What We’re Watching
Nathan Lyons and Marshall Goldsmith give us a brilliant 5 minutes on real life executive coaching.

Tip of the Week
Whats the most popular app we use every week? Amazon Music. We do a lot of writing and content production so having a song streaming in the background has shown to keep your mind focused. Sometimes we listen to the same song 20 or more times in row! Give it a shot.
