Tidbit Tuesday . . . Postcard Moments and Planned Happenchance - Creative Innovators with Gigi Johnson

Episode 23

Tidbit Tuesday . . . Postcard Moments and Planned Happenchance

This was fun.  Your host, Gigi Johnson, has been speaking for college classes this past week and kept being asked to tell her/my story of the pivot points and non-linear decisions over 9 careers.

So in this Tuesday Tidbit segment, I share the story of how I changed into a film major at USC based on postcard from my teaching assistant for a single class.  That changed my life and direction and those changes echo through my choices to this day.

What postcards have you gotten in your life -- or elements that nudged you to turn left or right?  Do you see them?  Do you send them?
