Hey, guys.

Hoping you are all staying safe, healthy and (relatively) sane.

With thousands of new creatives and professionals joining Stage 32 over the last week, traffic, interactions, and network requests at an all-time high, and with all of us stuck at home for the foreseeable future, I thought this would be the perfect time to throw down a content challenge.

For the next 30 days, and hopefully beyond, I’m challenging you to start new posts and contribute to existing posts within the Stage 32 Lounge. Just pick the Lounge topic that best fits your craft and industry pursuits and get involved by:

  • Raising topics for discussion and (healthy) debate
  • Contributing and adding value to existing topics and threads
  • Sharing your knowledge or experiences toward informing, educating and inspiring others in the community
  • Posting articles or other media you’ve found interesting, helpful and which you believe would benefit others in the community
  • Sharing anything else you believe would bring value to the community
  • Hell, you can even share some funny memes in our Anything Goes Lounge to bring us all some much-welcomed levity


April Content Challenge  Lets Lift Each Other Up


For those of you who are introverted and/or feel you have nothing of value to say or share (trust me, you do), this will present a perfect entry into getting involved and engaging with the community. For those of you with major experience within a particular craft or profession, this is an excellent way to pay it forward, share your knowledge, and give back by paying tribute to all those who taught, guided and mentored you along the way.

In fact, I challenge those with vast experience in a particular craft or profession to help drive discussions within those Lounge topics. I’m challenging you to lead the charge.

But this is an opportunity for all of you to get involved. To be visible, put some of your personality on display, and let people know your interests, experience, and goals. It’s a way for all of us to stay connected, feel support, and have the spirit of collaboration flow through us on a daily basis.

And who doesn’t need a little of that right now?

After all, this is a relationship business and what better time than the present to be building those relationships that matter. And I don’t have to tell you, the best and most valuable relationships all begin and flourish through selflessness.

So, let’s share content, start and join discussions, offer help where we can, lift one another up and embrace a community mindset.  

I hope you will accept my challenge. See you in the Stage 32 Lounge
