My mother never gave me that advice, at least she didn’t intend to. But in a way she did. My mother forged a path as a creative person, became a renowned chef and broke quite a few rules along the way. She may have told us to ‘be careful’, but she led by following her heart and taking chances…that must be what I absorbed!
Six years ago when I started messing around with team building through song, I had no idea where it would lead. I experienced the visceral thrill and the challenge of pulling a song together spontaneously, with a group of folks who had never written a song before, and I thought to myself, “Wow – that was fun, I need to do more of this”. Fast forward to present day and I’ve accidentally created a monster. A monster that’s my new life, my business, my passion and quite nicely, my livelihood.
Why Should You Care?
If you’ve read this far, I appreciate it, and this is why you should care: When you and your team enter into the songwriting process with us, when you trust us just enough to jump before you look, great things happen. We all need to get outside our collective comfort zone just often enough to stimulate new ideas, break down old ways of doing things – to encounter a potential future that’s just a bit better than where we are now.
Will Team Building Through Song change your life? Of course not! But every once in a while, you need to put yourself in midair to appreciate what’s really important when you’re back on the ground – Take a chance, tell your story, sing your song.
