About this episode:

In the first of our “between the seasons” episodes, we ring in 2020 with New Year’s resolutions—particularly the ones in which people set out to find a new job. According to an Inc. Magazine survey, 16 percent or nearly 53 million of us will seek a new job this year. It surprises us that the number is not higher; the Gallup Organization reports that 66 percent, or 145 million American workers, find work to be, to some degree, meaningless.

Also in this episode we meet Gresham Harkless, Jr. of Blue16 Media. Along with our Tightrope Podcast co-producer Carla A. Fleming, Gresh completely reimagined the DanSmolen.com website to provide our followers a phenomenal user experience, to fully explore all of our content: podcast episodes, blog posts, and work-related thought-leadership. Most important, Gresh takes us through the critical design thinking that went into launching the new DanSmolen.com site.
