Running and Entreprenuership

For me and the other guys at Five Espressos, it has been a very introspective period of time.

We are hoping to have a new service launched before the end of summer, and we are also redefining our focus for our web design business as well.

Just like you are doing, reading this now.

If you see me in the future, ask how I’m doing. I tend to not hold things back!
