    Whats up with no link to my raddies. Do you have to meet a sales quota or art quota to get on there? WTF? I’m taking you off my blog, if I don’t see my URL up there in a week.

    Congrats again on the Disney gig!

  5. Inspired site. There are so many people doing wonderful, smart things – sometimes it feels like we’re hustling in a vacuum — so this is great. I just took a class with Dave. He got me on a renewed hustle track.
