Today on the show we have Michael Foster and Brian Wallace, co-founders of Foster & Wallace. Their firm is based in Kansas City and is brand new-less than a year old.

Hacking’s Hack: Ryan McKeen said at the beginning of the year that he’s done reading business books. I’m reading a book right now called Billion Dollar Whale. Think modern day Malaysian Gatsby except it all really happened.

Tyson’s Tip: Two books by Russell Brunston- .com secrets and expert secrets. I use these as desk references.
