My TEDx Talk is this Thursday!

This is the week! My TEDx Talk is this Thursday!!! My topic is:
Is Your Stuff Stopping You?
     Award-winning author, illustrator, teacher and student Elizabeth Dulemba recently sold or gave away nearly everything she owned. And yet, she’s no minimalist. She’ll walk you through how she did it, and share how you too can open yourself to opportunities by evaluating your stuff – debunking the illusion of value we place on material possessions. Why do this? To answer the question "Is your stuff stopping you?"
     Am I nervous? A little, must admit. The auditorium holds 700 guests on two levels. That will be the largest audience I've ever addressed, but I've been practicing and I think I'm ready! Click the above image to learn more about the event. And please...
Wish me luck!!!
     They record these talks, so if it goes well, I'll be sharing the link soon!


When I was in highschool I was on the drama and debate team. It must have been an accident but I made it to state (in TX). The audience was not quite that large but I was a lot less experienced than you. Someone told me to visualise all of them sloppy drunk with straws up their noses. Not sure it worked but I made it to semi-finals anyway. They (your audience) want you to secede. They are not your enemy. I love and believe in you and I know you'll be brilliant. You'll smile and breath every so often just to let yourself know you've made it to the world stage. No stopping you now.

e: I've been thinking about you... being inspired by your "casting off," but gaining so much in that process... You'll be brilliant. Just imagine that audience as all your author/illustrator friends wanting to know how you did this HUGE thing. I'm inspired. xo
