It's been a really hot summer! Finally today we got some cloudy rainy relief so it's good day to post on the blogs. When it's hot, what things do you do to keep productive in all this heat? Reading great articles is a good start! The following links focus on resumes, marketing mojo, rethinking failure, storytelling and your audience. As a bonus, I've attached an mp3 illustration conversation with illustrator Brian Bowes where we chat about creativity, Seth Godin, motivation and other things.
