Somewhere between dusk and dawn - a life around club music

BY MEGAN MANN
IN BERLIN

'Motivation Megan' rocked at the end of our Berlin Pecha Kucha for Haiti. When desperately asking around for presenters to jump in 3 days before the event was scheduled, it was her casual nonchalance and effortless promise to show some of her amazing photos that gave us organizers enough energy to pull it all through. A Guy Called Gerald-who Megan is working with-made some relaxing live music for Megan's photos from around the world.

Just Say Yes

BY MAVIS MCRAE
@ VOL 15 ON SEP 12, 2013

When Mavis McRae quit her government job in favor of freelance work, she knew she had to be open to new experiences and opportunities in order to be successful. Her willingness and flexibilty allowed her to travel around the world, teaching marketing and business in China, the Phillipines, and Vietnam. In the words of Ashton Kutcher, "opportunity looks a lot like hard work, while luck looks like stepping out of your comfort zone."
