This is my first blog post. I mean, I guess you could probably tell that by the fact that there are no more blog posts on this page. But then again, maybe you are seeing this somewhere else and its out of context, in which case you would not be able to tell. In any event, this is my first blog post.
Let’s make something clear, I am not a writer. This is more of a challenge to myself, as well as a hope to motivate and inspire others, as I share my story.
With that, I should answer the questions “Who are you? What is this? What am I reading?”
WHO AM I
My name is Alex Krotz, I am an audio engineer, mixer & producer, Pro Tools guru, videographer & photographer. I am a workaholic, and always working on different projects. I am currently in the works of building my own online business where I want to teach people about audio production, the music industry, professionalism, and living a creative life. I am starting a podcast and youtube videos, planning courses, and also (most of the time) make a weekly vlog for my audience to get to know me. I am also working on a few video productions with various clients and other partners, and doing photography to improve my skills, get out and meet people, and to capture this beautiful world of my new home where I recently moved to Vancouver, BC, Canada.
WHAT IS THIS & WHAT AM I READING
As you can tell, there are a few things going on, so where does this blog fit in?
With all of this building of my business, I am so busy learning marketing, productivity, business, work/life balance, and adapting to a new place and life, and basically everything else involved with my projects in my life. As I was walking the other day, I was thinking about how so many people who have personal blogs and just share their lives often inspire me, teach me more behind the scenes of their business workings or their balance of life, or their health, and everything in between.
With all the things I am learning, I decided I might be able to help inspire people who are working through anything even somewhat similar to myself.
With my ANAK Creates brand and channels, things are a bit more curated, more planned out and content building on each other, made to help educate people in a bit more of a niche. The vlog is a bit in the middle, so people can get to know me more, but still a bit more related to the brand as well.
I wanted a place to share the rest of the things I’m learning. I spend HOURS researching and learning about things like tech, business, productivity hacks, workflow automation, health, meditation, different inspiring videos, work/life balance, and everything in between.
I also wanted to make a bit of a personal challenge to myself to work on writing a blog post a day on this channel, which is a little less formal, and more of an glimpse into what I’m looking into that day or researching, or doing. I am also currently planning on writing a couple of e-books as well for ANAK Creates, and to be able to do so, I think I need to work on my writing, so this is a good challenge to help with that very basic function.
The goal here is a few things
- Help myself improve my writing
- Share my experiences in building my latest chapter in life
- Hold me accountable and help build this habit
- Write a post a day, 5 days a week. (We are probably going to work up to that starting at 1 or 2 a day)
- Inspire anyone reading, get helpful suggestions, and create a less official community
I’m not sure how this is going to go, but I want to dedicate time to this each day, like a public journal of my adventures. Less edited, more on the fly and at its basic core helping me improve myself.
If you don’t know me as well, down the line I will be sharing more about who I am, where I came from, what I’m doing, my background and my future with you in future posts. You can also check out my vlogs on youtube, just search “ANAK Creates”
Thank you, and until next time
ALEX (aka ANAK)
