    Hey guys!

    We've managed to get our startup on the home page of The Pirate bay for the next few days!!!

    We're getting 1200ish hits per hour and I'm running a few A/B tests with Optimizely, but would love you feedback around different A/B experiments I can run while we've got this crazy traffic!

    Head over ot and feel free to hit me with as many experiments/improvements/general feedback as possible!

    Also, I'd be happy to make the results public if you're interested :)

    Thanks everyone!

    Hi guys,

    Really looking forward to meeting you all!

    Due to recent growth, our Melbourne team at Performance Education is interested in speaking to organisations who may be interested in taking an intern into their Accounting or IT departments. These recent graduates are keen and ready to challenge themselves and gain valuable experience to help them kick start their careers. If anyone wants to think about this before meeting with me in May please feel free to contact me though here!

      Hi Cathy, not at the moment unfortunately but we do from time to time. It's mainly accounting, IT and some engineering graduates. I'll definitely keep you in mind if we come across any.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
