TDT 046: Monday Night AMA and Shopify Rant

Doing things a little different today, as I recorded a 32 minute “Ask Me Anything” on my Periscope last night. So, the format is certainly a little bit different than you’re used to, no idea if I will continue it, or not. But, it’s fun to change things up once in a while. So, tonight, […]

The Longest Trip EVER to Canada Begins

Greetings from the city center of Brussels, where I’m hanging out for the next couple of days. More thoughts on the city, food, culture, and more coming early this week (when I take the train to Frankfurt). But, I do want to say this… Today, I realized I have spent the last year in Eastern […]
