The Editor’s pick of videos by some awfully talented people. We Are Made to be Awesome Sometimes we just need a pep talk, even here at RedFence. Well, thanks to Kid President, Rainn Wilson (you know, Dwight from The Office), and a timely tweet by Zachary Levi (aka Chuck), we don’t need one anymore. Go […]
