Ok. No. Not really. Not really at all actually. My pen name is Jay White and one night in 2006, I was putting together a sales presentation. When done (around 2AM) I opened a beer and started playing with Blogger, the free blog platform that this site was built on on.
To this day, I’m not sure where the name Dumb Little Man came from. Maybe I’ll get analyzed one day by a team of psychiatrists to find out. What I do know is that I have always been into productivity, exceeding goals, automation, and, well, finding a simpler way for everything.
In this blog’s infancy, I would share sites and resources that I found helpful, etc. As my sales career expanded and my writing time diminished, I had a tough choice: either close DLM or accept that you, the audience has something substantial to share.
I quickly decided that sharing info trumped the ego boost of being the sole writer on DLM. There simply is no master of everything so there is no value in claiming to be one. Therefore, I opened the door and now allow great writers and experts to share stories or publish tips and advice. To me, this has been phenomenal windfall of ideas and concepts that I would have never thought of. To date, over 17 million people have stopped by Dumb Little Man and I’d like to think that most learned something.
I am proud to announce that in June 2013, our humble little blog joined the Caputo Media network. By becoming a member of this network, we are now able to enjoy additional resources that were beyond our reach in the past. But not to worry, I continue to run the Dumb Little Man day to day operations in the same fashion as I always have, and don’t intend on stopping and time soon.
So, with that, I will thank you for stopping by. I hope that you learned something during your visit and if so, let me know by actively participating in the comment section.
