Greatness Adjacent is a peek inside the worlds of people who inspire me and have achieved success in what they do, no matter how unlikely the dream seems. I’m amazed by people all around me. I’m fascinated by origin stories. I want to hear about the journeys, the trails that were blazed or the paths that were stumbled upon. II love it all. The triumphs and the missteps, the twists and turns. Twists and turns are so good to hear about; people making magic out of real life is the stuff that rivets me.

Well, meet Katie. She does

She’s a treasured American painter who was always drawing as a child but never thought it could be a profession. Her story is such a good one. She shares how, first, Francis Bacon’s works then a quote by him, led her to her lightbulb moment.
