I love it when a good person has good things coming to her. In this case it’s a client of ours at Flatlands Avenue Productions.
We asked Detroit area business consultant Romy Gingras, an expert on running and managing social enterprise companies, if she would like to do a podcast. And, her answer was a cautious yes. She was taught how to use a microphone, how to record interviews on her laptop in person, and using online conferencing services, and listen to that dreadful stuff called criticism. Yup, media training by your friend Rita.
So, here’s this lady who knows so much, and teaches others how to make money while running a business that fulfills a need inside their communities and neighborhoods like; putting women’s shelter residents to work; finding jobs for young men and women who don’t want to go to college; training laborers in skills to rebuild Detroit and the rest of the U.S. infrastructure; creating safe work environments and fresh, organic food in urban areas where the super markets have long ago moved out…and she’s a great student too!(I’m tired just reading this graph.) What’s more is that this lady is on fire. Just today she recorded three new interviews for upcoming podcasts. I used to call what she’s feeling a, “radio-buzz.” Now I suppose I should call it “podcasting adrenalin.”
The Bonfires of Social Enterprise is just over a week old and has already been downloaded over 650 times. We’re proud of our great podcasting student, Romy Gingras, of Gingras Global. We’re inspired by her success. We hope you will be too!
