The Modern Block is a weekly publication made up of conversations with today’s most thoughtful creators. I believe there’s a tremendous amount to learn from spending time around people that you simply won’t learn in traditional business literature and articles. I’ve learned from a mentor early on that one of the most important things you can appreciate as an entrepreneur is context. That if you can be aware of the hard work being done by your peers—both toward success and failure—it’ll color and solidify your personal direction in a meaningful way.
This principle continues to hold true throughout my constant process of learning, my time spent around other makers and every interview I conduct. Diving into every relationship we build here at The Modern Block with intentions of acknowledging the hard work done (and the challenges faced) by our peers, I’ve found these conversations leaving a great impact on my own journey. I share these conversations in hopes of them leaving that same impact on our readers—those on the shared path of creating something remarkable.
