People tell me I have a great story:
I overcame alcohol and drug addiction at 70 years old.
Lost 60 pounds over four years, 38 pounds recently.
Completely changed my physical appearance.
I am a war veteran, a musician, a stand up comedian, a writer and a professional chef.
I was incarcerated for a year at 16 years old and developed into an upstanding citizen.
I became a fitness professional, specializing in nutrition, weight loss and senior fitness.
I studied music at the prestigious Berklee College of Music.
Crawled out of financial disaster.
Rose to the top in radiopharmaceutical sales, brandishing only a G.E.D. (Long story.)
Created my own multimedia position in Big pharma.
I have been a video producer for more than 20 years.
Implemented e-mail marketing in Bristol Myers-Squibb. (In 2003)
Had entrepreneurial success with my own multimedia business, Double O Creative.
Worked with large biotech companies all over the Boston area.
This blog, “The Enlightened Rogue” has more than a million hits.
I have been running 5 miles every night for the past 31 months. (But who’s counting?)
Started “Enlightened Rogue Fitness” to help seniors like myself, get, and stay healthy.
I agree that I have a good story, but people don’t care about my story.
People only care about how my story impacts their story.
I get that, and that’s another story. 🙂
