A long time ago, we ran a video bootcamp in Vail, Colorado in partnership with The Travel Channel.
It was a kind of ski and shoot thing.
I am not much of a skier (not since I separated from my ex-wife, who was Canadian and used to drag me up to the family ski house in Sugarbush - cold, wet and unpleasant - but you gotta do what you gotta do..)
In any event, one of the participants in the Vail Bootcamp was a great skier (I think they all were) and her name was Juliana Broste.
She may been a great skier, but it was her first time on a video camera - but hardly her last.
She took that skill, acquired in just four intensive days, and used it to compleltely change her life
Today she is Traveling Jules - and she goes all over the world making adventure and travel videos.
Next week she will be at the NAB, that's National Association of Broadcasters, where she will both be a speaker:
"I’m speaking on a special panel called “Win Friends and Inspire People: Personal Brands in the Social Media Era” alongside Meagan Keane from @Adobe, Jessica Meistadt from Girl Boss Habits, and Kayla Alexandria from Momentsmelanin.
If you are going to NAB, be sure to look her up. Here's the info and a discount code! Courtesy of Jules...
