Tweet your face off Goodlife Inc

We brought in Fergie Cancade (@goodlife_inc) for this week’s #TYFO session. Fergie runs a marketing agency which represents several freeski athletes, including TJ Schiller and Justin Dorey, so he was able to hit on a lot of industry topics. Turns out that his insight doesn’t stop there though! Here at Alli, we like to do our part to ease the decades of tense relations between America and Canada, so when we found out that Fergie was a pure-blood Canadian, we got him to discuss some of Canada’s finer things, including poutine, hockey, “Trailer Park Boys,” and of course, mullets. Tweet your face off, eh?
