Mindy was born and raised in metro Detroit, and holds a deep love for the great state of Michigan. She got her degree in film from Western Michigan University and enjoyed a genuine taste of the entertainment industry when the state incentives for the film industry were put into place. Mindy was one of the only locals working in the production office for the Clint Eastwood film “Gran Torino” which was filmed in Detroit. Listen to her interview to hear why she is a WCSX “Woman Who Rocks”.
Mindy worked in New York for a while, but when she returned the freedom of owning a car again inspired her to produce a documentary called Dream Cruisin’, about an annual event that unites car lovers across the globe. While working on the project, she created Motor City Films with the mission of generating more creative production work in Michigan.
Mindy even got to work with Detroit Tiger legend Kirk Gibson on a parody video.
In the second half of the podcast, I am always joined by Cyndy Schalter-Salsido from Turning Point Macomb. This week we talk cell phone etiquette and why some of us need to put our technology down and pay attention to the real world. Our conversation stems from a woman who took a selfie to a very dangerous level.
Cyndy and I also addressed how social media although a fun thing, has lead to people being dismissed from their jobs because of certain posts. The latest firing involved two Detroit police officers who forgot that snapchat is public.
Cyndy and I switch gears for the final topic on the podcast and talk about tween privacy. At one point do you let your children lock their bedroom doors? Have you had trust conversations with your children?
