Clint authored and edited a number of books (Good Reads). The most recent one is called: The Boys of Everest: The Tragic Story of Climbing's Greatest Generation.
Clint and I immediately sparked a conversation about spirituality, meditation and what it means to live a meaningful life.
When I was a little girl growing up in Beijing, I dreamed of living a Californian life. At the age of 27, I asked Clint: "What if I want to surf?" He responded, "You surf."
Before we get down to business, here are a few fun facts about Clint:
- An avid surfer who discovered surfing at the age of 50
- Worked as an editor at Times in NYC before founding The Writing Company in 1983
- Regularly practices medication, yoga and surfs as much as he can near his home in Portland, Maine
In Part 1 of our interview, Clint dissects the construction of his company, The Writing Company, and answers questions such as:
- How to create and sustain a collaborative environment?
- What is the process to promote and regularly practice collaboration among writers?
- How does Clint create an effective peer review system?
- What is the hiring process?
- What does it take to continue his legacy and embrace the company's unique culture?
- How does Clint recognize good vs. bad writing? What does "bad writing" mean to Clint?
