Why I would like to become the Marketing Lead Contributor for ENS
As a young entrepreneur in the early 2000’s, as I was learning internet technologies;
I often dreamt of all the possibilities that internet domains could offer to my specific business ideas, but more importantly to ALL business ideas!!
I fantasized at the possibility of being able to make money with this ‘virtual land’.
I was calling the internet virtual land way before it was even a coined term.
As I think more and more about this & about my career; it has become clear that this type of challenge was always a part of my destiny.
It would be an honor to be an official part of this major paradigm shift, in the way business is conducted through the internet across the globe.
It is through this mission, that ENS touches my heart in a big way.
As I combed through the metaverse these past 14 months; I have found many awesome and many mind blowing advancements.
However, through a more practical and immediate perspective, I have not found any other program that has more capability to change the world other than ENS, in my opinion.
The internet has forever changed the entire world,
and I believe by improving upon that very system; ENS can also change the world forever, and definitely in a bigger way. ( gives me chills writing this )
My collection of ENS names spans a wide variety of use cases to empower people to create things of value for the world, and to do so with as few undue burdens in their way, as possible.
I thought of each and every one that I have registered; I have never bought an ENS off the secondary market… [ provable by the blockchain! ]
Here is a current list of my owned ENS domains…
Most of these we could build out to use as examples of use-cases, while also using them to create revenue streams, simultaneously.
The power of the DAO has inspired my entrepreneurial and humanitarian heart to empower others. We can use this new technology to lift up the collective human spirit, and I would like to aid in this effort, by offering my own spirit’s bandwidth paired with my relevant entrepreneurial experiences.
My Experiences & Skills which make me a Good Fit
I have built 3 start-up companies with the technologies of the 2000’s and the 2010’s.
I know first hand the barriers that small business owners face when trying to take their idea / operation / community to the big time.
I am in a unique position as a 30 year old to have spent 15 years building in the old world, and still have the rest of my business career ahead of me. I want to use this opportunity to help build the new age of business, with the ability to consider all the lessons of last 15 years, not only just by studying it, but also by living it, and struggling within it.
My aim is to dissolve the struggle for accessible resources that all young entrepreneurial spirits across the globe are plagued with.
I have lots of experience with the startup of business operations, as well as experience rallying the troops on new ideas, concepts, and improvements.
I graduated from the University of Dayton in 2013 with a Bachelor’s degree in Entrepreneurship, as well as a Bachelor’s Degree in Marketing Administration.
I received High Honors each and every semester during my 4 years, and kept my GPA above 3.5 while taking advanced business courses that had a focus in Marketing, but also extended to each and every department within a business.
My studies in the classroom paired with my experiences in the street, allowed me to gain a very wide variety of skills that I have applied in the developing digital age.
I have always provided free lance startup consulting and marketing strategies to local businesses, and colleagues.
This led to another round of unique experiences, helping other businesses and entrepreneurs, take their own concepts and massage them into real actionable plans and clear theories.
From my graduation in 2013, I decided to continue building out my own enterprise
( www.mikeshaulingservices.com and www.junkmonkeystore.com )
To say the least … It was quite an interesting experience. Putting together 2 startup companies simultaneously, each with around 6 employees, all with the barriers that inadvertently came with trying to scale with the available tech and the economic situation.
My systematic approach (some called it business engineering) formulating the business operations had proved to have built a strong foundation to have been able to take one of the largest global financial disasters we have come to know…. Through it all I managed both companies and held their ground for 2 long years.
That was upto until this past December of 2021, when I came down with Covid. During this special time alone I had a breakthrough moment, which gave me the courage to close down my companies and take the leap of faith to pursue a meaningful career within Web3.0 …. My obsessive with the journey across the metaverse the past 14 months proved to make this an easy choice
&& here I am…happy as ever.
I believe that ENS will have an integral part of bringing NFT technology to the masses. Through practical and meaningful business applications.
This gives me the strength to be fully dedicated to the ENS mission and to lead us into developing a feasible, strategic, and beneficial marketing plans.
I am unsure of the complete process of officially electing an official Working Group Lead Coordinator, but please take this write up, as my submission for the position of Lead Coordinator of the Marketing Work Group.
Let me know what happens next.
Once confirmed, I will start right away on developing the first iteration of the marketing plan outline, as well as wrangling in some troops, and other contributors to help me make this happen.
The first thing we would need to focus on would be to continue outlining the major benefits that ENS specifically offers to the industry of commerce and any organizations considering to use blockchain tech within their operations.
That being said, I would like to dive deeper upon both berrios.eth’s list & Katykin.eth’s infographic; both of which are wonderful starts to such a significant part of this journey to mass adoption.
Thank you to the ENS community for your consideration on this
& also for being a part of this journey, right alongside me.
I look forward to what comes next.
P.S. If I am given the right to do this…
I would like to be able to change my forum username to my professional name or just ‘Monkey Mike’.
I have no issues with being fully doxed & also shedding the silly pseudonymous name, in order to be taken seriously in my endeavors here.
