Nov 29, 2021

Back by popular demand! We can’t—and we shouldn’t!—do everything. So we’re sharing 10 specific things we DON’T do anymore. This isn’t about copying our lists of don't do's—it’s about identifying the things you can take off your plate so you can do more of the things that light you up!
