Creating Content Writing Speaking Presenting and Commercial Real Estate

Has it really been that long?

A quick conversation with a buddy of mine reminded me of how long I have been writing,posting,presenting and speaking about commercial real estate more specifically online commercial real estate.

Decades and Decades 🙂 Ok not really but it seems that way sometimes.

In the past I have been a little reluctant to put myself out there as a speaker presenter and panelist. Why?

Well hell I admit it I’m old school and it’s been tough for me to embrace the openness that the online community has created.

You say “What?” “You are the most blatantly active loud mouthed self promoting CRE person I have ever watched read heard or seen online.”

Hey now chill out a little bit. So, I have an opinion and a …..attitude and I’m not afraid to use it. Someone has to stand on the soapbox and yell…or tweet something…  or post a video…..or write an open letter to the CEO of a company and publish it.

And then it gets interesting.

With all the posts tweets one liners videos panels phone conversations personal connections anonymous emails dm’s f bombs and lists believe it or not people start to create a connection. Most good and sometimes not so much but hey can’t please everyone can we.

Then the phone calls and emails start. “Would you be interested in speaking to our group?”  “I have read your stuff and it is the kind of thing our people want to hear.” “I was just talking to our board and mentioned you and asked them to take a look .” “Are you available?”

First off it is very flattering to have anyone mention that they have read anything that I have written and consider it good content. For them to take the time to connect with me in some way and do that is….beyond humbling.

Cleaning up my act?

In a word…NO!!

But I am starting to make a few changes adjustments tweaks and…stuff.

I have changed (Thanks Sarah or whoever) my profile pic on most of my profiles. Look at the 90 mph hair! That takes talent!

I will be doing some minor changes to the website and getting a cleaner look. Heads up Joe.

More significantly I will be adding a page to let people now what my scheduling availability is for speaking and presentations.

Before the changes are made I am using my About Page.

  • That’s what I’m talking about. It is hard to come up with one more story on how things suck and why or how things are getting better and why.

    There are so many news services out there and they are all so boring. Yes, great information that may or may not be interesting to what anyone is doing day to day in the industry, but when I come to check out Duke Long, I come to hear the irreverent madness that is the Duke.

    I just got back from a summit with Steve Farber and he talks about business and LEAP. Love, Energy, Audacity and Proof and I dare say that you can add another A to that formulat.. Authentic.

    I want to hear from someone like Duke who has a audacious passion for the deal and the industry and is authentic enough to say it like it is. Do you love what you do? Do you put real energy behind it.

    We are all adults and don’t need it to be cleaned up. We just need it to be real.

    Keep on keeping on. Keep on making some of this mundane bullshit interesting.
