I’m excited to welcome you to this my latest #FreedomFriday update, where I’m committed to Sharing Our Solutions.
Event: Star Wars The Force Awakens
This week globally Star Wars The Force Awakens has been showcased. I won’t spoil the movie for you if you haven’t seen it. I know it won’t be everyone’s cup of tea, but I think it’s essential viewing for anyone in life and business.
I turn 38 in February and I was born a Star Wars child.. The stories of the Jedis, R2D2, Luke Skywalker and the rest filled our youth.
This movie is number 7 in the sequence.. and was a movie I’ve been waiting for what seems like a lifetime.
It poses some interesting questions about the nature of story, and movie making in the current age.
It also highlights how far technology has come from the old days, the world of 3D Imax of cutting edge animations and reality almost indistinguishable from fantasy.
Star Wars.. has shaped our world.
One question I was asked at our screening in London a few days ago….
What if it had been called Star Peace?
What’s Good about that?
You can be a part of something that will shape our culture for the next decade, the other movies are in the works and well if you loved the original movies, then you’ll love…. (I promised not to tell you yet.. can’t risk spoiling it for you.. 😉
Book: The Power of Glamour, by Virginia Postrel
I learnt about this book via Roy H Williams at the Wizard Academy and his recommendation, and his explanations meant it’s a book that had to be on my to read list – especially given my focus on business growth, positioning and branding.
What does Glamour mean to you?
This book explores that subject and if you’re interested in influencing people, pitching your ideas and getting greater traction then in my view it’s on you need to read.
This is a subject that I feel in the modern times of video and web marketing is more and more important.
What’s Good About This?
The best camera is the one you have with you… the challenge most of us have our iphone with us.. or smart phone. However we don’t have a tripod to mount them on, and we don’t have an easy way to mount the phone on a tripod even if we do have a tripod.
The shoulder pod helps by:
- Fitting to your smart phone – including the big iPhone 6 Plus S
- Having an easy to hold handle that feels natural and easy
- Has a tripod mount built in, so you can easily and securely connect your phone to a tripod.
I’ve had others before, but this one feels good, and I’ve been happily carrying it in my pocket for the last few weeks.
