If you are a traveling salesman with a better mousetrap, Leif is your man. He didn’t care for salespeople all that much until he realized they were entrepreneurs just like him. He has a penchant for finding a better price, or a less expensive way of getting there from here. He is also extremely busy, which means your odds of getting his attention are slim.
Despite our commitment to transparency on project, it continues to be a mystery as to who cuts Leif’s hair.
