Got remarried about two weeks ago, then went out of town for a few days, so I've been sitting on this interview with Jim Monroe for a minute, and it's time now to release it into the broader world. He's the author of a book called "Don't Be A Dick Manager," and if you know anything about my seven years of blogging, that's a theme I hit on a lot. This conversation is about management, life, business models, California, the propensity of world-building executives to think of themselves as geniuses, and more. We get into some emotional labor near the end too. Hope you dig it, and I'll be back with some more consistent episode bases coming up in a second.
