Their work as a volunteer phone counselor has been an introduction to counselling and a new possible career path.Stickam was a live-streaming video website that launched in 2005.
Going through the TELL phone counselor training program was a journey that often felt like it was learning a whole new language.
Although their day job is enjoyable, volunteering as a phone counselor continues to be fulfilling in a different way.
On November 7, 2012, Stickam officially launched its new Stickam Studio At Meltdown at Meltdown Comics on Sunset Blvd.
Stickam and Meltdown announced they had partnered to stream live shows from a new studio space in the store as well as from the store floor itself and from the Nerd Melt Theatre behind the store.
Bands that participated included Breathe Carolina, Mayday Parade, Of Mice and Men, and Pierce The Veil.
Stickam also provided live coverage of Warped 2011 through a deal with the band Gym Class Heroes streaming from every single tour date.
Stickam’s live video players came with built-in chat capabilities, allowing both text chat and optional video chat.
Stickam's player and live stream abilities are recognized in a Variety Magazine article as a "more customizable player" that has the ability to engage fans in a powerful way using their virtual face-to-face interaction.
In addition to streaming their live video on Stickam, the service allowed users to embed their streaming webcam feeds into other web sites via a Flash player.
