The Human Side of Business and Ways We Make Stuff Up: Episode 43

July 7, 2014

This episode marks one year of the PM for the Masses Podcast.

I can’t believe how far we have come with the show.  Just a year ago I did not know many of my guests and most of you who listen to the show and visit the website.  I think it’s fair to say I have made many, many friends in these 12 months.

It is fitting that today we talk about the human side of business.  To talk about that and the ways we make stuff up, I bring you my new friend Jonathan Creaghan.
