    Greetings Belle – Thanks for posting the Medium article. I’ve stopped subscribing to some career sites that make me think that if I haven’t attained total job nirvana within 6 months, I need to find another one. I realize that pursuing your professional potential may require a job change, but having done my share of recruiting, a lot of job hopping on a resume can raise a lot of questions. Having gone to bed at 1:00 a.m. last night, my side hustle is finding more time to nap . . .
