The Art of Asking: Amanda Palmer

A few weeks ago I finished reading Seth Godin’s The Icarus Deception. I truly loved the message behind this book. One of the examples in the books was a woman by the name of Amanda Palmer and her amazing suceess with her Kickstarter campaign to raise money for a new album. The goal was $100,000 and she ended up raising $1.2 million dollars. I was aware of her musical work with one of her previous bands called the Dresdan Dolls but I did not know a lot about her.

Recently she gave a talk at TED 2013 on the Art of Asking. If you have 15 minutes please watch this. Its truly a great talk.

Up next A Craftsman Extreme Jim Dalrymple pointed out the artist who was responsible for creating the artwork behind the cover of John Mayer’s album “Born and Raised”. I had Creating With Wood The other day I had a blocs customer ask me for a source of high quality wood covers for Apple TV. I quickly pointed them to Lazerwood Industires.
