Blogging has been and will most likely continue to be the most important part of my professional career as it's been foundational in too many ways to count. It has helped me build teams, raise venture capital, test and prove product concepts, and even get new job offers and exciting opportunities to name just a few. If there was ever a time to start blogging it is now and I hope to provide some context for how this is done as well as demystify many of the excuses that you may have for not starting.

As you might imagine, it's more than just "blogging" but it's where we'll start the conversation. I hope to make a blogger out of all of you - so hope to see you there!
