“ODD” could stand for a condition needing treatment, like Obstinately Data Distracted syndrome or Overly Delayed Decision paralysis. But we prefer replacing any like those with more positive attributes:
- Obsessively Delivering Delight
- Overachieving Dogged Doer
- Opportunistic Daily Discoverer
- Optimistically Direction Driven
Of course, around here it also stands for Old Dog Digital, which we mean to encompass all those positives and more, helping you “catch” them, too!
Hi, and welcome! Chances are you know, my name is Tom Collins. But if you’re completely new here, DOUBLE welcome!
The short answer to what ODD is really all about:
Putting our decades of experience in business building and pivoting, book publishing, blogging and social media, and a passion for life-long learning on your side.
Now, I’m not much for formal titles – you may know I dubbed myself “Left Rear Paw” during our years building BlogPaws – so I’ve opted for “Lead Dog” in our work at ODD. Left Rear Paw alluded to my largely behind the scenes role in designing and building out the online platforms and conference operations from the idea for BlogPaws through our acquisition, as part of the co-founding team.
Similarly, “Lead Dog” emphasizes my desire to help you move toward your goals, with an understanding that we’ll get you there faster by working as a team – whether that’s in one-on-one coaching with me, working with core ODD team (Yvonne DiVita and Robbi Hess) on a book or other publishing project, or assembling additional experts to support your growth as a speaker, online influencer, or other personal development goals.
