As a self-proclaimed, curiosity-driven investigative journalist, I ask the unusual questions that uncover the unexpected stories behind what truly makes people uniquely successful.
The most successful people aren't defined by what makes them similar, but rather by what makes them different. That’s Unusual reveals the untold secrets, habits and tips from the world’s greatest minds, inventors, innovators, and influencers that makes them stand out from a world of averages.
