I like the JD Salinger quotes. No wonder his books are the first ‘relatable’ classic books I’ve ever read.

John, this might be the pinnacle of my writing journey - to be featured in a piece of yours, alongside Haley. My chair at the “worthy table” feels a bit awkward.

I’m so grateful for you and the mentor and partner you are to so many. And your writing is such a natural expression of your warmth. Keep up letting your unique insides meet up with the world on the outside. We all benefit. 🙏

John this was such a treat! I love interviews in written form. I had a good laugh reading that Nik thinks he is no longer employable which secretly is something that I strive for. I also really appreciate that he advocates for not niching down too soon. I have this voice inside of me, driven by expectations, that tells me to niche down every day. It’s nice to hear a voice in opposition of what seems to be pushed right now - “find something you’re an expert in and niche down to claim your seat at the table”.

I really enjoyed this and I was happy to see your name in my inbox again. And thank you so much for sharing my work, it means so much 💛
