What I'm working on

I founded Work Nicer in 2015 by bringing together 10 friends around the fundamental belief that no one succeeds alone. It's since grown to become Alberta's #1 Coworking Community. Work Nicer empowers members to get out of the house, out of the coffee shop, and accomplish great things with their new found community.

Well, it's not really a business podcast, and it's not quite a social podcast. Honestly, not 100% sure what it is. But it'll be a good time!

Work in Progress is a monthly podcast featuring extraordinary people and their journeys—the good, the bad, and all its unexpected twists and turns.

5CC

Imagine being right there when the Internet was created -- before Google, Amazon, Facebook, or the App Store were even an idea. Crypto will change the world with much the same impact. 5CC is part of how I'm involved in, learning about, and taking advantage of the generational opportunity of Crypto.

Favourite things

You'd think I'd put some books here. But I don't read books. I think I will. I start them, but never finish.

It's probably the ADD.

Anyway. Books aren't the only way to learn things. I also obsess over which tools, apps, and services to interact with on a regular basis. Here are some of my (current) faves: 

Stuff I Actually Read
Fred Wilson
Farnum Street
Mindf*ck Monthly
The Hustle
Morning Brew

Things I Use
FTX
Tesla

Rise Science
Ōura Ring

Socialveil is a visual content calendar built by social media managers for social media managers. Social media is more than just scheduling and posting, it's about multitasking, community management, and efficiency.

A Little Bit More
I grew up on a farm in Taber, Alberta with one younger brother (he now runs a wine tour company in Toronto) and two amazing parents (they now live in Lethbridge). In November 2010 my wife, Danielle, and I got married on a beach in Cabo. My folks taught me that actions have consequences (I chose to learn the hard way anyway), showed me first-hand the hard work involved in running businesses, and introduced me to my favourite quote (from Zig Ziglar):

If you help enough other people get what they want, you will get what you want.

Call it the golden rule, karma, doing the right thing, the long game, or whatever you want but I live to give before I receive.
