Amanda Palmer is an American performer and has both a solo career and various other acts she’s associated with. Although some of the experiences she shared during the talk seem a bit extreme for my taste, her point is important and, in my opinion, can be translated into other entertainment areas (for example, the film industry). It’s an inspiring and motivating talk that above all concentrates on the importance of communication. Palmer reminds one not to get estranged from the people one has met and who have shown their support, especially after you ‘make it’. Instead she encourages fostering good long-term relationships. Anyhow, she obviously explains it better, so check it out!
