The Foush – Mini Update
I know you’ve probably noticed a I’ve been a little lax in my posting, and you’d be right! Thanks to those who emailed, it kicked my butt into gear! Just wanted to let you know that the regular post frequency will resume in a few days! I’ve been really busy wrapping up research for Leonard Brody’s book “Everything I Needed to Know about Business I Learned from a Canadian.”
Man, is it shaping up to be a cool book! We’re doing the last of the interviews right now and I am finding them so interesting, that I’ve been wrapped up in the process and neglecting my blogging a little
I had a really good chat with Craig Kielburger founder of Free the Children about Non-Profits and the necessary changes we need to make in order to live in a more ethical world. He really blew me away with his vision, and I can’t wait to share (in a few weeks) his insights on what businesses can do RIGHT NOW to make the world a better place.
For those of you who are unfamiliar with Craig, he started Free the Children, the largest organization of children helping children when he was 12, after reading a story about a young boy in Pakistan who had been murdered for speaking up against slavery.
We’re also going to talk to Graydon Carter, Editor in Chief of Vanity Fair about the social values around reporting on issues when the media landscape is owned by a few key players. In particular, Graydon’s choice to use his voice as Editor in Chief to speak out against the Bush Administration even when it was unpopular to do so. He has diligently researched and recorded some of the atrocities committed by this government against the environment, women’s rights, and health care. I’m really looking forward to what he has to say.
So I’ll be posting every other day, and then will be back to my daily routine in no time!
I hope you’re enjoying the summer!!
