Chris Hemsworth reprises his role as Thor for the blockbuster movie Thor: Ragnarok. This is the third time Hemsworth has been featured in a stand-alone Thor film (surprisingly, I have not done a Reel Leadership article on the other 2 Thor films).
Thor: Ragnarok changes tones for the third film. Ragnarok feels more like a buddy comedy than full-on action/superhero. And that’s not a bad thing.
The previous Thor films ranked on the lower end of the Marvel Cinematic Universe for me. They always felt like a letdown. Thor: Ragnarok doesn’t. Instead, Thor: Ragnarok delivers.
Not only does Thor: Ragnarok deliver in laughs, action, and adventure, Thor: Ragnarok delivers in leadership lessons as well.
I have to say I was intrigued when I received the book, Sneezing Jesus. The title is intriguing. What could Sneezing Jesus be about?

Paul Sohn and I once again hosted the annual Influencer Meetup At Catalyst (formerly the Catalyst Blogger Meetup). This event brought in over 50 attendees who are influencers in various spheres (blogging, podcasting, YouTube, writing, etc).
Not only did we bring in influencers, we brought in people who could help move those influencers forward. There were book publishers and agents that also attended. There were content creators looking for new voices.
By bringing these two groups together, Paul and I created an atmosphere where magic could happen. Influencers looking to get their voice hear had the chance to be heard by potential publishers. Publishers looking for new voices had the ears of potential clients. This was a win-win for both groups of people.
The Influencer Meetup At Catalyst was a connecting place. Read more...
