As I've grown in life and my career as a whole, the ecosystem around working for an employer was off-putting. I felt stranded at many times because there was limited to no flexibility, and no room for discussions. As time went on, this began to become a burden. As a way out, I've
You've probably heard the warning about how running your own email server is difficult. For many years I've ran my own email server, and it is definitely anything but difficult.

This week went rather fast, I had lots of fun time being with family, jamming out on the HAM, and learned a few things along the way. I've made some small investments in my business, including working on better product landing pages. I've decided to give Divi a shot, I was able to
