AGL 166: Drive On with Scott DeLuzio

About Scott

Scott DeLuzio is a WordPress plugin developer, as well as a husband, father of three, and Army veteran, who unintentionally stumbled into web development while getting his degree in accounting. After graduating, he worked in the finance industry for six years, but continued to build websites on the side for family, friends, and local businesses.

After being deployed with the Army National Guard to Afghanistan in 2010, he took his interest in web development to a new level by joining a consulting firm’s in-house marketing team and eventually started his own full-time website design, maintenance, and support business in 2014.

Today, as his skills have grown and his interests have changed, he has moved away from designing websites and focuses primarily on building WordPress plugins for his company, Amplify Plugins. In his free time, he enjoys traveling, hiking, playing with his family, mentoring, speaking, and publishes a podcast called Drive On Podcast.

Special Thanks to Private Internet Access

private internet access

I’ve been a customer of Private Internet Access for 3 years now and I love this service.  I was at a security conference a few years ago and I connected to the hotel wifi.  Immediately my endpoint protection software began to alert me of hacking attempts.  I launched my VPN from Private Internet Access and all of the attempts were stopped. My data and internet connection was secure.  Another great use of the VPN service is connect from different geo locations, which is very helpful when testing DNS and CDN caching. To get a your VPN account starting at $3.33 per month, please visit https://ageekleader.com/vpn


I hope you enjoyed this show, please head over to Apple Podcast and subscribe and leave me a rating and review, even 1 sentence will help spread the word.  Thanks again!

AGL 163: COVID-19 Networking with Nate Peo

About Nate: DO YOU HAVE A PASSION FOR DOING GREAT THINGS, BUT FIND YOURSELF GIVING UP WHEN IT GETS TOO HARD? DO YOU PULL BACK OR FEEL VULNERABLE WHEN YOU PUT YOURSELF OUT THERE? That was ME. I stood on the sidelines and watched others succeed with consistent work and effort. I realized, like so many others, what I was lacking was the confidence and consistency to reach my OWN goals and dreams. As a result, my goals were not being fully realized. I was getting in my own way. It’s time… Enough is Enough! I’ve decided to stop holding […]
