I love surrounding myself with good books and media, whether it’s something new to inspire and drive my motivation, or a comforting old favorite to give my mind a needed break. You’ll always find me with a queue of podcasts ready to go and a stack of good reads on my nightstand. Here’s a selection of my current favorites so you can read and listen along, too.

"You don't build culture by offering free snacks, a gym or open seating. You build culture by talking to people, and understanding what they care about."
''I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.''
Maya Angelou
''Before you argue with someone, ask yourself, is that person even mentally mature enough to grasp the concept of different perspective? Because if not, there is absolutely no point.''
