I'm sure my opinions on #events  and #conferences  are going to probably make some people mad.  But I've yet to see a conference scale and not lose its essence.
Over the last 5 years I’ve attended and been a speaker at about a dozen conferences. They have ranged in size from 40 at…

That is very true and I have found that the same thing happens to some online communities when they scale up.

Today I want to share an instigator with you who is working on something that has been near and dear to my heart through the entire journey of  Unmistakable Creative.   When I graduated from business school, I realized that I had been prepared for a future that didn’t exist. But what scared me even more was the hundreds of thousand of students coming right behind me that were also being prepared for a future that didn’t exist. I’ve always felt some sort of obligation to change this and help people avoid my mistakes. 

It’s why I’ve always wanted at least a few educators in the room at the Instigator Experience. They can prepare us for a future that does exist. People like my friends John Nitolo and Kathleen Jasper are challenging the status quo and doing exactly that. 

+Victor Saad  is brilliantly translating information into an educational experience that could fundamentally redefine how we learn and he’s our 4th instigator for 2015.

In any community, there are people who show up day after day, month after month, year after year. They tell the world about your art, your work, your project. Those communities are led by people who truly “get it.” It wouldn’t be the same without them. They look for people who ignite their souls and they return the favor.

+Jadah Sellner  is one of them and today I’m thrilled to share her with you as our 3rd Instigator for 2015.
