During my vacation in Mexico in March and spring break from graduate school, I had a chance to read “Linchpin” by Seth Godin, an essential read for anyone in the workforce today but especially for marketing professionals. The concepts that anyone can be an artist with work that brings about change, to be aware of our “lizard brain” and our higher mental abilities as well as the powerful exchange of gifts to bring abundance are wonderful to me. Mr. Godin gives relevant examples of these concepts in play during his professional and personal life that really bring home the concept of the linchpin as an indispensable force vital to her industry, society and team. If you have a chance I encourage everyone to give this book a read.
My rendezvous with coffee in Colorado continues with a review on Two Rivers Coffee shop, roastery and restaurant in Arvada published Monday on 303 Magazine here. The cortado espresso and lavender shortbread I had while chatting with the positive and intelligent owner, were excellent so I’m definitely going back to their new space that includes an in-house roastery and new food menu.
