  1. Hi Tina! I didn’t know quite how to bring this up but I think it’s important. It seems like Allison Sweet Grant And Adam Grant co-wrote the article you linked to, but only Adam’s name is used in the link pack and Allison is referred to as ‘his wife’.

    Although this is true, and I notice this language used quite commonly, it makes me curious as to why? Why is it our first instinct to refer to someone as the wife rather than using their name?

    Anyways, some food for thought on a Friday morning. Thank you for your work. I appreciate what you bring to the world.
