Send a Signal
You can’t escape signals. You are always signalling.
Take clothing, for example.
No matter what clothes you choose to wear, they send a message to others about you.
Even if you go naked, you are signaling.
There’s no escaping.
If you don’t have one, you are sending a message.
So why not take charge of it!
A great place to do that is with a website. When a hiring manager Googles you, you want to send a strong signal.
That’s why we launched Start a Website Week! Get your name on the list to commit.
Then start building.
Chuck Grimmett is one of the best when it comes to showing his work and building a digital footrpint.
Right now he’s building boats, reading, coding, and lots of other stuff.
