Are you ready to “Embrace the shake?”


Phil Hansen

I had the pleasure of meeting Phil Hansen (@Philinthecircle) at the recent Sustainable Brands conference in San Diego.  Phil is an artist who had to overcome, well, I should probably leave the story to him.  I’ll just say that I was inspired by his talk, and that I think you’ll come away from watching this with a new  perspective on limits.

Enjoy. (I sure did.)

I’m proud to post this on Father’s Day as my pop (and mom) taught me to believe I could do whatever I wanted in life.  There was a time I lost sight of that, but since I’ve renewed that belief (in no small part due to the support of my wife) my life has been on a different trajectory where possibility abounds.  I encourage you to cultivate the same outlook.  To paraphrase John Marshall Roberts (another incredible speaker at the Sustainable Brands conference), you have to remove your own inner barriers to change.

If you can make it through this one without shedding a tear of joy, you’re probably better off avoiding this corner of the internet.

Happy Holidays from the DP Blog!  Hope you and yours are happy, healthy and wise.  🙂
