Our Team’s Top Tune-Ins: TED Talks and More


Truth is: I’m a bit of an internet junkie. I enjoy relaxing at the end of the day by submerging myself into YouTube. I find lots of great material there from old Seinfeld favorites to silly memes and inspirational TEDTalks. Some of the videos I gravitate to most are personal and professional development topics.


I share some of my finds with my team at work and they share with me. It’s a fun, collaborative way to bring new thoughts, ideas and some laughs to the office.


Today, I want to share a few professional development favorites from some of us here at SterlingFreeman.
