Working Through Your Path and Passions

Sometimes, it takes a few attempts to figure out which passion path you should be following in life. You may have multiple interests, but not all of them point toward a fruitful future.

Personally, I bounced around between dreams of being a football coach, personal trainer, tattoo artist, clothing brand owner, and logo designer. I had to spend a little time in each one of these dreams until I found the path in which I truly wanted to dedicate my time.

I know I'm not alone in feeling anxious and afraid about today's inauguration. But it's more important now than ever to speak up loudly, to act with conviction and kindness, and to hold our leaders accountable. We cannot be afraid to speak out against the hatred and misinformation spread by the incoming president. Words are not just words, especially when the person speaking has the power to enact them into policy. Jokes are not just jokes when laughing off sexual assault or mocking disability. And vile discrimination has no place in our homes, in our lives, in the White House. Empowering though it absolutely is to see so many peers and politicians speak up about the problems our nation is facing, we still have tremendous work to do, and we cannot afford to become complacent. Stay safe out there this weekend, be kind to one another and raise hell. Quote from Congressman and Civil Rights veteran John Lewis.

Owning Your Story and Style with Kyle Letendre

Queue today’s guest, Kyle Letendre aka @HeyKyle, a groovy magician who casts spellbinding expressive lettering and illustrations for some of the biggest kids on the block like Instagram, Jack White, and McDonald’s.

In addition, he gives talks, teaches workshops, and slangs some pretty beautiful merch…basically, I’m saying he does it all and does it extremely well.

Today, Kyle and chop it up over tantalizing topics such as:

  • The weird and winding road to lettering and illustration
  • The risky leap to full-time freelance
  • Owning your story and what makes you you
  • How his name doesn’t sound like it’s spelled and obviously his favorite pizza

Let me know what you think. Take a screenshot of the podcast episode you’re listening to and tag me on IG @perspectivepodcast or on Twitter, and let’s connect.
