If you are a regular reader of my blog, then you know who Cali Lewis is. Not only is she a great friend and co-host of the WealthNation.FM podcast, but she’s also an absolutely amazing person with an unbelievable work ethic! The best part is that I get insider information about all the cool initiatives she has going on, including a HUGE one she announced today!
Cali has been bringing us tech news for many years, but since she’s only one person, and her show is only so long, she can’t cover it all! But with the launch of her new show GeekBeat.TV, she is expanding her influence and sharing the spotlight with a brand new team of amazing bloggers, who she introduced in today’s episode!
The best thing about working your way into the celebrity spotlight is that you can really attract top talent when you put out a call for help. And that is exactly what has happened here. The new team of GeekBeat.TV Bloggers is among the most talented and credentialed you will find anywhere on the Web:
Brodie Beta (Ontario, Canada): Brodie is a technology enthusiast with a passion for gadgets, media and anything related to the Web. She has worked in communications and media for the past nine years. She currently writes a weekly column for the Globe and Mail and contributes to awesome tech sites including GeekBeat.TV.

Oh, and she’ll beat you at a video game of your choice.

As for me, I’m helping here and there to steer things behind the scenes a bit over at GeekBeat.TV, but with all this amazing talent (as you’d guess) I don’t really have to do much at all!
Congrats Cali. Wish you good luck
Chris (Amateur Traveler) says
Thanks for the kind introduction!
Gord McLeod says
Thanks John! I can’t believe how lucky I am to be part of this team.
John P. says
You guys are too kind. Thank you. ;-)
John, it’s an honor and pleasure to be part of such an amazing team. Thank you for your generosity and help to get this project up and running!
Well, for the man running around singing “I’m Awesome” all the time (http://onemansblog.com/awesome), you’ve certainly tapped into your shy side here!
John does more than just “help out here and there” – he’s been instrumental in getting all this up and running (and more that we’ve yet to announce)! He’s been extremely generous in letting me use his years of business experience to push the team forward without making too many mistakes! :)
