Have You Met Benz?

By on June 15, 2021

Almost everything I do involves my full-time assistant, Benz. She does research, she runs errands, she assists with content creation and project work. She even serves as my personal chef. Pick an area of my life, and Benz is involved behind the scenes.

To know me, you need to know Benz.

With that in mind, Benz and I put together a playful 1-minute video where we introduce her and give some fun facts about her life. By the end of the video, you’ll know my assistant and have a basic understanding of who she is as a person.

Enjoy. We sure had fun making it.
