What is Shaggy Duck? I don’t know!! What do I want it to be? I want this to be a blog/vlog/podcast that helps motivate and inspire creative, go-getter, sneaker wearing individuals to find their purpose in life. I want to help you exploit your uniqueness, find your difference and create your voice.
I want to lead you to “Adventures in a Wonder-Filled Life.” Why? Because that’s where your happiness lies. In my fifties I discovered that happiness is not about money or success. Happiness is about freedom! Waking up every morning doing what you choose to do, when you choose to do it, is a life altering discovery.
We’re the folks that might be a little shaggy, love comfy sneakers, are always looking for adventure and have that sparkle in our eye. We’re independent wonderers and hustlers that have traded high salaries, secure retirement accounts and corporate cubicles for the freedom to work when and where we want!
Shaggy Ducks are their own media companies and their own personal brands! Join the revolution of entrepreneurs that are creating influential blogs, podcasts, video channels, digital products and social media accounts. Stop making excuses as to why you can’t start living a life doing what you love!
Everyone is a guru or has more passion than most people in something. With the evolution of the Internet and social media, you can become the expert in that niche! Want to know the coolest part? Only a very small percentage of people will take the steps to make that freedom come true. The individuals that start, work hard, stay consistent and have patience will win in the end.
Shaggy Duck is a personal/lifestyle blog and podcast bringing you everything I’ve learned and done since hopping onto the Internet in 1999. I’m Curtis D. Tucker, a kid from the 70’s that has had a very fun and interesting life full of little adventures, triumphs, failures and freedom. My journey has taken many major pivots and I’ve gone from the 8-5 grind to having the time of my life.
I’ll bring you life tips, hacks, lists, links, tutorials and insights into many categories: branding, entrepreneurship, marketing, blogging, podcasting, photo & video, motivation, gizmos, social media and adventure. The best part is that I’m still learning and growing just like you! I’ve got multiple businesses in the works and I’ve been paying the bills with my online ventures since 2002.
I’ll share with you everything I’ve learned including the failures and the successes. I’ve been a cartoonist, web designer, graphic artist, greeting card creator, blogger, podcaster, speaker, SEO guy, photographer and more. My adventures since going online include interviewing Garth Brooks, flying with the Thunderbirds, covering a Presidential inauguration in Washington DC, being in movies with Jake Gyllenhaal, Paul Dano and Bo Derek, and chasing the total eclipse of the sun.
I want to help you get off the couch, get out of your rut, make it over the hump and stretch you to do things beyond your ordinary. Every blog post, podcast and video is intended to entertain, inspire, motivate, teach or transform you. I want you to be a Shaggy Duck!
I’m Curtis D. Tucker, “Shaggs” a.k.a. That Buzz Guy, an Oklahoma-based entrepreneur. At 55 years-old I decided to relaunch Shaggy Duck to share my knowledge with you and to create a fun, lifestyle brand for those looking to increase their freedom, expand their personal brands and become a guru in their passion.
I bought my first domain name (curtoons.com) in 1999 and built my own website with absolutely zero knowledge of the Internet. ShaggyDuck.com came along in 2000 originally as a media and design studio.
Today I have become the expert or “digital mayor” of Enid, Oklahoma. My blog, www.EnidBuzz.com, has become a brand and a media company supplying news and information to a community of 50,000 residents. I write articles, photograph events, interview fascinating people and supply fresh information to my hometown.
I’m not a millionaire, don’t sell courses, don’t have an annual conference, I’m not part of a secret mastermind and I’m not very well known beyond the boundaries of Oklahoma. I’m just a working guy that likes to wear shorts with sneakers and happens to use the Internet every single day to make a living.
Please follow me on my latest adventures and hopefully I’ll soon be hearing about yours! Get ready for ideas on digital media, social media, personal branding, guerilla marketing, blogging and podcasting, plus small business tips and daily motivations. I’m so glad you are here!
