Episode 6 - Denell Florius
This is a story all about how Denell decided to quit harming the planet and instead save it.  Denell Florius is the unlikely hero of this story who after fan boying out over an electric car started dreaming up ways to make renewable energy a thing so he quit his high profile job and the rest as they say is green technology history.  In this episode I talk to Denell Florius half of the genius duo (the other being Zaina Pamphile) behind EcoCarib.com an award winning green tech company out of Saint Lucia.  Show notes are on the website at www.kadiafrancis.com/denell-florius

As far as Ingrid Riley is concerned Jamaican content is more powerful than our Marijuana, but we need to first understand what makes Jamaica special. What defines us, what is our unique selling point (USP), then and only then will we be able to create authentic Jamaican content that can be monetized. It was an incredibly edifying conversation, that went in so many directions with unique insights and perspective from someone who has been a leader in this field for decades.

Episode 4 : The Digital Powerhouse
In this vlogcast episode we talk Sue-Tanya McHorgh one of my favourite Instagrammers and all round digital bad ass. She's a website builder, virtual assistant, blogger and an online boutique owner, she's completely crushing the Internet game. Her journey started when she was laid off from a job where she was overworked and underpaid. Like most entrepreneurs she wanted to focus all that energy into building something for herself. She's had setbacks and failures which led her back to the 9-5, but she learned, regrouped and now is crushing it. There are many lessons to learn from her journey and she was kind of enough to share the ones she's learned with us. You can watch the interview on our YouTube Channel - The Digital Jamaica Vlogcast. We had a wonderful time walking and talking in the gardens of the beautiful Pegasus Jamaica Hotel in the heart of Kingston Jamaica. Let's continue the conversation, how are you crushing the digital space?

Episode 3 - The Pineapple Lady
It's our third episode and I figured it's the perfect time to formally introduce myself to you. Who is Kadia Francis and what's with all the pineapples? Glad you asked ... I am a Digital Brand Development Strategist (a mouth full right? But I promise that's not just word salad) I am also a content creator and a PowerPoint Designer. I became a full-fledged digital entrepreneur when I got fired from my job in April. I realized from early that the 9-5 grind wasn't for me and was always planning an exit strategy but life happens before you're ready sometimes. But while that swift kick up the rear set me on my entrepreneurial journey faster than anticipated I don't regret a thing, in fact, I'm so grateful for that jolt. Funnily enough, I'm now the DBDS for that same company who fired me, to begin with ... Go figure. BTW the pineapples apart from featuring prominently in the Jamaican coat of arms they are also my fave fruit and feature heavily in a project I am working on.
