Whatever else you can say about 2018, it certainly wasn’t boring. At Thrive Global, we’ve focused on sharing the stories that keep us engaged — with current events, technology, our jobs, our relationships, and with ourselves — and still thriving. Here are 10 of my favorite Thrive Global reads, covering topics ranging from Elon Musk, Anthony Bourdain, and “A Star is Born” to the profound shift in our relationship with technology and how to channel our outrage into meaningful change. Happy holidays to all and thanks for being a part of our community. Here’s to thriving in 2019!
