A New Book from Clearbit: From IC to Leader
My friends at Clearbit are in the process of releasing another great ebook. Here are a few great chapters I recommend checking out:
- Maria Osipova on self-educating to create new opportunities
- Anne Fleshman on when to stop doing and start guiding
- Sophia Eng on public speaking
This is a great post from my teammate Ryan Law:
We can't hold our breath forever. Even in the midst of crisis, marketing must go on. In many cases, how businesses interact with the wider world is more important than ever. We need to offer reassurance, deliver mission critical information to customers, and prepare for the months ahead.
It includes a number of content examples from SaaS companies. Explore, get inspired and get to work.
Justin Gage, a growth marketer at Retool, writes a great newsletter that explains technical concepts for the rest of us. He does a great job breaking things down. I now feel much better about using words like version control and HTTP.
3. Metaphor Map
Along the same lines, my teammate Nick Moore created this awesome database of metaphors. There are tons of useful metaphors in here, each with an explanation. I learned quite a bit in just a few minutes.
Have a great weekend!
