Episode 8: My chin is the opposite of big

Over the course of this 48-ish minute rant, we cover cold-calling companies (say that 3 times fast), hiring people from overseas and all over the US, and inevitably, we talk about *sigh* “laptop life.”

I’ve got my own very different views of laptop life and cell phone life that I won’t get into here. You should put your head into the culture for just a minute or two and gather your own opinions. Needless to say, but I’M GONNA SAY IT ANYWAY, I despise the fantasy that people portray as the digital nomad / laptop life / cell phone life.

Also, beware when hiring people using services such as Upwork. Upwork, by and by, are a pretty good company. They make finding, hiring, and paying people to do your freelance work very easy. They also make you, and your freelancers, pay for that ease. To the tune of 7% from the client and 20% (20 f#*$ing %!) from the freelancers themselves. It’s outrageous. It’s also super easy to use.

Episode 7: If They Aren’t A Scammer I’ll Give You A Crisp $20 Bill

Have you ever had your Google My Business listing taken away? Happened to me. It was very stressful, and it took a full 3 days to get it back. All be it without (spoilers) our reviews. Yep. Our wonderful, well written, glowing reviews that all of our satisfied customers have left us, gone. Blinked out of existence by an angry Google.

Oh, and an Apple (possibly, we’re not 100% on this yet) employee decided that taking a dump on one of our paid advertisements was a good idea. Do you think it’s a good idea? Here’s a hint: It’s not. There’s no reason for an employee of a company that we do repairs for should ever interact with our advertisements. Especially not to do what he did. Listen on and be amazed.
