About a year ago, I had an epiphany—all the work I’d been doing across my career, from publishing, to education, to the incubation of independent work at Purpl, was all coming together to form one big idea: we need a new approach to leadership for the gig economy, and we need to be learning it in school. It turned out TED agreed that this was an idea worth sharing, and brought me in as part of the first cohort of TED Residents to incubate and share this idea. The talk that resulted finally went live last week. I hope you’ll take a minute (ok, 6) to have a look and share if you feel that others in your communities would benefit from these insights. Some already have, and have reached out to share their thoughts:
"Your talk motivated me to take the risk, trust in my own story and skills, and be aware of the toolkit I need to thrive on my own. Thank you for giving me the kick in the pants I needed.”
"You are spot on. . . Each point you said . . . occurred along the way with my business. Never thought of it in those terms . . . your insight is very worthy."
"AMAZING! I even took notes. You really opened up my mind.
I invite you all to comment on YouTube or reply to this email if the talk resonated with, inspired or intrigued you. There’s more to come on this topic, and I look forward to the conversation.
