Commander’s Horn Update – November 16

Hi everyone! It’s been a very busy few weeks for me, and this week the podcast will be taking a break. I recorded a five-minute cast talking about this.

The good news is, I’m still putting a lot out there with streams, videos, and I will be casting the Gwent Open this weekend, Nov. 18 and 19. Episode #60 will come next week, and I already have the next few episodes planned out.

There’s a lot of travelling in my life, and I find myself saying “once I get home” a lot. It’s starting to lose meaning, honestly. Growth is not supposed to be easy. I’m finding that I do have limits, but solid organization will help me, long term.

You guys are the best!
