One of the great lessons I learned from my mom is to go try new things. She used to often say, “Just go try it. You have nothing to lose. You’ll learn something, and you can use that later on.”
Such a great attitude. My work today is really the combination of many, many little moments where I tried something, learned something, and determined if I ever wanted to use it again. As you assemble bits of learning here and there, you now have more than you can assemble into a meaningful package of value to offer to other people.
