A great read, Michelle! It makes me wonder what the generational gap for risk aversion between ours and the upcoming ones will be. I love the tweet and convo screenshots, lol.

This was a fun read. I've heard a ton of my friends share similar experiences. Personally, maybe I'm the oddball. My folks encouraged me to take risks - perhaps less so now ๐Ÿ˜‚. Also on a sidenote, I need to figure out the secret behind Michelle's wildfire comment section in substack.

This was a great read and I love your parents! I didnโ€™t tell my mom I quit my job for months because I didnโ€™t want her to worry!

Michelle, I love the line "pathless path" and your story resonates with me. I'm on the pathless path with you too. I love how you write about your parents.

Great reflections Michelle! The cycle you mention on risk taking by our parents is so true and accurate. And you always make laugh, that text exchange with your mom is hilarious ๐Ÿ˜‚
