Welcome to The Main Thing. This is your new 9-minute podcast.  I’m your host Skip Lineberg. 

My guest today is Jeff James. Jeff has been a leader in the technology, marketing consulting, and publishing industries for the past twenty-five years. He held numerous marketing leadership roles at Microsoft Corporation; launched and managed Mythology, a strategic marketing consulting firm; and is currently a vice president and publisher of business and leadership books and e-courses at HarperCollins. He has also written his first book titled “Giving Up Whiteness” which will be published in October 2020.

Jeff holds a bachelors and a masters degree from West Virginia University and is currently pursuing a Ph.D. in Organizational Leadership at Eastern University in Philadelphia. Jeff lives in the Nashville, TN area with his wife, four amazing daughters, and whatever pets they have forced upon him.

Jeff James is my close, personal friend. And he is one of the wisest people I know. Over the next 9 minutes, you will find out what unique bit of wisdom Jeff has chosen to share with us.
