This poster by Hilda Grahnat made me smile with its fun typography and message, which translates to: “What do you do?”
As for me, it would take less time to say what I don’t do, I feel like I’m trying to do so many different things right now, and I’m trying to do them all well. Besides running a small advertising and web agency, investing in private companies and running this blog, I’ve somehow got myself into organizing a conference-style event in the fall. It’s funny to think how full my life has gotten – I definitely used to have more free time, but I’m really happy to be doing things I love.
I’m feeling a little sheepish. Because I dropped off of the blogging planet. I’m hoping to come back to daily posting, but perhaps a little explanation would be in order?
My life completely changed in the last six months. I run my own business – an advertising and web agency called Remarquable Communications – which is taking up a large part of my time. But a lovely time it is: it has been going really well. We have offices in the old port of Montreal, with gorgeous light and brick walls. And some adorable, talented employees. And actual, real live clients whom we are proud to work with. All this in about four months.
Aside from that, I’ve been spending some time with my father evaluating and investing in investment projects. Meeting tons of entrepreneurs and successful business people.
Aside from that, I’ve been spending my spare time reading voraciously, keeping up a regular gym routine and trying to keep some semblance of a social life.
All that to say that I’ve not really had time to blog, but I miss it so much. Hence, my attempt at returning!
I really like this photo of an in-progress canvas by artist Jérémie Martino. It really makes me feel like the world is a playground. That you really have the power to define what you want to do with your life and who you want to be. OK, maybe I’m reading a lot into a simple photo. But that’s how I feel about life these days. And it’s really a very cool feeling.
