What’s your relevance?

Where do you fit in the world? Because you have to fit somewhere. That’s the big question when it comes to finding an audience for things people don’t know they want to know.

To do this, find groups, cliques, spheres, whatever you want to call it, with a broader interest in your subject. Then, find the commonalities (the relevance) between the two by broadening your subject area, link the two, then introduce your area. Simple in theory, hard in practice.

Tim Bunting Kiwi Yamabushi

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Hi, I’m Tim Bunting AKA the Kiwi Yamabushi, a New Zealander who became a Yamabushi Ascetic in the Dewa Sanzan mountains of north Japan. I’m part of the Yamabushido team, and we host life-altering Yamabushi training on the Dewa Sanzan (website link). People come to us for the ultimate mindfulness experience, to reach the next level, or simply connect with nature and themselves.


I’m on a mission to summit all 100 Famous Mountains of Yamagata Prefecture to spread the splendour of this fabulous location, and in dedication to all those who lost their lives out in nature, including my father.


On my daily blog I post thoughts of a practicing Yamabushi that I hope people can use to better themselves and live as fulfilling a life as possible.

Tim.
