I’ve written a great new post… But I don’t want you to read it – At least, not just yet – I’m in the mood to experiment! I’m sure this has been done before but I’m new to the whole blogging/tweeting thing, so bear with me, please.
Inspired by Project Priceless I decided to try my hand at social experimentation. Why? Because I’m weird like that and I’m curious. I’d like to see how far this goes, so I’m going to post another 140 characters for each retweet or new follower until the whole thing is up there. Like it? Want to read more? Come On! RT already! We’ll be using the hashtag #shbx140 so follow along and enjoy the ride!
Want to know a secret? A really, juicy, steamy, secret? I am CRUSHING! Badly; Not-so-guiltily. Don’t get me wrong: I’m a happily domesticated woman! I have a great family, a thriving business… but a girl still dreams.
I’m CRUSHING! Not the school-girl-blush-when-I-see-you-across-the-hall-and-accidently-dump-my-lunch-tray-in-your-lap type of crush. Nope! That would be DH, and I’ve snagged HIM already *blush*. The crush I’m talking about is of the entrepreneurial type. Huh?
There are so many great entrepreneurs out there; CANADIAN entrepreneurs who have achieved great things, big and small. I think of all the moms driving crappy momobiles because they are putting their family first, and need room for groceries. And what about all the men driving sexy cars (why not? The groceries only fit in the momobile, and they don’t do groceries *wink*). All kidding aside, men and women alike reached blindly for the stars. Many failed, some succeeded, and a few absolutely shined!
So who am I crushing on today? I have a list somewhere, but for now I’ll share a few off the top of my head. At the top of my list:
W.Brett Wilson – Not only charming (so I hear), but one doesn’t get appointed to the Order of Canada for doing nothing …And if one does… Can I get in on that? More than just a sexy – flash – website: a self-proclaimed entrepreneurial philanthropist, a cancer survivor, a lover of dogs, and along with success he has achieved the holy grail of business: Balance. Scary word at 3am.
My next victim – uh, crush – is @redneckmommy. Her blog won Best Canadian Blog award in the 2010 and 2008 Bloggies. I’ve recently discovered this incredibly strong woman, and I think its love. She shares the true joys of parenting and marriage… She’s also darn-tootin’ hilarious! A fresh perspective that is never sugar-coated, but sweet enough to have you begging for more! She has thrived through life’s hardships and came out on top. I mean, MY blog doesn’t get featured on CNN! A real hero in my books!
Lastly (well… not last, but it’s certainly getting late and my contacts are drying out!) we have Sharon Vinderine of PTPA Media. PTPA is to baby / kids products what the Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval is to your kitchen appliances! Moms and dads from all over are signing up to test the newest and greatest in baby gear. I like knowing the products I use have been baby-proofed. A mom-preneur, like so many of us. Bonus: she reminds us of the importance of shutting off the BB for a few hours.
I have more secrets, but then it wouldn’t be fair to give it all up on the first date, now would it? Who are you crushing on, and why? We’d love to know
