So we provide focused, easy-to-understand guidance on a wide range of business-relevant topics. If you look over at the page scan to the left, that's my piece on making sense of Samsung's new flagship phone, the Galaxy S5.
If you look a little further down, you'll see a piece by Clara Hughes. If you're not familiar with her, she's a Canadian Olympic athlete who has brought home medals from both the summer (cycling) and winter games (speed skating). Perhaps more importantly, she suffered from depression, and instead of keeping it to herself has instead become the central figure in the Bell Let's Talk campaign to eliminate the stigma of mental illness.
Clara just kicked off a 12,000 km bike ride across Canada, and is visiting communities along the way to spread her message and connect with Canadians who have been touched by mental illness. She was in London yesterday, and today I opened up the Bell Business Blog to find her article, Community to Community: Making a Difference, right next to mine. Such coolness.
Hero is a word that's thrown around all too easily in this world, but she absolutely deserves the title.
Your turn: Would love to hear your thoughts...on Clara, on mental illness, and why this matters.
