This is a photo of a life-changing moment. I took it on November 23, 2013 at 4:23 PM. I had posted on FaceBook that I was going to be speaking at a conference in Amsterdam and Koosje Koene invited me to tea when I was in town. We’d never met in person, only online and we were both a little nervous at meeting a total stranger.
I’m glad we did. Well, that’s an incredible understatement. That glass of tea led to lots of emails to a business idea to our first kourse …. to over five years of SketchBook Skool.
That cup of tea rocked my world.
Are you missing an opportunity to connect IRL with an online friend? Did you read about a meetup in your neck of the woods but it conflicted with your chiropodist appointment, your plans to bingewatch Frasier, your nap schedule?
My advice: think again, get off your duff, and don’t miss the chance that you might just meet a lifelong friend.
And when you do, tell us about it and share the pictures.
