It's Gotta Be [Anything But] The Shoes!
By Nick Engvall • Issue #1 • View online
First of all, thank you all for subscribing to the Outside The Box newsletter. I haven’t been as consistent with it as I wanted to be because life has taken me in different directions over the past few months and that’s actually what I wanted to write about today.
Sneakers have been the primary focus of “me” on the Internet for the past 20+ years. In that time, I’ve had a lot of ups and downs, but most importantly I’ve learned a lot through both my own experiences and through the relationships I have with many of you who are subscribed to this newsletter. While I’ve enjoyed the journey immensely, I often feel pigeon-holed into “who I am” online. It’s a weird feeling for me, considering that oftentimes I earn a living by offering people ideas and strategies that get them beyond the status quo, and inspire change that can better their businesses. I guess in a sense, this next step is me providing that service for my own life to move beyond my own status quo.
With that in mind, I’m starting something new that will be a lot less about sneakers and more about the things I’ve learned, the things I think about, the ways I think the world could be improved, and probably some crazy business ideas along the way.
Think of it as a half-journal, half-brain dump, with a healthy dose of stick-it-to-the-man-neosis intended to challenge standards in ways of thinking and ways of doing business, and ways of living.
I’ll be taking on broader topics and stepping beyond sneakers and I figured in doing so, I’d use one of my favorite words that I feel is used far too seldomly, and call this newsletter: anomalous.
Anomalous - Thoughts, Ideas, and Other Things
I’ll still be publishing Outside The Box, in fact, I’ll be looking for writers to share their thoughts through the platform soon so if you’re interested in contributing, let me know.
If you’re only interested in my perspectives on sneakers, feel free to unsubscribe from this newsletter and I’ll have a new edition of Outside The Box this week.
If you’re with me with or without sneakers, stay tuned. I’m going to present a new way of thinking about how social media could work in the next couple of days.
