Happy Sunday, Creative Army. 

Fired up this week to bring you another edition of Coffee & Content. Let's get right after it.

Every week, without exception, I receive a few dozen direct messages here on Stage 32 as well as on my Twitter & Instagram accounts from creatives looking for social media advice. Many of the curious identify themselves as introverts.  Also, without exception, I receive dozens of DM's from creatives who have no relationship with me (and many times, not even following me) demanding that I look at their media, videos, screenplays, reels, etc, and often extolling their greatness in the process.  

Whether you're an introvert or a egotist, you do have a place on social media. All you need is some guidance on how to turn it up or tune it down. And learning how to do so will put one of the most powerful tools one can utilize toward building relationships that matter (including right here on Stage 32) at your disposal. 

Today, I have two articles I published on Medium to help see you through. (Remember to follow me on Medium to get all my film related content.) I promise you, if you utilize these tips and strategies, you will see results. And there's nothing more rewarding (and fun) than putting in the time and reaping the rewards.

Also for you this week, I have the Hollywood Reporter's Director Roundtable video featuring Bradley Cooper, Spike Lee, Marielle Heller, Alfonso Cuaron, Ryan Coogler, and Yorgos Lanthimos. This is one fun and enlightening conversation.

So sit back, grab your favorite cup o' Joe, and savor the content. But please, do remember to pay it forward and share where you deem worthy. Helping others is good for the soul.

As always, I welcome your thoughts and musings in the comments section below!
