A Day in the Life
1. How I almost came to work for President Obama...
After giving a talk about the merging of music, media and entrepreneurship, someone came up to congratulate me. He mentioned he was impressed with how I coordinated my story with some snappy visuals.
“I manage the social media initiatives for the Obama administration, and I would like to talk with you sometime.”
He gave me his card. Totally legit.
I thought: finally…Finally, after all my hard work and dedication, the endless hours and sacrifices, something big was about to happen.
“I’m going to work for President Obama; “I’m going to work for President Obama,” I sang.
I met up with him a few days later.
He told me he was leaving his post with the Obama administration to become a social media consultant, and to please consider hiring him to guide me in that area.
I think that’s what is meant by a “teachable moment.”
