You might come to regret not asking for what you need. That is the lesson from Sunny’s interview in the just-released book “Maximize Your Potential” by 99u.
Friends of a friend might be the people who could change your life or give you the opportunity you need, so don’t be shy at a party and keep to what you know, expand your circle—even if it takes a drink or two to give you the courage to do so.
The interview (and the rest of the book) is full of useful anecdotes and tips, it was just released this week by 99u, part of Behance.
As Sunny says in the interview; “[…] if you don’t ask, 100% of the time you won’t get. You’ve just got to get over yourself.” Maybe this book will help you get around to asking the right questions!
An interview with Sairah Ashman, COO of Wolff Olins, about innovation and inspiration. Hope you enjoy it.
"We’re now in a connection-based economy. Big tectonic shifts in our society, in government and in financial institutions have moved us from an economy of information to an economy of connection – it’s the new currency."
Sunny is at TED Global in Edinburgh and just gave a talk to all the TED Fellows. Here are some pictures as she shares her experience on how to take full advantage of your time at TED.
Belated congratulations to my friend Sara Horowitz, Founder of Freelancers Union, who was just last month appointed to the Board of Directors of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York!
Come to our next Standard Talk: The Heart’s Desire on Sept. 25th at @StandardNY!
/////////The Heart’s Desire:
Aphrodisiacs and the Magic of the Heart in Love///////
Join Emilie Baltz, aphrodisiac researcher extraordinaire and Nina Tandon, the heart’s scientist, in exploring the hidden inner workings of our bodies in love and lust. From how food affects our human urges to how the heart changes as its tightly gripped by romantic love: our bodies reflect our innermost urges, and this evening we will discuss how and why this happens to all of us.
Emilie Baltz is a creative omnivore. Working at the intersection of food, sex and design, she creates work that provokes our relationship to eating and drinking through imagery, products, books and experiences. Her clients include Ebay, The Museum of Sex, Droog Design, The New York Parks Department, The Vitra Design Museum and GOOD magazine. She is presently working on a fine art cookbook based on the relationship between love, food and aphrodisiacs titled “L.O.V.E FOODBOOK”, to be released in the US this year. Emilie serves as faculty in SVA MFA Products of Design and is a visiting lecturer at l’ESAD in Reims, France.
Nina Tandon is a tissue engineer at Columbia University and professor at Cooper Union. Her research involves the use of electrical signalling for directing cell differentiation. She spent one year working on an electronic nose used to “smell” lung cancer, and then completed her PhD studying electrical stimulation for cardiac tissue engineering. She is now continuing her research on electrical stimulation for broader tissue engineering applications, including heart tissue.
