From the category of "too weird to be true", a colleague of our founder/my business partner at Kinetix (Shannon Russo) was traveling the globe and found himself in a conference room in Hyderabad in India.
He glanced at the walls while he was waiting and saw our company name, Kinetix. Wow, he thought, I travel halfway across the world and I get a ping from Kinetix in this conference room.
How did that happen? Some human capital company/job board in India included me in a calendar that they did, complete with my image, title/company and a custom piece of text ripped from my LinkedIn profile. I've never heard of the company and no, I didn't authorize this use of my image, but I'm less than bothered. Seems like a compliment.
See image of the calendar below (email subscribers click through for the photo of the calendar).
Do you feel inspired?
First time in my life I've been called Mr. July. I'll take it.
