  1. Thanks for passing this video along. It definitely is a “must see”.

    • I already loved her books. Being a writer of fantasy adventures myself, I have looked up to her as a mentor. And now with this amazing speech, I am in total awe of Ms. JK Rowling. Well done!

      • I have not really gotten into her books, but I watch her and admire her as an entrepreneur and business person…

      • I think her books are a matter of taste. Not everyone likes what she presents, that is for sure. But her business acumen rates right at the top. She is smart lady.

  2. I just love everything about her
    Thanks for reblogging 😉
