I love a transformation. Time and again, we encounter people who are anxious and closed up, holding their best ideas inside. But something happens when they experience our process and environment. They are invited into a new way of engaging and they emerge feeling lighter and optimistic, and with better products. That shift is exciting. Transformation in the context of creative work is also a thrill. When I see terrible PowerPoint slides or a sad poster, I immediately want to start rearranging the story, nuking bullets and simplifying the graphics. My husband knows not to show me his slides after 9pm; I’ll stay up too late making them over.
Making and sharing a podcast is pretty strange, and something I never imagined doing. Unlike co-host John Colaruotolo, I don’t listen to podcasts and I don’t consider myself an audiophile. But it’s so much fun!
Toddler tantrum tolerance. My unflappability is fierce.
