Welcome to my 6th logbook where I give a little insight into what’s happening behind and beyond the scenes of this show.

And I’m switching up the format a little bit! I’ve been meeting so many incredible ecosystem builders, and while I can’t have them all on the show, that’s not going to stop me from trying!

I’m super excited to introduce a new quarterly segment called the Unsung Heroes of Ecosystem Building.

I ran this campaign back in 2020 alongside two fellow ecosystem builders, Jeff Bennet and Jess Edwards, both of whom you’ve met on this show.

I often meet really brilliant ecosystem builders–online and in-person–and I want to be able to share their awesomeness with all of you! 

But before we go deep into meeting two Unsung Heroes, I’ll share what’s been going on in the Shenandoah Valley and behind the scenes of the show.
