And you really thought #twtupIM is just going to be a buka puasa event? No... no... no... Let's just say motivationMY and inspire.fm are full of surprises!
The motivationMY Show
After Iftar, it was announced that motivationMY is collaborating with inspire.fm to produce the all-new weekly The motivationMY Show. The show made its debut at 7.00pm last night and it's available for your listening pleasure here or iTunes (Search inspire.fm)
The motivationMY Show is an extension of what we've done on Twitter way back in March 2011 with our Question of the Day and also what we've done with this blog. It is to give an opportunity for young Malaysians to share their thoughts, life lessons and wisdom!
The show does not really have a tagline just yet but if we need one, this could be it: Real talk with ordinary Malaysians with extraordinary stories.
Why real talk? Because we really want our guests to be comfortable in the studio. We want them to be as chatty and as honest as possible. We want them to be themselves, without any picture-perfect persona. We also want the show to be informal and as if it's two friends chatting at the mamak (or Starbucks!)
You see... in early 2011 I used my own Twitter account (@syafique) to post the Question of the Day before creating @motivationMY! So while posting the Questions, I notice this "random" girl constantly answering the questions and then she'll blog about it as well.
The funny thing is, I've never met this @sherylhosulynn (her twitter handle) in person until as one thing led to another, she came to bring a guest for the show I was producing back in 2011.
I then offered her a column space on motivationMY.com and she has been giving great ideas not only for her own column but also to fellow editors (Hi Izam!!).
During our meeting for #twtupIM and to reveal to her that motivationMY will have its own show, it took her by surprise to be The motivationMY Show's very first guest!
Why not? I love all her answers from our Question of the Day and her writing pieces are thought-provoking... AND we need someone TALKATIVE on the show! (Right, Sheryl?)
Ok I better stop typing because I REALLY want you to listen to the FIRST EPISODE of The motivationMY Show... it's only a click away --- Click here!
