Erynn is your backpocket ninja -- obsessed with upskilling and reskilling, seeing the underdog win and cheering you on from the sidelines. Scrappy from day one, this latchkey kid turned lifelong learner always laughs in the face of people saying "no, you can't". "Oh, I can't, you say?" she will respond as she immediately turns to Google and other open source resources to figure out how she can, in fact, do that 'impossible' task. Now that she has secured her spot at Degreed and turned asking "why and why not" into a career, she is ready to take on the next phase of life -- deploying her strategic life hack approach to the masses.

The number 8. Looks the same upside down, and when placed on its side represents infinity. Todd is the 8th child in his family and is in the process of raising 8 children. Todd has 8 fingers not including his thumbs as well as 8 toes excluding one large toe on each foot. He once ran 8 miles and it felt like an infinite loop. At least 8 businesses he has started have not generated sufficient revenue to sustain itself. 8 employees is a sign that the business is likely to succeed through the startup phase of business. There was one day when Todd visited 8 islands in the Philippines in one day! In roughly 8 hours from what he recalls... Traveling to the Philippine islands feels like an 8 on its side... when in reality it takes about 3 times 8 hours to get there from Utah. Prior to the time a Sales person completes 8 sales, you may consider him/her a rookie... Best to provide at least 8 hours of additional training for them to be comfortable with the product or its offering. Learning more than 8 products to sell in one day rarely goes well for anyone trying to transact business with at least 8 clients. Todd is a serial entrepreneur who has found at least 8 ways to generate revenue in what feels like infinitely different verticals

Batman's secret identity is Bruce Wayne, a wealthy American playboy, philanthropist, and owner of Wayne Enterprises. Batman originated from an incident in Bruce's childhood; after witnessing the murder of his parents Dr. Thomas Wayne and Martha Wayne, he swore vengeance against criminals, an oath tempered by a sense of justice. Bruce trains himself physically and intellectually and crafts a bat-inspired persona to fight crime. Batman operates in the fictional Gotham City with assistance from various supporting characters, including his butler Alfred, police commissioner Jim Gordon, and vigilante allies such as Robin. Unlike most superheroes, Batman does not possess any inhuman superpowers. He does, however, possess a genius-level intellect and is a peerless martial artist, and his vast wealth affords him an extraordinary arsenal of weaponry and equipment. A large assortment of villains make up Batman's rogues gallery, including his nemesis, the Joker.

Stephen Chase the Sales Weasel. You're probably thinking to yourself, why would a salesguy want to call himself a WEASEL? Well... 1. They’re Killing Machines They might have cute little faces, but weasels are also bloodthirsty. It’s a matter of necessity: they have super-fast metabolisms and need to kill and eat about half their body weight every day. As a result, they’ve become fearsome hunters. The weasel corners and grabs its prey, wraps its muscular body around the animal to immobilize it and then delivers a single killing bite to the back of the head, puncturing the skull or spinal cord. You know what other animal kills like that? The jaguar. 2. They Do a War Dance: https://youtu.be/ODEUK5sB5vE
