It’s a Grind

Today I enter a grinder. As most who know me are aware, I travel. A lot. It’s an occupational hazard of someone with a job like mine – I am frequently on the road, visiting customers, prospects and attending conferences.  Add in the bonus of working for a company headquartered in Tel Aviv, and having much of my team located…
