I want to make it ok for people, like myself, who have felt broken or shameful for doing many, many things and not following a linear path. I created More Than One Thing to share the honest stories of our roadblocks and how we navigate through them, in the hopes that it will incite creative journeys in others. It is our duty, when we break the mold, to reveal how we got here. The twists, turns, and the good and the bad. Getting lost was an essential part of the journey.
Well first I needed to define what I wanted to say, hone in on the questions I wanted to ask, and figure out how I wanted to share the narrative. I knew I wanted to find people to feature who were willing to pull back the curtain on their successful careers whose journeys appear seemingly perfect. Because, they are not. No one, if they are being truthful, has it all figured out. I wanted to highlight those multi-hyphenates who are open enough to share their grit. To reveal how each guest broke societal norms, found a way to climb outside that perfectly packaged box of expectations and found success in not just one thing, but many. I ask each guest to outline the many facets and hyphens in their career and personal journeys. I also ask them to share one major hurdle that they had to navigate and then the catalyst that allowed them to finally embrace who they were.
