I Love Magic!

Posted in General.

When I was a kid, I wanted to be a magician. Somehow I ended up getting a Japanese major, starting a web design company, becoming a marketing guy, and writing a non-profit blog. Go figure.

So when I was asked to contribute to the project over at Creating Gen-Y Magic telling stories of how Generation Y can be leaders and visionaries—I was a little stunned. It seemed like a risk.


Greg Rollett, a fellow Brazen Careerist writer, asked me to contribute. As I told him, I really struggled to write this piece. What’s so special about what I do? What lessons can I impart on fellow Gen-Yers? Who really cares?

After stalling and rewriting the piece several times, I finally gave in and sent it. In the end, it’s a story about investing in yourself by taking risks and facing challenges with the hope of seeing a return on your investment. It features one of my favorite tales of how Camp Fire has made a difference.

    Chas, thanks again for your contribution. Telling stories of how we are making a difference can help impact others who want to make a difference, but need a starting point. The story of your camp is truly inspiring and a great measure of the great things Gen-Y has to offer.
