On today’s Fast Action Fridays, it’s all about embracing our weird traits … the individual and combination of things that make us uniquely us, whether that’s our individual selves or the business environment we represent and promote.

My guest, KiKi L’Italien, is a top nonprofit digital strategy expert, video image consultant, and dance mom. She’s partied with Marilyn Manson (Oh!), put mattifier on Alan Greenspan’s bald head, and was on the television show 60 Minutes for slam poetry.

Don’t miss downloading her fabulous free resource: How to Be Weird and Look Good Doing It. It’s a checklist for people who want to embrace their weird in the best way possible..
