“Words mean things” – The Read

On The Read, one our fav podcasts, hosts Crissle and Kid Fury say the above – a lot, and we love them for it. (They’re our BFFs. In our heads) We humanoids often forget that tidbit of truth. Words wiggle their way into every facet of life. Romance, business, conflict, humour, hell, they’re everywhere. Frankly it can be hard to make sense of them sometimes, never mind use them well.

So, that’s how we arrived at Chronemy. Chronemics is the study of the role of time in communication. It’s one of several subcategories of the study of nonverbal communication. We replaced the “mics” for the “my” because we venture into the verbal, the written, and beyond.  Sounds fancy right? We thought so. But we’re not. We live and work wrapped in the comforting arms of words and communication in all its glory (and forms) and we just want you to snuggle in too, like Netflix and chill….without the connotations, unless you want to.

Mercedes is a communications and PR entrepreneur who also happens to be a mom raising a boy on a steady diet of 90s R&B and hip-hop. One day she will post her archive of self-made YouTube how-to hair videos.

June is a social and digital marketing maven, who actually listened in French class. If you’re good, she may even delight you with some Swedish, son. Her foodie and travel game is not to be trifled with.

P.S. Yes, we did crop our baby brother out of the photo.
