Who are you a fan of, who gets your attention, have you told them, if not, do it, tell them in as many ways as you can. We all look for validation, it doesn’t matter from whom really, we’ll take the praise from people we may never know, we just need to feel important, what’s sad about this need is, we’re already important!
Something we should be doing, giving away, and not waiting for someone to give it to you, we should be helping others get what they want, by giving recognition, and making sure they are aware that they make a difference in your life. It doesn’t matter how they make a difference, as long as they do, and it’s positive and helps you hold your head higher.
I’m a fan of a number of people, sometimes for what they do, but mostly for who they are, I look for the deeper person, I’m always assessing the heart. With that in mind, I thought I would share some of my fans with you, some I know personally, some I have yet to meet, but they all touch my world on some level that makes me want to do more, and I feel better about myself.
I’m calling this the Fan Series, these precious few, and in no particular order, the first does not mean I like them more than the others, I’m just sharing in a very random order : ) I have not told any of these great people I’m writing about them, I’ll let you do that : ) I hope that covers any angst.
Teri Conrad – Conversations That Matter!
MAD love affair with IDEAS, Brand, Debate and Exploration; Culture; Digital Strategy, Sociology, Media and PR. Passionate about genuine connection and the power of ’enchantment’ and having #ConversationsThatMatter! Social Media / Business Strategist / Connector / Speaker / Facilitator / Real Estate / Over Thinker!
I’ve known Teri a few years, we’ve met many times, but I’m certain she has no idea how she makes my world a better place. It’s possible, she has no idea how I feel towards her, but I value her as person first, and hopefully a friend second (I’ll let her decide). I’m always watching her online presence, and she provides great ideas and content (I like the ideas more, cause she’s smart). Teri is a very passionate person, she’s very infectious, you can’t help but be drawn in by her laugh and wit. I hope you all get the opportunity to spend time with her, more importantly, if you ever get the opportunity to work with her as a client, you’ll be in awe of how she does what she does.
You can find Teri on almost all the mainstream social networks, constantly sharing, connecting, and setting the example of how to use branding and PR. I urge you to take the time to reach out to her, and begin a very special relationship. I am proud to say, I am a fan of Teri Conrad.
Rather than rip her BIO and details, I’ll just give a link to her website, you can do your own assessing: http://www.tericonrad.ca - let her know you read about her on my blog, I think she would be surprised and pleased. Thanks Teri for being who you are, you are making the world a better place, I pray you stay true to yourself. Keep making your art!
