When you’re already juggling a dozen projects, how do you make space and time for something new – especially if you have no idea how it’s done? That’s the dilemma author, podcaster, business owner, designer, and all-around renaissance woman, Christine Koh, found herself facing when she decided to add “getting bylines in major publications” to her repertoire. There was just one problem: Christine didn’t actually know how to do that. But by getting intentional about her goal and reaching out to her network for help, she quickly added “published in the Boston Globe, CNN, and The Washington Post” to her already-illustrious bio. In this episode of Mother of Reinvention, Christine and I discuss her many career pivots and projects, her recent decision to reclaim the “Dr.” in her title, why taking chances pays off, why it’s so important to reach out to your community for help, and more.
