    Magic happens when interest and ability intersect. LOVE IT 🙂

    Very insightful!
    Look for the intersection area,
    If you can’t get paid for it still do it to feed your soul, really good to hear it for myself as I am at a point where I can’t get paid to do what I thrive at but I can figure how to do it in another way as it will surely feed my soul.
    And I want to try to teach my child this way of thinking….. to save much frustration in the future….

    Every one of these videos I’ve watched has an “aha” moment. This is like Ted Talks for 2Es. “If you can’t get paid for your gift, then you do it to feed your soul and you find a job to feed your family.” Debbie, you’ve really created a gift for parents. Thank you so much. It seems like no one else is helping us with this … not schools, not therapists … getting these experts together and interviewing them for busy parents who are worried about their shiny, quirky kids and aren’t sure where to turn.

      Robyn, ‘Ted Talks for 2e’s’ — love this! Thanks so much for your kind words!

        I think it is even better than Ted Talks for 2e – I often watch Ted Talks and it is one-way information – this is 2-way – we can ask questions, give in put too and thus it is better than Ted Talks 😉

    What a delightful nugget! Thank you, from a 2E adult, who is the parent of three 2E kids as well as being a teacher who loves helping his students find this intersection.
    It actually reminded me a bit of “Briefe an einen jungen Dichter” (Letters to a young poet) by Rainer Maria Rilke?
