The Great Amanda Palmer: A Courageous and Powerful Teacher for Women
When I first saw Amanda Palmer’s Ted Talk I promised myself I would reach out to her until she would sit down with me. Amanda Palmer is a shocking anomaly in this world – an extremely sensitive and brilliant individual who is committed to living and more importantly teaching her truth. I would label Amanda a teacher first and foremost… a teacher of acceptance, uniqueness and of the heart. She unapologetically and I believe many times, unknowingly, places herself in continual scrutiny by simply being AMANDA FUCKING PALMER (as she calls herself). I was humbled and in awe of her Ted Talk, The Art of Asking, and was even more inspired sitting down with her in person. I hope you get the chance to watch our Conversation.
