I get heaps of people asking me for tips and help in regards to getting more facebook likes to their pages. It’s a strange game that a lot of people are playing (kinda sad the more you think about it).
When you run a facebook page there’s a permanent facebook advertisement prompting the page owner to “Get More Likes”. Yes, paying facebook for likes.
Sometimes you have to go with your gut. We’ve NEVER once paid for likes on Zen Garage and after watching this video I’m bloody glad we haven’t!!!
Not to suggest Facebook is in fact fraudulent, but glad to be avoiding the drama of it all. Those running pages, and looking for more engagement, be sure to watch this vid, it could just save you some money AND prevent the death of your page’s reach.
Zen has a core group of mates, we look out for each other, share laughs and great times. We love each other. We call ourselves ‘the broners’, what better a way than ripping off the ‘brother’ logo (Alain’s idea and I just had to do it lol).

Bit of Photoshop fun! I’m pretty rusty, but it always turns out pretty good when you’re having fun! More on Zen: http://zengarage.com.au/2014/01/alive-but-dead-photoshop-fun
If you enjoy food, you might enjoy a copy of new food media production Scrag End. It’s a journal that’s focussed on divulging the stories beyond the plates by going further than offering photos and recipes.
Hey Zann! Setting up earlier in the day.
5.30PM, it’s beer time.

I have a BA in Design from the University of New South Wales College of Fine Arts, recently the college emailed me with some Q&A and they’ve just launched a site which showcases some individuals who studied there once upon a time.

I would describe my job as an amalgamation of passion related projects. It’s taken me many years to pull it off, but I’ve finally managed to combine all my passions; bikes, cars, design, fashion, music, photography and art into the one project which is Zen Garage. Being the brand manager allows me to curate and promote whatever it is I’m into at the moment, without feeling unnecessary internal or external pressures to promote things that I’m not into right now. This puts me in a constant state of Zen!
I’m inspired by family and my past. I figured that I was the only me in the world, so as long as I took inspiration from myself, my past, then whatever I create would be original and true. I’ve eased up a lot of the years though and I now very happily take inspiration from popular culture, especially many grass roots sub cultures where you find individuals doing what they’re doing because they totally love what they do.
The best part of my job is I’m my own boss and I’m free to push whatever it is my heart is into, seeing others get into the stuff I’m into makes me happy. I’ve got great business partners who motivate, support and inspire me and I’m always meeting new like-minded people through running our Leichhardt store and events.

So Field Trip last Friday was mad. Packed out and everything went super smooth. The After Party at Goodgod was also mad. Mad!
So much love for our volunteers. In this picture we’re about to pack tote bags with goodies.
300+ tote bags on seats!
Up the front; Beautiful Pages had fantastic books on display.

Been a while since I’ve done a proper 1hr student talk. My mate Dan who used to work at Shillington College, and now teaches at St. George TAFE asked me to speak last Wednesday. No matter how many times I speak in public I still get a little nervous the night before, but the class was cozy, intimate even, and I felt super comfortable. I was on fire pretty much lol. Helped that I brought a mate Krysti along and had Jason, one of the car boys in the audience too as he’s a student there.
I got to push Field Trip too, which is filling up fast. Fingers crossed it’ll be a sell out event next Friday!
