Hi, my name is Dean Hunt, and I have a disease that almost nobody knows about…
I call it the “creative fever” or “ideaitis” and it’s taking a hold of me and gripping me by it’s juicy fingers.
It is likely at this point you will think to yourself:
“Dean, you crazy cat, what on earth are you talking about?”
And thus you may want to click away and stop reading… but I urge you to continue on, as you may be the person to help cure me (seriously).
So here is the thing…
I love coming up with ideas… creativity and ideas are my fuel, they are what keep me awake at night, they are what get my juices flowing…
I am gripped by this obsession, anything that doesn’t involve big ideas, clever hooks, unique angles, crazy concepts etc is a distraction and disappointment to me.
So on my recent 30th birthday, I did what most people do when they have a milestone birthday.. I ate too much cake… then I pondered my past, present and future, and decided that I needed a change… I need to feed my creative greed, plunder my idea hunger (this rhymes, pretty impressive huh?).
Here is where I NEED your help:
I am a big believer in the 6 degrees of separation, and so I want to publicly share my problems, questions and dreams… who knows, maybe one of you lovely, sexy readers has an uncle who has an accountant who has a client who can help cure me?
Here is my ideal future: Working as part of a creative team, brainstorming, coming up with ideas, angles, copy, hooks etc.
Pretty simple… right?
Well unfortunately I have no idea what this role, business, or even job actually is…
Some people tell me I should work my magic at an advertising agency… “copywriter”, “creative director” “creative consultant/strategist” they cry… “sounds awesome” I reply… but truth be told, even though I KNOW I could be one of the most creative people in any of these industries… I have no contacts in these fields…
So if you know of what I should do to be able to think of ideas and be creative day in day out, please let me know via the comments, or, via email at: firstname.lastname@example.org
If you know someone that I should speak to, please also let me know or pass on my details.
If you have any ideas, opportunities, suggestions, warnings etc… I would welcome those also.
This could be the first day of the rest of my life, can you help me start it with a bang?
- Do you know where and how I should apply my creative craft?
- Hone my idea sword?
- And tweak my out-the-box brain box?
If you don’t you probably know someone who will, so any shares, tweets, emails etc are VERY much welcome.
I love you, I love your face, I love your soul.
A very passionate Dean.

PPS: During my 7 years in the world of sales and marketing on the interwebs, I have build up a strong skillset in sales, presenting, speaking, content creation, consulting and networking… so if I can build these around a core of creativity, then the world will be my tasty little oyster.
