    Really enjoyed the article, dude! Good luck with the newsletter and Krit. I'm pretty sure I still have some Krit swag lying around somewhere from GIANT long ago.

      Hahaha, that's awesome! Thanks, Matt! We were just reminiscing about GIANT the other day. Ant (one of the founders) is back in Charleston and doing some cool work.

    Hey Andrew, great article. I think it's great you were able to overcome your fears to buy a product. I feel like it's riskier (maybe more exciting too) when you're coming out of a service business but it looks like you'll do just fine.
