Talking to a longterm mentee (ex-Afghanistan)

Sorry for the two updates, big day :)

I take 'Talk to your Customers' very seriously. In fact, I have a dashboard and scripts running that identify people that I should talk to, and then I get busy emailing :)

I talked with Peyton probably first 6 months ago? He was getting mentored by a technical mentor from Apple. He had come back from Afghanistan, built a few e-Commerce businesses but was looking to get into tech, so signed up.

Now, a few months later, he is super proficient in React and JS, is slaying technical interviews, and was a huge help to what the platform is today.

    This is amazing!

    It has to feel so great to not only get direct positive feedback like this from a user of your product, but also to know that your product has impacted their life in such an overwhelmingly positive and transformative way.

    Super inspiring Dominic, congrats and thanks for sharing with the rest of us.
