One of the main themes of this blog is helping people find a mentor or a non-traditional apprenticeship. I didn’t start out with the intent of writing about these issues, because I am not an expert on either one. I’ve never had a mentor, and I never apprenticed anywhere. But I’ve mentored people before, and posted the entire process I used to hire an assistant for a project awhile ago, as well as written quite a bit about how the hiring process has developed in my new company.

“The way to get good ideas is to get lots of ideas and throw the bad ones away.”
I have good news: If you like to read books, or you want to write books, then rejoice, because things have never been better for readers or authors.
