As the spotlight bears down on you and the murmur of the crowd fades into quiet anticipation, you take the stage armed with the confidence that your speech is…good enough? Hell no! Your speech isn’t good enough, it’s GREAT!
You’ve agonized over every word, you’ve choreographed every step you’re going to take, you’ve planned it meticulously. You’ve gone over it, and over it again making sure every inflection and every pause is exactly where it needs to be, because you know that your livelihood and your reputation are at stake.
Shouldn’t your website and branding live up to that same level of craftsmanship?
Shouldn’t the world get a sense of how awesome a speaker you are by sensing the effort that went into every font, every color choice, every pixel? I say yes and that’s why I build the kind of websites that I do.
Here’s the thing about “good enough,” it’s code for mediocre.
My greatest regret in life is that I’ve settled for mediocrity more times than I care to admit. Too often I’ve cruised along at 75% of Derek capacity when I knew that I could do better. I’ve done it in school, in my personal relationships and in my hobbies. Every time I settled, I let myself and others down.
I’ve worked hard to overcome this by constantly reminding myself to push past the “good enough” barrier. Maybe it sounds melodramatic, but I’m out to be the best person that I can be and one of the ways I do that is by being the best humble servant for speakers, coaches, and consultants that I know how to be. I’m getting better at it every day.
What would happen to your business if your brand and your website kept getting better and better?
What kind of doors would open for you? What kind of stages would you grace? I KNOW that it’s possible to create a website that puts you on more stages and gets you paid more for doing what you love.
There’s roughly a billion websites on the World Wide Web. I’m responsible for about 200 of them. My goal is to do work that matters and make every website count by making sure it has maximum impact for my clients. I can’t design websites that are good enough and I can’t work with anyone who wants a website simply to place a link on their business card. I need to work with people who push for greatness and settle only for awesomeness. We can do it together.
