    Hot Type - 100 Things I Believe

    Hot Type - 100 Things I Believe

    A special, solo episode of The Forge where I walk through a list of 100 things I believe. It's an exercise in paying attention and being intentional about the things you do and knowing why you choose to do them. Might not be a bad exercise for you all to try, too.

    Encore: We're All Sales, People

    I truly wish I had a nickel for every time I said to myself in my misguided youth - "I never want to do sales!" It took a long time, but after reading my friend Brett Keirstead's book, I finally understand. Give this one a listen and see what he made that we can all value.
