Via a post early today from CC Chapman and his communication from holiday founder Gary Vaynerchuk (who likes the vino) April 3rd is now Good People Day. Your mail will still be delivered and banks are open.
The concept is simple: use the power of the internet and the strength of social media to let “people write and talk (and) blog and twitter and just flat out SING about people that are AWESOME and GOOD.”
Crap, this another one of those simple ideas that I always miss and say “I wish I thought of that!”
I know a ton of awesome people but my especially my wife and children and basically anyone in my family. That’s a given. CC and Gary came up with the idea and/or communicated it to me so they are now also good people.
The problem with a list like this is names will be omitted who should be highlighted. Know that if your not on this list but you are reading this blog I think YOU ARE GOOD PEOPLE.
I’d have to write a book on each person to do justice to how great they are….I won’t cause I know my posts are too long anyway. Know that there’s a great story behind each name and probably a great story associated with you too.
So just off the top of my head (links where available)
Peg Keane -best person in the world and everyone who knows her knows that
Msgr. Francis Braun
Fr. Norbert Burns
Fr. David LiPuma
Michele Krollman (well, all her family too)
Everyone at Greenwood Group
Everyone at Rare Earth
Everyone involved in Podcamp Toronto
My clients (really not sucking upâ€¦I’m lucky to have only nice clients)
Thanks just being around and for being who you are. I’m grateful I have you in my life.
Now please, post your list today. Do it, twitter it, podcast it. Today’s Good People Day. It’s an internet reminder to say thanks and that you’re important. Then just try and remember to do this everyday.
