Introduction
Hire me right now -> https://clarity.fm/jeffroach

Culture change excites me, within communities and businesses. From my time as the founder of six startups - successful and unsuccessful - in 4 Canadian cities and in a role for several years that made me privy to the business models and operations of countless technology companies, I have an inventory of options and possibilities to consider that I have learned is uncommon. 

I marry change leadership with social communication strategies to help people understand social business and apply it to growing their businesses and careers. Sociallogical was started in early 2011 to help client companies bake a social posture, as well as methods and tools, into their business operations. I also help them to change their models to take advantage of the significant shifts in our business and consumer cultures and our methods of reaching an audience.

I am the husband to an über-creative entrepreneur who also makes a living helping people online and off. And I'm the dad to two very bright and social kids.

I’m a proud New Brunswicker who loves my home city of Saint John, which I consider to be a startup; incredible potential, constant iteration, collaboration, and growth.

I love to start and grow things. And I love to connect people.

Yemen, the poorest country in the Middle East, came even closer to an all-out-war this week in a particularly complex conflict.

Developer blames Saint John city hall for run-down building http://sologi.co/1FApVUr

This is a big disappointment. However, if you look at the date of the beautiful +ACRE ARCHITECTS designs, they are for 2011. That is 4 years ago before significant efforts were put in place to prevent this sort of thing from happening again. True to form, +Connell Smith is presenting scandal, not opportunity for improvement.

In the article Connell states "City staff could not be reached for comment on Tuesday." How hard did you try, Connell? And considering this story is 4 years old, why did they have only one day (Tuesday) to respond?

Considering how hard City Staff and Councillors like +Greg Norton have worked to improve this situation with their newly announced One Stop Development Shop (http://sologi.co/1EqRWJR) I would be surprised if they would not take this opportunity to expose their new program and invite input from developers like this to continually make improvements.

I understand why the developer has stopped trying in Saint John. I also understand that others are trying very hard to make it better. Except the CBC, the traditional media outlet we pay for that seems determined to undermine honest efforts at every turn. I am disappointed that this development didn't go ahead. I am even more disappointed that our "investigative journalists" are determined to tear down our community.
The owner of a dilapidated Saint John building says he got little help from the city in his attempts to develop new housing on his property site during the mid- to late-2000s.

Uber and the New Control Economy #AShareThing #learnsocial 

"Any business that inverts the supply and delivery mechanism in this way contributes to a growing control economy where power and wealth is shifting to organizations that allow their consumers maximum control over their purchases."

In case you were wondering about the value of EQ and IQ, here are some numbers that illuminate reality.....

If you are a parent, like I'm lucky to be, this is also food for thought when it comes to balancing school grades at the cost of other things....

Really amazing Thai food - New Brunswick's best. There is nothing mediocre here. If you love Thai food you won't be disappointed. When I walk out the door after a great meal here I would prefer to be in the city (uptown), but reviewing the restaurant alone, it's really one of the best in town.

Good food. The ordering process is a pain. Too much choice. I might as well make lunch myself. But the food is good for sure.
