Sabbaticals + Work | 208
This summer I took a whole month off my work and stepped away from all screens. (Spoiler: it was fantastic!) In this chat with Crystal, I get into both the professional and personal lessons I learned. Crystal is also self-employed (but in a different way), so she talks about the value of knowing yourself really well so you can focus on the right type of work for you. She’s learned a ton over the years what’s important to her, and thinks we can all benefit from thinking through this stuff.
