I made it back home to San Antonio in one piece. The trip to Las Vegas was great! Over the course of three days I was able to meet face-to-face with a number of people that I’ve communicated with for some time and even make some new friends.
Whoever said that people don’t read Twitter bios was crazy! I found this out very quickly when I was asked on three occasions if I brought my guitar. If you haven’t read my bio on Twitter, the last sentence says “Official campfire guitarist by night…” Now, I’ve been known to travel with her before, but I didn’t think there would be an opportunity on this SHRM excursion.
So, I made a few promises since I had a lapse in judgment and I agreed to film this. I must admit, it’s a little bit awkward to see myself on a video… even more so when I’m playing guitar. But, a promise is a
promise… so, here you go!
On a somewhat related note, we’ve all heard about this concept of “transparency” in social media. In fact, I’ve gone so far as to teach people what it means. Taking the next step of sharing something previously reserved to the confines of my home was/is a stretch. The great news is that I should be able to connect on a whole new level with all of those functional campfire guitarists in the world! And with the singers of the world, this should make you feel really great about your progress! 😉
How far have you stretched yourself? Has it resulted in connecting with people you previously would not have?
