Hey guys. This morning I’m recovering from a party of 25 in my smallish apartment. I’ve been busy lately and haven’t seen my good friends in a long time so it was truly special. Every year we all make sure to get together, dress up nice, and eat great food. This was our tenth anniversary. Despite us all following different paths it shows the importance of true friends. many of us had not seen each other in months or more and yet, it still felt like old times. Cherish the people who are important to you.
Also I get asked daily how I built the incredible team of coaches at the PTDC. Instead of answering each person specifically I wrote an official response and had it published on Problogger. This is special because Problogger was the first book I ever read on blogs. I’m glad they liked what I had to say. You can check out the article here.
