My posse. My peeps. My clique. My family. We recently had our annual PrevailPrevail staff appreciation day and it was awesome. A BBQ at Kits beach then an hour long boat ride on False Creek Ferries around the outskirts of the city. It was a great day weather-wise, and our unity as a collective grew even stronger. I made my speech, as has become tradition, and then we opened the floor to commentary from all involved. Internal feedback has become a huge indicator for our team and we encourage each other to be forthright. "Each one teach one" as the saying goes.
I have also been back on the interviewer side of the camera and continuing to build up some more Tête-à-Têtes. I had the pleasure of sitting down with Jonathan Litchfield of Lithcfield's in Gastown, a wonderful shop that stocks curios to inspire the mind and improve one's life. My next chat was with Tyson Villeneuve and Jordan Kallman of the Social Concierge, who, in my opinion, are two of Vancouver's most genius geniuses.
As the site gets primed for its November relaunch, I am going to keep stacking content that will help us navigate the next year of articles. Of course, though, there will be fresh and new content that is not only time sensitive, but is guaranteed to be exciting. I have also been shaking hands and kissing babies and some of it has led to inspiring conversations. Let's just say, I have been meeting with like-minded people and the firepower for the site is building. I will keep you up to speed as things come to fruition, but for now allow me to say this: my friends have always told me I have a face for radio.
Ok my friends, my crew, my unit, my family, I'm signing off for now. Thank you for your readership as we continue to sculpt and mould. It's becoming a living, growing entity and the future is bright. As I write this from our new office space (thank you Mr. D.B.!) I couldn't be more optimistic about the days to come. The energy and focus is starting to line up and our whole camp can feel it; when that happens, oh boy, let the good times roll. Until next month, be well, soak up the rest of Summer's rays and, enjoy each other's company – good vibes are infectious!
