Have you ever said this to yourself?
"What if I could have back all that money I've spent on eating at restaurants over the years?"
Replace "eating at restaurants" with whatever you want… clothes, movies, cars, you get it.
So what about time?
I always find myself saying "What if I could have back all that time I've spent sending emails?"
By now, you've probably heard of TED Talks. What is a TED Talk? According to their website, it's "Riveting talks by remarkable people, free to the world" and their tagline is "Ideas Worth Spreading". Some of the most inspirational bits of wisdom I've ever heard have come from the TED website. You truly need to spend an hour, or day or week just listening to TED Talks. Your world will be rocked I promise.
So recently TEDx events were started which are basically local versions of TED. Nashville recently held their 2nd annual TEDx Nashville event and I was honored to be involved. Other speakers included Ashley Judd, Jill Sobule, David Mead, a brain surgeon, a rocket scientist and many more. No pressure, right? The theme was "A Sense of Wonder". I decided to talk about Help-Portrait.

About: I’m a husband, a dad to two (soon to be four), a photographer, entrepreneur, teacher and I try to give back as often as possible. I founded a global photography movement called Help-Portrait and also founded an iPhone App called OKDOTHIS. My goal in life is to use my voice, ideas and creativity to inspire and help others. I live the simple life in Nashville, TN with my wife and two kids and we’re in the process of adopting two more children from Haiti (they’re almost home!). Read my official bio here.
