Highlights from the "Be Fabulous with lynda.com" AIGA event at
the Brooks Institute of Photography in Ventura, CA, June 25.

Last Thursday, June 25, at the Brooks Institute of Photography campus in Ventura, Lynda Weinman and Bruce Heavin gave the talk “be fabulous with lynda.com” at the request of the local chapter of AIGA. There were many AIGA members from Ventura and Santa Barbara County in attendance, as well as a great showing of lynda.com staff. During the evening we heard the story of how Lynda and Bruce met, how lynda.com was formed, Lynda’s beef with the See’s Candy lady, and how passion, hard work and persistence really do pay off.

It was an inspiring and heart-warming event! Wish you all could have been there!
