Blog it Forward – Jade Vachon

I am Jade Vachon and I work within the M-GTM organization under Solution Management and am incorporating social media in my marketing efforts.  I am taking training fromJason Cao.  My colleague, Benjamin Wilk, BIF’d me and now it is my turn to participate in the Blog It Forward Community Challenge .

For the challenge, here are my answers to Ben’s three questions:

1. Share a fun fact/story about yourself that people don’t know.

My adoption story and pic was taken from the AP and printed in newspapers when I first arrived in a cargo plane (as cargo) in the US from Vietnam.  And yes, that’s my Mom and Dad.  And no, I’m still not famous.

2. What do you enjoy most in your work and why?

Knowing I can help people.  If I know I’ve helped someone and added value, I know I’m doing my job.

3. What was the most fun project you ever participated in and why?


This may not be a ‘project’ but, driving cross country for the first time was great; our first cross country drive was from CA to FL.  We unfortunately broke down before we even made it out of CA but, we eventually arrived in FL 4 days later.  We’ve now driven cross country 4x: 2x West to East and 2x East to West.  We plan on flying next time around.   

I would also take the opportunity to blog it forward to two of my colleagues: Corey Chubon and Dominik Fitterer who I hope will use this as an additional opportunity to get involved with social media.

Look for them on Blog It Forward Chain.

  • Hi Jade,

    What a great #BIF!  Interesting ‘most fun project’ too!  I once tried to go cross country – at age 18.  It was a challenge – there were four of us, and we were camping along the way.  About halfway, things fell apart, and I came home.  But the Badlands were amazing!

    Cheers,
    Sue

  • Such a cute picture of you and what a way to arrive in the US

    Thank you for a great BIF

    I really like the name Jade too.

    Regards,

    Tammy

  • Hi Jade,

    Like Tammy, I really like your name! 😳

    Thanks for your BIF post! I’m discovering another thing in common and a difference between us. We’re both born in Vietnam (check out Trong Minh (Woody) Nguyen‘s Blog It Forward – Woody Nguyen – another member from Vietnam). The difference is long-distance driving – I couldn’t make the 3 hour drive from Vancouver to Seattle without at least 2 rest stops and a strong cup of coffee! (Yes, the rest stops and cup of coffee are related. 😛 )

    Cheers,
    Jason

    • Thanks for sharing your information 🙂 I am very happy to know that there are more friends who born in Vietnam (although both of you have been grown up in different countries: North American where I do want to come at least 1 time 😛 ).

      Regards!

      Woody
