Rethinking Unpopular

***Erika's talk was recently featured by the TEDx organization as their "Talk of the Week". We're humbled that they saw why we chose her as part of this year's speaker lineup. "Have you ever been afraid of what people might think of a decision you're about to make? A decision that could potentially make you very unpopular with certain people." That line rings true with every one of us. Erika Napoletano's no stranger to being unpopular, though. In fact, she celebrates it. As a speaker, author, columnist, and professional devil's advocate, Erika's spent her life figuring out how to use her unpopularity an asset. Join her for a rollicking journey through what being "unpopular" means to her. A tale told through polar bears, Sarah Palin, purple skirts, and pie charts, you'll never look at "unpopular" the same way again. Erika Napoletano lives in Boulder, Colorado and is the Head Redhead at RHW Media, a brand strategy firm that helps people and businesses get UNstuck and over those annoying problems that keep them from being awesome. She's been hailed by Forbes as a "spinless spin doctor" for her BS-free perspectives on business, marketing, branding, and life in general. Erika is also a twice-published author, including The Power of Unpopular (Wiley 2012), a columnist for both Entrepreneur Magazine and OPEN Forum, and speaks at events across the U.S. on the inherent power of truth in business... or as she refers to it, the power of unpopularity.
