Ben and I sat down for our annual mid-year refresh and check-in for 2020. (Whew! There was a LOT to cover.) 

We talked about how the pandemic has affected our personal lives, our business and beyond. The current political and social climate we’re all in. Plus, Ben opens up about his former career as a police officer, his views on the Black Lives Matter movement + racial injustices, and what his thoughts are on defunding the police (and what that actually means.) 

It’s an honor to do life with such an incredible human, and I’m so excited to share this beautiful conversation with you.
