“The search is what anyone would undertake if he were not sunk in the everydayness of his own life. To become aware of the possibility of the search is to be onto something. Not to be onto something is to be in despair.” -Walker Percy
Hi there, I’m Corey McComb and I am writer and marketing strategist living in San Diego, CA. I’m also a reader, thinker, and a slow-learner. A few years ago, I never thought I’d be writing this (or anything for that matter). In fact, my baseline of normal hovered around mediocre and aimless. I spent most of my time sunk in the everydayness of life, coloring inside the lines without passion or purpose.
I knew I wanted more—more meaning, more freedom—but like many others who feel stuck, I didn’t know where to start. I just knew that I wanted to be onto something…
Everything changed once I ignored the noise in my own head and started writing. I built my own platform (this site) and began sharing my ideas. Not just to help others, but to remind myself of the advice I need to follow.
I realized that in order to live an interesting life, first, you have to get interested. I made it my job to learn more, follow my curiosity, and share what I learned. Through sharing, I found creativity. Through creativity, I found reinvention.
Since I took the leap I’ve had some amazing adventures and been able to design a life I never thought possible. Somewhere along the way, I became a halfway decent storyteller.
If you’ve ever felt stuck or out of balance, I want to help you.
I’ve learned that once you start creating the life you’ve always wanted the highs are higher, but the lows that much lower—and the self-doubt that much stronger. Whether you’re trying to reinvent your baseline of normal, or struggling with the weight that comes with change—you have to find balance.
This site is about finding balance when life spins out of control. It’s about turning curiosity into creativity and finding more freedom in all areas of life.

What do you say? Are you ready to be onto something?
