What do I do? Funny you should ask…

Posted In: ChiRunning | Me | Running | SchoolBOX divider 2 Comments »

I get that question a lot whenever I meet someone new. I’m sure you get it too. It must be that people love to label folks rather quickly.

I usually say I do a lot of things. At the root of it all, I think I’m a business person. I know this has a bad mental model for most folks, as they see us hiring slaves and counting our money every night. Not quite…

To the bulk of the people on here, they see me as one of the 13 certified ChiRunning instructors in Canada. A lot of people associate my name with the technique since I give a lot of workshops, talks and the tally of people I’ve taught is getting close to 300.

The bulk of my days is spent as an Intersol consultant. I do a lot of stakeholder engagement work, some social media work, and I still dabble in communications. I’ve also been getting involved in some crowdsourcing, where we are very close to announcing a partnership with a global firm. Exciting times!

I also do a lot of work for the non-profit SchoolBOX, helping them with a big campaign and event for 2012. Trust me, you will hear about this a lot more in the coming months.

To some people, I’m a Lululemon Ambassador. Although my term is quickly coming to an end, I’ve done a lot of work with them over the past year.

To some, I’m a triathlete or a runner. Or someone who does yoga. A former football player. Guilty on all charges!

To some people I’m Gisele Collard’s son. My Mom is a local legend, having qualified for World Championships. I’ll take that!

Maybe I should start by answering what I don’t do?

Sorry for the lack of posts these days. It’s been busy days. And it was my b-day. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it!

  1. my best friend once asked me to define myself WITHOUT using any of my ‘roles’..hard task lemme tell ya….we are all so much more than what we do..but what we do does paint a good picture of who we are…:)

    That would be a tough one. Maybe “a nice guy” for me?
