Let me tell you something about @leilajanah. She is a fighter and a winner. During Christmas last year, she was having two emergency surgeries in Munich (and a third in Helsinki). It was scary, it was difficult. 
Less than a month later, Leila is kicking ass and buying me smoothies. Today, we are in NYC for the Samaschool advisory board meeting, talking about how we can further its mission to prepare low-income populations to succeed as independent workers. 
Leila, you are amazing. Thank you for letting me serve on the @samasource board and being my friend.

I’ve started to host tastings of Grand Old Parr 12-year scotch whiskey for my close friends. 🥃 It is an utterly delicious blend that has a malty, rich flavor. Not enough people know about it. 
The fact that it shares my name has nothing to do with my love of Grand Old Parr. 😉

Who wants to try some?

Friends, 
I appeared on MSNBC Your Business this morning to talk about how entrepreneurs can automate their marketing and sales! 😃

Here's the full video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lhTprZCogew

We had a lovely chat about tools like Zapier, Octane AI's progress, and the problem of abandoned carts. It was excellent to reunite with my friend JJ Ramberg and with my new friend Jonathan Lipton.

Hopefully it won't be my last appearance! 🚀🔥🤖
