s3e5: Jake Johnson

One of the great parts about working remotely is the idea that you can work from wherever you want. This week I chat with Jake Johnson who took that idea to the extreme, purchased a van and hit the road. For over a year he lived in the van with his partner and their dog…

s3e4: Linda Lou

How many 9 year old do you know who have sent dirty jokes to Johnny Carson? I can say without a doubt, for me, the answer is 1. And her name is Linda Lou. As a huge fan of comedy, getting the chance to sit down and chat with a standup comic is a great…

s3e3: Matt Piper

I hired Matt at a job about 15 years ago and we’ve been friends ever since. It was a great pleasure to watch him advance at the company from a developer to manager to CTO. But the success at the company didn’t translate into happiness. As a matter of fact, it was the opposite. That’s…

s2e9: Toby Cryns

Have you ever had somebody in your life who you’ve only met in person maybe a handful of times, you never worked directly together, you can go for months or even years without chatting, and yet, you feel really connected to that person? For me, Toby Cryns is one of those guys. Over the past…

s2e8: Kri Edholm

One of the most common pieces of advice people love to give is “find your passion and make it a career.” And when you find somebody who has done exactly that, it is inspiring to see. Over the last decade or so, I’ve watched Kri turn her leadership skills and her passion for the outdoors…
