Use the Side Door

April 21, 2021

Tarrus Richardson recently participated in a Vlog with Jordan Selleck from 51 Labs and shared some insightful lessons. Here is a small excerpt:

I know what it’s like to not be invited into the room.
As a matter of fact, that feeling taught me one of the most important lessons:
Never be afraid to take the side door.

Growing up in heavily segregated Chicago,
navigating graduate school at Harvard…

I know what it’s like to inhabit spaces that weren’t built with me in mind.

But it’s taught me to get CREATIVE,
find a DIFFERENT way in…

Find the side door.

Knowing how to do that will not only get you where you want to go,
but it might just help you stand out along the way.


Thanks @Jordan Selleck for putting this together.
