Last month’s freelance update served as a little bit of a reintroduction to who I am and what I do. In the future, I’ll talk about the work I’m doing for various clients, as well as reading I’m doing and […]
I’ve gotten pretty personal in my last few blogs — some would say, overly personal for a business blog. If the purpose is to find new clients, then what’s the point of talking so much about my own processes, insecurities, […]
If you’ve read my last few blogs, you know that I’ve been in a deep process of rethinking, well, just about everything: how I work, how I communicate, how I approach different things. Layoffs are among those earth-shattering life events […]
