I have no guests today. Just me! in this, I talk about my new book, Find Your Writing Voice, and I talk about the cool JUMPSTART offer I've got at my company. Beyond that, I don't think I mentioned anything worthy of a show note. Oh wait, I talked about the Sodastream machine. There. That's all the notes! Promised you that I'd write better show notes and voila! Drop me an email and tell me you read them?

My son, Harold Brogan, enlightens us about "soundclown" and "shitpost" music, which is something I doubt you've ever heard before. Later, in the secret part, my daughter talks to me about "Don't Hug Me, I'm Scared," a YouTube sensation. This one's pretty unique. Like my kids.

Nick Westergaard is here to talk about his new book, Get Scrappy, which is an awesome book on digital marketing and branding. Being that I don't LIKE books on digital marketing and branding, the fact I called this awesome should make you rush out and buy it. Like now

Ron Wallace has a great book, Leadership Lessons from a UPS Driver. His talk with me was brief but fascinating and full of value. This man's got a lot to offer and so does his book.
