We don't talk enough about mental health and wellbeing for business professionals and entrepreneurs. Stress, anxiety, and depression are on the rise (thanks, modern society) and yet we don't know how to tell others what we're dealing with. We don't know how to help ourselves to feel less of it. And we don't know how to interact with others dealing with it. I have a few thoughts for you. Drop an email: email@example.com if you want to talk more.
Let's catch up with Professor DaddyO from the legendary hip hop band Stetsasonic. Glenn Bolton is not only a musical icon, but also a technologist, a future thinker, and someone with a lot of good ideas and interesting perspectives. We cover a lot of ground in this interview. (It might be one of my top 3 ever.)
Beth Comstock is the former Vice-Chair and CMO of GE, and she published an amazing book in 2018 called Imagine It Forward: Courage, Creativity, and the Power to Change. I haven't caught up with Beth in maybe ten years. She talks about leadership, about learning to be more creative, and about what it takes to make big companies and small alike move forward and grow.
