Potlucks and people
I grew up in an evangelical church in southwest Missouri and whether you believe in a higher power or not, there is a TON we can learn from the power of the potluck. Tent revivals came along every summer and there is a good reason why. Shared experience is powerful and shared purpose is holy. Seth Godin would say the power is in creating for the “people like me who do things like this.” And there is.

A Travel Experience that Flipped My World Upside Down
Here is today’s question for February 10th given to me by my speaking coach Gahmya:  “What was one life changing event or travel experience that flipped your world upside down?” “I saw things differently when…” I went on a road trip to New Orleans when I was 9-years-old. But it was actually an experience that happened after I came back that helped me recognize the power of travel.  #Day3 #likeTED
