If you’ve been privy to my little section of the internet for a while, you’re familiar with my old blog Who Made You Great, where I talk to people who are great at what they do about who helped them get there. If you’re not familiar, there are some really awesome interviews with people like Christine Edwards, Manager of the Bungie Foundation, D.R.E.S. the BEATnik, underground concierge and host extraordinaire (who you 100% know if you live in Atlanta), and Danni Washington, founder of The Big Blue and You, show host, and mermaid. They all live here on LalaJackson.com now, although I’m in the process of transferring all of the old interviews over (sit tight!).
As part of this series, I started sharing books, tools, classes and more that we can use to make OURSELVES great, because who doesn’t want that? Any time we can manage to level up and stock our brains with information, I’m all for it.
In this first video edition of Make Yourself Great, I review two books that I finished last week – Amanda Palmer’s The Art of Asking: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Let People Help and Austin Kleon’s Steal Like an Artist: 10 Things Nobody Told You About Being a Creative. I loved them both for different reasons. Check out why below!
What books, tools, classes, etc. have you been using to make yourself great(er)? Leave a comment below so I can check them out – if there’s anything I particularly love (or particularly was not a fan of), I’ll share a review!
Thanks friends. Keep chasing greatness.
