I’m Jason Robinson (Twitter: @jc_robinson), Founder & CEO of Next Mountain, which is a career management platform.
These days, I’m working on Next Mountain’s products and content. For products, the web app is live, and Andriod/iOS are in the works (Kotlin is awesome, btw). For content, I have a list of ~100 blog posts that need to be written, and ~30 info courses that need to be recorded…
Picking one book, link, or article that’s influenced my thinking lately is a challenge (and so many good ones are already on the list), because I read broadly.
Kindle tells me that I’ve made it through 19% of Tim Ferriss’ Tools Of Titans, which makes me think more about health (it’s split into healthy, wealthy, and wise, and at 19%, I’ve only hit healthy). I think a lot about the gradual integration of devices with people and its consequences, so sensory deprivation tanks are interesting.
I’m at the 55% mark on Ben Horowitz’s The Hard Thing About Hard Things, which was recommended to me by the CEO of Origami Logic. Having worked in many teams and in many settings, including solo, a small pre-Series A team (6), a pre-IPO growth company, and a tech titan, I’d say that Ben’s advice is worth pondering before/while growing a team.
And thanks for the forum invite, @andrewchen!
