FEBU: "Homewood Nation Presents"

Posted by Elwin Green on March 6, 2014 at 1:15 PM

In the quest to enable more empowering and delightful conversations in and about Homewood, Homewood Nation is launching a series of events under the title, "Homewood Nation Presents."

 

Homewood Nation Presents will include both real-life and online events offering conversations with smart people on fascinating topics.

 

The real-life events will take place in a variety of venues. The online events will use Google Plus as a platform for broadcasting live video, with the capability for Q and A during the conversation.

 

Our first online event will be at 8 pm this evening, with guest Shimira Williams, in a conversation titled "Own Your Own." Ms. Williams, founder of Productivity LLC (I cannot BELIEVE she was able to snag such a great, simple name), will discuss the importance of businesses owning their own domain names (such as www.homewoodnation.com), and how to establish your online domain. If you own a business and your online presence consists only of a Facebook page, Ms. Williams will help you to move to a new level.

 

Next week, Homewood Nation Presents will begin a three-part series of conversations, also for business owners, with Craig Calvert, of SmartProcure - conversations designed to help your business grow by competing for and winning some of the $20 billion that government agencies spend EVERY DAY.

 

If the last part of that last sentence didn't take your breath away, you need to re-read it.

 

The series will broadcast live at 8:30 p.m. on March 11, 18 and 25.

 

To keep informed of these and future events, email homewoodnation@gmail.com and ask to be placed on our notification list. Thanks!


And in case you haven't guessed yet, FEBU is a play on a fashion brand, and stands for "For Everybody, By Us." Because in the end, I intend to sell to the world. 

 

We now return you to our regularly scheduled programming...

This is a second test comment with FB login and the "Publish this to Facebook" box checked below. The first time, the comment did not appear on FB.

OK, it appears definite that checking the "Publish this to Facebook" box below while signed in through Facebook, does NOT cause the comment to appear on Facebook. Sigh.

New thought: maybe the fact that I had FB open in a separate tab somehow prevented a comment here from publishing to FB. One more try while NOT signed to FB otherwise.

The Homewood Chronicles

Oct. 2005 - March 2010

Reports from a community in transition

In October 2005, after a bullet came through his living room window, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reporter Elwin Green began writing "My Homewood," the first blog on the P-G's website. For 4 1/2 years, "My Homewood" shared stories of tragedy and beauty, of perplexity and hope - stories that live again in "The Homewood Chronicles."
