What Do We Actually Do?
A long time ago I worked in conjunction with an office in India. There was a particular individual who would respond to all requests with the following statement; “The needful has been done”. That line always stuck with me and now we use it as a sort of a motto. At OneRedCat, we do what needs to be done. From web development, to social media management to content creation, we do our best so that you can do whatever it is that you do best.
Our mission is to design fun and functional, responsive websites focused on balancing premium content with an enjoyable user experience.
We develop and launch social campaigns focused on engaging content and developing relationships across multiple platforms.
We help brands craft superior content that drives traffic and helps build an authentic, authoritative voice.
We help create a lasting statement for your brand through logo design and branding guides designed to help you maintain brand clarity.
What We Think About Everything
My mom is the manager of a gas station in a small Nova Scotian community. One day she was talking to me about one of her employees. He was polite, and kind and a generally productive worker. But there was one thing that he just couldn’t seem to do.
He couldn’t say, “Have a nice day.”
Recently I was delivering a couple of master classes at the Starting Point Entrepreneurship Conference at Saint Mary’s University. I taught two classes, one on meetings and one on team development and at one point during my second class, one of the participants piped up and said, “you really hate businesses, don’t you?”
I mean…hate is a strong word.
I like hip hop. I’m an overweight middle-aged white dude so I’m basically the target market, at least according to Apple Music. And being that I’m an overweight middle-aged white dude, two of my favorite rappers are Eminem and Macklemore. I get it. I’m a walking cliché.
But there’s a particular Macklemore lyrics that I really love. It’s everything I believe in when it comes to community and workmanship.
“Don’t try to change the world, find something that you love and do it every day.
Do that for the rest of your life and eventually the world will change.”
This is going to start out pretty personal. From time to time, not all the time, but occasionally, I am crippled with anxiety. Now when I say crippled, I don’t mean “sometimes feel great.” I mean that sometimes I’m unable to move, unable to breathe and unable to think. Let me tell you about the time that I sat down in a grocery store thanks to choices.
One of my favourite things about Halifax is all these cool buildings. Take a walk down Agricola Street and you find these really interesting buildings that have been repurposed to house something well outside of their original scope. Really, it’s one of my favourite things in general when I find cities make interesting use of[…]
Over the past year I’ve got the opportunity to meet a lot of really interesting people. Some of them have been people I’ve really enjoyed connecting with and some of the experiences have not been perfectly positive. So I thought I’d talk a little bit about the people I’ve really enjoyed working with and the[…]
The other day I was driving past an apartment building that I used to live in. It wasn’t an overly nice apartment building and it’s not in a fantastic area (I once interviewed about what I thought of the murder that happened on my front lawn) but I actually really liked it there. The units[…]
Most of us have too much shit to do. Right? While there are a lot of advantages to running your own business and being your own boss, always knowing what to do next is not one of them. I remember working for people. It was great. “Here are your tasks. Rinse. Repeat.” But now that[…]
I find it really interesting how projects come and go. I find that I’ll spend several months working SOLELY on websites and then I’ll spend several weeks ONLY working on content, and so on. When the work comes, it just sort of comes. Lately, most of the work I’ve done has been social media management[…]
