Wow, was able to articulate how I want to be when I grow up today!
Don't get such an epiphany every Monday morning (lol). I think this personal revelation started when I wrote SEO and Data Got A Thing Going On (http://scenttrail.blogspot.com/2012/11/seo-and-data-got-thing-going-on.html ) sitting at my favorite restaurant after Free Internet Marketing Consulting Saturday concluded.
The idea is to spend time building things and giving back. Here is what we are building:
* ScentTrail Marketing with a new "Social Content Management System (CMS)".
* Story of Cancer Trust - use technology to bridge gap between doctors and patients to help cure cancer.
Yes, this is like saying I want to climb Everest and K2 in the same month, but what is a BHAG (Big, Hairy, Audacious Goal) without some RISK?
For doubters out there I would point out that even my mother didn't believe I could ride a bicycle across America. Martin's Ride To Cure Cancer (http://www.MartinsRide.com) did that raising funds for cancer research.
As mothers do mine was worried. "Martin," she said to me more than once, "you can get to the Mississippi and since that is a big body of water call your goal accomplished".
What mom didn't realize is if I could make it to the mighty Mississippi I could make it to Santa Monica. If we can do one of these BHAGs we can do them both due to the magic of the Internet and the help of smart friends :).
To have a chance of accomplishing either of these goals I will need a great TEAM. Hope you will consider becoming part of our team by....

Knowing what you want to be when you grow up is magical even if it hapens weeks before your 55th birthday (lol). Better LATE than NEVER.
Hope you will join me for the ride (or the arduous climb LOL). Going to be fun, hard but fun like most things worth doing in life :).
