Today, let’s talk about something totally normal, like my celebrity crushes (and why you should apply for TEDx if you want a TED Talk).
You see…Anna Kendrick is my dream girl. She’s got a goofy sense of humor, can sing (you may have seen her in Pitch Perfect), and is drop-dead gorgeous.
Dating Anna Kendrick would be incredible, but frankly, there are some downsides. I’d have to move to wherever-she-lives, I bet she has lots of people that want to date her, and frankly, there are plenty of women that have similar traits all around me. If I lived my whole life obsessed with her, I’d be missing out on great relationships with women that are all around me and are probably a better fit. What I want is a woman that has the same qualities, but it doesn’t necessarily have to be her.
You may be wondering what my celebrity crush has to do with doing a TED Talk. The TED platform opens doors, is a massive credibility marker, and has the power to inspire and influence thousands of people around the world. But, it’s also extremely difficult to get. There’s a way you can do a TED Talk and reap all the benefits, and it’s a whole lot easier. [Read more…] about 50x your chances of getting a TED Talk
