The Human Potential in all of us, eric calls it, and we talk about it again today on GF Radio. Steve Jobs talking about how we are all capable of all sorts of stuff, from this YouTube video.
From Monica we learned about the website, The99percent.com, and talk about how to find your work sweet spot, by focusing on doing what you like with genuine interest and skills. Kinda like do what you love, the money will follow but with a dose of reality kicked in.
And from the same site, Mike and Eric talk about email etiquette, and how most emails can be negative and how to write emails that wont be taken the wrong way. Eric decides emoticons are ok to use, as emails can always be read the wrong way. Make way for more smiley faces from Eric now.
Kickstarter, and how to run your own kickstarter campaign is our next topic. Eric suggests a free PDF book, The Kickstarter's Guide to Kickstarter, by Nelson de Witt, as a great place to start learning about running a successful Kickstarter campaign.
Planning is very important when deciding to have a Kickstarter campaign, so we have decided to wait a bit to start the GardenFork Kickstarter campaign. Stay tuned for news in February.

Steve Job's quote from PBS show:
When you grow up you tend to get told that the world is the way it is.
And your life is just to live your life inside the world
Try not to bash into the walls too much
Try to have a nice family life, have fun, save a little money
That's a very limited life
Life can be much broader once you discover one simple fact
And that is that everything around you that you call life
Was made up by people who were no smarter than you
And you can change it, you can influence it,
You can build your own things that other people can use
Once you learn that, you'll never be the same again.
