S3E23: Grace Bonney, Collective Wisdom & Design*Sponge

November 16, 2021 | 33 min listen

Broadening the circle of people that you listen to and pay attention to – in particular, people who are part of communities that have been marginalized by mainstream society – you learn different values systems and structures… The more that I try to expand that circle and listen and learn, the more I see that I have a choice to slow down.

Learn how relationships with people from different cultures and ways of life can have a profound impact on your values, happiness, and success as bestselling author Grace Bonney takes you through her new book, Collective Wisdom: Lessons, Inspiration, and Advice from Women Over 50, where she interviewed over 100 trailblazing women on their purpose, careers, activism, and community work. Hear Grace and host Danielle Holly discuss some of the biggest takeaways from the book, including the power of slowing down and the unique fulfillment of intergenerational relationships.
