What I’m currently working on 👇🏽

My friend (connect with him please, his LinkedIn game is weak) and I have been talking about different apps & product ideas for a couple years now and we’ve finally landed on one that we really like. What is it you ask? Well, we think that reference checking in the hiring process is outdated and something should be done about it. We won’t have anything to share publicly for quite a while, but we set a deadline to have an MVP out by the end of the year, so if you’re interested in being one of our early testers, sign up below 👇🏽
I have a Notion page with dozens of these product/company ideas, so I’m really excited to finally start building one of them. If you ever want to see all my ideas or have an idea pitching contest, let me know ✌🏽
I just got back from Brazil after being there for one month. Many of my girlfriend’s friends and family spoke a lot of English, so I wasn’t forced to speak Portuguese as much as I thought. I have a much larger vocabulary, but now my studies will be focused on verb conjugations & prepositions.
I’m still following Nathanial Drew’s Portuguese Resources & learning methodology, some daily Duolingo, listening to music, and watching movies in Portuguese with english subtitles. I might get a real teacher if these don’t work out.
Publishing 24 more blog posts by July 8, 2024
I’ve really overcomplicated the idea of my blog to the point that I have over 30 ideas, many of them already drafted up, but never get to the polishing and posting part because I don’t think they’re good enough. This year I want to up the volume. Something is better than nothing, and that’s what you’ll all be getting, 24 somethings. And why July 8th? I do yearly planning around my birthdays, not the new year.
I’m still chasing the 1000lb club (1 rep of squat + deadlift + bench = 1000lb). I’m only ~40lbs off on my deadlift and ~20lbs off on my squat.
I haven’t registered for one yet, but my goal is to do a triathlon this year. I have a lot of training to do for the swim, but otherwise, it shouldn’t be too hard 🙂
