    My 2020 Annual Review...

    Posted by Ryan Hawk on Jan 5, 2021 11:27:58 AM

    One of the scary aspects of leaving my job as VP of North American Sales at a multibillion-dollar international company was the uncertainty. How would we build a business from a base of podcast fans? How would we create revenue from something that is free to listen to? How would I productize myself? Now that it’s been three years, we are starting to get some of these answers.

    Posted by Lily Morgan on Sep 3, 2020 9:53:57 AM

    It’s the morning commute, and traffic is stopped in both directions as I wait for new goslings and their parents to cross the road.
