A lot of good information.

What did you love best about Thread's Not Dead?

There is a lot of good info in this book, I originally was looking for info for an idea I had about coming up with some humors designs to have printed on some t-shirts to sell online. And while there is information that answered some of the questions I had, in my mind, the book also got me thinking more about starting a "Brand".

I'm definitely going to listen to it again, with some new branding Ideas in mind.

I also like when the books are read by the other.
