6. Launch my Company – Getting there

3 01 2010

I have always had this dream, well since I was in grade 11, that I would run my own communications firm. I thought I was going to be this powerhouse business woman in downtown Toronto, or NYC, or LA running the show. Talk about BIG dreams. Although some of this is unrealistic, a large portion of this dream can very well still happen.

Over the course of the past 2 years, I have been paying close attention to the marketing world, picking peoples brains about what they do on the agency side, if they like it, what is happening across the globe, and watching the evolution of social media. It has all been very interesting. I have found that the ‘marketing communications’ world is very saturated with competition. I became discouraged. But why? Why the heck should I care about what other more experienced go-getters have to say about that? If this is a dream that I want, I WILL attain it. It is all about timing.

“Life is all about timing…the unreachable becomes reachable, the unavailable become available, the unattainable, attainable. Have the patience. Wait it out. It’s all about timing.” – Stacey Charter

Yup! Agreed. I was in no position to start a firm when I was 16 years old. What the heck did I know then? How to drive a car? Not even that. Timing is crucial. So when the day comes that all my ducks are in a row, so will come the launch of Renee Warren Communications – A hibernating beast of a firm.

5. Stuff a Turkey

3 11 2009

OK, this may sound weird, but I haven’t even tried to stuff a turkey and I feel as though I need to learn. Just the thought of taking crap and shoving it up a Turkeys arse does not appeal to me. Uck! But my mother insists I learn.


4. Visit BC

Of all the places I have travelled in the world, I still haven’t yet explored my very own country.  On the map is to visit British Columbia.

This blog has some amazing photos. How can I resist?

My friend just launched this book.  It is amazing.  I suggest you all pick up a copy of it.

Why I want to publish a book?  Good question.  I feel as though there is a higher level of respect/prestige in being a published author.

Learn to play, or just take a couple lessons?  I still have to figure that one out. I heard it’s not easy to play. I once tried the guitar and my fingers hurt  after only 5 minutes.
