I’m going to share an abbreviated version of my story, and one of the reasons why SH has mattered to me — and in turn, I thought it might make for a general topic for discussion and sharing amongst the class. A few months ago, my position (professional, creative/design/editorial white collar) was eliminated after my employer did some company restructuring. In short, SH hasgiven me a platform to at least think creatively — and continually test it out every day — and give as many opportunities as I’d prefer to put my (allegedly) clever talent out there in the quest for $100 or more a pop. It often feels like a Quixotic quest when you get the “no thank yous” from CHs or the Marketplace, but even those help make your own efforts better, IMO.
So thank you SH folks throughout the company chain and @grant for helping me keep my brain and self-worth alive in a big way at a time when there isn’t much else out there on the internets providing the same.
