On a whim, I picked up the audiobook of Julia Child's memoir My Life in France recently. While I was just looking for a nice, engrossing, entertaining listen during commutes, I found myself thinking that I could really learn a lot from Julia Child - and not just as a cook. Her life is amazing (did you know that she was in the government agency that later became the CIA?) and her writing is full of tidbits that can be used as life lessons. I found that some of her philosophies can even be lessons for community managers.
