What Howdy Curiosity is All About


Give Your Passion Project a Try

Not interested in starting your own full-time business but still want to dip your toes in the water with a passion project on the side? We'll have a reading list for that. 


Be Your Own Boss

Always wanted to start your own small business? Thinking about ways to make money on the side?  You'll want to read through our recommended syllabus before committing to an MBA ;) 


Write, Paint, Play... Whatever!

Your job doesn't have to define your life. If corporate pragmatism is stifling your creative spirit, you will need to check out the collection of books on creativity we're building. They're guaranteed to reignite that creative spark you've been missing. 


Climb the Ladder

Wanting a new role? Trying to figure out your next career move? Hoping to make yourself the candidate for promotion on your team? Yeah, we're working on a reading list for that too.

Why I'm Opening a Bookstore

I'm Sick of Shallow Career Advice and Work-Life Balance Quips

How many times have you heard something like:

  • Do what you love, and you'll never work a day in your life.
  • You can't go into that field with your degree. You should go back to school. 
  • Why are you wasting time on that when you could be productive? 
  • Be the first to arrive at the office and the last to leave if you want to climb the ladder.

If you're like me, you've probably heard these a lot, either implicitly or explicitly. And, if you're like me, you probably know they're all garbage

Howdy, I'm Blake, the owner of Howdy Curiosity, and over the course of my career– from broke AF freelancer to six-figure-earning product leader– I've found that the key to building the kind of life you want to have is to be curious. 

The more time you spend exploring ideas, adventuring into new fields, acquiring new skills, tinkering with concepts, and having fun with learning in a way that school never allowed us, the better equipped you are to actively shape your life into something you enjoy. 

There are no magic bullets, no quick fixes, no get-rich-quick schemes that pay off in the long run. But when you're curious about the world around you and give yourself permission to try things out, fail, succeed, and try some more, the world gets a little more interesting. 

One of the ways I've had the most success dipping my toes into new ways of looking at the world: reading. 

I'm a bookworm. A proud word-nerd. And I want to share the books I love with the world and hopefully help guide a few of you along the path of living a curious life.
