Notes from Chris
Episode 1307Welcome to Throwback Thursday / “Where are they now?” where we take an in-depth look at someone who’s story has evolved considerably since we first featured them. Last week we heard from a blogger in India who earns affiliate commissions on financial products.

Today, in our latest feature, we’ll hear from Alex Bricker, an English teacher who turned his passion for verbs into online income. We first featured him many days ago - about two years ago, in fact - in Episode 499. What’s happened since? A lot of things have gone well, but not everything Listen to today's episode to hear Alex's updates...
