Inside: Superhero costumes, article about the blockchain that even I could understand, a fake art factory, new sales job (can you intro me?), and my current favorite business app.
Why you’re getting this: This is my Friends Newsletter. I send it to people I’ve met recently, my contacts on LinkedIn, and friends I want to keep in touch with. Feel free to unsubscribe and I won’t be offended.
Travel: I’m going to Bordeaux, France tomorrow night for a quick vacation thanks to a very generous friend. Expect improbable tales of luxury to follow. Also working out a trip to Western China in late August.

NEW VIDEO: Superhero Surprise
Watch: It was like Halloween, but not. I had a Star Wars costume on.

I went to a surprise party in Brooklyn for my friend David’s birthday last weekend. We all dressed up in costumes and snuck into his apartment. Here’s my 1-minute video highlight:
GREAT ARTICLES I Read This Week
Blockchain: New Technology of Trust

COOL APP: Scannable
Turns your cell phone into a document scanner.
Turns your cell phone into a document scanner.
Not an ad, not a sponsored post. It’s free and made by Evernote.
I try to carry as little paper as possible. When I’m a conference, I use this app to scan in handouts and brochures to share with my team. It is really fast and makes JPGs or PDFs.
COOL JOB: Inbound Sales Manager (Remote)

We’re hiring, again!
Looking for an experienced Inbound Sales Manager to coach our fully-remote team of Client Advisors. Full-time job with benefits, growth, perks, etc. Not NYC; remote position in North America.
INTRO REQ: Do you know a Sales Manager?
Are you friends with someone who is a Sales Manager or Sales Director? Or just great at enterprise sales?
I want to get advice: How should we be recruiting for our new Inbound Sales Manager role?

My questions are:
  • Where should I post the job?
  • How should we do our interviews in a way that would test for performance and skill?
  • How much should we pay to get the best candidates?
  • What should I know before trying to build an outbound team?
If you know someone special who works in sales, I would love their advice. Please forward them this email. Or reply back to me and copy your friend. Or call me any time for a quick chat. My number is +1-917-635-9967
YouTube I liked: Southern Thai Food
A cool non-touristy look at Thailand's cuisine.

I’ve been watching YouTube videos while I eat lunch (is that bad?). I like this guy. Great attitude, speaks fluent Thai, and fun to see a more rural / non-tourist side of Thailand’s cuisine. I’m ready to go back to Thailand if anyone wants to go!
Netflix I liked: Homecoming King
Thanks to my friend Tynan for the tip.
