What is your biggest accomplishment at Wpromote?

What is your biggest challenge at Wpromote?
A: Finding free time in my day to…come up with new acronyms (or initialisms as Block likes to point out), write TOY emails, telling people I LCA them, and motivate people to GIG.
Who is your favorite co-worker and why?
A: Dana Gonzales, she’s the HBIC.
Whose social profiles do you stalk and why?
A: Kardashians, no judgement please.
