About Bill Hood

Welcome to my Patreon page, where those that are familiar with my work have a way in which to get more content from me by moving from a fan and follower to becoming a part of my team.

I am basically a content provider, in that I produce knowledge-based articles, books, podcasts and webinars that help you become more knowledgable and prosper.

That's my "elevator talk" — the very short version — of what I offer to the world in order to make a difference that I exist. In truth, I offer a myriad number of ways to act as a trusted advisor, providing objective and results-oriented analysis, solutions and implementation to others. The total is far beyond the space provided here. And, it varies by the needs of those whom I work with. I do not have, nor want, a cookie-cutter concept of helping others, but rather listen to others needs and find a way to work them on their basis.

I tend to think of those I work with as members of my team, in which we help each other grow. We are responsible to one another for the successful growth of the team, and we work together as a team to be the best that we can be. Being on the team provides a deeper relationship among the members. Once, you become a patron, you become a part of an important, unique and exclusive community.

We will have access to one another to provide solutions to each others needs. You have the ability to work one-on-one with me to get the answers to your most pressing needs. In return, I will learn from you as well, in my research to provide the answers to your unique needs. The great majority of my content is produced by the fact that one of my team members possessed a need that allowed me create a solution. That solution allowed me to produce content for others that had a similar need. Thus, as long as I have a team with needs, I never suffer from writer's block.

Without patrons, we would not have the Michaelqngelo's paintings in the Sistine Chapel, the Statue of David, nor much of the magnificant art we see in the museums. Patrons, or philanthropists as we refer to them today, provided artists with a stipend to live on so that they could work full time at their craft, and in exchange, the artists would bestow rewards of their work on the patrons. Today, patronage is how many museums and symphonies are funded.

Patreon provides a way for you to become a patron of the arts with your own endowment to creatives. Your patronage allows creatives to create!

Your patronage provides a sustainable income that allows me to produce more and better content.

There is more in-depth bio at Who's Who in Screenprinting.

Work
For the past 40 years, I have traveled the world over several times consulting with organizations both large and small, in the screenprinting technologies, as well as in other industries, including manufacturing, retail, distribution centers and others. I am constantly learning as I assist others in research, development, implementation of improved ways of accomplishing their goals.

My late father, asked me when I was a young boy, "What good is it to have learned anything, unless you share it with others?" Thus, I readily share my knowledge with others in my writing. As a result, I publish four magazines, two on screenprinting in both English and Spanish, as well as a lifestyle magazine and another on creative thinking and philosophy, as well as writing feature articles, and research white papers for scholarly publications.

I also produce a podcast at Screenprinters Radio, webinars, and content for my YouTube channel.

Expertise
My primary areas of expertise lie in elevating performance, strategic change management, process optimization, reducing waste and costs, strategic planning, and workflow implementation to provide solution-based direction, while maximizing growth and profitability.

My mission is to act as your trusted advisor, providing objective and results-oriented analysis, solutions and implementation to your needs.

Why I Am Here
Being a creative comes with a tremendous amount of uncertainty. The Internet has brought about a change in the way in which people seek knowledge. Younger people have become accustomed to seeking free advise by watching YouTube videos and asking other novices for direction on social media. Never mind the fact that most of what is available is far from the best practice advice and it requires an enormous amount of time to find the right answers — if at all! This gives rise to my own uncertainty — how to earn a living providing knowledge to a world that sees no value in the right information.

This brings me to Patreon, in hopes of collaborating with those who appreciate fact-based knowledge that can be counted on to follow.

What's In It For You
My goal is to always give more than I receive. I have attempted to offer rewards for your patronage that exceed the cost of each tier. If you have ideas on what might be better suited to your needs, I would love to hear them as I am always open to change.

How far we get will depend on the goals we reach.
Goals
