Simon Sinek on CreativeMornings/Podcast

Simon Sinek’s recent CreativeMornings talk just went live on our CreativeMornings Podcast. In his talk, Simon shares insights on millennials, technology, and the importance of empathy in good leadership. We flourish when we’re seen, when our work matters, and when we connect with and understand one another. And he asks: Are you willing to do the hard work of building meaningful relationships?

Happy International Womens Day

Celebrating International Womens Day by wearing all of the red I could find in my closet and by giving the ladies on my teams the day off to go volunteer, march or write postcards to our senators. But, most importantly, hopefully teaching my son T, to be a man who will respect and celebrate women.

As someone who gets seasick the thought of being on this boat gives me the shivers. But, what a stunning photograph!

WD-40 Hacks

I had never even heard of WD-40 before I moved to the U.S. Some of these 40 hacks are pretty impressive and made me realize it does’ more than just free rusted metal parts or stop things from making squeaky noises.

Write The Power

Writing a letter to Congress is one of the easiest ways to let your voice be heard by your political representatives both in the Senate & The House. Write the Power has made it uber easy to write your rep in just a few minutes with some pretty snazzy political postcards. Simply choose a card design from the political postcards collection, select the representatives you’d like to reach out to and type out your message. They will print and mail the post cards to Congress for you so your voice can be heard. 10% of the proceeds from each postcard will go to the ACLU to help support justice for all.
