Earlier today I got to meet and Hangout (Google-wise) with #IdolsSA winner, Vincent Bones. The now 30 year-old was crowned the winner of the tenth season during Sunday night’s live finale. Honestly speaking, he is one of the most genuine, down to earth people I have ever met. Very humble, very appreciative and very friendly. Really, really nice guy. Check out the Hangout below:
After the interview I asked (pleaded with) Vincent to please, please, please realise the magnitude of this, the platform he has been given etc. I asked that he use it to its full potential because so often we see these Idols winners take the title and do nothing with it. I wont mention names, but Khaya, Elvis and Heinz have used it really well 😉 Vincent assured me that he plans to use it wisely and fully, which is great to hear. Can’t wait to see his journey continue and to see what sort of music he has in store for us!
If I mention the name Christopher Gardner, you might be like um, who is that? If I mention the movie The Pursuit of Happyness with Will Smith, that might ring a bell. Well that film is based on his life. His rags to riches story has inspired millions of people the world over. His background might be in the financial industry, but his story is a human story. We all go through things, we all experience highs and lows; money can be (and probably is) tight and jobs are scarce as a result.
Yesterday I had the opportunity to chat to Chris via Google Hangout. He’ll be heading out to South Africa this August for the National Achievers Conference 2014. It’ll be held out at Gallagher Convention Centre on the 30 & 31 August 2014. For more information you can check out www.nacsouthafrica.com, but for now check out the Hangout below:
For me, I have an idea, I just need to put the plan into action. Here’s one of his profound quotes that mirrors the planning statement:
“Do something that you love. Whatever you’re going to do is going to be tough enough. Find something that gets you so excited that the sun can’t come up early enough in the morning because you want to go do your thing.”
Our weekly Big Brother: The Chase Google Hangouts continue. This week I got to chat and hang with ousted housemates, Selly and Natasha. Both ladies are full of life, character and personality. They were fun and great. Check the Hangouts below:
If you are a Big Brother: The Chase fan and you want to pose a question to the evictees, send your question through on Twitter: #DStvReality otherwise hit me up. Coolness!
Big Brother The Chase housemates, Koketso and LK4 were booted out of the reality contest last night. The two housemates appeared to have a blossoming romance in Africa’s most watched house, but now that the Big Brother contest is over, what’s in store for them both? I got to Hangout with them earlier to find out more. Check out this Google Hangout with Koketso:
