One way to start small: Say you’re feeling overwhelmed by your page. Grab coffee with a friend and edit your profiles together.

and I started the online community because we wanted to provide a space for PhDs in transition to work through some difficult stuff. It's been really awesome to see the community grow, and to see our members supporting each other.
