Thursday, May 14, 2009


I tried putting this video on the flickr account but it cut it down to minute and a half so moved it to youtube in order to get the whole think posted. It seems to stop short but that is where chris stopped and introduced another speaker, so it is the whole talk just really clipped short.

This is a great video not only to introduce and explain what the SP book will be a bout and cover but also since the book is about SP it is also just a great intro for people to SP! Please feel free to share it with anyone who is interested in SP. I used it once already to show a group at work when i was doing a presentation on SP and the conference and it worked great as a way to explain the core of SP from it's beginning to the place it is going and gone.

Also on Youtube are intro classes on how to use the site which I intended to use to teach a free class at my library for anyone to learn about SP. I will use all these videos and then update and put my own intro to SP and let people ask me questions and just be available to help them figure out and navigate the site. I think the biggest hurdle many have to using the site is they think it is overwhelming and so I hope to ease their thoughts on this and show them how easy it is to use and all the benefits and tools it provides in starting a new journey and lifestyle. I am trying this as a pilot program and hope other can do it as well at your local library, work, schools, churches, community centers and anywhere else you can help Spread the Spark by just using these simple videos and tools to help people get started on SP and/or keep going. Almost all of us are experts when it comes to using SP website and the basic concepts, we just don't always admit it or think it but we are, so share the knowledge! Spread the Spark in your Community for it will always give you back more than what you ever put into it. And helping other get started and reach their goals is just an awesome feeling and with SP so easy and exciting to do!

Think about it! emoticon emoticon

    YAY!!!!!! :D Thanks for sharing the link to the video -- I will link to it in my blog as well. :) Did you crate the intro to SP videos or are the SP's? I haven't looked yet so I'm just wondering (also can't watch videos at work - BOO... well technically I can but that's where I draw the line for myself. hAHAHA :D). That picture of you and OUTOFCONTROL is so cute because you are so tall and she is so teeny. :)
