    As always – grateful to know and write to you.

  2. This is one of my favorite talks on TED; I actually have it saved on my iPhone. It I first listened to it in 2009 when going through some challenges. Today, I still listen to it because it inspires me and reminds me that we have the ability to empower people through telling engaging stories. Through stories, you can influence others.
