WDS Episode #3: The Swan Effect

Van Edwards' talk was about telling the truth. Or, in other words, dispelling “The Swan Effect.” What’s the Swan Effect? It refers to the idea that, on the surface, you see a beautiful swan gliding peacefully across the water, but – just under the surface, ugly feet are paddling like crazy.  Because that’s how successful people (or at least the inspiring, relatable successful people) become successful. Their journey has some ugly bits and a whole lot of work goes into propelling them from Point A to B.

WDS Episode 1: The Leap of Faith

I ended up at WDS thanks to Live Your Legend (a movement similar to TheMillionTo1Club) that I follow on FB. Live Your Legend said write a FB post. I did. I won a ticket.

20 Ways to Get Inspired Fast

Sometimes you just lose your mojo. You get tired, frustrated, grumpy, sad, overwhelmed, or you're just done. It sucks, but don’t sweat it because it happens to everyone, and you can fix it.

Life Without a Smartphone

Life Without a Smartphone

I have a party trick that I carry in my purse or my pocket, and no matter where I am, it gets a reaction from people every time.

It’s 2016, I’m 27, and I have a flip phone.

At the time, Schober was an expository writing teacher at K-State and a mentor with K-State First. Although she had a passion for teaching, she said she felt as if she wanted more.
