And why should I listen to anything that he has to say?
Allow me to introduce myself, my name is Jamison. I’m a married 20-something year old, motivated MBA candidate, and leadership-focused military professional.
According to this website, Jamison actually means supplanter, or someone who purposefully takes over or takes the place of someone else. It also says that people with this name have a deep inner need for quiet, and a desire to analyze the world they live in and learn the deeper truths.
I don’t have any Game of Thrones level plans to overthrow the government, but the rest of that definition is eerily accurate. I characterize myself as a deeply analytical introvert. It makes more sense for me to sit back, observe, and gather my facts before I make most decisions.
Why the self-titled website? Well, I have been blogging since 2008 and I recently made the decision to create a space where I can speak on some of my professional ideas and musings. Over the years I have done most of my writing on relationships and real-life issues but I would also like to talk about topics that relate to positivity, professionalism, and productivity.
These topics resonate with me because I am currently an MBA candidate at North Carolina State University (Go Pack!) and I believe that these areas of emphasis will allow me to successfully share my ideas on what it takes to be successful in not only business, but in life itself. I have a separate blog, UnsolicitedTruth.com, that I run with my wife where I still write about everything else that goes on in my life.
I wouldn’t say that I am a best-selling author or anything of that nature, but I do have some experience in the area of writing. Articles that I have penned in the past have been heavily shared and featured on sites such as The Huffington Post, Elite Daily, The Good Men Project, Positively Positive, and a few others. That’s not a lame attempt of name-dropping or boasting, I just want you to know what to expect from me going forward.
Lastly, I would be remiss if I didn’t mention why I have such an affinity for positivity. I was raised as a believer of the Christian faith my whole life. One thing that I have learned and have always held on to is that God never gives you more than you can handle and many situations can take on completely different meanings based on your attitude towards them.
My wife always says that I see the best in every situation and I believe that is a powerful characteristic to have as a leader. There is a difference between being a true leader and being in a leadership position.
A true leader is someone who inspires the desire to follow while leadership positions have followers built-in by default.
That’s all for now, but there’s much more to come!
