100 - Meet Venn Gantt

Join us for our 100th episode! We get a bit nostalgic, discuss the challenges of product launches, reflect on lessons learned from business coaching, and explore the art of video content creation. Plus, we have a software corner, customer interactions, and potential SEO impacts of archiving products. Also, balancing custom projects with product focus.
