Let's Tell Your Hey Eleanor Story

When I started Hey Eleanor last year, I was focused on personal growth. It didn't take very long for me to realize this project was a lot bigger than me. 

As it turns out, most of us are afraid of a lot of things.

We are all in this together.


Anyhow, last week I met with my buddy, Matt. He's kind of a big deal on the Internet. He pitched a very cool, Hey Eleanor-inspired video idea. And long story short, we're making a video series. 

But here's the thing: we need your help.

I don't want to give too much away, but these videos won't just be about me. It'll be about me and you. Intrigued? Here's what we're looking for:

  • People in the greater Twin Cities area (sorry, out-of-towners!) looking to conquer a fear or simply try something for the first time.
  • Willingness to be filmed for a day or two in the next three months.

Whether it's making croissants from scratch, driving a manual transmission, singing in public, driving on a frozen lake, holding a snake or trying a new sport (Aerial yoga? Pickle ball? Ice frisbee golf?), we want to document you as you tackle that new thing. If you're scared, I will hold your hand. Figuratively, or maybe literally if you need it. 

Pitch us your idea at heyeleanorproject@gmail.com by Friday, December 5. Please include a short description of what you want to do, why you want to do it & your phone number.

Feel free to get weird with your idea... or really mundane. We're listening.
