I continue to be in awe of our online connected communities that where we discover our passions and then allow us to act on it in ways we previously didn’t consider possible for ourselves.
Just a few examples:
You see it in places like Uber as well. Drivers starting out doing odd jobs on Uber and then developing enough business to work for themselves.
Over the past year, I’ve met extraordinary photographers that found their talents with the arrival of the iPhone 4 & Instagram a few years back. Through their beautiful imagery, they gained a massive following which led to a professional career in photography. It wasn’t pro photographers going to Instagram. It was the other way around.
We have invested in Storenvy, Skillshare, Kitchensurfing and some even newer communities (we haven’t announced yet) —— I hope they all can help people work for themselves and focus on their true love.
