Hey, team!

I’m back from a summer vacation that included a trip to Hawaii, a month away from work, and a foster kitten named June. It’s been a hectic few months, but I have some updates.

  1. I’m relaunching HR Books in the next few weeks. I missed it. The new site will be designed by 90 Degrees — the same team that helped me relaunch this very website. I’m super excited to bring you book recommendations, guest posts from authors who have something to say, and possibly another round of a book club. Reese Witherspoon and Oprah have staff, so my commitment to the book club is TBD. We’ll see how this goes.
  2. I’ve been trying to update my events page so we can connect when I’m in a town near you. This is important to me because I’d like to see you — especially when I launch my book tour. Please let me know if I’m in your town. If I have five seconds, I’ll say hello!
  3. Next up on my LR items to tackle: a refreshed YouTube page and a monthly newsletter. Maybe. Everybody has a regular newsletter, and almost anybody under the age of 22 has a personal YouTube channel, so I’m trying to figure out how to differentiate myself in those two spaces. Who do you like? Who’s doing interesting things on email or video? Leave a comment below. I’d love some recommendations.

I’m about to hit the road for 36 hours in San Francisco. No need to follow along on the social channels. Live your life. Hug your wife. Pet your dog. They miss you, and, honestly, you’re a better human being when you put down your phone and make a connection with someone in your real world.

But do come back when you’re bored with them because I have a fresh podcast with Julie Zhuo dropping in the morning!
