Writer and illustrator Hallie Bateman gives the best advice. On her Instagram feed, she often shares wise words scrawled on torn pieces of paper – things like “Invite everyone” and “There are many kinds of beauty, and your kind is one of them!” I’m always impressed with what she says and feel more grounded after reading it. Fortunately, this week she published a book of her thoughts: Instructions: Really good advice on getting from here to there.
Now I’m curious too: what random talents do you have? I can talk to young children easily and I always know what time it is.
PS The best career advice and parenting advice I’ve ever been given.
