Politics aside, I enjoyed reading this little vignette of you and Pete's life together as parents.
Politics aside, I enjoyed reading this little vignette of you and Pete's life together as parents. While my husband and I are newlyweds and we don't have kids, I do appreciate the mechanisms of marriage: the organization of the household, the sometimes crazy routines. You made it all seem calm in spite of the chaos. I really appreciate this.
Roz, I'm an editor as well and I have been through a very similar situation with a potential client.
Roz, I'm an editor as well and I have been through a very similar situation with a potential client. There are those out there who want all your time and attention, but they aren't willing to pay for it. When it comes the rate you charge, there seems to be "haggling" as if we're at a used car dealership. "My rate is my rate" is my saying. It's not to be disrespectful. But it establishes the relationship. You need a service and I provide that service. Therefore, you'll have to pay for said service. My time is valuable and you must be willing to pay for that time as well. I've never had a client hang up on me. That must have been dreadful! Thanks for sharing your experience!
Such a vulnerable piece here.
Such a vulnerable piece here. Thanks for sharing your experiences and really giving us all and idea of what you're going through. Despite all the bad in this world, it'll be hardest to leave the ones you love behind. Savor it all with each and every moment you have remaining.
I applaud you for writing about a topic that can be potentially triggering for some.
I applaud you for writing about a topic that can be potentially triggering for some. Writers need to tell their truth in every way that they can without fear of someone attacking them for their opinions. It's really hard for me as a Black person (and an editor) to justify…
Thanks so much for sharing this.
Thanks so much for sharing this. It really helps ground us entrepreneurs, founders, and owners as we go through that arduous journey of trying to become a great leader others. There are so many challenges. Not being an asshole is a challenge at times. It's refreshing to know that others are going through the same thing as well.
