Cool People Doing Cool Things is a collective platform for the stories that need to be heard - the people out there, just like you and I, who are busting a gut to make shit happen.

WHAT IS COOL?

Cool isn't just the latest kicks or the amount of Instagram followers you have. Cool can be working three jobs to stay afloat while you pursue your passion. It's crawling into bed covered in coffee grind, only to wake up and do it all again, just to afford that coveted domain name.

It's Jerry Seinfield's joggers and jeans. It's socks and sandals. It's leopard print and hologram, together.

Cool is exuding inner confidence, not giving two hoots about what people say.

It's owning yourself. Letting that freak flag fly.

WHO WRITES THIS STUFF?

My name is Amy and I’m a writer. It took me a long time to say that. I can’t really remember when it happened, but one day I just decided to call myself a writer and be cool with it. I decided to not feel like a fraud, just because I wasn’t yet being paid for what I was doing. I truly believe that if you’re doing what you love with passion, kindness and integrity, money will follow. Check back in with me in ten years and I’ll let you know how that’s going. *wipes the sweat off her brow*

This is a creative project for you and for me. I'm figuring out how to use my words to heal the world, for social change, and for the greater good. If one single person reads one of these stories and feels happy, inspired and uplifted, mission accomplished.

Change starts from within. Let's do cool shit together.
