A lot of conventional career advice doesn’t work for us, and trying to follow it can make us miserable. Over the years, Emilie’s shared plenty of ideas about how multipotentialites might go about finding the right career(s) or […]

Do You Plan, Ruminate, Worry, Poke, Prod, and Fumble? How to Stop Overanalyzing Your Projects

I’ve been planning to write this post for approximately seven years. Every possible paragraph has been carefully researched. Each of my thoughts has been passed by a number of focus groups.
