In this episode of the techPresident podcast:
SARAH LAI STIRLAND: I think Gavin Newsom is like the Richard Branson of policy. He's a social entrepeneur. He doesn't necessarily get all the details. Richard Branson has this book called, "Screw It, Just Do It," and I think that pretty much encapsulates Gavin Newsom's approach to trying new things.
He talks about trying and not failing, and it might sound very familiar to us because we write about this stuff, and we cover a lot of innovative people in government. But I'm sure for a lot of smaller governments that's not their approach. And I'm sure this book is valuable on that level.
