Brian Solis is a digital anthropologist, keynote speaker and best-selling author and one of Tara's old friends.

Life Scale is Brian's most recent book which is a departure from his previous work. Life Scale addresses the impact that social platforms and smart devices have in our lives. "As much as we multitask, love our devices, and feel like we're in control, deep down we know that something is off. Shortened attention spans, declines in critical thinking, lack of sleep, self-doubt, and decreased creativity are just some of the effects coming to light in an age of digital distraction. However, we might define success and happiness; our ability to make progress toward those goals has gone astray. It's time to reclaim our lives. It's time to take control."

Join us as we talk with Brian on what inspired him to write Life Scale, his strategies tactics to fight distraction and increase creativity.
