Each week at Brooks Bell, we have a short meeting Friday morning with the entire team. During the meeting we get updates on tests and the company, and award a “Star of the Week.” This week, our Star is content strategist David DeFranza!
This week, our content strategist David did great work! Always willing to help out (and turn things around quickly!), he is a well-deserved recipient of the Star of the Week trophy. Congratulations David!
Are you reading anything interesting right now?
I’m finishing The Practice of Management by Peter Drucker. It’s undeniably dated but still interesting because it is so foundational to the way people think about business strategy. As a bonus, Drucker is eminently quotable.
Do you have any advice for aspiring writers or those new to the field?
Read broadly—across genres, periods, and subjects—and deeply. After that, make time to write every day.
If you could take a vacation anywhere in the world, where would you go?
Right now I’m planning my honeymoon, so I’d have to go with that: Iceland over the New Years holiday.
The Brooks Bell Star of the Week is a team member who has gone above and beyond typical expectations during the week. The award is designed to empower our team and ensure everyone’s hard work is appreciated and recognized.
The winner receives a large trophy they get to keep for the entire week, fully equipped with extra Nerf darts (extra protection for those impromptu Nerf wars). They also get the honor of selecting the following week’s winner.
Sound like fun? Check to see if we’re hiring.
