this is how you speak about yourself when invited and how you use it to motivate others, thanks!

Perhaps just should be more engaging and sharing of these things outside the podium on the mingling

Evan is obviously comfortable on stage, and he knows how to deliver a punchline. The advice (nurishing your side projects) is simple and with his success story easy to understand.
I do feel, however, that the massive success at a very young age kind of undermines the message as well, because everything you do at that age is a 'side project'. I got a certain 'but that's not me' feeling that took away a little bit of the inspiration that belongs in a keynote...
