Did you know that at any given night over 6000 young Canadians have no place to sleep?
Earlier this year we observed first hand how easily young people can slip into homelessness and how little the Ministry of Children & Families can do to prevent this. We also had the opportunity to witness the wonderful work our local Boys and Girls Club does to fill this gap. I have decided to support this initiative by donating $10 of any consulting hour booked in June to our local Orange Door Project.
In this podcast episode, Hugh Introduces “Get SOS” to us. The SOS team reads your blog posts and creates a series of social media updates to promote your blog. It doesn’t replace the need to be active in your social media efforts (otherwise I wouldn’t post this 🙂 ) but it takes care of a lot of the work involved in the content promotion.
Because Hugh and his team are so involved in the blogging world, he also shares helpful blogging tips in general.
Welcome to Episode 7 of the BlueBird Podcast.
My special Guest today is Vicki McLeod
Vicki and I talk about her recent book #Untrending. It is a small book filled with wisdom. Vicki caused me to think about our obsession of being “always on” and she is challenging the notion that everybody has to hustle more all the time to survive in today’s online world.
“Vicki is a writer, coach consultant, and award-winning entrepreneur. You can find her online at vickimcleod.com and offline in the beautiful Fraser Valley, in pajamas, making something” (From the book cover)
Vicki’s book #Untrending caused me to think about my own FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out). We talk about this as well as the challenge of coaching others to produce an amount of content that is effective without losing their privacy and peacefulness.
I invite you to listen to the podcast and tell me what you think in the comments or by email: [email protected] .
