Two weeks ago I had the wonderful pleasure to sit next to Elizabeth Streb at a dinner party. She told me she was an extreme action specialist who flies. I couldn’t help but tilt my head to the side and say “Tell me more!” Luck has it, she talked about her quest of defying gravity in this wonderful TED talk.
What an incredible woman! Check out her company Streb.
I am so happy to see my friend Bas Berkhout for once in front of the camera.
I met Bas many moons ago when he filmed a Like Knows Like with me. During a day of filming, I was able to plant the seed that he should leave Holland and move to NYC. He did and joined our creative co-working community. We’ve been fast friends ever since. Love this talented man.

Last month’s CreativeMornings theme was Chaos and we had the honor to have Shannon Lee fly in from Los Angeles and share her story.
In her open talk, Shannon Lee shares how she dealt with chaos in her life through healing and learning from her father’s timeless philosophies.
What a lot of people don’t know is that Bruce Lee was not just a martial art master but a deep philosopher. Some of my favorite quotes are by him. He was a deep soul. I am grateful Shannon is making sure her father’s philosophies are spreading and live on.
Couch to 5K is one of the most popular exercise programs in the world, created by my office mate Josh Clark. He created the program in 1996 after getting over a relationship break-up by running. His system builds from a few seconds of running, to longer distances, over a series of weeks. I really should give this a try.
For the past 70 years, scientists in Britain have been studying thousands of children through their lives to find out why some end up happy and healthy while others struggle.
