Hey beautiful people,
Welcome to the new ericawilliams.com. I launched the site for two big reasons:
1. Everyone told me I needed to.
Apparently, I write and speak on so many topics in so many places all over the internet - personal growth, politics, youth culture, identity, digital media, etc. - that I needed to put it all in one place to make it easy for you to find. So from here on out, you'll be able to come here to see everything that I create, host, write, and everyplace that I go. Promise.
2. I needed to be clear about why I do the work that I do.
I wanted to make it clear to all of the people that reach out to me every day to write, lead a workshop, be a guest on their show, speak at their event, answer an email for advice or just chat, what my work is really all about: Having important conversations that are relevant to "the #newevery1". The #newevery1 is a name coined by the legendary journalist Danyel Smith and in my own words, I define it as a diverse, tech-savvy, smart, culturally aware, creative generation of dreamers and doers. In other words: my people. That's what my brand Life Support is all about. It's not just a title for my content or the name of my upcoming book or event series.
It's a way of life that involves each of us sharing what we've learned, respecting our cultures and intelligence, and helping each other thrive in this thing called life - and do it in a way that could actually make the world better.
So stay tuned for more info that will explain the Life Support brand and invite you into the conversation that I've already been having on campuses, in corporations, and online with thousands of people for the past 2 years.
The site is a work in progress, but hopefully, it's a good way for you to find out more about me and make it clear exactly how much I want to get to know you - work with you, learn from you, support you.
