Pedego CEO, Don DiCostanzo Speaks About Latest Trade [VIDEO]

30 08 2013

The CEO of Pedego, Don DiCostanzo was kind enough to record a video about his experience with the latest trade in my quest to a Tesla Roadster. Only thing is that he says that I’m trading up to a Model S which is not the case… Maybe he’s trying to tell me something… 🙂

Thanks Don and Jenny at Pedego for the shout out and helping me out! Now I just have to try one of these bikes!!

After a long hiatus, I am excited to announce that I’m back with a trade. While it wasn’t a trade-up per say… It’s just what I needed to get me back on track. Plus – it fits my themes perfectly. It’s actually the first EV in my trade up! How exciting! 🙂

Ever since I started my quest, I really wanted to make a trade with an e-bike company and I’m so happy to have reached out to the CEO of Pedego – Don DiCostanzo. Couldn’t have asked to reach a nicer man, I’m so grateful that he’s getting me back on track with this wicked product! Thanks Don! As a bonus, turns out he is also a huge Tesla fan – he owns a Model S (lucky man!)

I’m back! … WITH A TRADE! 10th trade completed.

14 08 2013

I know what everyone is thinking… Where have I been for over a year? What’s going on with my trade up? The answer is actually quite simple – I’ve been busy…. crazy busy.

It’s no secret that my life as a father/husband is my number 1 priority… My two little ones have certainly kept me on my feet lately! Who would of thought 4 and almost 2 year old’s would be so active!? But oh man do I ever love them… they always manage to melt my heart each day.

So anyways, with the busy family life; add the crazy hours at work and usual everyday activities to the mix… let’s just say I had zero time to work on my project. However, I didn’t give up…  I still managed to work on trading the HootSuite account whenever I could but I just couldn’t dedicate the time that I have in the past to update my blog, create videos, etc..

The good news is my persistence has paid off! WITH A TRADE! 🙂

The announcement of my 11th item will come shortly. Thank you all for your patience. Stay tuned…
