to life.

So, over the next year (and hopefully beyond that!) you’ll be able to peek in on our mostly dull and boring lives.  Sharon is a successful real estate agent with Keller Williams here in the Rock Hill SC/Fort Mill SC area.  She’s only been in a the business a little over 2 years and she’s already top 10 in an office that has some pretty high earners and teams.

I do a lot of her marketing and whether she realizes it or not, my goal for her is to break into the top 5 for her office in 2010.  That means she’ll have a lot of work to do, but I don’t know anyone that’s as focused and dedicated to helping her clients as she is.  I have no doubt that she’ll be able to close the business if I can just bring it to her, so when it comes right down to it, the burden really falls on my shoulders.

As far as I’m concerned, I’d describe myself as a serial entrepreneur.  I have my own marketing firm where I consult, coach, and basically help other small businesses generate qualified leads and new customers for their business. I do a lot of Internet marketing for both myself and my clients, and that really means quite a few things, but basically I specialize in using the Internet to help my clients grow their business.

What that means for you is that you’ll probably see some crazy links every now and then and maybe even some banner ads for a particular product or service I’m promoting.  Even though the purpose of this site is to give everyone a peek into our lives, it will also be part of my laboratory of marketing ‘stuff’ so  whether you like it or not, by coming here you’re volunteering to be a test subject.

Don’t worry though, there won’t be any needles involved.  I promise!

Now, I’m going to try to get Sharon to post stuff periodically, but if her track record at posting stuff on her real estate website is any indication, you may not hear from her very often.  Hopefully if enough people tell her they read our new family blog, that will provide a little motivation to post every once in a while.

Anyway, thanks for stopping by, check back frequently, and feel free to leave your comments whenever you like.  I can’t promise we’ll always respond, but the chances are pretty good we’ll definitely see them!
