Today’s Briefing: Quick Links


“It became my mission to make Student Maid a place where people had room to screw up and to figure things out on their own without having to worry about losing their jobs in the process. I figured that if I succeeded, it would be a win for all of us: Our students would gain problem-solving skills that would help them thrive not only in their jobs at Student Maid but also in their future pursuits; they would learn to trust themselves and become more independent; and they’d be able to take pride in their accomplishments. Even when they messed up, they’d learn something from it. Heck, if Lizzie could bounce back from a $40K mistake, I knew they all could bounce back from whatever screwups they made. In the end, I’d get a stronger, more reliable team (and much more relaxing vacations).”

–Kristen Hadeed, from “Permission To Screw Up” (Penguin, 2017).
