Becoming Indispensable.

That’s just one of the many lessons Seth Godin teaches when you engage with him through his books and blog posts. Connect, be generous, make art, acknowledge the lizard, ship, fail and learn. A daily subscriber like me receives a fresh post every morning that helps me see the world through a different lens, gives me inspiration and challenges me to reinvent myself.

I’ve been a fan of his work for a while now, which is why as soon as Seth announced the plans for his Road Trip and put out the call for volunteers, I stepped up in a heartbeat. It was the least i could do for the art he’s so generously gifted to the world.

His Chicago stop took place last week at the beautiful Harris Theater. I was the volunteer videographer, and the very talented Rachel Koontz was the photographer. We had the great pleasure of meeting and working with some really talented Linchpin volunteers to pull off what would go down as one of the most memorable experiences of my life.

It’s amazing how powerful being in a roomful of like-minded individuals can be. You could feel that every single one of us there had the desire to do remarkable things, create art, and connect with fellow tribe members. Seth spoke for 2 hours early that morning, and then spent the rest of the day tackling our audience questions with calmness and brilliance.

Thank you, Seth, for all you do. I’m definitely excited for the passion and possibilities that lay ahead! If you missed out, Seth Godin has two more stops on his Road Trip!
