Sydney is a horribly conformist city where it seems most far too many of its dullard inhabitants can only muster a conversation about their property assets to each other, day after excruciating day, week after agonising week.
It’s no surprise therefore that it’s often an outsider who storms the battlements with a thousand great ideas, and suddenly there it is, a small company explodes into a universe of shimmering lights.
So it was when the young French-Canadian publishing entrepreneur Jean-Philippe Plourde appeared back in 2000 and launched his magazine, based on Paris-Scope & Quebec-Scope, and gathering up loyal top-line clients like Dymocks and Fox Studios to name a couple.
And so a similar thing has happened with the recent arrival of Kenny the Irish Electrician whose small one-man-band of K.M. Electric gathered steam thanks to his drive to run a strong SEO campaign alongside paying for Google Ads, doing great videos on Facebook and Instagram, and ensuring that he did a great job every time so his 100+ Google Reviews glow like the proverbial bat out of hell.
Kenny proved himself a whizz at ceiling fan installation around the Sydney metro area and made cool little videos to wittily and adeptly illustrate this point.
He lit up the skies with his Irish accent and intense reliability – this is a man who will never be late for a job, and who has a pride in everything he does which leaves your average laconic Aussie electrician in a pile of dust.
And so Kenny, getting top rankings within just a few months for terms like garden lighting installation and outdoor lighting installation, will continue his ascendancy which will ultimately lead to him dominating the Sydney electrical industry.
And people will be left saying “where the hell did he come from?” and the correct answer is “a long way away”, “he’s a foreigner”, “he’s a man who arrived from distant lands to show us how to get on with it and make a legacy for himself and his staff”.
But such a thing will never be enough for a man of Kenny’s calibre. Never one to rest on the green Irish leaves of his laurels, Kenny can also often be found at the holistically spiritual Sunrise Sessions run by his friend Bobby Khanna, where local Sydney Eastern Suburbs yoga teachers, Chi Gung gurus, Lovefest Australia and 5rhythms dancers salute the sun from the heights of Sydney’s spectacular Southern Head.
For true motivation comes from the soul my friends, not just the sparkle in the eyes when counting dollars. His Celtic heritage is only part of Ken’s life journey. He is a multifarious man of of our age, an inspiration to all who meet him.
