What Your Name Is Worth

What do you do when what your client thinks is fantastic doesn’t meet your personal standards? o_O

If you work in The Arts, such as being a video editor linkedin.com/in/BillCammack, or a music mixer, your professional reputation is going to depend not only on your efficiency, but also on the content & quality of the final product, and how much your client enjoyed working with you.

It’s different from being, say, an accountant, where you can either count or you can’t, and you either count QUICKLY or you don’t. πŸ˜€

Since you’re always working for someone else (video production company, record producer), you don’t have final say over the finished quality because someone else is paying you to make THEIR VISION come to life.

So what do you do when what your client thinks is FANTASTIC doesn’t meet your personal standards? o_O Continue reading “What Your Name Is Worth”

What You Call It vs. What It Is

I got to spend some time with some CLOSE friends the other night. It was a very grounding experience for me. I’d like to talk about something very simple.

Calling something a particular thing doesn’t make that thing what you called it.

Not calling something anything doesn’t make it less than what it actually is. Continue reading “What You Call It vs. What It Is”

Branding: Name, Nickname or Company?

Everything you do in public adds to or subtracts from your cred, and is compiled in your virtual resume. Which resume are you building, and what do you hope to get out of that?

Bill Cammack - Channeling What Women Want!
Bill Cammack – Channeling What Women Want

When I got started, three years ago, in 2006, My idea was to make a site that started out as my making my own videos but would expand to a group of people collaborating to make videos for the site. This is why I was initially branding ReelSolid.TV instead of BillCammack.com.

Pretty much immediately, I started getting recognition for my videos, except *I* wasn’t getting recognition for my videos. People knew that ReelSolid.TV was producing them, but nobody knew who ReelSolid.TV was.

Once I understood that, I had a choice. I was either going to continue publicizing the group (which was only me anyway), or I was going to start publicizing MYSELF. I chose to publicize myself because the group is merely an umbrella.. a catch-all. Let’s say that ReelSolid.TV is defense and BillCammack.com is offense. ReelSolid is more saying “I’m not necessarily the one that created this, though it’s my site”. BillCammack is saying “I did this. Add it to my resume”.

Did your man call out another woman’s name?

Ladies… Don’t you just hate it when your man calls out another woman’s name when y’all are doin’ the do? Well, before you start throwing tantrums and throwing keys and cell phones out of Lamborghini windows, let’s think about why this might be ALL. YOUR. FAULT! πŸ˜€

Did you dye your hair?

WomenYour man gets used to certain things about you. He’s used to your body type, because that’s what prompted him to talk to you in the first place. He’s used to your demeanor, how you like to dress, etc.

Now, if you recently dyed your hair, depending on what you were doing to him at the time………. Your man could have made a PERFECTLY HONEST MISTAKE in calling you some other woman’s name. πŸ˜€

I’m just sayin’… Guys aren’t that smart. You have to keep things consistent. If you were already dying your hair red when he met you, keep doing that throughout the relationship in order to avoid situations like this.

Same thing goes with length. If your hair was long the whole time, don’t suddenly cut it short and risk reminding him of that secretary at his job he fantasizes about tapping every chance he gets.

FELLAZ!!!.. The easy way around this is to only date one chick of each hair color/length. If one of them changes up on you, hold off on the sex until you can draw up a new chart. Writing all of their names/hair colors on the inside of your wrist is risky, but, you know… do what you gotta do. Continue reading “Did your man call out another woman’s name?”
