This is why journaling is such a game changer. It allows you to process your unconscious mind and lets you see how far you’ve come in your work and life.
I cannot talk about brand strategy if I am not vocal about how storytelling is weaponized to coral others into a false of community by manufacturing fake outrage and fear.
