Routine, Helpful Posts

Every 10 days or so you'll receive an email from me with something useful for your career. I don't send spam - every post will contain something for you to think about or use.

Happy To Have You!

I don't send out sales-y nonsense and you can always unsub! But part of me getting over Imposter Syndrome is to share what I learn, which is the point of this blog. Nothing is more fun then lively conversation with your peers, which is what I'm hoping to encourage.

Hope to see you!
