Updates – Exciting News on the Foush!!
I know I haven’t posted in a few days, but that’s all about to change.
SES Toronto – I’m live-blogging the Toronto Search Engine Strategy Conference, and will be posting at least two (probably more) sessions on Tuesday and Wednesday. I’m excited to learn a lot more about this field and the panels and speakers look really interesting. I spoke with Lee Odden, Toprank’s CEO a few days ago about his upcoming panel, you can read that interview here.
JetSetforMS – A few friends and I are putting together a great charity event in support of Multiple Sclerosis called Jetset for MS. It’s going to be a fun evening that’s hosted by CTV’s Anna Cyzon. There is going to be live music, fabulous door prizes and so much more! It’s on July 9th, and if you’re in the city of Toronto, I would love to see you all come out.
I got a sweet new Zune to review [Thanks Microsoft], and have been playing around with it for the last few days. I tend to be rough on my gadgets and I really wanted to put it to the test before I gave an opinion on it.
I also have some wacky stuff on the way but I don’t want to say anything until I have the package in my hands, lol. Needless to say, it’s going to be really funny to try some of these things out.
I am incredibly thrilled to announce some exciting new additions to the book I’m working on, the second edition of “Everything I needed to know about business I learned from a Canadian” by Leonard Brody and David Raffa. We have some fabulous new profiles in the second book, including….drum roll please:
Graydon Carter– Editor in Chief of Vanity Fair and on of my list of the five people to meet before I die has agreed to be in the book! Vanity Fair has been one of my all time favorite magazines for the longest time. Graydon is one of the most fascinating people, in my opinion, and I can’t wait for him to chat with us about some of the lessons he’s learned through out his career. I have a very special ritual on the first Sunday after a new edition is published. (Yes, for me it is a holy day indeed.) I always like to go to a small coffee shop, or curl up on my couch with a cup of tea, disconnect everything, and read the entire issue cover to cover.
John Assaraf – Best selling author, and one of the teachers of “The Secret,” will also be sharing some insights on the psychology of success. I have read John’s latest book “The Answer” and so far it’s been really interesting. Very helpful if you’re an entrepreneur.
Craig Kielburger – Founder of Free The Children will talk about what we can do to help those less fortunate than us, and about the latest wave of Social Entrepreneurs. Craig recently launched his O Ambassador program with none other than Ms. Oprah herself!
I have to tell you that helping on this book has been tremendously rewarding and I can’t wait until I can post snippets and details from the interviews to share! In the meantime, if you have any questions for Craig, John or Graydon, leave it it the comments or send me an email.
Finally, started shooting the second Episode of the Foush Reports, so keep watching for that one soon. ( I had to stop filming because I was too giddy about the book news!)
So stay tuned, I’ll be at the conference tomorrow, and then we’re really on a roll!
