Season 1, Episode 1

Wild Things & Mavericks

With Aiden Carroll

In the very first episode of Modern Day Rebels I am joined by the amazing Aiden Carroll, founder of The Coloring In Department and digital education wizard.

Aiden was practically born a rebel, raised on lateral thinking and grew into a maverick not afraid to get in over his head.

An early experience saw Aiden’s career trajectory change after being challenged on his belt choice one day, and he knew in that moment he wasn’t made to toe the line.

Through fearless career experimentation he’s carved out a unique path that saw him leading the social media campaign for Team GB during the 2012 Olympics and heading up a global project at Google.

The desire for freedom and flexibility has always been imperative to Aiden, so in launching The Coloring In Department he has curated his working world to be, happy, healthy and unshakeably honest.

“It’s always about freedom with me. A freedom to think, freedom to work, freedom of space, freedom of schedule, add freedom in front of pretty much anything and it adds a little bit more value to it.”

Learnings

  1. Take the path less travelled. You’ll enjoy it more and be all the better for it.
  2. Through a commitment to live honestly and transparently, Aiden is unapologetically himself. He applies honesty to his working relationships, by not playing to the perceived “rules” he’s found a voice and style that has set himself aside from others.
  3. Trust that you know the best what’s best for you and follow that intuition.
