Enter for your chance to win a limited edition poster designed & printed by award-winning lettering artist Jessica Hische in collaboration with author of THE MESSY MIDDLE, Scott Belsky.


The Messy Middle is the indispensable guide for navigating the volatility of new ventures and leading bold creative projects, by bestselling author Scott Belsky, who is an entrepreneur, Chief Product Officer at Adobe, and product advisor to many of today's top start-ups.

Quite simply, the book’s 100+ insights help you:

  • Endure the human-tendency-defying woes of the middle (your war with self-doubt, the roller coaster of incremental successes and failures, and bouts of the mundane amidst sheer anonymity — by strengthening your resolve, embracing the long-game, and short-circuiting your reward system).
  • Optimize everything that works (constantly improving the way you hire, structure, and manage your team, relentlessly simplifying and iterating your product while staying anchored by your customers’ needs, and crafting your instincts to make better decisions and internalize what you’re learning while staying relatable).
  • Not screw up “the final mile” of a successful project (once the finish line is in sight, the game changes and so do we…).

The book is broken down into three sections of insights culled from interviews of entrepreneurs, artists, writers, and executives about their middles. This book will outfit you to find your way through the messy middle of any new venture or bold project.
