What's the biggest mistake I've made? How do I get ideas? Will I retire?
Thanks for this! So many good takeaways. I'm definitely doing that Hugh Jackman idea and the one about asking my readers about their favorite reads. Also, this is pure gold: "For me, it’s about being obsessed with the details. A great idea typically masquerades as a question in a friend’s text message, a quote in a documentary, a line in a book, or an observation on a walk." Thanks again!
I just discovered “the profile” and have one big problem with your interview: it is filled with such a bounty of amazing information and insights, I don’t know where to begin. How do you organize your life when you’re overwhelmed with so many great choices?
Thanks for sharing your insights. It’s encouraging to hear your advice about consistency and time. Much appreciated!
So so so many good takeaways from this. Thank you for sharing so much. I’m excited to listen to those podcast episodes and take a look at more of your work. I’m already obsessed. Hahaha.

So great to read this - love that it led me to 10 new links/podcasts/books to pick up!
A profound respect Polina for sharing your creative journey!
I recently shared some of my own origin story in my monthly editorial. I also wrote about US 5Y5Y real-rates, the labour market, and Louboutin heels of course:
This was very interesting and informative, thank you. I marvel daily at how when walking or biking ideas just come to me - so it made me smile to read about you acknowledging the importance of that in your life. Also, I agree, biographies at the best!
Hi Polina, hope you are loving being a mum and I loved reading about you for a change! I love biographys but especially auto-biographies and I wonder if you've ever read "The Rainbow Comes And Goes" by Lady Diana Cooper? It's part of a trilogy and as she grew up in Britain's aristocracy just before the two World Wars, then married someone who her father totally disapproved of (but became Ambassador to France), it's a fascinating social commentary as well as a poignant reminder that her generation lost so many of their most talented young men. Think Downton Abbey told from the point of view of just one sister. And, even better, as I say, it's a trilogy! Then there's a book of letters to her beloved son to follow. Here's the UK link but you'll be able to click through to the US site. https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B08R5H66TM?ref_=dbs_p_mng_rwt_ser_shvlr&storeType=ebooks
