Aha Moment

So back in June I received this comment on my blog:

Hi Brooke,

I work for the company that produces Mutual of Omaha’s “Aha Moment” campaign; visit to see what an aha moment is and the incredible stories we’ve filmed over the last two years. As I came across your website, I couldn’t help but think that you might have an aha moment to share.

We’re taking our 34-foot Airstream mobile film studio to 25 cities to capture inspirational, life-changing aha moments from folks all over the country. We are headed to Davenport, IA on August 4th and 5th, and would love to invite you to share an aha moment! You would just have to step into the Airstream studio for a few minutes and tell your story on film to our tour manager. Your video will then be posted to, where you will be able to share it with your friends and family via email, Facebook and Twitter!

For the second year in a row, our tour manager is Jessica Henry. Hailing from Athens, GA, Jessica is an outdoor enthusiast and self-proclaimed “foodie” who enjoys talking about powerful life moments with people just like you all over the country. You can read Jessica’s bio (and meet the rest of the crew) at

We will be parked at Putnam Museum at 1717 West 12th Street, on August 4th and 5th from 11am to 7pm.

Let me know as soon as possible and I can reserve some time for you.

Many thanks!

Olivia Lasky

Well, tomorrow I get to record my Aha Moment! I’m pretty excited about it, but pretty nervous too. I haven’t prepared anything, so I’ll guess I’ll be winging it. Or working on something tonight at work.

As soon as I know all the details of when it will be available for viewing, I will be sure to let you all know!

What was your “Aha Moment”?
