What ensued was one of the most insightful discussions to date.

  2. […] The Grid Episode 41: During my time at Kelby Media in Tampa, I was invited to appear on the live TV show “The Grid” with Scott Kelby and RC. I had met RC before, and he is such a sweet man… and has the cutest daughter in the world. This was the first time I met Scott, and I loved how easy it was to talk to him. He is a big, sweet teddy bear that enjoyed making me look good.  The response from me being on this program was huge! We discussed inspiration, creativity, and basically a few tips on where/how I get my ideas. If you click the link above you can watch the episode along with a variety of links that I talk about. Those two guys were so sweet, made me feel so comfortable, and honestly made me feel like a rockstar. They talked me up, gave me support and were just so easy to talk to. Thanks for all those who watched, tweeted, and asked me such good questions!! […]

    I like the grid a lot and all the guests. This is BY FAR my favorite episode! Lindsay is fantastic! I can’t wait for her class on KT. I can’t make it to DC but you have to bring her to FL the next time Photoshop World is here and I would get my ticket just to go to her classes. Thank you Kelby for exposing us to amazing Photographers like Lindsay! I’m so excited I’m going to watch the show again!

  4. Don Evan says:

  28. kathleen moody says:

    love the show..

  29. Now I can comment on the episode! Great episode!

    Lindsay’s advices of “chase your business” is a very good one, and of course valid for any area, not only photography. Joe Grimes mentioned the same thing a couple of months ago “Make the phone calls”. But this social media approach is very interesting.

  30. Nancy, Thank you for all the links!!!

  31. Jay Stovall says:

    Scott, why doesn’t Lindsay work for you?

  32. Louise says:

    Bonjour! Comment allez-vous? Awesome show. love Lindsay… And awesome gifts… If you get my drift?

    RC, I too carry my iPad everywhere I go!

  33. Charles says:

    Awesome guest, I love Lindsay’s work.
    I would not mind winning her book or the Nik Software suite.

  34. Gloria Santiago says:

    Fantastic show! Lindsay was wonderful, please do another appearance on the GRID soon! I would love to get the Wallee. Thanks

  35. Janice says:

    Great show! Very inspirational. Nice job.
    Would love that little iPad stand thingy. Very cool.

  36. Katie Weirens says:

    love, LoVe, LOVE hearing Lindsey’s thought processes. She made it where she is with her own tenacity and wisdom! This was the kick in the a** I need! would LOVE the NIK software! This show was awesome!

  37. GREAT Show and AWESOME GUEST (Lindsay), I would like to WIN the SOFTWARE, thank you!

  38. Dave Nunez says:

    One of the best episodes to date, I agree!

  39. Andy says:

  40. I’d LOVE the NIK software package!!

  41. John Dabarno says:

    Nik Complete Collection

  42. Wonderful episode. Lindsay makes a great guest and I look forward to her classes on KelbyTraining.

    As for prizes put me in the running for the Nik Software plugins.

  43. Ron Blair says:

    I loved hearing what the thought process was for everyone in coming up with their ideas.

  44. Sam Fifer says:

    But does RC know… WHERE in Nebraska, Hazard is??

  45. Mike Bowen says:

    I can’t believe you didn’t ask Lindsay the most important question, “Is she single?”

    Very impressive photographer who could be a role model for anyone wanting to become a pro.

    Since you asked our preference, I’d choose the OnOne suite if I was the lucky winner.

  46. Ken Hunt says:

    Really was the best show ever!

  47. DAvid Rosas says:

    Great program makes me want and go out and get an Ipad. Great questions and great answers , This show has got to be one of the best I’ve seen in a long while.

  52. John Dabarno says:

    Very cool show, a lot to think about, I am an amateur photographer and I too sometimes try to think of new angles for my photography and it isn’t easy. Thanks for the tips.

  53. Bob Miyakusu says:
