In the last few days, I've had a few of those "professional conversations."
You know, the ones where you are called by people who want to hire the people who once interned for you, or worked for you in some shape for form.
I'm pretty proud that the HOT family line is now sprouting some leaves and branches from the FLZ tree Kane and I - and Jeff - came from.
And while I don't want to say anything yet, I have to tell you, I'm pretty proud of some of the people we've taught here. One call I got was from one of the most prolific content providers on the planet today for news, and the other was about someone who I think is one of the most promising talent I've seen since... well...
The seeds we've planted, and the ways we've cultivated might not have always been planted in the most traditional of ways, but I'll be damned if they've not grown to bear some amazing fruit.
Congrats to the people who know who they are. And congrats to those who have been able to add to that which is their family tree in this life.
