I have seen a few Ted Talks(r) and they are truly awesome! I hope that through the grace of God, I might be blessed with the stage of a Ted Talk(r)!  Ted Talk is not my brand and Ted Talk has not approved this little venture. I in no way speak for the brand and they know not who I am. But here's to keeping my feet on the ground whilest reaching for the stars! I also do not own that saying! Scroll down to read about the saying below.

This broadcast I will discuss a futurist, what is it? How do you know if you are one? Is it a real job? If it is I think I know what I want to bewhen I grow up! Lol...

Please tell me if you would be interested in a Ted Talk(r) based on the next three or four broadcasts!  

ReferenceCasey Kasem, a well known television and radio personality in the recording industry, closes each show's remarks by saying, “Keep your feet on the ground, and keep reaching for the stars.”

I had a young lady tell me decades ago she was a futurist. My first thought, "Sounds like BS to me!" About a year ago, when I was studying job descriptions using Indeed, I realized that people who call themselves Data Analysts as well as Data Scientists are doing the same thing I did back when it was hard. In fact, with newer tools those two jobs almost seem silly to me to even define. I had to walk to the library both ways, in the snow AND UPHILL to convert data arrays, text fields, databases back and forth. AND WE LIKED IT!   

When I started brain-storming on a better radio show and a possible Ted Talk(r) in my future, I realized that sometimes you don't even know what you are. You know how you go about making money, but NOT WHAT YOU ARE, by nature. I thought of some old advice by Casey Kasum, "Keep your feet on the ground and keep reaching for the stars."
