Town Hall #8: Scaling

Subscribe to Taylor’s Town Hall via email.

Last week, plague entered my home like an unwelcome relative.

“It’s been a while, Illness.”

The fog lifts. I see mountains.

I’ll be bicycling 545 miles this June! To support my ride, donate $25 to fight HIV/AIDS.

Outland ambles ever closer! We’ve secured incredible speakers this year. Ask your boss to buy your ticket or sponsor the event.

For the next 30 days, I’ll be focusing on my business venture. If I can’t complete my MVP by May 1, I’ll abandon the dream. Wish me luck!

The air is nice up here.
