America's Love Affair with "Do It Yourself"
Monday, May 8, 2017

When you tackle a new project, do you consult Pinterest or YouTube for advice? Long-gone, it seems, are the days of "classic" mentorship. Rather, we watch videos, read self-help articles or wing it in order to get tasks accomplished – an approach known as "DIY" – "do it yourself." Today, we’re talking about the challenge of personal mentorship in the digital age. But first, a conversation about the proposed health care bill. Join us at 440-2665, and connect with us on Facebook and Twitter.
