Crazy! But sometimes, we have to remember the art behind marketing, branding, communicating. It's a game of trial-and-error, test and default.

Best Business Podcasts to Add to Your Playlist

My drive to work is typically at least an hour each way (if not more!) so podcasts are definitely my life-savers. I've found that I can listen to a podcast and get completely out of post-work mode.
