We love to learn as much as we can from our speakers, and we've found their answers to these 10 quick questions pretty inspiring and informative. It's a bit like shadowing along on their workday and having a peek over their shoulder to see how they remain so creative and productive. We call the series "What I Read and How I Read It."
