Listen Up: Good Jeans and a Card Expert on How to Nail Empathy in 2017
Welcome, 2017! Took ya long enough to get here. To celebrate the arrival of a fresh, brand-spanking-new year, we’re tackling two tricky topics: shopping for denim and what to do when someone you love gets terrible news. That second bit comes with some very official advice from Emily McDowell, creator of empathy cards (which you can conveniently buy on Of a Kind) and co-author of a new book on the topic. Onwards and upwards, right?
