This is it, folks. Post #100. In a few short minutes, I am going to D-O-N-E with this project.
…But not really.
Because now I have to do something with it. So, nothing stops here but the daily posts. And…
I don’t want to get too far ahead of myself, but great things are coming. There’ll be another recap email, a full epic blog post, and I’ve got several client projects on the back burner. I’m super excited to get to it all. But for now—it’s time for post #100.
Any writer who’s tried knows the hardest person to write for is yo’self. So today I’m writing about me. 100 lines for my site. Because I’ve learned a ton about which programs and clients I’d like to work with, and it’s helped me find my niche. Today I’m going to free flow 100 lines about me to see what pops out of my head.
This is gonna be interesting, guys. Be prepared for sloppy-ploppy brain droppings.
One note about this one:
PLEASE DO NOT DIRECTLY SWIPE THESE LINES
Use them for inspiration. Tinker and adapt them for your own business. But many of these will be worked into my site moving forward. So no stealing, mmmkay?

Overall: Incomplete. I like a lot of what’s here. There are some good phrases—but I’ve got to tinker with this one. Too early to tell what will stick.
Lessons: So many lines from previous posts! This project opened my eyes to sneaky connections and themes that I’ve loved. Looks like some of the gold ones stuck to my skull.
- This list is showing me what’s inside my guts. Where I should direct myself. What my niche should be. It’s not small business. It’s not tech. It’s not services. It’s fun companies. Or at least, companies who want to sound more fun. I think the who matters more than the what.
- I pulled a few lines from nice notes people have written me over the last 3 months. Thank you, everyone!
- I’m going to save the lessons for another day. I’m too distracted to give a full post right now. All I can see is the end. And it’s right THERE ↓↓↓
- I PROMISE there’s a better recap coming.
Time: 3 sessions, 1:30
Holy shit! I’m DONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I need to go find someone to hug. Where’s my family?
Be back later.
