My TEDx talk has been featured on TED!
I was, for lack of a better word, shookt. It was TOTALLY unexpected, and to be honest, completely nerve-wracking. I immediately started cyber-stalking TED's posts, as any good millennial would, and the results were shocking: there were actual detractors in the comments section! (Or 'haters', as the kids would say.)
That's when I realized – we're not in Kansas anymore, Dorothy. Our work has spread. We're officially out of our filter bubble. And man, that's terrifying.
It actually sent me into a bit of a tailspin, questioning the validity of the work we do at Tribeless. Are we actually qualified to teach empathy to people? (Idk.) Do we need fancy certifications? (Right now we just have a bunch of testimonials.) What gives us the right to talk about any of this??? (Nothing. Which is oddly empowering, all things considered.)
Tribeless was borne of my own lived experience – of loneliness, disconnection, and wanting to heal my relationships. We started as a series of dinner parties, but over the last 4.5 years, we've evolved to become so much more: a training company with a global portfolio and the most wonderful community.
Our evolution was made possible by the people who engage with our work – who talk to us, collaborate with us, and send us emails asking to learn & grow.
They are the kindest, brightest, best people we know. (I count you, dear reader, among them.) Thank you for being in our inner circle. In this sea of madness, I'm genuinely grateful to be anchored by your support. 🌻
