Latest Design Sprint Certified Facilitator
As of this month, I am one of the newest certified Design Sprint facilitators! I've recently started the remote sprint portion (since most of my day job team is remote and all of my clients / students will be) and I'm super stoked to bring this to more people. A reminder for those who may feel it's a bit daunting ... Some companies encourage you to learn on the job. Consider discussing with your manager (if you have one) to use that time for this. And outside of that? Even if you only watch 1 video a day ... you'll be getting closer to your goal and compounding your success! (The compound effect at work.)

Celebration: Just completed my first workshop!
I have to do a happy dance! I just completed my first Lightning Decision Jam workshop with a couple I'm working with! I followed @Rebecca Courtney's suggestion at our last Q&A call and had them "Draw Your Neighbor" for an icebreaker and they loved it! It was messy because I haven't quite figured out Miro (it was a virtual session) so I ended up having them say aloud what they wrote on a note pad for me to type in the digital post its - BUT - this was still faster and more fun and flowing than what I would have done to mindmap in the past. We had votes on 4 items, determined which to start with, and they had their 'To Do' list for the next week! We all enjoyed it and I will never go back to traditional brainstorming again! So so so much appreciation for the team here at AJ&Smart for being so generous and world class with your content! Learning so so much!! Many thanks 💛🙏🏾💛🙏🏾

Landed first 2 hour workshop for $4k
Last week I facilitated a 2 hour workshop for an insurance company that wants to introduce a new offer to grow and change direction due to new California law that is killing its cash cow offer. To put things in context, in the past I charged $2k for a day. But, it never hurts to ask even thought the thought feels frightening. Best of the experience is that this was the first time I run this type of workshop - “The Story Framework Sprint” and in a new Indutry. Quote from the CEO - “we have too much knowledge in our head that it’s confusing to make sense of it in a simple way”. This helps to simplify our focus.

Hack for Distant Workshops / Travel
In San Francisco for a 34-person modified LDJ. I was going to bring it all with me in order to avoid a mishap...then I realized I could send everything to an Amazon Drop Point. Just picked it all up - so easy. I have enough supplies for my workshop on Thursday in Orlando, too. LFJ!
