Origin Stories and Origin Stori

John MierauEarlier in the month I had the distinct pleasure of sitting down to chat about all things Creative Adjacent with John Mierau. (Wait, stop right here. If you’re not yet familiar with John Mierau and his stories, then you are in for a treat when you’re done reading this post. Once you are, head over to ServingWorlds.com and absorb all the great, cool, fun stuff he’s putting out in to the world.)

We talked about how Creatives and Creative Adjacents can work together to help put more cool stuff out into the universe. We talked about the idea that everyone is, crammed into their one meat suit, both Creative and Adjacent, and sometimes it is more about one than the other. Yes, even with me, who thinks of myself as “non-Creative” and is perfectly happy about that.  We are all both entertainers and managers; all some amount of introvert and some amount of extrovert. I’m not saying Scott Sigler and I are much the same — I’m saying we’re complimentary in a useful and beneficial way!

An aside: the first interaction I had with John (which he doesn’t know I am talking about here and now) was quite a bit rough around the edges. Not to put too fine a point on things, but it was what I might envision when a born and bred Canadian meets a dyed in the wool New Yorker. Let’s just be clear: I did not acquit my self admirably. John did, as you already knew, but I was abrupt and sassy, albiet unintentionally.

And just like you’ll hear in this interview, John was sublimely professional, dedicated and astute — working hard to realize his goal, and illuminate our attributes, no matter that I was somewhat limited and shorter sighted.

It’s a grace and a pleasure to talk with John, second only to listening to John spin stories.  I’m lucky and grateful and hope you enjoy it! And, as John launches Origin Stori, I’m not the only one!

Honestly , don’t miss Origin Stori. You’ll regret it if you do.
