Decorative concrete contractors…Develop new skills when you are down

TED is a small nonprofit devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. It started out (in 1984) as a conference bringing together people from three worlds: Technology, Entertainment, Design. Raghava was one of the lesser-known and less-academic speakers at the TED Conference last month in Long Beach, CA. His engergy and spunk captured the TED audience’s attention as perhaps no other speaker did. He did nothing more than tell his story, which he said is one of extreme highs and lows. It is a tale of several lives wrapped into one. Please watch the video clip below. I am sure many of our decorative concrete contractors (or artisans) can learn some thing from this video.

I found that as an Artist, Raghava’s work is great, as a human being the sense of spreading happiness is touching. Now living in Brooklyn, NY, Raghava says he has found some of his most rewarding work in teaching yound childen to draw. Like we say in our Bob Harris led decorative concrete workshops, he says “I teach them to enjoy the process and try not to create anything perfect”.

Please feel free to live your comments.
