  37. 37.  entrepreurship Communication in the workplace or other institutional setting plays a crucial part in how that organisation functions, and when things go wrong, they can go wrong in a big way. Planes can crash, patients can die, suspects can escape because of miscommunication. I want to help you eliminate these potentials for error. As a trained linguist and anthropologist, I can look at the way your organisation works, and offer suggestions and advice for improvements and alterations, to help you work better.

A moment when you made a decision, or had a realization, or an interaction that set you on a path, that motivated a journey.  For linguists, this could be how you discovered linguistics, or the reason you decided to become a linguist.  My stories: how I came to take my first class in linguistics, when I was told not to pursue the subject it at the graduate level because there were no jobs, how I convinced my employer to pay for my MA, my first job as a linguistic consultant, or my employment post PhD. Some thoughts about stories
