A handful of magic beans

Life in Vietnam had many gifts in store for me, one of them being the place where I hosted my very first workshop. You see, I came to Hanoi to work on a few projects, do some traveling and to take a course called Knowmads, a creative business education for changemakers. As part of the curriculum I had to present a final project so I chose to use my book to be it. In the course I had to learn to think beyond the limitations of the book pages, which was hard since I have been staring at it for the past 2.5 years. I surrendered and let the content morph into a seminar.

I didn’t know that the topic of self-acceptance would be as relevant in Asia as it is in Brazil or the U.S., so I found myself in front of a full room. The seminar was taught based on alternative education, so it is dynamic and interactive, and I plan to use the same format for the book tour. As it is almost time to leave this city, I will miss the friends I made and the lessons I learned. If I were to point out what I got from the time here I can’t. Because what I got can’t be measurable. I am just so glad I traded my cow…

You should never hesitate to trade your cow for a handful of magic beans. ― Tom Robbins
