Keepin’ Up With Case P — The Week That Was… March 4th – 10th, 2018

“You can’t knock the hustle.”

— Jay-Z, “Can’t Knock the Hustle”, Reasonable Doubt (1996)

The first full week in March’s been all about getting organised.

What 2018’s done for me so far is give me a fiery drive to create—it’s the first time in a very long time I’ve felt like I’ve tangible things I can do to improve my brand instead of continuing to produce just because. I can’t put it out there just yet, but I’m looking back a lot these days as I strengthen my brand’s foundations, really seeing how far this journey’s taken me. It’s one thing when you’re living through each day trying to accomplish as much as possible, but when you lay it all out in one place and give it some perspective, it can be really empowering!

But we’re not here to discuss the things that’re yet to come—with 2018’s tenth week officially in the books, it’s time to review The Week That Was and everything that came with it!

So if we don’t already have regular plans pencilled in, it’s very likely you didn’t see hide nor hair from me this week. Save a couple of podcast tapings and giving and receiving career advice, I spent more time keeping house than I did being out and about. (Apologies to Solmaz and the gang at Best Buy Canada that I couldn’t hit up the Home Show this year, but there’s still a long 2018 ahead of us, amirite?)

But it’s not like I got up to nothing—I still got a few blog posts out:

The Latest on the Blog

But f course, who just blogs anymore, right? This week, I envied my parents’ trip to Jamaica’s Jewel Runaway Bay, declared Whitney Houston’s “I Have Nothing” as the best song of all time, and spent entirely too long—no, seriously too long—discussing television with a bunch of my friends.

Seriously too long.

Now enough about me—though, yes you are literally reading a recap of a week in my life, but hey—in line with my goals for the year, I’m investing time in content for other people’s sites!

Other People’s Platforms (You Down with OPP???)

For the Goat Roti Chronicles’ “First Time Memories And A Cell Phone Giveaway”, I shared about one of the first time our eldest made us burst out laughing, and hey—if you’re in search of a new smartphone in your family, Davindra’s got that hook up!

And I also spent some time chatting with Chris Read of (the original) Canadian Dad, who’s relaunching his podcast after a long hiatus! You can check it out below:

And that’s it—another week in the bag! I’m going back to my hustle, myself, but I hope it offered some insight into everything that goes into making this brand as dope as possible, and with any luck, by this time next week, I’ll be including some updates via podcast in my weekly releases!

May you have an excellent week ahead, and hey—if you’re up to anything interesting, make sure to let me know!

In the meantime, enjoy some Johnny Manuel. Because yes—he’s just that good.

Until the next, I remain,
