Hello Omni Talk Fans! Well, I certainly got an early start to my week because I boarded a plane this morning at 7:50 AM to give a keynote address at Manhattan’s Momentum Conference in Hollywood, Florida.
So today’s newsletter comes to you from 30,000 feet in the air, with arms fully tucked into my sides as close as possible, amid what is an extremely packed flight. One saving grace, however, is that I am wearing shorts on a plane for the first time in a long time (thanks Lululemon) because Florida is supposed to be hot, and I have never been there this time of year.
In addition to today’s headlines, we have another great podcast for you with one of our favorite people at Omni Talk -- Indy Guha of Signifyd.
