    Book Flight: Magic to Make You Think Differently (E67)

    Book Flight: Magic to Make You Think Differently (E67)

    We chatted all about starting with a really good question to start
    determining where to start, writing being a team sport and what she has
    learned about life through moving a lot in her childhood. She also shared
    how reading and writing do not occur in a vacuum and how our life
    contributes. I love her book flight of “digestible books” that leave you
    with an aha moment and how she refers to books as interesting currency in
    conversation.
