I'm going to try something new here on the Weekend Reads. Kind of like a content mullet, business in the front, party in the back, I'm going to start sharing a few business-related articles up front and then all the fun stuff I know you already love. The reason being that a lot of the business-y links I share at work get a lot of conversations going so why not bring some of those here? Let me know what you think in the comments. If you hate it, we'll dump the work stuff and just keep it fun and light!
