Getting Started #53 – Defeating Goliath

It’s been a while since I’ve made a video and some of you may have guessed that if you don’t
see a video from me for a while, it means that the ‘sheep’ has hit the fan. It’s been tough.

everything else in my life, and dealing with depression… Continue reading
