Back in January, I wrote a fun little blog post called “The Six Stages of Chris Brogan“:
IGNORANCE > COMPETITION > AWE > FORGETFULNESS > LOVE.
I left the sixth stage undefined.
See, after you go through the first five stages of Chris Brogan, you’ve learned a lot from the marketing genius, you’ve hopefully found your niche, your “microfame” in social media, as Chris might say. You’re happy for you to be you, and for Chris to be Chris.
Thanks, Mr. Brogan, for all you teach us.
