Regardless of your level of FileMaker expertise, you’ve made it to this point and you have stories to share. And we’re here to read about them (via our forum) and listen to them (with our open mic event).
THE ANALOG FORUM
“A day will come when the story inside you will want to breathe on its own. That’s when you’ll start writing.” – Sarah Noffke
Starting Monday morning, we’ll setup an analog forum. Instead of typing out a post, you’ll be using pen and notecard. Want to reply to someone’s post? There’s no “Reply” button. Instead, grab another notecard, write what you want to say, and then attach it to the previous notecard. Keep the chain going as long as you want.
So what do you write on the card? Whatever you want! We’re all human, and we’ve all been through the good, the bad, and everything in between. What story do you think others could learn from? What story are you most proud of? What stories have impacted your life? Your career? Your mentality or wellbeing? It can be a one liner or something with a little more gusto. It’s your story and your choice.
While we promote that everyone stand tall and own their story, we understand sometime that’s hard to do, and sharing it is a huge step no matter what. If you’d rather be on the anonymous side, reach out to or find Martha Zink or Lisette Wilson and they can write it for you (and keep your name confidential).
THE OPEN MIC NIGHT
“When we share our stories, what it does is, it opens up our hearts for other people to share their stories. And it gives us the sense that we are not alone on this journey.” – Janine Shepherd
Join us in the evening to sit around the proverbial campfire and share our stories. Some stories are too long to share on a note card, or maybe you want to throw in some voices or emphasis. We get that. Regardless if you shared it on the analog forum, open mic night gives you the opportunity to share some lessons learned, challenges, and success stories.
We want to encourage anyone who wants to share their story, to Stand Tall and be proud of what they’ve been through. It’s not always easy to share with a group, but remember - we’ll all be at PauseOnError to support each other.
