Ben’s List 4


They say CEOs read a lot. Like 50 books per year… there are several apps dedicated to this market, providing summaries of books, bookmarking, read-later, etc. But is it actually a good thing to spend so much time reading when you’re building a new company? It’s also a distraction from your market and customers.

Unsurprisingly, I can’t find a main topic in this week’s list because I read a lot of different things. So what’s in my brain in February 2021?

As usual, several resources for entrepreneurs, creators and marketers about community. You can check what I think communities are (and are not) in this article.

There’s also a bunch of articles about remote work and company culture. Some tips for founders raising funds and investors handling a small fund. These topics are also regulars.

From time to time, I find some interesting news in healthcare, food and music too; a perfect combo to nurture your body and soul. These are also areas that I’d be investing in if I was an angel.

We also cover the legendary annual report from Benedict Evens – a must read!

America’s Secret Playlists

…we find it hard to believe, in a world where people are so moved by the emotional realism of deep and dark emotions in their playlists and Netflix shows, that they won’t soon come to expect the same from companies, advertisers, government agencies, HR departments, and other so-called “professional culture” organizations.
