Podcast wise you know I’ll do everything from self-improvement listening to things like Tim Ferriss to Michael Hyatt Art of Charm which sounds like a podcast that is like for pickup artists may have actually started that way but it really just understanding kind of human psychology. I do some Zig Ziglar type stuff but I also so people don’t think I’m too crazy on the business side. I listen to a lot of Barstool Sports podcasts and also Dan Carlin’s Hardcore History if there’s any fans out there I’m a huge fan of that. But my top one is probably Tim Ferriss. I think he just does a great job with interviews but also just interesting and differentiated information. Also my favorite is James Altucher Show. For those who are listeners but also spend a ton of time on audiobooks as well. I’ll switch back and forth between that and podcasts and those are. I’ll do a heavy like a month or two on podcast and I’ll do a heavy month or two on books. Other than that like I spend a lot of time in newsletters. I feel like that’s my best way to keep up to date on customers but also on what’s happening in the industry and then I’ll do a lot of Google Alerts in terms of like information I have to know so you know at the time it was any information I needed to know about LinkedIn that Google was crawling but also on Microsoft and so I’m getting every day as many updates as possible about our customers and so I really just try to keep myself ahead of even my customers in terms of knowledge about their company but also knowledge about their industry as well that would make me well informed when meeting with them.
