Live! Join Me for Tea with Seth Godin

Live tea time with Seth Godin

Seth Godin, Yellow GlassesJoin me and Seth Godin for tea on Friday, Oct. 2 @ 12pm PDT.

Seth Godin has been writing and teaching about the creative side of business — and the business side of creativity — for decades, including 19 bestsellers. I discovered Seth in 2002 when I was just starting Samovar. And I’ve been a fan ever since.

I hope you’ll join us for this free, livestream tea time. It’s going to be an intimate conversation about art, business, creativity, and the obstacles that all creatives must face — and overcome — on their path. We’ll also discuss Seth’s forthcoming book, The Practice. We’ll make time for Q&A at the end, but feel free to submit questions in advance when you register.

We’ll be drinking Turmeric Spice. You can order a bag for yourself to sip along from the comfort of your own home.

I love all our tea times, but I’m very excited about this one. I hope to see you there!
