Small But Mighty: My Experience at 2017’s BConnected Conference!

I am small but mighty. You wouldn’t know it to look at me on the surface, but I went to 2017’s BConnected Conference feeling kinda down about my brand. I was doing better than ever, yes, but I didn’t feel like I was growing anymore. I had a wealth […]

The Life and Times of Casey Palmer: An Elegy for Mediocrity

Y’all ain’t interested in writing anything great. The name of the game is mediocrity. Mediocre blogs that don’t share anything worth reading; people who skip birthdays for mediocre events; mediocre personalities, expectations and lives. No one’s striving for anything amazing anymore. And it boggles my mind—everything’s literally within reach, but when people find out how […]

DO ALL THE THINGS: Monthly Wrap-Up — Do As You May

Y’all too scared. 2014’s seen me grow a lot, finally realizing what it’s like to have a voice, believing in it enough to stop compromising and start telling the world how I really feel. I’m not producing as aggressively as I used to, but now I’m giving each […]

THE GREAT SOCIAL MEDIA STORY: Blogging Ain’t Everything!

Like a Jay-Z retirement, I wasn’t stepping away from the social media game, but my relationship with it was definitely changing. When I met someone at Friday’s TacoTweetup who asked how many tweetups I’d been to, his eyes bugged out when I answered “I dunno — 100? 150?” For […]

“What good is it for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul?’ — Mark 8:36, The Holy Bible, New International Version Remember when social media in Toronto was fun? I remember my first encounter with Twitter back in 2008 when I hit a marketing event with Sarah, […]

Paying Dues — Stand for Something or Fall for Anything

“Everybody wanna be a star, don’t wanna be who they are.” — Beanie Sigel, “Everybody Wanna Be A Star”, The Truth (2000) You can get sucked into the game faster than you can blink. Build an audience and people will start knocking at your door. Brands, would-be collaborators, haters — […]
