My life is beautiful and aggressive, spontaneous and passionate, full of hard work, hard play and lots of cooking, volunteering and traveling. It’s not always perfect. In fact, things rarely go according to plan. But that’s probably because I do very little planning. Instead, I set out goals and I work toward achieving them. Most of what I do involves working with other people, and the goal becomes, “What can I do to help make their life (or situation, or work environment) better?”
I am an advocate of diversity—racial, cultural and gender—and of tackling life and everything in it from a global perspective.
I am also:
• An excellent cook. Cuisine is my second language. I have my favorite recipes, but love experimenting with new ingredients and creating new dishes.
• A writer. I write books and blogs that help others see the world in a new light. I think we all have secrets we feel we can’t share—conversations that are too difficult to start. I write books that help people smile and to freely, sometimes comically, embrace a new perspective about topics they thought were too complicated to explain.
• An editor. I patiently and strategically help others find their voice. Whether it’s micro-blogging 140 characters at a time, or finally delving into an important memoir, I believe that everyone has something to write. It's my pleasure to help them articulate it.
• An artist, and supporter of the arts I especially love collecting indigenous art. Some of my favorite pieces are nameless parchments, sculptures and earthenware from small communities around the world. But I’m also a huge fan of Egon Schiele (Austrian), Kara Walker (American), F. Widayanto (Indonesian) and Cheryl Warrick (American).
• A consultant I combine journalism and cultural anthropology to help businesses create better workplace and customer dynamics. My work takes me throughout the U.S. and around the world.
I am Georgia Scott and I look forward to working with you.
