Dear readers! I have been nominated as one of Canada’s Most Influential Women in Social Media, isn’t that fantastic? What an honor, just to be nominated!

You must have noticed that this last year have brought a lot of changes in here, meaning, i have tried to leave out everything that could associate me with the words ‘Marketing consultant’ , ‘Geek’, or ‘Podcaster’. This was a wish from me to get out of all etiquette i have been given over the last years – etiquettes which i felt always kept me in a blur, not letting people understand what i am really interested in and who i really am.
My passions are already known by most of you – my deepest wish by using technologies has always been to help people communicate and share together, to help them grow personally and creatively wise. I’ve always believed that helping people communicate with each other online is more important than trying to sell them something.
I did and still believe in authenticity, spontaneity and the personal sharing of our thoughts and stories online to make our world and ourselves better people, and this is where technology can be helpful from my point of view and interests. Never have i been interested in marketing any products online, unless i deeply believed in the product fitting into my values of bringing humanity to its best.
All that to say, i am deeply happy to be nominated as one of Canada’s Most Influential Women in Social Media, even after taking a step back and keeping myself a little on the side track of the fast lane, this to keep closer to the person i really am, online and offline.
