Celebrating Differences

Ani Colt and Preston "Ty" Tyree

We are all different and each of us can learn a lot about ourselves by listening to others talk about who they are and how they created the person that we talk with. We do some special series to dig deeper into topics that intrigue us. We tend to keep and open mind so expect some of our content or guests to be different than what you are used to.

096 | I believe in the word "and". | April Obersteller
In this Episode, number 96, we had a chance to talk with the new Managing Director of woom USA, the US arm of what I believe is the best children’s bike manufacturer in the world. Full disclosure here, I am a part-time employee of woom, working with families to provide a powerful experience for children as they start a wonderful journey by bicycle. I was introduced to woom when a friend asked if I wanted to help at an outdoor event where we would be letting children ride bikes. I fell in love with the brand after seeing how it made the learning and riding experience so much better.So, yes, I’m biased but hopefully that didn’t keep us from having a good interview. Credits:– Video and audio production by Preston “Ty” Tyree– Music via Ben SoundResources used during the production of this video:– My recording platform is Ecamm Live– Editing software Final Cut Pro– Audio, Video and Production Equipment: Contact me for a complete listFor more information about the TOWER hour effort or other WAAO!
