How to ask without shame, is the theme for today’s Advent video. A friend once joked that I wake up every morning and watch this video as part of my ritual. She couldn’t be far wrong. The talk is very much a part of my go-to sources of inspiration. It is a difficult habit, to ask without making yourself feeling vulnerable. But through her talk (and subsequently, through her book) Amanda Palmer makes a compelling case for why you should. A highly recommended watch, if you have not already done so.
