Soon after beginning an educational upgrade, Colleen Ryer realized that the stated benefits she'd been sold on weren't deliverable.The standard emphasis on what to think wasn't enough. A detour was in order. How to think has guided her from that turning point, and for over a decade now, she's traveled in independent learning directions. Along the way, Colleen has spied, unearthed - and tripped over - some surprising and incredibly useful insights. The productive nature of these different takes on common assumptions provokes an all-fired-up urge to keep on digging. She spends a lot of energy researching, writing and blogging, but finds time to chip away at her off grid transition and enjoy learning about life in her new home province of Nova Scotia, too.
