Cover, gigs, and guilt
Entrepreneurship for the Cool Kids is in the last round of edits. Peep the cover:
I want to put it out April 20th. I'll keep you posted on that.
I had a presenting gig at the Metro Center Library last week. Dude, it was incredible.
I made a presentation out of the book and sprinkled writing assignments throughout.
By the end of the presentation, each person in the class had a filled-out worksheet on how to find their passion, how to change their thoughts, emotions, and behavior, and what their highest value is.
Only 3 people showed up but their reaction was great! They were really engaged and the writing tasks seemed to have an impact on them. It was one of the best feelings I've ever had. The library emailed me today and asked if I'd write up a proposal to turn it into a series. Uh, totally!
I feel it's a problem to just share this without also sharing some of the countless problems, obstacles, and setbacks I've faced. I feel guilty sharing it unless it accompanies what it took to bring it to this point.
Should I? The truth is, I don't know how to handle the bubbling success of this as a person. I wrote Entrepreneurship for the Cool Kids wanting it to benefit other people. That's fine. But I'm a person.
I don't know how to bring this up on a date, tell my peers what I'm up to, or how my personal life will change as this continues.
But I've accepted that being vulnerable is okay.
