On Tuesday, I had the privilege to interview the writer Helen Russell while she was in London to promote her latest book, Leap Year, a guide to making big decisions, becoming more resilient and making changes in your life. I’d previously read her first title, The Year of Living Danishly, and loved her willingness to take on the challenge of try to live one’s best life while retaining a self-deprecating and not-too-earnest British perspective on the world. Although I was nervous as this is the first interview I’ve conducted, chatting to her about the book and her adventures in facing change and developing resilience was a lot of fun as well as being insightful. Come, pull up a chair next to us at breakfast in a busy hotel dining room and share our conversation…
