If you have 3 minutes to spare today, check out this incredible TED Talk.
In Derek Sivers’ TED talk “How to Start a Movement,” the ideas of leading and following are explored. Derek shows a video clip of a man dancing alone before the first follower joins him. Soon, tens of people have joined their crowd, and they’ve started a movement.
Sivers’ TED Talk illustrates a valuable lesson in entrepreneurship and business. The first person to have the guts to stand out and risk ridicule is important, but the biggest takeaway is that “If you really care about starting a movement, have the courage to follow and show others how to follow. And when you find a lone nut doing something great, have the guts to be the first one to stand up and join in.”
UnBooked loves this concept, because we have many early partners, such as Valpak and Bizlink, that have had the courage to follow us and stand up and join in our adventure. These early followers are integral to our success, because they have transformed us into a leader and have shown that our movement is powerful.
We look forward to showing others how to follow and nurturing our early partners so that new followers emulate Bizlink and Valpak.
Join us as we build momentum for the UnBooked movement.
