Some lawyers stay up at night trying to ruin free society and create new rules. Therefore, here are the disclosures I must have that you probably won't read.

Cliente Interview Questions

Commons questions I use to understand my clients, their project, and how I can best tell their story:

*No need to have answers to every question. These are just topics to discuss or consider when assessing a new project, business, website, etc.

You (the client):

  • What is your story? 
    • What is your education and work background? 
    • Where did you grow up? 
    • Where do you live now? 
  • What is your pain point? 
    • What is the hardest thing for you to do? Most irritating? 
  • What made you decide to do this for a living?
  • What is your top priority in life? In business? In this project?
  • Favorites
    • Food, Drinks, TV Show, Movies, Books.
    • Brands/Chains that you are loyal to? Why?
  • Personality Type
  • Job History
    • Career Path, Job Titles, 
    • What you enjoyed/hated/frustrated you about each? 
    • Themes you found as you ran through these?
  • Do you know your Unique Value Proposition (UVP) or Unique Value Added (UVA)?
    • Do you have a personal mission/vision statement
      • I help __(my client base)__ do/achieve/other verve __(primary benefit)_, so that they ___purpose driven outcome__.
      • Example: I help God

Your Business (Non-Profit / Project / Need):

  • Ownership Type: Sole Owner, LLC, Partnership, Corp, Non-Profit? 
  • Franchise? If so, what freedoms do you have and what restrictions?
  • Branding Requirments: Logos, Colors, Fonts, Styles, Phrases.
  • Brand Story: Why You? What do you bring? What is this business about? What's in it for me as your customer? Why not another similar agency/place?
  • Time: How long in the business/industry?
  • What services to you offer? Cost/Fees? Contact Information?
  • Page Flow: Guide your user, calls to action, "Contact Me", Social Links, Email Lists, Freebies, Buy Now?

About and Start Here pages.

For more details, see Patt Flynn's explanation, here.

About Pages are the most visited points on any website. They tell readers a few important things:
  • What is this business/site about?
  • What's in it for me?
  • Why should I trust you (who are you)?
  • What's the offer?
  • What should I do next?
  • How do I contact you?

Start Here pages can be the same as the About Page or a separate page on the site. Here is what a Start Page needs to do:

  • Most important things I need to know to get started.
    • Definitions.
    • Best / Most helpful content.
    • How do I get started/connect?
    • Email sign up, social connections, contact information.
For most people, these could be combined into one page. It's up to the needs of each business/site owner.

Darrell's Reading List


Here are some books I've been reading lately:

  • Saint: A Paradise Novel (here) by Ted Dekker (Author). He's an assassin, or is he? He finds a secret to his past that unlocks supernatural abilities, at a cost.
  • For a full list of all my book suggestions, see my Amazon Store.

Foundations Class #2 Levels of Change

Foundations Class #2Levels of ChangeBob HampClass can be seen on GatewayPeople.ComStarts with two stories...1. True Story. He had driven out to help his aunt who had a flat tire. He used a metric lug wrench on an American car, it wouldn't work so he forced it, stripping out all the lugs. He used the wrong tools to try to fix the problem and trying harder made it worse.

2. Potty Training Parable. You have an infant and shortly after you realize that the child needs his/her diaper changed. So you change it and it gets dirty again, and you change it, and it gets dirty again... Constant change but nothing changes. Then you get a higher order of change. Potty training. Once the child is potty trained you no longer have to change the messes anymore. A higher order of change has over-ridden the former things.
It is this type of change we are referring to with "Levels" of change. Not levels as in: When I pass 1st grade I will be in 2nd grade. It's not linear change, progressiv…

The W Story Structure - 4 Sequence Story Structure

Out of everything I've ever read on story structure for fiction writing, the W-Story Structure makes the most sense to me. If you'd rather view these as Acts (3-Act or 4-Act) you can overlay that on this W and it still works.



Glen C. Strathy writes (in much more detail here) in his article, The W-Plot vs. The Dramatica Model of Story Structure. There are four sequences for most stories. Each of the four legs of the W is comprised of a sequence of events that lead the story along to it's natural conclusion.

Sequence 1: setting up the problem (creating tension)Sequence 2: recovering from the problem (new ideas, positive momentum)Sequence 3: deepening of the problemSequence 4: the resolution of the problem (new light or understanding)

Sequence 1: setting up the problem (creating tension)
The Inciting Event (the event that is at the heart of the reason this story happened) may have occurred before your story begins, and often does. In King Arthur: Legend of the Sword (2017), th…

Introduction In the beginning, the Word already existed. The Word was with God, and the Word was God. (Immerse, 2017) John, page 399 
Notice that John begins his gospel by calling Jesus, The Word. We find Words, and the stories they create for us, impact us at a level that is beyond our cognitive ability to understand in the moment. Being caught up in a story can make you lose all sense of present, and be transported to another time and place (and sometimes another world entirely).

Ever since Aristotle observed that stories had a beginning, a middle, and an end, the science of story has been developed and studied. Our modern sensibilities tell us at a gut level whether a story “works” or i…

Job's History and Family

For the record, I have not written any of this information. I am pasting it here in one place to get back to it easier. I am doing research on Job. The Following Excerpts are the most exhaustive study I've seen of Job so far in my research and I believe this author(s) are on the right track in some of their assumptions.

Please see the links provided to find their full study.

Job's father is Issachar, whose father is Jacob/Israel (Job's grandfather), whose father is Issac (Job's Great Grandfather), whose father is Abraham (Jobs Great Great Grandfather).
Genesis 46:8-18 (King James Version)8 And these are the names of the children of Israel, which came into Egypt,Jacob and his sons:Reuben,Jacob'sfirstborn.9 And the sons of Reuben;Hanoch, and Phallu, and Hezron, and Carmi.10 And the sons of Simeon;Jemuel, and Jamin, and Ohad, and Jachin, and Zohar, and Shaul the son of a Canaanitish woman. 11 And the sons of Levi;Gershon,Kohath, and Merari.12 And th…
