#AskJaden – Your Chance To Pick Our Brains With A Bite-Sized New Podcast!

I’m like a sugared-up kid the night before Santa squeezes himself down the chimney – excited, nervous and rather hopeful that all goes to plan. The anticipation is palpable.

Besides, I think they tell a far more interesting story than I could. So with that, here are some of the notches we added to our belt this year, as told by the stats:
