Welcome to Best of the Month, a monthly wrap-up of all our notable posts and favorite comments from readers like you. We love hearing your feedback. You can post your comments here on Bulletin, on Facebook, on Instagram, or on LinkedIn. Just this week I changed a caption in response to a reader's helpful note.
Your comments help us learn what you want to see more of and, most importantly, help us build a community. Transitions of all kinds are easier when we go through them together.
And speaking of together, I'll be spending the last week of summer with my family. The Nonlinear Life will return after Labor Day with a special series: Helping Families Transition to Fall. Please join me and share your ideas, questions, and tips!
