Episode 33: Systems Thinking

We are proud to announce that we are officially launching our Systems Thinking Workshop! We think of a role for Voiceover Guy in the workshops, though it's not the role he wants. Josh shares two types of decisions why you should differentiate between, and we discuss how to let people know what you want from them in as few words as possible.

Episode 22: Toxic People

Episode 22: Toxic People

Once again, we discuss the danger of lists, and the word "dementor" is actually used in one of them, and it is NOT a Harry Potter reference. Josh and Megan talk about strategies of connection and the power of the group in order to be more innovative. Megan has a controversial perspective about large corporations moving into cities and the impact that has. Josh shares how a list of toxic people indicates that we should be evaluating types of activities, not types of people.

Episode 14: Frosty Disruption

There's music in this episode, in many forms. Josh and Megan yell about a lot of things from fake eviction notices to companies ignoring obvious business trends. We laugh about the battle between boomers and millennials (special thanks to a young listener), and give Amazon the best business idea. Ever. You're welcome, Amazon. Additional Info: Instagram is the shot of life that the music industry needs. https://flipboard.com/@flipboard/-bill-gates-will-invest-more-than-1-bill/f-54b8d65530%2Fbusinessinsider.com C'mon pharmacies... you don't see Amazon coming? https://www.nytimes.com/2017/10/27/technology/amazon-pharmacy-drugs.html
