A few words about me
Well, I don’t have too much free time these days, but I thought that since some of you might check out this blog I’d better give you some info about myself.
First of all, I’m not a psycho. I mean, I’m not a psycho in a “psycho” way; I studied psychology a few years ago and I’ve got two diplomas, even though I don’t practice it. If you are asking why did I bother to study psychology when I wasn’t planning to use it, the answer is simple: it’s not a well paid job in my country, and when you’ve got a wife and children (ok, I’ve only got a child, but she keeps me busy :) you’ve got to be the provider.
The “dude” part in my name was just an association that I thought sounded funny; in fact, I had a few persons on Twitter say that they love the name, while others were scared to death; I guess that the “psycho” part was too much for them.
So I’m a former psychologist that never got to open his consulting job, pretending to listen to other people’s problems and helping them find the proper solutions to them. Man, that would have been easy - and if the pay would have been great… what a life! This didn’t work, so I’m an online consultant these days, teaching people how to promote their businesses online through various channels.
Now don’t get me wrong, I didn’t spend 5 years of my life for nothing; by studying psychology I have started to understand life differently and I’ve used some of the information I’ve got to help myself and others in various situations. Still, the greatest return on my time / money investment in psychology was the fact that the people here are impressed by psychologists, and when they hear that you’ve got your diplomas will think of you as being some sort of a king, but maybe one without a crown. And without a throne. And country. And…
There you go. I have told you my life story. What’s yours?
