For those of you who learn best by listening, I was recently interviewed about wisdom entrepreneurs by W3W3, Internet talk radio, billed as "Colorado’s Voice of the Technology Community." Click here for more info on the interview and here to jump right into listening.
A quick backstory: Terry Morreale is the interviewer and a one-time colleague of mine, when I was an engineer at U S WEST, over a decade ago. I was thirtysomething and Terry was just out of college. Even though we live in the same town, we lost touch with each other. We reconnected this year, when a friend and former colleague of mine from Lucent Technologies sent me the link for an interview she had done for W3W3. As I was listening for my friend’s voice, I was surprised to hear not just one, but two familiar voices.
I contacted Terry, invited her to coffee and we caught up on each other’s lives. While I left engineering several years ago, Terry is still an engineer. And since our days of being cubicle neighbors, she’s developed a passion for helping women in technology. Thus, her current role as an interviewer for the Women in Information Technology series of W3W3. Terry was intrigued when I told her about A Bigger Voice and how we are using technology as a tool for building a community. She suggested we do an interview.
The moral of the story for those interested in A Bigger Voice: It’s a small world and networking opportunities are always present, if you keep your eyes open.
My thanks to Terry and the co-founder of W3W3, Larry Nelson, for helping to spread the word about A Bigger Voice and wisdom entrepreneurs.
