Check out the podcast Radical Candor. It’s heavily grounded in how to give valuable feedback, both upward and downward. Not specific to creatives or agencies, but was really insightful nonetheless. My first agency job was working for a tyrant ECD who was a terrible manager and kept everything to himself, so I’ve made it a point as I’ve grown to be really on point with feedback and professional development (in addition to being a good creative, of course).


Check out “start up” by Gimlet media. It’s an amazing podcast on creative leadership within the startup space but some of the tactics can definitely be applied to other industries.

Herding Tigers is a great book.

Am I jerk for telling my boyfriend I don’t want to hear about his finances? Since day 1 he’s always been so cynical about money. Every time we do something nice like go out or go on a date, I always have to put up with hearing “I spent too much money” for days after. At one point in our relationship, I kept hearing “this Uber cost us 1/4th of a flight ticket to ____” as a measurement. I keep telling him to keep me out of it, but it doesn’t stop 🤯 Is there anything I can do to (cont)
