Paid Post | What is this?


The Texas Optimism Project is a sponsored partnership between Texas Monthly and Frost Bank’s Opt for Optimism initiative. The project aims to explore optimism through storytelling. Since June 2018, the Texas Optimism Project has interviewed dozens of Texans about the power of perspective.

Throughout 2019, the project will continue to explore optimism through an advice column, live discussions at university campuses, a brand new feel-good podcast, Good Newscast, and more!
