A couple of months ago I went to Dream Year Pitch Night event. Ben Arment had just released his book Dream Year and Pitch Nights were held all over the US in promotion of the book but really to promote people living out its message.
I'm on Arment's newsletter list, which is how I first heard about it. When I saw a friend was planning the Nashville event, I thought it could be a fun night. This is how I first encountered Ashley Snyder.
Ashley was one of several people who made a pitch that night and when she talked about The Known Project, I knew immediately I wanted to be a part of her vision.
Ashley believes everyone has a story to tell and she goes a step further in creating a safe place for them to share it. Watch the video to see what I mean.
How often do we feel truly seen and known? How often do we really see other people?
Ashley and I have since met for coffee and let me tell you: she's the real deal. I believe in what she's doing and I don't know the role I'll play in it but I do know I'll be cheering her on along the way.
The next Known Project event is happening in Nashville Saturday November 8. If you're in town, please consider joining us and listening to the stories shared. Let me know if you'll be there!
Think about whether you feel seen. Think about what your secret might be and think about who you might tell. Think about how your story could change the world around you. Think about how someone's story could change your world.
