1+Why: What frustrates you the most in our society – and why?

Four great responses came in for this week’s interview question, “What frustrates you the most in our society – and why?” “If I have to narrow it down, I would say: people who take so-called “moral” stances against things that have absolutely nothing at all to do with them and everything to do with suppressing, marginalizing, and/or punishing others.

1+Why: What Teacher Inspired You the Most – and why?

I loved reading the responses to last week’s question, inquiring to everyone what teacher inspired them the most.

Introducing my NEW Interview Series: 1 + Why

The EcoGrrl Interview: Susan

Susan Susan is one of the most interesting people I’ve met in a long time.  She is a software engineer who I hired last year for a former client, and through getting to know her, I’ve just loved how much she had to share, how she lives her life just how she wants, and hearing about the places she’s been,…
