Red Squirrel’s Nuts: The Values of an Apprenticeship Program


For the past 8 years, My blog has always been a place where I can dump my ideas… to “bury my nuts" as my current subtitle says. Back in early 2005, I dumped a quote from Pat Metheny that grew into a book. Actually, that quote grew into 2 books, because Chad used it in The Passionate…

Love this quote from Malcom Gladwell mentioned here. 

“These [outliers are] people who were given a special opportunity to work really hard and siezed it, and who happened to come of age at a time when that extraordinary effort was rewarded by the rest of society." 

Red Squirrel’s Nuts: The Values of an Apprenticeship Program

Author: Tim Yandel

I'm Tim. I live in Cole Valley, San Francisco with my wife, Julie, and two daughters Addie and Audra. I tend to write a bunch about leading Sales teams, since that's what I've been doing since 2006. I'm particularly drawn to the psychology of selling, whether that be how people buy things or sell things, it's fascinating how decision-making is centered into the core of who you are as a person. I enjoy cultivating a culture centered around mastery of your craft and a genuine passion for winning together. Outside of professional learnings, I enjoy listening to epic sci-fi and fantasy books while I run long distances to decompress and obsessed with watching my two girls grow. For a good ice breaker, ask me about my Golden Retriever and my Bernese Mountain Dog.
