To be inspired.Β 

As you all know, we attended CommYOUnityYVR’s screen night event at the Settlement building in Gastown on Saturday, June 10th. The power of personal connection is truly amazing because to give and connect with creative people in this world is divine. We want to start off by thanking Kiana Heighton for bringing everyone together and making this night happen. The whole team did a spectacular job with setting the relaxed, yet fun ambience. For those who haven’t been in the Settlement Building, the decorations and natural lighting coming from the windows turned the place from feeling cold to cozy; it’s what made the place look so unique and beautiful. It had the guests feeling cool because of the airy, open mood. This became so evident as the night went on and the space continued to fill up. People continued to vibe off each other’s energy and the night became that much better. We can vouche for that because the moment we walked into the building we both felt the burst of connection; a warm, tingling sensation. To be in a room that allows relationships to be built by countless supporters and entrepreneurs is truly influential. The evening started off with short delightful conversations with old friends, while leading into business like conversations with others.

Spread love and give these humans a follow.||#thebeautyofnetworking

We love to hear each other’s stories and business goals. After all, listening to what others have to say and seeking support is key to learning something new everyday. We listened to Alanah Morin introduce the group of individuals that took part in putting the night together. Alanah is also a member of Community For A Sustainable World  (@communityforasustainableworld)and the Co-founder and Director of Operations.

As the evening carried on we got to know what each entrepreneur is challenged with, what community means to them, and a little about the industry each entrepreneur works in.

So what was our big take away from this night?

Networking is a big part of getting yourself out there, but you don’t always have to focus on that. To be present at a night like this reminded us how much we appreciate and enjoy genuine conversations. Laughing while working is great for your soul – work doesn’t always need to be serious – #laughalot.

Before our business foundation can even begin to support and empower other businesses we must understand where others are coming from. Therefore we like to start every conversation by: asking questions, finding commonalities, and just listening. We’re not perfect, but over time the more events we attend, the better we’ll get at doing these 3 things. So our second take away from this night is recognizing the power of your words and communication. So we are making it our goal to voice wisely and to not expend it wastefully from now on.

Shoutout to COMMYOUNITYYVR once again for a fun and giving evening.

CommYOUnityYVR

“It’s a twin thing”

– gopublikk

In early March we were approached to take part of an inspiring project, CommYOUnityYVR. The last couple of days you have seen us mention this event in our social media channels – we’re super excited and touched to have been asked to take part in such an inspiring project. The screening event for CommYOUnityYVR is tomorrow, June 10. It is aimed to promote local entrepreneurs to share their story and inspire others. We are grateful to have been asked to take part in such an amazing project and vision because we love to share stories and collaborate with locals – we love what we do. Kiana Heighton, director of the show, Co-Founder and Community Event Director of Community for a Sustainable World collaborated with a total of 30 entrepreneurs from different fields. Kiana asked questions (tough ones too), and dug deep to reveal each story and have it presented publicly on screen night to a group of local individuals. A big shoutout to Sandy M for all the editing and her videography skills, and another shout out to Tessa B and Ashley R for coming together and bringing a vision to life.

We are ready to mingle, eat, and have some drinks on Saturday! More importantly, to collaborate, connect, and speak to many entrepreneurs and individuals. We look forward to sharing our story, learning about others obstacles, challenges and success. To inspire and be inspired!


As entrepreneurs, we are thrilled to be a part of this moving project that will be happening this coming Saturday. We shared our story with Kiana and got deep down and personal with her about Gopublikk as a business and how we started laying the groundwork for success. Being part of this screening brings us so much joy – to be a part of a night that can impact not just one person, but several from the community to commit to an unrelenting pursuit of a goal they may have – that itself is rewarding. We love what we do and you’ll find us sharing that in everything that we do.

This Saturday it is going to be an honour to be in a room filled with many individuals that share the same vision; bringing the community together.

Catch us at 397 Alexander St. Vancouver, BC V6A 1C4 πŸ™‚

(Yeah, we put the address there on purpose!)
