I hope everyone is having a good weekend. This is a quick sources-for-stories post. I’m looking for people who’ve done sabbaticals (or are in the process of planning them right now) and people who have been involved in crafting the sabbatical strategy for a company/organization that offers them. Is there a way to make the most of that time? What do organizations hope to get out of it, and does it work? This would most likely be for my Fast Company gig.
I’m also — on a completely different note, and for a different publication — writing about a different angle on food: the idea of hunting/catching your own. There’s a lot of small scale agriculture going on these days with backyard chickens and little farms but I’m exploring the meat side of opting out of the industrial food chain. I’d love to talk to people who hunt and consume what they hunt.
Thanks! As always, you can write to me at lvanderkam at yahoo dot com.
