This blog hinges on Entrepreneurship. To me, this word stands for freedom, becoming an authoritative voice, and helping other achieve their goals to break away from the status quo and survive happily on their own. Being an entrepreneur doesn’t always mean making lots of money, working endless hours, or getting burned out. It should begin as a hobby-business that’s low-key. Laying one brick at a time, you can build it up, and focus on the content that’s important to you.
What I want to achieve with Desert Rat Executive is to build a community of like-minded individuals who I can bounce ideas off of while I’m facing this journey we call life. I’d like to find other blogs who have similar visions and feature them on here, or at least mention them. I’ve been discovering one community after another based on the enterprising idea of living without a boss, and paving your own destiny.
I’ve been doing this for about seven years. It’s been both tricky, but rewarding. I’ve had many trials during the process. In the summer I’ve worked giving tours around the Southwest, taking foreign tourists to national parks and monuments and across the Navajo Reservation. I’ve spent a lot of time teaching people the Geology, History, Anthropology, and everything about the land. When it comes to teaching people the heritage, it’s hard to separate the land from the stories. All the details weave themselves together where time and place are concerned. If you came with me on this journey, you would see how the land tells the majority of the stories, I just play a become the narrator.
Aside from all this, This blog isn’t to necessarily about making money. It’s more concerned with creating value to a community of like-minded individuals. As an artist, photographer, and writer, this would help me grow and I want to relay these stories and experiences to a close-knit community of friends and the rare traveler who finds something worth keeping!
There’s a lot of people blogging within the niche of entrepreneurship but I’m a traveler, and a dreamer. I’ve also been called the storyteller. My love for the land, the Earth, and it’s history is indispensible and it’s what sets me apart from many suit-and-tie minded city-slickers. Hence, the first part of the title is Desert Rat. We also live in a free-world, and everything is dictated by a free-market system, so I throw Executive into the. I’ve got my own interpretation of “executive” and what it means. Look it up in a dictionary to see how broadly defined this term can become.
The hardest part of starting this from scratch was coming up with a decent title. It took over a week just to think of the best suitable name for my blog. It was the starting point. Now, it’s the beginning. It started like the Big-Bang, with everything pouring out of my imagination. This is a real vision and it’s not going to simply burn out. It has awakened a passion in me that’s been simmering for years!
