Reminders of Growth


In Episode 86, Jason Blumer and Greg Kyte repeat a tradition by hosting their summer book club. Hear about the books they have loved (or not) and how they have implemented some of the ideas into their own lives. Jason’s 2 books were Pricing Creativity by Blair Enns and The Hard Thing About Hard Things by Ben Horowitz. Greg discussed It’s Not How Good You Are, It’s How Good You Want To Be by Paul Arden and Creativity, Inc by Ed Catmull.
