Terrified, Funny, Suck-Loving Humans and a Heartfelt Goodbye

About 6 years ago, I answered a Craigslist ad to become a marketer’s assistant. In doing so, although I didn’t know it at the time, I took the biggest, most audacious step of my life to date, and it meant more change, more personal growth, and more opportunity than I ever imagined. And I’m about to take another one. After many long and wonderful years working with Danny and the team at Mirasee, it’s time …

A lot of things have changed since then, and I’d like to share some of the highlights of the biggest things that have happened, and are …

Staying Sane as a New Working Parent

Hi, I’m Peter. You know, Peter. Peter Vogopoulos. The other guy from Mirasee? *Sigh* One of the wonderful things about being part of Mirasee is connecting with awesome people who like what we do. When I say “Peter Vogopoulos” they usually say “hello”. When they hear “Mirasee”, their (virtual) faces light up and they say “Oh yeah, Danny Iny! I know him… I love his stuff.

Our Magical Hin-Jew Wedding

I’m married! It’s part exciting, part surreal, and part exactly the same. And I couldn’t be happier. 🙂 The whole thing was a bit of a whirlwind. We spent months and months planning this day, and it was absolutely magical – and I don’t recall ever using that word to describe an experience before! Within a few days of the wedding, family and friends had spread back to their respective corners of the globe, and …
