Leaderboard Get To Know You
First and foremost explain the genesis of your leaderboard name…
My original leaderboard name was kevin2016 and in 2017 Steven Little looked at me in camera and said “Hey Kevin you know its 2017”. So I changed my LB name to PharmaSpin because I’m a Pharmacist and work for a Pharmaceutical company. Didn’t love it but I got a few shutouts and started to connect with more people in the community. It stuck so I will go with it.
