What’s In This Episode: The times are changing... but are they really? Brad's annoyed because he had to renew his passport, which involved printing out photos to mail them in, the photos had to be specific dimensions, and he just wants it to be done in a modern way. Is that too much to ask? "We're doing things differently than we were five years ago.

Jill and Brad disagree on this, but stop sending emails back and forth to schedule and use an app. Hiring: Resumes lie. Use a Google Form and get the answers you want to know. Your website. Revamp it! Make it work for you. Think about this last one consciously...Read more »
