Ex Emirates flight attendant, Social Strategist & The Secret To Happiness | Dan Wilkinson (Hot & Delicious: Rocks The Planet!) | Episode #122.

Posted on Updated on

 

DOWNLOAD the PODCAST – #122 Dan Wilkinson SOLOCAST #3 (Social Media Strategist + Content Producer). 

 
Solocast! Who am I? 
 
I have lived in 5 different countries and 10 different cities. I have blonde hair, a ginger beard, have lived a life and careers of so many lifetimes… all focused on the pursuit of loving life and The Secret to Happiness… although I didn’t always necessarily recognise it at the time.
 
After dropping out of university and a Swinburne University BASc Biochemistry degree through lack of passion and zero desire to be stuck in a laboratory in 10-15 years time, I have served drinks and cleaned ashtrays back of house at Melbourne’s Crown Casino, spent 6.5 years jet-setting the globe with the rock star’s lifestyle without being the rock star as an Emirates Airline flight attendant, set a life up for myself as music industry professional, driving operations & logistics for music festivals/events around Australia such as Splendour In The Grass, event production and festival photography for triple j, created a music supervisor role for Ballistyx Snowboard Show on Channel GO! managed rock & roll bands and much, much more.
 
My life now, is so surreal. My main crust at this stage of 2017 is as a social media strategist and content producer. I work in an industry that didn’t exist 15 years ago guiding national and global brands on their social media strategy in the digital sphere, including the likes of Cadbury Dairy Milk Chocolate, Peroni Italian Beer, Philadelphia Cream Cheese, Kraft Peanut Butter, Bulmers Original Cider, Miller Genuine Draft, Cancer Council Australia, Salesforce (through Mahlab Content Agency) and many more.
 
And all of this from a guy with no degree who dropped out of university not once… but twice! The 1st was the BASc and the 2nd a Masters of Entrepreneurship & Innovation, which I left as I was spread too thin and didn’t wish to wait 4 years to start chasing new opportunities… I’m still not convinced that you can teach entrepreneurship, but that’s another story 😉
 
Not only am I now back working for myself making the same ca$h money in 2.5 days/week that I was making in 5 days/week only a ago, but I am also lecturing at Macleay College in Sydney, have brand and lifestyle that I have created for myself called Hot & Delicious: Rocks The Planet!, I am being paid for social media influencer work through the reach of my social media channels, I have a weekly show on Bondi Beach Radio called Hot & Delicious: Rocks The Planet! that is has also been a podcast on iTunes for 2.5 years now too and I have SO much planned for 2017.
 
Now… absolutely NONE of this is designed as a boast. All of this shit is real. I did this myself through a shit-ton of hard work, mistakes, early mornings and the borne of the desire to love what I do and be happy. And I’m sharing this piece not as a “Yay, me”, but because I believe that we should be living and pursuing what we love for a living and I believe that it is a life that you can have too!
 
In this week’s show AKA Hot & Delicious: Rocks The Planet! solocast, I share everything that you’ve ever wanted to know about scoring that dream job that you’ve always wanted (or the one that you simply never knew existed). 
 
I share with you The Secret to Happiness, because it’s just so simple… and I tell you what… I never knew just how close it was and at 40 I am truly the happiest that I’ve ever been… Yep, I found it! 
 
Want it? Let’s get into it!

Ever wanted to Choose Your Own Adventure?
 
I don’t mean like in the books that you used to explore as a kid, I mean in life!
 
To turn the page and venture down a path without knowing what lies ahead, just because you think that it might get you to a place that you never even dreamed of.
 
Well, then welcome to my life… and the life of record producer & Bondi Beach Breakfast host on Bondi Beach Radio, Boston Rodriguez.
 
Life is to be enjoyed and from an early age, this fast-talking, energetic North London lad has built a life and career out of exploration.
 
Whether it be writing/presenting nationwide radio music documentaries whilst living in New Zealand, opening up the eyes and world of Kingston’s youth whilst working as an art auctioneer in Jamaica or his London  journey from star music student to record producer, the life of Boston Rodriguez is one of Choose Your Own Adventure and it is truly my pleasure to bring that adventure to you!

Krafty Kuts + Chali 2NA (Jurassic 5) launch brand new track ‘It Ain’t My Fault” in Bondi Beach!

119 Krafty Kuts + Chali 2NA from Jurassic 5 live in Bondi

DOWNLOAD the PODCAST – #119 Krafty Kuts + Chali 2NA from Jurassic 5 live in Bondi. 

3pm on Friday, my friend AJ from Central Station Records drops me a line…
 
“We have Krafty Kuts & Chali 2na (Jurassic 5) launching their brand new single ‘It Ain’t My Fault’ at the Beach Road Hotel in Bondi this Wednesday 1st of March…” can we hook up an interview on Bondi Beach Radio?
 
Yes, yes and yes… 
 
So AJ sends me through a couple of pressers (press releases) and a copy of the brand new single “It Ain’t My Fault” and then come Monday morning, I find myself in the boardroom at Central Station Records in Sydney for a 2:1 chat with Kraft Kuts and Chali 2na. Awesome!
 
Our vast ranging chats cover Krafty Kuts’ earliest ever memory from his childhood of the family cat in Kingston upon Thames in the UK and Chali’s memories of his 2nd birthday in the projects of south-side Chicago, the pleasures of working with Dynamite MC and Chali 2na to bring this jam to life, our shared experiences of the inspiration of hip hop street art in Miami, Rome, Montpellier, Belgium and their 2 pieces of advice that Krafty Kuts and Chali 2na give to someone who has a dream, but is afraid to take that first step.
 
As Krafty tells it, studying your art and creating magic is all about practicing your art form to hone yourself into the best at what you do and I felt that myself even during this interview, as while I usually capture what I need in hour long shows that I’ve been recording for 2.5 years, we made this shit work in 25 minutes. 
 
I’ll be heading down to their show Beach Road Bondi as part of the global ‘Hands High’ Tour tonight (Wednesday night 1st of March) for sure!
 
Stoked to be able to launch “It Ain’t My Fault” by Krafty Kuts & Dynamite MC featuring Chali 2na of Jurassic 5 on my show on Bondi Beach Radio and you can download the interview right here, right now on iTunes.
 
These two gentleman are consummate professionals, super enigmatic and downright lovely… And maaaaaaannnn… this jam is GOLD!

Exciting Bondi Beach Radio show for Hot & Delicious: Rocks The Planet! this week as we catch-up with Bec Scott, co-founder & CEO of STREAT, a social enterprise set-up to stop youth homelessness.
 
With what started as an idea on the streets of Vietnam, STREAT has rapidly evolved from their very 1st food cart in Melbourne’s iconic tourist destination Federation Square in 2010 to multiple STREAT cafes/venues around Melbourne, a Friends of STREAT cookbook and designer coffee all available for purchase online with funds going back to training and providing jobs for our homeless youth.
 
It’s wonderful to be able to share the STREAT story with my Hot & Delicious: Rocks The Planet and Bondi Beach Radio audience! 
 
To experience the outlook of a human like Bec Scott who’s not only making a selfless, positive impact on the world around her, but a self-sustaining and ever-growing one.
 
I only hope this show can inspire you to do the same! Let’s get into it!

Westfield Bondi Junction Mardi Gras street art. A masterclass in experiential brand activation!

Posted on Updated on

Westfield Bondi Junction Mardi Gras street art. A masterclass in experiential brand activation!

Love this!

 
Westfield Bondi Junction have created an absolute masterclass in experiential brand activation to celebrate Sydney’s iconic Mardi Gras. Simple, stylish and elegant, this beautiful street art creation taps into the perfect storm of global pop culture, human behaviour, a hallmark event on Sydney’s yearly calendar, is situated in one of Australia’s highest foot traffic locations and blends the physical and virtual worlds to a T.
 
And the best part? They own advertising/media space and the artwork wouldn’t have cost much at all (in the scheme of things).
The only cherry I would have placed on top is a #MardiGras hashtag in the artwork so that when people upload their content to Instagram or Twitter it drives exponentially increased visibility through digital search, but when everything else has been executed so beautifully, all I really have to say is…
 
Well played, Westfield Bondi Junction, well played 👏👏👏
