Hello, my name is Cornelius

Tue Jun 09, 2015 2:30 pm

Dan here. Welcome to my site. I would love to help you achieve success in whatever you're doing. I sometimes go by Janden Hale. I suffer from creativity overload, I'm sure there's a syndrome out there. I like to try my hand at everything, so I often shuffle between numerous projects (I want to write a song! I want to make a wallet! I want to write a book! I want to sell some t-shirts! Hey! I'm writing a book of poetry! and on and on...) and the result is that very few things get completed. That's what this site is about. Figuring out how to navigate the creative environment. Through my blog and these forums here, I will be sharing with you things I've learned along the way. Hopefully you get something out of it. Welcome.

P.S. Here is a list of some various projects I have tried over the years. This is not to brag, but more to demonstrate how scatterbrained I can be. I have learned a lot from this.

  • Novelism/Books/Stories - I have written a few novels (Jester's Down, Locker 6T3, Unleash Your Inner Badass, short stories, novellas, kids stories)
  • T-shirt companies - I tried to do two different t-shirt companies and currently do designs for another one (Guardian Cloth. Co, Gasworks Apparel, War Cry Apparel)
  • Fitness - (Fatal Fitness website, CrossFit Advantage, a fitness game called Ptossing - later became Ptrifting)
  • Board games - I have designed a few games, none of which I released (Disaster Outpost, Improvo, Track Attack, Skwar)
  • Darkana tarot deck - This one is available and was a resounding success; I did everything from the art to the booklet, also did the write-ups for the 3rd party Android App
  • Magazines - I started three magazines, none of which are around anymore (Cyanide, Rotting Clocks, Manarchy)
  • Camouflage - I currently own a company based around my camouflage patterns (HexCam USA)
  • Music - I have been in several bands and written some music (Mental Hazzard, TSVP, Ghost Tribe Fires, myself)
  • Web Games and apps - I created a puzzle/riddle game (Darker Slate) and a few apps, two of which are available on Google Play (Lore Forge Writer Resources, Deception Hound)
  • Darkana Creative - my freelance graphic design business (still do this)
  • Inappropriate Tarot Readings - an old app I created for Facebook, which exploded with success; now is a FB page)
  • Martial Arts - I owned a gym (my first business) when I was 21 called Triple Dragon Martial Arts and Boxing; since I have done MMA and ran several little clubs and have a 3-2-0 professional MMA record
  • Film, acting, etc. - I have been involved in a few film projects; currently working on a photo comic with Gary Stevens called Rogue Squadron, two other short films
  • Web TV - started three shows, Myth & Magic (debunking stuff), Total Danarchy, a live web talk show with Josh Jameson (you can find both on Youtube; TD had over 30 episodes), and Spectrum (a web tv anthology)
  • Podcasting - Tried my hand with my own podcast, Total Danarchy (to continue the TD name), but I didn't stick with it
So yeah. You might be like me - someone who is very creative and who wants to just see what can be created or done. I'm a huge proponent of the maxim that success doesn't come without lots of failure. Secret: the number one contributor to failure is quitting.

The old standby of teaching people to make money in order to make money. If you know the ins and outs of it, who's to say you're not onto something? Best of luck, sir.

I was just thinking about this today, how many different things I've done since 2001 (the quantitative date I use to measure my progress). This means that as of today, I have been trying to succeed for 5031 days. That's 5 thousands days where you wonder if you're doing the right thing. Imagine walking for 5000 days in a row and wondering if you're even going the right way. That's what that is like.

The only failure is quitting. Everything else that seems like failure is just a course correction on the path to the successful thing.

Thank you. I'm glad you caught it!

How often do you update that list? Do you ever forget things?
