Do you have employees? Then you know the feeling when one of them resigns and you didn’t see it coming. It happened to me recently and I wish I would have known about it earlier. Maybe I could have done something about it.
Know Your Company helps you find out how your employees feel about your business, the work, the culture, etc. You’ll be able to address issues before they turn into bigger problems. I will definitely give this a try! Thanks for pointing me to it, Jason!

I wish life came with a progress bar. An idea I discovered in this this thoughtful CreativeMornings/LA talk by Jocelyn K Glei.
Here’s a step ladder that you don’t have to hide away after use. It folds flat and you can hang it beautifully on a wall or on the side of a cabinet.
“Creative people are being asked to work on really important problems, problems that matter in the world, and the good news is we’re coming up with new-to-the-world solutions, and so it’s a really good time to be a designer.”
Speaking on the global theme of Freedom, David Kelley took the stage at CreativeMornings/New York in May 2014 to speak on the design revolution. Designers now have the respect and freedom to make a difference. Championing for design to be more inclusive in its meaning, David looks to give everyone confidence in their ability to be creative. Now that everyone has the power of creativity, what will you do with it?
We want to do well at school for an obvious reason: because – as we’re often told – it’s the primary route to doing well at life. But what’s the correlation?
