“I saw it as the one defining principle of my life that kept me from achieving greatness.”

I occasionally receive an email that I think would be helpful to share with the community. I’m honestly a little nervous about sharing this one because, well, Mike says some really nice things about my work, and I don’t want this to come across as me posting a testimonial or bragging… I’m, of course, super appreciative for his kind words.

Mental illness is also one of those things that can really get in the way of pursuing your many passions. I thought it might be helpful to share my experience, as well as some of the strategies I use to manage […]

Is This The Biggest Multipotentialite Fear?
