Hi. I’m Tom Brownsword. I’m a writer and people helper. Among others things, depending on the day of the week. Or hour of the day. I’m also a cyber intelligence analyst (I have to put that here because it makes up most of my income. Plus I love to do it because it helps people).
You’ve found my personal web site. While I normally write with you, the reader, in mind, this site allows me to write about “me”. So I warn you in advance; it’s boring. I recommend that you read my books (once I get the written and published; yeah, I’m that kind of writer at the moment, the kind that hasn’t published a book!) instead of this blog (which is for me); they are much more interesting and I tend to ramble less.
Oh, sorry; you can get to the actual blog by clicking here.
It’s easy to find some random web site that has information that will help you and think, “Wow, this person has it made!”. A few minutes on my personal site should dispel that myth. And I’m representative of the market as a whole.
There are two ways you can approach any challenge:
- You can be the strongest person in the world that never has the problem being dealt with and help people from a position of strength. These people are extremely rare.
- For the rest of us, you struggle with an issue and find a solution, then share that solution with the rest of the world and help them overcome. You fight through the obstacles and make it through to the other side with more strength and wisdom than when you started. This is called “life”. It’s great. I highly recommend it (and it definitely beats the alternative).
I’m in the second group, and to prove it, I write this blog. If you want somebody from the first group to help you, I understand, but when you have trouble finding them (or if you think you’ve found them, only to discover they don’t know what they are talking about), I hope you’ll come back here.
Here’s a hint: People in the first group don’t exist. If you think they do, they’re fooling you.
I have a few pages that will tell you a bit more about me, but for the most part, I invite you to read some blog posts and check things out so that you’ll get to know me a bit better. I hope you go away convinced that I can help you get to where you want to be. Or run away screaming because what you see scares you. Either way is fine with me.
