This article on Medium is inspiring to read. This book sounds interesting enough to buy. I’m looking forward to reading it. Some parts of this article, the author reminded me of the quote ingrained in me that “don’t compare yourself to others for there is, guarantee, always someone lesser or greater than you.” And “everyone of us dress up for the first interview. A resume is only a beginning of a real you professionally.”

“If you live in New York, Silicon Valley, or any other bubble of privilege, visit the middle of the country, and you’ll see that we all live in a different America.”

“If you come from a stable family, receive an education, or don’t have to worry about money, you have more privilege than you might realize. When you stop taking privilege for granted, it can become a catalyst for change.”

There’s more to all of us than we could express through bullet points on a resume. A resume is a one-dimensional view of your skills, gifts, and talents. A portfolio is a multidimensional view and insurance policy on the future of your career.”
