What You Will Learn in This Show –


  • How active collaboration can greatly enhance your end results
  • Does a formal educational stifle your creativity and authenticity?
  • The myth called “overnight success”
  • How social and digital media has resulted in an information-rich, knowledge-poor society



“The idea of an overnight success story did not apply to me in anyway”

“I have never subscribed to the rules. I like coloring outside the lines. I don’t like to be put in any category”

“Your successes are celebrated but your failures are also amplified”

“Do you place too much value on what people on the sidelines are thinking”

“When we are open about our successes and failures equally, it makes people more connected to us”

“If you have not broken anything, you don’t know how to fix it”

“We live in an information-rich, knowledge poor culture”
