Last week, I celebrated my very first Father’s Day. It was awesome. Got to hang out with all my family members and bask in the glory of finally becoming a Patriarch. I really enoyed it. As you can probably guess, I was off my phone for almost the entire day. So I didn’t see many…

After a short little hiatus, Email of the Week is officially BACK! Last week, my wife and I welcomed our first child into the world… a beautiful baby boy named Blake. So obviously, I wasn’t publishing a ton of content while we were stuck in the hospital. Duh. But now… I’m ready to sink my…
