Saturday Music Memories – A “Canadian Reinvention”

Dallas Smith is the lead singer for one of my favourite Canadian bands of the last decade – Default. I have had the pleasure of meeting  him on at least three occasions, because a good friend of mine worked for the band throughout the years.

Last year, Dallas decided to change it up, and release a country/rock cd. Well he did not miss a beat as he stepped in to a new genre of music! His latest single, “Jumped Right In”, just hit #4 on the Canadian Country charts.

An incredible accomplishment to say the least!

Here is the link to his website as well:

Bruce Zimmerman is someone that I have enjoyed corresponding with on Twitter and LinkedIn for quite some time now. He is professional, outgoing and brings an incredible depth of knowledge to his blog. I had the good fortune of speaking to Bruce for the first time a few weeks ago, and I really enjoyed it! I look forward to future interactions with my new blogging and social media friend. Check out this insightful post on Keys To Success.

Some of the most valuable lessons I have learned in life I have learned through sports. Competing from an early age, I was fortunate to learn the value of hard work, persistence, and determination.  Growing up one of my favorite athletes was Pete Rose. He wasn’t the most talented player in the major leagues, but what he lacked in talent he made up for with effort and his willingness to make something happen. He gave everything he had every time he played. His persistence and determination earned him the nickname “Charlie Hustle”.

 

So what if anything can be learned from “Charlie Hustle”? (other than don’t bet on baseball)
