Just returned from a great conference called "HOW Interactive and Design Conference" up in SF (Thank you boss for sending us there!). One of the speakers Michael Kruzeniski from twitter spoke about presenting your work and the importance of being able to overcome the fear of speaking because 'your work does not speak for itself.' This is very true and hearing this as a topic at a conference was another reminder that we all have to practice.
Two of my favorite podcasts "StartUp" and "99% Invisible" have raised money in two very different yet familiar ways to reach the same goal of funding their way of storytelling. Each of them provide very different content however their podcast style feels the same. Both reached out to their audience to raise money and both have the same advertisers (eh hem.. heard of mailchimp). Yet their business model is not the same. I wonder if one has ever considered to be in the other's network.
We had a wonderful party celebrating the Cat to Lion kids speaking and telling stories in front of a live audience. Friends and family came and gathered here to show their support which was awesome. I have to be honest, I was more nervous for myself than for the kids. Presenting in front of friends and family was nerve wrecking than presenting in front of my team at work. Nevermind me, the kids knocked it out of the park and with a microphone in hand! They were hilarious, confident, and just fabulous! Round of applause!!
