The Courage of Compassion: Transforming Your Experience with Criticism
We have all been online long enough to have encountered criticism from people whose faces we will never see. Some of it is constructive, and some if it is awful, anonymous assumptions and slurs that we do our best to ignore. Sometimes our emotions prevent us from making a distinction between that which could be helpful and that which is just plain bullying. I have spent 14 years confronting both—from comments to emails to websites to actual forums dedicated to me and my character—trying to figure out the best way to pick up and move on when I encounter something particularly vicious. Because it isn’t going away. There isn’t a cure for it. It cannot be fixed or stopped. Learning how to deal with both is a factor of life that our children will have to endure on a scale we never did, in ways we probably can’t imagine. I’ve tried and failed many times to react in the best possible way and have finally learned that “reacting” isn’t the answer. The answer is something much more fearless.

Creating Business Ideas

Brandon is an ordinary 21 year old with an extraordinary story to tell. At just 12 years of age Brandon was kicked out of school, at 14 he nearly died from drinking too much alcohol, at 16 he created an app development company and by 19 Brandon made 4 top-100 apps. But what happened in between? Let Brandon take you on his journey – be inspired to do what you love no matter how young or old you are.

  • Be inspired by an ordinary person that has done extraordinary things
  • How failure should be expected, accepted and embraced
  • Why persistence is the key to success
  • Witness further proof that breaks down the Gen-Y stereotype of laziness and poor work ethic

The 5 Ordinary Habits of Extraordinary Bloggers

We’ve all heard of the overnight success stories—those Internet sensations whose blog post or video went viral, bringing instant fame and fortune. As bloggers, we often spend a whole lot of time hoping for that big break, but the truth is that for most, success happens much more methodically. In this inspiring keynote, you’ll discover the five habits that can transform your blog from beginner to extraordinary. You’ll also:

  • Uncover the deceptively simple secret to creating awesome content (and why it matters so much)
  • Stop doubting your worth and instead learn how to promote your content in a way that gets noticed and shared
  • Learn how to fully leverage your platform and optimise your efforts
  • Finally begin to embrace your own strengths rather than wishing for someone else’s
