Find a job you enjoy. Work hard. Be flexible. Be willing to give a little. Just shape yourself to fit. These, we’re told, are all keys to success. Do enough of what others want us to do, in the way they want, and we’ll earn the right to do what we want before we die. But, what if that’s all bassackward? What if truly bringing yourself to the world, offering what you uniquely have to give, and building your life, career, and relationships through a lens of knowing who you truly are was the key? Could you build a sustainable, identity centered life? Let’s find out.

Hi, I’m your host Mark R. Morris Jr, a father of eight, serial entrepreneur, bestselling author, composer, designer, and playwright. I’m not sure if I’m a renaissance man, or my ADD won’t let me pick just one. Either way, I’ve led an interesting life, full of struggles and celebrations, trying to make myself fit into this crazy, upside-down

world. But, I finally decided it was time to pitch the expectations of others, the “rules” and the system for success we’re all taught, right out the window. Now, I’m on a journey to figure out who I am and who I would be if I’d done this sooner. Curious? It’s sure to be interesting. Try an episode or two on for size. I think you’ll find that you too know there has to be a better way.
