My name is Connor Meakin and this blog represents medium of self-exploration for me. Expect musings on branding, social media, and personal development.

I am a past member of the Canadian Men’s National Field Hockey team and fresh off graduating from UBC in April 2012.

Through three years of playing field hockey for Canada, I accumulated 45 caps; playing everywhere from Russia to Australia. This blog initially represented a way for me to have some fun documenting the process of using social media to educate and assist my efforts toward a career.


I’ve successfully transitioned from school to a career in a field that had nothing to do with my education. I started working at HootSuite in February 2012 and continue to do so today.

My goal is to inspire, educate, and enlighten others into pursuing any career they want.

I probably drink too much coffee…
