Listen Up: Personal To-Dos and Everything You Need to Know About Book Publishing

Listen Up BY liz 07/18/2016


Why do we put off personal tasks waaay longer than we’d ever let a work project fester? Let’s stop that! Today we’re sharing the tools that help us tackle our own to-do lists, from getting prescriptions to tracking packages. And if writing a book happens to be on your agenda, we gotcha there too: Brilliant author and editor Rakesh Satyal stops by to break down the big, bad world of book publishing.


P.S. Speaking of books, don’t forget to pick up a copy of Foreign Affairs by Alison Lurie—we’re discussing it in the third installment of the #ReadingThings book club on 8/15!



The linkage…


Tools that make taking care of your personal biz a snap…


How we tackle health stuff:


How we get sh*t shipped:

  • Erica swears by Avery White Full-Sheet Labels, so you can reuse boxes without having to scrape off the old stickers with your fingernails.

  • Shyp picks up the thing you want to send, packages it, and prices out the best mailing rates.


How we deal with customer service stuff:

  • GetHuman does just that—it provides direct lines for non-robot customer service reps at pretty much any company you need to call (and can even deal with an issue for you!).


Our special and amazing guest Rakesh Satyal takes us through the life cycle of a book, from idea to shelf...


Our intro music, “Butterfield East,” is written and performed by The Soulful Saints. Because what’s a great show without a catchy theme song?
