Moments, Things I Hope My Kids Will Read One Day

KelbyOne—an Ecosystem of Opportunity—I Like That About Us

December 1, 2017

You’ll have to bear with me a minute here because I’m so excited and happy that I just want to say it, to share it. The woman above is Melanie Kern-Favilla. You may recognize her as a Gallery at KelbyOne winner. Melanie is a fantastic photographer, KelbyOne member, and train engineer. Melanie will also soon be a KelbyOne instructor, and we can’t wait. There are many reasons for us/me to be excited about this but let me explain why I’m particularly excited.

You see, Melanie (and what Melanie represents in this case) makes me happy because she is the result of our ecosystem of opportunity. That ecosystem changed the question for our business from “How do we accomplish more?” to “How can we help our members accomplish more?” And that is a question that is fun to answer every day. For Melanie that meant we opened a door and she walked through it. By entering her images in our gallery contest not only did she win the competition but now a worldwide audience knows her name and her work. She’s been featured on the cover of our magazine, “Photoshop User” which led members from all over the world to ask for Melanie to share her techniques on KelbyOne. Full circle—I love it!

Do you want to know the best part about all of this? She’s not alone—not by a long shot. A few others that have had similar experiences (that include speaking at our national conference Photoshop World) are Steve HansonKaylee Greer, and Dave Clayton.  My hope, my joy, my excitement about the future are the names of those members that will be added to this list. KelbyOne is a business, yes, but it is also our life’s work and our passion, and it makes us happy when it works like this. Thank you for letting me share.

Have a great weekend everyone!

My awesome husband, Scott Kelby, has put together a wrap up post for our annual convention Photoshop World! If you have a chance click the link http://scottkelby.com/highlights-photoshop-world-2017-conference/ and check it out — a true labor of love for us and everyone at KelbyOne. I had such a great time meeting and talking to everyone that I, literally, lost my voice. Hahaha!

Have a terrific Monday and get some rest. Wait. What?. 😉
