I had the extreme pleasing of giving my first college lecture with my partner Jami this year.
This was unique for me. I’ve given more college lectures at this point than I received in college so I always take a lot of joy from these interactions. I never found my place in college as a young man and I’m appreciative that I seem to have found my place there later in life.
Also, I’ve never given a lecture with someone. I was asked by my friend Dave Gould to attend his green room class. Whenever Dave has a class that’s doing something new I want to be a part of it.
Dave has a unique approach to life and learning which I know is a guiding light for those around him. Including me. He is a perfect example of what happens when you practice and teach gratitude.
Dave is also open minded enough that when he talked to me about coming to class I mentioned bringing Jami and Margaux. After some really long conversations with Jami we decided we would do the class together and thought this was the right forum to give it a try.
thank you to Dave and his class for being open to this experiment. we are both grateful.
The reason that I thought Jami’s inclusion was so much more important than mine is because Jami just struck out on her own recently and started her own business.
Emotionally and financially it’s scary as hell to get started.
