How to Write a Resume When Yours Doesn’t Make Sense

I’m comforted that I’m not alone in this hatred for resumes. I’ve heard many multipotentialites complain that it’s a tremendous point of pain for […]

During our multipotentialite mixer the other day, someone asked me if I thought they needed to make videos for their website when they prefer writing blog posts. They had noticed that with their audience, videos perform better and get more traction than written content. We chatted back and forth. I had some thoughts about how […]

2018 is Nearly Here! Looking Back & Looking Forward

Well multipotentialites, we’ve reached the end of another interesting year. That can only mean one thing: it’s time to publish one of my informal annual reviews/goal setting posts! 2017: The “Year of Rest”?
