Freelance writer, New York Times contributor, and talented journalist, Kristin Wong, delves into why we do the things we do.
Since Kristin Wong was six years old, she’s been writing—to be understood, to tell a story, or sometimes to figure things out on her own. Kristin shares how she moved to L.A. to pursue a career in screenwriting, but ultimately left to pursue a path that was truer to herself. Her chosen path has led to opportunities she never imagined, such as getting a book deal and publishing her book Get Money: Live the Life You Want, Not Just the Life You Can Afford.
We talk about the pros and cons of being well-prepared versus being more willing to try things out. We also get vulnerable about dealing with imposter syndrome and share a pretty hilarious moment about each of our perspectives on each other’s polished-ness.
Kristin’s journalism chops definitely added a fun element to the conversation because she did a great job of asking me about as many questions as I asked her. This episode is one that will provide some interesting reflection and inspiration for better enjoying this process we call life.
