“Hi Alex, I’m a journalist writing on behalf of The COLLECTIVE magazine – a monthly magazine published in 37 countries with a focus on inspiring entrepreneurs, startups, creatives and anyone doing anything a little differently… I am wondering if you’d be willing to offer us some insights…”
I’ve done about thirty odd interviews with musicians, tech founders and just overall interesting people in the last year. I do it because I love learning from people – what drives others to do what they do? People are infinitely fascinating if we take the time to recognize we’re all trying to find our place on this planet in our own unique ways. For me, it helps me recognize important concepts from other people’s perspectives and appreciate how different we all are. Receiving this e-mail was a really nice surprise. I’m glad I could share what I’ve learned to others outside of my own usual network.
Hopefully, I’ll get a few more opportunities to do this in the future. It’s definitely a great vote of confidence to keep writing more… to keep telling incredible stories, to push myself to explore, and to understand people from all walks of life around the world.
I’m extremely grateful.
