E454: What We Learned from Visiting Our Team in the Philippines

It finally happened–we made it to Cebu! Dave and I aligned our travel dates so that we’d have a few days to spend with the EcomCrew team while we were there.

It’s been three years since I last saw some of them (most I haven’t met in person at all), and it was Dave’s first time in Cebu, so we were pretty excited to say the least.

While it was definitely great to finally be back, this visit was also bittersweet because we recently lost a dear member of our Terran family.
