Entrepreneur and author Gary Vaynerchuck said, “Being cool has nothing to do with age; it has to do with how solid your identity is.”

It could be a young child who knows what they like to do and then others follow them because they seem so sure.

It could be the high school students who survived the tragic Florida school shooting who are now speaking out and taking on the government.

It could be a senior citizen who runs community recreational events and gets their peers to join in.

The main factor is authenticity.  Knowing who you are and not being afraid to show it.  Realizing that no one is you and that is your power.  Understanding that what other people think of you is none of your business.

That is cool.  And epic.  And brave.  And inspirational.

We are all cool in our own way.  How can we show our true cool today?
