What I Learned From My 5-Year Old Niece
“A 7 year old did this, so you should be able to figure it out, too.” That’s what the line said. The words were sitting in my inbox, so I could do a double take and confirm what I had just read. Yes, I read it correctly. My immediate reaction – what kind of s#!t […]
Here’s How to Get Your Idea Out There
You know that unsettled feeling that comes along with the niggle in your brain that you have to get it done. It’s the decision that needs to be made.
