Awesome Failures

G&T Cover

Last night I was the guest speaker for the Talented Unlimited journal. The collection honors students from five counties, locally, and is arranged by the Washington, Saratoga, Warren, Hamilton and Essex BOCES Gifted and Talented program. It was an honor to present to these talented artists of photography, paint, sketch, drawing, and writing.

My speech is titled “Awesome Failures” and its intent was to demonstrate that the path to success is not necessarily a straight line.

I have not watched the video you are about to see. My wife did, and said it was great, so that’s all I need. I simply can’t watch myself on screen (television or computer), and so we’ll have to trust that this is as awesome as I felt it was. However, in the process of uploading, I did notice that the student who recorded did so with  my phone vertical, not horizontal. It’s not really an ironic testament to the title, but close 🙂 Enjoy:
