A New Chapter

For those of you who do read my blog, or the random posts here and their, you haven’t had the chance to see the behind-the-scenes me.  I have been extremely busy, hence the lack of posts. My bad.  But today, I have a special announcement. Some of you, my close friends, will know that I have resigned from BizLaunch after 2.5 years and am moving on to a Com. Mngt/Biz Dev role at Face Wireless (At the time of this post the company had not launched).  My time at BizLaunch was well served. I met some amazing, inspiring, and ambitious entrepreneurs. Like Roxanne Pettipas, CEO of Buddy-Belts, Mike McDerment, President of Freshbooks, Mark Ruddock, Former president of Viigo, Sarah Prevette, founder of Sprouter, and many many more.  I wish you all well! But let me remind you, this is not a good bye, but a see you soon.

Although my new role will involve little interaction with entrepreneurs, I am still deeply attached to the community.  I love the passion, risk, and adventures entrepreneurs take. You are all amazing people.

In my new role I will be taking on new adventures myself, helping grow a potentially large company and meet even more extraordinary people.  I am looking forward to the challenge.

So to those whom I have worked very closely with in the last few years, Good Luck and you will be missed!  On to a new chapter in my life. This one, the biggest step forward in years.

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” — Mark Twain.

Lights in action at Kool Haus – Private Function

Just a little video of the lovely Valerie of Lights.  She is a fantastic performer and has a great personality.  Thank you to ING Direct for putting on this event last night in support of their new iPhone application.

We loved her and her band.  Great stuff!

Distribution of Age within Social Networks

Interesting data.  I didn’t think that Twitter was of more interest to 45-54 year olds over Ning and Delicious.

More interestingly is the dominant age group across all social networks.  58% are between 35 and 44. The next, 21% are under 17 years old.  My demographic is one of the smallest.  I am shocked!

We got Lit at #CanLit

What a night!  Although this was the 3rd annual #CanLit (Canadian Livers in training), it was my second time.  Last years event was quit the night being held at CSI.  This year it was hosted at The Fair Trade Jewellery Company.   Once again I had a blast.  Problem is IM NOT GOING TO SXSW! 😦

Duh. So what was the point of me going if my liver doesn’t need any training?  For the awesome peeps of course.

Feeding the Alligator

What it’s like to feed an alligator.  At least this time it’s not a cute little mouse, but a piece of fresh salmon.  This guy eats better then I do!

Canada wins the Gold – Duh!

With over 80% of the Canadian population watching the men’s hockey finals Sunday afternoon, it’s no wonder Facebook’s status updates went threw the roof when we won.  Ask any American How-to-stick-foot-in-mouth and they can easily show you how. They did beat us in a game of hockey, but it wasn’t for the Gold.

This graph displays the Facebook updates per minute right after Canada won gold. Awesome!

I LOVE shout outs!

I am a high believer in merit.  We should all get rewarded for all the wonderful things we do.  This past year I have most certainly felt that warm, compassionate feeling of a job well done through the many events (GenYTO) and others (TwestivalTO, HoHoTO…) with all the money we raised for charity.  The best part of all this are the friends I made and the support (And mulla) we raised for local charities.

And boy-oh-boy did we get some pretty friggen cool shut-outs!  So cool that tweeps in Ottawa started #GenYOTT, a sister group of #GenYTO.  And, the lovely Casie Stewart mentioned moi in TechVibes as “a really smart girl with a great attitude, not to mention beautiful.” – Casie Stewart.  Umm…Cool!!!

I don’t usually pat myself on the back, or think overly highly of my accomplishments, but I can confidently say that 2009 was a fan-diddly-astic year.  THANKS FOR THE SHOUT OUTS PEEPS!
