Hi there, Frocktalkers! It’s finally here – for those of you who did not get to make it to Pacific Palisades to see the big TEDx talk, here it is in its entirety. Hope you enjoy it! Big thanks to everyone who helped me with this: Susanica, Carrie, Ruth, Anthony, Sam, Eladio, Mel, Ken, Michael, Michele, Michelle, Lauren, Stacy, Rebecca, Joseph, Beth, Carlos, Lois, Aasha, Darren, and all of my Chico Junior High girlfriends! Thanks to Andrew McGregor for inviting me to speak – it was nerve-wracking, but it was fun! Have a great weekend, everyone!
Hey everyone! This Saturday (6/29/2013) is the big TEDx talk. I’ve been practicing my speech and honing my slideshow, and I think it’s going to be fun! I’m not going to cry, and I’m not going to barf! I’m not going to cry and I’m not going to barf! If I keep repeating this phrase, I will be just fine. If you’d like to attend the conference – and really, if you aren’t busy on Saturday, you should – I have a discount code for you for $30 off the tickets! Here it is: TEDXVIP. Just go to the Ticket Purchase Page, enter the code where it says “enter promotional code” and you’re all set.

Hope to see you there! Have a great week, everyone!
