Fishing Cats & the Foolish Girl’s Guide to Success, TEDx [VIDEO]



Fishing cats hit the ski slopes last December when Mo had the honor of presenting at TEDx Vail Women. The opportunity raised a special challenge because the point of TEDx is to come up with a big idea that anyone could relate to regardless of interest in fishing cats or conservation.

The more Mo thought about it, the more she realized that a huge part of CAT in WATER’s existence lay rooted in the fact that we have no problem embracing a little foolishness when it comes to our dreams. And that’s something we encourage all of you to do. What do you think?




What good things has foolishness allowed you to do? Post in the comments below.
