Hey there. I’m Greg Hickman. I’m a mobile marketer, entrepreneur, blogger, podcaster, fiance, brother, son, father (to my dog Koda), friend, gymastics newbie and ex-mountain bike racer.
If you’re wondering what you can expect from me on this site you’re in the right place.
I’ve always wanted to have a personal blog where I had the chance to reflect on my own life, share my learnings, inspire and discuss business.
Since I realized I was on the path of entreprneuership in 2009, I’ve been trying to build my own business. It’s always been a “side thing” though.
I was held back for a lot of reasons:
- Fear of failure
- Fear of success (yes, it exists)
- Fear of the uncertainty
- Not having enough incoming revenue in the side project at the time
The list can go on…
Well, in the last 3 months or so I realized what I really want to talk about on GregHickman.me.
I want to share my stories, learnings and experience in:
- Creating the lifestyle I want
- Being productive
- Creating and being in healthy relationships
Yes, these are 4 different areas but for me–they are very much the same. At least, they all have been a key part of my happiness the last few years.
Now, I’m not perfect at any of these. In fact–I have a lot of work to do in all of these areas.
That’s what this site is for.
Over the last two years specifically, I’ve been grateful to be inspired and motivated by some amazing individuals.
Whether it’s been friends, family, my fiancee, my dog, other entrepreneurs, coaches or mentors… I’ve learned a lot and due to that support, I’ve made some great progress in my business and life.
I’ve been lucky to engage with and be supported by many people through the connections I’ve made while building my business and podcast.
I’ve never been more fulfilled than when I get a phone call or email from someone that was just thankful for me being open or sharing my experiences or even teaching them about mobile marketing.
I want to create more of that in my life. It’s what drives me.
This site is going to be my main outlet for sharing with the world.
I invite you to open up… find this as a place where you can be vulnerable–inspired–motivate–and thankful.
Here is what I mean when I say I’ll be talking about entrepreneurship, lifestyle, productivity and healthy relationships.
I’ve been an intra-preneur, wantrepreneur and finally consider myself an entrepreneur.
I’ve had a consulting business, a Software-as-a-service (SAAS) business (sort of) and now an informational marketing and training business.
I’ve experienced a lot of failures along the way and to be honest…only started making real progress within the last year and a half.
When I talk about entrepreneurship, or business here I’ll be referring to lessons learned through my experiences, the steps I’ve taken to build a popular blog and podcast. productivity and life hacks that get me through certain obstacles and marketing learnings that will aim to give you transparency into my world only to help you in yours.
You’ll hear about my businesses:
- Mobile Mixed – a blog and podcast where I discuss mobile marketing strategies, tips and tricks for small to medium sized businesses. I’m writing books and creating training courses for mobile marketers that focus on small businesses.
- Coaching – Guiding entrepreneurs on the path that allowed me to leave my corprate job by building a platform and business of my own.
- Mobility & Co – a mobile marketing accelerator for brands and agencies looking to get results with mobile.
- Speaking – I’m speaking a bunch in 2014 and I’ll share my experiences and learnings as I continue to become a better speaker.
Lifestyle & Productivity
I’ve always worked for someone else–while building my business–up until december of 2013. That means my schedule and interests were built around someone else’s vision.
Are you living someone else’s vision?
Now that I’ve sold my house to help self fund the launch of my business–and life…I’m focused on living life to the fullest.
- That means creating habits in my workout routine which consists of gymnastics and cycling.
- Eating better by cooking at home with my fiancee.
- Reading the books that I want…and actually reading them because I make time for it.
- Writing 500 words a day.
- Working from wherever I want and–with inspiring entrepreneurs
- Giving my unconditional love and energy to everyone I come across
As I aim to do a lot of these things, there will most definitely be challenges and periods where I get down on myself. When I do–I’ll share with you how I’m feeling (because many of these feelings are natural) and how I overcome it so that you can achieve similar results in your own life.
I met my now fiancee, Sarah in 2010. 1 month after we met she moved from Denver to Omaha for medical school. We’ve been together ever since…hence mostly a long distance relationship.
That comes with a lot of challenges and a lot of learnings.
I always strive to be the best boyfriend and now fiancee and soon to be husband that I can be.
A lot of the things I’ve learned can actually be applied to my other relationships in life…with friends and family.
I’m continuing to be a better friend, brother and son just as much as a better fiancee and lover.
It has its ups and downs that’s for sure.
The decision to sell my house and quit my job were very much ways for me to grow and be the friend, brother, son and lover that I want to be and am capable of.
For me, building the life I want and have dreamt of includes these 3 things. I don’t look at my work as a job…at least not anymore.
My business helps create the life that I want and I love what I do. Having freedom and flexibility of owning my own business and being able to work from anywhere, enables me to spend more time with the people I love the most.
Within the next 6 months I’ll have spoken in 6 cities, 2 countries, grow one of the top mobile marketing education companies and recorded my 100th podcast episode.
Within the next 6 months I’ll know if Sarah’s residency will bring me to one of 8 possible cities and possibly a move to one of them.
