This past weekend myself and some of the members of Mastermind Connect I had the pleasure of joining some of New York’s brightest young people from My Brother’s Keeper Fellows, Urban Ambassadors, NYC Great of the NY Department of Education programs for a panel discussion. I hosted a creative workshop in efforts to ignite their creative potential by defining their life “majors” and “minors”– a concept originally coined by Translation, LLC founder Steve Stoute.
I walked the students through a mind-mapping exercise designed to emphasize the need and value of diversifying their skill sets to be “multi-hyphenated” professionals by integrating their passions and hobbies into their career development. Following my workshop, I was joined by founder + creative director, Nate Nicholas of the Palette Group where he taught the students how to position advertisements products. Students got 30-minutes to produce a TikTok ad for a product of their choice.
