Creative Misfit (CM). That’s what I am. And apparently I’m not alone because people like me are drawn to places like Chattanooga. The question is, what do we do once we get here. That, in part, was the illuminating discussion I had today with Chanté, a fellow CM at the Camp House. As brilliant as CHA is, it can be a difficult place for the most creative of people because, as Chanté points out, ideas are not necessarily valued to the level as tangible products. And therein lies the rub, as the Bard has pointed out through his Danish avatar. The aforementioned Chanté is a web alchemist at Moss Media Labs and a digital marketing guru in her own right at Chanté. Full disclosure though, the Creative Misfit concept was developed by her collaborator Jon at Moss Media Labs and for you in-the-know types, that’s the Jon himself.
As far as Moss Media goes, they don’t just create websites, they stress the equipping of companies to take control of their web properties. They focus on strategic development and provide DIY workshops to help develop savvy internet property management. Chanté provides the marketing muscle and is adept at such things as Facebook marketing campaigns.
And the Creative Misfit dilemma? I explore that in greater detail in the No Bad Idea section. Let me know if you’d like to contribute to that discussion.
What great conversation, about Chattanooga, creativity, mixed with a dash of social media :) Thank you Chris, looking forward to catching up more soon!
