Scaling Up, by Verne Harnish
On the Nightstand of:
Kristen Coury, Founder and Producing Artistic Director, Gulfshore Playhouse
I’m reading Scaling Up, by Verne Harnish. It has to do with growing your business from a small business to a big business. We are in the process of doing just that at Gulfshore Playhouse as we prepare to build a 56,000-square-foot theater and education center in Naples.
Tired of reaching for your phone to check the clock each morning? The Atomic Alarm Clock sold by Hammacher Schlemmer displays not only time with numbers more than 1-inch high, but also the day and date, temperature, humidity and moon phase. Its best feature? A USB port so you can charge your cellphone. That way you can still keep your device bedside for tending to late-night emails. $49.95, hammacher.com.
Just for You
If you’re a tea fan, you’ll love the Tealyra Peak Ceramic Tea Mug. It comes with its own infuser and lid (which doubles as a coaster for your strainer when you finish steeping). It comes in eight festive colors, is sturdy and dishwasher safe, and just might be the perfect accessory for your desk. $19.50, tealyra.com.
