Hi, reader!

This is a quick email to let you know about a conversation I recently had with my friend Karl Craig-West. He runs a great podcast called Smashing Self-Employment - even if you aren't self-employed, I reckon you'll love the conversations he has with his guests.

Choosing between the extremes In business, we are so often told that we have to …

Why A Fellow Traveller is More Powerful Than Empathy

Empathy is wonderful, but what's even more powerful is connecting with a fellow traveller. I learned that from talking to my cousin The picture by the title is a throwback to 2017 when I met up with my cousin Brigette who lives in The Netherlands.
