My Story

 

Headshot Body Mar 18

Hi there! I’m Tim Mushey aka “Moosh”.

Welcome to my website!

I’m sure that you are super busy, and it means the world to me that you took the time to stop by.

I am a long-time outside sales representative, who fell in love with writing, training, and online marketing after I lost my job in 2010. I knew that I wanted to help up and coming entrepreneurs some day, but it took a while to figure out that developing social networks and personal brands were my passions.

I became active on LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Google+ and eventually Instagram too. All of the great connections and opportunities that I have had over the years can be traced back to one thing and one thing only –

I put myself out there.

I often refer back to a quote that I have heard on the Ancestry.com TV commercials,

“You don’t have to know what you are looking for, you just have to start looking.”

So that is what I do. Often. Every day if possible. I keep looking, and connecting with awesome people.

At the start of 2015, I was off for three months enduring a second job loss in 5 years, and had a lot of time to contemplate life and my future career path. Thanks to a conversation with my wife, I decided that I wanted to help people get started on (or step up) their social networking and personal branding activities.

Click here for the low-down on my career and background from my LinkedIn profile.

  • I have been featured on podcasts, YouTube interviews, and guest blog posted numerous times
  • I’ve helped entrepreneurs start simple daily social media “rituals” and brand building activities
  • I was flown in to be a guest speaker once in a different city, and facilitated 1 hour presentations three times through my local Toastmasters chapter
  • I’ve inspired many people to start blogging and share their message through consumption of my content on a previous blog and the LinkedIn Pulse writing platform
  • I “co-run” a LinkedIn group of passionate music fans from all over the world

We’ve all had things that have held us back over the years from doing things that we really wanted to do. Mine was battling a stutter since I was a young kid. Click below to see how I faced my speech issues head on!

What You’ll Find Here

  • I work with entrepreneurs who are just starting out, or are struggling to develop a social presence and personal brand online in a consistent, meaningful way. There should not be any pressure to have products and/or services available to sell at this stage. If nobody knows who you are, sales would probably be sluggish at best!
  • If you are a sales rep, or freelancer selling products and/or services for a corporation (real estate agent, financial planner etc.) and want to become an in-demand recognizable name in your industry, I can help too!
  • People often get “paralyzed by information” – they have consumed so much content they literally don’t know where to start anymore. Or they may have minimal knowledge (or none at all), and need a helping hand to “lift-off” their business.
  • I give them the tools to become a memorable, go-to resource in their online niche (or chosen profession) in as little as 15 minutes per day. That brand recognition and “social status” will pave the way for selling more in the future, or to start selling period!

On this website you will find free articles, videos and eventually podcast episodes to hopefully keep you coming back for more!
