The VeloCITY Pod: Ep. 001 – Building VeloCITY in Community & Business

“Here’s how we’re hoping to differentiate The VeloCITY Pod and be interesting and helpful to YOU, dear listener …”

We know there are loads of different podcasts out there, including a ton of specialized business podcasts, so let’s get down to how we’re hoping to differentiate ourselves and be interesting and helpful to YOU, dear listener:

We’re looking to focus on issues that build and connect communities.  We’re talking about the integration/ intersection of culture, creativity, and entrepreneurship (but businesses of all sizes) that make a community a great place to live and work; the veloCITY in our name refers to the energy created by the convergence of all these things coming together to make up a great city or town.

Look forward to discussions with people who are leaders because they’re thinking differently and bringing new ideas to work at a time when creativity, energy, and execution are what we need most.

So HOW are we going to do all that?  We’re talking with different types of leaders, authors, creators, entrepreneurs, hustlers – everyone who’s innovating, bringing something new or helpful, or interesting to help build community.

This episode is pretty much just an intro to that, but by the time this is live, we’ll also have conversations up with the following:

  • An entrepreneur who quit their job and went out on their own during COVID to stand up a whole new business
  • A CEO who’s bringing a local high-speed network to the neighbourhood with a really neat vision for public wi-fi in the downtown area.
  • A data security expert talks about how a lot of us smaller operators and one-person shops can think about protecting ourselves from cyber security threats.
  • A mediator and expert at inter-personal conflict who shares what she refers to as “the joys of conflict.”

We’re talking with people who are leaders because they’re thinking differently and bringing new ideas to work at a time when creativity and energy and execution are what we need most.

So thanks for checking out The VeloCITY Pod; please be sure to check out the other episodes we have that are already live by the time you’re hearing this, but know that we will be publishing a new episode about every 2 weeks (or more, but we’re shooting for 2 weeks for now) so be sure to subscribe on whatever your preferred platform is.  We’re on Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Spotify, Pandora but please also hit us up if you’d like to see this podcast delivered on any other platforms or even if you have a great idea for a future guest.
