I have always been a bit of a fan of inspirational quotes. When I first joined Twitter I loved sharing inspirational business quotes including the popular #quote hashtag … until everyone was doing it! Mind you, it was a great way to build a following! I still tweet them here and there but nowhere near the volume that I did in the early days of Twitter.

I stumbled across this video some time ago now. I had shared it on my Posterous Blog (now deceased) but not here. I found it to be powerful and so it’s time to have it on this blog, now that Posterous is no longer! “If you’ve learned a lot about leadership and making a movement, […]

I’m a big fan of Simon Sinek and sometime ago shared a favourite TEDx Talk he did ‘How Great Leaders Inspire Action’. Well here’s another inspirational short interview for those small business owners.

This is one of my favourite TEDx Talks and I’m surprised I haven’t shared it here earlier. I came across it sometime last year and from memory may have watched it three times that day!

Simon Sinek presents a simple but powerful model for how leaders inspire action, starting with a golden circle and the question “Why?”


I recently came across this TEDx talk by Brene Brown and found it fascinating especially now I spend many hours connecting and playing in the social media playground. Brene Brown studies human connection and our ability to empathize, belong and love. In a beautifully delivered talk, she shares what she has learnt from her research, one that sent her on a personal quest to know herself as well as to understand humanity. I hope you find it as fascinating as I did!
