Parenting the Internet | Managing the Gray

Parenting | Managing the Gray

CC Chapman

My parenting philosophy is pretty straight forward. Be an honest person and treat other people as you want to be treated.

That is how I live my life and how I want my children too.

But, I also believe that you should stand behind whatever you say.

In today’s world where anyone can hide behind their keyboard and screen, it feels to me that the Internet is making too many people soft.

If they get challenged in the littlest ways they back down, run away or try to pretend that it never happened.

THAT is what is discussed on this episode of Managing the Gray. A bit of a rant, laced with encouragement to not be soft and to stand up for what you believe in.

Thanks for listening.

Managing the Gray 119 – Grounded

Managing the Gray 119 – Grounded

CC Chapman

Last week, a travel writer was kicked off a United Airlines flight for taking a photo of his seat. Beyond the dumb decision this was by the flight crew, it got me thinking about how there are still so many people who haven’t realized we live in an always on society.

Each of us is now a publisher. We have the power to create any media we want and publish it to the world in our pockets at all times and we all need to be more aware of this.

Combine this story with renewed buzz around Google Glass and the evolving face of journalism with sites like Bold Edition, Quartz and Narratively gaining traction and no one can not pay attention to this shift.

Listen to the podcast to hear my thoughts on this world we now live in, that far too many brands and organizations have not yet embraced.

Amazing Detroit | Managing the Gray

In which host CC Chapman kicks off the book tour for Amazing Things Will Happen in Detroit, Michigan.

I was in Detroit kicking off the book tour for Amazing Things Will Happen and found myself inspired to share some thoughts on the city.

This is a city that I’m quickly falling in love with the energy and vibe of.

While it may be kicked and down at the moment, there are so many people determined to pick it back up and make it better than ever. Plus, there is a strong sense of social good and helping the community on top of making a profit that you don’t hear about often enough other places.

The audio quality on this is going to be not as good as usual. I’m testing out a new iPhone app called bossjock studio which allows me to record full podcasts while on the road. Next time I’ll plug in an external microphone to make it sound even better.

Managing the Gray | The Importance of Friends

The Importance of Friends | Managing the Gray

CC Chapman

Friendships are some of the most important things in the world to me.

This past week I had a few friends over to the house and it reminded me how important it is to have friends that will be honest, constructive and challenging all at the same time.

After reading the latest from AJ Leon, I was inspired to record this.

If you have never heard the friends vs. Friends podcast from 2007 I referenced, give it a listen.

Thank you to all my friends out there. You make my world a better place.

Managing the Gray, EP 115 – Travel Makes The World Smaller and You a More Rounded Person

Managing the Gray, EP 115 – Travel Makes The World Smaller and You a More Rounded Person

CC Chapman

I love to travel.

I love writing, taking photographs and shooting videos when I travel so that I can share my experiences with the world.

Today on Managing the Gray, I want to talk about how important I believe that travel is to making you a well rounded person.

I don’t think you have to travel the world or go broke seeing far off destinations, but the more people, religions, foods and towns you experience, the better of a person you will become.
