SETUP GLOW-UP: 2022 EDITION
A lot of people feel like 2022 is the year of change. In the past few years, we had to learn to be more adaptable to change. We embrace change. We love change.
At the beginning of the year, we announced our Setup Challenge, where we asked that you show us how much your setup improved in the last year, and let me just say that everyone at the office was super impressed.
Looking at your setups was easy, it was picking a winner that became a challenge.
After long deliberation, we came to a conclusion. The winner is...
