Show Notes: 

Editors Note: During the Podcast (39:50) I mis-spoke when I named James Smith as the mentor I was referring too. I actually meant to say James Fitzgerald of OPEX, not Jame Smith of OPEX obviously. Both James Smith (The Thinker) and James Fitzgerald are wondering friends and mentors of mine, but I did mean to say James Fitzgerald's name.
