“Demand responsibility but don’t worry at all about authority."

Seth Godin, a bestselling author, entrepreneur and marketer, believes that we have a few things backwards when it comes to getting the work we want and positioning ourselves in the direction we want to go. In this CreativeMornings/NewYork talk from May 2013, he reminds us that it is deep within us to let those in ‘authority' tell us what to do. But, he encourages us to shift the tone from authority to responsibility. Do work on purpose. Make things that matter, even if they’re unpopular. Create work environments that help you succeed, even when that means failing first. And, in his words, go and make something happen.

Provocative and moving, Cindy’s talk will inspire you to challenge the status quo in more than just sex — but also in relationships, in business, and in life.

Aisha Fukushima, a singer, speaker, educator, and activist, strongly believes that love work is the most ideal work. For her, it appears at the nexus of happiness and purpose, and is manifested by her work in RAPtivism, her global hip hop project spanning 10 countries and four continents. It highlights the ways culture can contribute to universal efforts for social justice by challenging oppression with creative expression. During her talk at CreativeMornings/Oakland in November 2015, Aisha uses her journey to becoming a RAPtivist as a backdrop to inspire us to critically question the world around us, seek meaningful connections with each other, and use the arts as a catalyst for social change. She empowers us to seek out our sense of purpose, but reminds us to also remain a listener with your ears, your eyes, and your spirit. So what does your love work look like?
