Episode 31 – What it Means to Be Unmistakably Creative w/ Srini Rao

Srini-RaoEvery once in awhile the best decision we can make in life is to take the scenic route. Sometimes the decision isn’t our own, but still a good decision none the less. Usually it is while taking the scenic route that we find pleasures that we would have never found if we were to stay on the straight and narrow path. In a sense, the journey brings fulfillment while the destination just becomes a by product of enjoying the ride. Today I have the honor of sitting down and talking with some who has embraced the scenic route and became it’s unofficial tour guide. Meet Srini Rao who is a surfer, a Wall Street Journal and Amazon best selling author, the show host of The Unmistakable Creative Podcast which receives over 10k downloads per episode, has been feature on TV and is a creative misfit.
