Become A Connector

Do you have one hour and forty-five minutes to spare?

I’ll admit it, I have been sucked into the vortex that is Skillshare. For a very normal monthly fee (like, ten bucks), you can take a whole bunch of fascinating courses. Not the kind of courses that you probably see in catalogues or through the continuing education department of your local college. I’m talking about courses being offered by people like Simon Sinek, Susan Orlean, Seth Godin and courses with titles like The Possibilities of Instagram: Sharing Your Best PhotosHyperthinking: improve your day to day learning & creativity, and Humor Writing: Write Funny for the Internet

This is my kind of school. Smart classes. Relevant Topics. Right to the point. 

This week, Seth Godin launched his latest course on Skillshare. It’s called, Become a Connector: The Impresario Institute, and here’s the course abstract: 

“Impresarios are the connectors. They are the reason we are able to attend concerts, meet like-minded people at events and get inspired at organized talks — as talent and good ideas in the world need to be shared by someone. Author and entrepreneur Seth Godin walks through a workshop covering all the bases of being an impresario — how to start, who to get on your team, and how to scale your connections. By the end of this class, you’ll be inspired to recognize opportunity, assemble your own event, and to be a connector for the rest of your life.”

I’m about halfway through this course… and thoroughly enjoying it.

If you’re still not convinced that you could learn a thing or two (or twenty) about how to build relationships that matter, you can watch this teaser video:
