Honored to have been the latest podcast guest of +Craig McBreen who did a fantastic job (IMHO) of capturing the essence of my own reinvention story as well as that of my new business +ReinventionWorks.

Why in the holy heck won't Facebook consistently work with Chrome Incognito? Hmm, is this a kind of forced pay-to-play where the payment is forced tracking??
