Episode Highlights and Show Notes:
Arsalan: Hi, Everyone. Today, my guest is Damian Brady. Damian, how are you?
Damian: I’m good, thank you. How are you?
Arsalan: Doing fantastic. And, you are not in the US. You are actually somewhere else. Where are you right now?
Damian: I’m in Australia at the moment, on the East coast in a place called New Castle, which is about two hours North of Sydney.
Arsalan: Right. Is it true that it’s summertime over there? It’s hot and sunny where you live?
Damian: Yeah, it’s very much summer time. It’s been 30-something degrees every day, which is Celsius. I can’t do the conversion. We’re talking 90’s [in Fahrenheit], I think.
Arsalan: Wow. I live in Ohio and we’ve had lots of snowstorms this time of the year. We are not very far from Canada, where you lived for a while. What were you doing there?
Damian: I was living in Toronto for 12 months, basically for my wife’s work. I went over there with her. I’m lucky enough to be able to work pretty much from anywhere
