If you’ve had the joys of a long weekend—we salute you and hope that you stayed bundled up on your couch under many layers of blankets! Today it’s back to braving the cold and dragging yourself to the office, your creative project, your freelance gig, or your job search. To support you from afar, we have some inspiring advice for Entrepreneurs for you to Read alongside an article explaining why it sometimes takes us 10 days to do something that takes 10 minutes (we’re wiser now!). Under Go, we’re seeing you discussing Blackness and Modernism or taking in a free concert at Symphony Space this weekend. And if new year means new job, there’s plenty of opportunities (including for the full-time employed arts professional) under Apply!
