No New Podcast for a Few Weeks
I will not be publishing a new podcast until October 2nd. I am working hard with my team to finish a couple of really exciting, but demanding projects. I am making the choice to invest my hours in these and skip the podcast for a few weeks.
Thanks for your support. I look forward to connecting with you soon. I will continue to publish my blog on Mondays and Fridays.
