I still remember sitting at Starbucks about 18 months ago with my boss, Rick Dunham, where I shared with him my fascination with cryptocurrency and the 2 of us trying to wrap our minds around what it is and the implications that can follow? Unfortunately, we didn’t figure it all out in that hour at Starbucks, but it was the beginning of a journey.
These conversations took me down a path of questions that included:
What is money?
Why is money worth anything?

I’ve been working remotely for almost five years now. I love the flexibility that allows me to be able to work from home, while traveling, and with a team that is distributed around the world.

MY SISTER IS A PUBLISHED AUTHOR!!!!!!!!
To say that my sister, Becky, and I are close might be the understatement of the year. It’s hard to begin to describe the depth of our sibling relationship. The reality of the depth comes from the valleys that we’ve been through together. We endured broken relationships, painful losses, school challenges, and constant change. We navigated some hilarious phases like Jinco jeans (her) and Nike earrings (me). We journeyed through her countless surgeries that seemed to never end and both helped each other move more times than we could count. We even got arrested together (another story for another time)!
