I actually really liked the point about helping Josh Kaufman with his projects.

And I'm sorry I can't make the meeting tomorrow! I will be traveling for work. But I did talk with Matt this evening and he's going to record the call so I can listen later. I also told him a few of my thoughts so I guess he can bring those up if he feels they're appropriate.

I agree with Roxy about Josh Kaufman. Paul and I had a pretty long discussion with him, so we will update you on that. If it seems like a good jump-off point, I'm happy to carry that into the discussion.
