Newsletter: August 20, 2019

Hi folks,

So, I’m about to embark on a journey across the USA to connect with & interview as many interesting people as possible.

I will be doing this through a new venture of mine, From The Path Less Traveled Productions (

From the Path Less Traveled Productions was founded to provide motivation, support, and useful information to people on — or to those considering taking — unconventional & challenging paths in life.

FTPLT’s goal is to highlight the stories of interesting & tenacious individuals who’ve chosen unconventional paths, experienced uncommon things, or who have been subject to difficult or unusual conditions or circumstances on their journey in life and to provide a platform to share the valuable lessons they’ve learned along the way.

FTPLT Production’s first project is a collaborative internet-based video documentary/podcast hybrid composed of video (and audio) interviews accompanied by still image portraits and supplemental video.

Now seeking…

If you’ve struggled at times and have learned valuable lessons as a result, I’d love to talk to you (whether you consider yourself successful or not). Because the fact is, the struggles of our lives often provide far more valuable lessons than our successes ever do. I want to help you share your story and the things you’ve learned along the way. — Zero Dean
