Following Up Is Never Overrated

Since making the debut audio review covering Gary Vaynerchuk’s book Crush It!, I’ve been cherishing the interest of my collaborator Joe Giovenco—he has shared his music studio to record our review sessions of books about creativity and business. This follows his reading of the book we agree to review, editing the material and preparing it for posting. All done in a timely way, all speaking to following up.

Feels good when following up isn’t lip service. And it’s even better when it’s not even said, but simply done. And all the better, when repeated. People like Joe, who embody “following up” (rather than simply meaning to), make collaboration more comfortable, when getting something done, in order to get to the next thing, really is worth the effort.

At this posting, we made another audio of a design-related book worth reading and putting into practice. Arriving soon. Stay tuned. Listen to the review of Behance Founder and CEO Scott Belsky’s “Making Ideas Happen: Overcoming the Obstacles Between Vision and Reality”.
