We talked about the up and downs of building a company/project.
Helperbird
How its important not to give up.
Dyslexia
Side projects
Burn out and more.

    Just listened to the podcast - my 13-year-old godson is dyslexic so I passed this along to his parents and just got this email from his Mom:

    "Thank you SO much for sending this! We have been trying to figure out how to install the font that he uses on the computer so that it would show up throughout the programs he uses, i.e. gmail and google drive and word. IT WORKED! I just download the free plugin and there is a button at the top of Crome for him to click on and it converts all of the fonts! it is awesome!"

    Great stuff!
