Daring to be Different (ft. Amy Choi) | Ep. 51

One of the core tenets of Educated Guess is "Accessibility". For us, this means that people (at any age) should have the opportunity to shadow and learn as much as possible about a career they are interested in. And, ultimately, we believe that this mode of thinking will lead to more "pluralists" in today's society. The term "pluralist" for us has gotten a bad rap over the years. Unfortunately, having more than one interest can be a slippery slope towards being perceived as a "jack of all trades". 

However, even if our interests, skills, and background tend to look more like a paper machete, we find it incredibly powerful to acknowledge this as a good thing instead of a setback. That said, for this episode, we're joined by Amy Choi someone who has a pulse on the power of being multifaceted.

A few years ago, Amy Choi and Rebecca Lehrer founded MashUp Americans where they produce The Mash-Up Americans podcast and curate stories in a weekly newsletter. While seemingly operating under a normal blog to business model, what makes Amy and Rebecca unique is their ability to focus especially on the grey area (Mash-Up) between culturally relevant stories. And, with a background in journalism, they now help select clients create and distribute content that speaks to "Mash-Up America" in an authentic, meaningful way. You can learn more about our client work here

So,  about an hour, we spend time walking through the following questions and topics:

  • "The Tanning of America"
  • Finding a Business Model as a Journalist
  • Pharrell's concept of being a pluralist
  • The hidden risks of not seeing color
