The NYCi team is proud to report “The Failure Method: Why Taking Risks is Important to Being Successful” was a huge success! Our gracious hosts, Meetup HQ, set up an amazing space and treated everyone to pizza and drinks. Shout out to Kathryn, Justin, Erin and Nora for being so great to work with. All attendees received beautiful cards and stickers from Holstee and awesome ecosystem notebooks thanks to Sterling Publishing.
It was an honor to moderate a panel of such inspiring creative professionals. Amber Rae, Jason Boog, Wendy Wecksell, and Dave Brown answered questions about risks they’ve taken, how they bounced back, things they wished they’d done, how to be a great intern, and more!
Reviews from the masses:
“The panel discussion was incredibly informative. It was inspirational to see four people who have pursued their passions while sticking to their creative philosophies.”
“I loved each panelist’s honesty; their experiences are inspiring me to get over the fear of failing and now, I’m actually looking forward to it because it might just make a cool story some day.”
We’re happy to announce our next meetups! March 23rd we’ll be hosting “Become an Interview Ninja.” April 6th will be the first NYCi Casual Monthly Meetup! These meetups will be a chance to hang out with NYCi team and contributors, make new friends, eat food, and have good conversation. Join our meetup group to stay updated.
