  1. Hey Bobby–Thanks for filling in. Hope you had a good time. And don’t forget to invite your peeps to click “Follow” so they can get the updates first-hand!

    Next week, we’ll go back to school on the show. Have a great holiday weekend.

  2. With havin so much written content do you ever run into any issues of
    plagorism or copyright infringement? My blog has
    a lot of exclusive content I’ve either created myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my authorization. Do you know any ways to help reduce content from being stolen? I’d certainly appreciate it.
