Special Thanks to 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.

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!

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 […]
