Sources of pride
Getting grad degree, paying off loans
Moving to NYC (twice)
Buying a scooter and learning to ride it
Writing and self publishing a book, with podcast, and audiobook
Having difficult conversations with family
Closing a deserved promotion, helping close a funding round as a cofounder
Quitting a paying role to write fiction, then completing a novel
Sources of anxiety
What if I can’t pay bills? What if I never have kids? What if I mess up and have no more friends?
Bold future dreams
Live in a brownstone with an equal partner boyfriend and baby and have a multi-book deal
