The Elevator- Behind the Scenes

Yes I am doing the Behind the Scenes post a day late. I am okay with that. Mainly because I had not decided on a picture yet. So here we go. I couldn't decide on just one so I am going to do a series of pictures from the same event and the same "room".

This is the elevator at Allume. Oh yes, this elevator was a great meeting place. I met so many people in this elevator. But these girls are from the Dream Team. I don't even remember what was going on to where we were all in the elevator together. But at this point we crammed into the elevator and the conversations kept flowing. See the thing about elevators is that there is not a lot of room. So when you have more than 2 people in there you have to be up close and personal. You also have a choice in an elevator. You can strike up a few seconds of conversation and get to know a new person OR you can be silent and not acknowledge anyone else. You can meet great people like the ones in the pictures above, Jesse Hoover, Sarah Mae, Lisa Jo Baker, etc. You can step out of your comfort zone and maybe make a new friend. Or you can do what I normally do- act like there is no one else in this elevator and be silent. I can't even begin to tell you how many great conversations I had in the elevators. Yes, they may have been short but they were good and many continued out of the elevator. So the lesson I learned is that you should always take a chance and speak up in an elevator. You never know whose life you will influence in there.
