WATCH: Embracing Awkwardness (Video)

Why Give a Damn:
Because who hasn't felt anxiety about being awkward? And because Banks is the most adorably awkward dude in the Universe.

I have to be honest with you. As the brand new Editor in Chief of, I was feeling a lot of pressure about my very first "Editor's Pick." It felt like I needed to find something perfect in order to connect with the amazing Unreasonable community, more deeply.

Daniel Epstein, my CEO, kept saying, "Just pick something, it should take you 15 minutes." Tthe truth is Daniel does a lot of things in 15 minutes that would take most people much, much longer.) So, I've been laboring over this decision of what would be the perfect first Editor's Pick for a very long time.

And then we were having an Unreasonable Family dinner and someone suggested this video. Daniel agreed. Our very own, Banks Benitez talking about "Embracing Awkwardness" at Ignite Boulder is the perfect video to kick off our weekly Editor's Pick.

I hope you enjoy it!
