One of my favorite TEDs.
Brené Brown studies human connection — our ability to empathize, belong, love. In a poignant, funny talk, she shares a deep insight from her research, one that sent her on a personal quest to know herself as well as to understand humanity. A talk to share.

Story

Looking, looking, looking for that thing no one else quite sees but matters a whole lot.

There's probably going to be some crossover, but I reserve this space mostly for my outside-of-work head and probably a lot of non-work related activities. So unless you're into cycling or cat gifs or commentary on cycling or cat gifs, as opposed to advertising and creative business, eh, well I'd hate to disappoint. 

My "work self" on G+ is here.
